By "patch" are you referring to the Windows Hotfix for XP?

If not, and you're using XP.....you need to get that update file....

If you already tried that, I'm clueless...

:confused:

Morpheus is right, you need to patch DirectX...

Here is a link to the file you need all text probs are sorted once this is installed.

If you dont trust this link since you dont know me then just look in your gta3 readme file its the same, so its the proper patch.

Is this Service Pack 1 for Windows XP ?

If so what does it do , change anything ? fix bugs ?

You can tell by the (rather small) size of the file this is definitely not the full service pack 1 for XP. All this update does is patch the file d3d8.dll (at least I think that's what it's called) to a newer version that takes care of this particular GTA3 issue. I'm using the patch and the game runs perfectly.

As a side note, I found this "fix" is included in XP SP1.

Tested with latest build and works like a charm... :D
