Try disabling v-sync. Disabling v-sync also speeds up load times considerably when starting the game.

Same for me, but how many times do you need to access the menu?

No mouse problems on the menu here... that's a weird bug.

Anyway even the Steam version should have a PDF instruction manual somewhere, look that up. The key to call a cab is not a weird one, it's one of the WASD-area keys.

PC version was never censored in AU. Only console. Even then it was fully uncensored once you got the Lost and the Damned DLC.
Another reason OFLC is a joke.

If you want to check see if you can pick up a hooker and take her to a quiet spot, if it zooms out and Nico doesn't say a word it's censored. If the zoom stays roughly were it is and Nico talks all the way through it. It's the uncensored version. As far as I know that's the only thing changed for the AU release.

Yea, enter the cheat codes into the phone so you get full weapons load out and cars on demand. Nothing like firing an RPG into a crowded street corner and hopping in your Turismo for a chase with the cops.
