Just extract files and play

Radio Stations:
During Installation, we offer the user the option to copy the Radio Station files from 
the "PLAY" disc to your hard disk. On some machines this will provide a performance 
benefit, though you will need to weigh up the benefits, as on slower machines it is 
preferable to have the Radio Stations being played from a device on a separate IDE 
channel. Note that whether you copy the Radio Stations to hard disk or not, the game 
still requires the "PLAY" disc to be in your CD / DVD disk at all times.

Save Games:
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City uses the "My Documents" directory of the currently 
logged in user to store the "GTA VICE CITY USER FILES" directory. This is where we 
store your save games, individual settings files and gameplay statistics. This was 
chosen to allow each user on a Windows 2000 or Windows XP system to have their own
set of saves, configurations and statistics.

When Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is uninstalled, we do not delete the "MP3", "SKINS" 
and "GTA VICE CITY USER FILES" directories. It is up to the user to remove these 


Grand Theft Auto: Vice City requires Microsoft DirectX 9.0 to run. As a consequence
we recommend that the video and sound drivers installed are also DirectX 9.0 compliant. 

DirectX Texture Compression:
Where available, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City will use DirectX Texture Compression. 
If the video card does NOT offer DirectX Texture Compression, then we require an 
EXTRA 635 MB of hard disk space to create the un-compressed textures (over and above the
915 MB minimum install / 1.55 GB maximum install).

Windows XP:
We recommend manufacturer distributed drivers for Windows XP (i.e. drivers that expose
the user controls for changing settings on the particular piece of hardware), instead
of the default drivers installed by Microsoft as part of the machine setup process. 

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City requires at least 128 MB of memory to run. In most cases 
on a computer with 128 MB of Ram, disk swapping will occur. For optimal performance
at least 256 MB is recommended.

Running Applications:
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City has been designed to take best advantage of the available
machine it is running upon, therefore we recommend that you close down all applications 
before running Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. We do not support the use of CD emulators,
and as such these programs will be closed down when run in the background. 

Video Memory:
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City requires a video card with at least 32 MB of video memory 
to run. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City will refuse to run if launched on a machine with
less than 32 MB of video memory. 

Intel Celeron and AMD Duron Processors:
These processors play slower than their direct MHz equivalent Pentium III and AMD 
Athlon, as a consequence we recommend 1.2 GHz as the base speed for these processors.


Sound Provider:
The first time you launch Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, we auto-detect the best sound 
provider for your available Sound Card. You can also manually select alternatives.
Providers which are not compatible with your Sound Card will not be selectable.

MP3 Volume Boost:
This setting allows you to assign an additional boost in the volume that your available
MP3 files are played back with. This will only be selectable if the game detects the
presence of MP3 files in the MP3 directory.

Dynamic Acoustic Modeling:
Turning off Dynamic Acoustic Modeling in the Sound Options will give a small performance

Screen Resolution:
Selecting lower Screen Resolutions in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City display setup will
allow faster gameplay on lower end machines. Also, using 16 bit color, instead of 32 bit 
color, will help in these circumstances.

Frame Limit:
We do not suggest disabling the "Frame Limit" in the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City display
Setup page, as this will lead to a more "variable" rate of playback.

We recommend that you make sure you have set your video card to VSYNC ON in your video
card advanced options (from Control Panel/Display Properties). 


The appearance of Tommy can be altered or changed by editing inside a paint program
a skin file. Skin files need to be 24 bit un-compressed bitmaps of size 256 * 256.
An example file is provided in your "SKINS" directory called "TEXTURE_GUIDE.JPG".
When applied, the skins will only affect Tommy's street outfit, and only in-game,
not in cut-scenes.

MP3 Radio Station files:
We have provided the ability to play the users own music files instead of the 
Radio Stations. Simply place your MP3 files into your "Grand Theft Auto Vice City/MP3"
directory, and then use the "change station" key to cycle to the MP3 radio station.
Use the MP3 boost volume control to add extra amplification to your MP3 music files
to equalize the volume relative to the Radio Stations and Sound Effects.

Stat Saving:
During a game, you can output the detailed list of your in-game accomplishments from
the STATS menu. On this menu pressing "S" will output a "STATS.TXT" file and a "STATS.HTML"
file to the "GTA VICE CITY USER FILES" directory of the currently logged in user.

Standard / Classic mode:
Standard mode allows for the control of Tommy with Keyboard and Mouse; Classic mode
is similar to the control system employed in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City on the 
PlayStation2 using a control pad.

Mouse Steering:
In Standard mode, there is an option to allow you to use your mouse to steer vehicles.
This is not available in Classic mode.

The last 30 seconds of gameplay is available as a replay to play back at any time.
To use a replay:-

F1 - Replay the last 30 seconds of gameplay. 
F2 - Save the last 30 seconds of gameplay as a file. 
F3 - Recall and show the last saved replay file. 


Video Drivers:
We recommend using the latest available Video drivers for your video card. Where
available use the video chipset manufacturers "Reference" drivers in preference to
video card manufacturer customized drivers or Microsoft WHQL certified drivers.

This means for nVidia based cards Detonator 4 series drivers, and for ATI based cards
Catalyst 3 series drivers.
