Whilst impressive, I also see so many things wrong with these screenshots, I've just come off bug testing a few mods and I'm seeing the sloppy mistakes here on Rockstar's own screenshots!

That's one of my complaints Slim! A mod project tried that before and got nothing but negative feedback on it, so I encouraged the guys and helped them altere the GXT files to correct it so it would display VCS style, e.g. "Flash FM" instead of "FLASH FM" and it did look a lot better.

So yeah, to see Rockstar making that same mistake,'s just, WHAT?

Hope this gets put on PSN or XBL soon.

I really want to replay it and I'm too cheap to buy a PC controller.

I've played VC with a PC controller. It kinda sucks. The problem, as far as I can tell, is that the "Redefine Controls" page is set up poorly. On the PS2, you could have multiple uses for the same buttons, depending on the context (such as for when you grab a sniper rifle, or when you are in a car, et cetera.) But on PC, you can only set certain buttons to do certain things. And it's easy to end up with "Unbound" controls too. (The same problem plagues SA, but it's LESS of a problem there...)

I just stopped even playing this game on PC, and SA as well. I sort of almost wish that I still owned my old PS2, but on the other hand, maybe it's just time for me to move on, wait for the next gen consoles to come out, or wait for PCs to get good enough to play any game. Or something like that. Anyway, I'm just responding to your specific issue -- and all that I can say is: Save your money!

@matt_jon: It's exactly 1021MB according to iTunes.
