SilentPatch for GTA III & GTA Vice City - General News | @ 01:35 PM MDT | By Ash_735
It's nearly 2014, so the chances of getting a new patch for the PC versions of Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City are kind of long gone, but sadly the game still has a few small bugs here and there which need fixing that were overlooked by people for years, but not anymore, here is the SilentPatch for both games, a nice and easy to install patch which brings back and corrects some features of both games just to bring them both slightly more up to date. What does each patch do? Well here are the patch notes:
BOTH Games

- Game now performs a bit better on high FPS. It doesn't freeze on fadeouts anymore, although it still has issues with car physics, gravity and sounds. Therefore it's still recommended to play with Frame Limiter set to ON

- Wet road reflections render properly again (just like with Road Reflections Fix)

- Reintroduced light glows under weapon/health/armour pickups, bribes, hidden packages and money pickups - they showed only on PS2 due to a bug in all PC versions

- All texts now have proper shadows (depending on chosen resolution, without the fix they'd appear thinner etc.)

Grand Theft Auto III ONLY

- Headlight coronas now display properly (as they do on PS2, XBOX and PC Steam versions). This headlight fix is probably the best one available, as it duplicates Steam EXE fix so NO bugs are present (like with other fixes, where headlights can be seen through the car etc.)

- Purple Nines Glitch has been fixed

- Rhino spawned via a cheatcode doesn't stay on map forever anymore

- Blista now can be lifted by a car crusher crane - instead, now it cannot lift Coach

- Shooting from M16 in 1st person mode now increments bullets fired stat properly (so you can't score Accuracy to be more than 100%)

- Trace (Destination) blip is now scaling to the resolution properly

- Garages-related and rampages-related texts now scale to the resolution properly

- Car reflections are now displayed correctly on Steam version

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City ONLY

- Rosenberg's lines which play when player is Busted work correctly now (just like with Rosie's Audio Fix)

- Some props in Malibu Club, Ocean View Hotel and Pole Position Club have been restored; more environment shows outside when player is in interior too (just like on PS2)

This patch works with ALL VERSIONS of the games, including the Steam version so if you've grabbed the games recently from the sale, then this should be one of the first things you add to it! You can download this patch from GTAGarage and check out the thread the creator made over on GTAForums.
