Faded main menu & other glitches *FIX*
The reason the main menu is faded out regardless if the frame limiter is on or off (same goes with the frame sync setting) is because it doesn't do what it's supposed to.

When on the main menu, the framerate is higher than 60. If it was capped to 30 like it should be, this wouldn't be an issue. Sadly this is a side effect of having the "fixed" EXE for steam. This allows headlights to glow like on the PS2 version.

Other side effects happen to be darkly textured cars. This is easily fixed by replacing the particle.txd file with another one found in another thread here, at the GTA3 Steam Forums. This method sadly doesn't fix the dark car bug in the opening cutscene. I'm not sure about other cutscenes.

If you want your game 100% fixed and working the way it should you'll need to cap the framerate to 60. and install the PC to Xbox conversion mod. This will give you better graphics, less EXE related bugs, and no issues while playing. I have encountered issues while trying to install it on a fresh install though. I also suggest that you download the widescreen fix if you're playing on a widescreen/high resolution monitor. Even if you don't have a monitor like that, the widescreen fix will make the hud less intrusive and "more HD".

One thing to note is that merely downgrading to GTA 3 V1.0 will completely fix all problems, and make the game able to be modded to a much finer degree. I can't find a way of doing so without just outright downloading a V1.0EXE, which is obviously illegal.

I hope this thread has helped.

EDIT: This is being moved to the guides section, a link will be added when it's done.

I just found this myself and it works.

Tell me more about this xbox mod... Does this disable the replay feature that speedrunners are now usings to get rid of wanted stars?

I'm not actually sure. I would say yes.
