Bug and Fixes.
Have you run into any problems? have you found the solutions?

Creating this sticky so people find answers more quickly than googling.

I'll try to keep the OP updated with any solutions to common problems you might find, but I can't make any promises.

Game Crashes.
Too many reasons why this might happen.

One of the first things to try is going to the VC install folder ({dir path]\Steam\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto Vice City), right-clicking on gta-vc.exe and setting the compatibility mode to "Windows 98"

Another reason might be Data Execution Prevention, you can add the GTA executable to it using the steps on this page:http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Change-Data-Execution-Prevention-settings?SignedIn=1

Mouse is unresponsive.
In some cases multi-core processors don't play well with the 3D era of GTA.

One solution is to start the game, Alt-Tab, bring out Task Manager and set the game's affinity to a single core. (Right click on the GTA process)

You can also change Steam's affinity to one core, this makes any game launched by Steam will use the same core.

I can't fly the skimmer.
Turn on your frame limiter.

High framerate has an odd effect on certain vehicles, but is more noticeable on the Skimmer.

I am using widescreen mode, but my aim is off-center
GTA:3 and GTA:VC's widescreen method bugs the reticle, the only way to correct this is to use a file named Widescreen Remake[www.gtagarage.com]

Read the description on the page to get it to work/downgrade.

Não se esqueçam galera, baixem e apliquem o "Downgrader", pois só assim o WideScreen Fix erá funcionar corretamente. O fix apenas funciona na versão 1.0 do jogo.

Don't forget guys, download and apply the "Downgrader" to run correctly the WideScreen Fix. The fix only can run in 1.0 version.
i recomment to use windows 98 mode instead xp, this can fix all mouse and cpu problems (same for gtaIII and gta s.a.) you have to run steam as admin (required when you use win 98 mode on game)

remember also to add .exe file of game on DEP exclusion

Y-axis sensitivity fix: https://github.com/ThirteenAG/Y-Axis_Sensitivity_Fix_gta3vcsa/releases

Download Y-Axis_Sensitivity_Fix_gta3vcsa.asi and put it near gta-vc.exe ! :) Have fun!

Also, it would be better to link directly to the widescreen fix: http://thirteenag.github.io/widescreen_fixes_pack
