    hello:

    if you have a problem with stuttering in gta3
    i've located a cure

    it worked for my machine

    i can drive for miles and it runs smooth
    \

    this involves the bios
    so try at your own risk

    if you mess with the bios you could mess up your computer


    if you want to give it a try


    go into your bios

    look for the agp aperture size or agp memory or similar

    its setting are from 4mb to 256 mb so you will know when you find it
    change it to 4 mb

    this i believe forces the card to use its memory
    (at least for gta3)
    -this might make other games suck:)

    let me know if it works for you

    and please explain it better than i did


    cheers

    btw

    i recommend these settings

    600x480 16bit

    frame sync on
    frame limiter on
    trails on

    the games looks way better

    and when its foggy it looks so cool


    i have
    1.2ghz duron
    o/c to 1.35
    396 ram
    k7s5a
    geforce2 mx 400 64mg card
    win xp

    this game is finally better

    i think it runs better with trails on

    the picture quality is awesome

    i like that feature

    btw
    if you turn off the frame limiter

    the games speeds up quit well

    they both work good for me


    cheers

    different settings will work on different rigs..

    I run the game on 1280x1024 with full everything and it runs silky smooth... but then it all depends..

    apperture size is generally recommended to be 1/4 of your system memory or an approximation... therefore I leave mine @ 128... no real performance difference between that and 64 which it was by default... on benches even no difference...

    but like I said every rig performs a little differently...

    when i set it to 4 mg and use 3dmark

    i get a lower score by a few hundred

    but when i use it to play gta3
    it no longer stutters

    remember to set you apperture size back to normal when you want to play something else
