    Just reinstalled GTA on my machine for "old times sake". Basically, with the frame limiter on the game runs so slowly it is untrue but when i turn it off it runs so fast it is unplayable. Is there a way to reduce the effect of the frame limiter??

    Cheers

    what are your system specs?

    you should be able to increase the resolution to slow down the game after the limiter is off...


    so... once you are in the game press f8 to toggle the limiter and then press f11 to change the resolution to a higher one. (i'd try the highest and then come down if your system can't handle it

    hope this works

    they also say that the display settings should slow it down, maybe you should download the new version? i think they modified it to run on modern computers
