    Does it NEED SP1? coz it says on the req. windows xp sp1? does it need it? Coz i cant be bothered downloading a 120 mb file on a 56 k and sp1 is completely useless.

    There a 'critical patch' that you need from M$ other wise the game sortta half loads, screen goes black then a 'donk' sound then back to desktop, i dont think its that bad.

    I have the patch for block yellow text, if anyone wants. Vice City works fine without SP1.

    its alright, its alright... i got it working perfect... on a Geforce 2 Ti, with 1024X768X16 X 2AA... with absolutely no slow downs or pings like in GTA3... so really it is the code of the game, not the hardware...

    Vice City is awesome by the way.. 100% improvement over GTA3... althought i do like the old radio better.. but it is funny hearing Lazlow and Furnado again... lol!
