I'm running GTA Vice City with no problem, that's 98-XP. Don't understand why VC works but 3 doesn't.It looks like that game only supports Win 98 through XP.....from what I'm finding out for it.

hiGTA 3 from Steam will run correctly on Windows 10. You will need the widescreen fix to run the game at “true” widescreen.
A Widescreen frontend fix is an option. It will fix some UI bugs (menu fading, crosshair accuracy, etc.) and scale the menu items correctly.
GTA 3 may not capture your mouse.
You can install Dual Monitor Tools and assign a key combo to lock your cursor to one screen.
Setup is pretty easy
- Install GTA 3 from Steam/etc.
- Download widescreen fix and frontend fix. Extract both archives into your GTA 3 install directory (ex: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto 3). Overwrite any files if prompted.
- Launch gta3.exe and install DirectPlay if prompted
- You may need to close Steam and launch gta3.exe directly the first time if the game crashes after installing DirectPlay.
I'm a little late to this party, but I have installed GTAIII in the last couple months and it works just fine with some easily installed mods/patches. The "silent patch" did the trick for me (also fixed the widescreen). Also, there are just some really cool mods for this game and Vice City that can contribute to replayability.hi
Thanks for the advice, but before buying I want to be sure that it will work 100%.
is it true what you said and will it work?
