GPD Win 2 and older Games like GTA3/GTA-VC
« on: January 12, 2019, 01:21:24 am »
OK, so this is interesting. Both these Games are from the Retail CDs......

GTA3 keeps saying I need to run it in Admin Mode, but it does not do anything. Tried all the Versions of Windows it should work on in Compatibility Mode.

Vice City is very interesting.....it is rotated 90 Degrees Right, into Portrait Mode. LOL. Also, does not matter if it is in Compatibility Mode or not.

Is this a Win10 thing, or a Hardware Issue?

Tried doing that along with others on

But now, 3 still does not start, and VC apparently starts, but the Window is not coming up. Only way I know it is running is to CTRL+Shift+Esc and look in the Processes Tab.

Edit: I applied the 1.1 Update Patches to both Games. 3 now runs......but now BOTH are looking like this:
