Grand Theft Auto 3 GTA3 help


When I try to play gta3 with cedega4.0.1 I get a splash screen and then an error message "Unhandled exception: c0000005 At address: 005ac3bb" and then nothing. Anyone know what's up with that? The transgaming website says gta3 is supported. I'm kind of lost.

Was it the official package or built from source(CVS)?. Try with a crack. Wine/Cedega can have difficulties passing through CD-protections, so probably the game think you have actually a copied disk. That should not be much of problem for Cedega official package though (but could).

Cracks can be found here:

but I did not say that :\

It's the official package from transgaming. Do you really think I could have been sold a pirated copy?

Nah, that's impossible. But even if your CD is original, you may need to use a crack for passing through Wine/Cedega. I've got a bunch of games to work with the NoCD crack. I highly recommend you to give it a shot...
