Every game gets old in terms of graphics. The hits from the past fall into oblivion for various reasons,
but undoubtedly the most significant of them ispoor -as for our times- graphic quality.

Grand Theft Auto Vice City is presently a collection of blatant textures and models,
 which certainly don't make the game more enjoyable.

Vice Cry is a modification that aims to prolong the life of the game,
and make one of the best parts of the GTA series more entertaining to play.

We couldn't make a good decision for a long time. Your opinions, comments and arguments let us see, that there is no perfect solution, no ideal option. We've decided to make a plan of development, which we would like to present you:

Vice Cry 1.8 is going to be released in next few weeks (from 3 to 10 weeks, approximately). It will feature everything we've done so far and we're proud of. The last part of the map we will renovate is Ocean Beach.

We're going to start the postproduction and final testing, and after that - bugfixing and optimization work.

The main archive is going to be divided into few smaller ones, containing particular grups of objects (vehicles, peds, weapons, not remodelled buildings, etc.).

Main archive's division into a few smaller ones is a consequence of 1.8's fluent development - we haven't done anything with peds nor weapons so far, but we will take care of them in the future. Thanks to this solution, our work and final patch installing process are going to be a lot easier and fast.

Furthermore, we've added one more addon made by non-team member, which is Adtec_224's plugin - and I'll be honest, we didn't receive any message from this author - we've been waiting for it since last year's september. If Adtec_224 shows up and don't let us use his plugin in Vice Cry, of course we will remove it, as soon as it's possible.

Rest in peace

This mod is great. Anyone else have semi-transparent blocks in front of each vehicle's headlights?

It's known VC bug. Try this:

You need CLEO installed in your game.

First I want to say thank you to the Vice Cry team for the hard work in really making an old favorite look a heck of a lot better. It is truly awesome what has been updated so far.

Second I am really looking 1.8 so when it is done I will definitely have a go at the entire game again with the updated stuff.

Third I wanted to throw out my two cents for getting the Steam version of Vice City to play 1.7.2 because I really wanted to play this mod and MADE my Steam version be able to run Vice Cry.

Easy way I made Vice Cry work for me: Unleash Vice City from Steam!

1. Just copy the core Grand Theft Auto Vice City folder and drop the copy into any drive.
2. Delete all CLEO related files.
3.Install Vice Cry 1.7 - 1.7.2 into separate folders.
4. Manually drop all the Vice Cry 1.7 files excluding the CLEO related ones into the copied folder of Vice City. Let ALL GTA Vice City files be overwritten by Vice Cry 1.7.
5. Patch with 1.7.1 and overwrite any conflicting files
6. Patch with 1.7.2 and overwrite any conflicting files

Steam is the root of many troubles in not being able to play the mod. Steam Slave version always had my game have half a loading bar filled before it crashed. Steam does not do well with many older games that mods can be applied to. It overwrites them with unneeded updates and breaks everything. Going in offline mode and trying to make it work is a waste of time. I know cause I tried. This mod is worth breaking Vice City out of Steam.

Yes, our work focuses on graphic refreshing, not changing the Vice City. We didn't add any new weapons nor vehicles, so basically, it's a regular Vice City you already know, but of course, highly refreshed.
New features (like brand new interiors) in 1.8 will not affect the storyline at all, so don't worry :)
