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

No, it doesn't. ReadMe clearly says that Vice Cry requires a clean copy of GTA Vice City installed.

Well, the infamous mouse bug is not really our fault - it occurs on newer Windows systems. However, here's a very simple solution:
About problems with starting a game - you said that you've updated 1.7 to 1.8 - did you install 1.8 over already installed 1.7? 1.8 requires clean GTA Vice City. That's the main reason we've deleted all the previous Vice Cry releases from download section - because some people were thinking it's necessary to install everything, one after another.
So, be sure to install 1.8 on clean Vice City, then patch it with the Hotfix and that's all.

Vice Cry 1.8 is the 7th public released version so
the mod is not "dead" - it's finally finished (for me).
There is no need to spend another years working on this. It's just a mod for an old game - that's all :)

All I can say is I won't take over the mod. Kov has started Vice Cry and it would be basically rude to continue work without him.
I'm not sure what's going to happen in the future, if there's going to be 1.9 or whatever. We'll see, I guess.

Z modów jak widać Hud i animacje (cleo i z gta4 na chodzenie, bez których nie wyobrażam sobie żadnej gry) które być może są odpowiedzialne. W każdym razie szczęście że błąd nie występuje u innych. Ja zdążyłem przejść grę omijając te dwa miejsca które mi wadziły, i już na razie grał nie będę. Skoro tak to pozostaje mi podziękować za piękną, dobrze wykonaną robotę, bez której ponowne przejście gry nie było by możliwe w dzisiejszych czasach. Great job with the mod..
