Development on Vice Cry project is over!

It means there will be no future updates/patches and anything officially
connected with Vice Cry mod.
Vice Cry 1.8 stays as the last version of the whole project. Absolutely the last one.

Thank you - the community - for being with us for all these years! :D
It was a great experience.

See ya next time!

Hey, i have a question: your vicecity.exe works with the original censored version.
Is it not possible to combine yours with the "blood patch" you can find here and there on internet ?
If you don't want to do it but there's a way to do so please tell me, the censored version really kills the game.

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.

Top notch mod! Mostly keeping it original, just in higher resolution!
