In the 100% rules it says:

"Stop Timer at the end of the mission ‘The Time Has Come’ or ‘Something Sensible’ (Ending B or A). More specifically, either when you let go of Michael’s hand or when you shoot the petrol to light Trevor on fire. You can also use Ending C but it is far slower."

I'm assuming you can get 100% after any of those missions, so this seems wrong.

So I was doing the mission in Little Havana where you kill the Diaz brothers, and as I was chasing the last guy his car turned non-solid (I could drive through it). Other cars were also non-solid, but not all of them. This could be an issue during runs.

It reminds me of the glitch when you sometimes can't collect enemy drops or drug packages.

It would be nice to have a guide on which exotics to buy and when to buy them.

I don't know if this is already known or not, it's probably useless anyway. I just thought I should post here for documentation.

When you're in Helgen during the Unbound quest (after you gain control) you can fast travel to outside Helgen's gates by using the journal. Obviously you can't interact with anything anyway because your hands are bound so, as I said, probably useless.

So the current strat for killing Leo the Chef is to jump off the PCJ just as you approach him to run him over, this shortens the cutscene that is normally longer if you don't kill him immediately. But if you jump off the bike slightly before you'd normally do, the cutscene will not even start. I think this saves about 2 secs or so. The disadvantage of this is that it's harder to get the right angle to make the bike run him over if you're further away.

I've had this problem for a couple days: When I try to start Vice City I get "Unhandled exception: c0000005 At address: 006f6330". I have tried everything I can think of: DEP, compatibility mode, deleting save files and .set file, reinstalling multiple times.

My specs in case they would help: Retail version of VC Windows 10 Home Intel Core Pentium 2 Duo E7500 @ 2.93 GHz 4 GB RAM AMD Radeon HD 5450

It worked without problems just a few days ago.

Post any optimizations for various ILs in this thread.

You can park the bike forward a bit on Trial by Dirt to gain a tiny head start. I haven't tested it for the Landstalker challenge but probably works for that too.

Is there some place to download save files for the Japanese version?

Ever since I upgraded to Windows 10 I can't use Game Capture for VC. Is W10 the problem and how do I fix it?

How do I fly fast with the heli? The controls are weird as hell.

Example at 17:25 in the video:

Can someone post a translation of the menus in the JP version? Would be much appreciated.

Hi.

My computer is pretty bad and I'm new to this thing, what settings should I use for OBS?

Here are my specs:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1 Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @2.93 GHz 4 GB RAM ATI Radeon HD 5450

Thanks in advance. :)

I want to get into speedrunning this game and I'm wondering what keys are most effective for the controls, I didn't find any guide on this.

Thanks in advance :)
