Forums Help Desk Help! GTA 1 Graphics issues

I downloaded GTA from Rockstar's Website and everything installed correctly, I choose my character and get through the menus just fine but when I actually get into the game the screen rapidly switches between a clear image and a garbled one. Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm using and EVGA Nvidia GeForce 8500GT.

What version of NVIDIA drivers is used? See it in DxDiag.exe or in Windows Device Manager.

6.14.0011.8520, also I noticed that if I install my original cd copy of the game and run it through dos box it will work fine if I choose the option to run it in high color mode or low color. 3dfx mode does not work. This leads me to believe that this is a DirectX issue. Thats about all I can gather.

Try this one or even older, i`m encountered some graphical issues in old games with NVIDIA drivers higher than 180.XX JFFulcrum 09:06, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
