GTA2 - README FIRST! (c) 2004 Rockstar Games
--------------------------------------------

WARNING
-------
This version of GTA2 is modified from its original version to enable support for modern PC's
and current Microsoft Windows(R) platforms.

GENERAL
-------
- Task-Switching (such as using ALT-TAB) may produce undesirable effects and cause game
instability. It is recommended to not switch out of the game while playing.

General Video Problems -

Screenmode
----------
- to run GTA2 in a window, you must be running Windows with a 16-bit desktop
(i.e. 65536 colours). On some video cards, you may find that you have to
change the desktop to 16-bit even to run the game full-screen. You can do
this by right-clicking on your desktop and selecting "Properties" then
selecting the "Settings" tab and choosing a 16-bit "High Colour" colour
palette.

DirectX
-------
- you may find that the game says you have an inadequate version of DirectX
even though you have installed DirectX 8.1 (which is the minimum version
required). If this happens, simply re-install DirectX 8.1.

Video Drivers
-------------
- if you experience video problems, it may be necessary to upgrade the video
drivers on your system. Current drivers for various popular video cards are
included on the GTA2 CD. See drivers\readme.txt on the CD for more
information.

Known Video Card Problems -

ATI Rage Pro
------------
- For alpha display (i.e. see-through exploding scores & explosions) to work
correctly on this card, you must make sure that "Special Recognition" is
selected on the video tab in GTA2 Manager. However, on low-spec systems you
may find that this causes the game to run too slowly. In that case, you
should uncheck "Special Recognition" and run the game without alphas. This
will mean that the exploding scores are not see-through, so you may wish to
turn them off by unchecking "Exploding Scores".

Permedia 2
----------
- Make sure that "Special Recognition" is selected on the video tab in GTA2
Manager.

NVidia Riva 128
---------------

With this chipset, on-screen sprites can be displayed incorrectly in GTA2.
To solve this :
- Make sure that "Special Recognition" is selected on the video tab in GTA2
Manager.
- Go to the Riva 128 tab on your display properties (get this by
right-clicking on your Windows desktop).
- Select "More Direct3D".
- Change "Non-Filtered Texel Origin" to be "Center(x=texel/2,y=texel/2)"
not "Upper left corner(x=0,y=0)".

    First GTA game I ever played. Played the hell out of it on PSX and finished again on Steam.  I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to get an idea of how GTA started. I'm not really a fan of the first one because the camera made it impossible for me to play. But it's the concept which made the game evolve to what it is today.

    -BTW My top GTA games are:

    1. GTA Online (GTA V)
    2. GTA 2
    3. GTA Vice City
    4. GTA San Andreas
    5. GTA 3

    GTA IV wasn't really that interesting in my opinion...
    Honorable Mentions: Just Cause 2, Saints Row 2 and APB: Reloaded.

    This is what the readme says if you look closely by the first few lines, it works fine on both windows XP/Vista/7 and 8. I've used all and yes, I am one of the few people who like the new windows 8 :P
    If it doesn't though, Search the Rockstar forums, I can't help you, Sorry.
