This is kind of weird but, my vice city has this awkward issue were if i start a new game and play for a while, eventually there will be no people walking around, and no cars driving around. Then after a while when i got to the part were i could start buying property, some people would return but only in that area of the property, for example when i bought the print works and finished the missions for it people would be walking around (civilians and vercetti gangsters) but only in a small area around the print works. When i would leave the print works, the people were gone. Same thing is happening around the mailbu, only i have cars and no people, also the cars go a certain distance down the road were the malibu is, then they perform a u-turn and come back to the malibu. Please help me this is getting weird and i have no clue how to fix it:confused:
Hmmm, im not to sure the situation.
I do know however, all depending on the graphic settings your have, the distance you can see can be increased and decreased (how far you can see until the buildings and traffic disapear). This works with the people aswell.
About the u-turn, im not sure.
You could try saving your game then moving it to a new folder and un-install then re-install the game. If this is a program related error that is.
Have you used any cheats by chance? Some cheats are known to cause game errors from time to time and some once turned on cannot be turned off.
I have reinstalled several times but that doesn't seem to help. The only times i use cheats is after i have saved, i never save with cheats. and i've played with the draw distance to see if that was an issue, and it still makes no difference. There is a slight possiblity though, if this is possible that my brother might have saved with cheats, would that affect my saved game as well? See he started a game and cheated for a while, then right after (without exiting) he started another new game and played missions and saved. If the cheats cause glitches, would it cause a glitch in another saved game, or even after a new game was started could it still have a affect. (His save game has the same issue with people, only around areas that are owned by him, or save points).
Maybe you can try playing on a second computer if you have one?
Well, my only possiblity of playing it on i different computer would be if it were for mac. (Damn games don't come out for mac). Anyways i figured out that it isn't a program related error, it must be my saved games because, i downloaded someone elses 100% save game, and they have people and everything that you SHOULD have. So i assume i will just delete all of the saved games and try again. Meh, i really didn't get to far the first time.
I didn't make it!
I have a similar problem too. Theres no people or cars in my game. I am the only person in the entire city, except for the shop clerks. This happened after I completed the autocide mission. Before I completed the autocide mission, the game was perfectly normal. Can somebody pls help me?
what if you delete your saved games reinstall and start over again?buts its a different story if your soo close to finishing and have to start over :(
