Unhappy gta 3 problems

sponsored links

I have installed a copy of gta 3 but when I try to run it using the crack I get an error message:
"The application has failed to start because mss32.dll was not found."
I dont understand it because the dll file is in the gta 3 folder on ma c drive.
Trying to run it without the crack gives me an error message saying that it couldnt find ma cd drive.
Anyone know whats wrong with it?

Yes. Replace the original EXE with the cracked one... or better yet rename the orignal EXE first, incase you need it to install an official game update.

Use windows explorer to look at your cd1. There should be a folder called "crack". Inside this folder is a gta3.exe. Copy this file and then paste it into the directory where the game is located. When it asks you if you want to overwrite the original gta3.exe, say yes.
