it was made freeware a long time ago now, almost 2 years ago.

Still doesnt include the rockin soundtrack that made the game kick ass in the first place

I was so looking to close a warez thread (cept I can't heh) Nice link, time to go experience what started the series. Even if it's been freeware for a while, this is the first I've heard of it.

Why can't apogee/3drealms do this

This version hasn't been free for a while. It contains all the music and everything and is updated to work on xp.

grr stupid download... I got home and it said it timed out

I went to try again and now it says this:

We're sorry, but due to the overwhelming response this download has received we have had to limit the number of concurrent connections. Please try again later by simply clicking the link you received via email again. You may have better luck at off-peak times such as early morning or late night hours.
but it WILL be mine... muwahahahaHAHAHAHAHAHAHA *fart*

It's either tab or one of the function keys. It's been years since i played it so i cant really remember.

I think im gonna have to try and find an old P1/P2 with a voodoo/voodoo2 and perhaps a powervr and run win98 on it so i can play all the cool old games making their way onto abandonware sites.

Well I downloaded it, extracted it to a folder I created called GTA, double clicked the folder, had GTAINSTALLER.exe in it, double clicked that which brought up another extracter for the setup im guessing selected the GTA folder the first time and the C:/TEMP which it automatically choses on the second and third try and all 3 times after I hit extract it freezes...so I deleted it. Did everyone have to go through all those windows to get the game to work? By the way I have WinME

I came for the hatred.
I stayed for the ballbag.

yes it is a rather long and resource expensive process. but its worth free.

omit smiles and goes wall eyed as he returns to playing. thinking tohimself still "I wonder how you change the station."

::edit:: f5 wooo whooo. (to change station.) i was at my sisters for most of today watching her and my brother inlaw play games. (while trying to convince them to get gta) they seemed very attetive to them quickly fustrated by difficult parts. i saw it as kind of odd since i usually play quite passively (for the most part) dead in the head: not really paying attention much. do most people (you) play passivly or dedicated/fustrated? :::end of useless thought tangent:::

good night people.

What's the best way of downloading GTA? It keeps saying "download complete"; and when I try the zip file it appears to be corrupted, as it's only 283mb and pkunzip, er, doesn't!

I am still wondering if they will ever fix the framerate issues myself and many others are experiencing. It runs at what feels like a few FPS, unless the framerate limiter is turned off then it runs so fast it is unplayable that way instead. Much grr.

Old version? No, it's new. But it's plain old Grand Theft Auto, not the Grand Theft Auto III you're probably thinking of.
