How to Downgrade GTA Vice City for Steam and Use Mods
GTA Vice City is a classic game that many fans still enjoy playing. However, if you have the Steam version of the game, you may encounter some issues with compatibility and performance. The Steam version of GTA Vice City is updated to 1.1, which fixes some bugs but also breaks some mods and features. If you want to use mods or restore some of the original features of the game, you will need to downgrade your game to 1.0.
Downgrading GTA Vice City is not very difficult, but it requires some steps and files that you need to follow carefully. Here is a guide on how to downgrade GTA Vice City for Steam and use mods:
First, you need to download the original 1.0 exe file for GTA Vice City. This file is the main executable of the game that runs it. You can find it here[^3^]. Just click on the download button and save it to your computer.
Next, you need to locate your GTA Vice City folder on your Steam library. To do this, open Steam and right-click on GTA Vice City in your games list. Then, select Properties, Local Files, and Browse Local Files. This will open the folder where your game files are stored.
Now, you need to backup your current 1.1 exe file in case you want to revert back to it later. To do this, find the file named gta-vc.exe in your GTA Vice City folder and rename it to something else, like gta-vc-1.1.exe.
Then, you need to copy the 1.0 exe file that you downloaded earlier and paste it into your GTA Vice City folder. You should now have two exe files in your folder: gta-vc.exe (the 1.0 version) and gta-vc-1.1.exe (the 1.1 version).
Finally, you need to run the game using the 1.0 exe file. To do this, double-click on gta-vc.exe or create a shortcut for it on your desktop. You should now be able to play GTA Vice City with the original features and compatibility with mods.
Some of the mods that you can use with the downgraded version of GTA Vice City are:
