How hard was for Rockstar Games to prot the game for Android? For another PC games will be hard to port them to Android?

so it isn't too slow gpu?
maybe it's optimized for MIPS not FLOPS or something like that in soc architecture?

BTW if someone has gamefile with about 100% pass please post it (save from PC don't work)

In the first post this was said: just download attached zip file, and copy extracted file (gta.set) to: /sdcard/Android/data/com.rockstar.gta3/files/GTA3 - backup existing one

The thing is, i didnt have gta.set to back up in the first place, and also says u need a computer when u dont.

All u need to do is download the game from google and install, it will then download the sd files, then download the rar file in the first post and use androzip to extract the gta.set file to where it says in the first post :)

And that's called pirating which is not something we talk about or share at XDA.

was getting some crashes from the sgs2 set but if you start a new game they seem to vanish. Nothing editable about the set files, at least I had a look in notepad an its junk.

Thanks for this. But I have a problem on Xperia Mini pro which has a 320x480 display.
Without the .set file i can see everything on the screen, albeit the font is really small since its shrinked.
But with your .set file, UI elements are being rendered as if i had a high res phone (the game itself, the 3D part of it, is rendered perfectly) so i can only see the top left of the UI which is only radar. No on foot/driving controls and such.
I've tried moving all those on screen controls to the top left with original set file, hoping they will stay there when i overwrite the new .set file, but they dont.

Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

PS. The game actually looks rather weird with the original set file. Its like its being rendered in high res and then shrunk to fit on the screen, so it looks jagged and blurry. Whereas, with your .set file the game is being rendered (except the UI) in native resolution so it looks much nicer. The added effects are actually not that important.

And you're being overly sensitive. The game is from the Android Market FROM Google in the first place...Rockstar doesn't sell the game direct. :D

Mentionin google is allowed on this site, as its not a pirating site. If ppl thought i ment google as in pirating then thats up to them coz i didnt mean it that way. Argument finished as this post isnt for arguing

Have tried restoring controls to defaults?
and double tapping the icon in ui editor will resize it, all elements have 3 sizes, small medium big. for your screen if you resize all to small, you'll free alot of space on screen i think :)

You are a savior! I've tried everything, except for the Reset to default and it works perfectly now. Thank you very much!

Whoa OK. The graphics are much better but the phone heats up like a ************ and is choppy now. It sucks to know that our sensations can't handle it at its full glory.

    This will be very helpful for those, who succeed starting the game and playing, but don't like the graphics :)


    just download attached rar file (gta3_full_effects.rar), and copy extracted file (gta.set) to: /sdcard/Android/data/com.rockstar.gta3/files/GTA3
    - backup existing one

    Basically it is .set file from Xperia Play :)

    and that's it, now all of the effects are enabled (such as car lights, traffic lights, raindrops and a lot more)

    See some screens to see difference, normal on the left and with effects on the right.


    Some users experience not smooth run or some bug's. I believe this happens if you use this with Chainfire3D, as comes some misconfiguration i think.


    For me gta3 run's great and smooth. But mine gta3 works without chainfire3d or any other external app help.



    Added original gta.set to attachment for those who want to rollback


    Added .set file for Samsung Galaxy SII, if this your's phone, try this one first :)


    Enjoy playing! :)

    For me it wasn't the gta.set file that was causing the choppiness as I experienced the same thing before extracting the set file. Hope this helps

    It works but the resolution is higher so the buttons and controls are almost in the middle instead of the right side of the screen..

    Controls are fully adjustable in options, so all ok here, just adjust them as you need, or reset to defaults, this must align them too :)
