Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "handling.cfg" file in the "grandtheftautovicecity\data\" folder. You can change the velocity of the bikes, cars, boats, helicopters, and airplanes in the game.
Better game performance
If you have an updated PC and exceed the highest graphics and performance requirements of the game, using an OS like as Windows Vista, Windows 7 or later, and are experiencing issues such as lag, slow movement, or mouse movement not working, do the following. Enter the location where the game was installed (for example, "C:\Program Files") and look for the executable file for the game. Right click on it. Click "Properties", and under the "Compatibility" tab check the "Run this software on compatibility mode:" box and select "Windows 98/Windows ME". Then, click "Apply" and close. Run the game and configure its graphic parameters to the highest values possible, including effects and screen resolution, and disable VSync if available. Then save the changes. Exit and restart the game. Your game should now be running with smooth and clear graphics, no lagging, and mouse movement working correctly at all times.
