If your computer starts up in the 24 bit version of the game with fuzzylooking graphics, try re-selecting the screen mode from the F11 menu. Thisshould cure this problem. High colour GTA uses a built-in version of the “univbe” display driver toprovide its multitude of 15, 16 and 32-bit display modes.
If your video cardis not recognised by the univbe check, or if you change your video card andthe check does not update to it, try running uvconfig. exe in the gtadosdirectory. If that doesn’t work, try running 24-bit GTA by typing”gta24 -nounivbe” in the gtados directory. This will cause it to skip univbeand use your video card’s native drivers instead. Alternatively, get hold ofthe latest version of univbe from SciTech Software, and run it as a TSR beforerunning GTA.Order now
