GTA Free

The Rockstar Classics Free Downloads Page (thanks GTA center) now offers downloads of the original version of Grand Theft Auto for no charge. The game is a 328 MB download, and while the code has been updated to operate on modern systems under Windows, they cannot guarantee the results on any individual set-up, and the installation and use of this program is at your own risk.

In case anyone else is looking for a mirror, fileplanet and fileshack both have it. Sheesh, I've been trying to download it from Rockstar ever since this was posted.

I was able to get normal performance by using F8 and also running the game with CPUKiller (shareware), simulating a P133. You can get it here:

YMMV, etc.

BTW, now Freeloader requires you to get a subscription to D/L GTA2 (and GTA). The subscription is $107/year. I think this free D/L is a slightly better deal

Now if it would just work. I've been checking the site all day, but it's still overloaded.

Guys, figured out how to fix (partially) the fact that GTA is running like ass on our new rigs... F8 turns on/off the "frame rate limiter". Works like a champ now, but runs almost too fast! Just crank up the resolution to get framerates back to normal.

this game was the best of all GTA series! I played this a lot in multiplayer with friends and we were literally dying laughing. it was so freaking funny... too bad there are no such funny games anymore now
blood was also such a funny game.

I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.

Hey Hyatus, maybe you could tess us how Rockstar's planned Multiplayer patch for GTA3 is coming along.

The possible pain, suffering and sacrifice of discovery are by no means an excuse to remain ignorant.

The bartering of things sought earned are by a means which only little men can abide by and hope to achieve.

Has anyone else actually played it, yet?
Runs and sounds like ass on my system.
Seems clear it was built for a different generation of hardware and operating systems.

The link all the news sites provided never worked for me, but www.rockstargames.com/classics/ eventually did.
(Checking again, it may just have been that I checked at midnight...that URL forwards to the IP link in the news.)

This is lovely. Rockstar's support of GTA is better than its support of GTA3. Perhaps in 5 years we'll finally get a new GTA3 update.

The Freeloader GTA thing required you to click on loads of ads and spend a certain amount of time at random sites in order to earn credits after which you could download it.

Which was a bit of a hassle really.

I think it goes without saying, although I am, that anytime someone uses The system is down its from strongbad.
