How to run GTA 3 with Wine

Filed under
Gaming
HowTos

This how-to will walk you through installing Grand Theft Auto 3 on Ubuntu Dapper with Wine version 0.9.9.

This how-to is the result of many hours spent dealing with wine-cvs, the latest stable wine, and the 'standard' wine that Dapper provides in the repositories. I HAD to use the version dapper provides because the newer version wouldn't let me install the game (it crashed), and the cvs version simply did not work.

This is a long process. First, get a Windows machine and install GTA 3 on it. Next go and download the patch to upgrade the game to version 1.1.

Click here to download the patch!

Now, insert the second CD into your drive and open it with windows explorer. Navigate to the 'audio' folder and copy everything that is inside it to C:/Program Files/Rockstar Games/GTAIII/audio/
