GRAND THEFT AUTO: MAX PACK includes GTA1 and both its mission packs London 69 and London 61, along with the ingame radio stations.
It is meant for newer systems like Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.
It tries to be a proper complete pack based on Dosbox like GOG would do, which can run from a single executable and replace Steam's GTA release, and has good compatibility and performance out of the box.
As this is basicaly Dosbox, you can tweak it all the way you want by editing dosbox.conf. Just always pay attention to keep the bottom [autoexec] section intact.
As previously implied, it can replace Steam's GTA1 release if you extract the content of the archive in the WINO folder (see readme below).
Screenshots + Readme to follow:
GRAND THEFT AUTO: MAX PACK gathers GTA1, London 69 & 61, both soundtracks. It is meant for recent Windows systems like Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. City maps are in the DOCS folder. 1. INSTRUCTIONS +STEAM 2. TROUBLESHOOTING & PERFORMANCE 3. CHANGELOG 4. CREDITS 5. LEGAL 1. INSTRUCTIONS +STEAM ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ INSTALL: Just extract the content of the archive to a new folder. STEAM: Extract the content of the archive into the WINO folder to launch the pack from Steam (it will replace the main executable). (Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto\WINO) The Steam overlay should work fine with this pack's default settings. GLIDE: Run nGlide_config.exe to set Glide settings. Recommended settings: Screen resolution: By desktop Aspect ratio: Preserve original Refresh rate: By app (Default) Vertical sync': On (Default) Gamma correction: 0.8 3Dfx logo splash: Off TOP MENU BAR: If the top menu bar appears ingame, hit ALT+ENTER two times. WINDOWED: It is possible to run the pack in windowed mode by editing the file dosbox.conf with a text editor and change the line: fullscreen=true to fullscreen=false The game will then run in a window at the game's original resolution. This can also be changed by editing the following line: windowresolution=original to windowresolution=1024x768 for example. MAC OSX: This pack is also available for Mac OSX, search it on Google! LINUX: The pack works with Dosbox SVN builds for Linux. As you're on Linux, I expect you to know your way around. i.e. just get it to load dosbox.conf. Wine can run the pack as well by the way. WIN XP: You don't really need this pack as the Rockstar Classics release works on Windows XP. You can download Dosbox and drop (only) the main executable in the pack's main folder to get it working though. You can also search for ThirteenAG's GTA1+Widescreen Pack. 2. TROUBLESHOOTING & PERFORMANCE ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ TOP MENU BAR: As said up there, if the top menu bar partially appears ingame, just hit ALT+ENTER twice (2x), to exit and re-enter fullscreen mode. GAME IS SLOW: a. Test the Glide mode, it might perform better than normal mode. b. Ingame, press F11 and lower the resolution to 640x480x32. c. Run the game in a WINDOW as explained in point 1. up there. DISABLE MUSIC: Sound and/or music can be disabled from the game menu. LONDON 69 CUTSCENES: For some reason, the cutscenes don't play properly within London '69 in normal mode. Try to bypass them or use either the Glide mode or 8bit mode (from the setup) to play them correctly. That bug also generates hundreds of screenshots within the game files. The launcher deletes them upon starting and quitting the game in that mode. CRASHES ON INGAME RESOLUTION CHANGE: Delete PLAYER_A/E.DAT files from folders \GTADATA and \GTADATA\UK. It can also be done from the Options panel in the launcher. This also resets the scores. LOW COLOR/RES GTA: The 8bit version of each game can be launched from their respective setup which can be found in  Options >  Run Setup. London 61 lowres mode is unofficial and incomplete (based on L'69 exec). DOSBOX SAVE STATES: Save states sadly make the Glide mode crash. If you want to use save state, you have to play in normal mode. GLIDE WRAPPER ISSUES: dgVoodoo2 is an alternative to the included nGlide that you can download and try in the latter's place. Just make sure to replace the original glide2x.dll with dgVoodoo2's and put nglide_config.exe aside. 3. CHANGELOG ^^^^^^^^^^^^ V1.3: Minor tweaks. More bugs and infos referenced in the Readme. V1.2: Split Mac version apart. Fixed UK setups and 8bit modes. Fixed a Glide mishap. V1.1: Improved launcher. Added Glide mode. Experimental Mac OSX support. Base ingame resolution set to 800x600x32. New README.TXT. v1.0: First release. Spiritual successor to the "LONDON 69 & 61 for XP" pack. 4. CREDITS ^^^^^^^^^^ This pack is using Dosbox DAUM and nGlide 1.05. Pack by Toshiba-3, 2016. 5. LEGAL ^^^^^^^^ Sadly, this pack and its distribution are probably illegal one way or another. If you decide to share this pack online, expect that your publication might be moderated/truncated/deleted if moderators don't feel like tolerating links with questionable legality. The initiative of this pack comes from the fact the Steam release of GTA1 doesn't work well or at all for many people, but also that Rockstar made GTA1 and London 61 freely available online for a while (L'61 still is). It is expected that people interested in this pack already own GTA1 at least once (be it a physical copy or here on Steam) and I personally think that this is a reasonable expectation. That is obviously just my personal standpoint on the matter and I totally understand that views on this might differ greatly. However I've applied this state of mind while retro-modding/gaming for years now and must say it makes for a more serene approach to enjoy and modify old games.
Don't hesitate to share your feedback with me!
Especially if people try it on Mac/Linux :)
