    grand theft auto vice city does not work well on the 95 OS i had this exact problem. I just had to get a new computer :-(. I got it to work, where there was lagging and glitching every inch, i dont know if its worth it. but then again you might have a better system then i had at the time Good Luck!

    A computer using Windows 98 will likely have a weak video card.
    However, we can't be sure of this without the computer system specifications.

    You can provide system information with a DxDiag.txt
    using the Microsoft DirectX Diagnostic Tool.
    This is how to run the tool:

    Start > Run... > dxdiag > OK > Save All Information...

    Open the DxDiag.txt with Notepad and then copy
    and paste the top quarter of the text file into your post.
    This part has the most important information.

    yes it sounds as though your video card aint good enough my old 98 system (few years ago now!) had an 8mb card so you might have to upgrade the card (if its worth it) or just get a new computer! which would probably be the best option because if you want to play any decent games your going to need a graphics card better than what you have and you would want a bit of RAM to play reasonably fast paced games or you are going to be faced with a lot of lag.
