Updates:

Grand Theft Auto III: Definitive Edition <UPD 9> [14.03.2021]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The patch has been updated and the following changes have been made:

• Added "III Passengers".
• Added "IIIBreakableWindshields".
• Replaced icons when playing with a gamepad. They are now displayed in HD quality and correspond to the buttons on XONE and PS4.
• Added "d_hud_sniper_fix. cs" to correct the aiming position when using a sniper rifle.
• Partially redesigned "hud.txd". Now the radar map will not "climb" out of the circle, but will always strictly remain in it.
• Rebuilt "particle.txd" - this should remove black bars instead of bullet shots, and also solve crashes on some PCs.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Do not forget that the update should only be installed on a clean game. There may be problems with saves in the form of various bugs. Recommend starting a new game!
