Issues unresolved[edit]

Controls locking up[edit]

Controls will frequently lock up through gamepads and mice. Keyboard input is unaffected. Possibly helped by reducing your mouse polling rate.

Issues fixed[edit]

Game runs too fast during gameplay[edit]

Fix game speed[citation needed]
  1. Install ThirteenAG's fix.
  2. Open TrueCrimeNewYorkCity.WidescreenFix.ini
  3. Increase the GameSpeed = 128.0 value (e.g. 200.0) to make game a little slower and smooth.
