Frequently Asked Questions: Grand Theft Auto Vice City

Here is a list of FAQs that have been asked quite a lot in this forum, however it is still currently under construction and will be expected to be complete soon. Please also note that this topic could change quite rapidly meaning that the titles, given section numbers and questions may change.

Each subject has been assigned a number, each heading is assigned a two digit number (0.0) while each question is assigned a three digit number (0.0.0), this makes searching for your question much easier. If you search up 11.1 then you will get the heading in the contents and the main heading of that topic which is "Bodyguards", however, if you were to search up 11.1.1 you would get the first question in that heading - this makes searching faster.
