Just A big heads up, GTA 3 works on the 101 g9 (1.5 turbo).
It wont show on the market but if you have a copy already on a rooted phone then you can back it up using titanium back up and side load it on to the archos. it need around 500mb of data when installed.
ive set mine running at full res, all shadows etc and it runs flawlessly!!

edit, ive just emailed the dev so hopefully it will soon be active on the market especially for us who have already payed for it.

Nice to know, out of curiosity why wasnt it showing in the Market? Is it another Nvidea Tegra exclusive?

The Android Store only lets some apps load to some devices. It's google's way of making sure people don't buy apps they can't run properly on thier device. problem is they don't actually test every app on every device, is they basically disallow people from testing it for them to see if it works. I had this problem with my Archos 70 250gb. I'd try to download the app, and the store wouldn't let me because it wasn't "compatable". I was able to get the app file for a few apps directly from the developers and install them manually and they worked just fine. It's just Google protecting themselves from "You sold me an app I can't use" lawsuits. If your Android device isn't authorized for an app, the app simply won't appear in an app store search.

I found it in the market okay. It didn't appear in my list of apps as I has previously bought it for use on another tablet. However, I searched and it appeared.

Believe it or not., I've never played Grand Theft Auto (any version) I have always wanted to but never had anything good to play on.

I just looked in market and can not find GTA 3 or any GTA version, how do I find it? Any recommendations on other free or pay games for car guys on the 80 G9?

Thanks.

I downloaded GTA3 on my 101 g9 (1.5 turbo) HDD yesterday and it downloaded all the game data OK but when I start it, it loads for about 10 seconds then goes back to the home screen. Is there a trick to get it to run?

GTA3 is on sale for 1$ this weekend:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... kstar.gta3

So what's the verdict? Works fine on all Gen9's ?
