Welcome to the official Grand Theft Auto IV bugs & glitches topic! Here, you are welcome to discuss anything out-of-the-ordinary you might encounter while playing the game. This includes various types of glitches and unusual bugs you wouldn't normally find.

Keep it as a general discussion thread rather than creating a new one (unless it's really ground-breaking).

I am playing GTA IV on the XBOX360 and the game sometimes slows down or freezes/crashes, this has happened a few times mainly during times of a lot of activity or when driving at fast speeds for a long distance.

I have exchanged the game for another copy and same problem occurs, It can't be my console as all my other games work fine, hopefully this isn't going to be a major problem and no one else will experience the problem.

If the game has frozen/crashed for anyone else could you let me know, I hope my local shop hasn't got a dodgey batch of discs.

The slowdown in framerate is understandable, but if there was a major let down, ie the game "crashing," I think someone would have said something by now. It would also be mentioned in the reviews.

.. Where did you get your copy from?

I saw a glitch on a live feed, there was a guy who stood on a low wall and tried to get on a bike that was on the ground and somehow he got stuck upside down underground. You could see the wheels sticking up of the curb and he had to load a saved game, looked hella funny xD

Seen in the 1Up Review. Blow the tail of a chopper off, the rear wheel stays magically in place.

Yes, that's true.

If your car stalls from too much damage, just call 911, and then your vehicle will start when you press the gas. Then hang up the phone and you're all set to go, your car now runs. smile.gif

Really? That happened a lot in SA on the PC. (I saw it happen to a friend.) Oh well. At least the game is still fun! biggrin.gif
And by 'ENDO' you mean wheelie, right?

Basically the opposite of a wheelie, so you've got the back part of the bike in the air as opposed to the front.

2 definite bugs have happend to me.

1. I tried to go for a helicopter ride with Brucie and was driving a 2 door car when I arrived. He has two girls with him, and he then said 'let's get in; chopper ride'. They just stood at the side of the car. I couldn't move the camera or anything, but the world was still happening around me. I turned the game off after a minute or so.

When I went to do it again I took a 4 door car and had no problems. I also took a 4 door when I went boating aswell due to the fact that the two girls are there aswell.

2. As someone has mentioned; I tried getting on a moped in team mafiya work as it was an objective. I stuck mehead first on the ground and the bike in the air.

I've noticed standard SA style bugs where the wheels pop through the fender model when the suspension is compressed alot.

Also, in the video where Niko is banging a hooker in his car, her leg pops out of the door a few times (partially).

I've heard theres a slight late pop up problem here and there, is this true? I hope not.

Are you playing it on Xbox 360? If so, has anyone noticed any PS3 bugs yet?

Well, the first Vlad's mission.
You riched the shop, had a conversation with owner.
Then you have to get back to Vlad.
Smash the window and get to the shop throw the window. Then go deeper and u will come down to the floor. Then u will fly some sec (longer than in prev. gtas) and u will pop up on the street soon.

I have a xbox 360, no HDD, just bought the game at midnight last night, took it home, got in to the first lesson and then BAM...FREEZE, every time. Never at the same spot, but always in the first 10 minutes or so. I have tried saving the game before i goto the first mission, tried not even doing the first mission and just driving around but still same problem. Pretty much it will freeze no matter what. Called GameStop where I got it from and they said they had a regional rep. call them and they said they would have a patch out in "about a week"...this is just what they told me, not trying to start rumors. I'll be posting this on different sites so many people can see this, and know that the xbox 360's w/o the HDD are indeed having a freezing problem! I also have emailed and called Take2 and talked with them, they said they would be sending me an email shortly.

I think its turning into something we all accept, but whichever vehicle you're driving gets a few percentage points gain to spawn around you.
