I've been asking around and I'm pretty sure this is just a glitch on my disc (xbox 360) but ....
If anyone has had this glitch (on IV) please let me know how you solved it!! cryani.gif

You can try reinstalling the game onto your console. That will usually fix any glitches that may have resulted from a bad download.

You wouldn't mind showing some pics, BTW? Does it only occur in offline or online mode? It would be strange if everyone's vehicles rode on the axles. LOL I'd like to see the police cars screeching down the road, having problems stopping their cars. ROFL

Parked my Cavalcaded-FXT sideways over the spot where the subways stop for passengers. Was getting pushed both ways, fell through the ground (was nothing but blackness). Appeared above ground with a slight thud. I'm pretty sure this has happened before. Is this common?

I don't know if this has been posted but...

I was doing the Heli Tours achievement, and when I went to the place, there will people on the helicopter already, so I just held Y to get in, and when I got in, the helicopter was still going up, and then the driver suddenly got into tour mode, and I skipped the tour, and when the screen came back from the black screen, the helicopter was still in place, going upwards, and Niko just got out like he was done with the tour, and I fell and died.


This happens all the time to me aswell.

Not sure if I can replicate this bug again, probably not, but when I started up GTA :IV (I think by now I had it installed to my HDD, I'm on a 360) I had the Xbox Guide open, and when it got to a certain loading screen (Lola I think) it froze and I had to restart. Then today while I was trying to get Libery City Minute I skipped a cutscene and the game froze, though I had been playing for a while and these have been the only two times my game froze out of my 72 hours of gameplay.

EDIT: When going through the tunnel from Alderny to Algonquin, or vise versa, at a high speed, the tunnel is invisble and takes a second to render. I have run into many instances where bushes or other 2D objects/textures are invisble and take a second to render. I hope RockStar fixes this in V.

When you blow something up in the highway preferably a speeding car, a cop chasing you or normal spawned car, when another car hits it blows up.....I thought it was a glitch but it's quite useful. I use it with sticky bombs and it might stop 2 cops to 8. I made a huge pileup crash like situation where the only thing that could get by was a helicopter. Then I blew up a bus and it destroyed 18 cars!!!!!!!!!!!! Until I died it problaby would've stopped more if it wasn't for one of them pushing me into the situation and then blowing up

I was in one of the train tunnels on a bike of some description, and I floored it on a straight. As I did this, the walls dissapeared and I was riding on a load of grey stuff. When I slowed down I was back on the tracks again.

You can try reinstalling the game onto your console. That will usually fix any glitches that may have resulted from a bad download.

On console, you play the game straight off the disc with no download/installation.

EDIT: Oh snap, cp1dell beat me to the tunnel thing. Ho-hum.

^^^^I've had that happen in the Holland Tunnel (can't remember the GTA name for it) all the time usually when I'm westbound coming from Alderney.

So I just started a new GTA4 game last night so I could play through The Possible Trinity. After Niko gets in Romans cab I decide to see how many people I can run over on the way to the apartment. I get out of the cab a few times to pick up dropped cash. Once we arrive at the apartment (Roman is not happy with me at all) the camera pulls back like it does for a cutscene and...nothing happens.

30 minutes later I go back to my TV and its still stuck staring at Niko and Roman sitting in the cab. I am forced to turn the PS3 off.

Today I put the disk in and the disk isn't registering at all, I'm just getting a spinning icon. Uncharted 2 loaded right up and plays fine so...

I may have trashed my GTA file...anyone else ever done this or heard of this?

Update: The screen has gone black and the the disk sounds like its "clunking" around in the drive. The drive also makes the clunking sound with no disk inserted. No progress past that though.

Update 2: This is looking more and more like a corrupted hard drive, the PS3 won't even load the basic startup screen.

Update 3: Cannot start. The correct hard disk was not found. I've never swapped hard drives and I've been trying to access the "file restoration" option (never had to before) but no dice.

I had a weird thing happen to me the other day.
I've finished the story on the game many times, so i went through it again and
for the final mission, i chose to go for revenge against Dimitri. I killed him, went to Roman's wedding, Kate gets killed etc. All normal.
About 2 or so hours after i finished the game, i was randomly driving around and i got a phonecall from 'Unknown Caller'. It was Kate, she wanted to 'hang out' i said yes and went to pick her up. We went on a normal date, i dropped her home and left, confused. There were no weird comments exchanged during the drive, just normal conversation. It was as if she didn't die.
Im not sure if this was a glitch or part of the storyline; i still did not have her phone number afterwards and i havn't heard from her since. im very curious.
anyone know?

One out of many glitches encountered in GTA 4 Multiplayer.
The Booth tunnel seems to have quite a lot of them!

Ive seen motercycles on there side on the street and the driver will be sideways floating, and there body position is like there sitting on the bike. Happens alot in TBOGT mp. Also on TBOGT Ive gotten an invisable parachute from people with laggy connections, and I can still do the parachute glitch. I can do it as fast as I want too because the parachute does not brake.

If you're in a cab and the cabbie blows a toll booth the cops chase the cab, so you press "X" or whatever button it is to make cabbie hurry for you and he does, the cabbie is outrunning the police now and you reach your destination just to find out that the cabbie isn't being chased, you are cry.gif

I was playing single player today (Xbox version) and doing some Most Wanted missions via police computer. Was driving through the underground tunnel in the police car, sirens on, speeding past everyone. And when I got to the end of the tunnel, a garbage truck randomly drops out of thin air and lands in front of me.

Think I found a big glitch. I finished an early mission for Vlad, the one where you have to chase a guy over some rooftops and then decide whether or not to kill him When it was over Niko made the call to Vlad to tell him what happened, but I accidentally pressed the circle button and cut off the call.

Now it seems like the main story has disappeared. Vlad is no longer on the map and the floating marker across the street from the safehouse has gone. I've played for maybe four hours and nothing story-related has happened. All I can do is call Roman for jobs or to take him out, or call Michelle for a date

It looks like I'm going to have to start a whole new game, unless someone can think of a solution. I'm playing on a 60gb PS3.

You can call Vlad through your phone and the storyline will resume.. biggrin.gif

can somebody help me??Escuela of the Streets mission,alwyas when i have followed the dealer to the warehouse,the yellow marker does not appear anywhr,and i cant proceed with the mission,can anyone help pls

There are stairs going up to a terrace near the building consisting the marker, than on the terrace there is a wooden plank going to the marked building's terrace. You need to enter the building through the roof window there and shoot the gangsters inside.

You guys ever get into Vlad's bar in a glitch too? I did and luckily I taped it for YouTube, but of everything I saw in GTA IV, this only happened once for me, just playing as normal and saw a ped in front of Niko walked up to the closed GRAPHIC of the door and he disappeared right through it. I obviously picked up on that, so I walked through it as well. Not the back outside door, BTW, the ACTUAL front door. Shot the interior view for my own YT channel, but I don't have a link if you haven't seen that already, Just saying, that was something very odd!

Here's an interesting RPG shootout we had after we glitched ourselves underwater,
Took a good while to get all the players down there, but it was definitely worth it!

► 16 players battles it out below the sea with RPGs as the weapon of choice.

I noticed if you can get a Maverick on this spot at Playboy's, it will save like a normal vehicle.

Tried it with the 'Buzzard' in BOGT, but it didn't work

It will save at any parking spot.

I have one at every safehouse except 1.

Really helps if you want to get somewhere in a hurry.

Just leave it when you get where you're going (if you have to).

Later, just get another smile.gif .

Funny bug that allows you launch cars to sky. Put your car near curb and hit them at very high speed with truck or something.
Always working.

Did anyone of you notice that HELICOPTER SNIPERS and the RUSSIAN THUG
won't be dead after they fall down?

Yesterday I shot many bullets into a police Maverick until it went on fire and fell down. The two noose guys with M4s had a long way to fall....but they didn't die!!!

Same in DUST OFF! The russian thug who grabs the helicopter and falls...follow him down with the heli, he won't die!!!
