If the game supports OpenGL like the others then yes, older computers will run the game just fine...
OpenGL is around 30% faster and looks alot better than DX... Microsoft wanted to buy OpenGL but the manufactures said NO...Thank GOD, cause Microhard would just ruin it like windows...

All the Windows look the same, but are totally bloated the latest Windows, XP+Vista...
What happened to around 200Meg large Windows that got the job done ???

Bully was a sh*t sorry excuse for a port and whilst it wasn't done by Rockstar North it has raised concerns for me personally about Rockstars ability to do anything outside of being coddled and babied by MS and Sony.

While I sort of felt the same after playing a bit of bully on the pc.. so far the pc gta's have been better than the console versions. that still give me some hope

also it seemed the pc bully was kept really quiet imo maybe it was just a half arsed atempt to get a few quid off an old game.

It could be a shipping delay. When i pre ordered rainbow six: vegas 2 for the PC i had to wait an extra 2 weeks while people that just went to the store could pick it up right there. At least that's what im hoping...

I wouldn't have thought so. If theres a delay it probably hasn't seeped through over here yet.

unless theres some sort of new sex thing in the game of course.

On IGN this page says "December 2, 2008 Grand Theft Auto IV Rockstar Games Action
Adventure" but then when you go to this page it says November 18th.

I'm confused and I'm going to be saddened sad.gif .

Well seems this true, GameSpot and Wikipedia show 2nd Dec when the Europe still 21st Nov. Well I don't know when I'll get this coz I preordered this from Asia and there's no change.

Or you could Rip out your RAM until your down to 2GB... Both methods do the same thing.

My point is, who the hell wants to downgrade there PC to play Bully...

Also for those getting the "No DirectX 9.0c Sound Card" Error when you get to the Main Menu, you need to disable every audio device other than your sound card. (Modem Half-Duplex/Full Duplex, Bluetooth Audio, Bluetooth A2DP, etc)

Seems the Audio Coder doesn't know how to lookup the Default Device ID.... Seriously bad considering it took me 5 seconds to find sample code on MSDN. (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa394463(VS.85).aspx)

I wan't to be able to use A2DP and my Voicemodem (Caller ID, Calls Through PC and Voicemail via Advanced Call Centre) again... sad.gif

No. Just wait for the patch from them, as R*Watch said.

Oh, how true this is. I remember that there was a lot of commotion because a butt was shown before 10 pm on some police drama. Jeez.

I'm wondering if it's the FCC that's on R*'s ass or if it's technical difficulties.

What are you guys talking about with this amazon sucks stuff? They dont make the game so they cant go making things up and announce random release dates. Its just a online buying place. If they say its been delayed then R* made a announcement to them. Otherwise they are setting themselves up for a lawsuit for frauding the public. And theres no reason or advantage for them in doing so.
You guys are making it sound like Amazon just makes up release dates because theyre bored. I dont think so.

I just dont understand why these idiotic game companies cant come up with a valid release date. They do it all backwards. If they think a game will be released in Nov08 then they should say itll be released March09. This gives them plenty of time, and if it ships earlier then everyones happy. Its not like R* is poor and needs to hit a xmas rush, now is it? People are going to buy it no matter when its released, so they need to quit dickin' us around!

Same with SR2 which has been delayed twice now.

So why does everyone think Amazon is making it up?

There are third party programmers that have already made it for XP

They haven't. It just changes your version number.

Every 4 years or so there is an extra day in February. eg. people born on that day only meet their birthday every 4 years.
EDIT: link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leap_year . And I believe he spelled it right.

And in all honesty, don't jump and immediatly say he can't spell, since it is YOU who is ignorant and has no clue on what a leap year is. If in doubt, at least Google it, took me 3 seconds to get that Wikipedia link with more information than anyone would read.

K, but I still don't understand his post. What does February have with November?
