Nice to see R* here at the forums. Hope thy will sty in contact with the community. And don't stop support after a month or two. Im also a fan of the patch only for active, GTAIV accounts on Rockstars Social Club.

And now with the Rockstars Social Club there is a new way to get info out to the gamers, so use it and announce events and sh*t.

well it wouldn't be fair for only active people to get the patch as people without internet at home couldn't use the service, so they couldn't download the patch elsewhere and would be stuck with a buggy game, but people who have validated and have accounts should be able to download the patches if thats what you meant. smile.gif

L:OL, how you gonna get a patch without inetrnet to begin with????? This i 2008, having to have an internet connection is no big deal, the vast majority opf people gaming on Pc has internet. when HL2 came out people wined about neededing internet, 4 million plus sold later........ Get with the times, lol.

Someone needs to make a rockstar parody of the "Leave britney alone" video.

LEAVE ROCKSTAR ALONE!

The same way people are activating the game without the internet, by using another computer that DOES have internet access.

Yes internet is widely available, but some people dont put intenet on the main gaming computer, or dont have internet available, yes this is actually happening, OMG PEOPLE WITH NO INTERNET, IMPOSSIBLE... no its actually quite a lot of people and saying they shouldn't be allowed to patch the game would be downright disrespectful and unfair.

I have internet in this area, upto 24mbit, but just a 20 minute drive north and people DON'T have access to the internet due to their not being enough people there for ISP's to feasibly install large internet networks.

Hopefully the R* people are paying attention to the spec/benchmark threads in between all the pirate/illegal ones........(mods, please make a sticky soon!)

Hopefully in looking at many of the various specs from all the users posting, someone can ID a commonality that can diagnose a problem or the cause of such. If not that, they would still be useful in designing a fix perhaps..... wink.gif

No..

But don't they need some kind of staff rank in order to view and post in the moderator section?

Awesome, they'll report the bugs for sure. They wouldn't just join here for fun, and I'm pretty sure about that...

I'm pretty sure a rockstar employee looking in on the forums would be pretty much giving an all access pass to the site in order to properly view and check for potential problems, eh?

If you ran the site would you tell the rockstar employee to stick around for 12 months and you will then give them proper access?

Yeah, but they don't have access to the moderator section. The two posts on their account were made by us when we were testing it (we setup the account for them, they didn't do it themselves).

Hey, Toronto.
The game doesn't run on AMD Turion 64x 2.0GHzx2 nVidia GeForce 8400M and 2gb of RAM.
Is my PC really that f*cking low?

Exactly. I believe if R* North had ported the game it might just be a proper port. Did you see R* Toronto's website?

I'd say yes. Weren't mobile cards always going to be a problem? I don't think you should be trying it out on your laptop.

They don't have to visit these forums to get info submitted to it. They talk to the staff here, go back to the exclusive testing days and look for yourself. They're like the teachers, and the staff are like those students who bring apples and help correct the other students in the school analogy. No, that's not chocolate pudding on there noses.

I hope they do! It would be in there interests to visit all GTA sites to get some sort of feedback!

I really hope they do as I cannot get GTAIV to work on my pc!

Hi,

I have a few question for Rockstar.

1. When do you expect a patch to come out ?
2. What do you expect this patch to fix ?
3. How will we get the patch for non-steam users, will it be via GFWL (Games for Windows Live), Rockstar Social club or other, if other how ?
