Don't be a dick. Tell you what, for homework go and make GTA V, and yes I mean GTA 5, and let's see your shadows and resource usage.

I am sure I haven't bought GTA IV than... we pay 50euros for it... these problems are unacceptables.

50 Euros?! Why the hell is it so expensive? I lived in Portugal before moving to South Africa and games were like 30 to 40 Euros.

Amen! I agree with you totally. I am enjoying this game so much even though I played it on my Xbox 360. It's made for PC.

I just want to start the game lol.

I have an ATI/Saphire X1600 512 MB
SB live (which sucks I know, but still works decent with all the latest games)
Athlon XP 2500 (1.84 GHZ)
1.5 MB of ram
vista enterprise (now SP1 since I had to update because of the windows%P error I was getting originally)


I was all excited last night popped in the disc 1, took along time but I can understand that. Put in disc 2 and then during installation of directx it gave me a blue screen. Restarted, started install again, did the accounts(but it wouldn't let me log into social thing at first until I manually went to the web page and signed in). This time it made it through. But wait there's only an icon for the social crap and no regulat GTA IV icon to be found, not even under start-programs. I had to manually go the folder in windows explorer to find it and that was after a "successfull" install of both cds. Anyway I tried starting the game from there and from the social menu and I get a Dos window and then a classic vista "gta4 has stopped working" - technical details APPCRASH and a bunch of numbers---GREAT thanks microsoft!

I've been a computer tech for years and I've tried a variety of drivers for the ati card. No help. Not to mention the latest ATI Catalyst driver made my acer 22 w off centered at 1440*900. Honestly even with the controls on the monitor itself I couldn't recenter the stupid thing with that driver for some reason. Never seen that before. Anyway I hope this patch comes out soon
I just want to be able to start the damn thing. Forget about shadows lol. 49.99 Rockstar I don't pay often but I paid for yours so you keep making PC releases so get on it! I hate those stupid consoles. I like driving with the logitech rumblepad and then I switch to keyboard when I get out so I cap a few asses with the mouse and awsd keys aaaaaaaaaaaaah ya

I can use the standalone windows live client without problems, i can play with an offline account without problems, but whenever I try to log into an online account, the game just crashes. I posted about this on page 11 i think.

Shut the f*ck up. You bought 3, VC and SA, and they're good, they're running fine on your PC, ROCKSTAR MADE THEM.
GTA IV is a GREAT game. You KNOW you'd suck to play it maxed out. So stop BITCHING ABOUT ROCKSTAR. You're nothing but a TROLL.

Sorry everyone else, I got pissed off. Sorry again.

Seriously. Do you think this is the best you can come up with? Or is this realistic? Its like somebody made it with MS paint sad.gif
Flickering, bugging. Makes the gameplay a lot worse ... it annoys everybody. No matter if you play in 800x600 with a low-end card, or in 1080p resolution with a high end card. It looks the same.

Rockstar Toronto, I would like to know if there is any chance of Nvidia releasing drivers to help GTA IV run better on laptop computers I have an 8400M GT card and the last driver to be released was September. I passed minimum requirements but have difficulties playing at a decent speed. Here are my benchmark scores with my computer specs, frame-rates range between 11 and 17 shown here that is the maximum I've been able to achieve. I also have the problems of textures popping up. Any help would be appreciated.

I don't know about you, but whenever I'm walking under a subway line in real life, the shadows look alot like they do in that picture. True enough, they're a bit sharper in real life.

We haven't heard of this issue before. Sent your details off directly to Microsoft and am waiting for a response.

Please be patient as we will go through these issues. In order to have good replies some issues do require asking specific staff at Rockstar, ATI, Nvidia, or Microsoft followup questions.

We will work to come up with a more efficient system of replying to everyone since the page count on this post is already piling up quick and there are a lot of people we haven't replied to yet that we will on earlier pages.

So hang tight everyone, and please don't repeat questions unnecessarily since we have to go through them all. Thanks!

Haha. I will laugh at those people after the patch is released and it fixes most of the horrible bugs/errors, who took their games back to the store. They were so sure that there is no patch coming. What an ignorant attitude... I bet that when patch is out and game gets fixed with patches and Ati/Nvidia drivers, then they will run back to the store "omg Rockstar is the best, I love them!"  lol.gif

If I buy a car I expect it to work properly. I don't care if the fixes on the engine and steering will come out soon, I want to use it today. I paid for it. Games are also products, and as such I expect them to be tested properly before release.

I'm one of those people that returned the game. Had problems launching the game, then missing textures, then FPS drops a few minutes into the game. Can't enjoy it like that. I have a Core2 extreme X9000 2.8ghz, 8800 GTS, 4gb ram, running vista ultimate x64.

On another note, the "future proofing" thing was a bad move. Rockstar should know that people will always want to turn the sliders up, especially those with top of the line hardware. And do they actually know the percentage of gamers with quad core systems? Hell, they could've made the game for today's systems and release a "super GTA HD expansion pack" in a few years, they could even charge for it. Sigh, I miss the days when games were made for current hardware, not imaginary one.

I hope the patch fixes most of the bugs for you guys. I'll just play the game on my X360.

Listen, everyone is working hard here to resolve your problems, and you do nothing but moan around how bad is Rockstar. You have asked them a question, I've seen that - and they just said they look on EVERY problem. They've seen your problem. They will work to fix it. Got it?

I for one believe in R* and am sure they'll fix our problems.

Like others, I've got a problem with my FPS/the game 'stuttering' or 'hiccuping' during gameplay & cutscenes. Is very bad & pretty much unplayable at my native 1440x900 resolution/default settings the game gave me. With some tweaking and the pre-release version of ATI's 8.12 drivers, I've noticed a bit of improvement, though the stuttering still remains

Video Editor seems that when it craps out on clips with alot of triggers it seems to retain the problem in the clip on restart. Im currently making a 2 min video. One clip than any other caused this error:

QUOTE
Fatal Error SMA60
.. even tried editing with low textures 0 draw distance / shadows but it still happens intermittent. Always on the clip that caused it first of all, like when I revisit it craps out roughly the same time in that clip. It does it when i press escape from the clip back to the timeline, then drops back to desktop with error.

Re-booted a few times and lowered everything and went back in and it did it to me when viewing the whole movie right at that clip point again, wierd. So far it means I cant continue with a movie, tiz buggy with alot of markers it seems, im making a chase scene with alot of camera work.

Vista32 (specs are in the tweaks thread in my sig).


On another note, will R* after patching etc think about re submitting sub missions like GTA SA (Taxi driver to make money, Ambulance Driver etc) would be nice to see that back in some way / expansion pack).

Again check my sig for my video edit thread which has some bug reports, requests etc.
