There has been a dark fashion that has been sweeping the game world since the invention of dual and quad cores. That is, to make a game that is not yet complete and release it anyway. THEN expect the users to buy the game and wait for the release of a patch. Warhammer, Half Life, Left for Dead just to name a few. I am appalled at Rockstar Con Artists INC - [Formally Rockstar Games], this is simply not acceptable. I have been following the GTA series since I first remember saving up to buy the very first Grand Theft Auto. With each release they [Rockstar] made more and more money. I don't know slept with who, but Microsoft wanted a piece of the this action.

Wait a second R*, I seem to recall that just about every operating system Microsoft has released has been plauged with bugs. Don't worry says R* we make money and you don't, get it? Now they corrupt a reasonably seemless running game series [GTA to GTA III San Andreas] with their greedy silicon plated hands. They polluted R* with their gold plated thoughts with 'How are we going to squeeze more money out of this game' then the IRS ever could.

The thing that annoys me the most, amongst other things, is they claim that only a small few are having problems and that is computers that are 'not graphically capable' of running it. How dare you!, how dare you say something so vulgar. When you place 'System Requirements' of Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8ghz, 1.5G Ram [Vista], 16GB HDD and 256 Nvidia 7900. Are you telling me that this is acceptable gaming. This is illegal and it is called false advertising.

Now don't get me wrong, I run a Quad Core 2.83GHZ, 4G DDR3 RAM, GTX280, Vista Ultimate and with MORE then enough HDD space. GTA IV still runs like a pig and crashes more then an epileptic acoholic driving with a cracked front windshield while trying to complete a Chinese crossword he found in the back seat. So no, it isn't just the 'graphically incapable computers' R* and it sure isn't 1%. Now you release a lackluster patch, which like many gamers, made it worse [First crash is now as soon as I walk out the door]. Forshame R*. I hope you read this, I hope you take this all into account and wake up to yourself.

Regards,

Colonel Clink

P.S. Microsoft isn't your Mum, so tell them where they can stick their money and help out the people who made you what you are!!!

The trend you speak of is true, with the advent of multiple cores games developers think it is acceptable to release a poorly coded game hpoing that the extra proccesing power will make up the difference.

HI , i have a question.

"The patch promised by Rockstar Games last Saturday is now available. Start your game and connect to LIVE to trigger the download. The patch is 32.6MB, takes a few minutes to install,..."

HOW TO HELL can i get the Patch when the Game crashes after legal notice with the Megssage "GTA VI dont work any more" [ <<free translation from german wink.gif ]

I got a big improvement in fps but the camera is f*ckED now. It continuously wants to look directly down on the character, making game play worse than putting up with jerky framerates if not impossible.

How do you manually adjust the camera angle PLEASE???

I got the patch earlier via GFWL and it updated smoothly. I bought the game through Steam if that makes a difference.

It doesn't seem to have caused any problems for me that I noticed in playing for five minutes - controls and sound seemed normal.

It hasn't increased my FPS at all, which is as I expected. In fact I ran the benchmark twice and got 42fps and 43fps, whereas previously at the same settings I got 45fps. So possibly it has actually decreased performance, but we know the benchmark isn't terribly reliable or indicative of actual game performance so I'm not bothered by that per se.

The game still isn't saving my settings when I quit which is rather irritating. Perhaps this seemingly simple to fix issue can be resolved in a future patch, if indeed there will be any more patches. IIRC the older GTA games only got one patch each.

Overall then, just what I expected, no discernible difference, for better or worse. I'll have to see if any differences become apparent the next time I play for an extended time.
