This topic is based on another topic that I created for GTA San Andreas:
Ultimate Starter Game for GTA San Andreas with Video Guide for doing 4-Star missions


This is the PC version of GTA IV.
The official Rockstar patch was installed, otherwise no mods or other upgrades.
NO CHEATS
This is a completely legitimate game .

download the saved-game here

This version is currently 11.95% complete up the mission “The Cousins Bellic”

The mission The Cousins Bellic must be completed before saving for the first time, therefore it’s the only story mission that’s been completed, no others.

Also, Niko has never Died or been Busted.

Anything that can be done prior to ALL of the story missions (after The Cousins Bellic) has been completed, and I mean everything (excluding PC Achievements).
This was done just to see how many things could be completed immediately after the game began, and before the mission “It’s Your Call”

This saved-game starts on:
Monday at 06:00
which is the same day and time immediately after Niko completes the mission The Cousins Bellic.. sometimes it’s a Thursday; Rockstar couldn’t seem to make up their mind, so I chose Monday.

The game is saved at the first Safe House.

I tried to keep Saves visits to a minimum; there are 30 total.

Niko has the following:
1) $1,828 (The money was gained from the criminals in the Most Wanted missions and by killing several pedestrians.)
2) Full Body Armor
3) RPG, and all of the best weapons.
The ammo totals are maxed out.
4) All available clothing has been purchased or acquired (The clothing from locked areas cannot be purchased yet)
5) The special outfit from the Island of Happiness has been collected; the one that reads “Happiness is… Land”

The following side-missions / mini-games have been completed:
1) All 30 of the Most Wanted missions completed
2) Beat the high-score on CUB3D
3) Beat the computer at a game of Pool
4) Beat the computer at a game of Darts
(It’s not possible to play the computer at a game of bowling, otherwise I would have done that too)

In addition to all of that:
1) 200 Flying Rats – Pigeons Exterminated. (The Annihilator helicopter now spawns in Triangle in Algonquin)
2) 50 Stunt Jumps found
3) 50 Stunt Jumps completed

There are no failed missions.

All Safe Houses have fast and/or rare vehicles stored in front of them:
Broker Safe House: Maverick helicopter and an FIB Buffalo
Bohan Safe House: Annihilator helicopter and Sultan RS
Algonquin Safe House (East): Maverick helicopter and a Banshee
Algonquin Safe House (Northwest): Maverick Helicopter and a Turismo
Alderney Safe House: Maverick helicopter and a Turismo

All available Map Icons are shown on the map. This may not seem like much, but I did have to enter each of these locations in order for the icon to appear (except for the carwashes). (Even though the icons are visible, that doesn’t mean that all of those places are open for business yet)

Niko has the following weapons: and ammo totals.
1. Fist
2. Knife
3. Combat Pistol – 1491-9
4. Combat Shotgun - 70-10
5. SMG – 1170-30
6. Carbine Rifle - 570-30
7. Combat Sniper 40-10
8. RPG 8
9. Grenade – 25

Here are other various Stats:
PC Achievements completed:
Off the Boat
Manhunt
Wheelie Rider
Dare Devil
Walk Free
One Man Army
Endangered Species
One Hundred And Eighty
Gobble Gobble
King of CUB3D
Under The Radar

There are still four more PC Achievements that can be completed BEFORE passing any more story missions (excluding multiplayer PC Achievements):
Finish Him
Rolled Over
Chain Reaction
Half Million

How to load the saved game on your PC:
sjaak327 stated that the XLive Wrapper for GTA IV 1.0.0.1 will allow you to load different saved-games from other players.
I don’t know if it works or not, but it’s the only way that I’ve found that allows you to play my saved-game.

Here’s the download link… it was created by Rick.

There’s also -zeroz-’s GUIDE: Loading savegame, when XLive account gone topic.

Thanks... I'll be updating this to include variations as well, but I do believe that I got everything in this save that can be completed right after The Cousins Bellic.

Nice one, stupid question, how did you access the other islands, as they should only be accesible by completing missions (Three leaf clover for all islands unlocked, snow storm to unlock Algonquin). ?

True, the islands are locked, but it’s very easy to get past most of the roadblocks… for example, the pedestrian walkways on a couple of the bridges are completely un-manned; you can drive vehicles on both of the bridges between Algonquin and Broker and remain mostly unseen, as long as you use the pedestrian section.

I’ve also developed strategies for dealing with a 6-Star Wanted level… one of the best ways is to acquire a Securicar or an Enforcer, they last a lot longer than other vehicles when being shot at.

There are other things too… I’m in the process of making a guide on how to survive with a 6-Star Wanted and do missions and collectables while there; it'll be a separate topic.

Congrats to you for doing this, but really, I bought this game to be able to do all those things for myself and Im sure many others did as well.

Once Ive completed the game, currently at 68% Ill certainly use it to start another with all those things ready.

For XP

C:\Documents and Settings\...\Local Settings\Application Data\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\savegames

The files are named:
SGTA4xx

Just replace the xx with the slot you want your game to go into:
xx=00 thru 11

Hi zmoonchild.
The link to the starter savefile is error.
Do I have to sign up with RapidShare to download your starter save file?
Thanks for your help.
