I hope it only blocks people with modified weapon & handling files... skins should be allowed no matter what.

Skins and other visual modifications don't harm anyone...

Sorry, the links should be live in an hour or so. Your game should update through Games for Windows LIVE.

I hope this doesn't affect visual tweaks...because if I can't play without my sexy blur in Multiplayer then you guys have just ruined my GTA experience.

I downloaded the patch from the other topic, and now the game is telling me to reinstall. Is this normal?

Hi, Do Steam users download the patch or do we have to wait for Steam to update it? Last time i downloaded the patch it broke my Steam version by hanging on the DOS prompt. The Steam update fixed it so i'm not sure if i'm to wait or get it now?

Hey Rockstar Toronto Team, when is 1.0.4.0 being released?

Please add to your "to-do" list:
- Possibility to use turn indicators.

Thanks icon14.gif




Watinho, its like roulette, you have a 48% chance that it works with deactivating your mods, 48% chance that you have to reinstall your game and 2% chance that it works well. biggrin.gif

Make sure you are using the original "LaunchGTAIV.exe" that installed with your game.
