I think I'm gonna hold out and wait til the final and complete patch is released. For now, I'm gonna blaze and glory it on SA MP.

same here; I don't see any point in risking losing performance or losing game content like we did with Patch 1.0.2.0 (hotdog venders, etc)...
I can still play single-player without any problems; I'll just stick to what I have: Patch 1.0.3.0

Not sure about the other things, but I'm pretty certain these two options were added by the third patch.

They're all from patch 3. Get off the pot, alin_zt.

Do you run a modded version of the game? Did you install everything correctly?

Check out the editing discussion about IV/RAGE and use some of the 'tools' (filechecker and such). Normally you can get it running.

I got it running though I just had a random crash that occured (GTAIV.EXE has stopped working or something). Gonna try it a couple of times, maybe it goes away.

Cant believe it!!! this time I had 2 hours of cheat free play till the same old wankers turned up.....but ya know what the worst thing is R*,them 2 hours were flippin excellent fun you have created one of the best online games out there,and you let these dumb cheating f*cks ruin it for ya.

C'mon do something ffs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! devil.gif devil.gif devil.gif

Absolutely, multiplayer cheating has got to go, rockstar made an awesome game only to be let down by a spoilt MP protection so I'm still hoping rockstar and gfwl are working on something, I hate the report cheater function in gfwl.
I remember when MP was a blast with no one cheating, instead the MP games filled up with sad brain dead idiots just showing up to p*** people off.

About the 1.0.4.0 update, single player improved in 1.0.3.0 and has got even smoother fps now, got my fingers crossed for the next patch for it to have a well developed anti cheat for MP, it is a vital part for its longevity.

I didnt really lose any FPS but the game now runs like sh*t, cant move the view without the game stuttering. Was running great before, no problems at all.

Hey! I did a little experiment:) I think that everyone installs the latest patch after they have installed the GTA IV on their pc but is it enough?

Now this is what I got - patch 1.0.1.0(I don't have it so I excluded this one), patch 1.0.2.0: Weight - 32.5 MB(including the RGSC update), patch 1.0.3.0: weight - 54.7 MB(including the RGSC update), now the patch 1.0.4.0: weight - 54.7 MB(does it include RGSC update? I don't know).

When you install them all one by one, not every file writes over the old ones and guess what, the weight of all of them put together (without RGSC updates) is 104 MB. So the question is do we have to install all the patches to have better performance?

Erm, no. When a file is overwritten so is the space that it takes. You don't add the file sizes. And I think R* Toronto made it very clear in their first post that you don't have to install the previous patches if you're doing a reinstall.
QUOTE (Rockstar Toronto)
Like all previous updates, this contains all the fixes from past title updates, so there is no need to re-install previous patches if you have to re-install the game for any reason.

Does this update fix z-fighting (flickering textures)?
I'm not so hopeful but just wanted to ask, cause for me, it is the most annoying problem for me among all other problems of gta iv pc.

Sadly, from what i have read here, i guess this patch adds new bugs to the game rather than fixing the existing bugs.
Now, it has been more than 6 months since the game's release, and most people have finished and uninstalled the game months before, but we can't even get a decent patch to fix this crappy port yet.

PC users don't deserve this. mad.gif

The support pages will be up in a couple hours. This is an update more than a patch but we did optimize a few things so the game runs better.

Hey R* Toronto. Are you gonna add for the next patch:

-Gym Mod (where you can do muscles and all that like San Andreas);
-Barber Shop;
-Tatoos Shop;
-Tuning for cars.

Just wanah know, that's all.

But it was good if you made this, every people (even me) will say "GTA IV is better than GTA San Andreas".

Those were the most pointless features of San Andreas. Please, don't.

No this is was the best mods I ever seen and every people like it.

I think it would be cool for Grand Theft Auto IV.

I think it wont happen, patches upgrades system of game or something like that, not gameplay, maybe in DLC there will be such things.

Patches fix bugs and upgrade code in the game's executable and files. They don't add such features.

I can no longer click "Players" in the custom match menu to check which server has the most players on it. Clicking it just does nothing. Oh and my player model still has no shadow whilst in vehicles.

Unfortunetley this latest patch gave me a performance decrease and some weird stuttering.
Naturally I thought it was because of the mods so I uninstalled and did a clean install again without any change to performance (ofc after patcihng up).

Dumbass, do you even know what that means? It means it can be the last (Gold master build) or the ultimate patch that fixes the most major bugs.
