You can not run the disc version without a disc legally. The Steam version does work without the disc because it doesn't come with the disc.

I know that I cant but it's only posible in Steam Version.... Rockstar should do this too in Disc Version...but we not change this ;

Rockstar isn't going to do this ever again because of Piracy. They tried this with Bully PC version and it was pirated more than purchased.

I guess

So the disc check will stop people downloading the game from torrents? My friend pirated it and he doesn't have any problems with DRM. I guess I have to suffer because I decided to give R* my money.

I am not suffer ;

I have the steam version of GTA IV, and I don't particularly like the new shadows. There are clipping issues near the base of geometry that cast shadows and performance is slower at the high setting. Going to medium is not an option. I was able to alleviate the problems with the previous shadow type, but steam has forced the game to patch to that new EFLC version. Is there any way to bring back the older shadows?

No. Your best bet is to turn shadows down to low or off and leave everything else where it is. Night shadows can still be on though.

The older shadows have this exact same problem. It was less noticeable because the shadows weren't sharp and crisp:

I actually don't understand why most people hadn't noticed that the shadows were like this since the beginning. There were many requests to have the shadows be sharp and crisp. Now that you have it, people complain that it drains resources and looks bad. We might never see an RDR port with all these complaints.

Now for the reason I'm here, does anyone have a link to every patch for IV and EFLC?

I know this is a bump, but since it is a Pinned topic, it shouldn't matter? Anywho, Just a heads up, but the Download link to the Patch on the first page is Dead-it will not work on Firefox OR IE 8. Any chance of fixing it Mods/Admins.? Also, where is the Download link for Patch 4, since it seems to be the most stable version for weaker systems?

Not happy with the patch. With shadows on high I average about 10fps less than previous patch with shadows on very high. The new shadow system only looks better in screenshots. Its worse when actually playing due to the short draw distance.
