i was checking the files inside C:\Users\***\AppData\Local\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\Settings and i found a file called limits.dat
i tryed to open it but its encrypted or something
may i ask what does this file do?
because i have the theory that it establishes the limits of the game capacity acording to the hardware but im not sure
if it does it could be handy if someone with a very powerful computer uploads that file
it could fix things like the taxi bug for example

If im correct it hold the limits of the game engine. For example, dont load more then 100 cars, 200 peds etc. I thought there was a topic some time back where ppl where discussing the limits of the engine.

Guys please, anyone?

I really want to expand engine power, and i guess it's the file that holds it, and get overwritten each time you start the game (sometimes even in the process), as effect of this i got sometimes peds in car appearing at distance of 5 meters (as a hardcoded rule) and it can only be re-created by running benchmark and rebooting the game, or delete this file and launch game.


This file holds power, i mean, if only i knew any of those values meanings, i could set it manually forever, and restrict re-writing of this file, which create non-sense mess.
