Can't chance settings
Posted 23 August 2011 - 10:38 PM
But I just bought a new computer.
ATI 6990 hd 4 gigs
16 gigs ram
i7 2600 (overclocked) 4.1
Now i'm pretty sure i can run this. I can run crysis maxed and get no less than 60 fps
I spent hours researching and these are the steps i've done so far.
I created a command line (didn't work) Thought I did it wrong so i even downloaded a premade one. No luck
I updated my drivers and downloaded the latest GTA 4 patch.... nothing...
I figured wth, maybe a mod that deals with graphics might fix this issue... nope
And the issue basically is
I can run the game in like nintendo 64 mode... basically smallest rez with nothing on.
I get a warning saying (you exeed the limits or w/e at the bottom)
I cant move any of the bars to adjust the settings.
I also tried doing that "insert line here" in the short cut.
Also downloaded radeon pro in hopes to force this game to do what my heart desires... just played how it always did.
am i doomed to play this game on a crappy nvidia 460?

Ironic thing is that a GTX 460 will probably perform the same or better than that 6990 with this game.

ALSO for those of you with the same card who are getting low fps. If you bought the game just update it then install the newest drivers. I see on youtube everyone is upset that their newest card still has issues. Also once you do so and it runs smooth go to your card settings and override ALL the settings to the MAX. You will then see this game at all its glory after installing all the mods. The only bad side is the characters dont fit into all the new changes. While everything looks realistic the people look cartoonish.

maybe ati cards run gta IV fine now, but i had a hd 4850 and got tired of the performance issues and swapped it for an 8800gt i had laying around.
bit-tech/custom pc magazine is saying that a 6970 is the fastest card in the world right now though
every gta game that has come out has that "plays better with nvidia" right there on all of their boxes

what? From that review:
|Itís therefore not that surprising that ATI is claiming that the HD 6970 2GBís main competitor is the GeForce GTX 570 1.3GB, not the imperious GeForce GTX 580 1.5GB.|
Despite this though, we canít help but feel a little let down by the HD 6970; frankly we were expecting more from ATIís fastest ever GPU
The GTX 580 has the fastest GPU. The Asus MARS II is the fastest gaming graphics card ever (atleast until Q1 2012).

That card is unf*ckingbelievable, just look at the max power consumption - more than 700 Watt
