Missing texture

or If your IV is running really slow and you're using Nvidia Optimus Graphic Card you should do this before you play GTA IV

What is Optimus Card ?
Optimus is the technology released by Nvidia. It feature is make program with low spec requirement like Ms. Word, Mozilla, Chrome, dll. use an Integrated Graphics (Intel) and use Nvidia for the program who has a high spec requirement (Game, Rendering Software). This is resulting the amount of electricity from Battery is spend economicly. Makes the battery lives more longer.

Optimus list :
All of Nvidia Card who has "M" letter on it's back
Ex. : GT520M

So, what's the problem about it ?
Sometimes, some program isn't set automaticly, in this case GTA IV isn't redirected to use Nvidia Graphics automaticly. So we must change the set manually.

So in this thread we are discussed about how to change the presets manually
