I'll try to make this simple as possible
I legitimately bought GTA4 from Steam, and EFLC from Amazon. The Amazon one came with a included downloader.
When I start up GTA4, I can get into the menus just fine, and I click Start
-Character Images Pop up, about 3 of them
-LOADING- GAME COMPLETE
- GTA crashes and shows the standard "This application has stopped working" or whatever
Ballad of Gay Tony works fine (for some reason, is prone to some crashes)
Now with TLAD it is a whole different story
-Able to get into menus
-Character images, about 3
-Crash, "This application has stopped worling"
I have uninstalled and reinstalled each one, removed all mods, tried -safemode and -novblank, Run in XP Mode/whatever, to no avial.
