First I hear 1.0.8.0 is the best version, then I hear 1.0.4.0 is actually the best in terms of performance, and I'm trying to work out which one is best.

 

I don't care about mods, all I care about is performance. I'm currently running v1.0.8.0, and I can say it's running better then when I was running v.1.0.70., but there's still a crap ton of stuttering, even with the -memrestrict command.

 

I know the game is poorly optimised blah blah blah I already know this, I just want to know which version is best for performance.

 

Thanks.

I'm not sure my favorite version for GTA IV PC?

1.0.4.0 or 1.0.7.0?

hmmmm..... *thinks*

Maybe i prefer 1.0.4.0 as the best version for me.

This is your answer; the 1.0.8.0 patch was never meant to be magic, PC version of GTA 4 is sh*t so you will still have some issues concerning the optimization.

Try to play with the settings too.

Why don't you try the 1.0.4.0 patch anyway?

This depends a lot. My PC ran better with 1.0.7.0 by about 2fps. It did lag like hell with 1.0.4.0 tho.

Ahhh because I don't want to accidentally download a virus from an untrusted website. I couldn't find the patch on R*'s website either.

Many people say 1.0.0.4/1.0.5.0 is the best version (the number is weird), in terms of performance. But thats bullshot, just turn down shadows and you get same performance (and graphics)

And performance between 1.0.8.0 and 1.0.7.0 should be same.

Speaking of the different versions, does it seem like Niko weighs a lot less in patch 1.0.4.0? Compared to 1.0.7.0 when you crash on a motorcycle or bail out of a car, you seem to fly a further distance on patch 4.

1.0.8.0 should be the best version.

I believe some people just have fuc*ed up IV installation or OS, that is why they have badder performance on newest patch.

Yeah, using patch 7, delete taskparams.txt inside pc\data\game.rpf and you'll get the same issue. Some euphoria stuff seems to be broken on patch 4. game.rpf is the same in both patches though.

Is it possible to fix this by using the taskparams.txt from patch 7 in patch 4? Or when you say the game.rpf is the same, does that include whatever is in taskaparams.txt too?

This, so I presume some EXE code is broken in patch 4 - certain stuff isn't being loaded or whatever.

I remember that you can't beat a ped with a firearm when you're close enough to him using patch 4, too.

What about 1.0.3.0? I've heard the differences between that and Patch 4 are minimal, so mods and ENB works fine on it. Is that true? Is this issue present in Patch 3?

why not use the patch 5 tho? That is the supposedly fastest version with the most compatible enb.

Is it? I've always heard Patch 4 had the best performance. I know Patch 6 is when ENB broke and introduced the new shadow method that decreased performance. But I've never heard much about Patch 5's ENB and mod compatibility, and performance.

You may be right, i get always confused by some patch which was called 1.0.0.4 or 1.0.0.5 (aka differently than every other, and had lower number than it should be)

But the shadow performance is myth, if you play on medium, u get the old shadows and same performance. Only problem might be the enb.

Yeah well High shadows on Patch 7 = Very High shadows on Patch 4. Very High on Patch 7 is an extended option that didn't exist on Patch 4.

I'm very curious about the ENB compatibility though with Patch 3. Aside from the bugs present in Patch 4 that supposedly aren't in Patch 3 - how is the performance?

I tried unpatched version up to patch 3 and all run much worse than patch 4/7/8. Patch 3 was somewhat playable but 4 was better.

1040 is best. It is best beciause this patch has perfect balance for performance and graphics. But for you I imagine 30 fps is a catastrophy so why should I even give a f*ck?
