Call for a public apology from Rockstar Games

Recommended Posts

Q_Q

 

Thats all I have to say about this topic QQ. Rockstar already apologized and they already said they would gradually fix numerous issues. The game hasent been out for a month! Look at the numerous games that to date are still getting patches. Games that have been out nearing 2-3 years. Company of Heroes, a excellent game with numerous optimization issues, multiplayer lag, bugs, tweeks etc. Yet relic still releases patches for it and thousands of people loved the game and still play it. Dont say that other games dont have problems when they get released, its because they always delayed there games and if the game was sucessful they always released patches. Its people that cry about how it got delayed and whining on fourms about how badly they wanted this game and its not out yet, and saying "its not fair the console got it first! wa wa wa" Thats when it gets rushed and turns into barf8bd.gif . Then you get your poorly tested games and poorly optimization crap game. So dont blame it on R* Toronto they've only been working on it since just before the release of the Console Versions. Only 50 guys working on it. Thats alot of work, especially the extras that they gave us: better graphics and new/better features, Multiplayer supporting 32 players! So please dont give us your BS. If you dont like the pc version. Buy your self a Xbox 360 or a PS3 and buy the game. Otherwise shutup WE DONT CARE!

For those people that cant even run the game yet cause of errors I feel sorry for ya, just hang on! Im sure there are solutions! There just hiding.

 

My version is just barly working. But I'm happy, I love GTA IV and enjoying the game. I will definatly get the next GTA when it comes. Ill support R* until the end! They havent let me down before and still havent! Good work R* heres a cookie. cookie.gif

Having myself singlehandedly developed sophisticated software in a matter of days, I say this with confidence.

Give me 50 reasonably skilled programmers, 2 or 3 talented artists, and 8 months (since the release of the console versions)

WITH ALL THAT, I COULD MAKE YOU A BIGGER BETTER MORE OPTIMIZED NOT BROKEN GTA 10 FROM SCRATCH, STARTING AT ZERO. This of course takes into account that me and those 50 programmers and a few artists would be doing nothing but working on the game full time, 40+ hours per week. Seriously. I'll admit, GTA IV is a masterpiece on the consoles. The PC port team had half a year, a mostly finished product. All they had to do was port it. I know how porting works. All you have to do fundamentally is swap the API from the xbox360 to directx. Considering that we're dealing with a PC, directx actually has more features and is more optimized. Meaning that those hoops you have to jump through for the consoles to work, they're gone. You can write simpler code, and it would work better and faster than the more convoluted original code.

It seems that those 50 people were doing nothing but driving their sports cars all those months, because the PC port is easily the most poorly coded PC game of the last generation. The only game that is more poorly coded is Big Rig Racing, and even that game doesn't crash as often.

GTA is great game but last version is very bad for most of PC gamers. We play all version and old versions not have that many bugs. We all wish good patch.

Grand Theft Auto IV PC: How To Get A Refund

 

 

Source: http://ve3d.ign.com/articles/news/43399/Gr...To-Get-A-Refund

 

 

Quote from the article: "As we first revealed, the scale of the problems experienced by gamers who purchased Grand Theft Auto IV PC, is so unprecedented that Steam is refunding their customers on a case-by-case basis."

 

 

So that's good news!! If you downloaded the game through Steam, there's a good chance you can still get your money back.

 

 

Also, this article about the widespread and game-breaking technical problems for the PC port can be found at:

 

 

http://pc.ign.com/articles/936/936304p1.html

 

 

Unbelievable. They still cannot admit how badly they f*cked up.

Rockstar has disgraced their own name. There is no possible excuse for this mess.

 

 

Either:

 

 

--They did not Beta-test whatsoever.

--Their QA team is completely incompetent

--(most likely) Rockstar was very, very well aware of the massive technical problems for this rushed port and decided to release anyway, to cash in on the Christmas rush ASAP.

 

 

This is utterly disgraceful, and I continue to be very vocal about getting a refund for this broken product.

Old articles.

 

THIS, however is new. http://au.pc.ign.com/articles/937/937272p1.html

 

"US, December 10, 2008 - ATI has released its 8.12 version graphics drivers. Our sister site, Voodoo Extreme, reports that that the update attempts to fix issues related to Grand Theft Auto IV. The PC version of Rockstar's free-roaming action game has received criticism for being poorly optimized. "

 

AGAIN, IGN states "criticism for being poorly optimized"

Woah, holy crap.. ATI is admitting to lazy drivers ???

 

 

I mean look at all the games they are patching at once.

looks like they haven't been focussing on a certain issue, for a while now.

Seems to me that Rock Star is the only good guys here.

 

The people who are fuqing up are Nvidia, ATI, SecureROM and Microsoft.

 

So far Nvidia, an ATI have made good with the driver release. Now it is microsofts turn!

 

SecureRom just sucks in general, i dont think there is a way to ever fix their reputation.

It was CockStar's responsibility to release a game that was compatible with modern drivers. They completely and utterly failed to do that.

 

 

And then they have the nerve to shift the blame on Nvidia and ATI, and make them fix CockStar's mess?

 

 

Why should Nvidia have to fix CockStar's atrocious port?

 

 

In any case, if CockStar is so quick to point to OUR faulty drivers, then they admit they were aware of massive problems upon release, yet went forward anyway?

I will take this moment to officially apologize to Janne. Public apology if you like. She is a girl that I met in Bergen 1 week ago in a bar.

 

I did mean to call you back, I did not mean to hump you silly and leave you.

The reason I did was that I was in a hurry. I had to catch a bus that left early.

I had no intentions to treat you like this. But I did, and I am sorry.

I agree 100%, it's everybody else's fault that GTA:IV runs like crap and we're lucky to have the upstanding folks at R* trying to clean up the mess left by: Nvidia, ATI, Microsoft, SecureROM, PETA, Westboro Baptist Church, Global Warming, the United Nations, Sub Prime credit crisis etc, all of whom are to blame for the poor optimization and bugs in GTA:IV.

Oh for gods sake.

They are working on a patch. If you want a refund go and get one.

You will only buy it again when the problems are ironed out.

 

Patience anyone?!
