Let's cheer for R*, in their fight against pirates, they lost their loyal paying customers as well. I'm back to FSX when it comes to PC gaming, this patch just made the memory leak appear 2 minutes later then it would normally do, woohoo R* great fix.

 

This is the last time I buy sh^t from you guys. You had your chance to correct your major f*ck up, and you failed to do so, making me play at 800*600, those resolutions are from the last century!!

 

And the German market just spit out your release from the shops, hehehe good for you, serves you well. I'm pretty much done with this sh*t.

 

I spend my whole PC gaming life with Rockstar games, didn't have to doubt the fact this one would be good, and now I get this sh*t.

 

I'll be looking forward to Saints Row 2. Congrats Rockstar, you just lost another fan!

Ok just installed patch by starting the game (LIVE downloaded and installed then restarted the game) and they have changed Playboy X's apartment. There is no terrace anymore, just a blue painting on the wall where the door to the terrace was and the laptop is back again.

 

Is it just my game being weird or has this happened to everyone else?

 

When I first got the apartment after killin Playboy X I noticed it was different from the xbox 360 version I had played previously in the fact that the kicthen had an island with no laptop in the PC version.

 

Can anyone confirm this change?

I just downloaded but so far I didn't really notice something different. All is the same... which is perfect for me biggrin.gif.

 

The game runs just fine, no problems at all. Too bad I can't push the graphics too much, the FPS drop to 25 :\. But I'm glad I can play with medium/high settings, and the game is just amazing. I love the car handling, the Euphoria engine... everything. ^_^

 

Too bad the multplayer is not working good for me. Everytime I join a match, the game takes me out immediately. sad.gif

 

I want to race...

Are you downloading via Games for Windows LIVE or you download a patch via internet browser?

Although i had no visual problems or crashes running GTA on Vista, it was really slow & the shadows suckedm, The best thing that worked for me was trying this game on XP, it runs it a lot better. In case anyone else thinks NFS undercover is bad on fps too, that also worked way better on XP with no crashing & has a decent frame rate.

 

I got 4gb memory, AMDx2 3.4ghz processor & GeForce GTX 280oc

I seem to have worse textures after the patch than before. The FPS rate is up a lot, and the RAM usage stays below half a gig, I guess that's good. Now what about the darn textures. Also how about some support for a non microsoft game pad? I hate the 360 controller. I'll play around with the settings and see if I can hook it up right. I had no texture problems before!!! icon13.gif

correct me if I'm wrong. But there is no official; release by rockstar saying that this is the "patch" anywhere.

 

there seems to be an "update" but this is not the patch. If it IS, then its sh*t. but I'm REALLY hoping that its not, and the patch will be released shortly.

Rockstar needs to optimize this game.

 

Social Club, if needed, should be in the game where you see the START, OPTIONS, GUIDE, etc. It should not be a standalone application.

 

They also need to set the R* tray icon to autoclose when you exit GTA IV.

Sorry if this was posted before, the topic has doubled in size since last night and onestly I'm not gonna read another 18 pages or so of this stuff....

 

I just found this a min ago when looking for the new readme, trying to find the new readme to see if car damage deformation is supported on gf6 and gf7's(as it is with older ati cards now)...

 

 

http://www.rockstargames.com/support/IV/PC/patch/index.html

 

 

Remember that url when someone goes and asks for the update again.

 

 

And btw this page speaks of another patch on the way:

 

http://www.rockstargames.com/support/req_s...4&submit=Submit

 

 

 

Edit:

Can someone post the new readme for v1.01 if there is one?

It also said this:

 

 

Known issues related to video cards and drivers:

Owners of Nvidia 7900 Series Cards - Download the latest Nvidia driver above to fix missing textures issue described here.

Owners of ATI cards and Nvidia cards - Click here if experiencing frequent crashes and/or missing textures.

Owners of ATI Series Cards - Click here for a fix to image quality (blacked-out textures) with certain MipMap detail settings are used.

Owners of ATI 1900 Series - At present the shadows may flicker and form large triangles in some instances. A patch will be released soon to correct this issue.

 

 

What I thaught was interesting was the mention of a new patch comming soon.

Damn dudes, most of the people here won't read a single page let alone a sticky.

I read the 1st 18 pages of this thread...

The link for the patch was posting a million times because people don't know how to read a single page worth of comments.

 

 

Update the game, if you are having probs, try the fix, if you are still having probs that state that you've done the fix and it's still not working.

Instead of posting, omg I have the same prob....

I download the patch via Rockstar official support web and I must say:

 

WOW!

 

Playing is now much smoother then before. Especially in Algonquin I can play very good now. Results from benchmark test are more or less the same, but in game I see big difference between now and before. tounge.gif Thanks Rockstar, fu*ck off Microsoft.
