Rockstar Toronto

Title Update v. 1.0.2.0

Question

Rockstar Toronto

Version 1.0.2.0

Today we released patch version 1.2 for Grand Theft Auto IV on the PC. A variety of fixes and enhancements were applied, including new sliders in the graphics menu for "Water Quality", "Shadow Quality", and "Reflection Resolution" to grant players more freedom to customize graphical settings as they see fit. Additionally, as a result of the patch we had to disable the default setting for direct input device support. To re-activate your supported gamepad simply enter the commandline, "-usedirectinput". The patch also addresses a variety of issues including, but not limited to, graphical optimization; bugs introduced with the release of patch 1; multiplayer and video editor fixes; and security updates. Please visit (INSERT LINK) for specific information about the changes and supported DirectInput devices. We want to thank the GTA community for your continued support as we continue to improve GTA IV PC so that it is the best experience possible.

You apparently never learn rockstar,

 

Don't make patches mandatory !

 

Now I am forced in offline mode, simply because I decided not to apply the patch.

 

Absolute rubbish.

hmmm asi loader wont work needs new patch

 

sad.gif olso i noticed that when u had a modified weaponinfo.xml in the first gta or 1.01 version the game woudlnt start because of the file checker

 

 

now with the new 1.0.2 the game just works fine and starts (filecheck disabler isnt working with 1.0.2.0 ) maybe they disable filechecking or something >?

It seems you can never please some people, they'll always find something to gripe about.

 

Rockstar, thank you very much!

 

I can now play with great FPS at 1024x768 (medium quality) and reasonable FPS at 1280x1024 (low quality)

 

A *vast* improvement. Prior to this patch, for me, the game was only playable at 800x600.

 

Well done - a very speedy "re-patch" indeed. For those of you who think Rockstar were slow to update, you've obviously clueless as to the processes behind something as complex as this game - actually, no, your just clueless all round really wink.gif

That's because of low shadow detail. It gets a little better on medium and high. Nothing to boast about though. Frankly speaking, I can live with that. They don't hamper the gameplay and at least, they don't flicker anymore.

it sucks that i have to reinstall(my game is modded) but i hope the new patch takes my fps higher and that it removed some bugs.

 

It is great to see that you are working on it as i was losing my trust in you.

Well I was happy to see another patch had come recently. However after installing I wasnt too happy. I just lost about 5 FPS............. Before I was playing with in the low 30's constantly and now 25 all the time. I am using the 181.22 driver though. Before I played with 180.84 and 181.20 I think, so maybe it's not a fair comparison. But I want this driver for Mirrors Edge. In any event I am quite disappointed with this patch sad.gif

My specs

XP SP3

E6400 @ 3.2 Ghz

4 gig 800 mhz ram

8800 GT OC edition

Then I have no idea what's wrong. I have the exact same shadows on low detail. But I turn the settings up and they get much smoother.

Oh my GOD, Rockstar did it again, Internet CAFE is broken with wthis patch, the "e" on tast and "LB" on gamepad do nothing when going to internet caffe.

And second, Rockstar change something( NOT GOOD) in handling the cars and Niko, i test this on tast and xbox controller, the car is way to hard to handle, when you want to go left,right on an intersection the car eneter in buildings, it seems that handling is not sensitive at all.

 

Rockstar, did it again, you done it with GTAIV, it seems that this is the last episode on PC... it's much to buggy... your company should emploied good people from Roumania or Russia, they are good on games.... your canadians did nothing....

 

And now, with nvidia drivers 181.22 i have 25-30 fps outdoor in day light, before the patch i have even 40fps outdoor.

 

Doesnt matter if i change the settings or not....

Fantastic patch Rockstar, very happy with this overall.

 

Just want to say that to those of you who are using stupid language and constantly complaining about everything, no one in their right mind will ever take you seriously. If you want to be taken seriously then act like someone with more intelligence please.

 

Again, thanks Rockstar for your continued support with this game.

Are you sure about this? R* have done nothing in the new patch that would affect the handling. It's the same for me.

Okay, so is it just a cockup in the patch that has caused lots of objects to be missing?

 

user posted image user posted image user posted image

 

In the first two there should be cones and other objects, in the third there should be metal gate things,

and I think some benches in that oval in the background (but I'm not 100% on that.)

 

Please tell me that this wasn't intended.

It might be again an user dependant issue then. I haven't come across nay problems after installing the patch, although I might have to check on the disappearing objects.

did they change independence radio in 2nnd patch? it plays user tracks. other times its like a talk radio station and after there done talkin it kicks back to the user tracks.

Change your audio options.

 

Instead of "radio", change to "shuffle". Option has always been there

I haven't seen any performance improvement when I play GTAIV with the new patch (even when *everything* is set to minimum...)
