Rockstar Toronto

Version 1.0.3.0

Today, in our continuing effort to support and enhance Grand Theft Auto IV on the PC, we are happy to announce Patch 1.0.3.0 is now available for download. Notable features include graphical optimization; greater user control over graphic settings, including a new "OFF" option for reflection and shadow quality; and the elimination of remapping restrictions for keyboard and mouse, allowing for user-custom control schemes.

FATAL ERROR EFC20

 

Rockstar Toronto, can you fix this bug?

You need to use your original "LaunchGTAIV.exe" that came with your game to avoid this error.

Come on guys, don't completely block the use of mods online, lol!

 

Obviously there should be a pure mode and an un-pure mode. Just completely eliminating the ability to have mods online is wrong. I think stopping the mods from ruining every game was important and necessary, but modding is also important and therefore there should be a pure online mode where absolutely no mods can go AND there should still be an un-pure online mode where mods may be used.

Now you really shut up angry.gif

You you modder lol

LOL, I won't shut up.

 

Almost every game on the market is modded and allows mods online. GTA IV should be no different and should have pure and un-pure modes.

 

I want to be able to use mods in free mode with my friends, we had a lot of fun with the spawners and trainers. But I also want to play in clean, mod free TDM and racing servers, because I don't like being cheated. We should have pure and un-pure capability when playing online, period.

Hey, R*, please forbid modding in Ranked but allow in Player match, because some people play for fun or for doing up films which require many actors. Although I do not intend to make machinimas right now, I intend to make some in the future so I hope you guys can fix this. Although, I support the new anti-cheat as it makes Ranked matches more fun (hopefully).

Curse you Rockstar Toronto, now I have an excuse to play GTA 4 all over again  biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif race everyone to the clock tower to see it working  tounge.gif

CC, the online is so damn sweet atm! I've been playing free mode and co-op, and you don't find one damn cheater! And everyone that I played with was commenting on how good this was. Occasionally a cheater would join just to say "you're fags, Rockstar sucks" and similar stuff.

 

Haha, priceless! biggrin.gif

Can anyone please tell me if this patch works with the Steam version? I don't want it to break it again then having to redownload 14gigs.

Just to be safe, I'd recommend you wait a bit and see if steam updates their version too. Steam games are usually never updated with patches outside their own system, so it's probably not a very good idea.

Backup your Steam files first. There's an automated way to do it, so you shouldn't have much trouble. Right click on GTAIV and press Backup Files.

Hello Rockstar, i have a question. Will this patch block me to create my GTA IV Videos with mods in multiplayer?. For example, i am a Machinima.com Partner, and i really need the mods to create my machinima's.

 

Have a look at this video:

 

 

 

This video was made with player selector mod and car spawner in a private free mode server. I only use mods when creating videos, nothing more. Thanks for your response!

This patch still has not fixed the wheel deadzone issue.

 

Wheels still do not work in the PC version of this game, despite being advertised as supported. Unless you consider a wheel with 180 degree deadzone (which is where all the steering happens anyway) a working wheel...

It will be some time before I get to try it because for some f*cking reason this patch has decided it it won't install on my machine because "the rockstar social club isn't present" well that is pretty f*cking odd since the damn Rockstar Social f*ckING club is right here on my task bar and since I can launch the damn game FROM the social club window. I mean correct me if I am wrong but doesn't that mean the f*cking social club is present.

 

Sorry just incredibly pissed off with this sh*t, Rockstar Toronto is it possible for you to get one damn thing right.

 

Oh and if you dare go "are you using a legal copy" I swear I will do some banning, I have two damn legal copies here.

The kind of cheating with rockedguns sucked really yes. Or spamming the cars and objects. That kind was really annoying. But just drive around very fast with a car? Is that annoying? Or spawn a Sultan RS, not millions, just one to drive?

Or spawn a Sultan RS, not millions, just one to drive?

 

Just stick to real life - you can't spawn cars.

Live with the original game.

After installing the patch I was getting EFC20 as well. First I thought that its because of the mods but as I removed all of them the message was still there. Using the original LaunchGTAIV.exe fixed the problem and I was able to start the game and get to the menu. After checking the options screen I tried starting the game but during loading it crashed (no error message) only windows error reporting. I thought the savegame might be corrupt so I created a new offline account and tried starting a new game. I got through the loading screen and the intro audio started playing but after just a second the game crashed. Same thing no error message. What's going on, really not in the mood for 40 minute reinstall because a patch ruined my perfectly working game.

Anyway, did a complete reinstall. Games working now, on to test if the mods do. If they don't that's a huge loss.

Charlie, that means the installer doesn't know where to put the files. Something is missing from your registry. I beleive doing an installation "repair" will reset the registry keys.
