Question

Rockstar Toronto

Today we released a Maintenance Update for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV. This update ensures all copies of the game are properly aligned for the next gold master build pressing. We have also improved the resource management numbers to detect and adjust accordingly to different operating systems.

 

Like all previous updates, this contains all the fixes from past title updates, so there is no need to re-install previous patches if you have to re-install the game for any reason. A direct link to download Maintenance Update 1.0.4.0 can be found here. For more details and download links for other languages, check out the Grand Theft Auto IV PC support page.

It's an update, not a patch. It's just a preparation for a patch.

mercie_blink.gif Why it's called 1.0.4 then?

Maybe its the patch that will get the DLC ready, we can be skeptical, but we are not going to know for sure what is it until its released...

Damnit people, "gold master build pressing" refers to releasing a new version of the game to retail. The word PRESSING refers to disc pressing... There won't be another patch for a while now.

Now that my Mod question has been answered, I'm going to hold off on 1.0.4.0. I already have extremely stable performance with very little graphics related issues and I can run the game smoothly at 1920x1080 w/ most of the settings on High or Very High.. So waiting a bit longer for an "actual" patch isn't going to kill me..

 

I don't play this online anyway, so I'll stay mod happy tounge.gif

This update ensures all copies of the game are properly aligned for the next gold master build pressing.

So you've finally decided to admit all following versions to this moment were BETA releases. smile.gif

This is a big step forward for your company model, good job.

Great news. Now that the Beta has been tested, you can release the final version that isn't gonna be a sh*tty console port.

 

 

Nice, let's HACK this one. biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

Go Alex! Go!

I'm guessing that since Windows 7 hasn't officially been released yet this patch doesn't support it. Or maybe when it detects Windows 7 it'll optimize for Vista.

what the.... i lauch game, Live says i'm signed into Offline mode. I click sign-in, it says there's a GAMES FOR WINDOWS LIVE update. So i click on ok and it updates and so on. Then my mods stopped working so i check the version of my gtaiv.exe and it says 1.0.4.0. lolz? i didn't even want to update to 1040 because i wanted to keep my mods working till the next update. Plus it says Windows LIVE update didn't mention any 1040 at all. now all my mods doesn't work. scripthook doesn't work, and sparkiv doesn't work either. sigh.

 

in-game benchmark:

Statistics

Average FPS: 51.81

Duration: 37.14 sec

CPU Usage: 84%

System memory usage: 97%

Video memory usage: 76%

 

Graphics Settings

Video Mode: 1680 x 1050 (60 Hz)

Texture Quality: High

Texture Filter Quality: High

View Distance: 26

Detail Distance: 51

 

Hardware

Microsoft Windows XP Professional

Service Pack 3

Video Adapter: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260

Video Driver version: 185.85

Audio Adapter: Auzen X-Fi Audio [0001]

Intel Pentium III Xeon processor

 

I don't understand why it says Intel Pentium III Xeon as i have a c2d e8400 OCed to 3.6???

Also the in-game bench doesn't really reflect the real game performance. For example my fps dropped to below 30 with a few cops chasing me at Star Junction.

 

kinda disappointed with this patch. but i'm gonna try the 186 driver see if it changes anything.

pfew..! appologees, I have to correct myself... you really scared me there for a moment I've put so much time and $ in getting this game to run optimal...! I couldn't believe an upgrade would make it worse.. and luckely it didn't..!

 

Maybe this is usefull to other people too!!: It seems the update turns "clip capture" back to "on" which causes a nasty stutter every 2 seconds on my machine.. I turned it back off, now it runs smooth again..!!! Maybe even smoother then before..? Still lost a few fps here and there but nothing serious...!

 

So now the game runs fine on my machine with the latest update of IV and the latest nvidia drivers.. basicly my IV worries are over...! Thanks Rockstar!

patch? two months? bigger patch?

 

the 1.0.4.0 is not a patch, it's an update so they can line up the patched retail version.

 

1.0.3.0 was probably the last patch.

Just reinstalled the game after months leaving it alone because of the cheat problem in multi player, so if this update does not fix the cheat problem I really hope the next patch comes soon, I miss crazy multi player races biggrin.gif .

I think rockstar should scrap the ranked games completely because of the cheating.

Hmm this update didn't do any good to my game. In fact, it make it run worse. sad.gif

 

Benchmark with patch 1.0.3.0

 

 

Statistics

Average FPS: 50.22

Duration: 37.18 sec

CPU Usage: 89%

System memory usage: 95%

Video memory usage: 83%

 

Graphics Settings

Video Mode: 1280 x 1024 (75 Hz)

Texture Quality: Medium

Texture Filter Quality: Highest

View Distance: 40

Detail Distance: 40

 

Benchmark with maintenance update 1.0.4.0

 

 

Statistics

Average FPS: 47.59

Duration: 37.15 sec

CPU Usage: 89%

System memory usage: 89%

Video memory usage: 70%

 

Graphics Settings

Video Mode: 1280 x 1024 (75 Hz)

Texture Quality: Medium

Texture Filter Quality: Highest

View Distance: 40

Detail Distance: 40

 

FPS dropped a bit, but the system and video memory usage are lower. I wouldn't mind those 2/3 FPS loss, because I don't even run the game at 50 FPS lol. That benchmark doesn't work really good.

 

Ingame I have lower FPS than usual. I can run between 30/35 FPS, sometimes even more, but now I run at 30/25, and sometimes, when it's raining and a lot of action is going on, they drop for 20. This didn't happened before the patch. Even with rain, during the night and fighting the cops, FPS wouldn't drop below 28/30. So this update made my game run worse. I hope it's not the final patch, and the "gold press" or whatever is that called, isn't a retail version of the game with all the patches applied. That would suck bigtime.

 

Anyway, thanks Rockstar Toronto, at least you're still trying to fix your bad port. Even though the game is worse for me now, it's better for others, so that means you're trying to get it fixed. An advise: do a better port next time. turn.gif

 

PS: Since mods don't work now, that means cheaters are not online anymore? biggrin.gif
