Rhapsody99 posted a link for the patch on page 5.

 

Edit: Sorry I guess that link doesn't work anymore.

Please R* just provide an optional patch for people who want the game to run like it used to before patch 6; you'd make a lot of people very happy.

Now that's what I'm talking about, thats all i want.

 

I JUST WANT THE GAME TO BE LIKE PATCH 4 & 5!

What i don't understand with these people is why they don't just apply Patch 5. There, stop crying.

That means no multiplayer!

 

And EFLC comes with settings=patch 6!

 

So PLEASE explain how I can apply Patch 5 settings to EFLC?

 

Start thinking or I WILL cry over your stupid comments!

Bohoo no multiplayer, i think i will kill myself suicidal.gif Don't worry, there is another solution. Get a better computer. Problem solved!

 

And besides, you never mentioned EFLC, so don't tell me to think before post, you should think.

I really doubt R* will make any gameplay mechaninc changes, fixing bugs is rather more important.

I think that the lack of recoil would be seen as a bug more than a change of gameplay mechanics since it is supposed to be there and was even present on the 360 pads for a time and it is definitely present in both console versions and DLCs. I could've sworn that the numbers for accuracy and what not were also present in the game files just somehow not being used though I could be wrong there and I haven't been able to find the old thread on the subject.

Great Patch ! It fixed my micro-stutter i was having @ 100% settings.

 

Are you ever going to fix the NUMPAD 7 key -- Home key conflict?

One thing that caused this for me and took months to figure out, was gpu temps. After they get a few minutes to reach a certain temp, my gpu was throttling back. Might not be your problem but worth checking if you havn't already.

nah, other games run totally fine, besides gpu doesn't really get hot while playing gta 4 cause CPU bottlenecks it.

Yeah, in my case, it was the heat produced by the cpu, heating up the case so much, which caused the gpu to get very hot.

My spec:-

Asus Striker II Formula

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 3.60GHz

Palit GTX260 Sonic SP216 @ Stock

Corsair Dominator XMS2 PC8500 @ 925MHz

Coolermaster RealPower 620W Modular PSU

Noctua NH-U12P SE2 Cooler

 

I get poor performance with GTAIV. I know about the nVidia beta drivers - 180.84 - I have them installed on XP64 Pro now. I have turned all shadows OFF in the hope of better performance. GTAIV is a strange kind of game where graphic settings have little or no effect on performance. Here are my current game settings.

 

Resolution = 1440 x 900

Detail Settings = High

Reflection Resolution = Medium

Water Quality = Medium

Rendering (Anisotropy) = Highest

Shadow Settings = Off

Shadow Density OFF and V-Sync ON and DOF ON

 

My general FPS is DAY=40-60 NIGHT=28-45

 

I have tried ALL the patches right up to 1.0.6.0, and have decided that 1.0.4.0 is the fastest. I have extensively tried different driver settings to produce the best results but am starting to lose faith in this game. (It took two years!) I was wondering if anyone out there had any suggestions or advice for me with this problem.

 

I don't want to just put the problems down to bad coding, it's too easy a solution. Bad ports, bad chip etc etc...

Oh yeah, and overheating is not the issue! CPU stable at 55C and NB at 58-62C clocked.

I could easely get a better computer, no problem.

 

But all other games run fine, so should I get a better just because Rockstar release a terrible performance product.?

Even you can see that's not right, right?

 

If you are just slightly updated, then you will know that EFLC comes with the new "system", on my disc version.

 

Again, start using your brain! suicidal.gif

 

PS: I'm starting to cry over your stupidity cryani.gif So on that single part, I guess you are right. wink.gif

We did not tweak the shadow map sizes, Very High shadows require a late model video card with 1.5 - 2 Gigs or VRAM to work as intended.  High Shadow Quality is the rough equivalent to Very High in the old solution.

question since you guys have a account on a gta 4 modding forum

 

why are you constantly killing modding for this game modding is what makes gta 4 to be free to do whatever you want but you keep adding modding locks to make it more and more difficult for modders to mod this game and i don't mean multiplayer cheating etc i mean single player modding gta 4 is meant as a free roaming game and with new vehicles to enjoy it with makes it even more amazing it took modders like 7 months to make models possible which was the golden era for this game

 

if you just invited modders to mod it insterad of locking scrambling handling lines so you have to use a unlocker all that

 

truth to be honest i would probably get tired of playing this game if no mod what so ever existed right now i would play it without a doubt (can't due to waiting for pc parts) because i got mods for it without them i wouldn't

 

i been playing this game since it released and never got sick of it due to all the new wounderful modifications like new police sirens ELS with extra lights added graphic mods vehicle mods godmod customizing mods and it goes on and on and on if you use modded vehicles for the game traffic messed up which many would be thankful if you gave a working fix which would be support for the modding

 

so why are you trying to stop modding for this game? gta was meant to be modded please don't kill modding it is the one amazing this that makes gta series game amazing

 

ontopic

why wasn't anti aliasing added to this game thats the one thing i want without it everything it all messed up jaggy theres offcourse enb series which i havn't tested yet for AA but why wasn't it added in the first place?

i agree with you cool.gif i only bought the game to drive mod cars, i seen so many custom cars on youtube. that it made me go out and buy this game, just for the mods. also i am still using patch 1.0.0.4 and my game runs fine, i am not going to install this new patch and put an Axe in my bed room door again, when it wont work ohh no biggrin.gif

I'll have to agree with you here, they did not make such a good PC port. But, looking at the other side, why must the ones with bad computers (with bad computers i mean computers who isn't able to run GTA 4 decently) cry about making the game work on their specifications? The game isn't designed to run on 2002 PC's. If you want to enjoy the game to it's fully extend, get a much better PC, otherwise just stfu.

 

 

Even you can see that's not right, right?

 

What's wrong with it? Too poor? lol.gif

 

 

If you are just slightly updated, then you will know that EFLC comes with the new "system", on my disc version.

 

EFLC does not come with a "new" system, it's just the GTA IV core with changes to the player model, HUD coloring, etc. If you still insist it's a new system, please refer me to where you got that from.

 

 

Conclusion: If you can run GTA 4 decently - good. If you have a very good computer, but doesn't run GTA 4 well - then you can complain. But not with stoneaged computers. Either get a good one, or stop crying.

 

 

Again, start using your brain!  suicidal.gif

I've been laughing my ass off over your retardness anyways, so we're even. tounge2.gif

You're an idiot. We are getting annoyed about the fact that the game used to run very well/perfectly on our computers up until patch 6. My computer meets all the requirements easily as evidenced by the fact that I was able to run the game without problems for the 12 months I owned it pre patch 6; so when Rockstar suddenly release a patch that makes both performance and appearance worse for me I think I have the right to get annoyed.

See here:

 

Rockstar has announced that Patch 6 for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV will be available on Games for Windows LIVE very soon. The patch will include all the enhancements found in the PC version of Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, which releases tomorrow in North America.

Ergo, patch 6 consists of engine tweaks made specifically for EFLC (back-ported to the original GTAIV engine), and no EFLC binaries exist prior to engine version 1.0.6.0.

It is possible to run EfLC on Patch 5. But you have to do the DLC versions.

After installing this patch "in game" with poor results, I have reinstalled the game and installed patch from outside. It is slightly better, but still there is horrendous poppin, vegitation mostly. Also it is still annoyingly jerky. I give up, will return to previous patch.

I've Been Trying since 2 month to Downgrade EFLC to Patch 1.0.0.4.

Is there someone who know how to downgrade it.

The Best I can Get is an error message saying you must be in version 1.1.1.0 to play.

I dont know even how you try, but you should do it on 1.0.0.0 of EFLC. simply install again and than try what you want.
