Is there anyway when I open the game "Grand Theft Auto IV", disable the menu select if I want to play "GTA IV" or "EFCL"?

 

By the way, great job on the patch!

What about the "Collector's Item" mission bug where the game just goes eternal "loading" screen after the very last cutscene?

Rockstar? More like Jokestar amirite guys. user posted image

 

Oh and I totally gave up on this title since the game only loads LOD's instead of, you know, the normal models. Didn't happen before too. This game is a laughably bad port.

 

If this is any indication of R*'s future PC releases in terms of performance quality, then I'll pass.

Yeah, and thats the last time!

 

BUT I DID EXPECT EFLC CAME WITH THE SAME PERFORMANCE LIKE GTA 4 PATCH 5!

 

Patch 6 settings TOTALLY screwed the game.

How can they make the game worse???

 

I SIMPLY dont get it suicidal.gif

Someone please tell me what best graphic settings to use? My spec is in my sig, if anyone has similar spec can you just post me a screen of your settings page?

 

I am not being lazy - i have tried for around one and a half years now to get the best results. I have tried every combination of settings under the sun.

 

I upgraded graphics from 8800GTS 640MB to a GTX260 SP216 1792MB for GTAIV, and just recently from a E6750 4MB to a Q9550 12MB just for this f**kin' game - and it doesn't seem to have made a great difference.

 

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 run amazingly well, Crysis is more than playable - WTF is wrong with GTAIV?

 

Quad-core at 3.60GHz?! I bumped it up to 3.95GHz once - just to see - and it was better, but come on... who has 4GHz quads at home? 68*C getting a little hot for me as well. rampage_ani.gif

 

Please help me, I have no hair left from pulling the f**ker out.

Fixed lights texture in tbogt

More lag for TLAD

Less lag for TBoGT

 

patch 9:

Added fake improvement of memory management

Added a real vsync with framerate equal to 60

Users can choose from the new and old shadow solutions

 

patch 10:

Removed Liberty City due to lots of memory leaks

Game made pointless

Added a bug to crash the game after it loads

 

And thats how this all is going to end

i don't like to rant, specially when i love this game so much and waste so many time trying to make it better or at least playable.

 

But seriously, how, is it, possible, that, after what a year and a half, 7 patches later, there is still f#cking STUTTERING !!? Why can't i even map keys in TLAD? A critical control has been not set ? WHAT THE F#CK YOU GUYS MAKE ME GO INSANE !!!

No one's complaining about being forced to buy the game. People are complaining because it's sh*tty and shows that R* really slacked off when porting the PC version. Thus treating PC customers at a lower level than console users. For the same price.

 

If the PC version cost, say 20 bucks, and had a huge banner on it saying "WARNING: sh*tTY PORT", then less people would be pissed about being mislead and paying full price for a sub-par title.

 

I mean the fact that it took R* Toronto 7 patches to fix some bugs, shows that the game is broken beyond repair.

R* north should recreate the engine from scratch to fully support PC. At least for the next gta if not this.

Nietzsche's God

Funny that in all my time lurking and commenting in this PC Tip & Performance since I bought this flawed game, I never, at least rarely heard people commenting on the trees not being transparent enough. WTF. Seems like the more patch we get, the more lackluster efforts there will be by Rockstar of not only fixing the problem of this game, bu as well as the mess they had made since after patch 4. Texture Pop-Ins!!! Fix it! Undo patch 6!!!

R* = clueless, that's been proven now.

And they will prove it yet again if they ever port RDR to PC, just you watch.

 

But hey, at least the transparent trees are fixed... what more can we ask for, man? confused.gif

Haven't you noticed that R* hasn't answered on your questions lately? thas because he had enough with you and I have too!

I have a SH*TTY pc but even my game works perfect! Learn how to put a new pc together and stop bit**ing about your slow ass pc! This game is wonderfull and I love it, R* keep them coming wink.gif

Haven't played much because of RDR and when I joined a mp Race yesterday

with patch 7 my laptimes were really fast. After a few races like that other

players started saying "speedglitch, speedglitch!".

 

WTF?! Speedglitch?

 

But yes, it is true. Patch 7 has a huge flaw in mp Race mode where your car

is way faster then the other cars. It is hard to reproduce but I have seen

it with other players too. Sometimes a game restart helps, or otherwise a

system reboot fixes it.

 

This happened with an unmodded game, it is completely random and AFAIK

unrelated to certain hardware.

R* is embarrassed that they actually made the game worse with a new patch.

 

Do you use the newest patch or EFLC?

I got this patch working eventually, got rid of the stutters using the -reservedApp0 -memrestrict commands.

 

Oddly enough, patch 6 caused no problems for me.

I know I might be a pain in the ass, but...

 

 

 

Please, fix this. It occurs in my Radeon Mobility HD4200, which is pretty low-end, but also occurs in many other ATI cars, as well as a Geforce 9800GTX that my uncle owns.

Nah it's just that the pc that you or the computer shop where you bought your pc is put together by an idiot! DON'T SPEND YOUR MONEY ON STUFF JUST BECAUSE OF THE NAME! Brand doesn't give you performance everything else does.

The strange thing is this: It happens on my machine, but it didn't happen on 8800GTX, 8500GT, 8400GS, 9600GT, 9500GT or even an HD4350, but it happens on my HD4200, on my uncle's 9800GTX and I remember that a user saw it happen on a 480GTX. Seriously, it must not be the models, but lazy driver compatibility.

 

Not to mention that, by logic, it would happen on every card - even on consoles - if it was a modelling problem.

I only have my motherboard left from original shop-built parts of my computer, everything else ive replaced myself with new parts.

There isnt anything wrong in my installations, im about to replace the motherboard soon also.

 

GTX 275 is a decent graphics card imo. I use 584/896MB of video memory in gta 4, with shadows OFF, and im still getting popin textures when i turn my camera around. But framerates are much more stable with shadows turned off, i turn them off because medium and low shadows look like crap and high shadows give me lower framerates, and of course very high shadows make the game totally unplayable.

 

It isnt my rig's fault or its installations that this specific game gives me popin textures and stuttering. Its the memory management of this game, its totally out of control.

Maybe its my dual core cpu causing them, BUT ive seen people with quad cores having the same problem.

 

Ive installed old drivers - doesnt fix, ive used memrestrict - does fix but gives me lockups and then it wont load anything, ive used all kinds of commandlines - doesnt fix, ive used a memory managing program - doesnt fix, ive tried to lower my settings - doesnt fix

 

So what is so special of your built pc?
