GTA IV shadow problem

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Since I got GTA IV, and installed it, I kept on having this problem; the shadows go crazy especially on buildings.

My PC Specs:

  • Windows Vista - Service Pack 1
  • Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5000+ 2.60GHz
  • Memory (RAM): 2.00 GB
  • System Type: 32-bit Operating System
  • ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO (Aprox. Total Memory: 1011 MB)

Here's a small picture, hoping you can understand better what's going on:

I surrounded on both the "crazy" shadows, with red.

I also found a video on YouTube of someone who's got the same PC specs and the same error. Here:

 

 

 

I really wish to enjoy this game fully, so please give a hand of help. cryani.gif

You PC barely meets the specs, I suggest you don't bother yourself with such details. The game doesn't run well on low and that's that.

 

Things you can try: an older patch version, like 1.0.4.0 and some other GPU driver version.

What do you mean? How can I fix those shadows? Because you're saying that I meet the recommended specs. Almost.

 

Where can I download the 1.0.4.0. patch? cryani.gif

But I've read the System Requirements here on GTA Forums, and I only need Service Pack 1, which I also have.

 

Also, why don't you post your PC specs please?

No, he's saying that your system barely meets the minimum requirements.

 

I don't think any patch is going to help. You should not bother with the shadows at all and turn them off instead if you expect to get a better performance out of the game.
