Recommended Posts

Hi, i am having issues playing GTA IV (patch w/o mods) i get a really weird fps drops and i have a good rig, the game plays smooth for a few seconds and then the fps drops for 1/2 second and get normal again but this happens all the time making a pain in the ass to play i have everything at max, but i have to lower A LOT the graphics to get this fixed thats why its so strange i should be able to play it at max graphics or nearly max


My Specs:

First, download this update



If the problem persists, then make a .txt file named commandline.txt and put it in the Program Files (x86)\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto IV


and paste this in there


-memrestrict 2097152000


If it still doesn't work, replace the first commandline with this:


-memrestrict 2147483648
