Hello,

installed GTA4 v1.0.0, launched on the minimal setting, got 8 fps in benchmark b hardlagsand dissapointed.

It's the 2nd time I'm trying to play GTA4, last time I install it one year ago, but then everything was OK and game didn't lag, then I got problem with invisible roads n buildings. In fact it doesn't matter, this copy works fine but lagging like hell.

 

My hardware AMD 64X2 3.2GHz; 2GB 800MHz RAM; 8600GTS 256mb gigabyte.

 

I know that my video isn't the best variant, but why didn't it lag when i istall it a year ago?

 

Guys, I need to advices how to make it works.

Why do you even try to play the game with those specs.?

Why do you even show a face like that in the public?

Well ... why do you have 1.0.0.0?

Looking at your specs, you should use 1.0.4.0, you can also use commandline.

That might help a bit.

Honestly, those specs are Not for GTA4.

8FPS is unplayable even if it goes to 15 its horrible.

 

And you know it.

Yes, maybe that guy can not afford a better PC so he plays with what he has. You know, "can not afford" as in "does not have the money".

Thank you guys for full answers. If I don' know the game was running fine a year ago I won't even dload it.

In fact problem seems like not to be in hardware bcause I lauched it with nearly maximum settings and result was the same i.e. 8 fps

 

#@mkey I haven't upgrade the PC since I finished playin callofduty2 three years ago at serious lvl.

 

#maybe that will help. Game does't lag every second, it works fine for some seconds then 2-3 lags then it's OK again and so on.

Does somebody have idea what is the reason of that?

How would i know about that?

Fact is that those specs are terrible for this game, but great for many other.

I'm not calculating on money, weather, time and day, etc.

But simply what this game demands.

And i don't understand what my face has to do with this?

Is that something personal or is it connected to the game requirements?

I doubt it is personal

I think like many of us we are a little tired of people adding their opinion of 'get a new PC'

 

People know they need better PC's and they can read the requirements but what they are looking for is help squeezing a little juice out of their existing systems

 

 

'How would i know about that?

 

How would you know he can not afford a new PC?

Probably by realising that he has come for help here and not starting a topic like ' building a new rig..what you recommend?'

Oh, my bad.

Here i thought this forum was about GTA.

But it's also about personal money/status.

 

The fact that my face should in the picture proves it.

 

And why does he maximize the game? 8FPS?

Oh, guess thats my own opinion, we all know thats proper for gaming.

Well, then I'm not sure what you mean?

I started talking about GTA, and suddenly my face comes in.

Did you read the whole thread?

And how can you comment on how i should understand this thread when you don't understand it yourself?

No, I understand the thread completely, I am just a little confused

 

Why Mkey brought your 'face' into the equation, only Mkey can answer that himself

Yes, this forum is about GTA but at what quality you can play the game is based upon money available to you and what computer you own or have the capacity to build

 

The OP asked for help regarding FPS and lag

 

your response

Not for you to judge

His Game. His PC. His money

 

 

Honestly, those specs are Not for GTA4.

8FPS is unplayable even if it goes to 15 its horrible.

 

You are absolutely correct here but again, OP might be happy with 15 FPS

It could also be that he just don't want to spend money on a new machine.

I think its important to state what runs and what doesn't run GTA4, at least thats more relevant than my face.

When I was mentioning your "face" it was about your stuckup way of posting, not your physical resemblance.

Well, talk about stuckup way of posting, i would say your post is the worst and most off topic in this thread.

Stuckup >>>(a lot worse)>>> offtopic

 

Anyway, 265 since you are on borderline specification, any small changes to your OS can have a serious impact on performance. GPU driver, active processes and general condition of your OS all influence the performance levels you may or may not be getting.

@mkey thank you for answer

I read that defragmentation of harddrive helps smbody to get higher fps, smbody says 1.0.1.0 eats less resources and many other myths.

Can smbody tell me which of them are truth and how can I make GTA4 less lagging. Except overclocking and buying new parts.

 

btw what is better for GTA4 AMD phenomII x4 965 or sameprice Intel processor?

YEAH

Installed 180.84 driver 1280x1024 60dist = 12 fps

800x600 30dist = 20 fps

 

cu overclocked

Defragmenting can help, sometimes the effect is incredible as heavy fragmentation can kill performance.

Game versions are pretty much unpredictable, you should try them out, try 1.0.1.0 and 1.0.4.0, you can skip the others.

Usually (IMO) Intel processors offer more performance for the money, unless AMD manages to cut prices on some products of their line thus making them affordable.

Nice one 265!

Really pleased you got a little more 'juice' out of your system smile.gif

 

Not sure if it will be worth your while but I found a format and reinstall of Operating System / Drivers alongside reinstall of GTA IV helps but that may be a bit extreme and not sure how much extra FPS you may get from it confused.gif
