LOW END COMPUTER GUIDE. WORK`S

Question

Capten Morgan

Play`d GTA IV on rather low end computer and it works..! no lag..!

Do this...!

1. defrag

2. clean your regist

3. update all your card`s

4. reboot

5. install netframework 4.5 or latest ( do some reading )

6.reboot

7. install clean GTA IV + EFLC no patche`s ..!! don`t start the game..!!

6. reboot

7. take down patch 1.7 for GTA IV and patch 1.2 for EFLC and patch the game`s

8. reboot

9. turn of your antivirus comletely..! make shortcut to desktop and run the game`s from there..!!!!!!

 

If you run the games on STEAM or R-socialclub, windows live or what ever its up to you..!

but this will make the game run a bit slower..!! and if you are online the computer works more.

I dont use any of this, but i can if i will, i have both steam and R-socialclub and windows live.

 

In game options: never ever us V-synk, anastrophic filter set to x2, reflex low or off, defination on,

distans set to 22 or 1, ditails set to 10, vehicle set to 18, texturer and shadow set to medium, i have

text and shadow on high, but start at medium..! ( i dont have a hi end cp..! )

Reselution: same that your computer runs on..!! noting else.!!

For Nvidia user`s like me, go to Nvidias control-panel ( right klick on desktop :rol: )

set 3d program to`"let the 3d program deside" and then set the 3d program

in middle between prestanda and quality.

 

If you want to mod your game like me, dont ever start modding befor you

made your first save in game...!!!!!!!! and use this tools works 100%..!

If you have patch 1.7 and 1.2 for EFLC..!

 

 

 

AND INSTALL IN THIS ORDER..!

 

1. NET Framework 4.5

2. X liveless ( take down the new one, it`s awsome..!!! )

3. scripthookdotnet ( version 0.5.1.0 )

4. SparkIV 0.7.0 Beta 1

5. GTA EFLC Trainer ( take down latest version )

6. reboot...!

 

And please, read the read me in all the programs..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Take "hot coffee" and cookies relax and and do the reading

I hope this will help some one, my games run like butter

in sunshine...... and as i sad, I HAVE NO HI END COMPUTER..!

 

 

 

 

My pc: Laptop Asus notbook

 

Windows Vista home Premium servic pack 2

Cpu Duo Core T6500 2.10 Ghz

Ram 4.00 GB

32 bites system

Nvidia Geforse GT 130 M ( updated on line )

 

 

 

AND LAST:

 

GTA IV and EFLC take som time to get warm so to speak, so when

you put in mods in the game put one in..! not 2 or 3,4,5, mods in the

same time...!!!!! start the game and play a little an see so your mod

works, it will maybe lag a little after mod install but as i sad, give the game

a little time, when i put in a new car it lag a little from start ( not every time ) after

about 10 min. it runs like butter..! and i save the game,so giv it time..!!!!!!

 

And after about 2-3 days it runs better and better,so all i can say is this

games need time on lo end cp..!

 

 

This little guide is just a start up to get yhings going,you can always

tweak more, i am going to try the MSI Afterburner,its a lot of reading

about that,but i will give it a try.

Ps The msi Afterburner is not just for Msi it works with almost any cp

 

Best regards Capten Morgan............ :r*::r*::r*:

This guide is really stupid I'm sorry but this is just not going to work for low-end laptops mainly because you aren't changing anything.

The game just has heavy and unoptimized effects, here is the effects that ruin performance/fps:

 

1st place: Shadows

2nd: Reflection

3rd: Bloom

 

The good performance need clean registry and defragmented HDD and when you start the game for the first time you need to set the dispaly, audio, graphics ... etc settings and never ever ever change them!

Ok...sorry you feel that way mr Quechus13 :barf:

But i wrote this small guide to all the newbies here that dosen`t have o clue about pc-games

and how they work and the effect the games has on the computer, and i did see a lot of

newbies-question`s all over this bord about: How to install,how to do that,what do i need,

can i run the game,wher do i put my mod`s,my cp is so slow, etc etc..!!!

And i have seen a lot of post`s like this : "this mod don`t work,what am i doing wrong.? by the way i run

version is 1.0.4 please help me." And in the start of that mod topic it`s clearly wrot like this:THIS MOD

IS FOR VERSION 1.0.7 GTA IV AND 1.0.2 FOR EFLC..! :miranda: This is just one exemple..

 

The point iàm after here is that they don`t do the reading..! because the kid`s are so hot to get

GTA and start puting in mods.!, and they dont have a clue y it doesn't work..

And yes you are absolutely spot on, i havent changed anything..!!

 

And that is not the point of this guide,the point is if they don`t do it right from scratch

they have the same chance like a snowball in hell to get this game work ok on lo end

pc..!

And any program or internet conection you run at the same time with your games do effect on

lo end cp.

I have about 40 mods in GTA, 180 mods in OBLIVION, 150 mods in FALLOUT 3, and about 20 in TDU 2,

and the game`s run smoth, and in GTA IV AND EFLC i have textures and shadows on high settings

and i dont have a hi end cp as you can see...

And iam sorry for the topic info. i should have wrote this : GUIDE FOR NEWBIES ON LO END CP

 

And again, this was ment to be and is a start up guide for newbies, just trying to get the

newbies to start reading and take is slow and learn.. :blink:

just trying to help.

And as i sad, i don`t have a hi end pc,but if you do it right from start and you must.!

then it will work for you....

AND SORRY AGAIN MR QUECHUS13 if you did not understand me

LAST: ALL NEWBIES DO YOUR READING.....!!! :miranda: :miranda::cool::cool:

 

REGARDS Capten Morgan.... :r*:

It's logical, that steam uses ram, isn't it? No usage of steam = more ram accessable.

I don't think we can blame Steam here. Think you are clutching at straws

Rockstar were having a laugh about an enjoyable gaming experience on low end systems - it's just a fact

You can tweek and manipulate all you like but it just has a placebo effect in most cases

Not blameing Steam, that is just a tiny thing over all..

so all you suggested is proper pc maintenance we should do anyways. sorry but you are not very smart. i own a computer company as most here know, and son you are just grasping at straws. now i know youll come back to argue your point, but you are WRONG. nothing you did there would do anytrhing to HOW YOUR LAPTOP USES ITS AVAILABLE HARDWARE. all you did was smooth the files out a bit and save 1.5 mb not running steam. dude i know you have your hopes up, but your suggestions are really no help at all.

ok man let me put it to you this way, i own a multimillion dollar computer company, i have degrees and sh*t.... your suggestion is so damn full of bullsh*t hot air that you float around the room. man you dont know what you are talking about... your instructions seem more like some voodoo ritual that makes it run better... well let me set you down, not even a planetary alignment will help. you are just wrong, and admit it or not, you know deep inside you are wrong. again, your suggestions are like putting a propellar on a jet plane, it just doesnt make any difference. otherwise go away.

It's a 32 Bit program. It's very unlikely to be able to use 4GB.
