Game lags on x360 gamepad and ok from key+mouse

Question

vorob_
Hello, i’ve got really strange and inadequate problem. When i play gta 4 from keyboard+mouse all is ok and my performance is smooth. But if i connect my xbox 360 controller (wired / wireless / to usb 2.0 / to usb 3.0, no matter) in a few minutes i’ll have shutterings.


If i alt-tab game and then return all will be fine for few minutes and then here we go again.


If i disconnect gamepad, lags won’t go away. Only game restart helps.


My config:

Laptop Lenovo ideapad Y580

Intel Core i7-3610QM

Nvidia Geforce 660m

8Gb ddr3 memory

Windows 7 x64

332.21

Are you using the steam version? I had a similar issue...I didn't narrow it down to the gamepad, I narrowed it down to steam.

 

If you go to the GTAIV folder and open the game from LaunchGTAIV.exe (you don't have to close steam and disabling the overlay doesn't help), it *should* work fine. Did for me...and I still use the gamepad.

 

It wasn't frame lag I was getting...it was like...frame skipping and almost rubber banding. I've yet to pinpoint the cause, but in light of this new revelation from you about the controller (wireless 360 gamepad over here), it may be due to steams controller integration.

I plugged my controller in for some driving and have this exact same issue - long shot but did you get to the bottom of it?
