SMACKED!

Cockstar as always f*cking everything up.

 

They keep bitting that sh*tty V Online which is basically trash.

IV multiplayer used to be funny as hell, I remember when I used to play it over my PS3, ah, good times.

Me too, especially alongside the EFLC. I miss playing TLAD, the multiplayer modes that came with it were tons of fun.

You can find a good amount of players in ranked races, but some people can get impatient when you get in first place.

GTAIV is not dead, I survive, I play no mods, no hacks, I learn a lot.
I'm on Steam PC version. Gamertag : Christopher974

I advise you, I play only Original GTAIV, no hackers no modders or training cheat with me. See you ingame. I use to play at least all day when my wife is ok.



What platform?

 

Sorry I had not clue you answer me. I play on Steam PC version. ORIGINAL version with Episodes From Liberty City DLC.
I play more GTA IV cause I try to learn everything on it by myself, solo and multiplayer ( I'm an old XBOX360 player )

It's still active. If you're unlucky, you might find yourself in a lobby that contain modders who'll try to lag your console or kill you in several ways.

 

You could be unlucky in races, too. There are lots of impatient players who quit the game when they're not in first place.

You forgot to put the part in about modding them in.

Hello, I try it on console, but the fact that you can't host and kick and neither choose your matchs mean you have to fight all the hackers who ruins the game.
To be ok... do private server but you need friends...

On PC the game have hackers too, but you can do public session and some hackers don't have the anti-kick so you can kick them out if you are the host.
And on pc, you can reccord clips... good things... but on PC they all use MOUSE and disallow auto-aim while they have a better aiming, and NO recoil, so they only put the crosshair on you and kill you easy... specially when they use car... they take bullet proof rear car's and they keep their finger on the shoot withour recoil and they win... to counter this... you just need to be more smart, and run away, on KEYBOARD and MOUSE they are allways runing, so if you are good with analog go somewhere they can't easy acces, on top of buidings stairs etc... and use cover, and blind firing. Defensive is better with a controller until you get the perfect gosht memory of where they gonna be and prepare the deadly shooting with your brain, and put it on you fingers on the PAD. :)

See you ALIVE in the GTAIV PC version Multiplayer.
I use original game, I hate alterations, so no mods, no sh*t enb or else, only purist clean game for me !

To connect you need patience, and before this, you need to be sure that you operating system are updated, and you need a working RockstarGameSocialClul account, and Xbox LIVE account ( GameForWindowsLIVE ) account.

Your game must be upt to date too, if you use steam it's update to the latest version by default.

And another note, I wish you havent play in your background runing programs ( msconfig ) or files registry ( regedit ), preferable to use the default legit one if you have no good knowledge of it.

 

Then you must just launche the game, a R*SocialClub login prompt, just enter your working account ( email & pass**** )

And click play... ( If you are LUCKY, the game start instantly but... because of hackers and no more update security, the link to the servers show errors ... )

All you have to do is to, click play again and again ... it's random... if it works the window disapear and a minute after the game start.

That's really means you got connected LEGIT to the RockstarGameSocialClub account, and that a file have been send back to your computer from the R*SC servers.

YOU MUST DO IT one time at least on each computer you want to play GTAIV on.

 

Connect to your XBOX LIVE account, and start a game, save it, go to multiplayer ( using up phone ) start a LIVE freemode to test everything is ok. Then quit the game, start it again, the R*SocialClub launcher apears again... check if your email&pass*** is saved on the textboxes, if yes it means you are OK, close the windows.

 

Go to your game folder and rename Paul.dll to Paul.dll-disable

You can now play the game without the launchers errors.

 

If by choice you want to recover your game file cache via steam, you will have a new Paul.dll file in your GTAIV folder, and when you start the game you will have the R*SocialClub launcher again, with your email&pass**** on the check box, click play if you want to test your luck... but to avoid this just delete or put away the new Paul.dll file from the game folder.

Your old Paul.dll-disable file is still be there, keep it here.

 

I wish to can connect now.

By the way I understand that you are attract to use mods or whatever modifications of your gameplay, but understand and respect that I don't, and I want the true original gameplay without cheat, yes, for me mod in multiplayer when another one don't is like cheating. So to be good friends don't mod( hack ) your game if you want play with me.

 

I'm french, so I when I meet a french guy I'm happy, but if I see him use mod/hack/cheat, I'm not add him as Friend, actually I avoid him,

 

and prefer learn Russian to meet FAIR & LEGIT GTAIV players.

 

This is one of the other post I write about how to LEGIT connect to the game, and then rename Paul.dll to avoid the errors :

Rockstar's employee don't really care about the multiplayer errors, because they are not paid to work on it.

The errors come from piraty, you have just to be lucky to pass througt it, it take me 2h30min for my office computer, all I did was to work, and all time click play...

I was playing like this all time, and when cheaters enter my happy original game freemode and make thing appear from no where, control my character, and destroyed the all game with apocalyptic explosion and color change the graphic ingame who could give me epylectic crisis, and most of all make my game crash to windows and have to reclick the play buton again, my anger about mods/hackers become more important...

 

BUT thanks we found on the forums a way to pass the error by renaming the Paul.dll file

 

But it need to have a CLEAN first connection to the RockstarGameSocialClub servers via the launcher a first time for each machine ans each GTAIV game and GTAIV EFLC game.

 

:) have luck and join the anti-hacker club ! :)

There are still players on IV. Mostly boring Free Modes and badly set up Deathmatches, but there's also Races, Cops N Crooks and Mafiya Work up every once in a while.

For TLAD on the other hand, no random players on, though I do have a steam group and a bunch of friends playing it, we try to setup games every now and then.
