GTA IV PC Lag/FPS Drop

Hi!

 

 

So I recently got GTA IV for PC. When I first played the game, it ran at a high FPS rate at maximum settings. No sudden drops or anything. It was smooth. Now, when I play it, the FPS rate goes down at times for no clear reason. Then the game starts to lag. I managed to deal with it for a while, but there are times where the lag and FPS drops make the game nearly unplayable. It either goes away after a while, or it stays until I restart the game. What causes this? And how can I fix it?

It happened to me sometimes with GTA:TLAD
I think the problem is a memory leak.
you could try upgrading your PC ram
or use some memory optimizer.

I think 16 GB of RAM is enough for this game.

Didn't I already tell you that there is no way that you can run GTA IV on PC in maximum settings without FPS drops?

You laptop specifications are way beyond the required specifications for GTA IV and still you experience FPS drops.

 

Since GTA IV is one of the game which has one of the worst optimization for PC, there really isn't anything that you can do to get better FPS.

Unfortunately it's normal for some days for it to decide to run worse then other days. It sucks, I know. Hopefully someone will make a Liberty City map mod for GTA5 when it comes for PC. The GTA5 map mod for GTA4 came out pretty fast so who knows when GTA4 map comes to GTA5. To be honest I enjoyed cruising Liberty City more then Los Santos.

Does the FPS drop when you are in certain regions of the map? Additionally, as Kampret has stated your specs, and any other settings would be good to post here. :)
