That's an issue you're having, not a general issue.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Its a general issue!

 

 

Sometimes i wonder if these people are actually playing the same game... GTA4 and Saints Row2 are the most unoptimized games for PC EVER.

Yes can also confirm, startup has been slower for me as well, taking like 10 seconds after the intro to get into the menu.

Just turn off internet connection, load will be almost immediate.

So basically just block it using a firewall?

 

Edit: Nope, still get the 10 second wait after the R* logo sequence.

My black screen remains for about 30 secs/1 min... Do you have GTA IV installed on a SSD?

Yes, and my EFLC install on my HDD does exactly that.

 

Edit: Okay I'm starting to think my issue is different from everyone elses, I downloaded the entire patch 7 install using the steam console and I'm still getting the same thing. Hm, whatever.

Mine takes like 40-50 seconds once i run the game, i got a SSD but strictly for Windows. I got two HDD 2TB each, one for Steam and another for Origin and GoG.

It takes ages to load because R* did something with the gta4Browser which tries to load something before the legal screen transition has finished. I know it shows the niko artwork on the start screen but it still tries to load something. This is why it's also broken on 1.0.7.0 -> 1.0.0.0

 

It starts just fine offline.

So how do you skip updates on Steam? I've opened Steam multiple times, and since I have automatic updates off - it's waiting for me to download the update. I close Steam and edit IV's appmanifest file and hangs the state flag from 6 to 4 and save it, but when I open steam again, it changes back to 6. I've read that this works, but is there something else I have to do? Is there more than one appmanifest file than the one in the SteamApps folder?

So then it should work if I block it with a firewall, correct? I did that a few posts above with no effect.

They even broke the fonts... Jeez. Where tf is quality control?

 

Anyway, thank god I have a backup with my 1.0.8 with my mods here, still working - including MP and my saves. Kinda offtopic, but I'll ask anyway:

Does anyone knows how to fix this phone camera bug? It's preventing me to do 100% because of a side mission.

 

EDIT: I think I made a mistake; CryENB V3 is only for 1.0.7 - maybe that is causing this problem.

Yeah, it should work. I just closed the browser.exe in Task-Manager and then the game started immediately

This doesn't seem to work for me, tabbing back after I close the browser makes the game fail to tab in and just freeze on the last frame before I tabbed out
