They could still "port" the Multiplayer to RGSC.

 

 

Would they? It`s Rockstar... a Company known to hate PC with Passion.

There's literally only 1 reason why there would be a "lack of keys".

It's coming soon, the patch 1.0.8.0 is coming. I can feel it.

It does makes sense... but i seen other titles run out of keys before, EFLC is still available, it is not likely though... but you never know.

Patch after 5 years since 1.0.7.0 ... Not think so. And Rockstar doesn't have a tradition to release surprise patches after long time without support.

They are doing developments on the game, however, so don't be surprised. Even though one of the "subs" on SteamDB evidences they've hired a different company to do QA and GFWL removal (Steamworks?) integration for them.

I don`t think they will improve the game at all, the most they could do is remove GFWL and the least they could do would be the removal of SecuROM.

 

Now, removing SecuROM would be a rather easy thing for them to do, and looking at the time they been Beta Testing "Something" for the last 6 months, which is worth 15.03GB of Data files and 354.77MB of Install files, both are Depots Encrypted according to SteamDB, it would be easy to assume they are in fact working on removing GFWL. Yet, they can still back pedal and never release what ever they are Working on for unknown reasons, so whatever they are doing, i can`t wait... i just want to enjoy this game without this horrible Cancer called GFWL which keeps disconnecting me in MP Games and causing tons of issues to my friends who try to play the game for the very first time, some of them can`t even run the game since it gives them error codes at launch. It just asks for so much crap to be installed in order to run properly.

It would be late as hell but I really hope they fix the game. The port is absolutely terrible. With maxed out settings the frame rate can go as low as 23 FPS on a motherf*cking 980 Ti and quad core CPU. That is outrageous for a 2009 game.

 

They can't avoid fixing it forever. They have the money to do it. If they don't do it now we might actually get to see mobile versions of IV before the PC version gets a fix. That would be a sh*tstain on their reputation and something I will never forgive them for.

They have the money, they just don't care a horse's sh*t over their old games, in fact, even the new ones to an extent... Things are definitely being done though, so we'll see. Can't just be for internal consumption, updating a 7 year old game internally.

Wrong, they released a patch for GTA IV last year on consoles.

Somebody still forgetting about the update for SA, which broke everything that 3.0 steam version fixed, added more bugs that weren't even in 1.0, remove some songs and added so called xinput support (aka you can now bind triggers as buttons 12/10)

GTA IV probably isn't old enough for them to remove songs, but it will probably happen.

Rockstar Support told me there's a team working on patching "specific older titles". I believe GTAIV to be one of them.

 

 

Can't believe I actually forgot about this, heh.

Cool, the only MP Online games are GTA4 and Max Payne, the later is using the exact same version of RSC from GTA5, and this was done not too long ago.

 

I don`t expect Performance improvements in GTA4, but as long as they remove that nasty crap GWFL and SecuROM i`m good.

Wait. That article is from 2014 and the changes are not really important. There's no mention of anything else. In other words, at this point we are more likely to see a decent mobile\next gen port of IV in the future than we are to see a fixed PC version.

means that GTA IV got taken out of Steam, possibly to be replaced with an updated version

EFLC and Complete editions is still there, they most probably run out of keys for GFWL

The keys can be easily generated by Steam, i think they run out of licenses from Rockstar to sell the game (individually), once they got a bunch new licenses they will magically get new "Keys".

You can request keys from the Steamworks developer control panel. It's Rockstar's choice not to do it, it's literally an option there. It's on them.

Odd i thought R* liked money.... Getting money for an old game should be dream for companies.

No dev costs = higher profit.... I dont get why they wouldnt want to sell more keys

It`s not that they don`t want to, the thing is Valve/Steam probably run out of licenses, in other words they are not allowed to sell the game individually until Rockstar sells them a whole bunch of Licenses, Steam could easily create Keys to give access to the game but that would bring a whole lot of Legal issues most likely.

 

Anyone wanting to get the game can just grab the GTA4 Complete Edition, since it contains GTA4+EFLC.

Valve generates keys on demand. It's Rockstar's choice to not generate keys and not Valve that has run out of them, as I have showed above. There's infinite combinations (almost). It might also be that they're preferring that people get the Complete Edition instead.

 

And legal issues? Steam is a content deliverer on demand, you publish your game in the database after registering with Valve as a partner and that's it. We're not talking about a physical retailer here or something.
