GTA IV Patch 1.0.8.0/EfLC Patch 1.1.3.0

Recommended Posts

slarlac249

yup that's most likely the reason.

 

best option would be to reinstall the game and 1.0.7.0 backup the files and then install latest patch, put the 1.0.8.0 in a folder and copy over the 1.0.7.0 files.

Weird, after the new patch I got improved performance, all three now run above 60fps with ease.

I've noticed that as well. Before the patch, GTA IV, TLAD, and TBoGT would only run at 60 frames per second if I were inside a building. However, now they pretty much always run at a constant 60 frames per second.

Recently found out about the patch... Works perfectly on FX8350-R9 290 4GB. But on my older PC with Q6600 and 9600GT it totally ruined it. The main problem is the new shadows (the reason I avoided patch 7 as well) that kill the FPS even on lowest settings. Is there any way that I can keep the new update for online play and replace the new shadows with the older ones? I guess not but worth to ask...

I heard aswell yesterday about the patch.

 

I was really hyped quickly installed my disc version to see if i can finally launch the game, too bad i kept getting the activation error so i was disappointed.

 

Then i tried the steam version and both gta 4 and eflc worked on the first try and they kept working no secure2000 error nothing im so happy i can finally enjoy gta 4 after hours in the past getting it to work.

 

Game runs pretty good , optimization is still sh*tish but im not complaining.

 

Now i just hope simple native trainer gets updated

  • Added Display Controller image in Controller Configuration.
Well, the controller image appears for me only after loading the gameplay, as before. That's doubtful, but maybe it appears now when controller is plugged in?

You could kiss trainer dreams goodbye. No Scripthook or LCPDFR updates, guys: http://www.lcpdfr.com/forums/topic/69799-112916-gtaiv-patch-8-notes-pc-only/?page=2#comment-460914

So, the hooks won't be updated, I guess.

How to downgrade to 1.0.7.0 from Steam?

These are the files that are actually copied to the game folder, not just the EXE or some sh*t. Not sure someone posted anything like this before.
1.0.7.0
1.0.8.0

Could the source code be in the scripthook itself?

No, source code is the source of the code, meaning it's unobtainable after it's been compiled.

Strange thing that they didn't include some "new old" files that are in IV 1.0.8.0 patch, into EFLC 1.1.3.0 patch, namely, those 3 shaders (btw, they are not what disable grass shadows - some EXE changes I guess) and both episodes' Italian offline title screens. Why new old? These are from 2010 and can be found in the first version of EFLC (1.1.0.0). There are also GXTs (texts) in IV patch that older than 1.0.6.0/1.0.7.0 ones but perhaps something like that for EFLC patch wasn't included as unnecessary.

There are no new script.img and even script_network.img too for EFLC patch, maybe unnecessary as well.

I have just played with the new patch.

 

1) Still GFWL.....crap.(Saving and annoying element)

2) When in helicopter still a bit flickering textures when high altitude.

3) Trafficlights still invisible until at distance of 20 meters?? Looks ridiculous.

4) Drivers still invisible until distance of 20 meters?? Looks ridiculous.

5) Spawning traffic and the way the ai drives is still like sh..

6) Bus and truck wheel at distance still is popping out to the side only when close the wheel jumps into place??

 

These are just some of the elements that should have been corrected, but not......maybe in 10 years........Get a grip, Rockstar, I am not impressed................

the trafficlight distance is affected from the detail distance, when you make it for example on 100% then you see never trafficlights popping in

So which patch has the best performance? 1.0.8.0? Or is 1.0.4.0 still the king of all patches?

If you have Windows 10, you MUST play with GTA:IV 1.0.8.0 and GTA:EFLC 1.0.3.0, the latest patches. I've noticed frame drops too.

By the way, can someone tell me if GTA IV runs better on Intel HD 4400 or Nvidia 820M?

How does it run?

Why? Patch 4 runs just fine on Win 10.

The 820M ofc, Intel's integrated graphics suck dick when it comes to gaming.

Because GTA IV 1.0.8.0 prevents the 2GB RAM+ graphics card bug, which doesn't save any settings because of a "modern" graphics card. If you don't have this problem, it's just fine for you.

 

If your game crashes in the mission "Out of Commission", it's due to 61+ fps, if not it's ok to have version 4 which supports mods.

 

Anyway I'm using Win.10 64 bit, Nvidia 820M (2GB vram), processor Intel i5 2.40 GHz, 4GB ram.

 

Somehow bad because of 4gb ram, how does your game run with it?

This is for who has frame drops, or wants his/her game to perform better.

 

First step:

Create a text file in your GTA IV directory, named "commandline".

Open it, copy:

-nomemrestrict

-norestrictions

Save.

 

If it does not let you, create the file into the desktop and move it to the GTA IV folder once done.

 

Second step (this because GTA IV is a very big game for low devices, so it lags having to read all those files at once):

  1. Download "Contig.exe" from this link.
  2. Move the Contig.exe to your GTA IV directory.
  3. Create a shortcut and put it on your desktop. Keep the name of the file as it is.
  4. Enter shortcut "Properties" > "Target", rename like in the example below:
    "C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto IV\Contig.exe" -s
    This means you only have to put -s ('space'-s) after all the Target row.
  5. Run the shortcut as administrator! and wait until it installs.

Do not play any games while doing this. Close your apps in background.

Otherwise, it may mess up your GTA IV directory with strange data or something, and it will not work as it should.

 

Once all is done, open the game and play. It should have compressed your game files, so the performance is better than before.

If there's a problem with graphics and/or graphic settings, delete the "commandline" text document. That's all.

This means that the patch 1.0.8.0 is specially for who had problems like me. I couldn't save settings with 1.0.7.0 previously, because they were resetting every time I was starting the game.

Even with the best commandline I could create.

Best solution to this problem, XNGamer. I just optimized the game in Nvidia Gefore Experience. It did work fine every time I start the game when I had 1.0.7.0 before 1.0.8.0 was out. I know it was not best when you think it was crap software, but I felt it was best solution while you had the commandline.txt file.

You mean

GFExperience optimization +contig.exe +commandline.txt?

 

Anyway I have 2 graphics cards:

-Intel HD 4400 576mb vram

-Nvidia Geforce 820M

The game runs them both altogether for me, the solution for this is my post above.
