Unable to modify bottom end graphics settings

Question

PrinceOfPol

When I first downloaded GTA IV it was stuck looping characters' intro when I started the game and I deleted it instead of properly uninstalling it. Reminded me to empty recycle bin as well. I tried a different torrent and it worked but the quality was terrible. It won't let me remedy settings and it says "Warning: Your graphics settings are near, or exceed, the suggested resource limits for your system."

Settings were indeed retained since I had minimal sound and subtitles as I first set it but that wasn't it.

    this works for desktop too, right click the shortcut on the desktop and select properties, then shortcut tab, then at the end of target quotes add a space then -nomemrestrict -norestrictions
    should look like
    "C:\Grand Theft Auto IV\LaunchGTAIV.exe" -nomemrestrict -norestrictions
    for example

    Thanks to patrick47018 I got on the right track for this one, however the offered solution seems to be for GTA IV on Steam in particular. If you have another version, like the Complete Edition on PC/DVD, the information below may help you out.

    The flag that I found working for me is "-availablevidmem 2.0" without the quotes. You can up it to 3.0 or 4.0 or whatever is applicable for your videocard memory.

Piracy is theft. We don't allow it or any discussion of piracy here.

 

Go buy the game legitimately.
