Suttering only on GTA IV

Question

MrEWhite

I'm having an issue with GTA IV. Basically, the game stutters like hell with the mouse cursor skipping, and this occurs only if I don't turn the Steam FPS counter on, but if I have it on it works fine. The issue still persists if I disabled the Steam overlay.

 

Also, this problem doesn't occur EFLC, which runs perfectly at max settings 60 FPS.

 

Here is an example of the issue. As you see, when I get a message on Steam or anything involving the Steam overlay occurs, the stuttering stops.

 

Here are my specs:

GPU: EVGA GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 Hybrid
CPU: i7 7700k @ 4.8 GHz
CPU Cooling: EVGA CLC 280
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 3TB 7200RPM <--- Installed on this
SSD: Samsung 960 EVO 512GB NVMe M.2
MB: Asus Maximus VI Code
RAM: 16GB G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB @ 3600 MHz
PSU: EVGA Supernova 1000 P2

Seemed to fix itself after a Windows update.

Fun times.

sound like a steam issue, gta4 does have glitching and slow down issues but what you describe sounds like steam rather than gta4

If it was a Steam issue, I'm pretty sure disabling the Steam overlay would fix it.

In addition to this, completely closing Steam and launching GTA IV still has the issue.

 

This also does not occur on version 1.0.7.0.

Boo f*cking hoo! With a setup like this - why should I even feel sorry for you?! 16gb OF ram - c'mon man! I imagine 20fps to you is a catastrophe while most of us are happy with 15 fps.

This makes it impossible to aim but okay.

The problem still happens with v-sync on/off? the game has some problems with FPS, maybe this is one of these problems.

It does in fact occur after doing this, even in the menu. But as mentioned, strangely not EFLC.

It could actually be your setup thats overkill for the game, your computers trying to run the game better than was intended
