IV Song Removal Due to Licenses expiring.

And what is the Rockstar's fault? Many songs didn't get removed which means they are licensed forever or >10 years. Blame the rightholders.

 

Rockstar failed to mention this, or basically GTA IV today in their newswire, but didn't fail to mention the SMUGGLER'S WEEK IN GTA ONLINE. f*ck rockstar!

 

What should they mention? «GTAIV Gets Some Songs Removed»? There are a few articles on the Support website already.

If you play GTA IV and EFLC on Xbox 360 or PS3 just do not update the game and stay in the old version (who plays online will be required to update). Who plays on the Xbox One for backwards compatibility with Xbox 360, there is no escape, since basically the disc when inserted is downloaded from the game and the disc is just a pass to play the game.

You can just play offline on Xbox One lol even if you have the disc.

 

How do I know? Because I did.

Me too... I was really hoping to have at least a decent patch that could fix something for this anniversary. The .exe file is even the same!!! I have to keep GTA IV on medium settings with a GTX 970 tu run it at a decent framerate, GTA V runs way way better on my PC.

The good news is that because they opted to fix absolutely nothing there's nothing stopping people on PC with franken'd installs (well...really just prepatch with the new paul.dll) from playing online.

Anyone know where I can find this junk?Of course,I'll downgrade soon after I've tested it.Reason why is that there is no update available through GFWL,and R* haven't put up a link.

Funny, for SA they tried making the song removal "update" worthwhile by trying to add some fixes. This is literally a patch that just removes content from the games. Lol good job Rockstar. Happy 10th Anniversary GTA IV.

Yes but if you try to update another game it will download the minute you go online. That is what I tried to do and it just started updating without warning, If I mess around with my TV the 360 version looks almost as good so it I guess I am playing that from now on.

Sheesh, man. I was kinda feeling like Id not be too fussed with these removals, but after seeing whats gone theres too many losses for me to update my game.

 

Its a damn shame that the songs I like had to go, but ah well. I rarely ever use my 360 online so I wont be effected.

 

Anyone know if playing the downloadable versions of TLaD/TBoGT on an IV disk can go under the radar? Or I will I need to buy a physical copy of EFLC?

I speak this for whoever is to play from now the GTA IV or EFLC on Xbox One for backward compatibility with this change and download the game, will have to unfortunately play that way.

Yes. In IV, everything on Vladivostok FM except for "Liberty City: The Invasion" by Seryoga was removed and replaced with other Russian songs.

Here is a list of music added(+), removed(-), and also a couple renamed. Based purely on the american.txt files.

GTA IV:

-	0xE9C319C0 = ZiT! Spotted SERYOGA: King Ring

So I just noticed this. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I f*cking hate rockstar with passion now! Rockstar is officially worse than EA!

I'm not sure. I just made sure I had it off last night and then went ahead and went offline and on top of that disconnected my wifi connection. I heard on Xbox 360 patches could be removed but not sure about One.

That sucks. Those tracks really did set the atmosphere in IV. I'm unsure if the atmosphere will be the same without those tracks.

New Minor features has been added which is a pro- for this update.

 

FPS boost and graphical optimization according to some new options on the graphics menu like the Texturefilter Quality which has 5 options.

But whats bad on this option is, that textures far away are a bit clunky. Also saw issues on some car textures.

The game became a bit smoother at rainy or foggy weather.

I assume you're talking about PC? Absolutely none of that is this update. The executable is identical and they didn't touch anything but paul.dll, the GXTs and audio related stuff.
