GTA IV Steam VRAM fix?

Question

LightCR

Hello, I have GTA IV on Steam, and I realized that the game only detects 512 MB of VRAM after the latest update that upgrades your version to the Complete Edition, I already tried putting commandline.txt in the root folder, and putting the launch parameters on Steam, but the game still is detecting only 512 MB of VRAM, my OS is Windows 10.

My PC specs:

- MSI ARMOR Radeon RX 570 8GB
- AMD FX 6300 3.52 GHz
- 8GB of RAM

There is a way to fix this after the latest update?

This was fixed a long time ago. I upgraded too and haven't had this issue. 

Are you sure that you upgraded? Are you sure that it detects only 512MB of VRAM?

Yeah, I'm sure I'm upgraded, because now I have the episodes from Liberty City (TLaD and TBoGT), besides, now the game has the overlay of Rockstar Games Launcher, and the commandline.txt no longer works.

That's interesting because I am currently playing GTA4 right now with the new patch and my VRAM is saying is detecting my graphics card 8gig GDDR5 RAM and I have the Radeon MSI OC Mecha 5700. Are your graphics card drivers been updated? Because AMD just release a new driver update yesterday.

GTA IV The Complete Edition now detects 1GB RAM instead of 512MB. The previous fix is no longer needed.

Typing "-availablevidmem 8192" in the launch options should resolve the issue.
