Downgrading GTA IV? (Solved)


Gardee568

Recommended Posts

I want to install some mods for single player but the recent update is preventing me from doing so. I have tried the Zolika Patch downgrader but I had no luck running the game with it. Is there any other way to downgrade GTA IV to version 1.0.7.0?

Edit 10/28/20: Success! GTA 4 has been downgraded!

Check if you have Visual C++ 2005 SP1 x86, check if Games for Windows Live is installed. If that doesn't help, try using XLiveLess , but you will lose multiplayer. Just making sure you know: ZolikaPatch in itself is not a downgrade, although he offers a downgrade here.

Alternatively, you can also use my downgrader, but you will have to patch your game up to 1.0.7.0 manually and get it to run yourself. If you want a fast start, use Zolika's downgrade.

If I download Xliveless, do I need to download gfwl?

I tried the steam downgrader guide but there is no luck running it again, even with Xlive, Did i do anything wrong?

Any errors? Make sure to try without any mods if you have any.

After you downgrade to any version, make sure to also use the Radio Downgrader (specifically the old one/linked in Zolika's guide) or you'll have problems in Singleplayer.

Alright I won't forget that, thanks

Actually use it before downgrading the game, or you'll have to change the episodes folder structure to do it.

Turns out I was using another version of xliveless, But now it works! Thanks! But prior to this I had saves already, is there anyway I could transfer them to this version?

Yes, you'd just need to find where your old saves are, copy them to the new spot, it should probably work. I unfortunately don't know the details, it depends on the xliveless scripts used.

I successfully downgraded the game however I'm getting texture floor loss here: https://steamcommunity.com/id/Fallasa568/images/

I can't increase my vram higher than 2047 even though I have a 6gb card?

You usually do not need that much VRAM for GTA IV, try lowering the available video memory by using -availablevidmem 0.9 or slightly lower to what you already set it to. Alternatively, use ZolikaPatch and enable the VRAM fix in it. -- Also, your community screenshots seem to be set to private/friends-only.

Yeah, just attempt what I said, if that doesn't work, your game might just be funked.

Alright I will try your fix
