You would not believe the speed increase I gained from this. The game has no lag issues. I stay at 30 fps min, and never have any stutter, never have any vanishing items.

The glitch is confirmed, it is there in the PC version also
one minute video, shouldn’t harm anyone to wait one minute.
for the record I have
amd2 5600 dual core
Nvidia 9500 gt 512 mb
4 gigs of Ballistix pc6400 ddr2 memory
Windows Vista Service pack 1
22 frames per second looks like that.
The pop ins didn’t happen until I converted the game.
Strange how that worked.
Anyhow I found where everyone went on the xbox 360 version and the playstation 3 version of the game, and decided I would drive there in a Banshee. I mean why not, it’s a fricken Banshee!!!
The swingset shreds that car fast.
The gang at GTAFORUMS.Com Have been working hard to keep the forums under control and prevent the angry few from destroying the place and Grand Theft Auto’s good name. For the most of us, we got the game working just fine. A few people here and there had bad issues with Grand Theft Auto iv. The fourth installment of GTA. A large amount of people complain about bad frame rates aka FPS (means Frames per seconds). But the worst issue is missing textures and or cars not showing damage. The cars not showing damage typically happens to people using ATI brand Video cards. The missing textures happens to people using Nvidia video cards. The slow frame rate, well it leaves no one out.
From a Member of Rockstar’s Torronto group, we received a warm comfort of support
Here is the original post His name is Rockstar Toronto lol
We’ve been reading the forums and understand that several of you are experiencing difficulties with Grand Theft Auto IV PC, and we are committed to doing everything we can to help resolve these troubles. We are working on a number of solutions, outlined below, and over the next few days we will be responding to questions posed on this forum in an effort to get your game up and running as quickly as possible. Please continue to check the list below for updates.
We�re pleased to announce that in co-operation with Nvidia a new driver has been released that improves performance and fixes a major issue with 7900 series cards. If you haven�t gotten the driver yet download it here: http://www.nzone.com/object/nzone_gtaiv_downloads.html
ATI has also agreed to officially release Catalyst 8.12 which will release on Dec 10th from http://game.amd.com. Expect significant performance improvements when using this new driver.
Patch Is On The Way
We are working on making a patch available in the next few days. Since Grand Theft Auto IV is a Games For Windows � Live game the patch must be certified by Microsoft before release. The patch is already at Microsoft and we expect a speedy approval.
The patch contains a variety of fixes including:
-A fix to the crash after legal screen that some German customers were reporting.
-Numerous improvements to the video editor: Smarter naming of videos, improved rendering quality, better fx during replays
-Fix to bowling while using certain sensitive mice
-Fix for ATI 1900 shadows
-Overall savings to memory
-Graphic improvements to particle systems and mirrors
-Multiplayer character settings are preserved
-Support for DirectInput controllers. Note: The current hack way of supporting these controllers may not work with the improved functionality. So we recommend you remove the hack before upgrading to the patch.
Issues with power management software have also been fixed (slow speed, double speed issues). Even after the patch comes out setting power management software to maximum performance is recommended. We’ve seen cases where power management software does not detect the game is running and puts the CPU in green mode.
Besides the patch we’ve also improved the way the Social Club handles data this should have greatly reduced or eliminated the Mma10 error. If you are still receiving this error after logging in and out of Social Club we would like to know as much info as you can about it.
Information Needed For Troubleshooting
We want everyone to experience Grand Theft Auto IV on the PC the way it was intended. To that end, we will continue to monitor the forums for any and all issues users are having, and respond whenever possible. We would greatly appreciate it if people with unresolved problems could post some information about their PC configuration in this thread for us. Please include the following information:
-Where exactly in the game you experienced the issue (start screen, while playing the game, etc.)
-What version of the game you have (retail, steam, other online store)
-What is your OS
-Benchmark info or DxDiag is also helpful
Rockstar Games Social Club Application Info
Due to the high volume of new Social Club users, some users may have experienced periods of time where they are unable to log into their Social Club account using the Rockstar Games Social Club application. If you are unable to log in using the Rockstar Games Social Club application, please skip the login process by clicking “Skip Login” or run in offline mode by clicking “Start in Offline Mode”. This is meant as a temporary solution to allow users to play GTA IV PC, so please continue to periodically retry your login as we are working hard to promptly address any lapses in service.
A small number of users have reported the Rockstar Games Social Club application encountering a fatal error, preventing them from playing GTA IV PC. One possible solution is to uninstall the .NET Framework (from Add/Remove Programs) and reinstall it by downloading it from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details…&displaylang=en. If you continue to run into fatal errors in the Rockstar Games Social Club application, please contact Rockstar Games support.
Thank you for your patience as we continue to work around the clock to resolve these issues. Support updates will continue to be posted at www.rockstargames.com/support as soon as they are available, and we will update this thread with any new information as well. Please send any inquiries about non-support issues to firstname.lastname@example.org.
UPDATE – Since this thread is already getting so long we are asking everyone to post in this newly setup forum:
This way we can better keep track of issues and have things be better organized.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am not blaming people for their gaming discomforts. Really though, the majority of people having issues had mismatched components. Wrong voltage on of processor, cards that where better for a later version of PCI Express slot. Memory sticks that performed at a higher rate than the processors max. Some where just people who are brand new to overclocking to play a game that will stress all video cards. Really you do not want that much stress on an overclocked card/processor.
A few people found redemption in blackviper’s site, and others found the new 180.84 drivers to work fine. the trick was, uninstall current drivers, install new one, and delete settings file. Bif boom Bam , brand new again.
There is much hope in the patch. They are waiting on Microsoft to verify the patch. Microsoft works at it’s own pace. I see it no sooner than the 20th. I do however hope the patch adds features.

Well as the hype mule (I would say train but it really doesn’t feel like a train) starts I came across this from 1up. They have apparently had a bit of a quickie on GTA 4 mp for the PC :-
Nothing earth shatteringly new, obviously mentioned that it has 32 players instead of 16. They also seem to be of the opinion that the mouse and keyboard improves MP (well what a shock eh boys and girls). All in all an interesting read if you are board and want some more information. There is also eight new screenshots there, well I haven’t seen them :-
When you guys are ready, come to gtaclans.com and join the online battle already in progress.
Rockstar Uk invited a few people from variouse websites to come demo the game. GTa4.net thinks it will be weeks before we see anything. I have seriouse doubts. If I undrstand Rockstar, they will release Video footage and screen shots probably the day of the “Meeting” . I am pretty sure that the very second These people enter the building, flicker accounts will be seeing images, and twitter and jaiku will get bombarded with text snippets.
Then again, not everyone plans to be usefull for everyone else around them.
Here is what I got, pay close attention there are two links in taht post.

Specs to be:
- Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon 64 X2 (from 5000 +)
- Grafikkarte mit mindestens 512 MB Speicher. – Graphics card with at least 512 MB of memory. Mit allen Details der höchsten Qualität ab der 8800 GT bzw. HD 3870 spielbar. With all the details of the highest quality from the 8800 GT and HD 3870 playable.
- 1 GB RAM bzw. 2 GB unter Vista – 1 GB of RAM and 2 GB under Vista
Looks like the game is gonna weigh quite a bit on the pc.
The updates seem heavier now.
Someone posted the image of the pcgamer magazine that suposedly came out in july. It has the picture of niko belic on the cover. I did my research and found that pcgamer.com does not exist but pcgamer.com/my does. it is a two week old website.
on the site they claim to have their hands on a Malaysian pc game magazine that has news about gtaiv on pc “coming soon”
The fake print out is shrink wrapped to look like it is official.
There are many factors here to look at. One it’s a country where not every speaks english but the magazine is in english. two it’s the end of july and we are just now seeing the july issue?.. I’m sorry but the gtaiv for pc crowd, would have dug this up and it would have hit digg.com instantly.
here is the crappy gfake magazine cover .
I deem this fake.
here is how it should look.
Looks like another fat face is trying to get his “old people points” up higher by bashing GTA as soon as he can.
Remember, You have a choice in how you play the game. The game does not force you to be with hooker or kill innocent people or steal random stuff. All of that stuff you do on your own. So if they did sick stuff when they played. lol. Then maybe it’s their sick twisted minds that made them do it.
I got this from here I have no idea what these people are saying, so here is what I have to say.
This guy makes my stomach turn, you can see it in his face that he is milking the attention and couldn’t give two squirts what your kid or his own kid do or does. His eyes glisten with excitement each time he says gta. You can almost hear his heart beating faster and louder each time he thinks he sounds like he is meaning what he is saying. Something about how he had to brag about d.o.s. ing a server by excessive bandwidth due to him putting Miley Ray Cyrus on a server somewhere. Did he not know that he is showing off a minor?
at 45 seconds into the video he says ” We are training our kids to be Killers” . Um who is we? Does this guy have kids? he just said that he is one of a group of people who are training their kids to be killers. He then goes on to say ” and we are training our sons to treat women like whores” I dunno about this guy’s kid, but my son loves women, women love him, what ever he is doing, works. The guy goes on to say “and here’s how I got there.” See? he just said that he does all that and this is how HE achieved this emotional goal to corrupt his kid(s). Maybe it is by deceptive methods of persuasion . Maybe it’s by force. I don’t know.
I didn’t listen to it anymore I was sickened by his twisted mentality, and he seaped of demonic deviance I had to turn it off.
Some how he reminds me of Robert Tilton the evangelist who tells people they need to donate money so they can get into heaven.
If you know who this guy is or what network he is on, can you bother to have him interviewed unskitted unscripted?
Something freaks me out about this guy.
” Earlier today we broke the news that some Grand Theft Auto IV gamers were having problems with the game on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
“For them, the game was freezing up during the introductory cut-scene, something that neither I nor Mike experienced during our time with the game on both systems. To be clear, we have no idea how widespread the problem is, but it’s certainly on Rockstar’s radar and making the rounds both in our tips line and on forums.
“Rockstar declined to comment on the issue officially, so I went to the phone and called up Rockstar Support to see what they had to say about the problem.”
I am certain that Rockstar games will fix this issue. Not to bash the gaming site that seems to have “broken the news.”
But really. This is taking words out of text.
