Grand Theft Auto 4 (GTA 4) Discussion
Actually viewdistance and detail set to 90 will run ok (around 40fps) even on a system with dual 9600gt and 4gb of DDR2 ram.
Well, this is strange, since the game req's 1gb+ of texture mem to run on high details with a view and detail distance over about 40.
The game gives me a CTD when trying to run on any settings close to or above the mem limit. (Also running Vista, so those damn WDDM memory settings could be the issue, but I doubt it, since those are meant to increase the amount of memory usable by any graphical application.)
FYI, I'm running a GTX280 with 1024mb GDDR3, 4gb PC8500 DDR2, if the game can't run well on that on at least moderately high settings it's not quite well optimized, to be honest.
Bah, I'm gonna give R* some time to get out a proper patch, then I'll fight them with teeth and claws to at least get my money back for selling a de facto defective product. (i.e. a product which doesn't meet the specifications supplied by the manufacturer.)
An end-user shouldn't have to try 5 different drivers, shortcut commands, .ini-file tweaking (all these in vain, as they don't help out a bit) to get a game working.
also nvidia just released new beta drivers designed just for gtaiv heres the link www.nzone.com/object/nzone_gtaiv_downloads.html

It might not be totally random or so I thought only because at first it was only happening when I got my cars stuck on fences at odd angles and I exited the car it would then freeze up and crash. But about an hour ago I started the first playboy x mission and was using the elevator to get to the top of the building to snipe the 3 watchers and it crashed halfway up also it just crashed on me again and all I did was start the game up exited my safe house and stole a car and right as i sped around a corner on the same street of the safe house it locked up and CTD on me so I started the game again and then it wouldn't even load it was at the loading screen with the portraits (normally I reboot the pc after it CTD cause it never works right after a CTD unless I do)
Anyhow heres the link to the steam thread it really did help I get pretty good fps now has to be at least 55 or so cause the game runs flawlessly till it locks up.
Well now that I think about it the only diffrence I made last night was I over clocked my cpu from 2.6 to 3.1 so I'll try backing it back down and see if it works any better.
