Default Re: GTA 4 Graphics tweak thread - Lets make this thing work FFS!

Sorry to bump an old thread. Just wanted to add my experience.

The game runs great for me. Just wish there was AA. I'd gladly go back to the stock medium texture in favor of a nice AA. Oh well, the game is totally playable for me. Check out the pics below. Especially the one where my video memory resources are well above recommended but a nice overclock of my gtx keeps my frame rates reasonable. I don't even have to OC my CPU for this game while I do for FarCry2 but I'm sure that's because farcry 2 is set at highest everything and with a very nice AA going on. Still while gta4 considers my settings above recommended, the game is very well playable and no frames are dropped. I finally got to a point in the game where it was raining -and while from reading this thread some people had issues with the game at that time -for me there is no hesitation at all. The game runs well.

It plays ok here, 30fps + but it's hard to get this game to run really smooth, I get stutters when driving faster. It's just not as smooth as it should be.

I've tried all of the tweaks as well and the latest NVIDIA driver is aweful, I've had to use 181.22 to stop it jerking and stuttering badly.

Fking aliasing. This is a great game, though. I was walking down the street, and two guys were fighting because one was stealing the other guy's car. I just waltzed right in, sat down, and sped away in front of a cop, turned the dial to the rasta station, and went to pick up Lil' J to go kill some drug dealers.

Indeed. That and the slow performance keeps me from buying.

If you were more active you wouldn't be so slow and lathargic and could get out and about to the shops and purchase the game.
