Got this recently as well. I loved it.

I hope my saves transfer over. I heard there was a special way to transfer them. But I read that, after I reinstalled. I was about a tenth of the way through the game.

And I can't play online because GFWL is a POS and won't accept my xbox live account and when it finally did it gives me an error. I'm over it. SP is fun.

I would like to ask you a question...

I've been having a look at some texture mods in YouTube videos (just videos, nothing more) and they look really great... and I'm tempted to use one of those (for when I can build my desktop PC, that's it, but for now, I'm just doing my 'homework') but...

Do they modify the game or any of its libraries in any way? I mean... I use the game like it is... GFWL authentication and the like... so if I apply a texture mod like the GTA IV Ultimate Textures pack (v20 at the time of this reading), will it tamper with the user authentication or pose any problems for running the game in a normal fashion?

Another question coming into my mind is... does this apply just for the main game? or does it also apply for the 'Episodes from Liberty City' expansion?

(maybe I'm not even pointing at the right texture mod, I'm just looking for textures in the literal sense, I don't care about real cars or whatever, just... improving the game a bit with better textures, no custom UIs, no accelerometer, not anything fancy, just... a bit more quality).

The mods shouldn't affect GFWL and the ones I've tried are fine.

EFLC is an entirely separate game from GTA IV and needs to be modded separately.

The benchmark is locked at 67fps maximum whatever settings I choose with this HD6950, Very strange.
______________

If a "friend" invites me to an EFLC game I have to close GTAIV completely and log in again which is bull****.

The only way around that seems to be to buy EFLC again via GFWL...?

Was EFLC ever DLC on PC? Having both lots of the same data sitting on my HDD is ridonkulous.

If I didn't already buy EFLC last week or whenever would the pack have installed in one chunk and allowed me to switch games without logging in again?

At least my SP save games are intact after uninstalling the retail version.
