The cars show up depending on what your driving at the time (I once had a Tourismo and drove down a street with ten of them lined up), it doesn't seem to be just the car you've got either, having a particular car may mean you see lots of another type.

You can get a Tourismo from the nice house at the southernmost part of the first island (you get some missions there) and you might see more Banshees with it.

Yap. The memory saving trick that has become a core part of the gameplay. I don't think they could make another GTA without it. It's just GTA. ::

The patch is through GFW Live!, you apply it in the game, even in the steam version.

So I installed and play for about 30 minutes last night, here's what I think so far:

* The installation was the most painful and longest game installation I have ever experienced in my life. GFW+XBL+Social Club+SecuROM (whatever it is) = PITA!!!! Why do I have to log into SC first and then be able to play the game? GAY!!!!!!!!!

* Graphics are better than the 360 right off the bat. It just needs AA/AF like the 360 version.

* My cheapo Logitech controller I just bought got picked up by the game and works perfectly, no remapping controls FTW!!!

* Performance is ok. I dropped the res down to 1280x1024 and it made no difference whatsoever. Kinda funny. And for some reason, I can't put it on High textures . . .

Turn "P" so you will have "aa like on xbox 360" AF on Xbox? Never heard of. Set your render quality on highest and AF in drivers for control by game and it will look like on AFx16.

BTW I play on 1650x1080 cause I got better performance than on lower resolutions.

Turn P? WTF?

I've seen about the -norestrictions attribute but where do I put that? Which files/exe?

Just hit the "P" key in-game and it turns on the blur and depth of field effects the consoles used to make you think they had AA.

Also, he's right, the 360 version has no AF, or very little, and the PC actually has a lot of AF.
