You really don't know much about Fraps recording do you? Fraps records uncompresses video, it can create 1GB file in under a minute (or faster depends on res). Plus Fraps creates quite a big strain on CPU and memory.

Just because you can't make it run well, don't make it sound like it runs bad for everyone. If you compare the resolution and settings that most people play here with are atleast 2-4x times higher then those on console.

Oh my god, I can't get the ****ing game to work after the patch. Atleast before I patched, I would get to the title screen. Now it just crashes with a TEXP70 error, despite that I've updated both DirectX and installed nVIDIA BETA drivers.

Trying to get this game to work for nearly 6hours but no avail.

Time to reinstall and see if that helps...

Unable to create depth render target - Please re-install DirectX and/or install the latest video card driver.
there might be something wrong either either the driver or directx. maybe reinstall the driver? have you tried 181.00? remove old version before installing the new one.

180.84 dont work right. The only set that does is the ones on nzone.com under GTA IV recommended which were 180.84 rev 1. The links on Nvidia.com are to the rev 3 which crash as soon as you start a 3d app. So make sure you arent using the 180.84 from nvidia.com. Or try 181.00, 180.60, 180.48 - any other driver is ok.

Reinstalled GTA IV. Installed 181 drivers. Updated GFW and GTA from within the game (used the manual update last time) even signed up for the Rockstar social club **** and logged in. But the game crashes as soon as the Rockstar logo should appear. The same TEXP70 error, clicking okay gives the standard "GTA 4 has stopped responding" message.

What a brilliant piece of code this game is.

Waste of money since I can't play anyway.
