How come I can run Skyrim on Ultra, but I can't run GTA 4 on Medium?

That's what it says, and I literally can't change anything. It won't let me.


If you still can't change anything, go down to Auto Configure and click it. Also, do the "-norestrictions" thing. After that, you should be able to change whatever settings you want.

Did you try running an ENB? Those can mess up the settings and won't let you change them until you hit "Auto Configure".

Can you post a pic of what you did? I'm 100% sure the norestrictions thing should work

I will when I get home from work.

Local C/Steam/Steam Apps/Common/GTA 4/ GTA 4/Install

That's where I put it (IIRC)

There were two more folders in there that I can't remember the name.

You need a good quad-core CPU and a high-end GPU to play it properly because it's not optimized at all.

Other than taking forever to just start because of all the random crap I had to download.

How the crap can you not run everything on ultra/max at 1080P and not get 60fps on it? My friend who has this on PC can run the game fine on Med-high on a lot lesser system than yours and gets decent playable fps.

If I remember his specs correctly..

I7 920 2.8ghz
Nvidia 645 (1GB?) GPU
8GB of DDR3 RAM

Why do people bother with GTA4 when GTA BOGT and L&D are so much better?

Runs better looks better, better missions, checkpoints, better weapons, better driving vehicles, more fun etc etc

Then there is Saints Row 3 for the San Andreas lovers.
And Sleeping dogs for the true discerning sandbox PC gamer master race. I'm confounded by the magnitude of peasantry concerning GTA4, imho GTA4 needs to die in a fire, it was good for the time but it's aged terribly.

Big shoutout to Just Cause 2. Peace out.

You aren't even really reading my posts; you're just staring at your e-mail client and fondly reminiscing about that hobo you stabbed to death. :P
