Excellent game :)

I installed this game (absolutely no errors, no warnings, no crc errors etc). It got installed like a piece of cake. I just entered the serial key and played the game.

In a pirated game, you can't update game patches, no multi player, no social activities, no video upload and so on. So, you will miss many fixes and that sucks. Today when I tried this real version, I could see many improvements in performance and quality vice too.

Around 10 years back, I bought (game chip) mario game for 150 rupees and now I bought this licensed GTA IV for 450. I think this is dead cheap when compared to that unlicensed mario chip 10 years back .

Things inside this pack :
1. Two game DVDs.
2. A game guide.
3. Survival guide to liberty city.
4. A big poster (lolly pop girl in-front and GTA IV map in the back)

If you really love this game and if you want to play with latest patches, you need to get this one for 374 (no extra charge) :)

Hardware Requirements

Dear Manish,

The problem in your system is the graphics card. A 8400 GS is an obsolete card & hence you face probs when playing in high resolution.
First of all update your graphics drivers for existing card & still if you face the issues, upgrade the card to DDR5 one giving higher fps. In games, GPU matters more than CPU.

Tips for better performance.

Hi All,

I have been playing this game for quite a while now few things i have noticed why the game lags performance and some tips to boost the performance.

My current laptop config is

Sony vaio:- with i3 2nd gen @ 2.26 GHz*1 (Overclocked @ 2.46 GHz)

Graphics Accelerator:- ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 5145 Graphics

Ram 6 GB DDR3 Tanscend @ 1066 MHz(Planning to push further with 8 gigs :D )

Windows 7 ULTIMATE SP1

HD display @720 p and 1080 p via HDMI on Bravia

Now here is the crack for the lag:-

Lets first clear the basics

1) While playing the game disable ANITVIRUS as it is always running in the background and consuming memory.
2) Run disk defragmentaion specially where the game is installed.
3) Stop unneeded background services and process from task manager.
4) Before playing the game set up the computer for best performance (Disable all the fancy stuff and themes)
5) Increase the page memory.
6) Clear temp files.
7) Remove memory bugging wallpaper( Set as basic 'PLAIN wallpaper' )
8) Download an application "Game Booster" this WORKS!! and is awesome + its Free on the internet.
9) Update display drivers.
10) Update RAM(check if your machine allows you to do that with reference to processor and motherboard.)
11) Play the game on external power.
12) Create an image of DVD and mount it rather playing it on the drive.

Now, let's move to Advanced level computer tuning.
NOTE:- If you dont know about computer Abcd do not try the below steps, try at your risk.

1) Overclocking :- Overclocking is best done in the computer’s BIOS (Basic Input/Output System or Binary Integrated Operating System). There are also some motherboards that let you do a basic increase in power by setting a jumper, but this is dangerous and you have no real stability control. There are some software programs available which allow you to overclock inside the operating system, but the best results are achieved by changing BIOS settings. Usually you can get into your BIOS by pressing DEL (some systems may use F2, F10, or Ctrl-Enter) as soon as your computer begins the POST (Power On Self Test - when it shows the RAM size, processor speed, etc.). Here, you can change your FSB (front side bus), memory timings, and your CPU multiplier (also referred to as CPU Clock Ratio)

2) Rockstar games has provided fixe for the memory leak issues in GTA IV. To use them create a notepad document called commandline.txt in your GTA IV folder and include one of the following commands

-memrestrict 188743680 LOW TEXTURES (256M Video Cards)
-memrestrict 209715200
-memrestrict 230686720
-memrestrict 262144000 MED TEXTURES (512M Video Cards)
-memrestrict 293601280
-memrestrict 314572800
-memrestrict 629145600 HIGH TEXTURES (1Gig+ Video Cards)
-memrestrict 650117120
-memrestrict 681574400

Start with the lowest for your current texture settings and figure out what works best.

3) Play around with the settings, but when running benchmarks take note of CPU usage because GTA IV is a highly CPU intensive game, do anything you can to reduce CPU usage if you wish to increase performance.

With above and few more changes i have been playing this game and it works well.
There is no performance lag.

But make sure WHEN OVECLOCKING GRAPHIC CARD/RAM/PROCESSOR get a cooloing pad(for laptop) as it produces heat and when i say heat i mean "HEAT"(gets pretty hot)

Overall, GTA 4 is a nice game completed gta4 EFLC an year back.
now got time to play again and this time its plain gta4 @ 350-400 Rs (Cheap)
All thanks to flipkart.

Its a Steal...... Dont think...Just Go for it ....

GTA4 at such a low price. OMG.
The moment I saw the title in my Suggestion list, I ordered it.
After all its a 16Gb Game with so much to enjoy.
The package also contains some goodies like:
1.Survival Guide to Liberty City
2.A Magazine on Liberty City
3.A Jumbo Liberty city map with Lollipop Girl Poster behind it.

Online Gameplay is really awesome. Very Impressed with the In Game Video Editor that on PC users get.

Running with lags as this graphics card is not enough.
