Looks like it's not using enough of your CPU for some reason. Make sure chipset drivers, bios, windows update, driectX, sound etc. drivers are all updated.

I did the commandline.txt tweak and now I play at max settings on my 4870 512 mb. I don't notice the game getting slower after gaming at max settings. WTF was rockstar thinking that a 512mb card cannot handle the high texture settings ??

noobs at rockstar :rolleyes:

Game plays smoothly at 1440x900

Sorry for the silly question, but I can't seem to find it.

I've done that and nothing.:ohwell: The only time I really need my draw distance set any higher is in a helicopter, even so the draw distance is still better than the console version. It's just the only place I'm limited, everything else is at it's highest.

I remember my commandline.txt not working, I really dont know why, but after i put them in a certain order, they started working. so if you wanna give a shot at it here's my commanline.txt, try it out.

-also you can try this:
go to
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\grand theft auto iv\GTAIV\

create shortcut to LaunchGTAIV.exe
add your command lines to this shortcut.
example:
"C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\grand theft auto iv\GTAIV\LaunchGTAIV.exe" -nomemrestrict -norestrictions -windowed -novblank -percentvidmem 100

now go to
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\grand theft auto iv\RGSC
run RGSCLauncher.exe, and log in

minimize it and start the game from your newly created shortcut.

Ok, so all you do is drop the commandline.txt file into the GTAIV folder? Why in the heck isn't it working for me?:banghead: I don't need to do it or anything, it's the principal of it all.:ohwell:

For all the guys running Quad's... i found out that running GTA IV with "-fullspecaudio" command in the commandline.txt increases performance, and also increases load on the CPU... on my system i gained 2-3 FPS by inserting that command in the txt file... Also increases load by additional 5%, at least on my rig...
