Troubleshooting

Q: My game is crashing.

A: Delete hints.dat from your GTAIV folder or alternatively re-download the dll and replace your old one.

Q: My Antivirus/web browser marks this file as a virus, what do I do?

A: It's common for an Antivirus or Web Browser to mark certain system files as a virus and since dinput8.dll is a system file which gets loaded by the game, most antiviruses will detect it since it's not signed, hence why I have provided the source code if you want to read the code and compile this yourself.

Q: What does this do?

A: I pretty much just hook GetMaxAvailableVideoMemory (not an actual name, I named this myself) which returns the max available video ram in GTA IV and modify it to return something else. I also create a hook to Direct3DCreate9 to get the D3D device the host application creates and figure out the amount of available VRAM by creating a dummy DXGI adapter.

Q: How do I run this on Proton/Linux?

A: To run on Proton/Linux simply add WINEDLLOVERRIDES="dinput8=n,b" %command% as a launch option. Thanks to @Managor

Restore Removed Music

Over 50 radio station tracks were removed from the game due to expired licenses in 2018.[10]
Downgrading isn't required to install this mod.
Downgrading the Radio Stations[11]
  1. Download the downgrader.
  2. Unpack to the installation folder.
  3. Run install.bat.

Notes

If GTA IV was downgraded to Patch 4, don't extract and replace the "common" folder, as doing so will mess up all text in-game.

Run EFLC as DLCs

Merges songs from EFLC into the base game.
Does not work with versions older than Patch 6.

Issues fixed

Game uses Games for Windows - LIVE. Make sure you are running latest version and refer to the concerning page if you have further problems.

Release Date Check Failure

Change Windows Date to any date before 28 June 2015[citation needed]

Error WS10

Install the updated Games for Windows Marketplace Client[citation needed]

SecuLauncher: failed to start application. [2000] error

Fatal error WTV190

Reinstall GFWL client[citation needed]

Fatal error WTV270

Fatal error RMN20

Run game in compatibility mode[citation needed]
  1. Go to the installation folder.
  2. Right click on GTAIV.exe and enter its properties screen.
  3. Under the compatibility tab, set the compatibility mode to Windows Vista (Service Pack 2) and click OK.
If using Windows 7, Vista or XP, update your Windows to the latest available service pack[21]

Game stuck at disclaimer screen or Rockstar logo on Windows 10

Disable fullscreen optimization[22]
  1. Go to the installation folder.
  2. Right click on GTAIV.exe and enter its properties screen.
  3. Under the compatibility tab, tick Disable fullscreen optimizations and click OK.

Large framerate drops on diverse parts of the city

Lower view distance to 20 or lower. Anything higher causes high drops in peformance impact when looking at the skyline for very little visual gain.
You may also increase your peformance significantly while minimizing pop-in and graphical glitches by keeping distance detail between 10 and 40.
If you are after very high framerates (144 FPS) and above disable shadows as they use a lot of cpu power and reduce vehicle density to around 40, (33 is the console default if you want a "vanilla experience"

Texture popping, stuttering and other performance issues after running the game for a while

Force maximum available memory[24]
  1. Create a file named commandline.txt in your root installation folder.
  2. Depending on your texture quality, enter one of the following codes in to the newly created file:
    • Low textures (256 MB VRAM): -memrestrict 230686720
    • Medium textures (512 MB VRAM): -memrestrict 314572800
    • High textures (1 GB+ VRAM): -memrestrict 681574400
  3. Save the file and launch the game.
-reservedApp 0 is also worth a try for a 64-bit OS.[23]
Keep in mind that the use of High Textures is not recommended for 32-bit Vista/7 or newer.[23]
Forcing available memory with Patch 8 is not recommended as it will make the game unstable.
Make sure Steam Overlay is enabled[25][citation needed]

No recoil/bullet spread

By default, recoil/bullet spread is only enabled when playing with a controller. This results in 100% shooting accuracy when using a keyboard and mouse.
Install the Bullet Spread/Recoil Fix script[27]
Not recommended to use in Multiplayer.
Requires an ASI Loader.

Regular camera movement and handbrake camera are too slow

This bug occurs if the frame rate is very high.

Cutscenes are too zoomed in

This bug occurs if the frame rate is very high.

Game minimizes after clicking start

If the game minimizes after selecting between GTA IV base and EFLC and can not be made full screen again it may be a problem with PunkBuster. It can be fixed by stopping it from running.
Stop PunkBuster[citation needed]
  1. Press Ctrl+ Shift+Esc.
  2. Click PnkBstrA.exe in Processes.
  3. Click End task to stop it from running.

Game will load with minimal graphic settings and won't let you change them

For video cards that have more than 2 GB or VRAM the game will run but won't let you change the graphics settings to anything better. In order to force the game to allow the changes, load the .exe with the extra parameter: -norestrictions.
Bypass graphics restrictions on Steam version[citation needed]
  1. Open your Steam library.
  2. Right-click on Grand Theft Auto IV and select Properties.
  3. Press the Set Launch Options... button.
  4. Enter -norestrictions into the text field, press OK.
  5. Start the game.
Bypass graphics restrictions on other versions[citation needed]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>.
  2. Create a new text file in this folder and name it commandline.txt.
  3. Open it and add the string -norestrictions to it.
  4. Save the file.
  5. Start the game.

Infinite loading loop

Launch the game with -availablevidmem 0.9 -percentvidmem 100 parameter[30][31]

AMD/ATI Radeon Water Fix

There is a problem where the water loses its features and details after a while. To fix this issue do this:
Replace the water shaders[citation needed]
  1. Download the fixed waterTex shader file.
  2. Go to <path-to-game>\GTAIV
  3. Go to common\shaders\win32_30_atidx10\
  4. Place your downloaded waterTex.fxc shader file and replace the original.
  5. Go to common\shaders\win32_30_low_ati\
  6. Place your downloaded waterTex.fxc shader file and replace the original.

  2. Go to the installation folder.
  3. Drag and drop the files into common\data\ in <path-to-game>.

2GB+ VRAM is wrongly recognized

Force increase video memory[32]
  1. Open <path-to-game>\commandline.txt (create if it doesn't exist).
  2. Put -availablevidmem 2 in a new line (or replace 2 with other number, it's a multiplier of already detected Vram by GTA IV engine).

Multiplayer: Login to Social Club failed

This was fixed with Patch 8.
Override paul.dll[citation needed]
  1. Rename <path-to-game>/paul.dll to paul.dll_old.
  2. Restart the game. It should load up directly.
  • You must have completed GFWL setup first, then you can take this shortcut.

Frame rate drops after a short time in game (e.g. smooth 60 FPS to a choppy 45 FPS)

Launch game via LaunchGTAIV.exe
