Rockstar have released the second patch for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV, and it contains a lot of fixes. You'll be prompted to download the update next time you're signed in and playing the game on GFWL, though you can also head over to the GTA IV patch page and download and install it manually.

GRAPHICS FIXES / ADDITIONS:

  • Graphics Menu:
    • Added "Water Quality", "Shadow Quality" and "Reflection Resolution" sliders in graphics menu.
    • Added "Definition" and "VSync" toggles in graphics menu.
  • Rendering optimizations.
  • VSync optimizations.
  • Nvidia 7000 series
    • Mirrors fixed
PATCH 1 FIXES:
  • Direct input device support is now disabled by default and can only be enabled with the commandline: "-usedirectinput"
  • Supported Controllers:
    • Logitech Dual Action
    • Logitech RumblePad 2
    • Logitech Cordless RumblePad 2

  • Benchmark was disabling sounds after Patch 1 was applied, this is now fixed.
CRASH FIXES:
  • Unable to load game fixed - For some users, a DOS window would open and close immediately upon Game Launch, GTA IV would never launch.
  • Hang on Initial Game Loading Screen fixed - Some users experienced Character Art Loading screens in an endless loop.
  • Certain causes of the RESC10 error have been fixed (Alt-Tab, change resolution). If you experience an RESC10 error, you must restart.

MULTIPLAYER:
  • Legitimate players being kicked from Multiplayer matches has been fixed.

Not a chance. This patch just made my game worse, at one I am full of graphical corruptions, at two sometimes my GFX card refuses to render even if I have the textures at low, water at low, reflections at low...
I'm very disappointed with this patch.

Un lucky S-V but i think it will vary with everybody. I havent tried it yet since i have to reinstall it.

EDIT: Just gave it a go and i dont see much difference in my fps. But it has helped a few bugs.

Works on mine, although I have to add more RAM and some upgrades, since I'm running on Windows 7...

Unless you have a HD4870X2 or a GT200 based card you aren't suppossed to.

Try the nomemrestriction parameters.



Not applying this until I'm sure it works on my 'modified' version. As damned Rockstar won't let me activate mine (bought on vacation, doesn't activate in Europe. And I refuse to buy the legitly bought game twice).


Powermanagement might be what is making me get framedrops (like from 60fps to suddenly 15, during which my CPU almost idles).



Edit: Bundled with the game came some nice GTA IV lolipop girl poster, so I'm still actually happy I bought it.
