Is tHeRe a SOLUTION ?!!! :(

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
ok, i have a problem that's really really pissing me of.

i can play GTA4 at fps 28-32, for about 30 minutes like that, and after that, the frame rates will suddenly reduce to unplayable frame rates some times under 10 fps. so i have to restart the game to make things good again. This is quite pissing me off coz i have to restart the game like every 30 minutes to gain back those playable frame rates.
pls dont say my system is to low to handle the game, coz i relize that, and also i've already updated to the newest GTA4 Patch, installed catalyst 8.12 and Reducing the graphics options but all of this does not help at all(still same prob)...

The question is why is this happening ? AND IS THERE ANY SOLUTION ? Does anyone have similar problem as me ?

PLS HELP ! i just cant stand just staring at my copy of GTA4 without playing it !

This is probably one of the many crippling bugs have a bad effect on GTA4, but I think there was something in the news section earlier about a patch being released.

Make sure you don't have any programs running along with GTA 4. Also, make sure you turn off the replay feature to free up performance.

It's called a memory leak, and people are still suffering the problem even after the so-called "patch."

This is why I choose not to buy PC games.

Looking at a $50 paperweight would frustrate me too...

i think you will have to wait on a patch for a fix. Maybe try it on different graphics settings? not sure if that would do anything but worth a try
