GTAIV Horrible FPS on HD4870 - Page 6

I once made that mistake on a HD4550, and then even NFSU2 ran like ass on that card.

My point is, sure; the HD4550 is no purebred gaming card, but NFSU2 is old, and if my X1300PRO can max it out then surely the HD4550 can do it.

See where I'm coming from?

Also, overclock some. It will definitely help out with the frames more once you get the DX version switched to 9.

Edit: Also fill in your system specs under User CP. It can help us out on finding out what's up hardware wise.
Thanks, I'll check this right now.

Not to bad, so far. I set everything in CCC to Performance or High Performance, and ingame I've seen around a 10FPS increase

So I hit "auto configure" and played on it for a while, and it definitely seems smoother. Fraps is showing around 30+, with most things on 1280x1024, Medium, 4x AA, view distance @ 25, etc.

I'll play around with the settings to see if I can get it to play better. At least I'm back @ square one with some minor improvements.

Just wondering if anyone can help me find the files needed to edit to switch back to DX9. If that dosen't work, then I'll just reinstall XP.

Thanks!

It is your GPU. I have a 5830 and i can't play this game smoothly. GTA IV is the most Nvidia friendly game ever...

You know, I was thinking the same thing. I'm going to try a GTS250 tonight.

Anyone have any suggestions on what drivers to use for best performance?

I had the exact same problem with shadows, and it never went away. Til I got the 460 that is.
Pretty much this.

Also the first GTAIV was pretty poorly developed. I remember having TONS of problems trying to play that game.
However Episodes from Liberty City was a huge improvement graphically and technically. Much more playable.

dx10 is alot more demanding vs. dx9, thats what is happening with your system, there is nothing wrong with anything on your rig, its just that you now have DX10 which is a zillion time more prettier than DX9, but is alot more demanding hardware wise, this is why everyone is telling you that its your CPU, because it is true with DX10, even a better graphic card is needed ...

DX11 --> Even more than DX10
DX10 --> Alot better graphics hence needs more requirements...
DX9 --> Graphics are not that good at all therefore you dont need much to play it higher fps...

i wouldnt suggest you install WinXP cuz you will realize how bad the graphic are with DX9 , I had the same thing happening to me with Crysis DX9 and DX10

I wish I had DX11 by now, cant wait!

TBH, I had no problems with DX9. Infact, I am yet to see a difference that "wows" me. So far, all I get is choppy gameplay on DX10, so obviously on my end, it's no good.

Any ideas on how to get DX9 to play on Windows 7 for GTAIV? I heard you had to edit something...
