~GTA4 issues~

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
alright well, I got gta4 per a friends recommendation and so far I have to say I am impressed with rockstar games for this GTA. The graphics are really good and the physics in the game are sureal from what I am used to.

The issue is. I have the Geforce gtx 460 SE card. Which should more than handle this game easily. But its not. the framerate it ok. It hovers in the upper 50's regularly but has random sudden drops to the low 20's and 30's then goes back up to normal.

Also When flying a helicopter, after flying for a while, mainly when I get close to an airport, the game shuts down and I get a Fatal Error: resc10 message.

What is this? Whats going on? I mean I know that this game is demanding but theres no way that it should slow down my 460 the way it does. Anyone have any info or input? please!

What is your processor? As you know everything loads instantly in GTA4, and those large maps take their toll on your processor. This game is very demanding and requires a lot more than the reccomended specs to run well. Have you downloaded the latest patch? That should help a bit with frame rate issues.

i am running a retail copy of the game i got last night. No, I did not get the latest patch. Ill look for that. My processore is the phenom ll x4 955BE. Is it really a bottleneck for the gpu? I will be overclocking it once I get my RMA'd ram back from corsair. I assume that overclocking will help with the bottleneck correct?

Also, Im going to try and reseat the card in the pci slot as well as re-install drivers. However, I cannot get driversweeper to run. When I go to open it it starts then I get error message that says requires elevation or something like that. Anyone know why I can;t get driver sweeper to run either?

Yes download the latest patch. I had the same problem. I took the game back to the shop complaining that my specs were above the required specs. They said that my graphics card was capable, but my processor was weak. You should also know that GTA4 is poorly optimised for the PC.

ok, ill download the latest patch and see what happens.

but another question I had is about this rockstar social club. I went ahead and downloaded the latest patch and it said that it would remove the social club because it is no longer necessary to play the game blah blah blah. But after that, the game did not want to run at all. It would give me that little loading cursor for the mouse but nothing at all after that.
