Hmmm, I figured there would be some sort of GTA IV Bashing in here

Guess not...

GTA IV is turning out to be THE worst port ever. Guys with Q6600 and 4 gb of ram coupled with SLi/Crossfire can't even get it above medium specs...not to mention right off the launch date Multiplayer is broken, you have to log into 3 different programs to play SINGLEPLAYER and some people are getting nabbed by glitches with their cards to where NO textures are getting displayed.

Anyone have GTA IV?

If you think thats bad, don't ever try to play Crysis. Computer would probly explode and burn down your house.

But seriously, GTA4 even locks up my 360 a lot. Damned game. I paid 60 bucks for it and cant even play it lol. Oh well, time to sell.

You just suck. I run Crysis, and Crysis Warhead flawlessly on my machine. You have more PC problems than I used to.

It's Ok, lockup or not, the game itself sucks worse than all the previous GTAs anyway!

You must not have played the original GTAs. The London one was wretched.

Can you max all settings and maintain a playable (35-40) FPS? Didn't think so. Cause thats what i judge a system by, not just the very fact that you can put the game in and get it to play. If that were the standard, then my current rig is good for about 11 more years...


Not to mention that i did't even list my rig's specifications...

Crysis is a joke at 1920x1200 Max, DX10 4xAA here..
Well not a Joke, but I don't have any issues running them smoothly (quad/4gb/sli'd 260's).

GTA IV on the other hand runs like ass on my machine even with the new beta drivers 180.84, which just so happened to break SLI in FC2 and Crysis

Well with a 4Ghz Q9650 and 2 gtx 280's in SLi, i really dont have a problem either. But it's still the most demanding for right now. GTA4 is nothing compared to it when it comes to resources needed to run it on the highest possible settings. And i mean with AA and AF maxed as well, not just pushing the "Very High" button and thinking you are the shit.

How did you get AA to work with GTA IV? From what i've read/seen GTAIV uses a rendering method where proper AA is impossible without DX10.
And since it doesn't support DX10, that pretty much leaves AA out the window.

Im afraid im not sure what you are talking about. I have vista, which is capable of running the latest dx. As for the AA and AF, i was still referring to Crysis. And i have never even tried to run GTA4 on a PC, i just know enough about the game (from the reviews i guess) to know that it doesn't compare to crysis in terms of the resources needed to run the game on the upper upper settings. Sure most people would consider both games to be demanding, but Crysis would fall into the very demanding category with respect to the topmost settings. So much so that i would guess that most are not even capable of running it on the lowest settings, much less the highest. Again just to clarify, thats with a respectable playable framerate, not just getting the game to load up play looking like hammered shit.

Crysis is an icredibly tough game to run. It ran fine for me using high settings, not very high or ultra. Common sense says don't run a game higherbthan your machine can handle. It's your own damn fault your tuning 11 fps. Either dump money intoba better upgrade, or tone the game down.

My bad I thought you meant GTA IV, basically the game doesn't support DX10 just DX9. And when I meant that AA doesn't work I meant it as they would have had to make the game run in DX10 to allow for AA to be used.

Someone feel free to correct me if i'm wrong, but based on what i've read and seen in interviews I think i'm spot on.

It would have to be a DX10 game for the nvidia drivers to be able to force AA. Since it's using a proprietary DX9 engine without any interfaces coded yet, it can't be forced, but since that's a standard for DX10 that would solve the problem.

Apparently the next patch solves the problems with AA and allows it to be initialized. Whenever that comes.
