  1. Hey guys, I am only a year 10 student and I have just built myself a new machine, I am aware that it may not be the best but will this run GTA IV?

    -Motherboard- Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2

    -CPU- AMD Athlon II X2 255(Dual Core) with a 2 mB chache and Clock speed of 3.1 Ghz

    -RAM- 1x2Gb Stick of DDRII

    -Video-(This is an onboard video Card as i am saving my money for my future card) ATI Radeon X2100(512mB)(IGP)

    And any suggestions on what a good choice of video card may be. Keeping in mind i do not have mega dollars too spend

    Thank you any help will be much appreciated

    i reckon a 5770 would go well. they're about $150-200. you can get a powercolor one for $167 from MSY. if you wanna spend more than that, the 5850 is around $350.

    Hey guys! I was just wondering if my graphics card is compatible with GTA IV? I've got an ATI Radeon 3450, well the packet says 3450 but CPUZ says its 3400. I don't know which one to believe :lol:

    I've all the requirements the game needs, just the graphics card I'm a bit concerned with

    well if the box says its 3450 then it is. CPU-Z probably just sees it as a 3400 series ATi.

  2. You should delete gta_vc.set in GTA VICE CITY USER FILES folder.

    I opened the gta vice city user files.... and the folder was empty o.0

    hmm thats weird...so this is the first time you installed GTA Vice City then.

    What Model number is your laptop, or better yet, just right click my computer, press properties. write here the CPU model/GHz (or MHz) and RAM. Then, right click your desktop and press properties, now press settings tab, and it'll say something in this format

    Monitor name on Video card

    Multiple Monitors on NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300

    for example thats what mine says :)

    Also tell us your Operating System and Service Pack for example Windows XP Service Pack 3, Vista Home Premium SP1 etc etc. thats also in the same window with your CPU and RAM information.

    I'd presume this isn't the issue but if we can rule this out, then it'll narrow down the problems.

  3. hmm i think we should have organised multiplayer sessions (have we been doing this already?) like for XBOX and PS3 and PC GTA4's

    and maybe MTA too, if we cant get our own server we should at least all go on a server at a specified time.

  4. hey guys

    can these requirements run GTA IV on my laptop :)

    and 1 more question i see alot of people speaking about cracks,patches,razor crack 1 razor crack 2

    i need one of you to tell me what exactly do i need. i just want to play offline

    and i know that i should install the latest update (what do you advice me to install which patch 1.0.5 , 1.0.6 or 1.0.7 cuz many people said there were problems in the last one ) from rockstar and replace razor crack 1 with the files in the game directory thats it anything more ???

    and sorry for my broken english :(

    well we wont be able to help you crack the game since its illegal and blablabla so yep.

    as for running the game, intel graphics are just shit for gaming. you could run san andreas but i highly doubt you'd be able to run gta4.

  5. sorry we cant do that here...

    if you messed up your files, just reinstall your GTA3. if you got mods and dont wanna reinstall , just reinstall that game, but put it in a folder called GTA_3, then find that american.gxt and copy to your folder.

  6. if reinstalling doesnt get rid of them, you're doing it wrong ;)

    go to

    c:\program files\rockstar games\grand theft auto vice city

    (or whereever you installed that)

    DELETE that entire folder. and then empty the recycle bin.

    now reset your computer.

    now get your CD out and install the game again, but this time instead of the default folder name like i wrote above, just call it GTA Vice City (as opposed to grand theft auto).

    this will put it in another folder, so will definitely not have anything left over from the original installation. if you've done all that, and its still the same either

    a) your install media (legal or not) is f**ked

    B) you didnt follow the steps right.

  7. the radio stations arent bad, but yeah as Mpilk said its impossible on PS3.

    thats one thing with XBOX, you can play music stored on it during games and it like cancels out the game sounds which is cool somewhat. til PS3 implements something like that and i want different sounds, il just use a headphone splitter XD

  8. Okay So I Was Editing Files In Aduacity And I Had Wanted To Make The Audio Louder So I Brought Up Realtek HD Audio Manager . I Really Don't Mess With Computers That Much , But I Pretty Sure I Did Something Bad . Cause From That Point On I Can Hear NOTHING From My Computer . I Even Tried Plugging In Earphones But I Still Can Not Hear Nothing . When I Bring Up Digital Output , There Is A Checkmark And I Before It Was Never There .

    On The Speakers Out Put There Is A Bar That You Can Select: Select Default Device, And Select Communication Device . On Digital Output I'm Not Able To Click On The Bar . And I Think That Is The Problem .

    So Can Anyone Help Me With This Please , Cause It Is Starting To Get On My Nerves Not Hearing Anything !

    Thanks In Return ^_^

    unless you're using HD sound output (through either HDMI, optical, or coax) the sound will be analog output. dont try and change it. there should be a option to change it back, if not you have two options

    1. uninstall and reinstall sound drivers (99.99% should work)

    2. system restore (MIGHT work)

    so its realtek hd obviously (its very common) but you need to find the exact model number, check Device Manager (run-> devmgmt.msc)

  9. they arent stealing your money you arent exactly forced to buy their games :P

    australia is really really bad for game prices. RRP of most new PS3 games...$120 aud.

    works out to $100 USD / 70 GB Pounds. really insane.

    or you can buy it on ebay for like ~$60 plus postage, works out to be like $70 AUD tops.

  10. If you're really that desparate to find out, you could've just ran it.

    You should be able to, but don't hold out high hopes for the video settings. Depends alot at what res you're planning to use, really.

    I'm not "desparate", and i just can't install ir 'till I finish downloading the game. I didn't meant to disturb you, i should erase that "aaaanyone" comment.

    Don't worry. You should most probably be able to run it. :)

    I'm done, my brand-new Radeon HD5770 vaporX just arrived, so now it should be running fine. I changed a little bit my configuration: Still the same processor, AMD Phenom II 965 X4 @3600, 4GB 1333 DDR3 ram and regular 7200rpm sata drives.

    I tried to open the game just after the driver instalation (after reboot) and the game just hangs in a black screen. I'm not even able to do alt+tab, nothing at all!

    Anyone knows what this is about? Thanx!

    hmm thats weird...

    try uninstall gta4, restart, reinstall, restart again, and try run it. if it still has issues, could be a driver problem but you said u just got the new ones so probably not that.

    so you have the same cpu, motherboard, ram, hard drive etc as you had when you installed the OS. if you change at least the CPU or motherboard, you should reinstall the OS (windows or w/ev) because it doesnt really like it. i think some issues with drivers may arise etc.

  11. cartoons now on channels like cartoon network and nickelodeon (and disney) are all...crap lol.

    the shows from like the 90s-early2000s were so good. now its all really bad. even the kids shows (little kids like preschool) are just retarded. though i remember seeing a youtube clip of a show i watched when i was like <5. so freaky lol.

    so, i dont really have a channel because the cartoons i watch now i usually download eg, family guy, simpsons, south park, american dad, cleveland show etc.

    if i was to choose from when i watched cartoons as a kid, probably nickelodeon.

  12. How about Creative Groups ?

    They will make up ideas,design mock-ups,etc. to improve TGTAP. And then they will submit them to the staff who will then approve/disapprove them based on how good the idea is. Maybe, this will even slightly lessen the work required to do by the staff.

    However, like gangs, they will not have private sub-forums. Instead, they will have a public forum, in which anyone and everyone can contribute and help. So, this will probably not contribute to the inactivity of TGTAP - like gangs did.

    So, does it make it ?

    or they could just make a "suggestion box"
