  1. Bring the minigun and M60 back.
  2. I think they started spelling the name correctly, and things sorta took off from there.
  3. Will 550W be sufficient to run an HD 4870, 2 120MM fans, and everything else?
  4. It's possible you just got a faulty copy, I don't know. I've got faulty stuff from Steam which wouldn't install and had to re-purchase the game. Maybe a crack would be in order, if the game [that you purchased] isn't letting you play...the game.
  5. Right click on the GTA icon, go to properties, click the "compatibility" tab, see if there is anything checked that says "run this program as administrator", and uncheck it.
  6. Heres some of what the people said. "You need to install the Visual C++ 2005 redistributable. " "I had the same problem so i emailed securom, they sent a reply saying that the error means that the gta4 exec has been changed in some way. So i did a reinstall and same prob but noticed i had the shield symbol on the gta icon (run this program as administrator) dont know why that was ticked under compatability via properties. Unticked and finally worked." "Install all the exe's and the one msi file that is in your first DvD (DvDDRIVE:\GTAIV\Redistributable\*.exe) This SHOULD get rid of that issue." "It is in your DvD. Right click -> open. to access the dvd instead of autorun. The address is given above. I hope you know what letter is ur dvd drive in." Hope this was helpful..
  7. you know, typing the error into google got me atleast 10 answers to the problem. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=S...mp;aq=f&oq=
  8. Fuck, something just hit me, guys. My Mobo will be SLI, and I've chosen an ATi card...I guess I'm going to have to change to Nvidia. I almost have about 620 dollars which is enough for a computer + monitor. My GPU price range is 280. Should I get a GTX 260 or a 9800GT or something else? I have no idea about Nvidia cards...I guess I better research
  9. Her 6 fingers on her lolipop hand still freak me out.
  10. I know in VC there was a mod to make the replay times 2 minutes.
  11. Very good. Mostly medium settings, some on high.
  12. The problem with the pirated versions will probably be fixed by some code wizard. Personally, I'll pirate a game, and if I like it, I'll buy the factory copy.
  13. That's strange, I have the same video card as you, yet yours has 1GB of video memory. I'm afraid, if you had the same graphics card as me, but DX is having some glitch, you and I won't be able to play GTA4. A 9600GT will play it fine.
  14. well maybe a antec earthwatts 430W. i think that should be enough. Well this info isn't necessary anymore. Guys, due to recent problems with my computer I've just decided to canabalize the POS Dell and get a new system all together. I'm also on a better budget since I have a job. Heres my next computer: The Barebone Kit This kit has a better processor than my current one, a nice case, a good PSU, and later, if I want, I can do SLI with the motherboard, just leaving room open in the future. (Probably would need a new PSU then) The Hard drive 32MB cache, woo. The Video Card Beast All comes out to about $580. Also will probably buy an Acer 22" monitor (# ), because theres no reason to have a HD4870 with 1GB of GDDR5 video memory if you have a 15" monitor like I do.
  15. Throughout the months I'm been debating with myself on graphics card and powersupply choice, I've settled on my graphics card ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814125236 ) Still debating on powersupplies, as my current Aprevia 305W wont handle the above card. I just don't know much about PSUs. Maybe you guys can help?
  16. Common problem with any game. Play in a window if that option is possible. On Source based games (TF2, CSS), this is a big problem. However in Options if you "Play in Window" the problem does not occur.
  17. Probably has to do with the game's protection. It has like 3 different protections or something, you need to patch the game.
  18. No, you need to upgrade your CPU/RAM/Video Card
  19. Good job, man! It's really well made. As the above post says, without the loud explosion sounds it could be better. If you took those out, it'd be amazing.
  20. Looks like a spot they just missed when skinning.
