    An Old Timer Checking In

    I was chatting with a buddy about GTA and he linked me to a download on TGTAP. Decided to check in and say hello ... it's been (literally) ages since I've been here. Any other old members still around?
  2. If you update direct x and dx you might have to not sign into or use the Rockstar Games Social Club.

    Vista sucks.

    I had a laptop with Vista for almost a year (sold it now). The only thing that really hindered my using it was a slightly different interface. Other than that, I really didn't notice much of a difference in day-to day operations than with XP. It ran virtual machines, etc fine.

    Have you been banned on another forum?

    At the time I joined it, it was the only GTA site I could find. I was referred to it by some friends. I didn't even know of anything but GTA forums. After that it was GTA Boards. I was banned from GTA Forums multiple times. Usually the mods would pick a fight, and I'd be dumb and keep it going to the point that I got banned.

    What do you wear?

    I'll bump this topic. I'm always wearing jeans, usually dirty looking from working outside / on cars / lawnmowers / etc but clean. Plain Tshirt or hoodie. I rarely wear shorts in the summer. Footwear is always workboots in the inter. If it's spring / fall, possibility of work boots but usually sneakers. The sneakers are always what I can get cheap. In the summer, I wear sneakers, sandals or go around barefoot.

    Anyone Havin this Problem ?

    Funny, as that's the reccommended requirement. I have an ATi 3850, which is below the reccommended (slightly) and the game runs really smoothly. Perhaps it's programs running in the background or something? I'm running it on a laptop 8600GT

    8600 is on the low end for this game - mine has a bit of trouble running this.

    Religiously confused?

    Pretty much haha. We are a bunch of molecules that make cells that make organs that make organ systems that make people. I think of it that way.

    Fastest Internet Browser?

    I think the 3rd party (to MS) are all the same in terms of speed. Web browsers themselves take little resources and computers are quick and powerful now. I don't even have a preference anymore ... as long as i have my bookmarks I'm happy.

    First try updating the game itself with the patches available from rockstar. Next, update your video card drivers.
  15. I backed up my save games a few weeks ago when I had to restore a backup of the game. I put them in the same folder but I can't find them ... How do I get them to work?

    Walking in a winter wonderland...

    I dont recall that happening anytime within the past ... ever? If it was going to get down to -20F, the temperature wouldn't be warm enough to begin with to even remotely cause a tornado. At MOST, the temperature would have been +30 and at that, there's simply not enough moisture in the atmosphere to make it unstable enough for a tornado. Yes, one needs a temperature change, but from 90-70 maybe, not whatever NY gets in the winter.

    Favorite GTAIV Car

    I can't think what the name of it is ... but the one that is modeled after a Cadillac Brougham sedan.

    Relationship Status

    Single and hating it for sure.
  19. I've done this thousands of times and I cant get it done. The police always see me go in the pay n sprays and I can't get rid of the wanted level. Any suggestions on this?

    GTA IV vs Saints Row 2

    GTA 4 is much more realistic
  21. So I got a virus on the PC (Not sure where from) and it wont boot. I need to put the hard drive in an enclosure and pull the savegames off. Any suggestions as to what I have to copy over to do a backup.

    Backing up savegames?

    Alright. I will probably end up copying the whole user profile and then sorting through it.

    [RELEASE] GTAIV Handling Editor

    I am having the problem that after I edit handling.dat (well rename the orignal and then save the eited one has handling.dat) that the game will not launch on the edited version. I replace it with the original and it launches.
  24. I ended up doing it by driving on the straight road on the island and outrunnig the cops. Seemed like they were waiting at the pay n sprays.

    My specs and a question

    Overclocking wouldn't affect the memory of the video card - the memory and gpu speeds it would. There are multiple versions of the card by different manufacturers. Some had 512, some had 256.
