    Not surprised, I thought it was a joke thread to start with.

    Wonder if this fixes the crash issue at the end of the benchmark? Since I ditched W7 this pretty much detered me from finishing the game.

    So I had a modded version of GTA IV (HULK Mod, Jurassic Park Jeep mod, Better explosions mod...etc..) and the update made the game unlaunchable
    so I had to to do a fresh install...

    After that the game booted fine and all my saves were still there.
    If there really was a minor performance upgrade then they were not kidding...

    because I didn't see a difference

    I don't think a performance increase is why this has been since reading it, it appears the main reason for the update is W8/10 support.

    Last time I tried installing GTA4 on here it wouldn't run, probably for that reason

    I just finished it last weekend, not eager to go back.
    I feel like I'm done with the series, felt like that most of the game. Which is why it's taken me a year and a half to finish it lol.

    Whoops just noticed it's 4 not 5:bang:

    Some of those as well
    I never got to playing more than a couple of hours into the storyline in GTA4, despite several attempts. I just didn't find the game fun for some reason.

    GTAV on the other hand is a good game. I don't rank it as one of my all time favourites (mostly as I prefer sci fi) but found it very enjoyable. Trevor may be the best character ever, though.

    The fact that this patch did not completely REMOVE the defunct G4WL garbage is the funniest thing I've seen in years! :giggle2:

    I still have NOT finished GTA 4 because I was too busy modding the sh*t out of it! Tons of fun with visual mods, cars and textures...

    Actually, I just moved onto ARMA 3 so will have to go back to GTA 4 again...

    Well now I can launch it without needing Xbox live-less patch.

    Also confused but I'm at work and can't really check, does GTAIV still have mp servers active?
