    before kiling the driver god...LOL
    it's because the powermizer options are disabled in the desktop version. and maybe something else.
    i use to love it with out, but not anymore..i always make sure the powermizer options are inserted into my inf file.

    yeah, me too. we did kill a few people in cod4 though.

    that constant haze fog or what ever it is over the whole city. including while your just walking out of your apartment and taking in the city from under neath the train tracks....is wack. sorry, but it just is.

    i love the game, but it's a few things they could or should have improved over the ps3/xbox. the main reason why people wanted to play on pc. higher end graphics...but looks like we will be waiting about a month for that.

    that driver is a trick. i already had sli enabled, but it kept crashing at high resolutions.. seems to work in super low res mod.

    that first patch aint even the one every body is waiting for...it's to allow more controllers and some other nonsense. nothing to do with rendering them textures and other key points they really need to work on. (read this somewhere. not my words)

    guys, after playing the game a lil bit more, it doesnt look half bad, the reason while the screens look crap is that they are scaled down, i'm playing @ 1440x900 SLiders at max render Quality on high and textures on mid, and getting in the range on 20's with a Single 7950GTX, and the game is barley Jagged on Native res.. but still i need some SLI support

    Johnksss I have around 20-30 fps at 1680x1050 however the game does not feel smooth at all. If I had a faster CPU the game would run much better.

    brainer add this to a txt file and name it commandline.txt and place it it in GTA IV folder where the exe files are.

    -availablevidmem 1024 of course you have to add -norestrictions too.

    Now voila you can run with textures on High without any abnormalies :)

    Actually my GTA IV on my desktop looks awesome, much better than my Xbox 360 version. I have around 30+ fps when driving around in the night, there are these occasional dips rarely which feels like memory leaks since they can happen even if there is not much traffic at that spot at that time.

    Sometimes I have all the way up to 50+ fps outside. But during daytime usually 40+ driving around :)

    hmm there seems to be more commands I would like to see what I could do if the game is tweakable.
