Rockstar Support: Fix for GTA IV Could Be Any Minute or in Days

After waiting two days for a word, any word from Rockstar about the problems plaguing some Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 owners trying to play Grand Theft Auto IV, I returned to the phone this morning to give tech support another call and see how things are on their end.

This time through I talked to a person who walked me through a much longer list of things I should check to make sure it wasn't effecting my gameplay:

Did my harddrive have enough space?
Do I have the latest firmware?
Is my screen saver turned off?
Is vibration turned off?
Are my video settings turned to 720?
Is Autosave off?

If none of those work, I was told, than I need to call back later to tech support to see if they've come up with a solution. The person I spoke with said they haven't heard a thing about a patch coming, but that the problem has been bumped up to their "second level" and a "fix" could arrive in a matter of minutes or three to four days. This elite team is "working around the clock" on a solution, I was told.

"It's like the cure for cancer, people have been working on that for 40 years," they said.

Unlike Rockstar's rapid response to the problems that plagued Bully for the Xbox 360, their reticence to address the issues arising with Grand Theft Auto IV leaves everyone wondering how many people it effects and how serious it is or isn't. Perhaps it's only a small, vocal portion of those who bought the game, perhaps it's much more, but without Rockstar's direct input we have no way of knowing.

I am sure they didn't want to look bad, so it is a good look for them to help them people out there having issues( mines been fine), also I hope they take about a week not days or minutes, so they can try to Optimize the game code also. I remember when 2K patched up 2K8, fu*k it was way better and smoother another example was a.ssassin's Creed when that got patched it ran consistantly smoother.

Liberty City gets Google Maps treatment


[pic - click to view]



God bless Rockstar for including a gigantic fold-out map of Liberty City with every copy of Grand Theft Auto IV. Without it, I might have never been able to find that bar to get the QUB3D achievement. But what a pain in the a.ss it was dealing with that unwieldy map -- it's four times the size of my coffee table, and it folds in 72 different places.

IGN has the answer -- . Powered by Google Maps, everything you'll need is here, from vehicle locations to the hottest entertainment spots in Liberty City. Zoom in, zoom out, add markers ... this is definitely going to be a helpful tool for anyone who plans on spending any time with GTA IV.

According to the in-game statistics, I've dumped hours into this game, and yet I haven't seen half of what's on this map. The game is huge, and I'm going to take my time seeing all of the sights, both online and off. Is there anyone who is truly done with this game yet, and if so, how's unemployment working out for you?

Have you guys messed with the DISPLAY settings? or ya on default settings?

I was and I noticed something, that if you up the CONTRAST & BRIGHTNESS up a bit the game POP OUT MORE, of course put the saturation down a bit so it won't look too saturated(it does go up in color because of the other two settings).

hahahah philo i saw you puttin in work too but shaolin has to be the furthest in the story mode out of everyone on my friends list..

helicopters are the best part of the game.. remember though [semi-spoiler?] theres a difference between being a passenger on a ride/tour and piloting yourself.. if you call brucie to come get you in the chopper then HE will be driving, but if you go on a heli-ride with him and his friends YOU will be driving.

yo for those who don't know about this..... and I'm guessing not a lot of people know aboput it because it's a brand new game... .I found the illest secret on GTA IV. Prop me if you use this....

I did it in multiplayer>party mode just go and use the helicopters at the spawn point or right on top of the safehouse.

Go to the statue of liberty on happiness ending island

The hardest part about doing this is that you have to do it right otherwise you die but if you can just go and jump out of your helicopter at the right point and get on that top level there then just wlak through the doors but before you do try to read the sign outside that says "no hidden content this way"

Climb up the stairs and you will all have a big surprsie waiting for you if you haven't been in there.
