GTA:IV bugs & glitches topic v2.0

The official GTA IV bugs and glitches topic v2.0

Please click this link to refer to the last topic!


The last GTA:IV bugs & glitches thread was getting hard to update so welcome to the GTA:IV; Bugs and Glitches thread v2.0!
Almost all GTA games have had different bugs and glitches Some of them can be cool while others can be annoying such as stopping you from being able to compleate missions (and thus the game) so I created this thread so that we can list all of them we can and find ways to avoid them or activate them, depending on the type of glitch it is, this thread may also serve as a general discussion thread about the bugs and glitches in GTA:IV.

The List!

Found by wictro:
When i watched TV in Romans apartment, Nikos head was shaking spastically nonstop (on the third person view). Haven't tried other TVs this far.

Solution none

Chairs in "Love Triangle" strip club have zero hitpoints.
If you walk "hugging" the back of the seats, you tear pieces of them.
The reason is propably that they din't put hitpoints on the chair, or didn't put em enough.

Solution none

Found by iKlipse:
Pedestrians disappearing and re-appearing as if one view of them shows them as a solid textured object, another view as invisable. Its not that common but I've really only noticed it inside buildings such as Burger Shot and the Hospital.

Minor spoiler if you haven't beaten the first few missions.
Frozen stripper - accept her offer for a private dance, follow her a few feet, then turn and walk the other way a few feet, then go ahead and catch up to her. Don't know if this was because I was on a mission or not. She was breathing, but was otherwise motionless. I pushed her around (was going to see if I could push her outside), but I got her stuck in a corner. I didn't try punching her, but I did run at her and she stayed frozen.

Across the road from Roman's taxi depot there is a sort of open building with a roof. Go underneath and climb on the telephone box. Niko will go up into the roof and jump about a few times then fall next to the building.

Car Radio: There were two instances yesterday where the game couldn't manage to switch the radio station. I just got the static/mix sound that it makes in between stations non stop.

If you strike a pedestrian with your vehicle where it can be dented (The left, or right side of bumpers for example...),and blood appears there and then you dent it, the blood may just hover there as if the car still had that are intact.

The only bug I've noticed so far was a street lamp that was penetrating the overhead subway line in Broker. I only noticed it because I got my car caught up there and I was driving around trying to find a way out!

I've had this bug a couple of times now, my PS3 is one of the 80 GB which I haven't heard any problems with. However after I save at roman's apartment and then press the PS button and go to quit game the game crashes and the PS3 just restarts it self. Kinda minor but strange all the same

Solution none

Some bugs found by nikobellic!
One thing that really annoys me.....this should not be happen in a game that has been in development for soo long!! Especially when this service is going to be used all the time!

TAXI's- Always smack into shit when they pull over for you!! Its fucking annoying! and Roman's taxi ploughs through traffic to get to you!
-While on Taxi's....i was out with a girlfriend and tried to get a taxi.....I couldnt get in (glitch #1) but my girlfriend did......and off she went in this bloody taxi (Glitch #2)......I thought " drunk how can I chase down the taxi and get her back?" Well magically my drunk effect was gone! (Glitch #3) Apart from the screen being blury and shaking....

-After playing Multiplayer I quit.....and while Loading to go back to single player mode it froze up.

-My bitch girlfriend Kiki thinks im sleeping with whores.....(this would be a glitch if it wasnt true)

-There are a few more minor ones....i guess that is what some of the reviews touched on.....its disappointing to see these problems still exist!

*These are glitches I have bitched on.....the game is awesome!
Tops to R* and the team for the hardwork gone into it! Sweat, blood and tears!
I guess you guys do it cos it pays, your good at it and you cant do anything else!!

Looking forward to an update though to fix the issues reported!!

I have completed the Story and all activities for Brucie, yet I still haven't been able to unlock the You Got The Message Achievement, whereby you get text messages to deliver specific cars to a Garage in Bohan (apparently). Now I have yet to receive texts or any indication on how to start this side mission.

Solution none

How about The Human Statue?

And a video, just so you don't think I made a lucky snap.

-When I was driving toward the bridge at the beginning of the game when it was still blocked from terrorists attack. I saw a bunch of cars going to the same direction and cars start to run into the police barrier as if they didn't know it's supposed to be there.

Solution: None

There is a problem when doing the text base car missions, you are supposed to get a text message on your phone but that doesen't seem to happen, and it is a real problem for those wanting to get 100% in GTA IV.

Solution: None

Every Time I take the subway and I get off at the Frankfort low station the game puts me under the map and the only way for me to get out is to reload my game, also I believe when I did the three leaf clover mission it was in that same station, and I fell though the map when I walked close to a wall, and I was falling for a good ten seconds and I thought I was going to die, but I ended up back on the street and even though I had a wanted level for the mission no cops were around at all so I just ran around until I found the station entrance again and finished the rest of the mission.

Possible Solution: You have to either reload the game or restart the game.

Found by RudiRulez
If your driving a car or bike and you go onto your camera on your phone your vehicle will just instantly stop.

Solution: None.

Found by Evi1d33d
I stop my bike next to a pole while picking up Roman. So the pole blocked Roman from getting onto the bike and he just repeated bumping into the pole.

Solution: Just wait a few secconds, if it doesen't work restart your console.

Found by MurphySk8
Stevie's garage door got stuck inside the building's wall, so that I could see inside, but it wouldn't open anymore.

Solution: All you have to do is leave the area to fix it.
