GTA IV PC error troubleshooting

Grand Theft Auto IV - Rockstar/Take2 News | @ 08:37 PM MDT | By rappo
The PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV is now available in North America, Europe, and Australia! The release, however, does not come without trouble: many frustrated gamers have been reporting framerate and general graphic settings issues.

Although I wish we could be bringing news of a complete fix for these problems, that may have to wait off a couple weeks. For now, Rockstar Games has published a couple documents on the official support page, including one that explains each graphics setting and another that documents all error codes that the game may return. Unfortunately, many people have reported that their game suffers from framerate problems regardless of the graphics settings. We'll be covering any game patches or solutions that we come across, for now anybody with problems can try our forums for support.

Thanks to .:Mouldy Punk:. for the information

Yeah, this was my sole game purchase of the year that I had been waiting for since it was released on the consoles. It wasn't pleasant jumping through installation hoops and signing up for a million accounts and getting the run around with extra downloads, but I really didn't enjoy being caught by an error from the Social Club that kept the game from launching. When I did get in game, in between LOTS OF FUN I'd be kinda depressed that with my newish system I still get terrible framerates with graphics that look subpar, even compared to the X-Box version.

The game maxes my settings at medium textures and high details with crappy draw distances at 1680 x 1050 yielding 30fps average with dips and peaks throughout.

I'm running on a Q6600, with 2 gigs of ram, and a HD4850. I thought meeting recommended settings still meant something. =p I hope the game gets optimized more with a patch or something, I don't wanna have to upgrade again so soon.
