So yeah, pretty much got my copy of Gta IV 3 days ago, and i'm enjoying every single bit of it! well, almost. i has a problem. Basicly, My pc can run it perfect on a great framerate, around 50 on highest of what is available, but my fps drops to about 15 in some moments. it occurs around every 3/4 minutes and is completely random. for instance, i'm riding with my hummer to some clothing shop, when it suddenly just jumps to 10 fps for about 30 seconds. then it stops and i continue driving with my 50 fps back on. Also, when i drive back to the spot where it happened, it stays at my regular speed. Weird. eh? So, any of you had this and knows the solution? also, lowering settings wont work.

    Hmm, i'm trying the newest Video Card Driver where the Gta support page linked me to now. let's see if that has results.

    GTA IV is one of the buggiest ports I've seen for a few months, don't expect it to perform great at all until it's a couple of patches in.

    Yeah there is no way i can reccomend buying this game in the current state it is in. i have an absolute top of the range comp and it still runs like shit so it is just unoptimised code and a bad port.im not even so sure patchs will fix the games problems.

    Its the game not your pc, you should search google first becuase i did and the first link came up was that saying that almost all people who bought game where having performance issues, so i don't understand why people make these threads there point less.

    The game runs differently on everyone's PC. For example, my PC is substantially less powerful than djisgod's, yet I get very respectable framerates with hardly any stuttering with most settings on med/high and draw distances relatively high. However, even if I had to play it on all low, I'd fucking love the game. It's so much fun and incredibly wacky.

    No, even god is confused. Hmmm.... CCleaner? That's my solution to all my stuttering problems and FPS drops for some reason...
