I have some problems in GTA iv.

It shows some textures over the models. here are two examples.

in this one a texture on road appears over Niko.

GTA iv road texture over Niko

in this second one black parts appear all over the screen when in the safe house. (this applies to all indoors)

GTA iv black parts allover screen - indoor

their isnt much problems than that.

my PC is P4 2.66, 1.5GB ram, nVidia 7300GS.

i usually run at lowest graphics settings. but i tried different combinations none of them solved the problem.

the game version is 1.0.4.0 and nVidia driver version is 190.62

Umm yeah, 7300? you won't be playing it "right" anytime soon.

And be careful you might burn your graphics card (2nd screenshot) that's because of overheat and GPU instability.

I hope you know I am playing GTA 4 PC and I updated to 1.0.4.0 patch. I have no problem with the texture but the sawtooth!

And I hope you know enough about computers to come up with a decent conclusion. Your PC is decent, sure that 9400 sucks but it's better than an 7300, his on the other hand is obsolete in any way and that 7300 is horrible, a patch won't solve his "GPU melting" problem.

7300 sure fully support GTA 4 PC if I am not wrong. But the problem here isn't how beautiful the game is but texture is crash. My friends also play GTA 4 with even lower level card like 6800 at minimum. No problem will happen if you apply the patch.

Exactly what I was saying....6800 is A LOT better than an 7300. The card with a higher number is not always the best and if you didn't understand till now, it's not about being able to run the game, his card might burn, it can't sustain a game like GTA IV.

P.S I'm not talking about textures, forget about the first screenshot, look at the 2nd...that's the problem and it's not texture related.

Oh well, thanks for telling me this. And it proves you are right. So if there is no way he can do, stop playing the game might do!
