After A Long Time, Grand Theft Auto 4 Received Patch Notes
Grand Theft Auto 4 by Rockstar Games received patch notes after six (6) years. That is no typo, it really is for Grand Theft Auto 4. The patch notes are for the PC version of the game. Grand Theft Auto 4 was released way back in 2008 and the last patch issued was on 2010.
The latest patch notes announcement came as a surprise to many since it had already been 8 years since the game’s release. We believe that the devs of the game see something special in GTA 4 to give it a new patch.
The ‘Patch 8’ as the devs call it, mostly focuses on the game’s compatibility with Windows 8, 8.1, and 10. Making the game compatible with the modern operating systems as well as PCs. Part of Patch 8 also included some performance optimizations as well as bug fixes.
PC GTA 4 Patch Notes
- The error code “WTV270” for Windows Live Servers is added to indicate if there is a problem when connecting to the Windows Live Sign In Assistant/Games.
- OS check compatibility was added for Windows 8, 8.1, and 10.
- The Controller Configuration now has a Display Controller image.
- Repairs were made to the bug that hinders completing the “Out of Commission” mission impossible when the frame rates exceed 60 fps.
- Fixes on the error that indicates “Resource Usage” on graphics cards with more than 2 GB of VRAM is fixed.
- Repairs on the restrictions on modern video cards.
- No more map crosshairs on certain resolutions.
- No more text scrolling in “Brief” Menu.
- Errors in “drawlist overflow” is fixed.
- Minor performance optimizations.
The patch is good, however, most are still frustrated about the requirement to sign up for Games for Windows Live because it was not removed on the patch.
