Installation Playing - after applying patch given in Bug 16328 GTAIV NATIVE TRAINER Version 3.5
What does not
gta4Browser.exe crashes, but this doesn't seem to affect the game. Fedor crack - drunk camera. Have to use razor1911 instead. Full screen mode fails with error. '-windowed' command-line-set mode without wine virtual screen emulation Some visual glitches are seen, and terminal is filled with lots of errors. The game is about 2-4 times slower than in Windows.
What was not tested

My machine specs: Pentium4 3.2 GHz HT 2 GiB of DDR533 RAM nVidia 8800GT 512MiB Game is playable on high graphics settings, but with minimal shadows, view distance & detail distance. If wine is compiled with custom optimization options, playability improves considerably.

Games for Windows - LIVE does not work under Wine. GFWL components will crash any game that use the service. The only thing to do about it is to cut XLive out using XLiveLess Patch.
1) Download the latest XLiveLess patch from here.
2) Unpack xlive.dll into the game folder.
XLive is out and the game launch is unobstructed. Please note that from now on the online play via GFWL is disabled so as to prevent cheating.
