Additional Comments

I used the official POL-Script for this game. The applied razor crack must match with the gta version. I got scary errors until I removed the d3dx9 winetrick. To get better performance set DirectDrawRenderer to opengl and apply the lowest settings.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO remove GFWL from GTAIV

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.

INSTRUCTIONS

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.
