Additional Comments

I used PlayOnLinux to install the game. The game works much slower than on Windows XP but is stable. I played on lowest possible settings and the game is playable, though framerate is much lower than on Windows XP. Also there is a graphical bug (black dots in certain places). I finished playing the game on Linux having reached 21.48% progress. My video: NVIDIA 9xxx with 195.30 driver version

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.
