Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installation
  • Playing
  • Loading save games

What does not

  • gta4Browser.exe crashes on startup, leading to the whole game crash - I had to rename it.
  • Full screen mode doesn't work with Nvidia TwinView - workaround is Wine virtual desktop or -windowed option.
  • Changing resolutions in virtual desktop leads to invisible window - only sound is heard, but no graphics
  • The game runs rather slow

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.
