Additional Comments

Need winetricks extra: wmp10 And xliveless need to unpack to the game folder. I run GTA IV from NTFS file system, it's cause some performance problem in game. Install game to ext4 to increase performance. And launch with: LaunchGTAIV.exe -norestrictions -nomemrestrict (it's increase performance) Computer Configuration.

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.

In-game TV

In-game TV can't be watched, since it crashes the game.
Previously, I renamed the 'movies' folder to 'movies_bak', so the game couldn't find the files and therefore there wasn't any playback.

A while ago, I thought that it could be a video codec issue, so I googled around, and found out that Rockstar used the Blink codec.
I installed it from the RAD Game Tools website: www.radgametools.com/down/Bink/RADTools.7z

Tried again with the Blink codec installed, and it worked!

Thanks for the tip!

How did you installed Blink codec (what exact command)?

The archive (www.radgametools.com/down/Bink/RADTools.7z), when extracted, yields an .exe installer that will add the driver and some converters to the wine prefix.
Just run the installer, and voilĂ  :)
