Additional Comments

I installed GTA IV in his own prefix: $ WINEPREFIX=~/.gta4 wine setup.exe Then update the game with the Title Update 7: $ WINEPREFIX=~/.gta4 wine UpdateTitle.exe Then put xlive.dll in the install directory (as explained in the HOWTO): $ cp xlive.dll "~/.gta4/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Rockstar Games/Grand Theft Auto IV" To launch the game: If you have an Nvidia Graphic Card with the Optimus technology, change directory to the installation one and type: $ WINEPREFIX=~/.gta4 optirun wine LaunchGTAIV.exe This requires Bumblebee installed. primusrun doesn't work (D3D crash). Else you can launch the game by the main menu. Note that I have these packages installed (if you have any trouble): wine-mono, wine_gecko, samba (often needed for winbind) and lib32-libxslt (available in the AUR).

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.

Gamepads

Crashes when watching TV
by Dennis Mayr on Thursday February 14th 2019, 13:06
When watching in-game TV, the game is unable to display the TV video stream (format incompatibility, perhaps?), leading to a general crash.
This can interrupt gameplay during missions, such as the "Lure" mission, where you have to shoot a target that is watching in-game TV.

Workaround: rename the "movies" folder to something else (e.g. "movies_bak"), then play the mission.
