Use launch options to set your resolution before launching the game for the first time. -width 1920 -height 1080 Use xLiveLess to remove Windows Live games or the game will fail to launch. Launching the game by manually running "wine LaunchGTAIV.exe" seems to work better than launching the game through Steam. I used Steam to purchased and download the game, but I run it directly from the .exe without ever opening Steam. Your control bindings will sometimes not be saved after closing the game, just make sure that you use the Quit button and the game closes peacefully.

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.
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.
