Use xLiveLess to remove Windows Live games or the game will fail to launch. http://gtaforums.com/topic/388658-relgtaiv-xliveless/ Use launch options to set your resolution before launching the game for the first time. -width 1920 -height 1080 Launch the game manually by running "wine LaunchGTAIV.exe" instead of launching it from within Steam. You must launch the game from the installation directory, or it gives a SecuROM error. Just set your path variable. I got the game working as stated with a fresh default wine prefix. I didn't have to install anything extra or use any DLL overrides.

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.
