Selected Test Results

What works

  • Single player (several missions)
  • Social Club
  • Running on a system with multiple monitors at different resolutions.

If using a video card with more than 2GB VRAM, consider using the following launch options:

-norestrictions -nomemrestrict -percentvidmem 100

What does not


What was not tested

I didn't test Multiplayer, but I assume it would work as the Social Club and GFWL (Games for Windows Live) work; assuming you're willing to make an xbox account.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

A vanilla install uses a cloud save system that's dependent on GFWL. It is necessary to have an account to run the game.

To avoid making a xbox account, I used xlive.dll to remove the extra DRM. However, this does break the multiplayer.

If you're experiencing poor FPS after trying the launch options mentioned above, try some of the following:

  1. Disable vsync in game and/or by using the "-novblank" launch option.
  2. Turn "Shadows" down/off (shadows in this game will cause stuttering on even the best systems).
  3. Turn "View Distance" to something < 50 (Like shadows, setting this too high will hurt performance on any hardware).
  4. Make sure you CPU scaling governor isn't set to "powersave".
  5. Adding the "-nocache" launch option may improve FPS but may also introduce stuttering.
