Hi GTA4 gamers,
I bought GT4 without realising I don't have the NVIDIA card w/256MB on board memory (as is mentioned on the box as basic requirement).
(btw my comp is a celeron 2.5 Ghz w/ Intel board, cant remember more details)
Now the game got installed but gives a cryptic error .... and fails to start. Is there a way to get this software to play with a software-patch on computers without a 3D card?
Sonos,there is no way of playing high end games like GTA4 on a basic PC setup.you gonna at least need a 256 meg Graphics card.
You can go for 8800 GT which would cost you 7.5k and this will take all the burden of rendering kick ass graphics for all ur latest games. if you have the budget you can go for the SLI MB with 2 way SLI cards.
I have GTA4 in xbox 360 platform. In my opinion it is much overrated game. Everything boils down to how fast you can drive a car or motorbike. so it can get quite boring at times.shooting mechanism is bit strange. The main drawback of the game is lack of diversity in character development.
