Are u supposed to click on IV circle for the game to run? It wont.

in order to run gta iv from the software, you need to have "LaunchGTAIV.exe" in GTA IV's directory. If this still don't work, then run the f**king thing the usual way.

i havent got this working yet, i followed instructions for java runtime update, i run program as administrator, i used windows 7 troubleshoot facility, i even tried to run program from GTAIV main directory and still could not get this to even start... ''' THE VERSION OF THIS FILE IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THE VERSION OF WINDOWS YOUR RUNNING. CHECK YOUR COMPUTERS SYSTEM INFORMATION TO SEE WHETHER YOU NEED AN x86 (32BIT) OR x64 (64BIT) VERSION OF THE PROGRAM THEN CONTACT THE SOFTWARE PUBLISHER. '''' <<<<<<<<< the error message i recieve when trying to run.... this tool could possibly be brilliant, but it WILL NOT work for me so sadly i rate this 2/10

I tested on windows 7 computer with only jre 7 installed. I cannot compute the nature of your problem. You are the only one who has had this problem.

and the software will indeed initially start without a gta iv directory, so copying to gta iv directory is meaningless.


1.download this simple test i just wrote up to your Desktop:


2.run cmd. (windows button + r, type cmd ..then press ok)

3.type cd Desktop.

4.now, type this:path c:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin; %path%

5.now, type this:java -jar java_test.jar

6.You should see a window popup. If so it is successfully installed, else it is not installed.

the [path c:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin; %path%] part is where you installed jre7.

If this "c:\Program Files\Java\jre7\" is not where you installed jre7, then change it accordingly.

Working for everyone elese? Beta testers? There R only like 3 comments here out of 175 DL's. Looks as tho none have it working yet. :)

java is a multi-platform language...which the software is written in. I myself have tested the code on various machines...to determine if certain functionalities are even across variety of systems of different resolutions and power.

Installing the small jre7 file enlisted in download, and subsequently running the file should grant you access to the magic that this software produces.

Furthermore, the instance of 175 downloads with no responses is ambiguous. Does it mean users are too busy employing the new game-play @ faster frames and have no time to thank me, or are they too disappointed and depressed to respond?


When I download a tool, whether it works or not I rarely ever comment.

What does this mod do? Could you explain the processes please? Thanks.

What it does isn't much, but it would take Order log n times to do it manually.

Apologize for the language above.

What the mods does is reorganize gta iv files such that the game reads "low end" shader files native to gta IV IV, instead of the default mid-high shader files. What i mean by the order log n thing is that it would take a significantly large amount of time to do by hand, rather than the time my software takes to accomplish this.

juz for IV ? work for eflc??

PHEWW, : ) Got almost my game totally f**k'ed up.

1st try; directory set on shortcut 'LaunchgtaIV', Highest performance and click 'IV' button didn't work then i click shortcut, Game starts but no increase of fps.

2nd try; directory set on install 'GTAIV' Highest 'IV' button or shortcut, Game starts and my enb is totally messed up. Lightning, colors, brightness even the 'HORROR' missing textures without your enb settings replaced.

3rd try; It gives an error 2020 or something when i launch the game and it won't start.

4th try; The software freeses when i selected restore and exit it with windows taskmanager

with few more tries i did a windows new startup i restored it again and start the game normally with shortcut and the game is as it should be for my enb.

Well it was worth it 4 trying to get more fps.

this is intended for people who just want to get the game running....and sacrifice much visual integrity

"this is intended for people who just want to get the game running....and sacrifice much visual integrity"

@Bushman that's rubbish. We live in 2012 now not in 2007 (the game is a port from the xbox360/ps3 in 2007) Now in 2012 we all have a good pc (i think). I'll get round 25-30 fps in the game and with your * software i'll get a bit more but with missing textures.

I'm not be'ing offensive i'm just be'ing realistic !!!
Posted on May 27, 2012 2:41AM by L0V2XLR8
daim....this is what software was intended for. If you don't want to sacrifice then don't use. There are people out there that are very desperate to even get it running. It's for them.

Why you don't say it in the first place.

That's totally different.

In the description you say : Enables user to attain 40% more fps in game... !

That's what we all want (more fps)

And i restored it many times but still i got bugs from your Mod.

So Plz make it with less bugs/errors or no bugs/errors at all so that i can restore the game to normal without a re-install

okay. I have uploaded a shader file original on my blog site. GO to link in description. And download the shader file enlisted on site.

The mod fiddles with shader files. If you cannot restore for some reason download that shader original rar and copy and replace it with current shader files.
Posted on June 8, 2012 10:33PM by Bushman
Now i know what the probem is. This programm is Only for patch

There is a difference between patch and for the shaders.

With this shaders original the shadows are gone except for vehicles (look terrible) but no more missing textures (yay)

If i knew this mod goes "fiddles" it with shader files i would back it up.

So please upload the shaders from patch !
Posted on June 13, 2012 8:47AM by L0V2XLR8
Nevermind i downloaded the shaders from gta-downloads.com

Good work! Do you have to set highest/high performance before every gameplay or only once?
Posted on January 31, 2013 11:08AM by ZiQUE

i download the program and followed the instructions and now i can't play the game because it's telling me TO RE-INSTALL IT!!!!!! This was supposed to help me not ruin my game...
Posted on April 26, 2013 3:06AM by abdo220022
I first opened it and set my directory, and then set it to highest performance. I tried to play the game and it was completely ruined. I can't see more than a few feet in front of the player. The restore button doesn't even work, it just crashes when I try to click it, so I had to use my backup installation and lose all of my other mods. Thanks.

Downloaded this and applied the "highest" performance and now my game is all messed up. Clicked restore, still messed up. Buildings don't load properly, just flicker and the same with my sunglasses.
