GTA 4 (PC) on Radeon graphics cards causes crashes
  

GTA 4 has officially been released for the PC, but users are already having problems with their ATI graphics cards. With the unpatched retail version we have in our office has neither HD 4870 with 1024 MiByte nor a HD 4850 is running. GTA 4 is also denying to run with an HD 3870 or HD 3850. All four graphics cards were tested on two x48 systems with Windows Vista x64 and the Catalyst 8.11 WHQL. Right after the welcome screen GTA 4 crashes.

It is of course possible that GTA 4 (PC) will run under different conditions (operating system, graphics card, driver, motherboard). But there are reports of users in some forums and in the 3D Center forum that describe similar problems. It also seems like Nvidia cards are also negatively affected; they had to run the exe file several times before GTA 4 started.

Therefor we have to currently keep in touch with AMD and Rockstar and try to find a solution for the problem. Possibly a patch or update a driver can help.

Rockstar delivered solutions for several problems of the GTA 4 PC version.

This is exactly what Rockstar recommends to do.

Issue 1 - Fatal Error MMA10 on saving the game.

Possible Solution 1 - Sign out of the Rockstar Social Club, on starting the game skip the login. This allows the game to start. If you are connected to the Internet, you will be prompted to login to Game For Windows Live (GFWL). If you login to this will save the game without issues.

However if you are not connected to the Internet, GFWL has an offline mode. If you try to save at your safe house, it will advise you to login. From here choose YES and the game will appear to freeze for a second, hold down the Alt and press Tab to go back to your desktop. You will see the option to sign into GFWL Offline mode, do this and then ALT + Tab back into the game. This should allow you to save, although it may take you to the beginning of the game.

Possible Solution 2 - Install. NET Framework 3.5, but also unconfirmed. Net Framework 1.1 may need to be installed first.

Issue 2 - Graphical distortion using an NVIDIA 7900 video card

Solution - Install and use the latest beta driver for the 7 series video cards.
Rockstar explicitly points out that the use of Beta drivers is done at one's own risk

Windows XP (32 bit) - 180.70
Windows XP (64 bit) - 180.60
Windows Vista (32 bit) -180.60
Windows Vista (64 bit) - 180.60


Issue 3 - General crashes / freezes

Solution - Install all the latest updates for Windows. Including service packs (SP3 for XP and SP1 for Vista). Close background applications.

Sometime back we already reported about ATI graphics cards causing GTA 4 to crash. Therefor we have to currently check if an update provided for the Rockstar Social Club solved that particular problem, too.
