Ever since we reported the release of Grand Theft Auto IV two weeks ago, we’ve been getting a continuous stream of E-Mails asking for patches, trainers and other stuff related to the game. This post will hopefully answer all of those questions – Trainers, Savegames, Patches, Cheats and FAQs we find on the net for GTA 4 will be listed here. This article will be updated if we find anything new so don’t forget to check back time to time.

GTA IV Trainer

If you’ve been reading our previous posts, you may already know that this game’s configuration files are protected by Windows Live (Here is how to unlock). This makes it insanely hard to make a trainer for this game. Nevertheless, folks over at Cheathappens have managed to create one but there is a catch – it’s only available to unlimited members of Cheathappens (to become one you need to pay). If the link to full trainer gets leaked, we will update it here. Until then, you’ll have to use the GTA 4 promotional trainer which has only one option (unlimited money).

Note: You need to have Patch 1 installed (See below)

GTA IV Patch 1

Patch 1 has been available for some time now. I installed it but did not notice any performance increase whatsoever. The following problems with the game however are fixed with Patch 1:

  • Fix to the crash after legal screen that some German customers were reporting.
  • Numerous improvements to the video editor: Smarter naming of videos, improved rendering quality, better FX during replays
  • Fix to bowling while using certain sensitive mice
  • Fix for ATI 1900 shadows
  • Overall savings to memory
  • Graphic improvements to particle systems and mirrors
  • Multiplayer character settings are preserved

If you are using a cracked version of the game, make sure you replace the cracked files with the original ones before applying the patch. Both Raz0r1911 and FED0R loader seems to work fine after patch is applied.

GTA IV Savegames

To use other people’s savegames with GTA IV, you need to paste the saved game file to the following directory:

On Windows Vista:
C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\Savegames

On Windows XP:
My Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\Savegames

So far, I have found only one savegame (50% complete) for the game. If you find more, please feel free to drop a comment.

    Not only that, it gives you five bucks and that's it. If you have more than that, it REDUCES it to 5 bucks. Really useful! And no, hitting the money key repeatedly has no effect.
