Well I got some nice texture mods and now I can't fix this texture loading issues. Tried some commandlines but same thing.
-availablevidmem 2

-noprecache

-nomemrestrict

-norestrictions

-novblank


Oh btw I have a 6870 not 6850, just felt like clarifying that.

See my previous post about -norestrictions and -nomemrestrict. I found out they aren't a good thing. They're a fix for some issues, but cause problems of their own. There is a better method that I detailed in my last post.

You might try removing -noprecache. It will use more of your Vram to have it on, but textures should load faster with it not disabled.

Well I had to redo my mods to fix it, had a backup clean version. Did the fps tweaks in the previous post, works. Must of been some other mod that was messing up my game. Anyways screenies, just need to find a decent enb mod but without changing stuff like timecys ect because i think that's what messed up my game last time, somthing did. Tried 1.0.0.4 patch but i lose fps in that version, i get the most fps on patch 1.0.0.7 on my rig oddly but doesn't matter since even the shadows look better on that version.

All i have installed atm is lords texture pack, some road texture i found though might snoop around to see if there is better. Mellinas weapons, bf3 weapon sound mod and a texture mod of niko.

Another thing that you should do for GTA IV regardless of whether you mod it or not is to uncheck Windows Event Log and Windows Event Collector by going to the start menu, typing Msconfig and going to the services tab. Scroll down and uncheck these two things and it smooths gameplay out even more.

GTA is a pretty crappy port and requires a lot of maintenance to run well on PC apparently. Those two things cause lag no matter how far above specs your PC is and they should be disabled.

It's a temperamental game. It seems like every time I play I have to do something to get it to run smoothly again. It's gone back to screwing up in crossfire, but going back to a single GPU with my commandlines.txt tweaked, Windows Event Log and Windows Event Collector disabled, and maxed settings is running smoothly...for now.

It really is a crappy port and most of its problems stem from that. It's a heavy load even without the porting issues, but from what I've been reading it's hard to get it to run smoothly because of various coding issues even with uber hardware.

Still, I've managed to get it running smoothly a couple of times, but it seems like every time I boot it up again I've got to tweak or adjust something else to keep it going that way.

I was able to finish LAD with a decent framerate and it ran smoothly. Then I started BOGT and had to mess with it again and tweak a bit more to get rid of lag issues and a couple of freezes. I think I've got it running about as well as it's going to and everything is still maxed out as far as in game settings go. Every one of the tweaks I mentioned in this thread has helped at least a little so I recommend trying them out if you're still having issues with the game.

Yea only thing with turning off event log is that it can make windows unstable. Anyways i got it to a stable average of 30fps with enbs and all the mods. Runs 50fps vanilla but kind of worth the fps loss for the way it looks, runs pretty decent.

link to enb being used, if you do happen to use it remeber to go in the enbseries.ini and set ForceAntialiasing=true to false or else it's gonna scale the resloution a lot with enbs and make a bunch of lag. Enb made specific for patch 1.0.0.7 for the original gta iv.

Yeah. I don't leave Windows Event Log or Windows Event Collector off. I just undo them to play the game and put them back once I've finished. I have to restart to do it, but it's no big deal. It does help with the framerate on GTA and makes it run more stable. Like I said, crappy coding makes GTA IV and WEL and WEC not play nice together for some reason.

I probably should have mentioned that it's a good idea to turn it back on once you've finished playing. It requires a restart, but it's worth it if you're going to be playing GTA for a while.

If you're having framerate issues I suggest trying it. My game runs smoothly for a short while, but if I don't disable them it runs worse and worse until it crashes or freezes within an hour or so of playing. It stays stable and runs pretty smoothly with them disabled though. It's a weird fix, but effective.

Contrabardus: thanks alot for the -memrestrict 1610612736 it kinda fixed it but i had some problems with the -availablevidmem no mater what i set it from 1 till 2.5 i get missing texters so what i a did was i just didnt use the availablevidmem this is what i used :

-memrestrict 1610612736
-noprecache
-novblank
-norestrictions

And without the -norestrictions the game gets kinda laggy so with these codes the game runs really good no missing texters so far

actually the - availablevidmem f**ks the whole game up, running now on -memrestrict 1887436800 can see the farthest bullding with no missing texterS WITH HIGHT SETTINGS
