Using a LG GH22NS30 sata dvd drive to install the game:

and another error:

Using an older samsung ide/pata drive to install the game:

..as you can see, the game is installing using the older drive while the newer drive just causes the installer to crash

Makes me wonder how sh*tty companies are being with picking out which drives you can and can not use. First time, i notice this odd behavior as well

In terms of not making it generally painless to install GTAIV, Rockstar has performed well.

I wouldn't go quite that far, but it has been difficult for some users.

I'm still thinking of buying it. Because of the multiplayer. My pals didn't notice any problems with the installer.

Optimism? I wouldn't characterize it that way. I've had it a week now and I really enjoy playing it. It's perhaps one of the funnest games I've ever played. The problems I've had are minimal. Unless some people have been getting a bug whereby a digitized penis sprouts from the screen and begins urinating on them and their keyboard, I really don't see any real hangup about buying it. Fixes will be coded. Rockstar has said as much. Optimism? No. Patience is a better word.

This simply isn't the quality i expect from Rockstar Games. How could they botch a port? Almost makes me think they outsourced the porting work to some sh*tty company so they can work on the next important project.

I chalk this up to inexperience porting from this next generation of consoles. If you recall GTA3 had it's problems as well. I can remember it having an issue of slow performance even with the best of FX cards at the time. There were fixes later that greatly improved performance. Yet despite all it's problems GTA3 is a great game and a classic that many GTA gamers still play. So as far as GTAIV goes all I can say is judge slowly. Whatever comes after GTAIV, and yes I think we can easily assume to hear about it in the next eight to ten months, will have a smoother transition to PC.

Important Project? I see. Like Manhunt 3: The Sequel that Doesn't Suck..... tongue.gif

Ohhhh good gravy that was funny! laugh.gif

Yeah that would be cool to see how Rockstar handles it if they're making one. Will they focus on just one landmass? Will they use multiple carts if such a thing is possible? Will CJ make an encore??? burning questions. PSP has been awful lonely for GTA lately. After Chinatown Wars the GTA landscape will be a little barren for a while. We need something to look forward to. Another PSP release would be something to pine for.

Back to the topic. Everybody should have seen the writing on the wall. Pushed back release date. I mean come on, what does that tell you? GTAIV was huge project and if they have to fix a few things in post-post production, so be it. My 2 cents.
