The Complete Edition
Grand Theft Auto IV was developed by Rockstar North and is the eleventh title in the Grand Theft Auto series, and the first main entry since 2004's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Set within the fictional Liberty City (based on New York City), the single-player story follows a war veteran, Niko Bellic, and his attempts to escape his past while under pressure from loan sharks and mob bosses. The open world design lets players freely roam Liberty City, consisting of three main islands.
The game is played from a third-person perspective and its world is navigated on-foot or by vehicle. Throughout the single-player mode, players play as Niko Bellic. An online multiplayer mode is included with the game, allowing up to 32 players to engage in both co-operative and competitive gameplay in a recreation of the single-player setting. Two expansion packs were later released for the game, The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony, which both feature new plots that are interconnected with the main Grand Theft Auto IV storyline, and follow new protagonists.
Options that deviate from RPCS3's default settings and provide the best experience with this title are listed below.
|SPU xfloat accuracy||Accurate||Fixes missing collision. Requires SPU LLVM recompiler. Expect audio stutter.|
|ZCULL accuracy||Relaxed||Improves performance without any noticeable issues.|
|Write color buffers||On||Fixes missing reflections.|
|Multithreaded RSX||On||Improves performance.|
|Asynchronous texture streaming||On||If you have a stronger GPU, this can give substantial performance boost.|
|Sleep timers accuracy||As Host||Slightly improves performance.|
|RSX FIFO accuracy||Atomic||Helps to reduce crashes.|
- : The base game (v1.00) crashes during booting. The only way to fix it is by updating. It happens with the standard version (e.g. BLUS30127).
