GTA IV Running Too Fast

Not open for further replies.


Back to school!!
I need help with GTA IV, the game runs too fast on my PC, I'm not talking about FPS(about 50 @ 1024x768 ), but animations like walking, driving or anything that moves in the game is moving at twice the speed. Take look at these videos I've found;


The Bug is like the Speed Time Up cheat on GTA SA, this happens randomly, about 3 out of 4 times, if this happens I need to close and restart the game a couple of times and it might go away, then I can play the game for hours without any problem, seems the problem either occures at start or not. But this is driving me crazy, I'm even thinking about running the game in background 24x7 once the problem goes away, since I have 3.4GB available RAM.

Seriously guys I need help, thanks in advance.

Can you try patching it first?

Here's what the patch does:

* A 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
* Support for DirectInput controllers. Note: The current hack way of supporting these controllers may not work with the improved functionality. So we recommend you remove the hack before upgrading to the patch.

Issues with power management software have also been fixed (slow speed, double speed issues). Even after the patch comes out setting power management software to maximum performance is recommended. We’ve seen cases where power management software does not detect the game is running and puts the CPU in green mode.

Besides the patch we’ve also improved the way the Social Club handles data this should have greatly reduced or eliminated the MMA10 error. If you are still receiving this error after logging in and out of Social Club we would like to know as much info as you can about it.
