Looked great in 2008, but the frame rate on PS3 is horrific.

Indeed, I thought my PS3 was faulty.

PC is definitely the one to play it on these days, PS3 looks horrible and 360 has some really noticeable pop-in.

Gonna give the editor a try later today thanks to Dave inspiring me to do so. Any tips would be most welcome.

Also I suspect many of us will be playing GTA IV leading up to GTA V's release so I'm also going to give the latest iCEnhancer a go too.

I'm not sure how wise it would be to try and use the editor if you're installing HD graphics mods, it's already a tad on the unstable side.

It's actually really easy to use, it just takes bucketloads of time to position every camera cut.

Got a little carried away with trying out some different ideas and ended up finishing the next episode already.

Myself and it seems many others are still slogging through the GTA IV experience before GTA V comes along and wipes it off the map completely. EDGE online's Dave Meikleham is too, for the 5th time no less...

At this point I must confess a smidge of an obsession for the 2008 open worlder. I’ve played through Rockstar North’s Rotten Apple adventure four times. It’s now reached the point where I feel so comfortable navigating its intensely familiar hive of sociopathic streets, I could draw you a mental map charting a taxi-stealing, pigeon-shooting, unique stunt jump-strewn journey through the Edinburgh developer’s twisted love letter to New York.

And yet somehow, I’ve only just realised you can spare enemies during a fifth run-through. Opt for the game’s manual aiming over the overly handheld lock-on system and you can merrily fill gangsters’ shins with a concentrated, incapacitating, but crucially non-lethal, dose of lead.

Reaching the graffiti-smeared corners of South Bohan roughly a third of the way through GTA IV, I flicked to the stats screen and was greeted by a welcome surprise. I’d ‘only’ killed 21 people. Now, this may seem trivial, but this numerical wrap sheet represented a concerted effort on my behalf to play the part of Niko The Merciful. By repeatedly forgoing the obvious headshot and shooting foes’ legs until they keeled over, I’d purposely spared two thirds of the virtual low-lives the game had forced me to fight.

"Niko The Merciful". I doubt many of us ever met that guy.

You don't have to shoot them in the legs, just not in the head. Once they go down you just don't shoot them any more and they will hobble away. Or stop being a pussy and shoot them in the head.

Apparently, like San Andreas and Vice City before it, some tracks from the GTA IV soundtrack will be removed from the game at the end of the month due to licenses expiring...

Not specific details other than "a lot of music" will be removed on the 26th of April.

Fucking Schweine! Nooooooooo!

Seriously though, so many essential tracks have been removed that it can't fail to have a detrimental effect on the atmosphere of the game. Sad.

If anyone knows ways around this and for the other GTAs that have suffered the same fate I'd appreciate a link or what have you.

Can't you install your own music like you could in the previous titles? Or is it more to put them into the radio stations playlist again?

I can see someone modding the game to fix it but Rockstar seem to have iffy views on what is allowed with mods these days.

Yeah you can add your own, but it all goes into a dedicated 'your music' station rather than the original stations they were on in the game.

They've done it to all the 3D GTAs afaik, at some point I'm sure someone has figured out how to restore the tracks by now. I just haven't had the time to research it properly.

It's quite annoying to say the least, like I say it basically alters the whole vibe of the game and while I understand the licensing reasons behind the removal I find it's akin to the whole Greedo shoots first bullshit.
