    Hey,

    I just installed GTA 4 and I cannot adjust texture quality...it just won't let me change this...everything else is changeable :/
    I use Razor 1911 Crack

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Changing the texture quality to higher uses a lot of VRAM, so it's possible you just don't have enough. What are your specs?

    where I'm from
    don't set it too high beyond your spec.
    btw, memory leak is unavoidable. damn...

    I have 512 MB Vram and it has enough free
    graphics card is a 9600 GT and processor is a pentium D 830 @ 3,2 Ghz and 1 GB Ram (yeah lol [​IMG])
    I can play it with most things on medium to high nearly lag free, so I don't think those are spec problems :/

    Hm, I'm surprised your CPU works so well, it's way below the minimum spec. But yeah, weird, does the link that updowners gave you help?

    well the Link is unavaible because of some limit, but I guess that's this VRam hack, but I should at least be able to change it to average...not even high :/ if I change it it just jumps back in the same moment

    and yeah this Pentium D isn't as bad as I thought =D my PC is now 3,5 years old and just got this new graphics card + HDD and I can play a lot of games on all max (CoD 4+5, Mirrors Edge, DMC 4, Need for Speed undercover, Left 4 Dead + more, but I haven't got them by now)
