    "Rockstar Games has given owners of the Windows version of Grand Theft Auto IV a new title update, issuing a suite of bug fixes, tweaks, new options and new controller support.

    Probably most welcome to those of us sporting a PC that is brought to its knees by GTA IV are new graphics sliders, giving players the option of reducing the quality of the game's visual effects. Those "rendering optimizations" will likely help too.

    The latest update look to fix some of Grand Theft Auto IV's bugginess and crashes, meaning less time spent staring surprised at your desktop.

    There are lots of boring fixes as well, all of which can be perused at the official site."

    If your game is downloaded illegally, can you still patch it?

    EDIT: i'm trying it now, hope it works *crosses fingers*
    EDIT 2: ok it works, but to be honest, i don't see any improvement. then again, i was already running a patch that makes the game run on VERY low, so there's almost no lag anywayz.
