For any other questions, or if you cannot read German and want to know what the hell it all says, post here.

/EDIT 30/11/08

Copied directly from the readme file that comes with the game:
CODE
6) KNOWN ISSUES
_______________________

NVIDIA:
General:
Occasionally the tree leaves will appear as square boxes.

6000/7000 series cards:
Cars do not show damage.
Changing the resolution or minimizing the game can sometimes result in visual
corruption. You can restart the game to resolve this issue.

ATI:
General:
A slightly visible diagonal line appears across the screen.

1900 or less series cards:
Cars do not show damage.

3600 series cards:
Can show very noticeable banding.

3870 X2:
Rain drops show up as bright white / red dots on screen

Crossfire game side bugs:
Interior and Night time shadows blink until approached.
When transitioning from interior to exterior the screen will pulse with different
intensities of light for a few seconds.
On occasion the water will jitter rapidly.

Take note people! Especially when you're about to purchase a new system or videocard just for this game. Seems a decent modern midrange NVIDIA card or better is the way to go.

Edit: Yougamers have added an application to see if a copy of GTA4 will play on your computer, remember though this is a rough guideline and there could be some problems, but it is a good benchmark to see if it will work on your computer.
