Yes, I am new to the community. Yes, I tried to use the search option.
But I could not find anything and I have come accross a problem I have not found anywere.
No mater when I go to TW@ internet cafe; the internet is all jumbled, pixelated, and generally screwed up... mostly I can read the text... but images and some text is just destroyed.

what is wrong?

***
Quick update...

I am asking because I have the PC version and I have read it was full of various problems, and I wonder if any one else has encourntered this and if they were able to fix it.

I havent experienced anything like that before. Maybe you should lower your game graphics.
Manic Maniac
That is just it... my graphis are at the lowest possible.
mainly because my laptop is garbage and I need a new one.

the screen res is 800x600
and everything is set to the absolute minimum.

I tried rasing it to 1024x768
but it made no difference

One. GTA4 isnt really meant for laptops. Two. If youre laptops shit then what do you expect?
Manic Maniac
I expect it to work since I am above the minimum requirments for the game... ergo... it should work.
I want to know if anyone out there has encourntered this glitch... I say glitch because the rest of the game works perfectly.
Manic Maniac
If I could please get some help,

No matter what settings I try it makes no difference.

To the community in general...
Has anyone ever come accross this problem?
If so... how did you fix it?

TreeFitty
Never heard of it before. Only found one similar case on Google from back in MAy but no answer for it. Did you try re-installing the game?
The Awesome One
Do you have any mods?
Manic Maniac
I may have to try that, but my game disks are in the States and I am in Afghanistan right now... that is way I was looking for a fix first.
Thanks for the help any way.

If any one else on the forum has any ideas please let me know.

In the mean time I will keep searching the net.

Thanks all.

No, just standard install.

What I suggest you do is email R*, see what they say. If they dont respond speak to HEAT84, he on here. Best PMing him.
Manic Maniac
Thank you Captain.
That will be my next stop.

Manic Maniac
I will, Thank you for the help.

I would say it is a bug on the PC version. My PC's absolutely shite so that's why I stick to playing video games on my 360.
Manic Maniac
I exagerated my Macbook Pro is not that bad...

Intel Duo-Core 2.8Ghz
2 Gig Ram
256 ATI vid-ram
Running OS X lepard / windows 7

it does the job...
but I do need a new one.
But I am incline to agree with you... it must be a glitch. I am waiting for Rockstar to reply.

Anyone else with any further insite would be most welcomed.
DANNY B0Y
I have San Andreas on PC at the minimum requirements and the gameplay's absolutely shite. It's obviously the requirements - are you running any other GTAs on your PC?
The Awesome One
Are you running any other good graphics games on your PC?
Manic Maniac
As far as graphics and game play... all my other games are fine. Even in GTA 4, it's only the internet in Tw@ the rest of the game is 100% no problems.

I have the fallowing games installed and working fine (gta line)

Grand Theft Auto
Grand Theft Auto 2
Grand Theft Auto 3
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
Grand Theft Auto 4 (less the ingame internet)

I also have dozzens of other titles (rockstar and other) that all work fine.
GTA 4 in game internet is the only thing having issues.

Note: still waiting on a reply from Rockstar

But do the other titles have 5 star graphics like most games today?
Manic Maniac
Yes, I would say so.

Call of Duty 4: Modern WarFare
Kane & Lynch: Dead Men
F.E.A.R. 2

to name a few... they all work fine.

This problem is unique to GTA 4's in game internet.
TreeFitty
Can you watch the in-game TV without any issues?
Manic Maniac
Yes.
In-game TV and in-car criminal database has no problems... just the internet has this problem.
The Awesome One
Any word from R* yet?
Manic Maniac
Nothing yet... :(

Is it clear?
Manic Maniac
Yes... I consolidated all the questions that had been asked refering to it to maximize the discription of the problem, my hardware, what is unaffected or working fine, and the graphics settings that were tried and changed. I mashed it all into one discription.
The Awesome One
Still no word then?
TreeFitty
I'm sure he would have said so if he had. rolleyes.gif
Manic Maniac
No still not word... I think I will send it in again.

You should. If that doesnt work, why not try the R* hotline?
