Lets Start Grand Theft Auto 4 without Graphic Card.
Step 1: Step 1: Possible to Have GTA IV Without Graphic Card?
If you ask me, i say Yes.
GTA IV always configures your PC to check the requirements, especially the Graphic Card.
So, I too had the same problem, there was just 96 video memory remaining, i.e,(No Graphic Card).
So, by some efforts, at last, i got it & i will show it to you, as a Tutorial.
Step 2: Step 2: Lets Begin!!!
First, you should be able to start the game with a crack & patch or by Activation Key.(From your CD).
So, Go to the GTA IV directory: (default)
C:/Program Files/Rockstar Games/Grand Theft Auto IV/
And follow me..
Step 3: Plan
In the folder, check whether you have a file named as:
If not, create one text document, not using any Microsoft Office Word, or any other.
Right click, go to "New", and Text Document.
Name it the same, "commandline.txt"
Step 4: Plan 2
Then open the one you created or the existing one, commandline.txt
paste this into the Text Document:
-height 480 -refreshrate? 75 -novblank -texturequality 1 -renderquality 0 -viewdistance 0 -detailquality 0 -shadowdensity 0 -nomemrestrict -availablevidmem 4.0 -norestrictions -percentvidmem 100 -noprecache -safemode -fullscreen -framelimit 100 -Noswapdelay -Managed -Usedirectinput -Waterquality 0 -Waterreflectionquality 0 -Reserve 0.1 -ReservedApp 0.5 -Forcer2vb -DX10 / High -Minspecaudio -Shadowresolution 640 -Reflectionresolution 640 -No_3GB
