Rockstar has finally released a second patch for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV. The patch is 32 MB and addresses a wide range of issues which are all listed on the R* website. Download it here and install it manually, or install it automatically by signing onto LIVE the next time you load up the game.
The patch provides some new options in the graphics menu.
"Today we released patch version 1.2 for Grand Theft Auto IV on the PC. A variety of fixes and enhancements were applied, including new sliders in the graphics menu for "Water Quality", "Shadow Quality", and "Reflection Resolution" to grant players more freedom to customize graphical settings as they see fit. Additionally, as a result of the patch we had to disable the default setting for direct input device support. To re-activate your supported gamepad simply enter the commandline, "-usedirectinput". The patch also addresses a variety of issues including, but not limited to, graphical optimization; bugs introduced with the release of patch 1; multiplayer and video editor fixes; and security updates. Please visit http://www.rockstargames.com/support/IV/PC/patch/index.html for specific information about the changes and supported DirectInput devices. We want to thank the GTA community for your continued support as we continue to improve GTA IV PC so that it is the best experience possible."
