  I      Introduction
           New tech, new features, thanks, personal info
  I finally had a new computer built (early 2014):
  Case: NZXT Phantom 530
  MOBO: Asus Sabertooth Z87
  CPU:  Intel Core i7-4770k
  CPU cooler: Noctua NH-U12S with an extra Noctua NF-F12 PWM fan
  PSU: Seasonic Platinum-860
  Memory: Mushkin Enhanced Redline Ridgeback 2,133mhz
  SSD (OS): Samsung 840 EVO 500GB
  OS: Windows 7 64 bit
  HDDs (storage): Western Digital Black 3 TB WD3003FZEX and 2 TB WD2003FZEX
  Optical drive: LG WH14NS40 Internal Blu-ray Writer
  GPU: ASUS STRIX GeForce GTX 970 (April 2015)
  Issues with GTA IV showing video cards with over 2GB as under spec
  Create a text file named ‘commandline.txt’ in the main GTAIV folder and put
the following statement inside it:
  -availablevidmem 2.0
  If that doesn"t work, try increasing the number to one of the following:
  -availablevidmem 3.0
  -availablevidmem 4.0
  -availablevidmem 5.0
  -availablevidmem 6.0
  Note that these command lines can be added immediately after the last quota-
tion mark in the target parameter of the program shortcut on your desktop.
Right click the file and select Properties.  Under the shortcut tab go to Target
--the location of the file within quotation marks.  Modify the Target adding the
command line variables after the last quotation mark.
  Press Apply and start your game via the shortcut.
  If you are using Steam, please try Properties of game > Launch Options > Add:
-nomemrestrict -norestrictions
  The 3 TB WD HDD will initialize as a nearly 2 TB HDD with an unusable parti-
tion.  To make full use of the 3 TB WD HDD strictly as a storage disk (you
haven"t installed Windows on it):
  Click Start, right click My Computer or Computer, click Manage, go to Storage
and Disk Management.  Go to your 3 HDD, right click on the usable section (it
has a blue line on the top of the usable section; the unusable partitioned part
has a black line over it) and click Delete Volume--click Yes.  The blue bar be-
comes black as well.  Right click the number/name of the HDD at the very left
side of the menu--to the left of the black bar--and click Convert to GPT Disk.
The black bars are now a solid black bar.  Right click the area with a black
bar over it and click New Simple Volume and a New Simple Volume Wizard appears.
Click through the pages then click Finish.  When it"s done formatting your com-
puter will recognize the drive and let you make the most use of it.
  (Thanks to Cammern--see her video at the next link.)
  To have more graphics resources when using the 4600 GPU of the Intel Core i7-
4770k CPU (no separate GPU):
  Press Del about twice a second during boot to go to the BIOS.  Go to Advanced
> Advanced > System Agent Configuration > Graphics Configuration > iGPU Memory.
Write down the number in case you want to revert to it if you add a separate
GPU and let it handle memory for graphics.  Use the drop down box to select
1024 MB.  Save and Exit.
  Dial back anti-aliasing in favor of post-processing FXAA or such--downgrade
texture filtering to 4X anisotropic.
  In the game turn off V Sync.

  The food and exercise system, and Muscle/Fat/Stamina/Lung Capacity/weapon/ve-
hicle stat building, of SA are gone and won"t interrupt stunts anymore.  Food
is fortunately back to being an optional way to increase Health.  The "still-
likedressingup" code still isn"t back, but clothes changes are still a supple-
ment to dating.
  The "San Andreas" dating system is back as a system of male and female
Friends.  Beyond building up a Like stat with them you can let them interrupt
to suggest Bowling, Darts, etc., then call back to cancel the plan without a
penalty or put Niko"s phone on Sleep mode and watch their Like stat go down.
Fortunately, it was so unpopular it became optional in "V."
  The graphics continue the SA concern for realism over graphics that are fun
to look at, but do it up better regarding detail and the shading of things in
relationship to each other, etc., probably because "IV" doesn"t stretch what
the graphics engine can do for the size of the map like SA did.  Night scenes
should still probably be avoided for You Tube videos, but they aren"t as murky
on You Tube as those for SA.  It"s still pretty brown and grey compared to
"Vice City."  I guess the higher res pleases people that their new video cards
are working but it"s gone from something I"ve never seen the like of before to
something you see most anywhere you look.  The VC way was more fun to explore
for me.,2049.html
  I"ve read that the tint covering the scenery is more VC-like for "The Ballad
of Gay Tony."  (I hope it"s nicer for the colors I used for the "57 Chevy mod
offered in "Glenster"s GTA IV Starter Package.")
  Sound effects, like those for using pickups, continue the SA trend of sound-
ing mechanical.
  Character motions are more lifelike with the Euphoria game engine.
  The lead character can not only use cover but you can press a key to have him
shoot from behind cover.  (I"d remap to key to move it away from W so I didn"t
accidentally press it all the time.)  The protagonist can not only shoot a sub-
machine gun but a handgun and use thrown weapons from vehicles.
  The "camera" used when the lead character uses vehicles is the same as it was
in "San Andreas."  It may initially point at the ground or to the side until
the vehicle is driven a while or until after you have the "camera" glance to
the side or backward.  I"d still prefer the "Vice City" method of having it
point forward when you press acceleration and just add the "San Andreas" method
of holding down the RMB to aim it elsewhere.
  I"d rather not have to keep using the mouse to aim the "camera" forward.  I"d
like my right hand free to press lean forward and lean back keys for "cycle
stunts.  It should at least be an option.
  At the airport, the jets aren"t usable vehicles but the red radar dishes
twirl again, and propellers in motion look good again.  The little dots of
light in the sky are still there and they"ve been joined by little dots of light
on the roads.  Markers look like upside-down insignias for a U.S.A. Army PV2
Private or Corporal.
  The lead character can"t snipe seagulls like he can in "Vice City," but he
has to kill 200 Flying Rats (pigeons).  Ammu-Nations have been replaced with
Gun Stores and the trunk of Little Jacob"s car.
  The Skimmer weenies are back putting out videos of wrecks and calling them
stunt movies.  Loop de loops with a motorcycle are about as easy to do as
wheelies with a VC Sanchez, so they do a lot of those, too.  The buildings in
"IV" have more ledges and fire escapes to land a stunt on, anyway.
  They"re also bothering people about the controls for flying vehicles (basic-
ally the same as for motorcycles): "Is there something I can buy for $150 so I
can fly better?"   What difference could it make to use something else for Up,
Down, Left, Right, Lean forward, and Lean backward?  "Is there somthing with
just Up and Left?  I could fly in wider and wider circles and bail."  No.  Go
  A car might drive under a truck like a spongy Nerf vehicle, so it looks like
some things about SA handling have been carried over to "IV"--probably for
Skimmer weenies that wreck into things more often.  It feels like driving
around in molasses in "IV" probably for the same reason.
  Niko can ride window washer lifts to roofs and climb ladders.
  Un-check the box for "Missions" > "Start" and, at "Points of Interest," check
"Sight," "Building with Interior," and "Interactive Area," one at a time so the
map isn"t so crowded, at the next link to have the map display icons.  Click an
icon to see information about the location.
  Also see "Secrets" > "Funny Signs" for the same map.
  Bribes and Firetruck and Ambulance missions are gone.  Pay "n" Sprays are
back although you need to have Niko be out of the sight of law enforcers to use
one to get rid of a wanted rating.  If a vehicle is upside down and not on fire,
it won"t explode.  Car washes can clean Niko"s vehicle from the start of the
game (see the three preliminary sections for locations).
  Online multiplayer is now provided by Rockstar.  The PC version uses Games
for Windows Live.  (Disclaimer: I provide information about multiplayer but
haven"t used it.)
  24 in-game hours takes longer now--48 real time minutes instead of 26.  An
hour in the game is two minutes in real time.

  Personal info:
  I was born about a month after "Roll Over, Beethoven" came out.
  I live in an apartment in Pittsburgh, PA, and was raised in a lower middle-
class house in Bridgeville (which I liked better), PA, about eight miles SSW of
Pittsburgh, where I lived till I was about 35.
  Bill Winstein won the Golden Quill Award for newspaper excellence in 1971,
and his art and cartoons were in the Baseball, Football, and Basketball Halls
of Fame, and a number of local bars and barbershops, like Evangelista"s.  It
was cool to watch him draw, and he knew a lot more of the cooler comedians and
movie stars than the other kids parents (you have to imagine an eight year old
going around thinking, "Well, they"re just kids, they don"t know....")  And my
Mom, who was a volunteer at the local library and hospital, had such and inven-
tive sense of gentle silliness and sing-song voice delivery I can"t imagine any-
one imitating it.
  Something about them was passed over by the world it didn"t mesh with, and
was passed on to me.
  My Dad was born in 1914, and my Mom was born in 1923.  Their childhoods lived
on in them, and live on in me.  And that"s bigger than anything in these two PC-
choking walk-throughs of mine combined.

  The sax-playing busker has the voice of Walter Houser, father of Sam and Dan
Houser, in "IV" and Kene Holliday in TLaD and TBoGT. (Thanks to 123iamking)  The
message boards say it"s easier to find him playing sax and accepting donations
in "IV," harder to find in TLaD, and hardest (impossible?) to find in TBoGT.  He
may be found at the boardwalk in Firefly Island, Broker, one of the two Super-
star Cafйs in Algonquin, in the subway at Wardite St. and Frankfort Ave, Algon-
quin, the park at the south end of Algonquin, Middle Park, Algonquin, etc.

  Before there was GTA, there was Roadside America
  2008 Golden Joystick awards--"GTA IV" won the BBC 1Xtra Soundtrack of the
Year award, the Arvato Digital Services Xbox Game of the Year, and Rockstar
North won the UK Developer of the Year  award.  The GTA series has
won a Golden Joystick award for seven years in a row.

  Real places the game locations are based on are at the next three links.

  According to
  Liberty City is four of the five boroughs of New York: Algonquin (Manhattan),
Bohan (the Bronx), Broker (Brooklyn), and Dukes (Queens).  Alderney is a part
of New Jersey.  Each borough has its own island except Broker and Dukes, which 
share one.

  The Trump International Hotel and Tower (with globe) is on the west side of
Frankfort Ave. and the north side of Nickel St., Middle Park West, Algonquin.
  1500 Broadway/Times Square Studios is represented on the north side of Jade
St. and east side of Burlesque, the Triangle, Algonquin, by a nameless building
with a curved FlyUS LCD display, an LED sign/ticker display, and a Cluckin"
  The skyscraper top of it reminds me more of the Seagram Building.  A couple
others in the area are similar but the top of this one is the most like it.
  The Paramount Theater is represented in Star Junction, Algonquin, on the west
side of Denver-Exeter Ave. and north side of Iron St. by the Canyon Entertain-
ment building which features a Superstar Cafй, an ad for Love Fist, and a work-
ing clock on the roof.
  The Morgan Stanley Building, 1585 Broadway, is represented in the game on the
north side of Lorimar St./west side of Burlesque, Star Junction, Algonquin, by a
skyscraper with a corner sign that says "(Cooper?) Jackson" and with several
moving LED tickertape signs.
  One Times Square aka 1475 Broadway, the New York Times Building, the New York
Times Tower, or simply the Times Tower (the place where they hold the New Years
Eve ball drop), is represented at the south side of Iron St., east side of Den-
ver-Exeter Ave., and west side of Burlesque, Star Junction, Algonquin.
  The Thomson Reuters Building, 3 Times Square, is represented on the south side</span><span id="faqspan-2">
of Kunzite St. and east side of Burlesque, Star Junction, Algonquin.
  Times Square Tower, 7 Times Square, is represented on the west side of Colum-
bus Ave. and south side of Iron St. by a skyscraper with orange lit up letters
for THE DAILY GLOBE on the sides and the Vinewood Bar & Grill at the base in The
Triangle, Algonquin.
  The Libertonian museum in southeast Middle Park, Algonquin, is like the Metro-
politan Museum of Art except there aren"t dinosaur fossils at the Metropolitan.
The Libertonian can be entered any time on the south side.
  The Washington Square Arch is represented by the arch over the west end of the
Middle Park segment of Quartz St.
  The eastern side of The Beresford is shown in simplified form north of Ruby
St. on Frankfort Ave. across from the west side of Middle Park, Algonquin.  To
the south of Ruby St./Frankfort Ave. is a twin towered apartment building which
represents various similar apartment buildings near The Beresford.
  The Hearst Tower, which looks like Bucky Fuller"s accordion museum, is repre-
sented at the south side of Jade St. and east side of Frankfort Ave., The Trian-
gle, Algonquin.
  Time Warner Center, a twin-tower building bridged by an atrium containing
shops, is represented by one tower on the south side of Nickel St. and west side
of Frankfort Ave., Purgatory, Algonquin.
  The Chrysler Building is represented by the Zirconium Building on the north
side of Jade St. and east side of Columbus Ave., Lancet, Algonquin.
  The Helmsley Building is represented (near the MetLife/GetaLife Building) by
the skyscraper on the south side of Jade St. east of Columbus Ave., Easton, Al-
gonquin.  The base of the GTA 4 version has a big statue of the upper part of
Poseidon/Neptune facing Jade St.
  One Financial Square aka 32 Old Slip is represented in the game by a skyscrap-
er with a rooftop helipad on the west side of Privateer Rd. north of the west
end of the Broker Bridge, Fishmarket South, Algonquin.  (The site
calls it "Fife Palace.")
  Part of the World Financial Center aka Brookfield Place--Two World Financial
Center (round dome roof), Three World Financial Center (pyramid roof), the New
York Mercantile Exchange, and the Winter Garden Atrium--are represented by WTF
Center between the Calcium St. to Emerald St. section of Union Drive West and
the coast, Castle Garden City, Algonquin.
  The Standard Oil Building of NYC aka 26 Broadway is represented in a simpli-
fied smaller form at the north side of Barium St. and east side of Denver Ave.,
City Hall, Algonquin.
  1 New York Plaza is represented in the game by a single tower tall skyscraper
with a waffle iron design (like the dash of a "57 Chevy Bel Air) on the north
side of South Parkway east of Albany Ave., The Exchange, south Algonquin.
  Harborside Plaza 10 of Jersey City, New Jersey, is represented by the sky-
scraper that has flaps that extend beyond the roof on the east side of the
north end of the southwest-northeast segment of Rand Ave. and southeast of the
east end of Mahesh Ave., Alderney City, at the east coast of Alderney.
  The High Line, pre-renovation, is represented by the abandoned overhead rail
track in Westminster and The Meat Quarter, Algonquin.
  "Juilliard School"s Alice Tully Hall (pre-2009 renovation)" is represented "at
the intersection of Manganese Street and West Way, behind the Time Warner Center
lookalike. Like the Alice Tully Hall, the GTA IV rendition is linked to a large
art gallery, known as the Randolf Art Center (in turn a replication of the Lin-
coln Center for the Performing Arts), in neighboring Middle Park West. Both
buildings are connected via an elevated walkway over Nickel Street."
  The abandoned casino indicated on the radar/maps by the dead end road north of
Beaverhead Ave., Westdyke, Alderney, is like the Carousel House and Casino, 1150
Boardwalk (Asbury Ave. & Ocean), Asbury Park, New Jersey.
  The tunnel that represents the Lincoln Tunnel in NY is called the "Booth Tun-
nel" in Liberty City and connects Algonquin and Alderney.  John Wilkes Booth was
the assassin of Abraham Lincoln.  (Thanks to NZskep)
  Most Bohan streets are named after prisons: Alcatraz Ave., Rykers Ave., Sing
Sing Ave., San Quentin Ave., Guantanamo Ave., Wallkill Ave.,  Leavenworth Ave.,
Altona Ave., Lompoc Ave., Greene Ave., and Beaumont Ave.
  Some Bohan streets are named after dance moves: Worm St., Caterpillar St.,
Spin St., Valdez Ave., Turtle St., Elbow St., Windmill St., Downrock Loop, and
Applejack St. (Applejack is a Lindy Hop move).
  South Bohan is described in the game as the birthplace of hip-hop.
  Darkhammer St.: "Darkhammer is the mini-boss fought in the Snowpeak Ruins, the
fifth dungeon in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess."
  "Coxsack" (Ave.) may be a goof on "Cossack."
  Meadows Park is based on Flushing Meadows Park, Queens, New York.  The Mono-
globe represents the Unisphere and the Pavillion Towers represent the New York
State Pavilion.  The building north of the Monoglobe represents a smaller Queens
Museum and the statues between the building and the Monoglobe are reworkings of
Donald De Lue"s Rocket Thrower.
  Some of the streets in Broker are named after the Iroquois Confederacy--a na-
tive American coalition made up of 6 different tribes: Mohawk, Cayuga, Seneca,
Oneida, Onondaga and Tuscarora.  Their democratic government may have influenced
the drafters of the US constitution though how is debated.  There"s an Iroquois
Ave. in the same area.  (Thanks to Dillinger8: "Pretty much the coolest thing to
me since I grew up on the Onondaga reservation.")
  Many streets in Broker are named after things related to the American frontier
aka Old West or Wild West.,_South_Dakota
  A few in Alderney are areas related to the Old West, too--Big Horn, Owl Creek,
and Beaverhead.
  Several of the Broker street names related to the American frontier are also
Beatles references: Ringo, Starr, and James (Paul McCartney).  In Dukes at the
East Borough Bridge there"s a (George) Harrison St.  It"s a bit tenuous but in
John Lennon"s book "In His Own Write" is a story called "Treasure Ivan" featur-
ing Large John Saliver, a goof on Long John Silver, and in Alderney there"s a
Long John Ave.  The Dakota, where John lived in his last years, is represented
at the west side of Frankfort Ave. and the south side of Pyrite St., Middle Park
West, Algonquin.  In Paul McCartney"s "Penny Lane" there is a fireman with an
hourglass and in "IV" there are firemen.  I dunno.
  Many east-west streets in Algonquin are named after minerals--some of them
gemstones: Amethyst, Barium, Calcium, Diamond, Emerald, Feldspar, Garnet, Hema-
tite, Iron, Jade, Kunzite, Lorimar, Manganese, Nickel, Obsidian, Pyrite, Quartz,
Ruby, Silicon, Topaz, Uranium, Vauxite, Wardite, and Xenotime.
  Many north-south streets in Algonquin are named after American cities: Albany,
Bismarck, Columbus, Denver, Exeter, Frankfort, and Galveston.
  Eight streets in Bohan are named after prisons: Leavenworth Ave., Alcatraz
Ave., Sing Sing Ave., Guantanamo Ave., Attica Ave., San Quentin Ave., Folsom
Way, Rykers Ave. (from Rykers Island prison in Marvel Comics), and Joliet Ave.
(Thanks to Superjay, and thanks to designmafia for adding that "Rykers" refers
to a real prison--Rikers)
  Several streets in mid-Alderney are named after cult leaders: Koresh (for Da-
vid Koresh), Hubbard (for L. Ron Hubbard), Jonestown (for Jim Jones), Mahesh
(for Maharishi Mahesh Yogi), Rael (for Claude Vorilhon aka Rael), Myung (for Sun
Myung Moon), Lyndon (for Lyndon LaRouche), and Asahara (for Shoko Asahara).
  A couple of the stained glass windows on the Leftwood Church on the north side
of Bridger St./west side of Sacramento Ave. have an image of an exploding vol-
