A bought a new copy of GTA IV today, installed it and now I'm stuck on the release date check screen which never completes. It gets to 30%, then hangs for a few minutes, then fails. I have manually activated the game with the serial and unlock code. But this stupid release date check still won't let me play!

What do I do?

Did you try reinstalling it first? If so, give them a call and see what they say. Can't really do anything other than that.

Better resolution, better frame rate, gamepad support. What's wrong with the PC version to warrant you laughing infront of your computer? If you have no intentions of getting the 360 DLC, the PC version is by far the best.

Go ahead and play it then. Don't comment until you have played it.

I've got it on the PC, what a terrible, terrible version.

The irritating thing is that I downloaded a cracked version of GTA IV a while ago and it ran like a dream. Yet, when I buy a legit copy it doesn't work. The irony...
