Grand Theft Auto IV Online Still Working as of July 16, 2019

So if you want to play online now you know it still works on Latest Patch


Grand Theft Auto IV: Suprise Patch 1.0.8.0 Mod / ASI / Script Compatibility
Fortunately for us, Rockstar updated the game and it's LaunchGTAIV Social Club system that half worked half malfuctioned even when properly setup on Windows 8 / 8.1 / 10. It is now tied to your XboxLive gamertag through the social club website and you have the ability to link it when you launch the game as opposed to the old social club exclusive login screen which used to only work 5-15% of the time depending how fast you could put in your credentials and press play. This means that Online works properly for all the people who didn't go through the struggle of finding exactly what files and microsoft libraries were responsible for causing their game not to work with or without mods in the first place for the past five or so years. If you're looking for some Vanilla GTA IV action through Xbox Live the average user can easily set the game up and play now, so theres that I guess which means there are lots of new and old users online.

However this came at a cost which I also didn't intially realize until I did some searching and playing around with my files. Mods that require scripthook / an asi loader don't work with this new patch. x live less works in disabling Xbox Live which is what I primarily use for mods if I'm just playing single player for things like Arrest Warrant. However YAASIL and other asi / script loaders crash the game and function improperly. x live less appears to not load any ASI mods including script hook meaning in order to play with these mods you're going to need to downgrade to the 1.0.7.0 exe's of the game. This is all you need to do as far as I know and there is no annoyances with social club anymore even with doing this, however I haven't tested if modified games work online when properly configured with indentical mods on all involved PC's for or if online even works at all anymore in 1.0.7.0 patch. They did before this all happened because my buddies and I typically run games with Realistic Handling and my custom weapons / pedestrian settings in multiplayer without any problems. I wouldn't be suprised if it no longer worked flawlessly anymore which means we're going to have to wait till either Rockstar (unlikely) releases a fix for that portion of the modding or if modders just update their ancient 1-5 year old creations (another unlikely scenario at this point with GTA V taking the reign now). With that being said, here are the 1.0.7.0 executables so you can download and test it yourself. They are from my computers backup of the original 1.0.7.0 installation with all fixes included to have the game work on Windows 10, whatever they may be I can't remember there was alot. Looking at the changelog you might miss out on a few new features like the fixed video card memory allocation bar and Windows 8 / 8.1 / 10 program compatibility but I am unsure of what is effected by doing this other than what is in the changelog. Just a compressed Dropbox link, let me know if you discover anything else about the points I discussed or if there was anything I ended up missing. The decision for right now from what I can gather is to play 1.0.8.0 online / offline with minimal mod support / straight up vanilla or to downgrade the game to 1.0.7.0 for offline / or minimal online support. For me I can't play the game without my script hook mods they're too essential in my opinion, but to each his own.

Patch 1.0.8.0 GTA 4 fixes:
- Added error code "WTV270" to indicate a problem with connecting to Windows Live Sign in Assistant / Games for Windows Live Servers.
- Added Windows 8, 8.1, and 10 to compatible OS check.
- Added Display Controller image in Controller Configuration.
- Fixed a bug which made completing "Out of Commission" mission impossible when frame rate exceeds 60fps.
- Fixed a bug with the "Resource Usage" indicator on graphics cards with more than 2GB of VRAM.
- Fixed a bug that restricted settings changes when using modern video cards.
- Fixed a bug with the map crosshair on certain resolutions.
- Fixed a bug with text scrolling in "Brief" Menu.
- Fixed "drawlist overflow" crash.
- Minor performance optimizations.

I also included x live less and scripthook for those that want the ones I know for sure work. Make sure you backup everything I'm not responsible if anything goes wrong

You can just use .sco for mods. Like nathans protection.sco, or major distribution mod loaders, no need for the 1.0.7.0, but some scripthook mods on downgraded 1.0.8.0 to 1.0.7.0 online creates ur game as a mod only match where only other scripthook users can join. There are ways to get around this, but .sco mods are just easier and require less messing with files.
