Hi everyone im new to steam and decided to buy GTA4 and EFLC from steam and when i installed them my game kept crashing with missing textures and game hangs.

After reading all the problems, many of you seem to be having the same kind of problems. They are definitely game related problems and not graphics card or memory related.

This is what worked for me:

When in your steam libary right click the gta4 game name, then select [properties], then click [Local Files] and then finally click [Verify integrity of game cache].

This will do a scan of your complete game (it will take a few mins so be patient) after the scan i had files that had an error and then steam d/l (updated) the game with new replacement files.

Don't worry about the size of the file that it is d/ling as one of the files i d/l for EFLC was over 800mb!!!

Once it has d/l and updated the game run the procedure again. I had to do 3 scans of my GTA4 game untill it was 100% complete.

After i did this my game ran so smoothly and all the places where my game crashed before just didn't happen anymore and all the missing textures were solved.

My specs are:

Asus P5q3 motherboard.
Intel Q550 2.8gb cpu.
Kingston hyperx ddr3 1333mhz X 4gb
Nvidia 8800GTX with an arctic cooler.

Hope this helps your problems it has definitely solved mine.
