Stalled Loading and Graphical Load-in fix

Starting the game with less RAM will correct the issue until the game is patched.

Launch Msconfig (Start>Run>Msconfig)

Click on the Boot tab. Choose Advanced Options.

Change the Maximum Memory setting to something less than 2000 megabytes. 1500 is a good beginning point

Restart your computer and launch the game.

If you're using XP and seeing the issue, the msconfig will have a Boot.ini tab and then under Advanced, you will need to lower the MAXMEM option.

This is not the permanent fix for this situation. We hope to get a patch to release as soon as possible.

Downgrading via msconfig to 2048mb of ram fixed everything for me on Vista Ultimate 64bit. Fixed the endless loading bug and had no crashes in 6hours playing time.



-Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit
-Asus P5N-T Deluxe
-Intel Core 2 Quad 9550 ~2,8ghz
-Evga Geforce GTX280 Superclocked
-4GB Corsair Ram (Dual Channel 800mhz)
-Creative X-FI Xtreme Gamer Fatal1ty Pro

Latest stable drivers for everything. No beta stuff.

Its good to know that there is a temporary fix, but I will not be reducing the amount of RAM I have. I spent £££££££££££ on my system, and I wont be reducing anything thank you very much!

Rockstar better get this working

This isn't a fix. It's a half @$$ work around.

Any word from Rockstar on a patch planned for Bully PC? For Steam or Retail version?
I have Retail, myself.

Any chance Retail version could be added to list of games Steam will accept for CD Keys to be allowed to also be used over Steam?

This has NOT worked for me.
None of the "fixes" have worked for me and I'm on the updated Steam version!

I have paid £17 and I want a game I can freakin' play!

This thread is over a year old, and the game has been patched since then. So far as I can tell, it still fails to work worth a frak for me, but supposedly you no longer have to reduce your usable RAM. Frankly, the game worked better for me when I had to mess with the RAM, since the patch my sound is buggered, the controls are even more sluggish, and the game crashes about every 10 minutes.

Rockstar's had a couple of years to fix this now, and haven't. They've demonstrated that they can't do a PC port to save their lives nowadays.
