Default GTA IV: FATAL ERROR RC20 - Please reinstall the game

Every now and then i get this CTD... i have reinstalled the game. I swear, with all these errors it's like they are trying to get you to buy a console.

Anyway, what's the fix for this error? I have reinstalled the game, my windows is all updated, same with my drivers. This happened the first time after i installed an extra 2gb of ram. could this be the issue?

All i noticed after installing more ram was that crysis didn't lag when i turned around, and the levels loaded faster.

I ran a memtest after i got the ram sticks in properly (this mobo is fussy with how pout ram sticks in) no errors turned up.

From what i can find out...RC20 Error means: Invalid resource detected - Please re-install the game...but like you said you have!!!!

Have you recently updated your graphics drivers? If so Uninstall them and roll back a version....see if this helps?

Heres the official error code list

I'm using the same drivers i did on vista, catalyst 9.11. Not only am i getting that error, but random freezes as well. even with clip capture off. If it matters i'm using the commandline.txt with -norestrictions and -percentvidmem100. I'm also using patch 1.0.4

This game never should have been released in this state.

I think you may be trying to run the game on higher settings that your system can handle....512mb of Vram is simply not enough for GTA IV....even 1Gb isnt enough to max it..

Id take out that -norestrictions,...thats why the limit was put there in the first place

I think those settings are just too high for a 4850 with 512mb,Gta iv is very GPU demanding!

Just try removing that Norestrictions and see if the game starts.

it does start and i can play fine with those settings. the problem is that it randomly freezes (audio still plays) or crashes to the desktop with that RC20 error.

I'll try without norestrictions and see how long i can go.
