    Hi everyone! Just wanted to know if somone here is running GTA 4 smoothly on The Late 2008 MBP? I got it installed and all, but from what I know i requires some hacking to get things nice. If someone got a nice commandline.txt with the right options, please share! ;)

    And Btw. I still have the defualt drivers from the apple CD. I guees i need to update, and I would really appreciate if somone could help me find the what's best for the 9600M GT 256MB. I have searched alot on that driver to get, but Im really uncertain what to get. And i would really want something that activate Physx.

    Would be really great if somone could help me out. I think alot of people are trying to play GTA 4 on the MBPs, but from what I have seen, there are no help threads about this. So please help out :rolleyes:

    And great forum too :cool:

    I recently updated from 180.84 DOX Optimised to the 181.20 DOX Optimised Drivers and those have been the best for my MBP. As far as commandline.txt Im only using -availablevidmem 2.0 so I can tweak the in game settings a little higher. But that isn't saying much because honestly the game runs like crap on my SR and won't be much better on yours.

    You will need a quad core and a solid gaming graphics card with over 512MB VRAM for decent fps.

    FYI...Next time you should post this in the gaming section.;)

    I can confirm that 181.20 by dox are by far the best drivers I've used. This does not activate physx, you have to download it separately (I think you can get it from that site too).
