    Today, I figured it'd be nice to install and play GTA: IV on my MacBook. Well, too bad. It hardly works because the game said I only had 60 MB of VRAM :eek:

    I can't change the graphics AND the world is not loading. (all I see is water and some random objects)

    I have a 13" MacBook Pro, late 2011 (2.4 GHz i5, 8 GB RAM) with 512 MB VRAM in OS X. CanYouRunIt shows 1,4 GB VRAM in Windows 7 Ultimate (x64, SP1).

    I assume this problem is caused by the Intel HD 3000 graphics card, but installing new drivers didn't solve anything.


    Does anyone know a solution for this?

    GTA IV minimum requirement for processor is 2.4Ghz Dual-Core. I have a 2.8Ghz Dual-Core i7, and it ran like crap. GTA IV is very processor heavy. I also have a 1GB Video card, maybe because I was trying to run it in 1920x1080, I should have tried a lower resolution.

    I don't think your MBP can run that game sorry.

    I can just about get the game to run relatively smoothly on my Windows desktop with a 2.66Ghz C2D processer, 4GB of RAM, and a 1GB GPU. I wish I got it on the Xbox instead now.
