Freezing up the game

Recommended Posts

I don't know how to explain this but I'll try my best.

 

Whenever I play gta IV it works fine. But in about 10 minutes of gameplay the game freezes up but the audio still continues in the background. I can't force close it with task manager or alt+f4. 

 

Here are my currently installed mods: 

 

-LCPDFR 1.0

-Indicator Script

-Superman 

-vDH Police helper w/ tow service

-Braveheart Policing Script

-LAPD Car Pack (4 Cars)

-Traffic Flow

-Farnsworth Business Mod

-Country side Mountains V

 

The list may seem long but I'm sure the mods are not one of the issues because after I uninstalled and reinstalled gta, it still does it without mods. It just freezes up when starting a mission. 

 

My specs are:

 

Intel i7 4700MQ

NVIDIA GeForce 755M 2GB

8GB Ram

1TB Hard Drive

 

It MIGHT be the mods... still not sure...

Try to have a clean copy of the game and start it from there. It's most likely your mods, I always recommend people to install mods one by one and try the game.

Let's take a blind guess, i'll begin removing them one by one and see... I'm SURE it's not lcpdfr, braveheart, or vdh police helper because many people use them without trouble. Which one do you think it is? I removed farnsworth business mod and the freezing randomly stops, but whenever I finish "the cousins bellic" and move on to "it's your call" the game freezes when the mission begins...

LCPDFR is not officially supported with any third party mods. My wild guess it's the police helper world events. 

 

I'm not sure if I understand, so I can use the ambulance and tow service but I just have to disable world events? If it's possible that is...

Yeah, you can in the ini file. If you look here: 

[ EVENTS ]

TrafficEventsTimeout = 90
// Set timeout for creating traffic events (speeders will be created 2x more often).
// Set it to 0 to turn off traffic events.

WorldEventsTimeout = 210
// Set timeout for creating world events. Set it to 0 to turn off world events.

EnableOtherEvents = True
// Enable casual events like tourists asking for directions etc.

Change them so they are disabled.

Did not work. I'm beginning to think lcpdfr is the culprit here. No joke.

So what happens is that whenever I enter a mission given by anyone (roman, vlad, etc) I crash. No error message no nothing. Yes, I am running patch 1.0.7.0. Yes, I am running game as admin.

Why do you start a mission with LCPDFR

 

Disregard previous post. I found the culprit. The map mods are the ones interfering with campaign. I removed em and 4 hrs of non crash gameplay. BUT, now the scripts start "crashing"... Dunno why. It's a simple fix, I just reload a save. Thanks for your time.
