Okay, so I bought IV from steam a couple of days ago and of course I started modding it, I have always done and I always will.
The reason I bought it was to be able to play online with friends and such, oh well.
The only mod that I want to use really is the Simple Native Trainer which has always worked in the past when I have used a pirated copy of GTA.
Now, the game refuses to start when I add dsound.dll to the root directory. I have also tried xlive.dll and it refuses to start with that as well and I do not want to use it either because it disables the online mode which is why I bought the game. Lol.
I always run in administrator mode since I have modded before and know that a little thing like that can make a huge difference
I have tried many different things and I always launch from "LaunchGTAIV.exe"
The weird thing is that it did work yesterday and I was able to play for a couple of hours too.
Does anyone have any sort of fix to this problem? I have ran out of ideas and I am sick of trying.
