After being sent to the hosting site, PC players are waiting to find ways to download a popular Grand Theft Auto 4 mod compilation.
Definitive Edition, a Grand Theft Auto IV, is a program that included a slew of modifications that aimed to enhance and improve the game to be compatible with modern PCs (thanks, PC Gamer).
After Microsoft shut down the game, Rockstar said the game''s archaic games for Windows Live DRM. This also had an unfortunate effect of limiting access to online multiplayer and leaderboards, which was run through the GFWL backend.
Apart from these changes, little adjustments were made to make the game better on modern computers, which is where the modding community intervened.
Unfortunately, GTA modders have had a rough time, with Take-Two Interactive releasing takedown notices on several projects in the past years.
Given Take-Two''s historically stringent protection of intellectual properties, it''s not clear who issues the takedown notice for this particular project. However, Mediafire, a hosting site, does not disclose who issues complaints. Despite Take-Two''s historically stringent protection, the company''s intellectual property laws are a huge concern.
Good news guys. Appreciated if u got ppl to raise awareness / spread the word as soon as possible.I knew this day was coming. We are with a DMCA by Rockstar (I suppose) on our GTAIV DE patch. Well, I suppose we need to remove all GTAIV related stuff from the website. :/ pic.twitter.com/WUjKRluhXl
Despite the significant security breach that led to the huge footage leak of the next GTA title, Take-Two may have more reason to be cautious.
