RivaTuner v2.21 has also improved the compatibility of the GTAIV game.

RivaTuner v2.21 can be downloaded by clicking http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=163

Version 2.21:

Minor bugfixes:
* FOURCC INTZ and RAWZ formats are no longer forcibly disabled on GeForce 6 and newer display adapters when closing the ?Textures? tab in Direct3D tweaks dialog. Please take a note that these formats are required for proper GTA IV functionality, so if you experience problems with missing textures in this game on NVIDIA GeForce 6 and newer display adapters then please try to open the ?Textures? tab and press the ?Defaults? button.
* Fixed ?Restore after suspended mode? option in low-level fan control tab, corrupted in the previous release due to multi-GPU related core changes.

What?s new:
* Updated databases for Detonator and ForceWare drivers. Added databases for ForceWare 180.60, 180.70 and 180.84.
* Added Catalyst 8.12 driver family detection.
* Added ?Enable FOURCC INTZ surfaces? and ?Enable FOURCC RAWZ surfaces? options to the ?Textures? tab of the Direct3D tweaks dialog.
* ?Restore after suspended mode? option in low-level fan control tab is multi-GPU oriented now. Now the option affects all display adapters in the system instead of currently selected display adapter only.
* ?Allow separate 2D/3D clock frequency adjustment? option is no longer provided when enabling driver-level hardware overclocking. The option is now hidden to reduce the amount of false bugreports posted by the beginners trying to disable 2D/3D clock frequncy then claiming that the hardware stays at extremely low boot clocks. Power users can still control this option via AllowMaxPerf registry entry.
* Extended list of detectable supported FOURCC formats in ?IDirect3D9 HAL adapter formats? diagnostic report category.
