‘GTA 4’ mod and save the file deleted by Take-Two’s DMCA keystrokes

Take-Two sent DMCA claims to mod hosting site LibertyCity.net which forced grand Theft Auto 4 save files offline.

The website owners said two Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) complaints were sent to them by Take-Two Interactive. The mods were removed following complaints, which are GTA Advance PC Port Beta 2, The Lost and Damned unlocked for grand Theft Auto 4, GTA IV EFLC The Lost And Damned (65%).

The web page described the content as follows: “The GTA Advance PC Port Beta 2 is a fan remake of GTA Advance for GTA 3. The original 2D game was developed by Digital Eclipse and released by Rockstar Games in 2004. The game was released only on Game Boy Advance.

“The Lost and Damned Unlocked mod for grand Theft Auto 4 was uploaded in 2009. He swapped Niko with biker Johnny Klebitz, the protagonist of The Lost and Damned episode. The mod included his outfits, bikes, and weapon icons.

“The GTA IV EFLC The Lost And Damned is simply a save file with 65% of the story complete. It’s not even a mod, ”the post added.

Take-Two has already gone after the mods connected to GTA 3, GTA Vice City, and GTA San Andreas, shortly before the GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition has been announced. This leads some to expect a remaster of grand Theft Auto 4 to be announced soon.

However, the recent remaster received a lot of player reviews. The new title has been the subject of a bombarded review on Metacritic, and users are asking for refunds. Games scored 0.6 out of ten on PC, 0.5 on Xbox Series X, 1.0 on PS5, and 0.6 on Nintendo Switch, all as of November 14.

In other news, DICE will rename a Battlefield 2042 skin which refers to the Russian-Ukrainian war, which was included “unintentionally”.
