In fact, without building up relationships with myriad characters in the game, you're going to miss out on a lot of what the game intends for you to see.There are two different kinds of primary relationships in the game.After numerous retries to no avail, I sought to manually activate my GTA 4.

So my date was correct but since I had installed GTA IV before with no problems I thought it might be a glitch with the date synchronized server or something, so I changed my Windows date to august 2014 (probably any month and day of 2014 will do) before I installed GTA IV and I didn't have that problem anymore, it asked me for the serial code just like before with no issues at all.

You can change your windows time in the bottom right corner. It can be very frustrating not knowing what is stopping you from playing a game in pc. Just uninstall the game completely (also uninstall the save game data) then turn off your Windows Firewall and also turn off your Antivirus because firewall and antivirus do not allow some files to install.

The relationship aspect of Grand Theft Auto IV is perhaps one of the most nebulous areas of this epic game.

However, that shouldn't daunt you from building as many relationships as you can, because they happen to provide some of the deeper and more rewarding experiences Grand Theft Auto IV has to offer.

@idavini Hey I had the same problem exactly Release Date Check error after getting stuck in 30% even though I was connected to the Internet.

I tried multiple things as well Reinstalling, uninstalling over and over downloaded patches, etc and nothing worked, then I saw in a forum to make sure the date was correct in either the bios and the OS.The first type of relationship is any that Niko has with various females he encounters.These relationships take on a more light-hearted and pseudo-romantic tone and are completely optional for the most part.There are two females in the game you must date—Mallorie's 'friend' Michelle and the O'Reary boys' sister Kate—but other than that, dating is completely optional.However, there's a lot of fun to be had by partaking in the Liberty City singles scene.Usually, from the point of cellular contact, you're going to have an in-game hour to get to your date before she gets miffed for standing her up.
