What is GTA4 update.img?




GTA4 update.img is a file that is located in the USRDIR folder of the game's installation directory. It is a compressed archive that contains various data files that are essential for running the game, such as textures, models, scripts, sounds, etc. The file is updated periodically by Rockstar Games to fix bugs, glitches, exploits, and improve performance and compatibility.


The purpose and function of update.img
