Hey guys, yesterday i've played the xbox 360 version of GTA IV, and i realised that Niko Belic's clothes and face gets shiny, like as if its wet whenever its raining.
And i thought i didnt saw it in the PC version..so i tried playing GTA IV on the pc again today..and i've realised that Niko is not wet when its raining..there are no shiny effects on his body when it's raining on the PC version

Any of you facing the same problem?

here's my settings for the game:

Resolution: 1680x1050

Texture Quality: Medium
The rest of the options are set to Very High
and Render Detail is Highest.

Draw Distance : 50
Detail Distance : 50
Traffic: 50
Shadow density : 16

Definition: Off
V-sync: On


btw, i've used the Ultimate Graphic Tweak Number 1 that has the Motion Blur, HDR, and Smooth Shadows.

Hope someone can confirmed this with me...Thank u!

Strange, I have this effect in my game. Do you have both the patches installed? Could it be the Ultimate Graphic Tweak that's causing your problem?

Yep, he shines on mine too.

EDIT: I noticed your texture quality is medium, maybe it appears only on "high", since I have textures set as high and it works.

Nope, that can't be it since I have it set medium. The "high" option is not even available for me.

There's no wet effect for me too, very odd... I don't use any fixes, just the two official patches.

All settings at max.

GeForces from 8XXX to GTXs are SM 4.0, so that's not the case...

I usually don't see wet Niko in the rain since I don't really pay attention.
I do recall falling into water (on a dry day), and climbing out and noticing his wetness. I might go do it now to get a picture.

I've removed the motion Blur...but still no wet effects on Niko...i'm using the latest Nvidia 182.06 drivers...dunning in both single and multiple card give me the same results...this is starting to get annoying!

I just checked, I have no wet effects in the rain or after swimming.
My textures are on Medium, didn't try High. None of the other graphics settings effected it, though.

Here's the wet one.

Maybe it's not perfectly visible here since I recently changed to darker clothing, but I think you can still see it is wet.

It looks more "wet" when Niko wears a jacket, but I was too lazy to go change my clothes, lol.
