Not sure what it is. I don't have this problem in GTA IV(Version 1.0.0.4) anymore, but I do have this problem in EFLC.(separate install) It's like the water is a big shiny mirror that moves.

From what I have seen about this issue, probably only a patch will fix this. At least for most.

Make sure you revoke your IV activation.

sorry to sound like a noob but how is the water ment to look? because as far as i can tell from the pic with the boat and heli, the water looks fine. is it because it's missing the waves? i never really paid much attention to the water quality level of my game and now i wonder if mine is how it's ment to be.

thanks

I have got exactly the same problem. This seems to occur with all newer ATI cards. I am afraid there is nothing we can do about it until ATI or Rockstar offer a solution for this confused.gif

I'm having this same exact problem on Windows 7 64 Bit with an ATI 5850. Running latest patch and latest drivers.

Also suffering from the texture pop-ins.

Was there ever a solution offered for these issues?

No matter what settings , but when i set lower in-game and then to High quality and very high water quality looks fine for some seconds then back to this ugly quality -.-

Same with GTA IV version 1.0.0.4

Same bro
I have Sapphire Radeon HD5870 Stock 1GB DDR5 850M

The water just gets lesser waves and clear reflections

After that, i get 5 FPS Boost.

Each time I change the resolution in the Options setting, the waves mysteriously came back.
But after awhile it slowly disappears

By Right it should be like this

From what I have known

This is my experiment

1st, to get high quality water. Change ur resolution in the options [between 60HZ and 75HZ] you will get high water quality
user posted image

2nd, 1 minutes later, Lesser waves
user posted image

3rd, 2 minutes later, Even lesser waves, better reflections but worse water quality
user posted image
Test #2

Helicopter above sea
again set resolution

30 secs later...

1 minute later....

Test #3
Switch Water Quality & Reflection Resolution to "VERY HIGH"
user posted image

30 sec later... [no change same low quality shown]

Lagging near water means you havent patched the game to 1.0.7.0 version (or EFLC to 1.1.2.0), 1.0.6.0 has a bug that makes slowdowns near water edges, I would want to know what causes that bug, im guessing the new shadows.
