Stunning Graphics IV

user posted image

INTRODUCTION:
Do you want a graphics modification that does not disappoint you because of ugliness, annoying bugs, or unfinished weathers? Well then, Stunning Graphics IV is for you! Stunning Graphics IV (SGIV) is a graphics mod with the goals of providing the user with visually beautiful graphics with or without ENB. I have been working on this mod for over four months. Hope you enjoy using this mod!

LATEST VERSION: Version 1.1
In this version, the ENB has configured much more, color and brightness have been adjusted, an effect file was added to the anti-aliasing version, and the mod has been tweaked in other minor ways.

LINKS:
Download Link #1

@shiek
Fonia5 has the best enb settings around!
Fonia5 and I decided to make a custom settings for my mod:)
He used his own settings and tweaked it for mine. Then I further tweaked it!
I also used his enbspriterays.bmp and enbspriterays.png and combined it with my enb items (cloud textures, enbspritelights.bmp,...) and it looks phenomenal!!!!!!!!
and sure i will make the image smaller:)

It isn't hard to install enbseries, literally all you have to do is drag a few files to the root of your GTA4 installation directory.


Anyway, I'm skeptical about this project. Show us more pics.

@OverTheBelow Sure more screenshots are comming! Much more and I will post the link by the end of today (eastern time-US)! Sorry but I am busy uploading the file to other sites. Also, by the way, I am going to link this forum to gtagarage.com and there are some screenshots over there:)
@shiek OverTheBelow is right. Enb installation is very simple. Just drag the files and you will be done! smile.gif

you can borrow my clouds, for your enb settings if it for personal use only!
but if you are going to distribute the mod, please give me credit!
My foggy weather has not been configured that much.

alright so...It looks pretty good:)
i like the last two pics
but the sun looks like crap
but the problem is caused by files from other graphics mods (this sun problem has happened to me 28140347610983471903874 times)
so to get rid of it, just reinstall gta 4 and install my graphics mod only:)
Also, I have been editing my configuration more and here are some pics:

alright so this sun is purely caused by the fact that you have parts of other graphic mods lingering around:(
best solution is to reinstall gta 4.
This problem has occurred to me countless times!
Here is a screenshot of how the sun looks with my mod!

Do you use any other texture mods ? What 'bout road textures ?

And can you list what FPS you get with your GFX Card for each version ? That way we can sorta gauge what it will run on our own smile.gif

My computer specs:
Nvidia 9500GT 1GB slightly overclocked
Intel Pentium Dual Core @ 2.6gHz
4 GB DDR2 ram 800mHz
500W OCZ Power Supply

Without ENB: I get 17-20 fps (higher than stock GTA IV) on 1080p with mid to high settings

With ENB and no Anti-aliasing: I get around 12-15 fps at 720p with everything set on mid to high settings

With ENB and Anti-aliasing: I get around 3-5 fps at 720p with everything set on mid to high. But at 800X600 I get roughly 6-10 fps:)
and I use fonia5's road textures: look on the description of this video for the link:

Hi, awesome mod.

But when i set antialising to true, then i can only see 1/4 of the screen, its like i need 4 screens to get a full image, very weird.
But i can see everything fine if i set it to false, but it crash the game pretty fast after playing a few min sad.gif

What can i do, this gfx mod looks so damn cool and cold be the reason why i start playing this game, im tired of no antialising, am i the only one having these problems?

Anti-aliasing causes the menu to become large...just hit enter and then the game starts. Then go into the ingame menu by hitting esc and everything will be fine:)
If you are playing on the correct patch without other graphics mods then the mod should work fine:)
