Hello forum. I just wanted to say that I am no longer going to continue with Stunning Graphics IV because I am going off to college and I am way to busy as of right now to continue with the mod. Its been a pleasure modding with you guys especially DKT70, NaidRaida, j3smoove, and boxmonster who have helped me out greatly. This forum is filled with amazing settings and I wish you all the best with your settings because in the end it benefits me (I get to use your creations). So farewell, although I might visit this thread once in a while:) By the way, if anyone wants to continue the Stunning Graphics IV project, private message me! I would be happy to hand off what I have to you as long as you know what you are doing!
-Joe Jacob

wish the best for you joe ....
thanks for v2 cookie.gif cookie.gif cookie.gif

Is this the same thing as the iCEnhancer 1.2 http://www.gta4-mods...aphic-mod-f9236
I'ts not a big download, seems odd, but I don't know a thing about gta modding. is it that simple to install? the readme file sounds a bit scary!

This version uses the 0.082 DLL as a base
Which means :

Overheating of videocards NVidia GF8800, high end from GF2xx series and most from GF4xx, GF5xx

Be careful.

No one is responsible if you have any hardware problems.
Just try to avoid overheating using a better fan.

If you results some artefacts , bugs , everything going all blue , and massive slowdown for
no reasons.

Stop playing.

Not the same thing as ICEnhancer however both mods use ENB which is the program used to get the better graphics. Icelaglace and I customized our ENB in different ways. The version of ENB he uses is said by the creator to cause video card corruption although I have used it and never ran into such problems. To install the mod just copy and paste whatever is in the ICEnhancer folder into your GTA 4 folder and you are done. Also use patch 4 of GTA 4, download xliveless, and use simple native trainer use version 5.3 to avoid crashes.

I can confirm my GPU drove past 84 degrees all the way to 94 degrees before I turned up my fan. Any 0.82 dll (d3d9.dll of version 0.82) will cause overheating. Simple thing to do is to download a GPU fan control program something like eVGA Precision or [other] and set your fan to %65 and higher depending on your decibel tolerance.

Once you've done the above -> Play happily.

Is this better than ICEnhancer? What would you recommend between this mod and ICE?

That depends on your taste and what patch/game you are on. Here is the latest version of ICEnhancer: http://www.gta4-mods...aphic-mod-f9503 and here is the latest version of SGIV: http://www.gta4-mods...ersion-11-f7896. If you are on patch 4 of GTA 4 then in my opinion you should use ENB (pick which one suits your taste). If you are on patch 7 or on Episodes from Liberty City then I would suggest using a graphics mod that doesn't use ENB because ENB has bugs when using either EFLC or patch 7. Stunning Graphics IV has a version without ENB if you want to use it:) Another graphics mod without ENB is VisualIV.

Are you using xliveless and simple native trainer version 5.3 (not the latest one because it doesn't work with patch 4)

Thank you for getting back so quick colgate.gif
xliveless (0.999b7) yes but not that trainer no, I didn't know I needed it! Thank's bud I'll give that a try smile.gif
The other thing I noticed is that it said enb 0.82 when loading up, but I though you used 0.79 in your mod?

Installed the trainer and hey presto it works!! Finally I can use ENB wohoo!!! biggrin.gif Now to see if I can get better textures to work.

Thank you so much for your help, hope all goes well at college for you bud, work hard eh wink.gif

Hello there joe??? biggrin.gif
atm i dont have much free time to finish all, r8 now only sunny (day) with all new enbxxx files from previous version, and minor change on SGIV timecyc, imo to be honest SGIV must have different timecyc (both for timecyc mods/ENBSeries mods)

ok just 2 small screen on 0.81
