ENBSeries runs until i exit safehouse
Posted 08 March 2012 - 12:51 AM
I'm running GTA4 EFLC on my Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 and nVidia GeForce 9600GT
Fresh install of GTA4, everything runs fine. Copy everything from the ENBSeries zip (a version which according to the site is compatible with patch 188.8.131.52) onto the main EFLC directory and run the game. The ENBSeries logo shows up, the start screen shows up and the game loads. I can walk around in my safehouse with the changed lighting and look around for as long as I wish. I can push the door open slowly and peek outside at the ENB enabled bloom and gorgeous new look. But as soon as I try to go more than a step from the door to my safehouse, GTA4 crashes.
I find this very odd since ENBSeries definately seems to run as I can see it in effect from the door. I just can't exit the safehouse. I've isolated the bug to installing ENBSeries since I've done this three times on three fresh installs.
I thought my kinda-getting-old-GFX-card was simply getting overloaded, so I lowered the settings and resolution as low as it'd go. I'd get 75+ fps in the apartment, and still have such a framerate looking outside the door. The game still crashed with the high FPS, so I'm not suspecting system load to be the issue.
Some posts I found while searching the forums recommended deleting enbseries.ini and forcing the game to run in windowed mode. This made no difference to the crashing.
Since I can clearly see ENBSeries work it's magic, even at high FPS, I really don't understand while the game crashes following nothing but an ENBSeries install.
I backed up all the files that ENBSeries replaces. I tried moving these original files back into place. This left the ENBSeries logo and credits still appearing on startup, but the game was working and ENBSeries didn't seem to be in effect. So I think one of the files ENBSeries replaces is incompatible with the version of EFLC I use (fresh from disc).
Any help/advice/suggestions/comments are much appreciated.

u probably need to get a better GPU with more memory, how much memory is your GPU?

My framerate is fine, so I still have a hard time believing load to be an issue. I can look around outside for as long as I want to with all the effects on and the framerate is still good (as in 25 fps "good" tho). I even switched the textures to high to test it. (is putting -texturequality 2 in commandline.txt forcing high or very high textures?)
The behaviour is just strange. And why did the crashing stop without me doing anything? I did shut the computer off, so it might be the reboot.
Again, any suggestions are much appreciated. But I'm glad it's semi-working now.

plus i think if u have modded texture files that are HD, those will add to the gpu processing and memory requirement
