My frame rate is very uneven. Sometimes the game runs at 62 FPS and other times it drops at 12 FPS. V-Sync doesn't help one bit.

Only way I've found to fix this is to set the graphics to flatout minimum, which renders the game not even worth playing...

Any mod out there that can balance the frame rate between different times of day or weather effects?

For some reason rainy weather isn't the one with the worst frame rate...

I don't think this is necessary since it's Rockstar's f*ckup but, my PC specs:

Intel Core i5-661 3.33 GHz (core duo)
8GB DDR3 RAM
GeForce GTX-550 Ti 1GB
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

EDIT: Game version 1.0.7.0 / 1.1.2.0. TBoGT runs worst and TLaD runs best. Not big surprise.

because its related to the lighting/shadow effects. that amber-colored time of day is the most stressful i have found. when its raining, there's not that much light and everything is drab and gray, which reduces the color information necessary as well. this is related to why disabling night shadows/reducing shadow quality is so important on low powered machines.

Yeah that seems about right. Any way to fix it without reducing the graphics to total and utter sh*t?

This is more related to the cpu load than to the graphics card. Turn down the graphics settings that are cpu dependant and leave the graphics card ones higher.

Environment mod on patch 4 helped me quite a lot in this regard.

Can I have a link for that? Don't know if it will be any good since I have version 1.7 of the game but I'll try anything...

I should've probably mentioned that.
