Hi. I posted in icEnhancer forum but no replies. I was wondering if anyone has successfully iceEnhancer on the original GTAIV (non-Steam). When I launch GTAIV, it doesn't run, it seems to hint that it'll run then nothing happens.

I have icEnhancer 2.1, GTA IV and Windows 8 64-Bit. My GPU is a Radeon 4850M with 512MB. 8GB memory and 2.4 i7

Thank you in advance.

God bless.

Works for me I'm on 1.0.7 though I do get the red sky issue though.. Did you try to run gta without ice? My gta wouldn't play at all when I was on windows 7 for some reason. I switched over to 8 run gta in compatibility mode for vista and it worked flawlessly. I put ice and various other mods. Then I got the red sky issue. But I'll deal with it? But if it doesn't boot does your mouse show the DVD symbol like it is loading or no? Cause whenever I try to run gta without Admin permission it doesn't even try to boot

Go to the ENB Screenshot Thread in my sig. In the first post there is a link to downloads called "Get modding running on your PC with this package by..." Should do the trick. You need asi loader, xliveless, filelist.pak etc. in your GTA IV directory. I run 1040 as well. It's the best patch honestly until Boris fixes ENB on 1070 and possibly implements new effects into ENB.

Hi. I'm new to modding GTA IV. I'm running Win8 Pro x64. I have the Steam version downgraded to + xliveless + ScriptHook. It all runs fine up until the point I install Ice 2.1, and then I get a flash and crash after doing the Rockstar login window.

log.log tells me:
full path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\grand theft auto iv\GTAIV\
redirecting CreateDevice
initialising shader environment
D3DXCreateEffectFromFile failed
try to use "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\grand theft auto iv\GTAIV" for shader files

I do not have any overlays running (Steam isn't even running when I start the game). I've been through every permutation of options that I can think of.

Any ideas? TIA
