No, i tried all patches - in every there is the same problem. hell, i had it even on PS3.
I reinstalled system so i got clear windows 10 now, it was hapening on windows 7 (clear), 7 upgraded to 10.
I have tried 3 kinds of video drivers, with every uninstall i used DDU. Lights flickering is getting less noticeable while i decrease draw distance. Its 100% fault of limit of dynamic lighting. This happen in ARMA 3 as well, if you decrease details of dynamic ligting (their total number) - problem will start sooner. In GTA IV there is no such option, nights shadows which may be also a problem (as they are based on dynamic lighting) are also disabled. There is no problems at daylight.

Lower all sliders to 70 or 80. Putting distance sliders above that, makes all sort of crap flicker

Yeah tried that. For me best resoults are on 100/100, on 70/80 some things start to fail to load, like textures of road under my cas when driving downhill, rooftop texture can cover whole roof window (on mission where you need to follow dealer and take down people in magazine) etc. Even R* support respond to my message this is officially dynamic lights issue - i wried them directly whats here :
https://support.rock...ts/115006958027

Plus spaces and acapits in proper place (dont know why on forum they didnt appear).

I also found some next bug - if you have ASI loader, you cannot complete mission where you steal car for Brucie from Rivas (easy as can be), game always freeze on cutscene when you get in that car. Tried on Windows 7 and 10.
