The Differences Between Versions

Recommended Posts

LazlowsucksiloveslutS

Isn't PC draw distance questionable? If I lower draw distance to 0 then isn't it same (maybe even worse) than console versions?

 

Not too long ago I happened upon comparison video where PS2 and PC versions were compared in-depth. And everything seemed better on PS2: lens flare, rain reflections on road, moon phases and other cool visual effects. What the hell, I don't see how PC version has polished graphics and enhanced visual effects (as it says on official site).

R*'s port to the PC was bad. I see a lot of people being shocked that recent PC ports were bad but they should have expected that since that has been happening almost every port. I made a list of fixes and restorations for anyone who wants to get a "proper" gaming experience on the PC. I recommend SkyGfx and SilentPatch for you.

Yeah, all GTA games are bad on PC. (But at least SA performs relatively smoothly on my laptop compared to IV and V)

Silentpatch I already tried, for some reason it made the game look uglier. Maybe it's because SA is not meant to run above 25 fps, while Silentpatch locks it to 30. Maybe I should have done some sh*t in ini file. I don't know why but SA looked uglier when I used Silentpatch.

I guess it was a 'Taste Of Things To Come' given the shocking PC Port of IV.

 

Thoughts?

Today I played with Skygfx. I don't know if this is the mod, or is it like that on PS2 but the sky stays blue during daytime, all the time, no details - no change. It only changes during sunset to orange coloiur. I like the sky on default PC version better, it has variance. I like the dark red tone it takes between 10 p.m and midnight. Moon phases and lens flare are cool but I'm going back to PC default, i like the lighting and shadows better.

 

Skygfx is cool in it's own way, I'm not just used to these visuals,

It is a MOD, the difference between versions does Not Include Mods, because they are not part of the Published game.

Now I find myself unable to decide which is better - pc default or silentpacth + skygfx. I'm currently doing burglaries, ir's easier with AA and pc draw distance. And yet, I really like the lens flare at sunrise. I've been switching back and forth between default and modded. Can't make up my mind what to stick to. Skygfx is really nice, once I got used to it, but PC default has its advantages as well.

EVERYONE: Listen Up:

Differences between Published Games, is one thing.

 

The "Improvements" made by Modifications to the Game is a totally different can of Worms.

Take ANY and ALL discussion of MODS to the Modding Forums, they do not belong Here.

"Silent Patch" is a MOD as far as discussion here is concerned.
