I do happen to use older patch (1.0.4.0 if I'm not mistaken; ICEnhancer works best with this one), and it works perfectly fine so far.

Hi,

 

I've got a strange problem with GTA:EFLC (1.0.7.0).

 

I have great performance and FPS, but when I install map mods (like GTA:V countryside for example), the memory doesn't load them properly. The map mods only load properly if I teleport directly to them. If I wander around Liberty city (and I assume this means the memory loads other models/textures?) then when I arrive at my map mod- it won't load properly (if at all).

 

I've got about 15 car mods (rare cars, not ones that appear often), Simple trainer mod v6.4, and the ELS sirens mods installed. Only map installed is GTA:V country side (at the moment) but I have the same issues with Red Dead Desert also...

 

My PC specs are:

 

Core i5 3570k (3.4Ghz-3.8Ghz), 8GB RAM (2x4GB @ 1600Mhz), 7970OC 3GB, and it's running from a WD Cavier 2TB drive

 

My command.txt looks like this-

 

-norestrictions-nomemrestrict-novblank

 

 

What could be causing this?

Are you talking about texture pop-in issues? If so then they are most likely caused from the vehicle pack. Try creating a new .txt file on the game directory, named commandline, then copy/paste the following into it:

 

 

-availablevidmem 2.0-percentvidmem "100"-novblank-norestrictions-noprecache

 

 

If that didn't work, then I think you'll need to remove the vehicle pack and manually install vehicles.

I haven't got a vehicle pack, just a bunch of custom installed vehicles. Anyway- the commandline.txt you wrote for me seems to have worked! Thanks smile.gif

 

Which line in particular was causing it?

 

With my PC specs, could someone please recommend me an enhancement/EnB? I've tried a couple but they never seem to run that smoothly or have bright night issues...

 

Again my specs are- Core i5 3570k (3.4Ghz-3.8Ghz), 8GB RAM (2x4GB @ 1600Mhz), 7970OC 3GB. Cheers

This topic has several varied ENB modifications, with Icenhancer being the most popular.

Thanks for that- I've tried soo many (China elvis ENB and many other ENB's, and ICEnhancer) but I keep having the bright white sky issue. Everything goes white if I skip time with the Simple trainer. Is that normal?

My Specs

 

Operating System: Windows 8 64 bit OS

RAM: 8 GB RAM

Processor Intel Core i7-3630QM @ 2.4 GHz

GPU: Intel Integrated Graphics HD 4000

 

Right now I see X/206 on the graphics section of the settings - is there anyway I can beef this up? I've already got commandline.txt in the directory but I don't know how much availablevidmem I should put down. Additionally even at the lowest settings walls aren't rendering which is worrying - what should I do?

I'm not sure but specifying a value from 1.5 to 2.0 might help, I guess. You can try using the below commandlines

 

 

-norestrictions -nomemrestrict -refreshrate 60 -availablevidmem 2.0 -percentagevidmem 100 -novblank -framelimit 0 -noprecache

 

 

Also, do you have any building or any other texture mods?

No mods and it was installed on a brand new notebook (no other games installed on it). The 2.0 helped a little but I still can see through walls. Any other ideas?

At what settings can I run this. I heard that this game is badly optimized so I just wanted to confirm, It's a laptop btw:

 

Core I5 3210m 2.5ghz

4 GB DDR3 RAM

500 GB Hard Disk

AMD Mobility Radeon HD 7650m 1GB

Windows 8 Single Language 64 Bit.

 

So far I have played only 3 games on this laptop and I can max them all, One game is pretty old nevermind that, But the others are Prototype and FIFA 13. I maxed out FIFA 13 without any lag that is until it crashed due to some problem with Windows 8. I maxed out Prototype with just very little lag but completely playable and that tiny lag was present only when there was a lot of fighting going on, So surely I can run GTA 4 at decent settings? I also would like to know what happens if you play it without the patch. Thanks in advance. smile.gif

Depends on the resolution you're using. If 1440x900, then you might just run it at Medium/High or even High settings with a playable framerate. 1920x1080, I'd say Medium settings.

Well them it might just run the game at High settings. I wouldn't be surprised if you max it out, Alex [it out]...

 

Okay that was horrible.

Nah man, I was talking about that joke.

 

Anyways your laptop might rtun the game better than you expect. Don't be surprised if you max it out at 20FPS.

You'll get horrible performance. Better to install patch 1.0.4.0 for optimum performance, and 1.0.7.0 only if you want to play online.

Can this PC run GTA IV and if it can how well

Nah, you're going to need a dedicated GFX card.

@AuSsIeThUnDeR36: What graphics card does it have?

It has 1 GB dedicated AMD Radeon whatever that is. It uses crossfire to enable cpu to go to high performance when gaming. I dunno I'm no tech guru. I have original Far Cry and I can max the settings on that which makes the game look awesome but a steady warm stream of air comes through the vents, i guess that's normal when gaming at high graphic rate.

You may run it on Medium settings at most then - but that depends on the GPU. Use GPU-Z to find out more about it.
