Ultimate Graphics Tweak

Question

CptPusheen

 

Ultimate Graphics Tweak

_____________________________________________________

 

 

Important:Test version of tweak compatible with patch 1.0.6.0 is available. Tell me how it works. Get it HERE

 

 

 

Presentation in HD

 

 

What is this?

__________________________________________________

Ultimate Graphics Tweak is a little modification which allow you to enable improved post processing effects like Motion Blur and Depth Of Field.

It also smoothens dotted shadows and jaggy edges while keeping whole game sharp and clean. As a result game feels like a movie, and is

visibly smoother even at low frame rates (15-25FPS).

 

 

 

NOTE: To improve your gaming experience even more I recommend GTA4 Enviroment mod by kriller2 as a great addition to this tweak.

 

 

 

You have a choice

__________________________________________________

To satisfy all of you I divided Ultimate Graphics Tweak into all possible combinations of particular effects so you can enjoy only those

you really like. Just look at the table below and decide which tweak suits you best. If you want to check more than one option just install one

of those tweaks and then overwrite files from another one, it's safe.

4. After validation click "Apply patch" button

 

5. Go to ..\Grand Theft Auto IV\Common\Data\ and rename visualsettings.dat as visualsettings.OLD.dat

 

6. Copy visualsettings.dat from unpacked archive to ..\Grand Theft Auto IV\Common\Data\

 

7. There is a rage_postfx.fxc file in following folders:

..\Grand Theft Auto IV\Common\Shaders\win32_30_atidx10

..\Grand Theft Auto IV\Common\Shaders\win32_30_low_ati

..\Grand Theft Auto IV\Common\Shaders\win32_30_nv6

First to say hello to all forum members I'm new here. I used this performance tweak from first post on brand new installated GTA IV without any patch. It gave me performance boost with +15 fps. But my problem is very bad graphic even with all settings high. I assume problem is with 640*480 map reflection but I don't know how to configure settings on default. I try everything erasing commandline, change graphic while playing and today I reinstall game but nothing work. Graphic is really crap and I just want to play game on default setting. Is there any folder where is saved configuration setting or something like that because I never seen this before.

1)I have recently downloaded "Tweak1" and tryied to install it on version 1.0.7.0(which is supposed to work from what i am reading).The game is 100% pure.

When i try to validate i get this:

user posted image

 

2)So, decided to do a repair(it is described like reinstall) using the official disc.Unfortunately the problem persisted.

3)As a final solution, i downloaded "Test version of tweak compatible with patch 1.0.6.0 is available" file and copied the 2 included files (rage_postfix,visualSettings) at the directories that the "1.0.2.0 - 1.0.4.0 SINGLEPLAYER" txt writes.

The problem persists!!Please help!!!I can't get rid of this screen!! devil.gifdevil.gifdevil.gif

Thank you, thank you!!! This mod is amazing!!! Due to my less powerful system (Pentium 4, Nvidia 9400GT), I had lag. The game ran at an average of 20fps but with I installed tweak 1 and it works with patch 1.0.7.0 smile.gif This mod seems to work fine with VisualIV and my GTA IV looks amazing! Also as bonus the blur and depth of field seem to reduce the jagged edges of objects you would normally see while playing the game at lower resolutions than your monitors optimum. It still looks nice and clear but while driving the there are some very nice effects! So to all the people who made this mod, thank you!!! smile.gif

Tomorrow I might even record and post a video to show how well it runs and looks biggrin.gif

No update for EFLC? Can anyone recommend me another mod with depth of field besides this? (please don't link the alternate graphic tweak, it warns me for viruses) Thanks!

Hello, I have downloaded tweak 1 and apparently it doesn't look like in the screenshots. I mean, the motion blur and shadows are right, but the depth of field is all weird. Instead of getting depth of field my whole screen is kinda blurred like you would normally turn off definition. I am running version 1.0.4.0 and I did just as the instructions said. Checked three times just to be unbelievably sure biggrin.gif Maybe you can help me out ?

 

EDIT: I downloaded Tweak 5 and that works great for now, no more overall blur. Thanks biggrin.gif I would still be great if anybody could help me get Tweak 1 right.

I'm running the 1.0.6.0 test version on the 1.0.7.0 patched version and it's working great! It took me a little while to get used to the motion blur but I'm starting to like it. I'm running gta iv with this tweak at full 1920x1200 resolution with a lot of the settings at high or medium quality. I do occasionally get lag when going real fast from one section of the map to the other but it's fairly rare. Everything looks clearer, cleaner, and just plain better and the performance has improved as well. Excellent tweak!

 

My System:

-------------

ASUS Crosshair Mobo

ATI Radeon HD 5800 series 1GB

4GB Corsair RAM
