[GTA|REL] Render Flags Customizer

Alexander Blade

Recommended Posts


-= Render Flags Customizer



Allows to control game render flags, so you can for ex. disable shadows, sky, lights etc.

Very useful at low PCs.



GTAIV.exe version , ,


Download link: http://Alexander.SannyBuilder.com/Files/IV...gCustomizer.rar


All documentation is according to post by kbps

At default I get 24-25FPS, low everything, a bit more than 25% draw distance


I think I got a 4FPS increase with the default rederflags configuration settings... smile.gif

EDIT: Adding No Bullet Holes and Over bright - I got +7 FPS.


So all these 0/1 values are just on and off switches for particular objects?


I will test it out some more, now disabling some other useless things.



EDIT: Will add to sig, this is a very useful tool.

It didnt change anything, turned rendering off, but apart from an ugly looking game i didnt get a fps increase.

With the default render flags setup, I didn't get any difference graphically. But, benchmarkvise, I got up from 25FPS to 29FPS.



The tweak that disable all shadows, actually doesn't do anything, as I think it pertains to Grainy Shadows and not the smooth shadows - I already have disabled the grainy shadows - and even with that renderflag - nothing is changed, there is still smooth lightning everywhere.


You need to run benchmark, it might be that more powerful computers will get a performance difference of 0-2 FPS while weaker ones will get more like 3 - 7 FPS.


I am going to keep on using this setup,


- default + no bullet holes (not noticable imo) + big shadow tweak (which maybe is being overwritten by disable grainy shadows tweak)


30FPS now.

17-20 during cutscenes

rofl, i don't know how no-one noticed this earlier, but when i applied this thing to my gta iv w/o changing the flags (using the defaults thus) i noticed Niko's hair looked a bit weird... Yeah, it flattens his hair completely, not sure what else is changed, or does it just give a haircut to the whole liberty city.. sigh.gif

Will this make GTA IV able to run on a Pixel Shader 2.0 card since it's disabling most of the rendering, or is that just too much to ask for
