Not sure what it is. I don't have this problem in GTA IV(Version 1.0.0.4) anymore, but I do have this problem in EFLC.(separate install) It's like the water is a big shiny mirror that moves.

From what I have seen about this issue, probably only a patch will fix this. At least for most.

sorry to sound like a noob but how is the water ment to look? because as far as i can tell from the pic with the boat and heli, the water looks fine. is it because it's missing the waves? i never really paid much attention to the water quality level of my game and now i wonder if mine is how it's ment to be.

 

thanks

i dont know about ATI but with an nvidia crad when i get this(usually after changin drivers or stuff in nvidia control panel)

i have change the "texture filtering -Quality" in nvidia control panel, it doesnt matter if you increase or lower it, just change it, and next time i start the game water is back to normal

I have got exactly the same problem. This seems to occur with all newer ATI cards. I am afraid there is nothing we can do about it until ATI or Rockstar offer a solution for this confused.gif

I'm having this same exact problem on Windows 7 64 Bit with an ATI 5850. Running latest patch and latest drivers.

 

Also suffering from the texture pop-ins.

 

Was there ever a solution offered for these issues?

I have New Sapphire Radeon 5870 Vapor-X

And i have problem with water quality like this :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xb2rrrFuEE

 

No matter what settings , but when i set lower in-game and then to High quality and very high water quality looks fine for some seconds then back to this ugly quality -.-

 

Same with GTA IV version 1.0.0.4

Same bro

I have Sapphire Radeon HD5870 Stock 1GB DDR5 850M

 

The water just gets lesser waves and clear reflections

 

After that, i get 5 FPS Boost.

 

Each time I change the resolution in the Options setting, the waves mysteriously came back.

But after awhile it slowly disappears

 

By Right it should be like this

 

user posted image

Both Are High Quality water [Left=Highest/Right=Normal]

Extreme Water Quality

From what I have known

 

This is my experiment

 

1st, to get high quality water. Change ur resolution in the options [between 60HZ and 75HZ] you will get high water quality

user posted image

 

2nd, 1 minutes later, Lesser waves

user posted image

 

3rd, 2 minutes later, Even lesser waves, better reflections but worse water quality

user posted image

Test #2

 

Helicopter above sea

again set resolution

user posted image

 

30 secs later...

user posted image

 

1 minute later....

user posted image

 

Test #3

Switch Water Quality & Reflection Resolution to "VERY HIGH"

user posted image

 

30 sec later... [no change same low quality shown]

I have the same problem too, when near the water i lag which makes it diffcult to play.

I'm using Nvidia Ge-Force 9800gt, with latest drivers.

Lagging near water means you havent patched the game to 1.0.7.0 version (or EFLC to 1.1.2.0), 1.0.6.0 has a bug that makes slowdowns near water edges, I would want to know what causes that bug, im guessing the new shadows.
