GTA IV Patch 7/EFLC Patch 2

Question

Rockstar Toronto

A new update is now available for both GTA IV and EFLC through GFWL. Downloadable versions will be made available on the Rockstar Games Support site.

 

GTA IV

 

v. 1.0.7.0 / 1.0.6.1 (Russian) / 1.0.5.2 (Japanese)

 

- fix a bug causing tree leaves to look transparent

- fix a bug that prevented uploading of rendered videos to Social Club when attaching certain music tracks

- fix for clip capture "OFF" slowdowns occuring when near waters edge

- expose "detonate" in custom key mapping options menu for Grand Theft Auto IV, Lost and Damned so users can remap "down" arrow key

 

EFLC

 

v. 1.1.2.0

 

- fix a bug causing tree leaves to look transparent

- fix a bug that prevented uploading of rendered videos to Social Club when attaching music tracks from the Ballad of Gay Tony

- fix for clip capture "OFF" slowdowns occuring when near waters edge

- fix for slowdown occuring when getting in a boat during "Sexy Time" mission in The Ballad of Gay Tony

- expose "detonate" in custom key mapping options menu for Lost and Damned so users can remap "down" arrow key

- EFLC now has it's own settings file called "SETTINGS_EFLC.CFG" to avoid possible conflicts with GTA IV installations

Very High shadows are little optimized.

We did not tweak the shadow map sizes, Very High shadows require a late model video card with 1.5 - 2 Gigs or VRAM to work as intended. High Shadow Quality is the rough equivalent to Very High in the old solution.

Rockstar Toronto, thank you for this new update. Can you please have someone investigate the vsync load time issues I have posted here http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=449345, which have been confirmed by other forum members.

 

With gta4 vsync on, load times are fine, but maximum frame rate seems to be hampered by a few frames per second, ruining smoothness (with gfx card vsync set to on, I can get for example 60fps perfectly vsynced in areas, but with gta's vsync on things are not the same, its not doing vsync as it should I feel), and with it off, load times increase by about 700%. Hopefully it might only be a quick fix to resolve this in the next update. It might be a case of doing vsync in a more standard way like other games do.

 

Thanks!!

The only annoyance on my part doesn't seem to be fixed (judging from the OP). New vehicle models in EFLC having problems with lights. Has this been overlooked, or deemded not important enough to be fixed ?

R*, can you give us the ability to save the episodes (DLC's) in the games directory? I have an SSD and id rather use it for photoshop than to have (Well be forced) to have DLCs saved on it. I have GTA installed on another HHD.

4xxx and 5xxx still not getting water ripples, what are the status on that fix. This problem has been around since like last year....

Thanks.

You can manually set the Downloads Directory in the "Settings" tab of the Games for Windows Live client.

 

As for the water ripples, that is something that needs to be solved in a driver update.

Would you please contact ATi about it? You're a developer, were small time. You get my point, hopefully....

If you are getting Texture Popping then you have exceeded the amount of available video memory.

 

See this thread here on how to manage this:

We have sent bug reports out to the driver teams, not much else we can do.

Not sure, but I might had an FPS increase.

 

Anyway that's the only problem I have with TBoGT vehicle models too. Only the light sprites will show up, but the lights themselves doesn't light up. If you haven't noticed it, check out a civilian using his blinkers in a new car (serrano for example).

 

Not sure if any1 mentioned this, but I think R* should prevent vehicles.img modifications online, since if you go online with a modded car (new car model, for example: Lamborghini Murcielago instead of Infernus), others will crash with either SMPA60 or SMPA50.

So we still cant have seperate sepperate settings for each episode.I get better fps in BOGT than in TLAD so I want to have lower settings in TLAD and higher settings in BOGT without having to change them everytime.

Since you ignored me in the last atch thread, Rockstar, I will ask this here, before I try/waste time of this new patch.

 

 

Rockstar Toronto, is there anyway of turning the static noise filter off, if one is using stock GTAIV, no mods, and patch 6 ?

Or this is only available to TLAD and EFLC owners ?

 

So, is this now possible with patch 7 ? A simple yes or no will suffice. I didn't see it anywhere in patch 6, so I won't hold my breath.

If you are getting Texture Popping then you have exceeded the amount of available video memory.

 

Ahhhhhhhhh I see so it is our "own fault" is it, I shall make sure I never exceed the available video memory in future ............ oh wait I never have exceeded the video ram but I still got texture pop in. I run GTA 4 on the Auto settings that YOU guys recommend (in fact I have to turn them down a bit because the frame rate is still crap). Any way at least we know where we stand with the texture pop in problem, you aren't going to fix it you are just going to blame us sarcasm.gif

I'd quite like to see that too, although I doubt it'd happen any time soon. The only engine I know of ported to DX11 was the Avalanche engine, and that was pretty much an entire re-write.
