The black stripes coming through the car, that issue is related to a shader bug afaik. I cannot give you more details, I never had such bug but if possible, try a different patch first or remove custom shaders.

A command line could help with some lagg issues. You could take alook at this topic for help with stuttering: http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=404147

Please post your system specs and patch version! In any case the specs are important to know. The more information you include, the more effective is the help. The 'new' patches are not fully

supported by ENB and that could result in such shader bugs if you're using a bad patch/ENB combination. Most recommended patches for using ENB or icenhancer are 1.0.3.0, 1.0.4.0 or 1.0.0.4.

ADM Premium Vision Grapics.

What is it? Notebook card? How many VRAM?

 

You're probably running the wrong patch. Steam versions of this game are bad for modding as they like to update their patch automatically.

The glitches you're getting really sounds like a wrong patch. I'm using only retail versions for modding cause I can freely choose what patch I can use. You have to change your patch somehow.

 

About the lag: Your specs are not that great, you know that? That video card perplexes me a bit.

Change patch. Really. I often heard of that bug. Afaik it comes from the shaders that got changed with new patches. You're probably running the latest patch (1.0.7.0). Take a look at your .exe for details.

What patches are mostly supported by ENB I have mentioned above. 4GB RAM is not much today if your GPU is crap. I still don't know what GPU you have.

You have 4GB RAM installed but only 3.25 are usable, no matter what you install, on a 32 bit operating system you cannot adress more RAM. This is not VRAM, VRAM is memory from the video card.

If you want to step into visual modding you really need to know all your hardware information. And we need to know them as well.

Okay, an HD 5670 is simply not enough to have fun with IV plus ENB no matter what you tweak.

I think this was the original card that was mounted on my pc at first. I upgraded to HD5770 which still wasn't enough for IV plus ENB.

The GTX460 I'm currently using seems to be enough to play IV and mostly maxed out ENB (FXAA, no SSAA). Considering the rest of your system I don't wonder about lag, that is expectable.

You can try it of course but I suppose you will enjoy the game much more with a new video card. With nice FPS and good quality it's still very impressive game. One of the best maps in video game history.

The rest of your specs are okay if you don't want to max out everything. Maybe you don't need a complete new computer, maybe you can upgrade your system for less money.

 

Just a general tip but it's a lollipop for your hardware: Reduce your 'View Distance' and 'Distance Quality' in your game settings. I never go above 20 for playing (50 for Distance Quality).

It doesn't make sense, the performance lost is immense, the visual enhancement is minimal. If you want to max out this too you need a 3GB monster video card...
