Patch 1.0.4.0 vs Patch 1.0.7.0

Which is the best?  

113 members have voted

  1. 1. Which is the best?

    • Patch 1.0.4.0 (Performance)
      51
    • Patch 1.0.7.0 (Quality and bug fixes) - Latest
      33


Question

Dr. John

After trying both of the patches and I couldn't decide which one I should put, I made this poll. For now I have patch 1.0.4.0 which gives me 35 FPS.

 

What's your choice?

Patch for, for performance and the environment mod. I was also kind of phasing out GTAIV by the time patch 7 came along, anyway.

well, 1.0.4.0 gives the best performance. but 1.0.7.0 gives the best quality. since my rig is powerful enough to run IV with 1.0.7.0 on highest with over 30 FPS, i use it. but on (for example) my laptop, which isn't that powerful, i used to use 1.0.4.0 where i had the graphics on med/high with 20 FPS.

 

for what i can see, u should maybe stick to 1.0.4.0, since 1.0.7.0 gives a FPS drop

Patch 1.0.4.0 is much better and for the pixalated shadows you can fix them with the motion blur filter(after some shader editing of corse),this filter also will smooth the trees and make a minor anti-aliasing effect,it's not working on patch 1.0.7.0,in the end will get the much better image quality without losing performence biggrin.gif

Nice and how you edit this shader? Can you post it for download (edited shader or tool about that)?Or you just make a praise yourself?

Use either 1.0.0.4 or 1.0.7.0. 1.0.0.4 is not the same as 1.0.4.0. It has all the performance of 1.0.4.0 but has more fixes AFAIK.

I've installed 1.0.7.0 patch but it is giving error efc20 and I've searched whole internet but there is fix for efc20 for 1.0.3.0 and 1.0.4.0 patches only. Please provide a link for this error's fix and if there is no fix for .7 then should I install .4?

Not to dig this up, but I did some extensive number crunching on the two patches, and 1.0.4.0 is far and wide superior to 1.0.7.0 by a great margin. Yes you have to deal with the ugly shadows, but honestly unless you use Very high shadows on 7, then they look worse most of the time.

 

So for me I found a spot on the freeway in Alderney above the PaynSpray looking east towards Algonquin. Then I cranked up my view and detail distance to 100 each. Here's my findings:

 

1.0.7.0 = 39 fps

 

1.0.4.0 = 60+ fps (I have a 60 fps cap so it might have been even higher for all I know)

 

This is with the exact same hardware, exact same time of day, no mods, and same graphics settings everything else. When I enable shadows, here's what I got:

 

1.0.7.0 = 31 fps

 

1.0.4.0 = 54 fps

 

 

So yeah, massive improvement in FPS. F*ck the new patch. Rockstar ruined GTA 4 on PC instead of fixing it. I sincerely hope the eventual PC version of GTA V isn't like the IV port.

For me this is very simple.

 

1.0.7.0 = 40 FPS incl. lag at high settings

1.0.4.0 = 61 FPS no lag at highest settings

 

I have 4k resolution, and 1.0.7.0 looks slightly better as for graphics.

But since performance is more necessary, i'd go with 1.0.4.0

I prefer 1.0.4.0. If you want better quality, you could always just mod your game 😊
