Looks great. I do get a crash every time I exit San Andreas (because of IDE_DD_Tweaker), and a bunch of the coronas flicker. Other than that, it works fine.

 

BTW, what's the purpose of the dff files?

You can reduce corona size in the .ini. Just edit "CoronaRadiusMultiplier".

 

I personally think 0.5 or 0.2 looks the best.

Will that also affect the corona headlights or only the corona's of the lampposts?

The purpose of the .dff files are to increase the 2dfx of the lampposts.

We've noticed some of the coronas flicker, but it doesn't happen that often. Only seems to happen when you are flying straight down.

Nope, only the coronas we add.

I think we brought SA beyond its limits, I think.

The more we put on screen, the more objects, the more RAM its eating. Just take a look at the used RAM

in Task manager lol.

Yet another bug, the increased limits on IDE_DD_Tweaker causes vehicle windows to disappear very often (it happens on vanilla SA too, but only on a few specific places).

Been a known bug for a good while when increasing object distances in SA. So far nobody has found a fix for it.

No, we haven't went past the limits yet, we are just trying to reach them. Every mod which works stable enough can be called "working within limits of the game", as if the mod doesn't do it, well, the game crashes. And limits can and have been increased several times.

Yeah, I think I read about it before. Seems to be caused just by the generic patching though, just tobjs and lods patching don't cause it.

Most likely because generic has a lot of object. Bins, vegetation, lampposts, etc.. Also, the generic objects seem to have a limit on how much can be on the screen, so trying to increase the numbers really high won't work, some objects will spawn in at a distance and some won't until you get close. You can tell if you reached the limit if they just appear rather than fade in. Happens a lot with vegetation.

Haha, game is really laggy at night. Screw this damn laptop with its sh*tty 9600M GT 512MB with its 32 CUDA Cores.

Fortunately I'll be building a new PC this holiday.

But the game looks very amazing with all those 2dfx in the distance! Especially when driving on high streets in LS.

Now that I think of it, could the window bug be an issue with alpha textures?

Alpha textures? Trees also have alpha textures but they don't disappear more often as the car windows.

And the bug happens to me as well, but I haven't download the corona yet. I'm using Tweaker for something else

 

It also happens only to some cars. :)

EDIT. Yep, the window is attached to some plastic and only the glass disappears.

I think it is

 

I don't want to sound repetitive, but when ThirtheenAG released an early version of the IDE tweaker, the bug happened as well

 

http://gtaforums.com/topic/551939-wipbeta2x-object-draw-distance/?p=1062416350

 

Yup, it happens once you increase the draw distance with a lot of objects that have alpha textures. San Andreas has so many problems with alpha textures its unbelievable.

Yes, it is. Even GTA SA completely umodded has some weird alpha lines around the trees AND grass!

And to make it far worse, the fences are the worst when driving around the LS docks and you can see the blue air

through those fences. Just in unmodded game!

And there is no rough idea of a possible fix for the alpha mess?

That is just a thing i wanted to mention, you can easily increase farClp value of your timecyc with CFG Studio. My screens were made with farClp = 3000.

Every 3rd era GTA have that issue, i don't think it's related to car windows in any way.

Try to decrease CoronaFarClip value inside ini file.

There is a way for fixing the alpha bug, you need to change alpha flags via some map editor and test it until you get the right result.

And I found this bug, but I don't think it's related to the mod, as there are only few lamps which levitate like this one.

Has nothing to do with the mod. Since we never changed any coordinates of lampposts.
