SkyGfx: PS2, Xbox and Mobile graphics for PC

Recommended Posts

@The Hero I noticed that "Skygfx" made my GTA SA lags (ex, Ganton: 45 or 50 FPS), especially on Win 10 Pro (1703, 1709, 1803, 1809, 1901).
But, back then I reinstalled my OS to Win 8.1 Pro and BAM! The lag is gone (Ganton is stable on 60 FPS). IDK if this is just a bug from Skygfx or it's just happened to me only.
BTW I used "Framerate Vigilante"
Do you have anything to say about this one?

No idea. I have played SA on win 10 but not without frame limiter or while measuring fps.

It runs fine on my PC (i7-8700, RTX 2070) Win 10 1903, but that might just be raw power keeping it at 60 fps locked. I do notice a SSD makes a ton of difference for a stutter free experience when running draw distance mods.

What are the best settings for this mod? I want to have the best graphics possible without using ENBseries, because of it's horrible performance.

Which game? SA? It usually comes down to preference but for SA I like the most PS2 like filters combined with Mobile Texture Details and Mobile Reflections at a higher resolution and then disable the blurring...

At first probably only used for streaming settings but eventually used as a general settings file for SA also controlling some parts of postfx

Could anyone tell me how the Vice City alpha target lock was accomplished? Is it possible with just editing textures? I've been modding the xbox version and would really like to have this feature.

There was a wrong render state, same with the sniper dot. this is the fix: https://github.com/aap/skygfx_vc/blob/master/src/main.cpp#L931

Thanks, I appreciate the help, but it's Greek to me. If I wanted to find those specific address values and change the rendering state how would I go about it?

you check the code at address 0x5D4EEE and see if you can find it in the xbox executable.

Hi, I started using this mod a short time ago, since I don't like to use mods or tricks. I don't know if someone has already discovered this error: on some ships (scualo, jetmax) when you go down instead of being on the boat you transfer it straight down, and you are sunk looking at the inside of the boat. It is not a bug too annoying.

SkyGfx actually works better with PS2 and XBOX vehicles, my question is how to solve the problem I mentioned earlier and not knowing which vehicles are compatible with SkyGfx

Sir, can you bring SaGfx specular feature to SkyGfx ? Its look perfect for me. Too bad it just abandoned mod.

Either Neo or Mobile vehiclepipeline should come close enough to that without the issues SaGfx has.

Nope, its different. The SkyGfx mobile reflection is okay, but the specular is not.

NEO is the one with the spec, or you have a special SPEC option which is the PS2 style reflections with added spec too.

Spec was my idea of how PC or Xbox vehicles should be rendered, there are no reflections mapping on any of them. As others have said, neo and mobile both have reflections. I kinda do have a better reflection pipeline in the back of my head, but I have no concrete plans atm.

Hello guys. When using the PS2 colour filter, I get that hazy/blurry effect. Is that normal? I like the PS2 colours but not this.

I have this problem when adding cars without replacing with SkyGfx, After starting the game, a certain number of cars are generated with reflections and after spending about 5 minutes the new cars that are generated do not possess them,this happens randomly and with that I mean that "it doesn't happen in the same cars" so I rule out that it is a mistake in the .dff,I already tried in a game without further modifications that: (SILENTPATCH,OLA,FMLA,MOONLOADER, "SkyGfx obviously") and 250 cars added without replacing and the bug is still happening, What may be causing this??

did you rename .dll to .asi (to make it work with an asi loader, since .dll is only usable with simple dll loader)?

Are you sure isn't running? It seems that the executable is the wrong one. Try to get an 1.0 compact or hoodlum exe.
