Shadows are bugged in this game

1. Especially Softest shadows, when you are piloting a plane or a helicopter, there is a weird pixelated square around the plane/helicopter shadows (on the ground)...

That is just one example.

 

2. In the advanced graphics, Extended shadows distance slider is bugged as hell, dont use it ! Look at this comparison http://67.227.255.239/forum/showpost.php?p=160522450&postcount=3720, it proves it.

 

3. Look at this

Overall, the game is great and optimized, but shadows are a bit bugged and I hope Rockstar fixes them as soon as possible !

Does someone know how to increase the quality of the shadows outside the "detail aura" (you what I mean, that space where the shadows are full res) ? How to expand that "detail aura" ?

 

Maybe it has something to with these values : (in the settings.xml. you can find it in Documents/Rockstar Games/GTA V)

 

<Shadow_SplitZStart value="X.xxxxxx" />
<Shadow_SplitZEnd value="X.xxxxxx" />

I've got the same issue as well
setting those things you mentioned above to 1.000000 increases the square range a little bit but it still catches the eye and it's annoying

I had the same f*cking problem

if you want to fix "shadow pixels" just set "Soft Shadows" to Ultra soft or Nvidia PCSS

 

but I have another problem - shadows are loading in high quality only around me, I mean - shadows near me (about 5 metres) looks great, but other are in low quality.

that sucks

Yes, that shadow pixels bug is not present when you set to PCSS, but ultra soft (you meant "softest") is still bugged. And Nvidia PCSS has a rather large perfomance hit...

 

about those low quality shadows, I tried messing with the Shadow_SplitZStart values and when I put both of them to 0.930000, it seems a bit better...But still, R* needs to relase an update and fix this.

Oh boy ..

 

you have a more serious problem that doesnt have anything to do with shadows.

Does anyone else have the same problem as mentioned in number 1 ?

 

copy-paste :

1. Especially Softest shadows, when you are piloting a plane or a helicopter, there is a weird unnatural pixelated square around the plane/helicopter shadow that appears on the ground

 

That bug happens with "soft" , "softer", "softest" and "AMD CHS" soft shadows.

Can someone test it and see if it happens for him as well, maybe even post a screenshot ???

Okay, great, thanks. Here is a link to your topic if someone is interested in this matter ---> http://gtaforums.com/topic/786003-shadow-pixels/?do=findComment&comment=1067324691

 

Anyway, did someone manage to expand that "detail aura" where shadows are cast in full resoulution ?

 

I tried this --->

<Shadow_SplitZStart value="1.000000" />
<Shadow_SplitZEnd value="1.000000" />

 

...but it does not help much, maybe we need to use some different numbers ?

I tried different various (0 & 1.0, 0,5 & 1.0) but only what I have got were bugs

I think we have to wait for patch or something
