R*. Do you even care? (Extended Shadows Distance)

It's happening for a while now..but still R* just keeps adding new adversary modes instead of fixing bugs/glitches.

 

 

Edit: 6/19 Issue still not fixed

This is happening at least since two patches ago. They stopped doing PC-specific fixes for a while now, only small simple ones, so I wouldn't expect this to get fixed at least soon. Maybe with Gunrunning.

Hmm. I remember reading somewhere that the Extended Shadow Distance slider is backwards. So turning it all the way down, really extends the shadows farther, and turning it all the way up really is the lowest quality effect.

 

Is this true?

You need to have High Resolution Shadows enabled ( On ) in order for Extended Shadows Distance to work.. since patch 1.37. Not sure if it was intentional.. probably not.

Yeah that's what I heard too and I've had mine set to zero since then. Although I can't ever really see a difference between it set to zero or max and either way, my fps isn't effected. Edited by FourFingersOfFun

have you tried running game as admin? And changing settings after you get into game rather than on landing screen?

Yeah, I've been seeing as lot of this one lately every time it rains--kind of a "can't unsee it once you notice it" bug. Considering Nvidia themselves have said it's on R*'s end, this really needs to be fixed:

 

- [MightyMax] There is an odd texture on the ground when raining, and after rain stops (additional video clip). It is believed to be a circle dithering issue. Update: Nvidia replied to me and they have confirmed this issue resides within GTA V's graphics engine. NVIDIA or AMD drivers are not the cause. [Jax765] It's not as extreme for me, but I do notice the bad LOD dithering on flat grass. Almost certain it wasn't the case at launch. [DentureDynamite] I can also confirm this bug.

+1 Case in point--one of the last patches, 1.38, only addressed one PC-specific issue:

 

General / Miscellaneous – PC Only

* The length of the boost ability on the Rocket Voltic is now the same on all platforms and no longer varies by framerate.

Yes it is true (http://gtaforums.com/topic/808542-extended-shadow-distance-opposite-works/) and I am pretty sure R* has not fixed this yet, so I just leave the slider at zero (0).

I have a same problem too!

 

The Extended Shadow Distance slider is backwards to zero every first start at the game.

 

If, i move the slide max is it change something in the game? I can't see changes.
