GTA IV & EFLC: FusionFix

Recommended Posts

El Dorado

Now it's a well known fact that the pc ports of Grand Theft Auto IV and Episodes From Liberty City are not amongst the most praised pieces of technology out there. And it's a shame really, because these games are nothing short of fantastic, and they deserve some love.

 

Hence FusionFix

xmkmyY2.png

 

 

FusionFix is a collaboratory work from members of the modding community with the goal of making the pc ports of GTA IV and EFLC a bit less broken.

 

If you want to add your 2 cents to the discussion, head over here https://github.com/GTAmodding/GTAIV-Issues-List/issues Report bugs, suggest solutions, follow the general development of the mod.

 

Download link can be found here (Source is also included) https://github.com/ThirteenAG/GTAIV.EFLC.FusionFix

 

Installation instructions are detailed in the above link, but it's basically drag contents from zip, drop to game folder.

Initial release features:
 

  • Fixed recoil behavior that was different when playing with keyboard/mouse and gamepad
  • Fixed forced "definition off" setting in cutscenes, now cutscenes will respect the menu setting
  • Partially fixed emissivestrong shader bug that was broken after patch 6 - BAWSAQ building is still rendered incorrectly, but the rest of the lights are now present in the game (e.g. Rotterdam Tower, Comrades Bar area)
  • Fixed DLC car lights in TBoGT
  • Tree foliage casts dynamic shadows instead of static (also fixing the "vegetation shadow bug")
  • Fixed handbrake camera behaving erratically when playing at high fps

 

Check some before/after screenshots

NOTE ABOUT OFFICIAL GAME PATCHES: This mod is being developed using patch 1.0.8.0 for GTA IV and patch 1.1.3.0 for EFLC as a reference. While it's not granted, it should also work on patch 1.0.7.0 and 1.1.2.0. As for older patches, it's basically trial and error. If you want to test it on older patches, try it and let us know how it goes.


Other mods that goes along well with this one: XLiveless Addon and ColAccel

Now, I've never played IV, but this surely some really nice progress here! Good work, @El Dorado, I wish you good luck with it.

I'd really love to see some fixes for the continuity errors and ret-cons in the story too.:)

By the way, this fixes the z-fightining over the map? On the lods models... I'm really happy that this project is happening. I thought something like this was really hard to achieve for GTA4 but isn't.

It looks like a few lines of code, but I can't even describe the amount of effort it takes to do something like this.

Z-fighting is tricky, because on Xbox you either see a lod model, or normal model, but on PC depending on draw distance slider, both appear at the same time. You can literally find a model with z-fighting, open menu and adjust that distance slider, which will make z-fighting appear or disappear for this particular model. There's probably multiple ways to solve this, for example by making lods smaller so they kinda exist inside normal models without overlapping each other, but that doesn't look doable. Other way would be to adjust draw distances in ide files, maybe that will help. So at the moment nobody knows how to solve this particular problem.

Don't know if y'all ever noticed this on EFLC (not a problem with IV + DLCs, but that's not an option when it comes to Multiplayer), but some particle effects are broken/bad (fog, drizzle rain, etc...), and it's not shader file related (I copied all the ones from IV over just to test). They look like squares/rectangles.

I don't think so, I think I looked through those too but they all looked the same as IV's, so I don't know.

I don't think so, it only can be loaded on IV and/or EFLC.

EDIT:

@ThirteenAG aw, sh*t. I hope something can be done to fix the z-fightning, it's so bad in IV and EFLC? I think.

Great work guys, thanks a lot! 

I didn't have much time to test properly the mod, but I noticed 2 things in particular:

1. This is probably related to the "Z-Fighting issue" that has already been reported. When in the FusionFix.ini the Handbrake Cam is enabled, you're in a vehicle and you're playing with a controller, the camera moves very vey fast... With mouse and keyboard everything seems to be fine tho.

2. Regarding the zooming-in problem that occurs in some cutscenes at high FPS, on GitHub you reported that the problem "went away" after you started a new game twice from a save file. In my case I got it normal after just one attempt, the cutscene was running at 90FPS even though it feeled choppy, surely far from smooth... But that's probably because cutscenes are supposed to run at max 50 FPS.

Yeah, I did more tests, seems like keyboard + 30 fps: camera barely works. Gamepad + 30 fps: exact same behavior as on xbox. Keyboard + 120+ fps: still nothing. Gamepad + 120 fps: too much movement.

That's without the fix. Not sure how to address that yet, but I'll think about it.

I'm reimplementing frame limiter that was present in patch 1, so there will be options to address cutscene zoom with fps limiter.

v1.1 released

https://github.com/ThirteenAG/GTAIV.EFLC.FusionFix/releases

New in this version: Framelimit options on the .ini

 

  • FpsLimit - enter a desired value to specify the number of frames per second you want for the game. Like 30, 45, 60 or more. This will affect all gameplay. Set to 0 to disable.
  • CutsceneFpsLimit - enter a desired value to specify the number of frames per second you want for the game to use on cutscenes only. Recommended 60 or lower, this option aims to fix the cutscene zoom that happens when playing on high fps. Set to 0 to disable (If you set this option to 0, but have a limit set on the above option, it will use that limit here too)
  • ScriptCutsceneFovLimit - this is the minimum fov value the game can set during script cutscenes, like this one. It prevents the game to zoom in too much on high fps. Note that this isn't a proper fix, more of a workaround.

New version uploaded with a new experimental feature: LodShift. Set it to 0.4, it will shift lods to a new position, to help avoid z-fighting between objects. It doesn't eliminate all z-fighting, but reduces it somewhat.

This looks awesome! Been meaning to replay IV lately.

 

Spoiler


This is a small bug but a mildly infuriating one - even on max everything the Statue of Happiness is an extremely low quality LOD when viewed from even the closest tip of the Castle Garden City area. I believe this bug was introduced in one of the patches that added EFLC stuff just before it was announced it was coming to PC.

EDIT: Just realized reports go to GitHub. Here's the issue.
