EDIT: can someone who already installed this mod tell me what kind of performance impact it has?
2x GTX 580 Extreme Edition? This should be the least of your worries

Everyone with crashes at starup, CLOSE OUT Rivatuner/Afterburner. They conflict with the mod!
post #173 of 548
Jesus, that hardware snobbery around here is ridiculous, obviously in a perfect world I'd buy a better system but I cant. I work 50+ hours a week for a laughable wage and It took me a good 15 months to scrimp and save for the rig i have now. It seems every time i make a post on here someone has to jump in saying to get a better system or its AMD therefore sucks.
Does anybody have a constructive answer to my question please?

I'm barely getting a stable 30fps. Sometimes it gets in the 40's, then dips into the 20's. I still love the mods though, and I have problems with textures disappearing.
You should turn down Shadow Density all the way, maybe 1 or 2. Change the detail and render/draw/view/whatever distance down low. That helped me gain some fps. Wish I could help you more.

You asked how to make it play better, I told you. There's no way to max out GTA IV with an AMD CPU, and your 5770 isn't anywhere NEAR strong enough (especially since Crossfire doesn't work on GTA IV).

I'm sorry if that offended you, but its the cold hard truth of the matter. Your hardware is NOT enough to max GTA IV, especially with mods. Turn settings down (specifically shadows, and the distance sliders) until its playable. Expect low settings.

I have some new picutres

I hid them here, I have alot.










That's pretty much what you can expect with iCEnhancer 1.25 on 1.0.4.0
post #177 of 548
Running this with 1.0.7.0. Realistic Driving mod was also a great addition, highly recommend it.

Does anyone have any tips for fixing the lighting/lens flare? Especially at night it's impossible to see anything. Some of the cutscenes are also just a blob of white. However it certainly looks awesome during the day so if it's either all or nothing I think it's worthwhile to deal with.

Did you install the 1.07 EFLC patch (it works on vanilla GTA IV too), or one of the others? Because if you're on version 1.07, there's one mod for both games (listed as EFLC 1.07).

Its all good, got it working.
Disabled crossfire and its running smoothly, had to lower the water settings which isn't too much of a sacrifice really.
Sorry, i didn't mean to get narky about it, just grinds my gears when folk knock my baby. I know its never gonna be a earth mover but im very proud of it considering the amount of work i had to do to afford it.
I shall now kick back and go on a small massacre of the inhabitants of Liberty City with shinny new visuals

I never once said your machine was bad by the way. Just that GTA IV needs a Core i5 at 4.0GHz or better, and a high end single GPU card (Nvidia is what it tends to prefer) to be able to play it smoothly with high settings (or maxed).

Can't wait till my build is up and running again... I've had this mod since it was first posted here (1.25), and I love it.

It works on multiplayer too, but you have to join modded hosts (or host yourself).
