Eh, I prefer it to be at 60fps rather than 25fps with overbright lighting and unrealistic colours. It actually doesn't look that bad at all, I've seen much worse. Saints Row 2 for example.

That looks absolutely stunning! I even expect GTA V to fall to this mod.

Yea...but the current console generation has already stressed out their limits.

There's a reason games aren't made with textures this realistic. Developers could do this with games if they wanted to, but they don't develop games like that because they wouldn't run at decent framerates for 90% of their customer base. Also, with textures of that size I imagine you couldn't make a DVD version of the game due to the total size of the files.

I wouldn't worry about VRAM, as long as you have 1GB if playing at 1080p.
Very playable though. I have other stuff going on in the background though, that might affect the performance a bit.

Oh, and check out the Police Pursuit Mod, it's pretty fun.
woaahhh. You're getting 30fps with this mod at 1280x1024??
hehehehe, I ain't getting this then. (Not like I even have GTA IV anyway )


@1080p, unless you have a super high end card, you will hit a raw processing power wall by the time you hit a vram wall imo

You have a Core i7 2600k.. and an 8800GTS 320 ? You are halfway in the upgrade right ?

If you are serious about playing GTA IV you need a graphics card with at least 1GB of VRAM.

Just to give you an example, you can max out a 1280 MB GTX470's framebuffer at 1680x1050 with this game.

It's Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City (not ELFC), it's an independent two additional games - includes both The Lost and Damned, and The Ballad of Gay Tony. You don't need to have GTA IV in order to run this game.

You argument makes sense but not quite entirely because of what you say.

It's true that GPU's still don't have a framebuffer capable of holding all these textures. You'll need 2GB of VRAM and corresponding horsepower for good results. The next generation of GPU's should address both of these concerns starting with the mainstream GPU's (with power equivalent to today's High-end GPU's).

On the other hand, GTA IV: EFLC is an 18 GB download from Steam, so... it won't even fit on a Dual Layer DVD

I thought first two shots were real life.

Is this reality?
