Hehe.. I think I know what I'm talking about.

With ENBs it's beauty in the eye of the beholder. But it's obvious that 2.1 is focused on performance rather than visual quality. He's removed all the little things that made GTA IV ENB eye candy heaven. AO is also toned down a ton, reflections are pretty tame, DoF is pretty much gone, motion blur doesn't appear to exist and the list just keeps going. Barely has any sweet ENB effects, it's all colours and light work.

That's why I keep recommending anything but his newest releases.

Word. What version are you using though? I'm on EFLC and unfortunately i believe it's fully updated - anyone know of a downgrade? It runs ok but effects seem to randomly flicker off for brief time and missing textures randomly.

Why? 2.1 is still a major improvement over vanilla and doesn't kill on performance.

I think the author of iCEnahncer doesn't want to tweak GTA4 + ENB anymore. It's obvious that visual quality is going backward since 1.25 (2.1 being the worst, IMO).
Out of many enbs I've tried, these are the one I like the most.
- iCEnhancer 1.25 (with userays=false)
Downside of 1.25 is that it lacks colors & it's all washed up (many people think it has realistic look.)
- KBL1974's L3EVO+ Modified ENB Settings
KBL1974 combined the best of L3EVO and iCEnhancer(1.25).
- L3EVO (2012 NY) v1.2 NVidia
For L3EVO based enbs, SSAO is disabled by default. you can toggle SSAO on and off by pressing SHIFT+F10. But by making changes in enbseries.ini, you can make them enabled by default.
EnableAmbientOcclusion=true
EnableSkyLighting=true
For multi-GPU/SLI users, nVIDIA's original SLI compatibility bits is "0x03400405". However, new SLI bits "0x42500045" improves SLI scaling nicely.
I'm not sure why you want to have -noprecache in commandline.txt.

I got that commandline.txt from a traffic bug fix and it seems to work very well and helping with the texture bugs that happen in gta 4 with alot of mods on it...

Noob here.

To install iCenHancer 2.1 do I just copy and paste the files to my GTA4 directory? It that all I need to do? Do I need to download anything else to get it to work?

I played a couple of hours with this mod, the game looks better but it's still a poorly optimized pos. Games like Mafia 2, Just Cause 2 or even the latest Sleeping Dogs look better and run much smoother.

GTA 4 vanilla graphics didnt bother me that much (except for total lack of AA), the game overall is boring with missions that dont last more than 10 min, a lot of "go here, shoot this guy, get paid with cash you have no use for". The story is convoluted and not very compelling (i actually finished it expecting some kind of twist at the end).
Multiplayer is about the only thing worth paying for.

Disagree. Using mods this game looks almost as good as modded skyrim... You need to work on it instead of just installing one lighting mod and expecting something amazing. Yes, stock, this game sucks.
