GTA IV&EFLC Graphics Fix Beta 1
This tweak will fix many graphical errors that are in GTA IV and EFLC.
-Grand Theft Auto IV 22.214.171.124
-Grand Theft Auto Episodes From Liberty City 126.96.36.199
In this build:
-Patch 188.8.131.52 version of gta_emensivestrong.fxc shader. (Fixes Rotterdam Tower Lights, Maisonette 9 bar lights, and possibly other bugged lights, from the old file, I may of not discovored.)
-Traffic Lights now use gta_default.fxc instead of gta_emensivestrong.fxc for Red, Yellow, and Green lights. The gta_emensivestrong shader from 184.108.40.206 made them not render properly, and that is now fixed.
-Grainy trees, fences, rails, etc are now smooth like on the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, using the Smoother Trees, Fences, Rails stipple.wtd mod by DexX
-Vehicle Reflections showing polygons and dull trees fixed using the d3d9.dll from ENB Series/ICEnhancer (Don't worry, there is no red sky bug, or any other changes made by this.)
-Rain effect files from EFLC are included for better rain splash effects. Before this was barely visible on GTA IV.
-The lights on the cars in The Ballad of Gay Tony are now fixed. (With no camera bugs, and no stoppie/wheelie bike physics bugs.)
Planned for future builds:
-Fix the textures on the exterior of Bahama Mamma's in The Ballad of Gay Tony.
-Fix the pannels in front of the head lights on the APC so the light shows through properly.
1. Locate the directory of the game you will be installing this on.
Default Install locations. (NOTE: If there is no Program Files (x86) folder, your on 32 Bit Windows, so go into Program Files instead)
GTA IV Retail: C:\Program Files (x86)\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto IV\
GTA EFLC Retail: C:\Program Files (x86)\Rockstar Games\EFLC\
GTA IV Steam: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Grand Theft Auto IV\GTA IV\
GTA EFLC Steam: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Grand Theft Auto IV Episodes From Liberty City\EFLC\
2. Drag and drop the contents of the Install folder to your game directory. (REMEMBER TO BACK UP YOUR FILES!)
[If you bought TBOGT as a DLC from the Games For Windows Live Market Place for GTA IV, and not with Episodes From Liberty City, continue on.]
3. Locate where you installed TBoGT DLC.
Default Install location.
-GTA TBOGT GFWL DLC: C:\Users\[YOUR USER FOLDER]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Xlive\DLC\[YOUR PROFILE ID NUMBER]\00000002\82402544b38206bc49d18891ab8fb6237c9f26e6\Content
4. Copy vehicles.img from "/TBoGT/pc/models/cdimages" to "pc/models/cdimages" located in the Content folder. (REMEMBER TO BACK UP THE OLD FILE)
Credits/Special Thanks: (Most of this stuff wouldn't be possible with out these guys.)
-Boris, and ICEGlace: For ENB Series/ICEnhancer d3d9.dll so this could have better looking trees, and fixed vehicle reflections.
-DexX: For the smooth stipple.wtd to fix that awfull grainy effect Rockstar made on the PC version.
-Good_NTS: Idea to fix the lights and the camera in TBoGT. Idea also lead me to the idea for fixing the traffic lights with the old gta_emensivestrong shader.
-Jur1zz, and smokey8808 for the original light fixes
