Ultimate Graphics Tweak
Important: Test version of tweak compatible with patch 1.0.6.0 is available. Tell me how it works. Get it HERE Presentation in HD
What is this?
Ultimate Graphics Tweak is a little modification which allow you to enable improved post processing effects like Motion Blur and Depth Of Field. It also smoothens dotted shadows and jaggy edges while keeping whole game sharp and clean. As a result game feels like a movie, and is visibly smoother even at low frame rates (15-25FPS). NOTE: To improve your gaming experience even more I recommend GTA4 Enviroment mod by kriller2 as a great addition to this tweak.
You have a choice
To satisfy all of you I divided Ultimate Graphics Tweak into all possible combinations of particular effects so you can enjoy only those you really like. Just look at the table below and decide which tweak suits you best. If you want to check more than one option just install one of those tweaks and then overwrite files from another one, it's safe.
