Thanks a lot for this masterpiece !!! I also can use it on EFLC ONLINE !!!
Posted on November 17, 2013 1:16PM by krsone
good for playing, but not very good for rendering and cinematic stuff
Posted on November 17, 2013 4:02PM by Goliathus23
Much better than the original 10/10!
Posted on November 19, 2013 2:51AM by Fraiche
very nice graphics not overcolored or contrasted or bloomed this is the most balanced I've seen 10/10
Posted on November 19, 2013 7:38AM by jaisesa
I do notice however, it does, on certain angles, black out the sky or flicker with lightrays. Any suggestions? Still, 10/10
Posted on November 19, 2013 8:47PM by DLer
Would this also work if I'd install this over the files of the iCE 2.0N version?

Or would there be a chance that it would just mess up the whole game? Or does it not matter at all which iCE-version I have installed?

Oh, and I use it on patch 4 by the way, since that's the only one it supports. But apparently you use the same iCE-version on a newer patch?... Strange...

@DLer, never saw that before, can you send me a screenshot or something?

@Damage Inc, this ENB is optimized for EFLC, didn't tested 1.0.4.0 since I only play online (single player is boring).

To install you can just drop the files over the original 2.0N, and if you are not happy with it you can reverse in the same way (just delete the additional files).

Its not "strange" I made 2.0N compatible with EFLC by fixing the timecyc and enabling the effects that don't work on orignal iCEnhancer by using Dax1 fix.

here are some screens on a fresh install. I think it is related to the bloom distortion perhaps?

I got it, I will update the timecyc and Dax1 shader, in the mean time try it:

open the shader A9A0DD8A.txt

and replace this:

def c69, 0, 0, 1, 0 // CloudsIntensity

for this:

def c69, 1, 1, 1, 1 // CloudsIntensity

Awesome!! Thanks!!
Posted on November 22, 2013 4:00PM by DLer
nice work

Rated: 9/10
Posted on November 24, 2013 2:42PM by w1ck3d
UPDATED!!!

-Better reflections.

-Improved sky&clouds.

-Fixed some issues with bloom.

(test and report back please)
Posted on November 25, 2013 4:52AM by buzzz
Only minor issue I found was near the golf range. The parking lot next to it seems to have changed textures. I have a screenshot, will upload later:

Posted on November 26, 2013 7:54PM by DLer
One other thing, I noticed it gives me a black screen after loading the game initially for a few moments, before cutting back in to the save location for the first time. Any ideas?
Posted on November 27, 2013 9:37AM by DLer
DLer thats due to the bump shader, stock textures looks ugly with it... you can just disable it or replace with DKT70 textures (if that particular part is modded)
Posted on November 27, 2013 10:18AM by buzzz
Thanks buzzz I'll look into updating that part of the map, now to find it in the files somewhere...and implement motion blur.
Posted on November 27, 2013 1:26PM by DLer
Next update with godrays effect (and no performance drop) :)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qK3WKQom2mo
Posted on November 30, 2013 2:49PM by buzzz
Really looking forward to that! Just gotta figure out motion blur to my liking.
Posted on December 2, 2013 12:38PM by DLer
I just updated the config, download again :)

Godrays implemented thanks to Dax1 and Portal2x2 with almost no performance drop :)
Posted on December 5, 2013 12:25PM by buzzz
Some things I've noted:

https://www.mediafire.com/?26jeozyz156y51p

https://www.mediafire.com/?wyf2u42tx8psl5w

https://www.mediafire.com/?wyf2u42tx8psl5w

https://www.mediafire.com/?wyf2u42tx8psl5w

Also, is there a way to have better draw distance? Mine is set to 100 but even with a high spec computer I see lower resolution textures in the distance.
Posted on December 8, 2013 10:21PM by DLer
Oh yeah, still the same issue I completely fogot, sorry about that, I'll update again...

I decreased view distance in timecyc (farclp) for better performance, original was 3000/2500 and mine is 2200/1500, find these values in timecyc or FarClp in EditIV (may be I have to increase it in next update too...)

Posted on December 9, 2013 2:46AM by buzzz
More testing reveals:

https://www.mediafire.com/?dc84flu4bekdqnz

https://www.mediafire.com/?4stq3f8ttswxbnt

https://www.mediafire.com/?yz47x87axdso19u

Strange kind of bug where textures "float" above the ground, like road paint when you look at the tires. Also in the last one where you can see a gunshot through the front window follows through to the back and all around the car. Hope I'm not coming across as a nuisance, but an avid fan who wants to help make a flawless mod!

UPDATE 26/01/2014

-Updated to ENB 0.163

-Updated to latest Dax1 shader

-Changed skylighting settings (because of new ENB)

-Back to the original Ice's bloom

-Softer and better quality godrays

-Increased view distance (farclp) - may be decrease performance
Posted on January 26, 2014 7:23AM by buzzz
Is it just me or does SSAO not work on 0.163, even with Dax1's fix?
Posted on January 26, 2014 7:57PM by cp1dell
@cp1dell, I don't know what is the problem, is working fine for me but I remember people who reported that in enb forums, better ask Boris in his forum, he said nobody is interested in this old game anymore so I don't know if he will update enb for gta4 since there is almost no gta4/eflc users in his forum...
Posted on February 6, 2014 10:31AM by buzzz
*. Just because there aren't users on his forum doesn't mean people aren't interested. He should take a look at the ENB Topic on the GTAForums.

Yeah, this seems to be a common problem though since I've seen other people mention it.
Posted on February 7, 2014 4:20PM by cp1dell
buzz por que no puedo abrir tu timecyc con el editiv? he mirado y estan todos los espacios borrados.
Posted on February 10, 2014 4:26AM by raggazam
Yeah what's up with that? I too have tried unlocking it but EditIV won't open it.
Posted on February 11, 2014 4:46PM by cp1dell
UPDATE 16/02/2014

- Update to latest dax1 fix

- New bloom GTAV style lensflares (still w.i.p)

- Better reflections, better vegetation, better clouds and better performance

- Other small changes
Posted on February 16, 2014 6:12AM by buzzz
Love the update. Everything looks a lot nicer, and performance is great.
Posted on February 17, 2014 11:02PM by cp1dell
AWESOME! I didn't realize you updated this. Can't wait to test it! Great job.

Which is more demanding? This, or dax1's Enb Future Release?

I get decent FPS with this. (25 minimum, 40 maximum, about 30 average)

God rays and dof turned off 'cuz they take away like 3-5 fps each.

One question though, during rainy weather, why does the rain come and go in 1-second intervals? Like, rain-1sec-no rain-1sec-rain. And also, I get frequent freezes that lasts only a millisecond but annoys me so much.
Posted on March 18, 2014 10:07AM by zildjian97
*! This enb is good. Either my GTAIV is * up, or GTAIV is more poorly optimized than EFLC. Because I get 30-50fps on EFLC! And no stuttering, unlike GTAIV. Good job! One thing though, is there motion blur at all? Is there none at all or is it just weak cause I'm not seeing it.
Posted on March 18, 2014 10:25AM by zildjian97
excellent work! only one bug to me: blue line appearing sometimes in the screen

anyone?

*sorry for english
Posted on April 8, 2014 11:05PM by brunodrl94
@brunodrl94, thats anamorphic lensflare not a bug

open enbbloom.fx with your notepad and find this:

float fIntensity = 0.5;

and set it to 0, now should looks like this:

float fIntensity = 0;

--------------------------------------

sorry for the lack of updates but I've been working in a new ENB for Los Santos mod, now with decent godrays (finally) and proper performance...

So when ViIV gets compatibility with EFLC and I can test will be released :)
Posted on April 9, 2014 10:26AM by buzzz
thanks man! to me, the best enb for gta along with ice 1.25.

this with ice 1.25 nights would be the perfect enb for me

*sorry for english

buzzz, I've been using your set lately for screening the alpha ViIV. Yaw-dropping sweet! Normally I play using various sets using 1.0.4.0.

Really hope you change the timecycle to a Los Santos 'warm & sunny' setting?

I am having a strange bug though in 1.0.7.0: With many cars the windshields are not visible! Only sometimes they are there for a few minutes. Is this a bug in my scripthook or other script? I'm really clueless here...

Anyway: thanks for sharing man :)
Posted on April 22, 2014 2:05PM by ReNNie
Sorry for late reply I think you already know but thats known as speedhack bug (Boris is already aware about this issue..)

I was making the ENB for IV:LS team and now I'm continuing in my own for ViIV mod, if you are interested I've ported main colors from GTA5 timecyc and made some "proper" godrays (finally) with almost no performance drop and smooth looking, ... whatever, is made from scratch and have nothing in common with this "ENBuzz"
Posted on April 24, 2014 1:49AM by buzzz
UPDATE #2

-New godrays: better looking, better accuracy and better performance.

-New lensflares (just better looking).

-New settings and shaders (lots of thanks to DAX1 again).

------------------------------------------------

I know is not a huge update sorry about that, but I've been working in a new ENB for Los Santos map, I have ported most colors from GTAV timecyc and I'm doing my best to improve performance (will be better than this "ENBuzz" for sure), can't say much more by now, I will just upload here when is finish.

Posted on May 1, 2014 4:33AM by buzzz
Thanks for the update!

Is the Los Santos ENB going to be a separate mod? It'd be much better since those colors and the atmosphere suit V's map. This ENB and most of the other presets suit Liberty City's east coast setting.
Posted on May 1, 2014 2:53PM by cp1dell
Yeah separate mod since everything is different
Posted on May 1, 2014 3:41PM by buzzz
This amazing!! Good work buzzz :)

I made a video "GTA IV with an awesome graphic mod"

10/10 for this cool graphics mod
Posted on May 1, 2014 11:30PM by bstt92
Thanks for the heads-up. Much appreciated buzzz!! :)

And great to hear you are working on a Los Santos set, very much looking forward to that.
Posted on May 2, 2014 2:12AM by ReNNie
this amazing sir :)

Can I take enbeffect.fx for my ENB ? :)
Posted on May 8, 2014 6:24AM by YogiPermana
@ReNNie, I've been working for Los Santos ENB from long time now, it was for IV:LS team first project.

@YogiPermana, feel free to take everything you want, you don't even need to ask for it, as long as you remember credits stuff :)
Posted on May 8, 2014 1:22PM by buzzz
Thank you :)
