ShadowHerder's Realistic Graphics Mod V1

by Shadowherder
Please explain why you're reporting this file:

I tried to get a nice realistic look but as you all know it is tricky or at least very time consuming to get every weather and time dynamic to look right but you have to admit that such an old game can look better than many next gen games is awesome.
Reports say that it does not work with latest patch.

You can always try different resolutions if it is choppy

@Shadowherderdo you think my graphics card and processor are powerful enough to use this mod and other enbs?
Posted on June 17, 2014 11:31PM by gtaking12
i dont see why not, some enb dont really strain your computer any more than original gta iv. It is the forced anti aliasing that may hurt your performance.

All you can do is try or someone with more knowledge can chime in.

well these specs are the specs of a pc i am buying off of craigslist tomorrow andi hope it works.
Posted on June 17, 2014 11:54PM by gtaking12
@Shadowherderdowhat are your specs?

how does it work with ELS? looks good?

You are "stealing" Jumper_311 Ice 20N settings.. You modded this .. And it looks not good.. The sky is really bad where are the clouds? I'm making ENB's for me but this hipe of your enb is unfair. Jumper_311 habe the original and better settings than you... Sorry for my opinion.:)

In all honesty I used Jumpers rar file as a template. I assure you there is very little that is jumper's as the config, shaderfx, visual effects, textures and are all customized by me. I am glad you see the resemblance and yes the sky is bright sometimes.

If you like the lame gta v look then download someone elses enb or make your own. This was made for me and me only but some people requested it.

On a bright day you would not see the cloud clamps at the horizon. Thats just me, like I said. Dont like it, download someone else's then * to them that it looks like * on your rig.

@Gtaking12 your gpu is really weak and your cpu isnt the greatest. I suggest you build your own pc as its much cheaper and costs a lot less.

No credits to IceLaGlace or Jumper.

A lot of files are * like the DX11 or icegodrays.

And only silly changes to the iceconfig.ini, not even timecyc work..

Its free, i worked on it for free. You can try it for free and delete it for free, you can try to make it better and share it.

Either way its one of the best ones I have seen and I spent lots of time on it.

I have yet to see one better. Thanks for trying.

Here is JUMPERS311's settings, as you can see mine is quite different.

Mine looks better to me and that is all that mattered.

can u pls tell me how do I install this??????????????????????????? cuz its not working for me..
Posted on June 22, 2014 9:00AM by Harry868
I believe that you will need to install Icenhancer 2.0n first. One that is working you should be able to unrar into your gta directory.

I am not a pro at this either so If someone has a better explanation feel free to help.

This is a great community that shares the same goal in bettering ones experience in the game of choice.

Great graphics. I'll test it out 9/10

By the way: do you or anyone else know how to take screenshots in-game? I use Steam, but my cars don't have AA, even though I've forced it. In you video, I see no cracked lines. I'm making a portfolio of my cars and textures, but they all look really "cracked".

I have to say. 10/10, best ENB I've seen and used yet.

One improvement you can do is add a little bit more colors, it would make it feel more lively.

So I've added a video. Thanks again for this terrific mod, Shadowherder. It's a joy for the eyes. No lagg whatsoever, even with AA turned on.

I copied and pasted all of the files correctly but the game crashed. Do you know why and how I can fix this
Posted on August 4, 2014 2:53PM by gotrice541
I experienced lag during video editor rendering.

32GB Quad Channel DDR3 at 1600MHz

Intel Core i7 3960X Extreme Edition 6 Core

Nvidia GeForce GTX 680

Great to play with, but making videos not so much. 8/10
