Re: GTA Heaven

I'm not able to visualize what you mean by pixellated shadows. If you could point out from a screenshot then that would be helpful.

please take a look at my GTA IV screenshots. the settings i have used are :-
-1680 x 1050(60hz)
-texture quality- high; render quality- highest
a)view distance- 30
b)detail distance- 70
c)vehicle density- 50
d)shadow density- 10

at these settings the game is running smoothly..no hanging, freezing, crashing whatsoever even after playing around for near 3 hrs.

take a look around the edges of the shadows..they look like a group of small dots..thats what i meant by pixellated shadows...any cure for them?:(

Re: GTA Heaven

LOL! Oh that's what you meant by pixellated shadows. Everyone has the same issue dude. The shadows are broken because of the lack of proper AA on objects. So when they reflect shadows they appear to be jagged as well. Hence the mixed effect which you have in front of you. Nothing major. Just ignore it & move on. ;)

Re: GTA Heaven

i discovered a thing.. either you set the gfx at highest.. the GFx does not change.. i tested it and found nothing much changing.. i think these guys did not change any overlays for the Gfx in all modes.. they are almost same...

Re: GTA Heaven

The screenshots look fine. I have just taken a few. Hate FRAPS running in the background.

http://i34.tinypic.com/123mmva.jpg

I'm playing at 1280x1024 @75Hz with Texture Quality on High & Render Quality on Very High. Rest of them are pretty standard.

THANX..i tried to check my fps using FRAPS but after playing the game for only about 2 minutes it crashed with an error..so i quit FRAPS & then restarted the game..played for around half an hour & the game ran fine, no crashing or freezing..wonder what FRAPS did!?:confused:

I read somewhere that the patch or new gfx drivers solve this issue.
 
Re: GTA Heaven

Now I'm ignoring the minor issues like shadows and really enjoying the game. Everything is maxed out and I am getting 25-30 FPS on 1680X1050.
Even at 20 FPS the game seems to run normally,no lags nothing.
Just a question,isn't the AA in this game?Their is a bit of jerkiness in buildings.

Re: GTA Heaven

Would nvidia GTX 260 216, Intel i7 or c2d E8500,4GB RAM manage the game on High Graphics? If not please suggest me a suitable pc config

Nope. But if you press the 'P' key it will apply a fake blur effect which reduces the jaggies a bit. It's supposed to be a console-like effect but looks pathetic.

@767hsm.221bx: Don't bother running the benchmarking tool. It's a complete waste of time & often misleading. The in-game performance & benchmark results vary a lot.

Back to the game. I have finally started dating Kate on Packie's advice. She is a tough one to get & gets foul mouthed when she is drunk. :D

My advice for a steady vehicle is the Dodge Viper GT. It's awesome when it comes to handling, braking & overall looks as well. Got a Ferrari F30 at some point as well but had to ditch that to ride a cops car. :mad:

Went for a boating trip with Brucie to check out the Statue of Freedom & ended up with a wanted level 5 on the cops radar. Got away with it somehow but won't be cruising off shore limits the next time. :sad:

You cant predict performance with this game, there are many many issues..it works for some and just doesnt for others...The gtx 260 should be able to handle it...But i have seen that people have had better performance with core i7...Id say fget this game at high settings if you dont have a quad core at the very least
