Gta 4 Icenhancer 3.0 Comparison Essay

Fan-made replacement models and textures whatnot have been jazzing up games for decades, but recent years have seen the curious development of custom cinematography. Tools like ENB and SweetFX jack into a game’s rendering pipeline, letting people create their own vision by tweaking things like lighting, shadows, colours, reflections, anti-aliasing, and all manner of blooms and blurs. While some try to bring a look closer to reality, others go more moody.

Perhaps the most popular of these for Grand Theft Auto IV is iCEnhancer, adding enough fancy effects and tonal tweaks to make a six-year-old game look fresh as a daisy. Version 3.0 has now arrived, with plenty of new prettiness and a little extra performance.

iCEnhancer is built around SweetFX and ENB, with some other changes and optional high-res textures for roads, vegetation, fancy blood, and metallic car paint. You’ll find the lot on the official site. Adding all this stuff naturally affects performance, so you might want to nab this low-end config if it’s too taxing for your PC. Creator Hayssam Keilany recommends a few other mods too.

Version 3.0 brings moving clouds, better godrays, motion blur, and other fanciness. This may be the last release for a while, as Keilany is taking a break, a bit upset with The Internet.

But if iCEnhancer’s showy cinematic look isn’t for you, hey, oodles of other folks are making profiles and mods for GTA IV. The wonders of downloadable cinematography!

Here, look at how pretty and shiny this is (and gosh it definitely is shiny):

Grand Theft Auto IV, iCEnhancer, mod,

Today is a bad day not to already have sixteen gigabytes of Grand Theft Auto IV already installed on your hard drive. Why? Because if, like me, you don’t you’re going to have to wait half a day to download it before you can look at the following incredi-mod yourself. Can it possibly live up to this wonderful, beautiful video? I want to know – but I’m only 5 per cent into the download. And even when it’s finished it probably won’t run anyway. Noooo!

What iCEnhancer 1.2 primarily does it add new shader effects to the game, as well as various extra lighting effects. Much of this constitutes a compliation of existent mods from other creators, so props and stuff to them too. There are a great many other GTA IV graphics upgraders out there by the way, none of which I have tried, so don’t presume this is the best of them just cos it’s posted here. I just liked the video!

Apparently it doesn’t work at all well on the later GTA IV patches, annoyingly – so if you have a way to revert yours to version 1.0.4.0 you’re going to have a better time with this. Of course, my copy’s via Steam, which always updates to the latest patch, so I’m screwed. Typical.
