    Well I for one am certain that the patch caused a pretty noticable drop in performance. The game doesn't feel as smooth for me as it was prior (in the exact same area) and my average fps has most definitely seen a reduction. Anyone else noticed the same?

    The values fix the bug where the shadows look low-res until you get close, then they do a weird transition to high-res. I haven't really tested it for performance but I don't think it impacts fps much.

    Another option for people who need to save fps is disable High Resolution Shadows and use Softer Shadows. Still looks decent. I've also found that the Extra Shadow Distance can be maxed out and Long Shadows enabled with minimal performance loss.

    Fuu******k....The patch screwed up the Social Club files on my pc. Only ways to fix is to uninstall Social Club, which says I have to uninstall ALL ROCKSTAR APPS, meaning the whole game..... another 60gb download.......
    The only version of Social Club installer is v.1.1.5.6. When I try to install, it says I have newer version 1.1.5.8 & it exits.....ARRRRGGGGHHHHH

    why most sites when recommending nvidia cards
    they mention

    660

    760

    980 or 970

    TITAN X



    why not list the 780?

    I feel left out when reading the sites

    if system has enough memory, you can run the game at 4k with everything max except for AA settings. and still get good fps.

    my system commit charge has been running around 17gb with the game.

    nVidia really act like cretins regarding MFAA for SLI -.-

    Not that I've felt the need to OC yet but I can try to throw +100 on the core and +250 on the mem and see what happens :p

    Pffff even with advanced options off i still have fps drops to low 35-40 fps on a gtx 980 i7 3820 4500mhz. FXAA and all options to the max (not MSAA). The framdrops are only in the north east to north on the highway.

    Hey there,

    I've finished a little tool, the GTA 5 settings.xml parser. It's an easy script to convert your settings.xml file to a readable, pastable settings block. No more taking screenshots of your settings, or tediously typing everything.

    It's live on http://www.forceflow.be/gta5settingsparser/

    For example, this is my settings block:

    Thought it might come in handy!

    The game has some color banding issues in some places.

    Why did we require a patch? I have a 21:9 monitor and all seems fine.

    what does it "fix"? it looks excellent for me in 21:9 just setting the rez and leaving the aspect ratio on auto( but i might be missing something? :) )
