    Yeah now worries ill post them up tomorrow but first get back to basics.

    In order to make trafficload to work, you must have some files in gta 4 directory:
    - xliveless 0.999b (xlive.dll)
    - scripthook.dll (0.4.0 for patch 1.0.0.4 and 0.5.1 for patch 1.0.0.7)
    - asiloader (dsound.dll) -THIS IS BAD, DO NOT DO THIS, XLIVELESS DOES THIS FOR YOU
    - trafficload.ini and trafficload.asi
    - msvcr100d.dll

    Make sure you have all these files using this taxifix,this is the best one,ive tried all of them,8 in total.

    Dont forget the commandline.txt......very important.
    Right im off to bed ill post the graphics mods im using tomorrow.

    Thanks for the above Veteran, works like a charm.:)

    Does anyone else have any trouble with changing values in the enbseries.ini. I've changed CyclicConfigReading to True which from what I've read means you can edit on the fly via alt+tabing and have also read this guide(http://gtabay.cba.pl/index_dokumentacja_gta4_en.htm) as to what each value does but some are not having any effect when changed.

    I'm using L3EVO's enb

    eg: I thought as a test to see if the changes were actually staying the same or if maybe they were just to subtle to notice, I changed the values below just like the guide above says (examples below) from 0.1 - ctrl+s - alt+tab back gta4 - brightness the same as it was - alt+tab - then all the way up to 10 - ctrl+s - alt+tab back gta4 - brightness the same. I'm confused, the only other setting that works is the reflection values for cars.

    DirectLightingCurve=0.1

    FWIW, L3EVO's ENBs have SSAO and Sky Lighting disabled by default.

    You can toggle SSAO on and off by pressing SHIFT+F10. But by making changes in enbseries.ini, you can make them enabled by default.
    EnableAmbientOcclusion=true
    EnableSkyLighting=true

    Ok firstly make sure you have a fresh clean installation of GTA4 and patch 1.0.4.0 for best results regarding lighting and features,once you have done this make a clean backup of vanilla game installed to somewhere on your Hardrive(s) as you may need to reinstall if your trying different ENB's and mods,this keeps the re-installation down to a minimum.

    Firstly i used Ultimate Textures v2.0 and no other textures,just these,its quite a large download.(8 links)
    http://www.gta-downloads.com/en/gta4/total-conversions/11691-gta-iv-ultimate-textures.html

    I use L3VO ENB...
    http://www.gta4-mods.com/misc/l3evo-3-12-enb-patch-079082-final-f7882
    Although you might want to try Icehancer or BONE ENB as some people have had good results with these,they all work differently for different computers so i suggest you try both,on my PC i prefer L3V0 by along way as it gives me the best results i think.

    I then used Fonias roads and pavements,there is 3 versions to this,the version im using is here...the pavements are a kind mustard/yellow but look nice.The roads are well detailed with a nice thick yellow line in the middle of them as ypu can see from the videos i uploaded.These were a pain in the ass to find btw as all the official links are broken
    www.4shared.com/rar/NxbzW5wt/GTA_IV_Road_Textures_by_Fonias.html


    The second version is Fonias with Pink pavements,yes PINK.
    http://www9.zippyshare.com/v/13674811/file.html

    The 3rd version is LordNeophytes which are good also but there all pretty similar,i tried all of them and i preferred the first link,only choose 1 out of the 3.
    http://www.file-upload.net/download-4229563/gtxd.rar.html

    Im also using Viva new york
    http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=439322

    Im also using Viva new york flashing lights
    http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=439322 (scroll down abit)

    My carpack is this one which is important as carpacks that use alot of data for cars can increase taxi bug so i went with this pack,personally i wouldnt go with any pack over 3-400mb TOPS!My pack is 263mb,so remember packs that use alot of data like 500mb or 700mb can give you massive taxi bug problems even with the fix.
    http://youtu.be/K_2SaDrIHVQ

    Then download trafficload its the best taxifix,once you have downloaded it and extracted it there is a trafficload.ini file where you can alter the spawn rate of cars but it doesnt work if you alter the settings from there default values,it only works on the default values of 100 cars/100pedestrians....if you alter them even just a little the roads will be cleared of all cars and pedestrians.(great for driving around admiring the textures for testing)

    I would suggest that you download the trafficload fix but paste this script in the relevant space and the trafficload will work with whatever you set it the values too.



    [Options] //multipliers in %
    CustomDensity=0 //0 is false 1 is true
    PedDensityMultiplier=400 //100 is default, 50 is half, 200 is double, etc. Value has no effect when CustomDensity is 0
    CarDensityMultiplier=400 //same as peddensitymultiplier
    CarsPerCycle=10 //10

    [AddedCars] //refer to the readme for more info
    Enable=0
    Amount=2
    1=ambulance
    2=firetruk




    In order to make trafficload to work, you must have some files in gta 4 directory:
    - xliveless 0.999b (xlive.dll)
    - scripthook.dll (0.4.0 for patch 1.0.0.4 and 0.5.1 for patch 1.0.0.7)
    - asiloader (dsound.dll) -THIS IS BAD, DO NOT DO THIS, XLIVELESS DOES THIS FOR YOU
    - trafficload.ini and trafficload.asi
    - msvcr100d.dll
    http://www.gta4-mods.com/script/trafficload-f9780

    All the other mods i have installed are realism mods(dont mistake Realizm IV for a gameplay realism mod as its a texture mod and i advise not to use it as its old now and not needed) that affect gameplay are are of personal preference,a good one is cautious drivers as people drive around in cars with there doors locked and wont open them until you pull a gun and point it at the screen which is more realistic and better than running around jacking anything.I have cash point machine,weight mod,car dealer garage,improved police AI etc etc etc.

    Here is alink so you can see the realism mods and download for yourself for your preference,theres loads of great links in this thread pointing to many many mods,i recommend the realism thread.
    http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=480297



    Here is my nvidia inspector settings.
    [​IMG]



    Finally i would suggest that you update your backup folder once you have installed a few mods and you have tested they are working,so if things do mess up you can fall back and not install everything from scratch.:)

    On a side note this mod looks really good but i think it only works with 1.0.7.0,its a fully fledged Police officer mod and its constantly updated I will be playing this sometime when i get around to it.

    Thanks for the above Veteran. Unfortunately the ENB gives me extreme lag & in unplayable, will have to try another one. :(

    As you said EACH ENB works differently for everyone.

    Will have to try an alternative one.

    I tried this but it made no difference whatsoever. I'm getting between 18-25 fps. :(

    Any other ideas? Thanks.

    Im using 302.59 driver and i have set my gta4exe to work in nvidia inspector....i find my fps drops at times but it runs so smooth at 30 fps that you dont notice it,ill make a vid with fps counter running to see what kind of fps im getting and ill post it up.

    You have 2sli cards right one running at 3gb and the other at 1.5gb right?
    Thats 3.5gb in total,so change this to this

    -availablevidmem 4.0

    It will make full use of your memory.

    if you are running the steam version you have to add it to the launch options (in one line instead of below eachother)

    Thanks guys, however, after trying the above I still get around 10-25 fps.

    Even when trying other enb mods it's the same. Just reinstalled GTA IV from scratch and yet I'm getting extremely laggy gameplay.

    I WISH I never fuccked around with GTA IV since I was previously getting a solid frame rate of 60 frames...

    My brother who also has GTA IV & is running DarKs enb get's between 50-60 fps & he has a GTX 560!

    I've never had this problem before, no matter what enb I'm using it's extremely laggy.

    So far tried 3-4 different enb's and all are giving me lag.

    This has NEVER happened before so I'm really confused as to why it's happening...

    Yeah i checked that video....Whats your gpu settings on in the game?
    Try these enb settings...supposed to help with lag...could be a gpu driver issue also.
