Grand Theft Auto IV - Photorealistic MOD by somebody2978 Grand Theft Auto IV - Photorealistic MOD by somebody2978

v2: Same as v1 but rebalanced for better lighting on nocturnal environments. Only for GTA4 1040.
v3: iCEnhancer v3 Rev2 edited for more photorealistic graphics. For GTA4 1040 / GTA4 1070 / EFLC 1120.

Dynamic DoF method (Default) (v1/v2):
EFLC v3:

tried every enb and  ice preset available and honestly your version is the best that is out there, personally. the graphics are very sharp and not washed up, blurry or fuzzy looking.  the colors are very vibrant but not to the point of saturation. the reflections and the sun rays make it look realistic, it looks great especially in the daytime. i even noticed the two tone colors at night, giving off the image of city lights lighting up the horizon.

only gripe is that we cant adjust the static or dynamic focusing or the strength. is there any way to make the static or dynamic depth of field higher?? using version 2 the recommended one for 1040.

Yes. Open with winrar, inside there are a file with intensity variables that can be modified.
I left things to do in this mod, but as GTA5 was released I did not give too much importance.
However, I noticed there are many details that are better in this mod: more realistic violence, balanced physical (between fun and realistic), depth of field, traffic, etc.
v2 is great overall, v3 only rain effect is great.

tried v3 but the colors feel  a bit faded compared to v2. v2 just looks great, your preset is the closest thing to those photorealistic  gta4 youtube vids. 

do you know which files you mean. i googled and went through ini and config files but i couldnt find any that could change the blur intensity and the strength of the focus for the static and dynamic depths of fields.

The problem is that v3 is based in, it is a graphics engine cut version from v1.0.4.0. Ice La Glace (original modder) struggled to create improvements, editing options were limited.
Therefore, the best graphics are in the v2 ( for GTA4) because it uses more shaders.
There is a variable called BlurIntensity (iceshader.fx).
I just made an update of definition and brightness levels for an LCD, as my old monitor was a CRT.
