Tough times, reinstalling GTA IV around 4-5 times in two days. And I have still not got around to understanding the complexity of installing a few simple mods. Such as textures, or graphical enhancers. Wild enough, I have done it a billion times and I know most of the works of GTA IV. But this much I do not know...
When should I install mods, before or after I patch GTA IV
Why do I get a black screen when I install Icenhancer X
1. You should install mods after you patch your game, that way nothing gets messed up during the patching. 2. What patch are you running iCEnhancer X on? 3. It depends what you want to mod exactly. The two best patches are patch 188.8.131.52. and patch 184.108.40.206. Patch 220.127.116.11. is the best patch for using ENB configurations, like iCEnhancer X, because it is the patch they they are best compatible with. Patch 18.104.22.168. is better for using different types of script mods, like LCPDFR or some traffic fixes, it is also the best patch for playing multiplayer.
man you're totally wrong GTA IV is a great game and extremely well optimized for modding . first when you're newbie at modding you should use automatic installers like GTA vehicle mod installer for example and you should also post your specs , cause the tone of your post makes me think your rig just isn't enought for the game .?
I am fairly skilled with modding, hence I have made mods on games. I understand why you would think that though, but I am having trouble modding the game after it is patched to 22.214.171.124. I understand how to change and modify the game and what each folder or file is for. But I am in-experienced on when or how I should install a mod without f*cking my game up. It seems there is a specific way to do it for every mod involving textures or graphics, because whenever I patch my game it doesn't do well.
I tried to install Realizm IV 6.2 after patching GTA IV to 126.96.36.199 and the game would crash a second after I am inside the game. I see a quick glimpse of gameplay and then it crashed. I've been doing testing and debugging the entire afternoon and still found no solution about installing Ultimate Textures (Realizm IV) after patching 188.8.131.52. Now on the other hand, yes... I am using 184.108.40.206.
Should I try and use 220.127.116.11? And if so, I'll do it right away. I have just done another fresh install...

I don't think there is an iCEnhancer 3.5, do you mean 2.5?
oh, for some reason my reply didn't submit... there are actually a few videos of a 3.5 alpha and I've downloaded it before... but I don't know if it is really a legit 3.5 alpha or if someone renamed it to that.
