Permissions and credits

GTA 4 Beautification Project
Natural and less brown-ish lighting

This page only contains the ReShade/Render settings
Visit GTA 4 Beautification Project for the complete guide

Version 1.1

Graphics Overhaul:
This is a custom ReShade, with modified render settings for much better lighting, AA, reflection and MXAO.
It works for both GTA 4 & GTA 4: Episodes from Liberty City. And GTA IV - Complete Edition.

If the game runs fine, but looks messed up (Black sky, missing UI), just press the End key, and click "Reload".
Wait 2-3 seconds and everything will 
look just fine.

Note for Windows 10: (PLEASE READ)
The Creators update for Windows 10 introduced a wide variety of problems, especially for games with custom renders.
If you encounter problems like messed-up graphics or extreme slowdowns, then read how to fix it here: (LINK)
*Follow the steps in number 4.

If it still doesn't work:
Then Windows 10 is somehow still blocking the custom render file. Search Google for alternative ways of forcing Windows 10 to use custom d3d files.

Just remove the ReShade files. Delete "d3d9.dll", "d3d9.ini" and "Reshade.ini", but leave everything else. This will disable ReShade (AA, MXAO & bloom), but it will keep the natural colors and lighting. This will work on any system and any version of Windows, regardless of settings and services.
