Yeah, I get bad slow downs sometimes and on some missions. I just turn shadows off and use the ENB Series mod for EFLC. Turning off shadow did seem to resolve the slow down but hopefully Rockstar will patch it.

BTW, If you're having bad slow downs near the water edge, enable Clip Capture in the menu as a workaround.

I had terrible performance until I turned Shadows OFF. With them OFF I rarely dip below 40. The game doesn't look quite as good, but it certainly does play better which to me is a critical factor.

I'm surprised this has not been pinned and I'm surprised at the level of feedback, since it's already eleven pages.

Here is the thread about it http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=446572

I might be able to answer questions on how to tweak the enbseries.ini and such, so you're welcome to ask.

Yep, but the mod will make the game look better and you can have Ambient Occlusion on so it's not so bad.

They're working on the shadow issue. It's only a matter of time before they fix it.

GTA IV seems a bit worse, but Episodes has been pretty rough for me, especially in the rain and on the water. I've tried lowering texture quality and that, but there's been no real improvement. Having a great time with Ballad, didn't enjoy The Lost so much...

For me and GTA 1.0.6.0 EFLC etc, I turned off SLI, set everything to high, night shadows off, draw distance to 30, detail to 20 and traffic I have on 40. Seems pretty playable. remember there is also the bug where you need to have Clip Capture on, especially need the coast otherwise FPS will be very very low. Next patch should fix this and we can leave it off and gain a few more FPS over all.

Ah, thanks for that. Didn't realize it was a clip capture error.
