**EDIT** Before you do ANYTHING. Make sure you Have a Fresh Untainted (unmodified) Copy of your game. Just in case things go bad and we can't fix it.

Ok.

1.(Assuming your ICenhancer is in a .rar file) Double Click on the *.rar file containing your ICenhancer. Highlight All Contents and Click 'Extract To'.

2.Extract your ICenhancer files into your GTA IV Directory.
Steam: C:/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/*username*/common/GTA IV/GTA IV/

Retail: C:/Program Files/Rockstar Games/GTA IV/

3.Once Extracted, Have a quick look at the Readme file as it will tell you how to add/change extras like Light Shafts and Motion Blur and most likely have other little tips.

4. Launch GTA IV. Profit.

If you run into any Problems, Post back here with any error messages you get and I will try and help you.

Enjoy.

I didn't copy it, unfortunately. At least the main folder.

The one I downloaded was not a rar, which was from the mod creators site. Which had just folders with random files, ugh... so confusing and not very user friendly at all.

I extracted the main, but there's these other files.

Would you mind posting a link to where you downloaded the ICenhancer from. I will download it and Tell you Exactly what needs to be done. Ok?

Wow 250mb Download! I'm at work, I kinda think that it's not exactly feasible for me At the Moment.

From What I saw though. If you Copy and Paste all the Files from the 'Main' Folder into your GTA IV Directory, You should be all good. If you are still having problems, Try the Readme file. It should explain how to correctly install the mod.

If you're running the Steam version, I recommend using this ENB configuration instead. It's simpler to install, runs smoother, includes backups, and looks much better in my opinion.

To install it just open the .zip folder, double click the 'ENB Files for GTAIV and EFLC' folder, highlight everything inside the folder, and drag everything you've highlighted into your GTAIV directory, which is located in: C:\Program Files\steam\steamapps\common\grand theft auto iv\gtaiv

GTAIV/EFLC allow you to force certain commands onto the game by having a "commandline.txt" file in the game's root folder.

Instead of trying to use any special commands from Steams launch options for these games, the commandline.txt is where commands should go. Plus the .txt file method allows for countless amounts of commands, which are used whenever the game is launched.

For most mods and to help allow the game to run better, this method is strongly suggested.

Aside from the commandline.txt, this ENB config contains files needed for most 3rd party mods to run better and look better. Such as better shaders and a more defined D3D9.DLL as well as other files which allow for better visuals in-game.

Also helps to turn the in-game contrast way up and the brightness way down, then adjust your display if needed. This way the game gamma/coloring looks much more accurate.

I was using that up until I rebuilt my PC, I tried to redownload and it for some reason the file is broken.

Instead I've tried Icenhancer 2.0N and it this version just screws up the main menu/UI, it would be great if some one could tell me how to fix it.

The file is old now anyways. As it is 1.62
Go >here< and download the latest version to date, which is 2.01

Keep this link, as that is where to look for updated versions of ENB as they become available. They constantly working on this mod to tweak it and work out the bugs. So it updates often.
