Description: Grand Theft Auto 4 - Ultimate Graphics Tweak

Ultimate Graphics Tweak is a little modification which allow you to enable improved post processing effects like Motion Blur and Depth Of Field.
It also smoothens dotted shadows and jaggy edges while keeping whole game sharp and clean. As a result game feels like a movie, and is
visibly smoother even at low frame rates (15-25FPS). This version adds Depth Of Field, Motion Blur, Smooth Shadows
