It is quite messed up. A few days ago, the powers that be decided to reorganize the modding section a bit. In doing that, they merged several (maybe even all) of our threads into this one thread and dumped us in the main section. After pleading my case, they agreed to give us the forum back. I provided a link to an archive version of the site so they can hopefully restore as many of the topics as possible. But they may have to be manually recreated :-/

 

But at least we have a sub-forum back and I have the ability to edit things as needed.

Well that's a bit painful. I hope this can get sorted out.

Me too. uNi was the one who said he was going to restore the folders. I've been patient so far. Even the top 5 topics or so would be okay.

It's possible to view an archive of this sub forum via the internet wayback machine. It might be possible to restore some topics using what's found here.

 

http://web.archive.o...a-liberty-city/

 

From Sept. 24 of this year.

 

EDIT:::
 
I tried a straight copy/paste here and it looked good at first. It kept all the tables and everything, but as soon as I posted it everything reverted to plain text and looked like hell. Might have to go through and re-do all the tables. I can't directly quote it because so far as I know it's not possible to login on an archived version of the site.
 
Sheeeit.

I'm sure it is possible, but it's beyond my ability. I asked Silent if he could figure it out from there and he admitted he could not. The Beta 3.2 files are available here.

I thought it'd be easier to try and reach MM... but the time proves me false.

Enough time has passed now, that I'm wondering even if we found ModelingMan even he might not remember how he did it.

I've been restoring threads by hand using the google archive, since the forum's search seem a bit broken atm. Which ones do you also need back?

You could also bring Unofficial Mods? I have some ideas for this TC that come from Xbox Versions of GTA III and Vice City.

Hey Craig, what about using my patches to get active menu color back on VC engine and some GTA stories features?

You can test it on original VC.

Oh my, so that's what happens when my computer malfunctions for a few weeks - entire subforums get swallowed in the meantime. :panic:

And I was wondering already why I couldn't see staff forums anymore and had lost some buttons in my button bar...

 

Upside: No posts were lost (or were there?)

 

Downside: this mess can never be untangled (unless someone with access to the SQL database of the board, a SQL backup from a few weeks ago, and excellent understanding of the IP.Board database schema was to have a go at fixing it - and even such hypothetical individual would need quite some time to restore things.

 

Worst: ALL links in the LC topics that pointed to other posts in the LC subforum are now invalid, I think.

 

For posterity's sake - this "thread that started it all" (and now contains everything GTA:LC it seems) was once named "mods for GTA:LC" when initially created by Demarest.

 

Craig, do you maybe want to split at least this thread in two parts at Feb 06, 2004 (the date the subforum was originally established and the old all-in-one thread closed.), so the original original thread can be closed again? I can't do it anymore.

Then again, it would only shave off 35 pages off this thread, so maybe I'm just too sentimental.

 

EDIT: Oh, the subforum was previously called "GTA Liberty City" - now it's just an acronym with no explanation in the forum list. (Not to be fussy, I acknowledge and appreciate the fact that the subforum was recreated at all, just thought I'd mention it.)

 

EDIT2: This super-merge has made this topic one of the most viewed topics on GTAF ever!

Nice to see you again! 

 

I'm not sure what the best solution is for this board. It seems it cannot just be reset to how it was. We may have to manually rebuild a few threads from one of the Internet archive sites. That's something I currently do not have the time (or desire) to do. Splitting that thread might be nice. I might give that a try.

polished off gta 3 and installed LC just to test it out

works perfectly fine, it's everything else that's broken. RIP DisableCulling=0

 

EDIT: tested it some more and there is one bug - it still shows even when you break the traffic light, looks strange because it kind of floats from the message box
