skip forward a couple weeks, desktop is all back and good, laptop had to be sent back cause of a problem with it, but all the files are back on my computer, i go to put them in the VC directory and when i load up the game it dosn't work.
then i realized that i didn't copy over the gta3.dir file. honestly, i have pretty much every car replaced in the game and i really dont feel like going through all that work again so is there a way to create a dir file from just a gta3.img file? i've tried using differeing IMG editors but they wont even open the file unless theres a dir file with it.
i know that theres probably some dumb way to get this to work, but i cant figure it out.
