v7test5 is now online, with the contents of test4, but easier installation.
test4 featured the interior of Marco's Bistro as well as a shaking car crusher and an optimized EVC Export routine. You should now be able to play through all storyline missions as intended again.
The faulty code sections in 'Chaperone' and 'Gone Fishing' have been commented out, that means it shouldn't crash there anymore.
To activate the storyline mode you'll need to use the Show Config utility. Click Advanced, switch to the Debug tab and untick the box besides 'Use Debug SCM' , apply the changes, close the Launcher interface (DON'T click the 'Launch' button) and then start LC as usual.
You should do a complete reinstall of LC onto a clean (that is, unmodded) install of VC - DON'T just install this over your current LC setup. Consult the readme included (or the first post of the Help & Questions topic
)) for detailed instructions.
In case you're experiencing crashes when clicking 'Start new game' or if you can't configure your audio settings ("No Audio Hardware detected" appears at the bottom of the screen when you try to open the Audio options), check out the Help & Questions topic too. If it still doesn't work, only install the base LC mod package, no SFX, no GTA3 radio. If it still doesn't work, post there and we'll try to find out what's wrong.
There is still some minor issues with PED and vehicle spawning and despawning ranges, but these are very minor and most people probably won't notice them. We are working on getting the settings for these correct anyway, so please don't report on this issue.
All other problems can be reported as normal in the Bugs, Glitches and Incompletes
) topic. Please consult the Checklist
) first though, to make sure your issue hasn't already been reported.
