Been using mods in other games, been a bit easy in ones like x3 the reunion.

However I have followed Alci tool tutorial for adding cars, etc.

My one problem editing the .dat file.

Learned notepad doesnt do it. IPL Notepad messed it up so it crashed everytime.

tried gmmm (i think it is, the one that shows the vehicle as you do it), i couldnt get it to embed? when you click the question mark after you install it, gave me an error, tried running it anyways and it was a serious case of hit or miss for functioning (figured it didnt work with this one due to running vista).

tried using a free hexa download and it takes a bit of learning before I can use that effectively.

Is there a tool that is simple like notepad and keeps the file in .dat format afterwards?

anyhelp will be greatly appreciated!

notepad and GGMM do NOT corrupt the files, especially Notepad.

The only thing i can think of is that the line you are trying to add is faulty thus crashing the game no matter what tool you use. Just leave it as it is, the handling wont change much i guess.

Ok I just tried this and hopefully it will work.

I opened the gta.dat with notepad.

Saved it to my desktop.

DL'ed and used Jar Jar's text encoder v4

I tried originally with this is to open the dat directly through the text encoder from jar jar and that doesnt work, so hopefully the above will work.

no it doesn't. and i maybe found your problem; u're using version 2.0 of gtasa. downgrade gtasa 2.0 to 1.0 with the downgrader patch, maybe this should fix everithing.
PD: google for the downgrader patch
