|QUOTE (Sonny Red @ Oct 29 2010, 03:46)|
i read the tutorial but the "Open" button in this tool doesnt work for me!
so i cant open any of the 64 nodes.
also, does anybody know what the hell is "row-major order"?
am i right?
and, finally, maybe i need to edit another files, not paths?
I tested the tool and know how to use it but I never made paths and imported such ingame
At first you need the version 1.1download APE 1.1
I believe, it requires Netframe 3 or 3.5 or higherThe nodes.dat:
You can't open nodes.dat in APE
First you must convert the files in a *.dnf -fileconvert all nodesX.dat in a *.dnf -file:
exmport all nodesX.dat from gta3.img into a new folder,
then choose function "Decompile" in APE menue: FILE and navigate then to the new folderloading dnf -file-Path into editor:
choose function "Open" in APE menue: FILE and navigate then to the folder with *.dnf -fileEmpty paths:
You should use empty paths for your first attempt
If you import empty paths into your gta3.img the game don't have traffic then, no cars, no pedsCreate empty paths:
choose Tools in APE menue, then "create empty Nodes"Save paths:
save the path as *.dnf fileconvert *.dnf file:
choose function "Compile" in APE menue: FILE, open the *.dnf file and give a folder to store the nodesX.datMaking paths ingame with memory hack:
Start the game and go the point where you wanna beginn your first path
then press ECS and go back to windows
Now start APE and load empty paths into the editor
Now open Tutorial.pdf which comes with APE 1.1 download, find it in Tutorials & ReadMe folder
READ IT!!!! (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader)
especially the theme 2. Path Editing
As next go to APE and start MemHack
in APE menue: Tools
then go ingame and use this keys to make paths
F4 - Close MemHack
F6 - Mark last PED Node
F7 - Open PED Path | Add PED Node
F8 - Close PED Path | Add last PED Node
F10 - Mark last Car Node
F11 - Open Car Path | Add Car Node
F12 - Close Car Path | Add last Car Node
so far I remember right does this function not work:
" Start GTA San Andreas" of in APE menue: Tools
Please report if you made paths successfull
and describe which keypress you have used to create paths
