Hi, I recently downloaded the Wheel Deal mod and have been trying to install it using the IMG tool. I've installed other mods before successfully with the IMG tool, but I've only had to edit the gta3.img file. For the wheel mod, after editing gta3.img it says to edit veh_mods.ide, but my version of the IMG Tool (V2) does not open anything other than .img files, so I can't open the .ide file to edit it. Is there some other mod needed other than the IMG tool to edit other file types such as .dat and .ide? Thanks.

Remove read only attribute from the files, use explorer, right click, properties, untick read only.
