| Alright. I think I know where this "r2 removal thing" comes from. It comes from people not reading page 26 of this topic. On page 26, I released a version dubbed v2 that had the new offset for the encryption key in the GTAIV V3 US EXE. |
Oh and hey, no "edited by" on the post! So the bottom line? Read what you haven't read before you start to make assumptions.
As for the "OMG U R ARU!11!" or "OMG U AND ARU WORK TOGEATHER!!!11" posts,
1. As I've said before, I'm not Aru. Would I love to be Aru? Hell yes! But I respect Aru too much to claim I'm him.
2. Aru would have zero use for me as I don't know the inter-workings of C#. I still don't even fully have the basics of VB down.
The reason I'm able to find the key in the EXE and update SparkIV to work? I use common scene. A 10 year old, provided he wasn't totally lazy and brain dead, could do what I did.
As for this,
|Moderator DEXX said that it is against forum rules for a program like this to exist!|
In that case, DeXX will have to remove OpenIV as well since both SparkIV and OpenIV do NOTHING special to the archives to work on V3. Besides, the only thing to can do really is custom textures and models which don't effect all clients. Guess what the people will see if you switch the glock with a rocket launcher model? A glock model! If you switch the glock model with the rocket launcher model, your still only going to be shooting glock bullets until you edit the weapons file. Which in that case, the game won't let you on multiplayer.
I, for one, am done debating this.
No it has nothing to do with page 26! The file was download from the official link and it was then changed back to the old version! But you say thats not possible so what ever we can move past that and i'll even appoligize for my friends for saying Aru had anything to do wiith this but lets get to the real point here you have completely admitted making sparkiv work for gtaiv exe 184.108.40.206 which the official version does not allow! By being able to edit the 220.127.116.11 version of the gtaiv exe and you apperently without knowing it allowed mods online by making the program work with version 18.104.22.168 of the game even if it just allows texture and model mods like you say! (i will test other types later!)
What I don't understand is why my damn friends were banned for talking about me and for pointing out that you broke the forum rules making mods playable online and that Aru was responsible for making the program in the first place which is just as bad?
I agree openiv as well as sparkiv should be removed from these forums and so should all tools that edit a game that Rockstar does not want edited!
Also if these forums are gonna ban people just because they talk about Switch Designs then they should remove any post that Switch Designs has ever made as well as everyone that says his name!
Those poor guys above didn't break forums rules but because they pointed out that someone else did and are my friends they get banned????? WTF!
These people are all not me, believe me when I wanna say something here you will know it is me cause I'll tell you it's me!
You think that banning me will stop me from being here but it won't and theres nothing you or anyone can do about it! If people can break the rules by making tools that allow mods online in 22.214.171.124 when moderators have said not to do so in these forums then I can break the rules by comming back here everyday as someone new!
EDIT: Also after further testing it seems that this version or SparkIVr2 only allows model and texture mods online, so if you wanna use any other types of mods you will need to use them on a 126.96.36.199 version of the game!
You were right about that and sry I didn't test it eariler but it still does allow some types of mods online! It still allows some mods and edits game files that Rockstar tried to stop by changing the location of the key on you guys!
