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. http://www.gtaforums...st&p=1059078985
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.
