I'm currently trying to find the computer generated BING BONG sound from the GPS and not the Bing Bong.wav that can be found on the DEFAULT under gps.rpf.
So far I only managed to find GPS_BONG from the RESIDENT.rpf but have no luck finding the GPS_BING.
Anyone managed to find it? I would like to use it for customizing my GPS voice.

| Can you add cars but not replace with SPARKIV ? |
i really want to add cars rather than replace ...
You'd need to change a sh*tload of other things for that in order for the game not to go haywire. There's a tutorial on that somehwere on this forum.
SparkIV crashes whenever I want to import textures into a wtd file. What could be the cause of this?
Posted 09 January 2011 - 05:53 PM
Any Ideas?? My GTAIV is the steam copy if that makes a difference.
Posted 16 January 2011 - 04:50 PM
Now, I've read in the changelog that Spark IV can be used to edit texture mapping for models. How can I do that?

right after I start SparkIV it crashes... I used it about 30min ago, and it worked fine all the time. But now nothing works. I downloaded the newest version, but get the same problem.
This is the error:
| Problem Event Name: CLR20r3|
Problem Signature 01: sparkiv.exe
Problem Signature 02: 0.6.9.0
Problem Signature 03: 4cbb7c5e

Problem Signature 09: System.IO.DirectoryNotFound
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1031
Like I sad it worked 30min ago.
I allready tried different versions, admin rights and compatible mode... nothing.
I hope someone can help... GTAIV is sh*t without being able to add mods cars sounds and textures
Thank you in advance.
[SIZE=7]SOLVED! "Thanks to aru: @mcal9909.. did you delete/reinstall GTAIV recently? It looks like its trying to find some directory and failing. I'd think its trying to find your GTAIV directory from your registry and failing. Try putting a gtaiv.exe in the same directory as SparkIV."/[SIZE=7]

so, if i don't have gta 4 installed i can't mod the gta 4 cars??
it seems right now that i can only mod the cars from gta eflc. whenever i try to open spark IV for gta 4 is shows me an error.
how can i mod the cars without installing gta 4?
Posted 19 April 2011 - 04:13 AM
now i know how to mod the card.
i was scrolling all the way dont on spark IV and that's why i was only able to modify the cars from TLAD. then i scrolled up and found the vehicles from gta 4 and TBoGT.
but i have another question.
would i be able to raplce one car with another coplete different car?
lest say i have a habanero (the one that looks like a lexus SUV 2009) can i mod it to be a mazda 3 2010?
to me, it looks more to a mazda 3 than a lexus like they say on GTA WIKIA.
so would be there any problem if i do that? they both look similar.

Couldn't live without it! Having a problem. I'll describe my method below. Keep in mind, the same result is achieved by importing a car as well.
Fresh install of 188.8.131.52 > Use SparkIV (Disk 2 - e:\GTAIV Files>SparkIV>SparkIV.exe) > Open manhat09.img file (Default location - Program files) > Import Textures from E:\GTAIV Files\Buildings and Interior Mods>VivaNewYork\ > Rebuild > Save.
*Navigating to IMG files in Program Files I used a shortcut on the desktop to Rockstar folder in Program Files
*When Importing while in SparkIV, I use a shortcut on the desktop to second hard drive for GTAIV files (mods)
So, step by step would be: Import > Click Desktop Button > Double-Click GTAIV files Shortcut > Proceed to Import Files from GTAIV files location.---
Could there be something wrong with using shortcuts? Perhaps some sort of pathing issue? Too long path? File Name? Sounds odd, but need to ask.
The issue resulting from trying to import (I am running 184.108.40.206 now, but the same stuttering was evident while on 220.127.116.11 as well) is that the game stutters and locks for a random amount of time. Usually lasting anywhere from 7 seconds to 30 seconds. If you haven't been able to joust the game by pressing Spacebar, Enter, Left-Click + Random Buttons, the display driver usually crashes or the game crashes altogether.
This only came about after I attempted to use SparkIV to import. I restored from backup my manhat09 file, worked like a charm again, but then on import of Dodge Challenger > Game stutters and crashes.
Recommendations and information would be VERY MUCH appreciated! I can't live without this tool!
I guess what I am asking for is:
1) Does anyone else have corruption issues with SparkIV?
2) Is there some sort of "Unencrypted" IMG files for GTA IV floating around the internet?
3) Is there an alternative program to SparkIV if there are no clear understandings of why this happens "sometimes" with SparkIV?
4) What do the majority of modders use all the time on 18.104.22.168 or 22.214.171.124 to mod in cars etc? Are they/you having unexplained stuttering / crashing problems?
5) Do you have import 1 file at a time? OR is it safe to import many files at one time and rebuild at once?
6) Does anyone see anything wrong with using shortcuts while opening/importing (while in SparkIV)? Could that be the source of the stuttering problems?
7) Can anyone see anything wrong with something I am doing when opening/importing? The issue only surfaces after using SparkIV to mod something in. Which, makes me wonder if I am doing something wrong.

Here is OpenIV, is not SparkIV alternative, is better than SparkIV.
(But I think it like author of OpenIV )
Posted 29 April 2011 - 06:49 PM
Unfortunately, I tried OpenIV with the same result. Un-touched GTA IV (No Mods Except Trainer) = No Problems. OpenIV or SparkIV adding any car, texture or model = Stuttering or Crash.
Not really sure what to think of the problem. It's random and odd.
