Is it just me, or has the last update broken the game?

 

I can only seem to run the game after verifying the files every time I make changes in OpenIV. Otherwise, I get the corrupt game data error.

 

EDIT: Yeah, I can't seem to be able to mod the game's files anymore. Every time I make changes that I know are 100% correct and working, even installing backups that I know work for certain, the game will crash at startup. Something is wrong here.

Okay, I figured out what the problem is. Something's gone haywire with the encryption on carcols.ymt. Prior to the last update, I could edit it with no issues. But ever since the beginning of October, I haven't been able to edit it at all without the game crashing. And even when I replace it with the original copy, it still crashes. I basically have to leave it completely untouched for the game to run.

Today, we are releasing OpenIV 2.9.2. This version does not includes new features but contains important changes to provide support for the latest version of Grand Theft Auto V.

Grand Theft Auto V
First time since 2015, we have updated OpenIV.ASI - our plugin, which provides mods support for Grand Theft Auto V. The latest version of GTA V has some non-critical changes in the code, which affected by OpenIV.ASI, and we made similar changes in our code. Without those changes in OpenIV.ASI, your game had crash during loading screen in some very specific scenario, only when you have Simplified Chinese language selected in game. Use ASI Manager to update OpenIV.ASI in your game folder.

General changes, improvements, and fixes
  • We fixed an issue where sometimes OpenIV crashes while renaming folders inside archives.
  • We fixed an issue where import of texture image with 2x2 sizes was impossible due to infinite loading.
  • We fixed an issue where files was not shown in OpenIV after they was drag-and-dropped in game folder using Windows File Explorer.
You can find change log on our bug-tracker here.

UI Localization
We have written an instruction how to translate OpenIV into your own language and we are calling for you to do so. You can find the localization guide here on GitHub. This version does not have differences from 2.9.1.

Is it normal that converting a BoundBox from .obn to .ybn, it randomly assigns different PolyFlags and MaterialColorIndex? I'm using this as tester and converting it back to .obn
 

Version 43 31
{
	Type BoundBox
	Radius 4.55522000
	AABBMax 3.50000000 2.50000000 1.50000000
	AABBMin -3.50000000 -2.50000000 -1.50000000
	Centroid 0.00000000 0.00000000 0.00000000
	CG 0.00000000 0.00000000 0.00000000
	Margin 0.04000000
	Material
	{
		MaterialIndex 1
		ProcId 2
		RoomId 3
		PedDensity 4
		PolyFlags FORMATS_EMPTY_FLAGS
		MaterialColorIndex 200
	}
}

Hello, I do not understand a thing. Can I ask for an explanation?

 

illSZCzbRY_ngHMKi5yEPw.png

 

As you can see from the screen, I have two modifications installed.

One of them is:

 

<Item>dlcpacks:\wov\</Item>

 

<Item>dlcpacks:\wov_expansion\</Item>

 

The second one is:

 

<item qv="bill1">dlcpacks:\LA_Billboard_P1\</item>

 

<item qv="bill2">dlcpacks:\LA_Billboard_P2\</item>

 

<item qv="bill3">dlcpacks:\Extra_Mod\</item>

 

 

My question refers to this - why do the names of <item qv = "bill1"> <item qv = "bill3"> appear in the file dlclist.xml for this second modification?

 

Despite these differences, the modification is installed correctly. But I am wondering why and why these strange additions of names.

Is the use of these names correct or is it a mistake ??

 

https://pastebin.com/qYZ9edDk

 

Btw. If I install another modification of .OIV from the same author, these strange names are no longer shown.

@Remix1994PL those values are added by the author, as you can see in the installation code:
<archive path="update\update.rpf" createIfNotExist="True" type="RPF7">
	<xml path="common\data\dlclist.xml">
		<remove xpath="/SMandatoryPacksData/Paths/item[@qv='bill1']"/>
		<remove xpath="/SMandatoryPacksData/Paths/item[@qv='bill2']"/>
		<remove xpath="/SMandatoryPacksData/Paths/item[@qv='bill3']"/>
		<add xpath="/SMandatoryPacksData/Paths" append="Last">
			<item qv='bill1'>dlcpacks:\LA_Billboard_P1\</item>
		</add>
		<add xpath="/SMandatoryPacksData/Paths" append="Last">
			<item qv='bill2'>dlcpacks:\LA_Billboard_P2\</item>
		</add>
		<add xpath="/SMandatoryPacksData/Paths" append="Last">
			<item qv='bill3'>dlcpacks:\Extra_Mod\</item>
		</add>
	</xml>
</archive>
He is using them to remove previos version of this mod if it was installed before. Those values should not affect game in any way.

but R* increased the limit with the doomsday heist dlc, it´s now possible up to 1024.
btw. with smuggler run R* added a modkit for the cuban800 to add bombs to it, and that does have id: 285, so it shouldn´be a problem.
is this a limit in openiv that needs to be increased after the doomsday dlc?

@rollschuh2282 well... as for now, you can use XML version of the file to have IDs more than 255.

Do you mean, simply rename the .xml file to .ymt, and it will work?

i found a new bug: when you copy a folder with other folders in it with the windows file explorer to the game folder while openiv is open, it shows the folders but you can´t open them without restarting openiv.

note that the folders aren´t even listed in the "file list"

Because it's very unlikely that anything from ASI manager can cause this issue.

How exactly you copy those folder? Drag-n-drop? Copy/paste? Cut/paste?
Are they copied from same disk volume or from another?

Forgive me if this is common knowledge but I'm somewhat new and a bit of a noob to this wonderful tool, but  -  is it possible to export GTA V cutscene data (character / prop and camera animations, etc.) and import them into 3DS Max somehow?

You can export models (peds/props), but there is no way to export animations yet.

not really:

1 - install a fresh and untouched gta5.
2 - go ingame - pe: number on franklin's basketball jersey is there.
3 - install openIV and asi tool
4 - go ingame - number on franklin's basketball jersey is gone.

5 - number only shows up again, when i start a fresh installed game. just uninstalling asi tool has no effect.


that's all i can say about, absolute no idea why this is happening.

So sometimes openiv.exe seems to stay running in the background after some carcols.ymt editing even though I closed it. Can you look into this?

Installing OpenIV or anything from ASI Manager does not affect your game files permanently unless you edit something.

There was any errors while work or not?
