One more thing:
If everything goes as planned, Update 2 for Xbox mod v1.0 will be released before Christmas. I'll post more details later.

Good to hear that. smile.gif

The folder where I uploaded the radio stations was down for 2 weeks. If there was any one who tried to download them - I'm Sorry. I have uploaded them again and here is the link: http://www.4shared.c...o_Stations.html
As I mentioned long time ago - the radios are in wave-mp3 format. This is the best way to have maximum quality and less file size.

The files were approved. Download


Installation is really simple:

1) Install GTA3 Xbox mod v1.0 and apply Update 1 if you haven't already.
2) Run "update2_install.exe", browse to folder where Xbox mod is installed and click "Patch!".
3) Go to GTAIII\models folder and manually rebuild both IMG archives.


In order to install a new vehicle horn sound you must follow the steps below:

1) Download and install LithJoe's GTA3 Audio Editor (link)
2) Open sfx.raw with Audio Editor (the file is located in GTAIII\audio)
3) Replace sfx00006 with the new one included in the audio folder
4) Rebuild archive

Good things to include:
- Auto-detection of install, with checking the existence of a registry key (CD/DVD or Steam cases).
- Tell users how to "manually rebuild both IMG", as I'm not sure how people which isn't used to GTA modding can guess how to ^^"

Edit:

Well, I guess the HUD reflection bug can be as well "fixed"? I think VCS PC team achieved it smile.gif

Okay, so people say you need a No-CD Crack to use the HQ Radio Stations. What if we are using the Steam version?

EDIT: Wow, you need to buy a premium account on 4shared to even download the radio stations. Screw that.

Deleting the d3dx DLLs:
- Resolution forced to 640x480
- Laptop making music, dunno if is tries to kill the HDD or something
- Display is very dark, moving in menus makes it more or less bright...

While installing the updates I did get the error message "cannot open file enbseries.ini". I used the steam fix.

That fixed the black cars, but Catalina still looks like that, and the trees look like that as well.

What are the Steam version differences compared to the 1.1 CD/DVD distrib?

I thought it was only a different EXE, seems not?

Different EXE and messed up particle.txd. It also doesn't create txd.img if I remember well. It's just premade in the package.

What does it mean by manually rebuilding the IMG archives? I think that's what's causing the white textures.

Hello, I am new to the PC version of GTA3 so I don't know what any of the files do. I am having trouble with the black cars error.

When I install the base mod, the game works fine. However, installing any further updates causes the black cars glitch. I use the steam version and install the steamfix after installing the first fullinstall from update 1.

In plain english, what do I do to fix the black cars glitch when playing using steam?

Thanks and great mod so far.

Also the notorious headlight corona bug is fixed on steam version.

1) Download IMG tool
2) Open txd.img file with IMG tool (the file is located in GTAIII\models)
3) There should be an option called "rebuild archive". Click that
4) Wait until the archive is rebuilt

If this doesn't solve your problem try this:

1) Install Grand Theft Auto 3
2) Start the game
3) Set your graphics settings and then start a new game at least once
4) Play for a while and then exit the game
5) Delete gta3.set file in Documents/GTA3 User Files
6) Install Xbox mod
7) Change your graphics setting again and load the game

You have 3 options:
1) Download a different EXE
2) Delete iiigfx.flt file in the main GTA3 folder (where EXE is located)
3) Replace particle.txd with a non steam one, as sibs44 suggested a few posts earlier

I fixed it. I didn't copy the files from the mod to the game directory. Also, where can I get the new sfx00006?
