Hi,
i've just updated my GTA SA Recoverer to version 1.1.1 and made the same tool for GTA IV. Some errors should be fixed now. You can recover every file with this tool and your gta dvd without reinstalling it only because you have edited one file and forgot to make a backup.

HowTo:
---------

0. Start the tool
1. Select your SanAndreas Directory
2. Select your DVD-ROM Drive
3. Choose a category on the left side
4. Choose a file you want to recover
5. Put your SanAndreas DVD in your DVD-ROM Drive
6. Click 'Recover' and wait a few seconds/minutes
7. The file has been overwritten and the game can be started (or modded) again

Download - GTA SA Recoverer 1.1.1: http://rapidshare.co...a_recoverer.rar


The same tool is also available for GTA IV:
GTA IV - Recoverer
Version: 2.0.0

About this program and how it works / how to use it:
----------------------------------------------
After you have edited your GTA IV files, you start the game and it crashes. Then you realize that you forgot to make a backup. Normally, you now have to reinstall the game! sad.gif

With this tool, you can easily recover the original files:

1. Select your GTAIV Directory / or a temp directory (for example an empty folder)
2. Select your DVD-ROM Drive
3. Choose a file you want to recover or use a scriptfile
4. Click 'Recover' and wait a few seconds/minutes (you will be asked to insert the disc 1 or 2 into your drive)
5. The file has been recovered and the game can be started (or modded) again

Hav a lot of fun wink.gif .


Requirements:
--------------
You need JAVA installed on your computer to use this tool. If you don't have it installed, the tool will automatically ask you to download it when program starts.


Hosting:
--------
You can upload this tool wherever you want. It's not exclusive to anyone!


Scriptfiles:
----------
You can create a GTA IV Recoverer Scriptfile to recover lots of files automatically. This is how it works:

1. Open your texteditor (notepad).
2. The first line always begins with a comment. This line will not be read by the recoverer! You can write down whatever you want. If you don't want to enter a comment, just leave the first line blank.
3. The second and next lines are very important: Write down all the files you want to recover. Each line can only be used for one file!
4. Save your file as "ANYNAME.ivr" The .ivr extension is used by the GTA IV Recoverer.
5. You can open the script by clicking the "Open scriptfile" Button in the GTA IV Recoverer

The Recoverer checks every line of your script and compares it to the filelist.

There is an example file included: patch7_rollback.ivr
You can open this file in a texteditor to check or modify it.

! IMPORTANT !:
- Don't use blank lines in your scriptfile
- You can use paths with a normal backslash for example: common\text\american.gxt
- Always use the filenames. Don't use directories!



Changes:
----------
1.0.0: - public release

1.1.0: - code cleanup
- patch information added
- added patched files support (when you want to recover a file that is updated by one of the patches (1-3), you get a message. You can recover the file but you should install the latest patch again to update the file.)

1.2.0: - search option added (it's an "OR"-Search, so you can enter "gta4 melee paul" -> searches for "gta4", "melee" or "paul"). To search again, just click the search button again without changing the textbox. Or just enter the filename you want to search.

1.3.0: - cleanup
- scriptfile support added (see: p4_rollback.ivr and section "scriptfiles" above)
- patchfile information updated

2.0.0: - Completly new code. Started from the beginning again.
- Faster algorithm with failure-detection
- Design optimized
- Windows 7 compatible
- Lots of internal code updates
- Scriptfiles must not have double-slashes anymore
- Update-function added
- No values are saved in the registry anymore. Now with ini file support
- Optimized recovering (the data3.cab will not be copied to the harddisk anymore)
- When an error occurs during recovering process, the last file will not be deleted anymore
- The search has been changed. It's now an "AND" search. All files that include the whole text will be found

Have fun.

Nice tools! smile.gif

Can you upload them at GTAGarage? Because I don't trust free filehosting websites like Rapidshare. wink.gif

The 1.0.0.7 Rollback recovers the original files, that have been patched. So your gta iv will be 1.0 again. Then you can reinstall any patch you want.
