A new Browsing window for IV's in-game internet!

Introducing the first (I believe only) New Windows Internet Browsing window texture! And it shall be famous sometime, with a little bit of work, it can be a lovely success!

Tools used: Spark IV, PrintScreen(Button), Paint, Paint.net

How long it took to create (the first version): About (1) day, maybe less. Still WIP, adding much much more!

-- Don't have a screenshot yet, Don't want to ruin the Quality and make it look bad! --


Q&A:

Q. Why windows IE? A. Because Windows is a compatible and "working" OS that has quite a bit more functions than that of a Mac OS, and has the ability to use Video cards and additional add-ons depending on the OS version, such as 98, OS X, etc.

Q. How did you REALLY create this, and why? A. I was bored some day, and I decided to use the "BROWSE" button on the SPARK IV toolbar. So I found the "textures" folder, peeked inside, and saw a file called "browser", I edited it, found the image names, So I used Printscreen/SysRq button to take pictures of my IE 7 browser, used paint.net to scale the buttons down to size, and exported them back to the browser file. Successfully, It worked! So then I uploaded a packed .rar with the new Browser.(I think wdd) File in it, ready to start changing the internet in IV to make it a bit more interesting while surfing the web. While getting girlfriends, to getting a 4 star child porn wanted level, I wanted it to look good, and maybe a bit more real!

***Note, this mod is still in WIP stage, but am working on HQ versions of buttons, don't worry, and keep checking this mod for future updates. Bookmark if you want.
Updates:

****UPDATES:****

update 1.3: Features New buttons for sides, address bar and more. May be last update. (Not sure though)

Update 1.2: Better HQ version buttons and top bar, Top bar now has minimize, restore/Maximize, and Close button added to the top bar layout.

Update 1.1: Updated and Higher resolution buttons, along with better quality.

--------------------
Bugs:

Top Bar minimize, restore/maximize, and close button do not do anything on the browser yet. If someone knows how to code buttons to do actions, (like back goes back, mail goes to mail, etc) Please PM me at gtaforums.

If you spot anymore bugs, please let me know. smile.gif

New Buttons and even more upgrading buttons COMING SOON! So don't forget to re-download this mod when the newest updates come out, in better quality, and better resoulution! biggrin.gif
Special Thanks to SLAYERMAGGOT for giving me some HQ pics to blend with the buttons, I needed those otherwise you bastards would've thought my mod was total crap and very low quality pics. sneaky2.gif lol.gif


Installation : Using an extractor such as 7-zip, winrar, winzip, etc. (THIS IS CRITICAL FOR INSTALLING!!!)
Extract the files to: C:\program files\Rockstar games\Grand theft Auto IV\pc\textures\
and replace the file Browser.wdd with the one provided!

Try it out and post here to tell me what you think of it so far!! biggrin.gif Thanks!
And Look, I know some of the uploaded pictures quality is crap, but that is just because it is stretched out due to gtagarage's screenshot/pic uploading system, It will look much sharper and much nicer in the game , not to be an arse, but don't whine about it just because of how crappy it looks.

Once again, thanks for viewing! cool.gif cookie.gif
Only mac luvers use Firefox. Atleast, thats what I know and have heard. moto_whistle.gif

Sounds cool, but you should really post screens. You'll get way more downloads, plus I just wanna see it!

So this is a texture replacement? For a moment there I was wondering if you've managed to render it inside the game.

Yeah, the title is a bit misleading.

No, because I did "replace" the browsers textures to make it look different. Not the websites, but the browsing window. If you still don't understand, search up "browser" in gta iv directory and open it up with spark's browse button and when you click edit you can edit and replace all textures such as close button, back button, top bar, etc. So I hope this first yet mod for browsing window will start some more internet mods out there as this might just be the "starter" or "example" wink.gif

@Futurama_Freak1: A, because I don't have firefox, B, Firefox sucks and you cannot add more buttons to the in-game browser... just like they left out the close window red button. (Will be posting pic(s) soon)

If you don't add pics within 24 hours after opening the topic, your topic gets locked. A mod with no pics is like a car without wheels dozingoff.gif

QFT. Not even Google Chrome can touch Firefox at the moment. Only bad thing about it is that some websites still don't bother to support it properly.

You should post some ingame screens. icon14.gif

And btw the pics you have posted of the textures are just HORRIBLE, no offence, but you should really get Resource Hacker open up the exe of Internet Explorer and use those HQ Textures, if you need help just PM me.

Firefox is for Mac-Lovers. Plus is used by mac and I'm a windows user and it just ends up turning your PC into a Mac just like san fierro turns all Women into Guys. gay guys. ph34r.gif

Ok, to the real point. In-game the textures look almost COMPLETELY fine, its just that the uploader on gtagarage made them all low res and stretched them, not that they look like that in-game, but they have been upgraded to HQ in latest update.

Just think, it could be worse. whatsthat.gif ph34r.gif
