Just want to discuss for what reasons this topic was locked because it seems a little hypocritical given the fact the numbers GTA mods, hacks and scripts are hosted on this site.

For starters, please no trolling. No posts like "well that's gay"
or toward me like "ur a whiner"

Secondly, don't respond to that original topic. Don't post the backs-ups I was asking for.

So here are a few point I would like to make then I wont mention it again.


This sites hosts MANY mods. Some of which are from other games. Which would be original files that aren't from gta iv?

Dante - http://www.gtagarage...ow.php?id=17363
Enzio - http://www.gtagarage...een.php?s=38696
Snake - http://www.gtagarage...ow.php?id=17369
Animations from assassins creed - http://www.gtagarage...ow.php?id=18550

If anything, doing this is worse than posting original game files. I just need a back-up.

Best of all, things like this - http://www.gtaforums...opic=419908&hl=

They go through the trouble to stop us with live code protections but we go ahead and disable that.

So he did say that you guys aren't a file server. Yet many of these mods are hosted. And I wasn't asking you all to host the file. Just link the file to me from a 3rd party server. TV show stream sites get away with this with thousands of TV shows.

Sites like TV-Links.eu. They link people to so many TV shows to watch. They have a page before you go to the link saying they dont host it, and someone else uploaded it. Just like I was asking. Ur linking it, not hosting. And none of the staff would have been would have been the ones to upload it.

This is taken from the Modding rules

[4.5.2] Original GTA content - Converting these between games is allowed

So taking it from one gta game and putting it in another is okay but helping someone in need that needs a file isn't. Again, these things seem so close in nature I don't get why it is a problem.

finally, here is my steam games list.


I do own gta. I'm not trying to rip the game. I was just a dumbass and didn't back my files and now i can't play it. Not only that but all i need it the models for the phone. It's not much.

Anyways, thats all. I am just honestly confused. It doesn't make sense to me.

Happy New year.

This is probably going to get locked because this board is for debates about real world issues. This is not for debates about site policy, but my 2 cents on this is that you are asking for files from the regular install of the game. That is something that the site does not want itself to be liable for; that is transferring original game files.
