I hope you get to work on something similar.

I thought about such, but not sure if required effort would pay off in enough feedback, seeing how adding new vehicles to SA is already MUCH easier than VC w/out MVL.

Adding new vehicles to SA in its current state is still pretty bad tbh, especially since you can't add a new handling line, it's got to be one used by a current vehicle in the game.. MVL's layout is pretty amazing and its one of the only reasons why I'll even bother installing a car mod.. + it has a bunch of extra features like shadows.

The process of adding the car(s) to SA manually is quite annoying already,and I myself never got to get an added vehicle to work without resulting in a crash.

Having a possibility of adding vehicles through a tool/script much like MVL is one of the things I want the most for San Andreas,this is just me,I don't know what others think about this,but I think that this will be a helluva great tool and will make others lives easier in the process of adding a vehicle to the game.

I know that more vehicles can be added without too much complication like adding more than 3 into Vice, but can they support special things like MVL adds (More Cop Cars, Taxi's, Etc) It would be cool to be able to add more vehicle that can have the special towing ability, weather that is like the Baggage, Tractor, Towtruck, or even the RoadTrain and perhaps add some more different classes of vehicles.

Sure I doubt that the first release of an SA Version of MVL would have all that support straight up, but it has to start from somewhere.

+1 for that.

Such thing would allow adding all kinds of variants to current existing vehicles such as : beaters, high-performance specifications , facelifts , newer/older generations and more, But this is just a concept,that hopefully,will come true.

Enought MVL talk, let's talk about our lord and savior:
Captura%20de%20tela%20-%2010-01-2014%20-

THAT COULD BE A HORROR MOD! CHRIST!

@R4GN0R0K
Nope, SA::Render didn't work here, I couldn't install VC2013 Runtime, and when I downloaded the dlls somewhere in the internet they didn't work properly.

Looking at your log shows me you updated only the modloader core (modloader.asi) not the file handles (aka modloader plugins) at modloader/.data/plugins

After a few days of procrastination here we have a new update:

San Andreas Mod Loader v0.1.7
  • Feature: ASI plugins that rely on external files on run-time works fine now, except for a few exceptions.
  • Feature: The loader can handle D3D9 hooks
  • Feature: Sacky's Limit Adjuster removed from modloader
  • Feature: Implemented file mixer for water.dat
  • Feature: Implemented file overrider for roadblox.dat and tracks%d.dat
  • Feature: The basic IDE files (vehicles.ide, peds.ide, default.ide) do not need to be inside a data folder anymore to be detected
  • Bug fix: Fixed a immediate crash that happens when a .img files gets overridden
  • Bug fix: Fixed wheels line for veh_mods.ide not getting read properly on a readme file
  • Bug fix: Fixed the conflict between the clothing file COACH and the vehicle file COACH
  • Bug fix: Other minor fixes 
http://www.gtagarage...ow.php?id=25377
 
What exceptions are those in the ASI plugins? It's basically a few Ryosuke's plugins (because the way he open his files, relative to gta_sa.exe on DllMain so I can't even interfere with IAT hooks) and The Birds Update (because reasons)
 
To be more specific with Ryosuke's plugins: ragdoll.asi, normalmap.asi, outfit.asi, colormod.asi, dof.asi, bullet.asi, google.asi, airlimit.asi, killlog.asi, weaponlimit.asi

If modloader finds any known incompatible ASI mods it will show a error message box!
 
It may be obvious that you can use ENB Series with the D3D9 hooks feature but it was specially built to disintegrate Sacky's Limit Adjuster from modloader since it comes normally in a d3d9.dll ;)
 
To finish the post, Grandcarma works 100% on modloader, that's officially the first big TC to do so :p

I'm getting a large log file with this message "Warning: std-asi failed to CaptureStackBackTrace for kernel32.dll:CreateFileA! Trying singleton!" being repeated over and over again. The only Ryosuke plugins I'm using are shell.asi and mousefix.asi. I'm using a bunch of other plugins though, so it may be one of those. Perhaps 2dfx, VehicleAudioLoader, MobileHud or IMFX? Those plugins load external files. Then again, it's not like they are failing to work in-game or anything, and I'm not seeing any message boxes either.

 

Also, apparently it failed to replace the carcols.dat, shopping.dat and weapons.dat files. It says "Handler "std-data" failed to process file "carcols.dat"".

 

Other than that, it seems to be working fine. Loads faster than previous version too.

Heh, I wouldn't worry about loadtimes ;)

 

You can have a look in the modloader/.data/plugins/std-data.txt and see what data files are supported. (which your listed *.dat files aren't listed).

 

Not too sure on your issues though, maybe someone else can comment?

Oh, my bad. I should have looked at those files first.

 

Hopefully they'll be supported in a future version then :)

Latest version works great! Kinda sad to see a great mod like this doesn't get the recognition that it deserves.

Some screens and not a single file replaced on my game. All installed via modloader.

"Warning: std-asi failed to CaptureStackBackTrace for kernel32.dll:LoadLibraryA! Trying singleton!
Warning: std-asi failed to CaptureStackBackTrace for kernel32.dll:GetModuleFileNameA! Trying singleton!"
 
Can you tell me what this means? it appears in the modloader.log since I updated to latest version, and it crashes my game after I exit the game, not a problem but I would like to know.

You can safely ignore this warning, it has a safe code-path when this failure happens (as you see, "Trying singleton!").

About the game crashing on exit, well, that mayn't be a problem at first for you, but that's really a problem :p
I don't know what it is because doesn't happen to me, but there's more people that reported it and I'll (together with people that reported, like you :p) be working to find out what's going on.

No crashes for me on Win7 32bit, as Admin, DEP off.

 

Also it doesn't load slow anymore as earlier versions did for me.

I wouldn't worry about load speeds  :panic: All bad things must come to an end.

 

Works perfect so far with Win7 64bit Ultimate.

 

It has been mentioned to Link by several people that ENB/SweetFX and other d3d9-type mods, don't work for everyone. Myself included.

I have sent the .log to Link to analyze, and he is aware of the problem and its cause.

I found a bug when putting timecyc's into the modloader folder. When i download any timecyc, extract the folder to my desktop and copy and paste it into the modloader folder. It does not work when playing in SA-MP. But, when i play singleplayer it works perfectly. I don't quite understand why this is happening. It's gotta be something with the timecyc's or something. Because when i put the overdose effects folder in modloader it works fine on SA-MP and Singleplayer so it's nothing to do with the data folder. I don't know. :(
