Good day for everyone.
I'd like to introduce you to my pretty much insignificant work, as it may be not so relevant after 13 years since the game was released, but I think that some people still may find it interesting. Probably, I am not the only one who noticed that some animations in GTA SA are pretty much bugged, like driving and in-vehicle animations, when they are getting performed by some NPCs, like some facial animations, like some stance animations and like the others. In other words, some animations are performed incorrectly with some models: the breast might be twisted, the lower jaw either disappears or doesn't move properly, the eyebrows rise almost to the back of the head - these are the most common things that you can face. Especially these bugs are evident to DYOM players or those people, who play SAMP or MTA, or any other multiplayer client. The aim of my work is to find and to fix any bugs and incompatibility problems in animations.
This mod doesn't change the look of animations, but it makes some corrections that make the animation work properly with all models. What kind of bugs it fixes:
- In most cases, this mod fixes regular twisted breast bug, which can be seen on female models within some combat movements, sneaking, movement with heavy weapons, jetpack stance and driving.
- Fixes possible incorrect show-up or disappearance of lower jaw and eyebrows for facial animations.
- Fixes excessive upward rotation of the lower jaw while conversating (originally, the jaw was unnecessarily turned by about 9 degrees upper than it supposed to be), so characters now should open mouth properly while speaking
The list of fixed animations (last update - 08/12/2017 20:00 UTC+3):
Raw updates are some sort of unstable additions to last confirmed release (1.5) distributed as intermediate WIP-type (alpha) content before the next confirmed release. The content may be modified even within single raw update. In this case, only minor hotfixes are applied, without any new content included.
Previous raw updates are NOT REQUIRED for installation, so you can just download the last one and install it over the last confirmed release (1.5). Optional part of Raw Update #2 requires CLEO (any version).
