[REL|SA] Map Cleaner

On/Offtopic: I've been tring to figure out the odd boat paths and randomly placed water creature life.

 

I dunno how many people have tried (or have been bored enough) but when you go back to St Marks (Liberty City), jump the wall and fall through where the col files end you sometimes land in water that isn't there.

 

I swam around for a while and boats, oysters and fish are randomly scattered once you swim past the 6000 mark (the end of the map).

 

hardcoded stuff?

Ummmm, ok, I i used your tool steve to remove the sh*t, and it did the looping sh*t. SO I copied an IPL and iDE put my sh*t in there deleted the uneeded stuff, added my things to the img, added the lines to the GTA.dat, but it still don't work. WTF? im getting sick of wasting hours of time and getting the same sh*t over and over. mad.gif

I ran the map cleaner on a fresh install, and the game crashes when i try to start a new game. Did i miss somthing or is it just that it doesnt work on all games? Must i be using an unmodified exe?

Although it works for some people, I'm not able to run a stripped version of SanAn without the loading routine entering that infinite loop of doom. However, as soon as I add custom objects (like a part of Myriad) it does work. Strange.

I figured out why I was crashing out... it was a small, but important "oversight" by me. I've got it workin out the loop too. Thanx steve. Edited by TRN4L

99.9% chance that you are doing something wrong, other than the way you've regarded your respect on the boards hehe.

 

I'd bet you have an important integer in your IPL wrong or missing, or you've made a typographical error in your gta.dat. Check it out, good luck.

Did you modify the game in any way? Are any of your game files read-only? Do you have full read/write access to your SA directory? Are any of the files opened by another program (e.g. IMG Tool, MooMapper/MEd)? What game version do you have?

Hi Steve, im having some trouble with your map cleaner, i clean the game patch the scm and water and i get the infinite loop of doom so then i do as sujested and add a custom object to the game (1 object) i know it's all correct as it works normally without the map been cleaned.

 

How many objects need to be added in order for the game to start?

Oh ok thanks for the info, im just curious if this method works/ frees up the model places.

 

I deleted all of the placemnt information in the Lae2.ipl, does this free up the model slots it was using? When i deleted the ide information for Lae2 the game froze during loading.

No it won't, since you still define the objects (and use slots), you just don't instantiate them. And you can't just delete one ide since there are many dependencies between the map files, and you also have to delete unneeded cols and bin ipls from the img.

@The-end: If you copy default.ide, peds.ide and vehicles.ide over to your Mission Builder directory, it will replace the #... placeholders with the real IDs.

 

@Blaster_nl: Yes, it cleans gta3.img, deletes gta_int.img and removes unused file references from the gta.dat. The readme explains what the cleaner does step-by-step. No idea why it works when you add bistro.txd, since you definitely don't need it as other tests have shown. Maybe you can just add any file and it will work?

DexX posted a test map that you can use with a cleaned game to prevent it from crashing. Make sure to read the install notes.

 

As for program bugs/crashes, I'll address those once I have time.

It now says the error 'Invalid pointer operation' and i read the rest of the thread and i think its because i accidently set my MAIN.SCM + IDE files to always open with notepad, but i dont know how to undo this. bored.gif

I've been working on an update recently. Most of the cleaning engine has been rewritten, so I hope those crashes are gone now. I'm not quite done yet, but here's a first test version you can play with before the official release. Please let me know how it works, especially people who had problems with version 0.4!

  • online update check
