Hey guys,



Today im going to show you how to restore the "lost" skateboard as a weapon into GTA: San Andreas.


Tools Needed:


IMG Tool 2.0


The tutorial :



Step 1:


Open up IMG Tool. Press "Ctrl+L" and navigate to the Grand Theft Auto / GTA San Andreas / Models folder. Select "GTA3.IMG". Press open.


Step 2:


Search "Spade.txd" and "spade.dff". Extract these to a location of your choice. I Keep a folder called "backups".


Step 3:


Search "Skateboard.txd" and "Skateboard.dff". Extract to a folder of your liking.


Step 4:


Find "Spade.dff" and "Spade.txd" Again. Delete both


Step 5:


Go to the location where you extracted "skateboard.txd" and "Skateboard.dff".


Step 6:


Rename the "skateboard.txd" and "skateboard.dff" to "spade.txd" and "spade.dff"


Step 7:


Add the new "spade.txd" and "spade.dff" files to GTA3.IMG. (CTRL+A > Find the files > Add each one seperatly)


Step 8:


Rebuild the archive.


You are done! Quite easy, Ill get a pic later, However you can see it in topic banner tounge.gif

It is a weapon, hence why it replaces a weapon "Shovel", It also looks good when you replace the "Katana", but I doubt you can chop a head of with a skate board tounge.gif
