[REL|ALPHA] SA Limit Adjuster

Recommended Posts

SA Limit Adjuster Alpha 8

 

Well I've been working on this for a while, so I guess it had to eventually come out, here I have made a Limit Adjuster that reads off an INI and patches the bytes in process, rather than modify the executable itself. Please note that it is still in alpha stage and so is far from perfect, and is my first ever tool for helping to mod GTA.

 

- Installation: Put the d3d9.dll, salimits.ini, saloader.ini and saweapons.txt in the directory of your gta_sa.exe

- To Report Problems with SA Limit Adjuster: Include in your post what happens when it crashes, and the contents of errordump.txt

- To Request a Limit be hacked with SA Limit Adjuster: Include in your post the contents of errordump.txt, the name of the limit, and how you hit this limit (a file possibly would help so I can debug it)

- Compatibility: It was designed for US Version 1 Executables, but I have been working with some Europeans with it, and have made it detect between version and patch accordingly, so it *should work on EU Version 1 Executables

- Last Updated: 30/9/2007 12.35am

- Download:

Release

Have fun smile.gif and post your findings with what works, what doesn't etc

Sorry to tell you, but the download link does not work tounge.gif

 

Other than that, i'll try it out for sure! Is it available to change the game's virtual memory to a higher number?

Download link is now fixed.

 

But about the games virtual memory, do you mean streaming memory? If so there is a stream.ini in your GTA Directory, should do that anyway.

Well, i've got it working allready, and i talked about the streaming memory yep..

 

But... if i change the stream.ini file, located in my san dir, then it does nothing :S

Well if thats the case I'll have a look out for the streaming memory values, and the beta version of this may come with a streaming memory editor

Hi. i have this problem when i load the saved game:

 

GTA:SA Crashed, Debug Info Follows:Version: US 1.0Assembly Info:Exception At Address: 0x005D136AException Code: 0xc0000005 (EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION)Registers:EAX: 0x00000020	EBX: 0x00000020ECX: 0x00000008	EDX: 0x069D0278ESI: 0x069D4D87	EDI: 0x02CCFFFCEBP: 0x00000005	ESP: 0x0022FB40

FANGTA: I have that problem to, i'm sorry i never thought to try and load a game, i almost always just start a new game when im testing, anyway it seems its crashing like this:

rep movsd

And when i nop that something really weird happens: http://img261.imageshack.us/my.php?image=loadfailedqo6.png

Anyway thanks for reporting this issue, I will do my best to deal with it. In the mean time if its bothering you you could try and comment out some limits from the ini, a sort of trial and error to see what crashes and what doesnt.

 

SmokingCookie: Try it, the worst that will happen is that it will crash, then we'll sort EU 1.01 compatibility out in PM

Sounds like a bug with the Pickup reallocator, try commenting the pickups out of the INI file.

 

And the IDE bug will be worked out for the next release, but also note that the Vehicle Models limit refers to the amount of IDE entries you can have in vehicles.ide

Well I'm trying to add some things to the next release, compatibility with EU v1.0.1 executables, a customisable weapon ID table, as well as fix various bugs, but I'll try and get something out tommorow even if those features aren't complete

It's a feature made for faster loading of the game... Since it's been made for modders out there [mappers, coders and such], it can be really useful when they have to restart their game after every 10 seconds...

Update Alpha 2:

 

- Fixed IDE Allocation Errors

- Fixed Water Plane Allocation Errors

- Added an Enable Ads option in the ini file

- Added some explanations to the limits

 

Sorry I couldn't get Streaming Memory or Customisable weaponid's out in this instance, maybe next time, same download link as before.

On a side note, the Peds and PedIntelligence pools must have same size. Each Ped has its own PedIntelligence (which, from my point of view, is a structure storing common information about current state of the ped, what is gathered round him (closest vehicles and other peds), animations info, etc).

 

[Cped + 047C] is a pointer to the corresponding PedIntelligence. (Memory Addresses topic contains this one, I think, but it wasn't named).

 

So, if I increase the Ped pool, but don't do the same with PedIntelligence one, the game will store such info somewhere out of bounds, what may cause a crash or incorrect working. You may either remove a possibility to change PedIntelligence pool's size (always set it equals to the Ped' size), or add some warnings to a readme.

Well I'm going to assume that veh_mods works the same way as an IDE line, so if you just pop some more objects in there it should be fine (watch out for the ID Conflicts though). If not just post the crash data and I'll see what I can do.

An option to increase the map size would be awesome =D

If you even could make the in-game map bigger that would be super awesome tounge.gif
