GTA4 - modding ability

Recommended Posts

KickyMcAssington
I'm actually pretty sure you can edit the visualSettings.dat with my launch-injector as well.

 

Anyway, for the post asking about handling edits, and talking of "subtle" crashes, it could be because i did not update the version (i am using an updated version) there is no ingame crashes.

 

i will release it in the first post and update links etc.

Thanks, the other loader doesn't seem to work for me so I'm eagerly waiting for your updated loader.

Unfortunately I don't have experience compiling the code into an exe so if you could do that again for those like myself I would be grateful.

 

 

And yup after some more testing the first version of the loader definitely crashes fairly consistently after a few minutes of gameplay with my subtle tweaks.

I can't wait for the update :-) thanks again!

Which one are you using? The one on the front page or the one on the 3rd page? If you are using the front page one how did you get it working on vista did you just open it and it worked?

Thank you, this new version does indeed fix my in game crash after modding one of the weapons. At least for the 20 minutes I tested.

Now the ultimate test, changing the handling :-)

I'll try the handling.dat first I guess.

Opium_addict do you know if we need to do anything with "filelist.pak"?

 

Oh and I'm running XP.

The Launcher is supposed to close itself on launch if its working properly.

Make sure you've got the updated file, Then run the launcher, it will open and sit there, after that launch the game from the rockstar games social club "Play" button.

The mod Launcher should close as the game starts up, If you've modded any files the game wouldn't start if the mod launcher wasn't working.

Unless the game just isn't launching for you at all.

Hope that helps.

Eureka! icon14.gif

 

Well done opium_addict, I was able to use hexedit to adjust filelist.pak after finding out editing handling.dat didn't seem to effect the game.

Making the same changes is both files though worked like a charm. I don't know if the changes in handling.dat were even needed, I'll do some more trouble shooting and report back later on that front.

 

Also I should mention you do need to use a hex editor to view filelist.pak, notepad will corrupt it apparently ;-)

 

So as test I changed the Nrg900 (easily spawned from the cheat menu on my phone) to be a wee bit more massive, cars were flying outta my way tounge.gif

 

Here's a short clip:

 

*Edit, After some more testing it seems either handling.dat doesnt matter or at least its overridden by filelist.pak.

I'm trying to make the desert eagle rapid fire.

The problem seems to be the animation, the gun will only fire so fast, but when I caught fire and was running around I was able to use the super-auto fire I had modded in, any idea's on a workaround?

 

I suppose might not be possible without changing the actual animation.

 

I'm really liking the handling edits that are pretty easy to do.. Its not hard to get a much more realistic level of traction instead of the slip and slide it used to be. Also the cars feel a bit better with some more mass.

Sorry for being so unspecific.I mean The game terminates when I press play.

I can boot to the first menu, but when i press play its game over.

I really wonder why Dysprosium's launcher is working for me , but

it crashes before u can even test something.

 

Is it any way confirmed that the hook is working on the retail( non-steam)

version?

 

EDIT:

YEAH!!! It's working now.I need to run "LaunchGTAIV.exe" not "GTAIV.exe"

I hope that wasnt some where in the instructions lol.

 

EDIT2: Thank you so much opium_addict !!!!!

I uploaded the v3 update which includes "filelist.pak" patcher, credits to aru (ofc, i mentioned it enough tounge.gif),

which allows you to modify all of your GTAIV files.

 

it also includes the crash fix from v3, this version is flawless.

 

thanks to the community and those who helped, i am now satisfied with my release tounge.gif

Thanx, this is so nice...

I suggest to modify the deagle or the cops will fire rockets at you.

I'm using an ATI videocard, and I have problems launching the game : you don't need to exit the game when editing xml files, just loading a savegame.

 

I have made a short video :

ps: I'm interested in making mods, I'm a c++/c# programer.

Just create a file called commandlines.txt in your game folder, then paste all the commands there, followed and separated by spaces

 

I'm starting to view files, and trying to change some data. I will be creating pages at www.gtamodding.com on whatever I found... Needing a trainer for coordinates

When I watched that video I was like holly sh*t while laughing my ass off. A pistol that can shoot rockets and still being able to run and aim with it like a pistol. Instant win. Don't get banned man. You are going in my respect list cool.gif
