So after reading this with all these problems I have read on the pages of this thread...

 

So do I install #2 patch with using MagicIV

 

or

 

Install patch #3 and do nothing and just start modding...

 

 

Honestly i just want to mod my files without renaming any, i just want it easy. As in, when I mod a file, i just want to replace it and it works.

I don't know if someone mentioned this already, but what I ve noticed is that with the modified filelist.pak Niko can't climb ladders. Anyone else had the same problem? Any solutions (I have the 1.0.2.0 version of the game)? sarcasm.gif

Thanks for the fast reply. Ive updated first to 1.0.3.0 and some mods wouldn't work like the real area names mod. When I updated to 1.0.4.0 many mods wouldn't work because I couldn't find an alice script loader for that version.

May you can try XLiveLess or YAASIL for .asi scripts? icon14.gif

 

EDIT: I forgot to mention that you doesn't need to patch your game with the File Modding Ability Patch since 1.04.

Just the GTA IV Folder should not be read-only.

I tried to update to v. 1.0.3.0 and v. 1.0.4.0 and also tried all the tools that you mentioned like xliveless. No matter what I use; xliveless, filecheckfix or magic patch, when original filelist.pak is disabled or changed Niko can't climb ladders. Only when I remove filecheckfix.asi and have the original filelist.pak it is possible to climb them. (but then some other mods like additional vehicles don't load).

I'm using patch 3 with mods and it works fine--only one mod so far won't work and that is first person driving.

OMFG Thank you so much, I now have motion blur at any speed in a car. No longer need I be speeding through the city to have it on, I can be checking out the details cruising through slowly with motion blur on. Awesome.

hi please can you tell me which file and what you did to that file to make the motion blur happen sooner i want to do it!

 

Thanks

Still can't get this to work, and even when I give up and restore my filelist.pak, the game just doesn't start up.

I'm following the instructions directly. I've tried this around 3 times, every time I've tried I've ended up needing to reinstall the game.

hey did you now that you can just repair gta 4

ok erm this may be a noob question, but is this like xliveless or do you have to "patch" the game before using xliveless?

does anyone know how i can check my version of gta iv.

If you have Vista, you can see what version of the game you have by hovering your mouse pointer over the GTAIV.exe file where you installed the game or by clicking on Games on the Start menu and clicking on (or hovering over) the GTA IV shortcut.

 

If you don't have Vista, try right-clicking on the exe and choosing Properties. The product version (i.e. game version) should be listed on one of the tabs, if I recall correctly.
