[REL|BIN/SRC|Beta] SparkIV

Recommended Posts

MrSnaztastic

GTA IVAud has stopped development, so is there any chance that the ability to import .IVAUD files will come to SparkIV?

I've only ever seen the option to export.

Need a help guys.

 

I'm currently trying to find the computer generated BING BONG sound from the GPS and not the Bing Bong.wav that can be found on the DEFAULT under gps.rpf.

 

So far I only managed to find GPS_BONG from the RESIDENT.rpf but have no luck finding the GPS_BING.

 

Anyone managed to find it? I would like to use it for customizing my GPS voice.

You'd need to change a sh*tload of other things for that in order for the game not to go haywire. There's a tutorial on that somehwere on this forum.

 

 

SparkIV crashes whenever I want to import textures into a wtd file. What could be the cause of this? sad.gif

Whenever I replace a car using SparkIV (tried multiple versions), the game crashes on boot, or I can get into the game but all other cars, people, random things like mobile phone have disappeared. It used to work fine, then one day it just started with the problems.

 

Any Ideas?? My GTAIV is the steam copy if that makes a difference.

 

Thanks

First of all, Spark IV is an awesome tool.

 

Now, I've read in the changelog that Spark IV can be used to edit texture mapping for models. How can I do that?

No you can only edit the textures. I think you're a bit confused with the "added texture mapping support" but that's just to show the 3D models with textures.

Hey guys i got a problem...

 

right after I start SparkIV it crashes... I used it about 30min ago, and it worked fine all the time. But now nothing works. I downloaded the newest version, but get the same problem.

 

This is the error:

 

 

  Problem Event Name:   CLR20r3 Problem Signature 01: sparkiv.exe Problem Signature 02: 0.6.9.0 Problem Signature 03: 4cbb7c5e Problem Signature 04: mscorlib Problem Signature 05: 2.0.0.0 Problem Signature 06: 4bebd50b Problem Signature 07: 344b Problem Signature 08: 119 Problem Signature 09: System.IO.DirectoryNotFound OS Version:   6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1 Locale ID:    1031

 

 

Like I sad it worked 30min ago.

I allready tried different versions, admin rights and compatible mode... nothing.

 

I hope someone can help... GTAIV is sh*t without being able to add mods cars sounds and textures biggrin.gif

 

 

Thank you in advance.

 

 

 

SOLVED! "Thanks to aru: @mcal9909.. did you delete/reinstall GTAIV recently? It looks like its trying to find some directory and failing. I'd think its trying to find your GTAIV directory from your registry and failing. Try putting a gtaiv.exe in the same directory as SparkIV."/

Do you think we'll ever be able to edit clothing? Like being able to put different hats on peds that aren't already in their list of clothing. It would be really useful for people who make machinima.

In case it hasnt been said already. If it has been said, just ignore me.

 

Using 6.5 to access steam versions.

1. I get asked for the GTA directory every time I start Spark.

2. I cant open the .whm that come with EFLC.

 

We def need a twin path option now, for both GTA dir and EFLC dir.

OR.. simply copy the exe (GTAIV.exe or EFLC.exe depending on te version) in the same directory as spark.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh !!! after uninstall/reinstall both framework and Spark, try lots of spark versions .... this tips launch my Spark again !!!!

 

Thanks a lot for this tips !!! inlove.gifinlove.gifinlove.gif

OK on thing that really annoys me is that I can't add any files through SparkIV because I would like to add files to a custom IMG file that was made for addon cars that are able to be opened through the Simple native trainer mod , and for some reason I can't make OpenIV work which has the function to add files. please do me this favour and let include adding files.

i want to mod the cars on gta eflc using spark IV 0.7.0.

so, if i don't have gta 4 installed i can't mod the gta 4 cars??

it seems right now that i can only mod the cars from gta eflc. whenever i try to open spark IV for gta 4 is shows me an error.

how can i mod the cars without installing gta 4?

thank you

hellow,

 

now i know how to mod the card.

i was scrolling all the way dont on spark IV and that's why i was only able to modify the cars from TLAD. then i scrolled up and found the vehicles from gta 4 and TBoGT.

but i have another question.

would i be able to raplce one car with another coplete different car?

lest say i have a habanero (the one that looks like a lexus SUV 2009) can i mod it to be a mazda 3 2010?

to me, it looks more to a mazda 3 than a lexus like they say on GTA WIKIA.

so would be there any problem if i do that? they both look similar.

thank you

SparkIV

 

Couldn't live without it! Having a problem. I'll describe my method below. Keep in mind, the same result is achieved by importing a car as well.

 

---

Fresh install of 1.0.0.4 > Use SparkIV (Disk 2 - e:\GTAIV Files>SparkIV>SparkIV.exe) > Open manhat09.img file (Default location - Program files) > Import Textures from E:\GTAIV Files\Buildings and Interior Mods>VivaNewYork\ > Rebuild > Save.

---

*Navigating to IMG files in Program Files I used a shortcut on the desktop to Rockstar folder in Program Files

*When Importing while in SparkIV, I use a shortcut on the desktop to second hard drive for GTAIV files (mods)

 

So, step by step would be: Import > Click Desktop Button > Double-Click GTAIV files Shortcut > Proceed to Import Files from GTAIV files location.---

---

Could there be something wrong with using shortcuts? Perhaps some sort of pathing issue? Too long path? File Name? Sounds odd, but need to ask.

 

The issue resulting from trying to import (I am running 1.0.0.4 now, but the same stuttering was evident while on 1.0.7.0 as well) is that the game stutters and locks for a random amount of time. Usually lasting anywhere from 7 seconds to 30 seconds. If you haven't been able to joust the game by pressing Spacebar, Enter, Left-Click + Random Buttons, the display driver usually crashes or the game crashes altogether.

 

This only came about after I attempted to use SparkIV to import. I restored from backup my manhat09 file, worked like a charm again, but then on import of Dodge Challenger > Game stutters and crashes.

 

Recommendations and information would be VERY MUCH appreciated! I can't live without this tool! smile.gif

 

---

EDIT

 

I guess what I am asking for is:

 

1) Does anyone else have corruption issues with SparkIV?

2) Is there some sort of "Unencrypted" IMG files for GTA IV floating around the internet?

3) Is there an alternative program to SparkIV if there are no clear understandings of why this happens "sometimes" with SparkIV?

4) What do the majority of modders use all the time on 1.0.0.4 or 1.0.4.0 to mod in cars etc? Are they/you having unexplained stuttering / crashing problems?

5) Do you have import 1 file at a time? OR is it safe to import many files at one time and rebuild at once?

6) Does anyone see anything wrong with using shortcuts while opening/importing (while in SparkIV)? Could that be the source of the stuttering problems?

7) Can anyone see anything wrong with something I am doing when opening/importing? The issue only surfaces after using SparkIV to mod something in. Which, makes me wonder if I am doing something wrong.

Here is OpenIV, is not SparkIV alternative, is better than SparkIV.

(But I think it like author of OpenIV biggrin.gif )

Thanks GooD-NTS

 

Unfortunately, I tried OpenIV with the same result. Un-touched GTA IV (No Mods Except Trainer) = No Problems. OpenIV or SparkIV adding any car, texture or model = Stuttering or Crash.

 

Not really sure what to think of the problem. It's random and odd.

Hey guys, so I went to start up Spark Iv not even a second after i clicked on it I got an error saying Spark IV has stopped working. I have tried redownloading it and the older versions and they all say the same thing. Someone please help me out and what version Im running can't be the problem because it doesn't make sense because It was working fine this morning but then I had to reinstall my game to make a long story short and then it just doesn't work anymore. I have downloaded like 8 different versions and they all say the same thing when I start Spark IV.
