Hello ! I am new to the forums. I bought the retail version of GTA IV. After completing the story I have decided to start modding it and I am new to modding. I have installed the Simple Trainer 6.3 without any problems. I have used YAASIL's and Alexander Blade's ASI loader before and Aru's Scripthook.dll for the trainer. Now I want to mod some cars. I downloaded SparkIV 0.6.9. I extracted it into folder on my desktop. SparkIV opens up without any problems. But when I try to open something (Ex. weapon.img in Grand Theft Auto IV/pc/models/cdimages) I get an error :

user posted image

 

After I click OK, I get this box :

user posted image

 

In the Details button it shows this :

 

See the end of this message for details on invoking

just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************

To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this

jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.

The application must also be compiled with debugging

enabled.

 

For example:

 

<configuration>

<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />

</configuration>

 

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception

will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer

rather than be handled by this dialog box.

 

 

I have GTA IV v1.0.70, using SparkIV 0.6.9, using dsound.dll and scripthook.dll and Simple Trainer 6.3.

I have reinstalled GTA IV several times but didn't help. Even with a fresh install I tried running it but it didn't help either. Installed various .NET Frameworks as well. Checked for registry issues as well.

 

System Specs :

Intel Core 2 Duo E7200

Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit

3 GB RAM

Nvidia 9600GT

 

NOTE : Same error comes for EFLC 1.1.0.2

 

Help and suggestions are very much appreciated. Thank You.

You should open-source this. Fantastic tool, but it misses a lot of neat stuff (Like exporting all sounds in a bank, searching, etc.)

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

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

I preffer using SparkIV too, I dunno why, i just like it better. It feels more compact and OpenIV is like too big and it has a nice glossy look, yes, but its inpractible for me, SparkIV does what i want to do to my files better and quicker. Its lightweight tounge.gif

Spark IV crashes so much, even if it still is usable. When I look at sound files, if I want to hear something else or I close the window Spark IV has a chance of crashing. It's so annoying.

I've been using the 0.7.0 beta that works with EFLC and one thing that amazes me is how through the ENTIRE release cycle a very annoying bug hasn't been fixed. That bug is the fact that it only remembers one folder location instead of two: one for the imported stuff and one for the opened img file. Also annoying but less priority is having to press the stupid logo so that it can index the entire freakin GTA folder and then finally let you click the Open File icon. AGH!

I can't open Audio files with Open IV, but I can with Spark. However, Open IV has drag and drop (doesn't work for me, though), and allows me to add more files to an RPF and an IMG. (VERY IMPORTANT FEATURE).

So thats why it doesn't work? Wow, and I thought it was an issue on my end, even because the icon appeared.

 

But why the f*ck would he remove drag and drop? How retarded. confused.gif Unless it interfered with a feature the tool had then I understand.

It can be added back to the program, I managed to get into contact with Aru a while back, and got more for his editor, which was still in Beta "Testing" or had not be released yet.

 

 

I will speak to Aru when I can, and I will start updating SparkIV smile.gif

Why the big argument over the two? I alternate between both OpenIV and SparkIV and I think both programs are great. Is there a real need to bash the other? I have a feeling some of you guys who bash OpenIV never actually used it

Of course OpenIV, because OpenIV has openFormats support and has support of Max Payne 3.
