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.

So SparkIV is refusing to work because it thinks that GTA4.exe is in a place where it isn't and I can't see a way to redirect the program to the correct directory. Any way around this? Steam version.

You changed the C# code for the Buttons, or the version you downloaded is sh*t, just delete it then re-install it. You should Google the errors, and it will show what it is, and sometimes it means it corrupt when downloading, or the compiled version was not compiler, just run through Debugging mode.

I've read though most of this and my question wasn't answered.

 

SparkIV has always worked great for me until I installed a second copy of GTAIV on another hard drive. After that everything got messed up because of common files, etc. Well i got my original C: game working again properly, except SparksIV now doesn't even open anymore. I get this error message when opening.

 

EventType : clr20r3 P1 : sparkiv.exe P2 : 0.6.6.0 P3 : 4bffa9cb

P4 : mscorlib P5 : 2.0.0.0 P6 : 5040540e P7 : 3451 P8 : 119

P9 : system.io.directorynotfound

I currently have game patch 1.0.4.0 and have tried every SparkIV version. My problem is not the version since version 0.6.2.1 has worked for me for years. After trying Spark version 0.7.0 Beta the answer became more clear to me. Spark actually opens up in version 7 beta now, but when I click on the IV icon top left another error appears "Could not find a part of path F:\Program Files\Grand Theft Auto IV\gtaiv.exe."

If I go to the open folder icon middle top left I can use Sparks just fine accessing everything completely manually. This is clear to me the path or directory has been changed and is always now looking for the files on the F drive where I installed the new version of GTAIV which no longer exists due to many complications. How do I switch paths or directories back to looking on my C drive in Sparks. Yes I am running Sparks on the C drive and nothing has changed in the way I am doing things from the last several years. All this started instantly after installing a new copy of GTAIV on the F drive.

 

Putting these two errors together and my guess is after installing the second copy of GTAIV on another drive, my F drive, the source changed to this new installed copy instead of my good working copy on C:\. I have deleted the F drive copy and am currently only using my good and stable C drive copy. So how do I change the source back to recognize my C:\? Thanks for the help.

It could be great if Spark IV can add new files to img , currently it can only replace file .

Anyway , This tool is great , No need to install - that's why I use this but don't use OpenIv inlove.gif

So is this project dead now? The last beta was in 2011...should I just stick with OpenIV?

Yes I think you should stick with OpenIV. I don't think this project will get an update any time soon.

I have been using Spark with no issues, today, all of a sudden there is a vehicles.images.temp folder in there. I can't figure out how to delete it, or do anything with it. How do i get rid of that folder so that the in game trainer will work again??
