[RELEASE] GTAIV Intro Patch

Recommended Posts

CoMPMStR

user posted image

 

Ever get tired of reading the same messages and looking at the same intros when you start GTAIV? Well, now you don't have to look at them any longer. With this Intro patch, you can zoom right passed the intros and get to what you really want. It's real easy to use, just click Patch and let the program do the rest. If you don't have the game installed in the default location, you will have to locate it manually. There's really nothing to it, give it a shot!

 

NEW in v1.1: I fixed the way it checks if the game has been patched. I also added a restore feature, if it's patched already, that allows you to remove the patch if needed.

 

NOTE: Please make sure your game is moddable, by using my Mod Assistant or similar, before applying this patch.

 

You will need the Microsoft .NET Framework v3.5 installed in order for this program to run correctly.

Well seeing as how you can't use modified files without backing them up to begin with in this game, I figure people will backup their files automatically. Then if you don't want something used anymore, just restore the backup. I've had people email me that they've used a tool of mine and the game don't work so it's nothing new. I just explain to them what happens and usually they catch on quick.

 

The only way it will say your game is patched already is if you've patched it already. I didn't want to make it where if you patched it, it will patch it again (that would be useless because it has to backup the original file and modify the files.txt). I'll probably add if it's already patched you can remove the intro patch as well, but not today.

 

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all have a good one. biggrin.gif

i do backup every file i modify but your patch ddidnt say what it will be replacing until u patch it. in other words - until it's too late.

 

can u please also upload the original files this patcher replaces so ppl (like me) can restore the original files?

i would like to restore everything and then try to patch again.

it doesnt make much sense that the patcher says it's already installed but the intros are still there, does it? smile.gif

 

 

thanks and marry Christmas (or Hanukkah, depends on where u're from).

Ok try the update. I fixed the way it checks if it's been patched so it may work the first time now. Also I added that restore feature you mentioned, if it's patched already. No need to say which file it is because the patch now writes the original automatically as the backup and on restore. Let me know if it works now.

You're right, it's just that it was Christmas and I was really busy. I just wanted to make sure everyone at least had the update before I went to my Christmas party. I planned on updating the main post with the program updates but I forgot all about it. suicidal.gif Thanks for the heads up. colgate.gif

Well this works, it certainly removes the intro, but it seems to only replace the intro with a blank screen, which lasts just as long as the intro screens otherwise would have.

 

I am running a legit version of the game and signing into windows live, so maybe the duration of that has something to do with the duration of the intro, but there is definitely no speed increase of getting to the main menu.

 

Essentially the intro usually takes as long as the intro music plays and the menu appears at the end of the music intro, now there's simply a blank screen in place of intro screens, which still takes just as long as the music does to play before it reaches the main menu.

 

Personally i'd prefer something to look at.

If you want to restore everything just click the Patch button again. It should restore all the modified files back to their original state.

I am working on a fix for that now, it won't take long to put it out.

 

EDIT: I think the problem may be that you haven't enabled modding for your game. Did you patch filelist.pak and modify files.txt? If your answer is no, then you should use my Mod Assistant http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=390224 to enable modding.

I think this problem is due to the game loading the necessary resources to show the main menu. If you happen to look on the front of your computer case (or wherever your harddrive with GTAIV installed is located), you should notice the activity light flickering indicating harddrive activity (read and write actions). This means that the game is loading all necessary resources, which can vary depending on computer specs (not to mention processes loaded and other factors). This happens to me every so often, but the blank screens don't stay up nearly as long as the intros do normally. I'm also running XP.

This tool worked perfectly on 1030/1040/1004 - I doubt it will have problems with 1070. Works like a charm for me. Thank God, waiting for the Rockstar credits and load was painful.
