Do you guys think you might be able to implement the ability to view and edit shader files?
Maybe one day in future (I hope) we will have a inbuilt tool to view RAGE Shaders (similar to Rage Shader Info ), but I not sure that editing is ever possible.

I hope editing will be possible. At least to some extent.

 

The shader modifications I'm interested in making:

-Optimized gtaemensivenight shader. The patch 4 one fixes bugs on 7 but screws up traffic lights. With the 7 shader the traffic lights are fine but the Rotterdam Tower lights and bar lights in Massonet 9 are screwed up.

-Add night shadows to cars. This aught to fix the no car shadows in the booth tunnel. I was driving down there and saw a garbage truck. The guys hanging on the back had shadows. This gave me the idea that might just fix it. Cars should also cast shadows when they go under street lights. The other thing I'm sure others have noticed is night shadows have the fuzzy looking edges like the old/console shadows had. Wonder if this can be changed.

 

Edit: Can someone post a link to the shader viewer tool? I can't find the link anywhere.

I'm trying to add files to the game root, installation validates but no files are written to the root folder. Permissions have been set correctly... Could someone point me in the right direction? This is my code:

 

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><package version="1.0"><metadata> <name>Install ELS</name> <author>Dude</author> <target>     <game>IV</game> </target> <description>ELS</description> <largeDescription displayName="Description">    <![CDATA[ELS, now easily installable via OpenIV package install!]]> </largeDescription> <licence>    <![CDATA[blablablabalb]]> </licence></metadata> <content gameID="IV" name="ELS" description="ELS">      <game:open path="" type="type">          <add source="content\ELS.asi">ELS.asi</add>         <add source="content\ELS.ini">ELS.ini</add>      </game:open> </content></package>

 

 

I have also tried setting the path to "\" but no succes... You can find the 'compiled' .oiv here.

You no need to "open" game. Just add files under content tag:

A couple months ago there was someone who asked about waterfalls. It was mentioned that they are part of animated UVW so I suppose that they also equivalent to the flashing billboards and advertisements in Star Junction. Is it just animated UVW on a regular WDR or is the format itself different? I am sorry if this was answered here before.

Yes, it's all animated UV's. I explained the waterfall technique to stilldre here.

Thank you Blaster. smile.gif

Hey Blaster, a problem here. I looked at that tutorial of yours and got everything. But there isn't animated texture.

 

To view animated texture, I just click on my wdr that has it applied I suppose.

 

But the problem is, where do I import my .oad?? Is it in my .img that contains my .wdr or is it in the .anim??

Export any WAD file and open the OAD with notepad and you'll see. The only thing this file does is loading one or multiple ANIM (ONIM) file(s).

Put the OAD in the img with your WDR. Don't forget to add it to the ANIM section in the IDE.

Okay, did that, than viewed .wdr and no animated lights.

 

The material is on sub-object 0 in 3ds max. So I used 0 in the file where you specified.

 

Then I copied the model's objs line in ide and placed it in anim section as well with the animation dictionary specified and the anim line going according to Rockstar dimensions.

 

Wonder why it does not work?

To see your animation, you must go to the animation viewer.

I am trying to get animated lights coming down like waterfall. (In fact, like the one GTARandom posted just below your post to Stilldre)

 

The model has a multi-subobject with only ONE material. So according to you, I must call it <nameofoad>_uv_0. So "0" since Max's first material is IV's "0"

 

I don't know is this wrong, but my .wdr appears twice in IDE. One in the objs section and one in the ANIM section...Wonder is that correct...

 

Another thing I was confused to is what is "UV0 Float3 0" or "UV1 Float3 0" that I keep seeing in exported .onim??

 

 

EDIT

 

The animated lights play properly in OpenIV Animation Viewer but does not work in game?? suicidal.gif

Correct.

Remove from OBJS.

Afaik, Float3 is for movement and Float4 for rotation. It's just how OpenIV team made ONIM format.

Yeah, that tends to happen...Try changing the first IDE flag to 1024 (so that's the flag after draw distance (wdr, wtd, wad, drawd, 1st flag, 2nd flag, bounds crap etc.))

Setting it to 1024 works now. Thanks Blaster. smile.gif

Most flags dont work with animations. In GIMS they are all unknown, so we don't know what is what. 1024 is copied from one of IV's UV animated objects, so that's a safe bet.

Does anoyone know how to check the full dds properties (mipmap level, 2d or cubemap or ... etc textures, dxt... etc), I already have nvidia plugin for photoshop about editing dds formats and there is no options about that?

 

Before editing I want to know the original properties, so after editing to safe it with the original properties?

 

Thanks in advance!

Once Upon a Time in Brazil – OpenIV 1.5

 

 

 

 

Here is a long awaited release of OpenIV. Today we bring texture modding to Max Payne 3. You can use the full power of our Texture Editor or take advantage of openFormats for textures. Also for Max Payne 3, you can use OPL text format for editing map WPL files. As for GTA IV, we have done big improvements in Animation Viewer and you finally can use it to view EfLC cut-scenes. Besides viewer, new version of openFormats for GTA IV Animations will bring more usability for animation editing. In addition, we have made many changes in many OpenIV parts, as always you can see more detailed list here on bug-tracker.

 

 

Run OpenIV for getting update or go to http://openiv.com/

 

Some of new features at video here:

 

- Improved cut-scene player

 

- Improved Animation Viewer

 

- Custom render background

 

- Improved Placement Search Edited by GooD-NTS

Hot-fix for OpenIV 1.5 (build 441)

- Add Ukrainian language

- Max Payne 3 audio fix

- Some minor bugs fix.

 

 

How much MB can weight mesh file?
Look at original models.

 

 

Can we edit MP3 textures that are embedded in models as well?
No, this feature can be possible only when we will have full researched models formats.

 

 

WHOA WAIT A MINUTE. How did you get the camera up there?
I have used a prototype of FreeCam ASI which Alexander made by my request.

Before you ask, I don't know when it will be available for public, currently it don't have a proper quality.

There's an unused model for the Curupira: user posted image

It has some unused audio too, and so does Captain Baseball Bat Boy that suggests they were supposed to be playable in multiplayer.

I am wondering about something as far as vehicle modding is concerned.

 

I have tried all the TBoGT vehicle light fixes, and they all have a messed up camera. The camera is too low. Taller vehicles block the view, I have to hold the analog stick so I can see over the top of the car. How can I modify the camera position for the cars? I want to have the lights working and have the camera be like with out the fix/console.

 

Edit: It seems that there is data in the vehicle wft models that hasn't been looked at.

Data for:

-Camera position/angle. (changes when vehicle light fix is installed.)

-Some vehicle physics. (Custom bikes don't have the wheelie/stopie limit. The Bati custom that came with the vehicle light fix is able to do wheelies and stopies when speeding down the highway. Normally there is a limit as to how far the bike can lean back, but the one with the light fix rolls right over. However, the one that came with the game can't flip over.

I did an article on these awhile ago when OpenIV was first updated with the model viewer.

He can be played as again if you edit some text files with OpenIV. Not replacing files, other people will see you as him and hear his taunts.

That was a really interesting read, nice job. There's a few things you forgot though.

• In the intro for Chapter 7, when Max is speaking to Victor and Marcelo over the phone, the phone is black in the final version, but in trailer 2, the phone is white. It can be seen here:

• Fabiana looked different, like on the cover art. And here:

• The U.F.E looked different.

• Max can be seen using Desert Eagles in a few screenshots, in levels they don't appear in.

I know Max's shirt and a few characters can be restored, but maybe more can.

 

How do you go about playing as them?

 

Where is the music from the interiors? Like the songs from the strip club, the NY bar, and the home Max goes into in the Favela. I can only find them in the cutscene audio, but some songs play while in game.

Maybe you need try to edit those files:

.\common\data\vehOff.csv

.\TBoGT\common\data\vehOff.csv

.\TLaD\common\data\vehoff.csv

Thats what I was thinking. But I read somewhere that those are not the way to fix it and that its something in the wft. The vehicle models are the same as original, just working lights, but the camera isn't in the right spot.

There are no dummies for the camera.

Only thing that's close to a camera dummy is the sphere and box found when you import a collision model from a San Andreas vehicle DFF.

The Captain Baseball Bat Boy audio was found by me when the game first came out, back when I had to manually import the audio and guess the frequency range, etc, so that audio has been around since day one and I actually made a few posts about it over on the News Wire which Rockstar chose to ignore.
