XLiveLess - small replacement of the xlive.dll with no online support

 

Last Update: version 0.999-beta7 (29/May/2010)

 

Note:

* run LaunchGTAIV.exe instead GTAIV.exe (to prevent "drunk" camera)

 

Main features:

* complete replacement of the xlive.dll (original dll isn't required)

* all online functions are disabled (to prevent cheating in multiplayer)

* removed all anti-debugger checks

* all game variables are made unprotected and can be accessed and changed by the trainers, control centers and other tools

* in-built asi-loader (no need to replace original files)

* asi-loader searches for .asi files in the root game folder and .asi and .dll in the 'plugins' folder

 

Additional features for GTA IV version 1.0.1.0-1.0.7.0, 1.0.4.2, EfCL 1.1.1.0-1.1.2.0:

* removed savefile check (you can load save file made by any offline XLive user)

* removed files.txt check (integrated replacement of FileCheckFix and MagicPatch)

* restored access to the system debugger in the critical error menu (removed loading of WER.dll)

* enabled write access to memory in code and .rdata segments (no need to call VirtualProtect from a .asi)

* disabled RGSC (since update 6, RGSC moved to the paul.dll)

* moved 'savegames' folder (see below).

 

Additional features for EfLC 1.1.1.0

* moved 'savegames' folder (see below).

* removed savefile check

 

Additional features for Red Faction: Guerrilla:

* removed savefile check

 

Installation:

* unpack the file xlive.dll into the game folder (don't forget to remove the asi loader if there is one)

* to turn on debug logging, unpack the file xlive_d.dll into the game folder and rename it to xlive.dll

 

Additional notes on savefiles:

* savefiles are now located in the folder:

(for Windows Vista) %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\savegames\

(for Windows XP) %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\savegames\

NOTE: don't forget to copy savegames to the new location

 

Plugin support:

* Added plugin API (xliveless.h and xlive.lib)

* Added sample plugin that moves the 'savegames' folder into the game folder (saveToGameFolder.dll)

 

Download:

* http://public.sannybuilder.com/GTA4/xliveless-0.999b7.rar

* http://rapidshare.com/files/392993489/xliveless-0.999b7.rar

 

 

UPD:

* version 0.91: added loading *.dll from plugins\ folder

* version 0.92: fixed bug with crashes on XP; fixed loading modules from plugins folder.

* version 0.93: disabled RGSC, moved the savegames folder

* version 0.94: added 1.0.2 support, fixed "Live Guide" bug, minor plugin API additions

* version 0.95: added 1.0.3 support, small fixes

* version 0.97: added 1.0.4 support; possible fixed crash on exit

* version 0.98: added Red Faction: Guerrilla support, minor bugfixes

* version 0.99: added update 5 (1.0.0.4) support

* version 0.999b4: added update 6 (1.0.6.0, 1.0.4.2) support , added preliminary EfLC (1.1.1.0) support

* version 0.999b7: added update 7 (1.0.7.0) and EfLC (1.1.2.0) support

 

Special thanks to Rick and Seemann.

Loading screens, poof before it gets to the main screen. Here's my debug trace if it helps.

Removed all of my asi loaders, etc. Restored files with Magic Patch restorer thingy.

 

Removing xlive.dll makes things work again, but I guess that's the point. wink.gif

So with this dll, summarizing, we can:

- mod the game

- use savegames

- can't play multy

- load asi files

 

So we could remove:

- magiciv by aru

- alexander asi loader and filecheckfix

- xlive.dll by ricky

 

Am I right? o_o

yes FunGT you are correct. That is pretty much what I did. This XLiveLess is working 100% on my pc. Making modding GTA IV less of a hassle.

 

Only problem is you need to make sure to BACKUP anything you mod. MagicIV made that easy, but I just copied the whole GTA directory as a backup.

@mabako: Using XP? Because that looks an awful like like my error.

 

Anyone who gets crashes, please post your OS (32 or 64), any service packs and .NET version, so listener can more readily isolate the problem. smile.gif

German XP 32bit SP3, .NET framework 3.5

 

what is weird imo is that the last two lines

 

 xlive_1083: XGetOverlappedResultxlive_3: XCreateSocket (2, 2, 254)

 

do not always appear, so it might crash before that or after? It's the same error though

Crashing at launch with unpatched version... English WinXP 32-bit, SP3 and .net 3.5 are installed.

It crashes to desktop saying that data cannot be written and the program will now close etc...

Normally I don't have any bugs or crashes in the game.

 

 

My specs:

E6750 2,66ghz @ 3,5ghz

2g 800mhz RAM @ 1066mhz

I have a question. Will this get rid of the 25ms limitation?

In meaning, you can only join servers if you have less than 25ms. I don't know if this is caused by LIVE or not though.

With the xlive.dll you can no longer use the cheathappens trainer... which wouldn't be a big deal, but their trainer has the goods for real, unlimited health, ammo, money and now removes wanted level.

 

Need a new lua script to do all that for us!!!! anybody voluntering? sp

Good tool, it's very useful.

 

However I can't seem to get plugins working correctly, I've got this code:

 

http://pastebin.com/m464291a8

 

In nointro.dll which I then put in the /plugins folder, but I get no message box. Here's my log:

Seems LoadLibrary isn't doing what it's supposed to? MS suggests that you don't call it in DllMain, but I've called it there successfully before.

 

EDIT:

 

It's because when your calling LoadLibrary your only passing the name of the file, not the relative path. It works fine as long as I rename it to a .asi and put it in the main directory.

Thanks, Sacky.

Plugins folder should now work as designed.

 

Also, fixed crashes in XP.

@listener: This tool deserves a pin... smile.gif IMO, there could be a ReadMe loading feature coded in the hook, which replaces that "Guide" menu with a new one which loads a .ini file's content... it would be nice, but I don't know if it's possible. If it is, then mod makers here could write small descriptions and user manuals... that way we wouldn't have to alt+tab out the game to see which key is binded to a command via another script or hook.

 

So yeah.. this tool is cool smile.gif
