GTA4_Butch

Hi all

 

I am new to the GTA series. I got the game last night via Steam.

I had been reading here some over the last couple weeks before I decided to buy the game. I found out about GTAIV First Person mod and that's really what sold me on it.

However, while I didn't expect any problems with the single most important mod I want for my game, I can't get it to work cryani.gif

 

I'm trying to get the First Person mod to work.

I'm having no luck and don't have a clue what I am doing wrong blush.gif

Please somebody help me with this.

 

Currently I have (all in my GTAIV root folder):

 

FileCheckFix.asi (seems to be working, a box opens saying GTA IV File Check Fix and writes a log when click OK)

FirstPerson.asi (also writes a .log)

FirstPerson.ini

ScriptHook.dll

xlive.dll (I also tired dsound.dll)

 

Here is it's FileCheckFix.log;

=======================================

// --- GTA IV FILE CHECK FIX --- //

Started ...

Game version is 1.0.0.4

Files check started

All files are ok

=======================================

 

Here is the FirstPerson.log;

=======================================

Log start: Fri Dec 25 23:16:22 2009

[iNFO] GTA IV Script Hook 0.3.0c - Initialized

[iNFO] Process base address: 0xa40000

[iNFO] Using game version 3.0.1

[iNFO] Awaiting game thread creation

[iNFO] Script Hook - Shutdown

=======================================

3.0.1? Why, I don't know why it says that.

I patched my game with the 1.0.0.4 patch from Rockstar.

Could I be using the wrong version of ScriptHook? If so, please point me to the one I need. Well that goes for any files you think I may have wrong.

Anyway, nothing happens when I hit the keys listed in First Person readme. V key only brings up standard defaulf views. The FP keys (B, N M, L do nothing).

I've tried launching via launchGTAIV.exe or GTAIV.exe. That makes no difference either.

 

I have tried everything I could find to do. I may have missed something in all the post I read on this mod, but I thought I understood what all I needed to make it work.

If anyone knows what I need to do in order to get it working, I will be so very grateful.

Please be specific, I am totally new to this.

 

I'm using Vista x64.

 

Thank you very much smile.gif

Hi again

 

Are people ignoring our request for help because you think we stoled the game? I asked because of the replys in the other thread where again Fluxenstien asked to be helped getting this mod working. He was called a pirate.

I can only speak for myself, and I will. I did NOT steal this game. I bought it off Steam the other day when it was on sale. And to be perfectly honest, I only bought it because I had read about this mod and the ability to play from 1st person perspective. When I couldn't get it to activate, I made this post. No one helped and Fluxenstien made his own post about the same problem.

 

I posted a screenshot of Steam > My Games. There you will see GTAIV as a 100% ready PAID FOR game.

http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtop...st&p=1059711377

So please don't concluded I (we) are using stolen games.

 

If somebody will please explain what we need to do (what files are required) to get this mod working, I will be very grateful.

Thank you smile.gif

NEW: V1.1 Updated for 1.0.4.0

You appear to be running v1.0.0.4 (patch #5), but the mod only lists support for patch #4 - this may cause a problem. You could also try updating your copy of Script Hook to 0.4.0.

Game version is 1.0.0.4

Files check started

All files are ok

 

I think I have tried all the latest files.

With all due respect, it is difficult to find what is the latest and what are older version files. There is no categories to look in. Threads with files are scattered around and new threads started for the same file, etc. It is kinda a mess for people looking for what they need and what they don't.

 

Al I want is the First Person view mod to work. I don't care about any other mod and probably won't even bother with any.

So I need exact instructions on what files (any and all) that I need, and how to properly install them in order for the mod to work.

 

Can mod makers not include all the files needed to make their mods work?

It is very frustrating when there are so many different scripthooks, filecheckfix things, .dll's etc.

I need the ones that work with this mod and my version of the game.

Somebody is bound to know what works and what I need. Certiainly I am not the olny person wanting to change the game to first person perspective, am I?

 

Please help.

You were helped, one post above yours, the key was revealed to you already, the first person mod doens't work on game version 1.0.0.4.

 

You have two options:

 

1) Downgrade to 1.0.4.0

2) ask the modmaker to add support for 1.0.0.4

Thank you.

I think I understand now.

I didn't understand what the difference was. I thought they were the same thing. This is all new to me. blush.gif

 

I found the patch and downloaded it. It has an auto installer, so I can't see what files are in it.

So, what do I do to downgrade to 1.0.4.0?

 

Does anyone know;

What files I need to remove from my game to be replace with the older versions?

Okay, I know what I need to do now, to have version 1.0.4.0.

 

I did make a mistake and took version 1.0.4.0 from Steam and got the patch at Rockstar that is 1.0.0.4

That's what had me confused. I'm sorry for the hastle.

I am just going to uninstall it and redownload it from Steam again. That will give me a fresh install of the version I need to make this work (I hope).

 

I would still appreciate it some will post a list of exactly what files I need to get it working in a fresh install of version 1.0.4.0

Pretty PLEASE smile.gif

This part is still very confusing to me. There is so many different things to choose from, I'm lost here.

Having not been around during all the creations going on, it is all thrown on me at once and I just don't know what I need. I sure don't want to mess up my game again though. And really do want this one mod to work.

 

Thank you for the time.

Ok, indeed you need to reinstall the game and then apply the patch 4 (so not the latest one), bringing the version up to 1.0.4.0 instead of 1.0.0.4.

 

Then to make that mod work you will need the mod itself (obviously smile.gif), then scripthook.dll (which I believe is included in that mod) and an asiloader. There are three, you just need one to operate the first person mod though. I personally use yaasil, which works for me 100%. Xliveless is another one, but disables online play, the third is alexander blade's asi loader. Any of them will do, as long as you only use ONE at a time.

 

edit, at least three spelling errors, my oh my, must be my keyboard hey smile.gif

I feel sorry for people trying to figure things like this out... Damn R* decided to confuse people by going backwards with the version number. Logically, 1.0.0.4 would be an earlier version than even 1.0.1.0. Who knows what R*'s logic was.

Thank you very much.

 

I am redownloading now. The game is version 1.0.4.0 from Steam I believe, so I won't need Patch 4 (although I do have it).

I think I might get it working this time. I know more about what I am looking for and will first try the ones sjaak327 recommended.

 

It will be in the morning sometime before I try it, but I will be sure to let you know everything I used once it is working wink.gif

I believe steam updates the game to its latest edition (patch 5----->the bad guy)

if you right click on the game in steam and click on 'view update news' you'll see that the game has the latest update, which is the Nov. 11th update, same day patch #5 was released.

Oh no cryani.gif

 

Well, I just turned off auto update for it in Steam. I also ran the patch 4 installer. The game is working, but I don't know where to find the version number.

 

A member at Steam forums told me the game comes as 1.0.4.0, but as you say, the Steam update says it will be updated to the latest version. So I suppose it came to me as 1.0.0.4.

So I really don't know what version I am on right now. The patch seemed to have applied, I got no error and the game runs. Still before I mess with it, I would like to confirm my version number, if possible?

How do I find out if my game is 1.0.4.0 or 1.0.0.4?

 

Thanks

Go to the gtaiv directory, select gtaiv.exe, right click, details, and it should tell you the exact version number.

My GTAIV.exe says 1.0.4.0, but it won't launch the game. I get a error message saying the program has closed.

I can launch the game from LaunchGTAIV.exe and it works.

I haven't tried the FP mod yet though.

 

UPDATE EDIT:

The game will also run by launching it from the Steam > My Games list.

I only get the error when I double click the GTAIV.exe from within the main folder.

I need a scripthook for the mod. It doesn't come with on.

With so many out, all doing different things, I am unsure which one I need.

Will someone recommend one for use with:

1.0.4.0

YAASIL

FirstPersonV1.1

 

Again, this is the only mod I plan to use, so I don't need all the bells and whistles, so to speak.

I will give it try once directed to the scripthook that will best suit my needs.

 

And again I want to thank you for all the help. I really have read a lot, trying to figure it out on my own, but you guys have helped me make sense of it all. I do appreciate that. I really was sorta lost, lol. Modding this game isn't like anything I have ever had to do. LOL, to you guys its probably nothing, but to me,,, well it is different to say the least dontgetit.gif

It's working colgate.gif

 

Here is what I did;

Steam GTAIV download.

GTAIV_MAINTENANCE_UPDATE_1040_EFIGS.exe

GTAIVScriptHook_0.4.0_Redist.zip

YAASIL.zip

FirstPersonV1.1.zip

 

I put a shortcut to LaunchGTAIV.exe on my desktop and launch the from it.

At first it didn't work, until I got into a car. At that point hitting the V key put me in first person perspective.

Once I got out of the car, I was in 3rd person again. Again hitting V key put me into first.

 

Thanks again for all the help.

I am sure I will now be able to play and enjoy the game wink.gif

when youve done that, setup your steering to move the mouse... once youve done that

You misunderstood. I didn't call you a pirate. I was defending you in a way, making it clear that the download you (we) were talking about was from Steam. Because of this reply;
