[GTAIV|EFLC|ASI] File Unlocker

Recommended Posts

Alexander Blade

 

-= GTA IV EFLC FILE UNLOCKER (SDFA DUMPER) =-

 

Description:

This is plugin for ASI Loader that allows to unpack/decrypt all crypted(sdfa) files from EFLC.

 

Supported versions:

EFLC.exe 1.1.1.0 (1st patch)

 

User manual by marsmillo: (thx dude)

 

- Place a asi Loader (like dsound OR xliveless OR...) in the mainroot of EFLC

- Place the SdfaDump.asi file in the same root like the asi loader

- Run your game

- A message on your desktop will appear, ignore it for now

- Let the game fully load until your in the main menu (or even ingame)

- Alt-tab out and go back to the message we just ignored, click oke

- Wait until a new message box pop-up, this means the asi script is done unlocking the files.

- Click oke, and now you can exit your game

 

In the mainroot of EFLC you will find the map SdfaDump (about 100 MB, 1877 files in 71 maps) This are the unlocked files with the same map structure as where the files where found before the were unlocked. The game DOES NOT read out of the SdfaDump map, all files you want to unlock you most copy manually to the correct place.

 

Don't forget to

 

- Delete the SdfaDump.asi file

- Make backups before overwriting something

 

Still having problems? The sdfadump script generates a log file, look intro the log for error reports.

 

Download:

Sorry guys no link , it's illegal -- already unpacked files

Will give it a try later tonight!

 

Edit:

I just used your asi script to decode / unlock all the EFLC PC files.

Works like a charm. Thanks for this tool!

 

Thanks Alexander Blade

We all know we can count on you!

Okay, so i put the ASI file into EFLC dir. But nothing happens, and when i have the latest dsound.dll in the directory, the game doesn't start up full stop.

What's going on?

For those with EFLC ONLY - ** mine is disc PC version **

 

I posted this becuase the OP reads like its only for IV install directory version.

 

Place the asi in:

 

 

(drive):\Program Files\Rockstar Games\EFLC

 

Along side dsound.dll (I simply copied the version I had in my IV modded install).

 

1. Run the game, you get a box pop up saying "Do not click OK until after loading screens" with an OK button.

 

2. Leave it and let it load to the main menu.

 

3. Alt tab back to that ok pop up, press ok, that will disappear.

 

4. Exit the game.

 

5. You will have the files in the folder:

 

 

(drive):\Program Files\Rockstar Games\EFLC\SdfaDump

 

6. As stated copy the contents of this folder back to "EFLC" folder to overwrite the same files to the non encrypted versions, although personally I created a backup of EFLC first, or at least the files to write back (As I have the hard drive space).

 

Finally I can now tweak this FPS pop-in lag fest to my liking, Alex thank you sir. cool.gif

I found it in the OP's signature : "ASI Loader"

The TLAD GFWL DLC content uses a different exe file so this unlocker won't work on it. I wonder what Rockstar changed with that exe or what else is different.

DLC even is NOT in main dir , use this ONLY with EFLC , after you press message box with text "Ok" you must wait for next message box with text "Done"

This doesn't work for me at all, the game doesn't even start up.

I also have the patch installed already.

Tried GTAMonkey's guide because i have the retail EFLC PC version.

@ GTAMonkey2012_

Again, as i said before, when i have these files in the EFLC main dir, the game does not load up at all, i only get as far as logging in with the social club app, and that's it.

Here is a picture of my EFLC contents.

The reason why the asi file looks like a notepad file is because once upon a time i downloaded an asi file and accidentally had a box ticked that said "Always use this program to open files like this" and the selected program was Notepad, asi files still work for me such as trainers and what not, so i'm not assuming that is the reason for my problem.

Update your game to version v1.1.1.0 will solve this problem.

NOT for me, i have started EFLC, then the message box popped up and i started the game via Rockstar Social Club, i've chosen TLAD and after it's loaded i pressed ALT+TAB and clicked on OK in the message box.

I've quit the game and checked SdfaDump folder and there were just the decrypted GTA IV text-based files. Maybe i haven't waited long enough? Does it took long for you?

@SLAYERMAGGOT: I think it is not necessary to load up either one game (TBoGT or TLAD), press alt-tab when you're on the screen of choose TLAD or TBoGT.

 

offtopic: BTW, just modified the cargrp.dat from TBoGT and enjoying the Brickade! biggrin.gif
