Are objects solid or can you walk through them?

Not with this tutorial as wdr is only a model file and not collision. But I just released a basic wbd (collision) exporter.

I figured out the issue. Apparently, newer Nvidia drivers dropped support for the OpenGL thing you are using. Some kind of texture system you use to display them in Shadow mapper isn't supported anymore. Going to an earlier driver fixed the issue.

I encountered 2 problems. First of all OpenIV wouldn't start. I redownload GTA4 from steam today, therefore I maybe have a exe file that is to new? The second thing is that Shadow Mapper doesn't work, when I click select it just doesn't doe anything (I loaded in the path to my GTA folder.)

 

Kind regards,

me

@M-92: Looks like it can't read the key from the exe. I've never tested this with steam so it might not work with the steam version.. Sorry

Same error here, even though it was working perfect a couple of weeks ago I even removed the statue of happiness.. If im not mistaken its something to do with the new java auto-update cause it was working fine for me before it updated by its self :-/

 

Still trying to work around this if i find a solution ill be sure to let you know...

 

 

 

Btw, is there anyway to place the models exported with this script manually for those who cant open shadow mapper?

 

 

Fix Found! Just copy the .exe launcher from shadow mapper 0.1a in to your shadow mapper directory and run it! (tested on x64)

Got both openiv and shadow-mapper working (I borrowed a dvd version from a friend). However when I re-render shadowmapper the object just doesn't show. I guess the problem is my object, so could someone perhaps post a object that is confirmed to be working so I could try that?

1. Select the face(s) you want to apply a material to

2. Select a ball and click the small button after "Diffuse: "

3. Select bitmap and select the img you want to use as texture

4. Apply it to the selected faces.

Eeh? Can you take a screenshot of the model you're trying to import? Cause I don't really see a problem.. there won't be a different way of assigning materials..

@Charger, try physically typing .wdr after the file name in the export field- that works for me when there's no reasonable explanation/cause for errors

 

I'm gettn an error when trying to close/save it (and it erases all data in the IDE file leaving it blank)

Noel was able to place the model in game, but using the same IDE line he did, I get these IDE errors.. any suggestions?

 

user posted image -using the default nj.liberty IDE file (renamed to track)

 

user posted image - using a modified IDE with only one line

 

user posted image - using Noel's successful line

Not sure if this is what causing it but I get the same error when I open an ide entry on the ide tab and then press cancel. I've got to select the wdr again and wtd then hit the ok button.

really hard to see waht exactly this error is. but because it's from saving it should be something with your ide, or shadow mapper

 

did u try with administrator rights? or use in compatibility mode? maybe it's a simple error.
