GTA Vice City Mobile Modding

Recommended Posts

user posted image

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City: 10th Anniversary Edition was released today, and I want to thanks both Rockstar and War Drum Studios for port of one of the best game in GTA saga. GTA:Vice City 10th Anniversary Edition is a port of the same RenderWare engine, and our modding tools can be used for modding.

 

 

Modding

In iOS devices is direct access to game files besides Android.

In Android devices, extract files from .obb file (by Winrar or 7Zip) and extract it into Android/data/com.rockstargames.gtavc/files.

 

 

Audio

They are saved at 64kbps. Few songs are cut from mobile release. It really doesn't matter, because we can easily replace it.

 

Removed songs:

Michael Jackson "Billie Jean"

Michael Jackson "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin"

Ozzy Osbourne "Bark At The Moon"

Kate Bush "Wow"

Herbie Hanc**k "Rock It"

Afrika Bambaataa "Looking For The Perfect Beat"

And a couple of songs from Radio Espantoso.

Thanks to Ash.

 

SCM

 

VERSION=2.2.MobilePUBLISHER=ThirteenAGDATE=06.12.12[OPCODES]03A8=1,save_float_to_debug_file %1d%03A9=0,save_newline_to_debug_file0454=3,useless_store_debug_camera_position_to %1d% %2d% %3d% 0463=3,useless_store_debug_camera_target_point_to %1d% %2d% %3d% 0488=1,  model %1o% exists04B0=2,  %1d% > %2d%; $ > any 04B1=2,  %1d% > %2d%; @ > any 04B2=2,  %1d% > %2d%; any > $ 05A9=1,get_debug_state_to %1d%05AA=1,%1d% 05AB=0,unknown 05AC=1,%1d% 

 

Additional opcodes to decompile(and compile) original mobile main.scm without any errors. My VICESCM.INI, just in case.

Thanks to ThirteenAG and Silent.

 

Also, R* left debug mode in SCM.

Access: previous radio + handbrake.

Sterring: analog up/down - switching option

analog left/right - enable/disable option

Lets hope we can crack those new IMG file formats.

 

This game from what Ash said uses the old file formats and new file formats for the IMG files. So there might be a shot at getting the game to read custom maps and vehicles.

 

I'll test it soon. It's 9:50 here US Central Time, so the game should be coming soon in the US. Might get it at 11:00 PM Central Time as it will be 12:00 AM East Cost Time.

Hi smile.gif First: Sorry about my bad englisch. But I'll try it.

 

I am new at GTA-Forums, but I have a long History of GTA-modifications (Published one of the first cars of San Andreas years ago and member at the VC to SA mod team.)

 

End of the last year, I've written this german tutorial for iOS-GTA3:

 

http://imendit.de/blog/imendit.de/blog/201...n-savegames-map

 

But it seems like, at this old way, it doesn't works for GTA Vice City.

 

I can not find the .TXD at any IMG-File sad.gif I have try to replace just a .dff with many different Cars, but the game still crashed any time.

 

I've found 2 IMG-archives for cars:

 

- gta3.img

- veh_high.img

 

But at both files, I doesn't found any TXD-file. Any idea where we can find the .IMG for the TXD-files? smile.gif

 

BTW: The game does only crashes if i replace the .dff at the veh_high.img. Doesn't matter at the gta3.img

 

gta3.img:

Yeah, the IMG's and TXD's that you have access to are the untouched things, same as the PC version, the NEW stuff is locked away in a new container and will be stored in these files, stuff like Vehicle textures, Weapon Textures, HUD stuff, any High res textures, Character Textures, etc, can be found in the following, but we can't access them yet:

 

gamemisc.pvr.DAT <=== This is where new textures are

gamemisc.pvr.tmb

gamemisc.pvr.toc

gamemisc.txt <=== This contains textures names, size, alpha status, etc

 

gta3hi.pvr.DAT

gta3hi.pvr.tmb

gta3hi.pvr.toc

gta3hi.txt

 

gta3ing.pvr.DAT

gta3img.pvr.tmb

gta3img.pvr.toc

This makes me think that Rockstar doesn't want us porting the higher quality updates to the PC version. They probably didn't like people doing that with the Xbox version.

Great Ash, thanks for this useful information. Now i do understand nkjellmans first post. smile.gif

Think so too. sad.gif The new Texture looks pretty nice at the iPad 2. I was surprised about the high quality of the textures. smile.gif

 

Well, lets hope we or someone else find a way ... smile.gif

...or the mobile version uses better, less hardware intensive compression. Anyone try deleting the new files to force it to revert back to the old? Worked on GTA3.

OK, doing some research, PVR files are pretty much advanced compressed images, but all the tools I find are like either expensive or out of date (can't open the file), so I'm on the right track, just need to wrap my head around this, i think it's an apple only format, so i might just wait out for the Android version!

 

EDIT: For those who are interested, this is what it's using (http://www.imgtec.com/powervr/insider/powervr-pvrtextool.asp)

GTA III had some file formats I haven't seen before. Didn't GTA III have some things updated on newer iOS devices that were improved over PC and PS2?

 

Well, I got the app. 3 more minutes to go. Gonna test some mss folder mods to see if the mss folder heli/skimmer height limit increase mod I have works, and also some scm script mods.

Yeah had a mess about with the texture tool, nothing seems to open it, and I'll be honest, i have no clue where to go from there, the TXT file contains all the details on every texture stored in the archive it represents, but I don't know what the tmb and toc ones are used for, possible some kind of encryption?

Well someone will come up with a tool. Its GTA. Very popular game and guaranteed someone will crack it eventually.

 

As I'm on an iPod Touch 4th Generation I may end up with the PC textures and models possibly. On the bright side this might make modding easier for me.

If texture files from Apple devices can't be opened, maybe Android version will help. But game still isn't released.

The Android version will be different. The PVR files are textures and models optimized for PowerVR chips, which are used in iPhone 4+. The Android version will be like GTA3 where it downloads the files optimized specifically for your GFX chip (gta3_xxx.img). For GTA3 the game used to fall back to the originals if it couldn't find the optimized files, has anyone tried the same for VC?

Got All Opened Up main.scm working. Cool thing is you can move the Speedometer around the screen in the options. You can explore all the islands, and all the interiors (including cutscene)

 

But I can't wait till I get my iPod Touch 5G. VC runs like III does on 4G. You need to run the app on a fresh reboot or else it will crash, and it crashes when you will go to save or pause the game. Also I don't have updated character models, or the dynamic shadows that I saw earlier. I don't even have the PC texture shadows. It also seems that the vehicles are the PC/PS2 vehicles. I do seem to have updated map textures. Not certain. On newer devices didn't GTA III have the Xbox vehicles and updated textures?

You are funny. smile.gif ASI mods is made for x86 architecture, they can not be applied to ARM. Besides that, memory addresses in gta_vc.exe and gta3vc(ios executable) are different.

We’re aware that some users have attempted to download Vice City: 10th Anniversary Edition from the Google Play Store and have experienced validation errors. Just to be clear: the game is not available for Android devices just yet, and if you’re seeing it listed on the Store then this is an error, and you shouldn’t attempt to download it. We’ll keep you up to date and let you know as soon as the game is live and available to purchase.

Kinda sloppy, eh?

However, I'd "blame" (praise?) War Drum Studios more for these leftovers.
