First of all...I'm tired

About that pvr-iphone-texture-stuff...

 

[name].txt --> include a list of name, size, hashs(?), etc.

[name].pvr.tmb --> seems to be a thumbnail...

[name].pvr.toc --> include offsets

[name].pvr.dat --> include image data

 

menu.* for example...

...a shoppingcart?

 

Maybe 'they' used something like this...

...don't know.

 

 

//EDIT-->

offset+8...

I wonder, can the Android textures be opened?

 

As stated before though, all the textures are the same (ones you can open as of now) and the new ones are in a different format. It seems though that visual effects are applied to the textures and they have new filtering options. (on higher end devices more so.) This could be some form of special texture, like normal and spec maps are in GTA IV.

 

Edit: Does the Android have the new img file formats or can all the new stuff be read with the current tools?

IMG archive can be easily opened by IMGTool.

Keep up!

Edit: Did you mod your timecyc.dat?

I have the same timecyc on pc and mobile, this one - http://www.gtagarage.com/mods/show.php?id=7683

But on mobile i changed the draw distance, to increase performance - http://www.sendspace.com/file/z5dqyl

I opened some textures by oinkoink's method, but they have swizzling. How fix it?

First post on here in a very long time. I'm rather curious about the .txd bit of it all. I made a post on the reddit thread about all of this, and saw another post about this very thread.

Has anyone had a chance to eyeball the sfx.RAW file? It's the largest one in the app, and I'm very interested as to what is stored in there.

Otherwise, I had noticed the relation in one of the text files, naming each individual image in the .txd of a vehicle as what I'm guessing is a hex something or other? I had never been very educated on the whole Hex thing. More or less what all I know is perusing with a text editor, IMGTool, and TXDEditor.

VC happened to be my first foray into PC game modding, I like to think I have the most experience with it over any other game.

Cracking this code...Would make me feel like a kid all over again =P

 

EDIT: I have gone through the thread, and some of what I've said, such as the Hex dealy, I've taken from some posts. So thanks for enlightening me on that bit. Had no idea what those values were referring to.

EDIT 2: Has anybody else noticed that with the Tape Deck radio station, it repeats the first song after anything happens? Like a mini-cutscene, and it will start the first song over again. There's no shuffle function or anything, which kind of bugs me. What REALLY bugs me, is the fact that I hear the first 5 seconds of the same freaking song 12 times within one minute of playing on a regular mission.

i don't think modding can be done on ios6 it has some lock that prevents you from editing files

 

as for android i can now see it's on select P2P sites

i think that The sfx.RAW is the file for audio

Debug menu might be more useable on the PC version. Try and see if you can get it on PC.

Pretty sure it's same as PC version, it holds all sound effects and speech (only words or short sentences) Radio, cutscene audio and some others are single mp3 files.

Ohhh. Thanks guys. I never fiddled with it much back then, so I guess I didn't remember seeing it.

So is anyone else up for GTA:BTTF Mobile? What about models? Has anyone toyed with those?

 

EDIT: if anyone could media fire a gta3.img loaded with saber as a delorean I would be greatly appreciative.

There's only 1 mod that should be worked on, and that is San Andreas Map to Vice City Mobile.

Not these stupid BTTF mods lol.

What if you were to add a car, and put in the txd also like on PC?

Cant we just force the app to not look for the .dat and use only the gta3.img?

Damn it, R* hasn't left any file of main.scm source this time. confused.gif

But they left something better, their compiler tounge.gif

Thanks to Silent angry.gif, he is a bad guy.

Okay, I'm almost certain the game uses little to nothing inside the gta3.img folder. I replaced it with the same one from the PC version and no crash but no changes. Weird huh? I'm still working on getting the Delorean into the game but everything I have replaced so far has done nothing. It seems when you replace something with PC no changes happen but when you replace it with something from the app (Player.dff to lawyer.dff) the change occurs. Almost as if a back up is stored somewhere?

i tried to play with map files on my Android version.

 

this is Los Santos stadium with no textures:

that's was easy like old times.

 

some textures from VC with same names was rendered on model.

 

PS when i've created separate file for this game skipped it, but when i've added it to the original nbeach.ide / ipl it works fine. model was converted and added into gta3.img.

Wanna give Vice City the finger...I mean fingers?

 

Offset: 0x6EB

 

Options:

00 = off,

01 = on

Thanks to Dingleman for his set file

 

Edit: As pointed out by City_Poke912, the offset also controls other Xbox features like the HD cars.

@oinkoink Awesome stuff man, keep it up!

@nkjellman I'm pretty sure the debug menu requires both the SCM and the EXE to have it switched on.
