[REL|VC] Vice City Neons

Recommended Posts

ThirteenAG

Some of the neons have see-through alpha bug (like the ones in the Starfish Island entrance).

I'll check it out when i'll be able to go though missions.

 

 

Also, is there any way to increase the required limits without MVL? MVL isn't stable at all at the moment.

I don't know. Didn't tested it much, but seems pretty stable to me.

The current version causes random crashes and some parts of the map occasionaly fail to load. At least here.

Maybe you could send a bug report to maxo? I don't think anyone is gonna come up with new limit adjuster for vc anytime soon.

Very nice mod. I remember thinking that adding more Neons all over Vice City would be cool. Especially in areas that are very drab.

If you want a limit adjuster you could check out Steve M's VC limit adjuster....I dunno if it'll do what you want, but you can have a look

 

http://www.steve-m.com/downloads/tools/limitadjuster/

 

But now that this mod has an update, I decided to check it out.

 

I can't seem to get it to run, I think because the read me confuses me a little bit.

 

Where it says "Paste content of neons mod archive to GTA VC root directory." That means it's main folder right, with the .exe in it? Well, I have put it there as well as in the maps folder....but I'm still a little confused by it.

 

Also the line "Paste

CDIMAGE data\maps\neons\neons.img

at the beginning of the file."

 

It might seem straight forward, and I have tried putting it first thing, top line but it doesn't work. I've also tried other places but no luck. I placed in all of the IPL and IDE and the COL files in the right places at least. But luckily I backed up my VC.dat file so I can keep retrying.

 

Any ideas as to what is wrong? aside from me possibly miss reading a couple of lines.

Yes, there's folder called data in the archive, there's folder called data in root directory, i don't see what's the problem.

The very beginning of the file should do the trick. Why have you decided it doesn't work? If it crashes, paste the messagelog and errorlog from MVL. Maybe you haven't installed correct values for limits in globalm.xml?

Oh, I had a mind slip, normally I tend not to copy and paste data folders, I usually manually move the files within them myself. I put the neon folder in the root instead, I think I've been up too long.

It's possible I haven't got the right values, I wasn't massivly confident on it. Here's the logs. I puu.sh'd them

It's crashes on CFileLoader::LoadCollisionModel, not sure what's wrong. Try with my globam.xml: http://pastebin.com/DDGi9QmJ

Ah, well it has partially fixed it. The game did load, the problem is it will only partially and if I stay inside an interior it will crash. Outside will work but major structures like houses often don't load. I tried to then increase the limits further but the same thing. Eventually it stopped loading again. I reverted back to your .xml with no changes and it stopped loading still.

 

I have the error and message logs again.

Well, are you using clean game? What's happening without the mod, but only with MVL?

On a clean install the same thing happens, the game won't load my save or start a new game, same deal as with other mods.

Unfortunately that doesn't seem to have worked, the load bar only makes it up half way like usual.

 

I have no ideas either, I thought maybe it didn't want to have so much to load and so it couldn't handle it....which would make sense with other mods installed. But on a clean install, I don't know why it would think there is too much to load...that's if that is what is going on. It looks like that might be the case, as before when I put the neon mod in, it would crash on loading, but upon increasing the limits it would load, all be it partially....but it was always going to be partially no matter what values it tried. Now, it seems to have given up doing that even.

I've tried to install the V2 package and my game loads only to half of the bar and crashes. With just MVL it loads properly, it gives an error (can't find procedure GetTickCount64 in kernel32.dll), but it can be clicked and game loads further without problems. Do anyone has any ideas what it could be?

 

I've tried to load it with VCLimitadjuster, but with the same result.

 

The basic package works normally without any problems.

 

The error code is: Unhandled exception c0000005 at Address 0048e3b1.

 

I've tried both halves of the package, but with exactly the same result. Google didn't bring any help.

How to install? Only copy the files to VC folders like the readme.txt says or what?

 

I want install it without the MVL tool if is possible.

Not possible, because of limits.

That's really nice, but i got a question what does each of these do?

InVisibleEntityPtrs = 5000VisibleEntityPtrs = 5000StreamingObjectInstancesList = 7500TimeModels = 1500

>InVisibleEntityPtrs = 5000

>VisibleEntityPtrs = 5000

That's to fix crashes with increased draw distance of objects, it used to be hardcoded in Project 2dfx and IDE Tweaker.

 

>StreamingObjectInstancesList = 7500

Flickering fix.

 

>TimeModels = 1500

Well this mod finally runs for me with limit adjuster, but I discover a bug, a neon on nowhere.

 

Screens.

Original:

With neons:

That white neon square. Obviously like Vice City Stories.

Not a bug.. well it is, but I guess its intended. The mod restore neons from Vice City Stories, that includes neons on things that aren't even in Vice City. :p

Point is, it's impossible to remove that part of neon without editing model. And removing that neon mean removing neon from all building. So i decided to leave it that way.

 

Btw, is anyone interested of making hq textures for this?

You could just simply add VCS bildboader where is that neon:

I don't have VCS map files to do so, i used only files, MAJEST1C_R3 sent to me. I think it's easier to edit the model though.

Anyone feel like Las Venturas needs a bit more color and lights? I mean compared to Las Vegas it looks a bit bland.

Maybe a Las Venturas Neons mod in the future?
