The VCS PC format that's been done is only good for files that are loaded on initial start, it can't be used for streaming things as it would take too long to work or be pretty damn resource heavy.

 

Its basically PNG packed in a custom style with the game being told where and how to read it, hench the name SPTA.

Wonder if anyone here's up to the task of reverse-engineering the new DFF format for SA Mobile.

I'm wondering what's gonna happen if those models will be used in MVL vehicle archive...

Game will most likely crash, but...

Again, can we not wait until the Android version is out so we can grab the UNCOMPRESSED textures? PVR compression sucks, and most people apply DXT compression on top of that when importing to a TXD. Yes, the files are, it's great we know what's higher res and stuff, but right now, you're not getting the best quality versions of these new textures and art. Seems like a waste of time seeing as someone else will come along and do the mod again when the UNCOMPRESSED files are available.

I love the high-res load screens, but it's too bad they only included half of the screens from the PC version. It might be possible to upscale the rest though...

Good work, but I'll not add to OP right now. I'm gonna stick with Ash, it's better to wait until Android version comes out.

 

So Ash, what are tou saying is that when Android version comes out, everything will be in best quality? Even the radar icons?

I was wondering about these. Is the donut shop accessible in the mobile version? It's one thing redoing the unused radar icons along with the others. But it seems weird that they made entirely brand new icons which never existed in the original for unused content.

 

Also, does anyone know what the bar chart-looking icon is for?

Notice the text going outside the boxes? Is that caused by the new fonts, the fonts.dat file or the GInput graphics?

Text issues are the result of GInput itself.

Easiest way to fix is to use this mod by ThirteenAG : Outlined Subtitles. Which removes those black boxes.

Here's something you guys might like. The Android version has much nicer versions of the PS3 and 360 button icons for some reason.

Told ya it would. Most artwork should be slightly better to, PVR compression on the iOS destroys small colour details.

I don't know about "nicer", those look a bit plain to me. I prefer the previous ones.

methodunderg, IMO removing the black boxes doesn't fit into SA. I already had a hard time editing this script to let only the subtitles outlined.
SilentPL, you said something about fixing the no award icons some days ago, any news on that?

 

And yes, Android textures are better.

I guess it all comes down to a matter of opinion. I like them, because it gives it a more 'modern' look

Not very exciting, but just for completion's sake here's the Mixtape icon from Android.

Mixtape is the custom station in the iOS version. I guess you could replace the User Track Player logo with it, or something.

Any idea if Mixtape is actually supported on Android or is it still needlessly restricted to the Steve Jobs Master Race?

Huh, no. The PC version is the best one in this case, since the Android and iOS version are just recompressed versions of the already compressed PC version.

Other textures, like radar and icons, seems to be the same.
