Cannot replace the player model


Recommended Posts


Hello there. I want to change Tommy Vercetti's model with new one, but the ingame player model is the same. I've tried a lot of instructions, but there is no result. So my actions are:

1. Uncheck the checkbox "read-only" for gta3.img and gta3.dir

2. Open gta3.img with img tool 2.0

3. Find and delete player.txd and player.dff

4. Add new player.txd and player.dff

5. Rename / delete player.bmp from models/generic.

No result. At all. I've also tried to "Rebuild the archive" menu item (nothing changes). Tommy model still the standart. I've downloaded the Niko Bellic model and texture, and a few more just for testing. Doesn't work.


I think it can be helpful information, that Tommy model works if player.txd and player.dff are deleted from gta3.img
