How to fix this MEd problem in GTA3?

Recommended Posts


Hello, I'm new to modding.


Recently I've downloaded MEd and I'm using it with SA. It works perfectly!


But I'd like to edit Liberty City in GTA 3 because it's smaller and simpler than San Andreas.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong, so here's my procedure:


1. I create a new .IPL and a folder with the same name as the .IPL file, and then save the file inside that folder.

2. I close MEd, go to data folder and edit gta3.dat so that the new .IPL is on the bottom of the file.

3. I open MEd, and go to Scene tab where I select the new .IPL and LANDne.IPL.

4. On the IPL tab, I add road (ID: 1117) in the new .IPL.

(I'm trying to make a brigde to Ghost Town. I simply want to place road in the air, and I place the first road object in front of the closed tunnel, with X rotation set to 152)

5. I start GTA3 and the game will freeze at 80% loading screen. When I press anything, the program crashes without error messages.


I've noticed that the game will work if I only place one object... Adding the second object will lead to crash.


So am I doing something wrong? Please help!

All I can say is that you might have a different version that won't support modding well. Try downloading a modding version of GTA3 and it might work (v1.0, I guess that's the one who supports modding). If you have a version that supports modding, sorry, I don't know. Ask anyone. This is all I can help you with, sorry.

I've tried 1.0 today and it's not working.

I can download and install any map mod and it works, but mine keeps crashing :cry:
