Open Limit Adjuster

Recommended Posts

TJGM

Just pointing out some observations.

 

The dynamic increase of some limits seems to not be working properly...I'm having to put them in "manual".

 

An example : MatrixList (there are others).

 

During the gameplay, Matrixlist was stuck at 899/900. As soon as I manually changed from "unlimited" to 5000, then that paremeter went to more reasonable values (floating between 3400~3800).

.

Maybe it was stuck at 899/900 because that's all it needed? If it needed to increase anymore it would've done so.

Kindly disagreeing of you...For me, at least, it seemed 899/900 was not a steady condition. Two facts support this view.

 

1 - As soon as I changed it, that parameter found its "confortable" condition very far away from original one (899 -> 3800).

 

2 - 899 value was being stuck, but after "releasing" it, this parameter went crazy...you know, when looking at certain direction, it got ~3800, looking at oposite direction, suddenly dropped to ~1900.

 

That second fact clearly shows that parameter was under "pressure" when in unlimited (900) condition.

 

Thanks for your attention anyway.

It's fine. It's by the nature of some limits that store something even if it's not needed to be stored, in MatrixList case, when it gets 900/900 and asks for another, the adjuster tries to find a unecessary matrix used there and remove it from the list to give space for another one.

 

If you want to see it actually needing more than 900, you should use something that let the entire map loaded (bnaryipl.cs, not recommended), then you'll notice that after some pressure it won't find another 'unecessary matrix' and give up to increase the limit.

 

Memory streaming limit for III/VC would be very much appreciated... Having texture-loading issues with Vice Cry & high-poly car mods. I've used the old-fashioned limit adjuster as temporary solution, but 2048mb (as high as you can get with that old tool) is still not enough.

That's the maximum you can get, I even think 2048mb might get the game unstable. That because the maximum amount of memory a tipical 32bit application can get is ~2GB.

 

Link/2012 what about adding a IMG limit? :D and is there a img limit?

Additional img files or...?

btw you shouldn't ask specifically for me

Hasn't Fastman already cracked that limit?

He may one day contribute to the project, and adding that cracked limit into this Limit Adjuster is up to him.

VCSPC has the limit increased too. More so, ditching the limit should be easy as I think std::vector would work here just fine (maybe even could free it after loading to save RAM).

I'd like to contribute my sources for vice city's path limit adjuster and paths "outside" the bounds hack. What I actually did for the paths was, I changed the CPathNode structure's member which holds the position by increasing the short data type to integer. I accomplished this by almost reverse engineering all of the CPathFind functions and adding hooks to several places that references those CPathNode's members. I also changed the pathnode index from short to integer data type and again added several hooks for those.

 

There are a few hooks remaining to complete but it should work without any problems.

 

Then there is also water boundaries hack I was working on for SOL which is uncompleted.

 

Also I did the game boundaries hack, which actually increases the sector count (80 * 80 * MUlTIPLIER * MULTIPLIER) unlike andy's version which just changes the sector length multiplier.

 

I know its very very messy, so please don't comment me on that. But I don't think I will continue working towards finishing it anymore as I have lost interest. My lack of motivation was that very few people who got "things" done were actually willing to share some of their code for my curiosity, and reverse engineering is a very painful task to do it by yourself. I had a very few people that would actually share their documentation (reversed structures, classes, functions and example codes). And most of the time, you'd just have to research things that were already done by someone (Not mentioning names here).

 

But I like your idea of open source where everyone can contribute and benefits everyone. And hence I hope my work adds up to making other people happy :)

 

If anyone plans to implement it to the open source adjuster, feel free to ask me lots of questions. :)

Maybe adding the limit for coronashadowsdistance:

 

0x6FD3A6 [float]

 

 

Can't do it by myself, cause the installation of visual studio doesn't work on my win8.1 :(

Let's celebrate your kindness of sharing your knowledge. That's the spirit on which this community was built.

 

Indeed, there are very few GTA scientists with disposition to share their researches.

 

Thats the reason I'm a big fan of LINK's work...most of his works is Open Source...and I don't like some "experts" out there, who intend to carry their "wisdom" to the grave. You know...people with big Egos and huge necessity of being adulated. Collecting Function Addresses as Gold....keeping their discoveries only for themselves.

 

 

I'm not a modder, not even a programmer, but as an Engineer I know how valuable is this kind of work you've done.

 

Great job.

I just put this and I finally could install several map mods without SA crashing at the loading screen. THANK YOU! :catloaf:

 

Now the only thing that would make this even better would be a way to make added handling lines work.

Also, is there an option to up the limit of IPL/IDE files on the gta.dat? After trying to add more than 3 additional IPL lines the game crashes.

Try and find Ryosuke's MapLimit ASI mod (it did come bundled with one of the previous versions of SRT)

is there a way to implement the dynamic vegetation (grass, cactuses, smal trees, small rocks) limit adjusting? In the project 2dfx topic, there is a cleo script which changes the distance of this vegatation, but it said there it's not properly working because of the "limits". So... is this limit can be extended?

AFAIK that limit has something to do with the 'nodes' ..

Same thing for the vehicles/peds draw distance. The SA Traffic mod extends the limit, but the limit is limited by the 'nodes'.

Hopefully Wesser will be able to tell us which functions/addresses are responsible. :^:

Would be interesting for OLA to incorporate its own Weapon Limit Adjuster... just sayin..

 

Someone should try to continue ryosukes work in that respect.. he did release the source to his wla

I hope IPL and IDE limits are supported on a next version, Sacky's old limit adjuster had these options but it's very buggy.

Hey i was not sure if it was better to post this in the SilentPatch thread or here, but anyways this is something that really bothered me:

Gta Wiki: "There is a limit on the amount of satchel charges that can be placed in the game: 32. After the limit is reached, any further placement of the charges won't appear in the game"

Yeah, just imagine the possibilities if that limit was hacked.

Yeah setting that too high would probably be overkill, and many PC's would turn to ashes, maybe a maximum of 64 or 128 idk. I just fell like 32 is too low, ya know you gotta blow some sh*t up sometimes :cool:.
