Vice City - The Leftovers Fix

EDIT 2: Ok, not working again, when I cross the bridge near the construction site the game crashes with an unhandled exception error.

 

EDIT: I got it working, overlooked installing some files for the mall. Anyways, with this working I will very soon compile screenshots, fix up the weapon names, and finally be on track with this thread with credits and everything.

 

I have come back again and... I still can not get anything to work like at all. Vanilla Vice City, no other mods, constantly get the unhandled exception error at startup.

Are you using Dimzet's xbox mod?

 

Nope, none of Dimzet's material was used.

 

Well that is f*cking weird :D

 

I used the all in one pack posted a few pages back and had issues, it could be my part since when I modify GTA I always have bad luck but still, just to throw it out there.

First delete the original files then add the modded ones (from the pack).

 

Example:

Delete mall.col from gta3.img

Then add the mall.col from the pack to gta3.img

 

I have everything from the pack and my game works correctly even reinstalling it.

So instead of replacing them in TXD Workshop just delete and add?

Yep but use IMG Tool. I use it from install everything and for some reinstalls and no issues. :)
Delete and add. That is the trick. Not until in a closer future we will have modloader. :p

I have issue with that program, always, ALWAYS manages to ruin my IMG file when I delete and add files. Like I said I have horrible luck with modding any GTA game, only TXD Workshop works for me and even then I still have my moments.

It's weird. Unmark the only read thing on gta3.dir and gta3.img. Probably is that.

Can you link me that, I really would like to get to getting this thing to work. I am so behind on this, I feel horrible, and would like to actually get something I kinda spearheaded going.

1. Get G-IMG

2. Create III/VC img archive in it and then put all files (and rebuild if doesn't automatically)

3. Go to data folder and in gta_vc.dat before "# everything is loaded on a per directory basis and in alphabetical order" put CDIMAGE MODELS\VCLF.IMG (Of course models and VCLF depends where you have new img archive and how you named it)

G-IMG fails to work on my computer, does not even load. Using Windows 7 64-Bit by the way.

Another thing about the animations. Would it be possible to port over III drive-by animation to VC? I always thought VC one is unnaturally fast compared to slowly pulling out the Uzi in III.

Ok, after getting G-IMG to work I managed to get the pack to work with my own custom image, though thanks for the suggestion because your method proves to be much more cleaner and easier to setup than individual replacing of the files.

Double post, but now that I got everything working on my end I am going to pretty soon compile everything into a very easy to use file that requires no middling of the gta3.img file at all. Huge thanks to Tomasak for pointing out a much better method of installing the content. It will be crash free and a decent alternative until a Vice City mod loader comes along.

 

I also removed my link to the restored weapon names because the one I previously made was bugged and caused corrupted text when doing the Vigilante and Paramedic missions. I have since fixed that using a much better GXT editor. To add on to this, I am going to ask some permission from the author of the Vice City Beta Audio mod if I can upload a modified american.gxt from that here with the restored weapon names, with proper credit and a shout out to that mod since it is a good, optional add-on to go with this mod.

1. Is there any scripts exist to increase shadows draw distance in III/VC, like Wesser's shadowdist1500.cs for SA ?

2. I saw VC on Iphone and there was dynamic shadows for Tommy and peds ( like in SA ), is they already ported on PC ?

I would be careful with that, I tried the Mall Shadows fix with that method and it kinda bugged it out on my end.

On my game everything works correctly. Are you installing everything properly? Drag, drop and replace.

Yeah I did, I don't know, seems like the mall fix was bugged when I did the separate image trick with out of place shadows. Worked fine when I installed in in gta3.img... I just have horrible luck with these things. GTA hates me when I edit it. :p

Well, is so weird your luck haha. Your OS or PC can't run or have problems with IMG Tool, G-IMG and probably because that you have problems with Vice City, I recommend you format your PC and install Windows 7 or reinstall your current OS again.

Really it is just my inexperience with modding GTA. I am kinda new to the scene admittedly.
