Dispatch.meta

I have noticed this file called 'dispatch.meta'.
It seems to set the spawns for the police during the wanted level.
When I edit it nothing changed ingame.

Does this file actually do anything or is it a leftover from previous patches or something?
And if so, is there another file which sets these spawns.

Alright, I am a console gamer , I checked the game file, I have found there is update.rpf, open the rpf with OpenIV and extract content.xml from update.rpf, search below texts

<Item>common:/data/dispatch.meta</Item>

After you found it, Delete the texts, And dispatch.meta is not patched anymore.

Or just edit the version of dispatch.meta that is already in update.rpf.

I tried to change some value of it, but it turnout becomes weired.

EG

I change the car those SWAT use from FBI2 to Riot, it just does not spawn when I get 4 stars.

And the number of SWAT officers inside the FBI2 is also incontrollable, the original file shows that the car should have 6 officers inside. But the game only spwans 3.

1. I know, you can't use the Police Riot for that (which is weird, since SWAT can hang from the sides), you can only use the FIB Granger and Sheriff Granger, perhaps the Park Ranger SUV, I haven't tested that.

 

2. The amount of SWAT is indeed uncontrollable, each vehicle has a set amount of occupants. The FIB Granger has 3 (a driver and two on the side), so the file does not say how many officers are inside a car, it tells how many to spawn. Normally it tells the game to spawn 6, so since each FIB Granger can have 3 occupants, it will spawn 2 of them, to reach the amount of 6.

Just spend a bit of time reading the code, it's a bit complicated to understand at first.
