Save mod finally?

Recommended Posts

MaxTunnerX

Its been way too long we have been unable to save in GTA. Im surprised that nobody has made a save mod yet, especially when there are thousands of modders throughout the series. Is it really that hard? And if it isnt, can someone make it? Im convinced it would be much apreciated by the community.

 

BTW is it true that PS1 players could save GTA? And that you can save GTA with virtualbox somehow? If its true, how hard can it be to make a windows save mod?

PS1 only saves between levels, same as PC.

 

If you can run GTA1 in virtualbox then you can save the whole machine state.

What does the machine state mean? Also, isnt there a program to allow it in windows or something?

There's no program for saving GTA1. Machine state means all of the virtual machine memory and registers, it will do what you want if you can run GTA1 fast enough in a virtual machine.

But how hard can it be to make a save mod for GTA? I really dont think its something impossible, especially with means there are today. Pity that there is so little activity here. Maybe you know some big animals in GTA modding or some good programmers that could pull it off?

 

 

BTW, what about the GTA2 save system? It might give modders a clue.

GTA2 save system won't help, it's closed source and it would be easier to write a save mod from scratch. Anything is possible if you can find a talented enough coder with the time and interest.

Thats what Im talking about. However, this section of forum seems rather abandoned. I was hoping for more enthusiasm about this matter.

Certain versions of DosBox have save state ability's now, no need for virtual machines

Though Id still like to see this feature implemented in the windows version of the game, this looks awesome. Maybe there is a way to use the save state feature for windows applications without dosbox?

Ive just found and tried your version of dosbox, and everything works like a charm. It saves literally everything. Now I can enjoy the original GTA until proper mod gets released. Thank you.

Now is there a dosbox version with save support AND 3dfx emulation? That would look slightly better than the Windows version.
