Character Switch


Zolika1351

Recommended Posts

A character switch mod for TBoGT.

This is more than your average character switch mod though, as it includes much more than just switching between the 3 characters. It includes the characters' models with every clothing item (also with hats and glasses for Niko), walkstyles, rifle and rpg walkstyles, voices, save/load system with all 3 characters, and individual wanted levels, timecycles, hud colors, health, cash, armor and weapons, clothes shops for all 3 characters, and all weapons from both episodes with working sounds, functional save beds and usable safehouse elevators. You can also enable AI for the other characters by pressing RCTRL + A then hire them as bodyguards by locking onto them and pressing G, dismiss with H.

This mod REPLACES TBoGT and would probably screw up the story if it didn't, so back up your setup2.xml if you want to play the original game.

Installation:

 

EFLC:

Unpack everything into your EFLC folder.

 

IV 1.0.8.0 + DLC:

For this version you need to use this guide to set up a 1.0.8.0 copy with DLCs in it, or this guide to downgrade your existing Steam copy to 1.0.8.0 with the DLCs in it.

After that's done, unpack everything into your IV folder.

Note that if you have xliveless installed you should delete GFWLProtectionDisabler as that'll most likely crash the game without GFWL.

 

Controls:

F10 to save the game

LAlt + F1-F3 to change character (F1 - Niko, F2 - Johnny, F3 - Luis)

DOWNLOAD LINK FOR EFLC (8.5)

DOWNLOAD LINK FOR IV 1.0.8.0 + DLC (9.0)

This is mind blowing. I might just reinstall EFLC for this mod someday. Insane job right there. I have a few suggestions, though. Not sure if they can be implemented but oh well.

 

-have separate phone numbers for each character, with separate friend activities

-have separate phone models (might be hard though)

-add all TLAD vehicles into the game

-bring in the TLAD biker gangs

-spice up life inside the Lost Clubhouse

-have separate computer accounts

-have some transition animations like in V

-have the characters spawned randomly after a certain ammount of time

-have the character safehouses be closed if using another character

 

These are my suggestions for now. If I'll have more ideas, I'll share them. Also if you didn't include the combined radiostations, you definitely should :)

Mission will be avalible with this mod?

That sounds like a good idea, but how would crossover missions that have multiple protagonists work?

Freely switching outside of cutscenes I guess

Though I can't even get The Cousins Bellic to work properly yet, so let's not get ahead of ourselves

Question, would you do mod like this for GTA SA like GroveStGTAV said?

SA doesn't have multiple characters as DLC, doesn't have openFormats support, and is unstable so I don't have any plans for it right now

This is actually pretty sick man! Very well done! Also are there going to be different huds for these characters? Like Luis for having the Tbogt hud and Johnny for having Tlad hud. If that is possible that is. And also, could you add for Johnny his old vest from GTA IV? But seriously, this is pretty awesome what you are doing here, I'm really enjoying this and some other done mods by you too as well, you got talent making these mods and you are doing an amazing job here. And so, keep up the good work :D. Seriously man, respect! (Also sorry for my bad english.)

Released v8.5

Added custom HUD colors for all 3 characters (using CharSwitchAddon.asi, don't copy the scripthook and asi for EFLC 1.1.2.0 as it doesn't work there, however it is compatible with EFLC 1.1.3.0 and both patches of IV)

I couldn’t help but notice in the video of your first post; when you switched over from a character that was driving to one that was in a passenger seat, the vehicle came to a stop; the same happened when you were in the helicopter. You’ve since added an option to turn on the IA for the characters and ability to recruit them to follow. I was just curious if you have also implemented the ability to set a waypoint as a passenger and have the IA character drive to that location (similar to the taxi cabs feature or Brucie helicopter pickup). It would make car chases with the police more possible if you’re not coming to a complete stop everytime you switch characters. Regardless, looks very interesting. Once I get a computer with the proper requirement to run this game with modifications with no problems, I’m definitely checking this out, along side VCR. Hope you keep working on it.

Woow! this is Awesome! this is the switch mod I dreamed of, I'm surprised how recent this was created considering script modders have abandon this game. I hope it's still in development, would love to see improvements with added features, especially like jinx suggestions.

also:

*death or arrest respawns are funky

*Niko & Luis helmets are not visible
*all tvs functioni

*Luis foot steps sound missing

*missing corresponding character idle animations

*functioning Stevie's  garage is a dud

*I don't understand how to get the hud colors to work, I have version 1.1.2.0 and (not related) but why are there fire station map icons?

p.s i'll edit this if anything comes up

If I make helmets visible, then after switching to another character and back, the helmet will stick.

Idle animations should work, did you forget to copy ambient.dat to the EFLC root common folder?

HUD Colors aren't supported on 1.1.2.0.

Awesome! Are you still working on this wonderful mod? Its actually a dream come true since I always wanted to combine the 3 games together.

 

For the missions, you should probably just add the Replay Mission feature for Niko and Johnny meanwhile you get The Cousins Bellic fixed.

Mod is awesome! But can you please fix little issue with hands Johnny and Luis, when they wearing Niko clothes(their left hand distorted and it looks a little weird).

And add suits from Perseus, if that possible.
