Hmmm thanks for properly explaining when it happens, i didnt test it this way as i wasnt expecting it :D

Maybe settings the game folder to read only could help?

Okay, so the automatic download setting and -skippatchercheck only work if the game gets new content or a new patch. If you change/delete any files of a game you have installed it will start to download the "right" files no matter what. 

 

Seems like this one is in Rockstars hands and I don't have any hope that they will change this.

 

Oh and the folder was read only already.

Right now the only working method I have found is to just use the offline mode of RGL. Disconnect your PC from the internet, start RGL, wait for it to go into offline mode, now you can reconnect to the internet. RGL will notice that you are online again but will stay in Offline Mode as long as you don't restart it. 🤷‍♂️

Offline mode still gives you achievements, if you are into that.

the path i extracted the sa downgrader to is RSG>GTASA>SA DOWNGRADER
The bactch and exe are in RSG>GTASA>

My question is do I need to have the STEAM version in the GTASA directory when I run the batch file?

I've reinstalled the game several times. I've used other dowgrader methods and really wanna give this one a shot.

Thanks in advance for your hard work!

 

I too had this same issue with permissions and not recognizing files/folders

I use windows 10 64-bit and have SA installed via the RGL.

The folder in program files has all rights.

When I run the .bat there are some messages about files not existing. The folder audio/streams is a lot emptier after this proces (haven't checked other folders).

If I open the new .exe, it shows in task manager but nothing else happens.

Any idea what's going wrong?

 

Edit: After deinstalling everything and reinstalling outside program files I appear to have it working.

Hi, I'm facing a problem with the GTA IV CE radio downgrader.

 

All radios work fine. Cut songs are back. But every few minutes when I get in a new vehicle, engine sound doesn't load right away. Sometimes the car is completly silent for a couple of minutes. It seems to affect every kind of vehicle. But it's more common with sport cars and bike. I guess it's because they appear less often in traffic.

Anyway it's very disturbing driving withtout making a sound and I had to remove the downgrader.

 

Any idea what may cause this issue?

 

I'm playing on Steam with FusionFix. Game is in French, just as Windows 10.

I've tried on a clean install. With the hotfix. No improvement.

 

Thank you very much.

I actually re-downloaded FusionFix for a clean install after deinstalling the radio downgrader. And the FusionFix ini I'm using now has already comment out that section. I just didn't try the downgrader again after that.

 

I'll try out now.

 

Thank you very much for the answer!

That's intended. It was always like that, even before this CE release.

Today there was another GTA IV update which broke the downgrader for my installation, heard some people saying it added the removed stations back to the game. I'm currently reinstalling the game, hopefully my save file wasn't corrupted because I was going for 100%.

 

Edit: Launched the game and the radio stations are still missing, I read that they had been restored but that isn't the case.

they roll back to pre patch form - so no EFLC stations

 

Saves were never corrupted - since they migrated to CE, CE has new save format that is incompatible with patch 8 and lower, seems like the newest patch they quickly roll back'd cant also read the new save file format

Seems like they didn't fully test the patch before putting it out, Rockstar at its best lmao

worst offense is that the old patch (aka current one too) somehow got broken after certain date and gives error with some social club initialization lol

and to fix that, you gotta set you date to few days or weeks back.

Lets just say, I know a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy, who let me be able to get the audio from an update before the update that removed said music. :D AKA just the audio folder for iv and the other one for eflc. So I have every iv and elfc song together in complete edition. :D 

 

Just vastly different hearing eflc vladivostok fm and electro choc when playing as Niko.
