Improved Animations Pack


B Dawg

Recommended Posts

B Dawg

Features:
- Console animations for the Assault Rifle (no firing delay);
- Player & AI shoot at equal rates of fire;
- Faster drive-by rate of fire;
- Proper reload animations for Assault Rifles & Street Sweeper;
- Fixed SMG crouch reload not having any sounds;
- Optional console Uzi & SMG animations.

Update:
- Fixed Assault Rifles & Street Sweeper using Sniper Rifle reload sounds;
- Swapped weird IV Sniper reload animation for the unused normal one.

Update 2:
Update: Split Rifles (+ Assault) & Shotgun anims into 2 versions (IV & TLAD) because their holster/unholster animations didn't match their character specific idle animations (minor but was pointed out by a user so I fixed it) + some misc changes.

 

 

Original post:

Spoiler

 

Ever been bothered by the fact that the AI shoot Assault Rifles slower than you, making them far less dangerous than they should be?

The reason for that is that the firing animation itself is slow, but it is multiplied via Weaponinfo.xml for the Player only.

To fix this, I had to import the animation into 3ds Max and scale it accordingly. I also removed the firerate multipliers in Weaponinfo.xml, as well as adjusted the timebetweenshots value which affects firing speeds during ragdolls.

The animation is also based on the console one, meaning there is no weird firing delay preventing you from rapidly tap-firing.

 

Blindfiring animations remain unchanged due to the fact that the MP5 & Assault Rifles share the same blindfiring animation, so instead I've decided to remove the blindfire multipliers from the player to be on even ground with the AI.

Great modification, brother!

 

I took your modified firing animations and replaced TLAD's and TBOGT's in their original files. I also added the delay fix to TLAD. Not for TBOGT, though, as it has this delay issue with every firearm for some reason, so I left it as it is.

Actually, it´s the other way around.

The AI shoots correctly like on consoles while the player shoots faster but only on PC.

Well yeah, but the correct fire rate is too slow :P

Since they set a different firerate in the PC version, I assume that they intended to make it faster for both the player and the NPC AI, but just didn't figure out that it only worked for the player.

yeah, I agree on consoles the fire rate is too slow.

Glad they changed it.

Can you do something similar to the drive-by shooting animations for the sub-machine guns by the way? (well, and TLAD's automatic 9mm)

 

They shoot slower than usual in drive-bys.

I agree.

Are we sure it’s not the other way around, and that the fire rate is supposed to be slow for the player—just as it is for NPCs? Just like how for the longest time on PC, recoil/spread was broken?

I'm not sure, but given the fire rate that was set in the WeaponInfo.xml file, I assume that they intended to make it faster on the PC version. Otherwise, they wouldn't have added fire rate lines to begin with, as when I tried to remove them the assault rifles shot just as fast as they do with the NPCs.

I just checked (both video gameplay and console weaponinfo.xml). The firerates are identical between both versions. Both have fire rate multipliers applied to the player only.

Also correction to original post, the animation is based on PC one but with the firing delay removed (the console animation has a lot more shaking to it, and that animation is present in the tbogt files). I might also tweak that one and let people choose the one they like more (same with Uzi with the modified driveby).

 

Why they made Player & NPCs unequal is a mystery :D

Do you mean [email protected]_gun? If yes, I just tested it in-game. It's not the same animation from the console version. It's really unfinished, hence why it was left as "test_gun".

Nah, I mean gun_ak47. It's in the tbogt anim.img

Oh, I see. I thought that you were talking about some unused animation.

 

I didn't even realize that it had more shaking than that of GTA IV (and probably TLAD?). It unfortunately still has that delay issue, though.

I checked and it doesn't. Dunno about the rest of the tbogt anims. TLAD one is weird, because it's based on PC IV, but with the delay only removed when crouch firing lol.

They all do for some unknown reason. Not only for the episodic weapons, but even the default ones from GTA IV.

I think they did it because people on consoles with turbo controllers were a problem, using them to go full auto without the accuracy penalties. But with PC IV & TLAD they couldn't be bothered being consistent lol.

- Changed name from AI Firerate Fix to Improved Animations Pack;

- All weapons now shoot at full speed in driveby mode (not sure if 100% exact) with the exception of Assault Rifle driveby (NOOSE Annihilator gunners) which is slightly faster than default (blame the way this particular animation was made, and I guess it wouldn't make sense if they fired it full speed from that high anyway);

- Animations only present in DLC files added to IV (aim2holster which is probably only used by AI?, execute which is unused but still, and I dunno if any weapon had another one, so you don't need IV anim files in DLC anim.img on top);

- Assault Rifles & Street Sweeper now have a proper reload animation copied from the Sniper Rifles (no more reload by just doing a simple pull);
- Removed fire-rate multipliers from the Auto Pistol and Street Sweeper.

 

I'll do optional console animations another time (PC ones are better imo).

Amazing!

 

By the way, did you notice any in-game differences between the gun animations of GTA IV, TLAD and TBOGT? I'm not sure yet, but after checking out the animations in OpenIV once again it feels like they're exactly the same.

 

EDIT:

 

I just merged your new Uzi drive-by animation with the console animations (exported from TLAD).

Nice work!

But I found the new AK47's animation will make Niko raise the little fingers, can it be fixed?

Pistol and Deagle have slower driveby in TLAD, Uzi and SMG firing anims in TLAD are the console ones. The rest I haven't checked.

Probably not, unless it's a result of GIMS IV's optional animation optimization on export. I'll check when I end up messing with the console assault rifle animations.

Though I didn't notice anything weird.

Good point. I always thought that the reason they shoot slower in TLAD is because I'm shooting from bikes (which turns out to not be different from shooting from cars anyway), but this explains it.

 

I know about the Uzi's animations, but are there differences between the console and PC SMG firing animations, though?

Yeah, console one is more shake-y, like the Assault Rifle and UZI.

Yeah, that being said, I need to rework the assault rifle anims due to sh*t I haven't noticed before lol (wherever I got the no delay PC anim from, it's bad at the end of the aim loop + the finger thing I need to check out). I'll update it later today

Download updated. Due to the above mentioned issue, and since I don't know how to remove the firing delay off the original animation, I just opted for console animations instead for all automatic weapons (but I haven't bothered checking for any differences between pistols). The little finger is still raised for unknown reasons when moving while aimed, and I'm not really bothered by it. Should be the final version unless issues are found.

 

Side note: Helicopter gunner reloads are longer for some reason, can be tweaked via weaponinfo.xml probably (I haven't bothered changing it).

Also, I noticed that PC IV MP5 crouch reload doesn't make any sounds lol.

The console animations turned out to be more satisfying than I thought they're going to be. Makes shootings feel more intense and powerful.

It would be great to see a longer video demonstrating this mod, I'm not able to download for another week and I'm keen to see the differences :)

Doing this I noticed the Uzi driveby looks a bit faster than on foot (which means the PC one is a bit faster I guess lol) I might re-do it, check the MP5 and add in TLAD's shotgun anims to the pack (didn't check for differences) after I do another playthrough.

Was too lazy to record MP5 too :D

nah, I can't stop doing little changes in the middle of a playthrough
