Introducing GInput

GTAGaming.com - Modifications | @ 09:30 PM MDT | By Ash_735


We know it's a hassle to go back to the older Grand Theft Auto games on PC these days with their lack of controller support, on screen prompts, etc, but thankfully, you don't have to worry about that anymore! Here's GInput, a plug-in for Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on PC which gives the games full XInput Controller support, as well as additional support for DualShock 3 and 4 (that's right, even SIXAXIS controls for these titles is an option!). This plug-in is easy to install, basically drag & drop for the III/VC version, and the SA version requires an ASI Loader. After that you have a load of controller options in the INI that you can tweak with to get things just right for you, whether you want the original PS2 style control set up or if you want to try the modern "IV" style controls to get a more fresh up to date experience with these games. You can even choose which button style to display between Xbox and PlayStation! Here's a list of features this modification has and supports:
- Complete XInput support, so pads are mapped to match console versions perfectly (including Start button, which can't be mapped on PC version without this modification).

- Proper vibration support - something that was cut from all PC versions of the game!

- FIVE (TWO in San Andreas) different control mappings - four setups matching PS2 selectable setups and fifth one being a recreation of GTA IV controls!

- Pad buttons in In-Game helps, replacing PC key names (depending on user's choice, either PlayStation or XBOX buttons are shown).

- An INI file with tons of options - including toggleable vibration, selecting controls setup, Invert Look option from console versions, axis inversion options from San Andreas and more!

- Automatic switching between keyboard & mouse and pad controls, basing on last device input.

- Support for Guide/PS button. The button is fully functional and can show your Steam Overlay menu if you launched the game via Steam!

- Cheats input from the pad. Use classic PS2 cheats on PC!

- Full co-op support in San Andreas - the game can make full use of two pads or bind the first pad to second player, so co-op can be played even if only one pad is connected

- Increased support for DualShock 3 controllers and SCP Driver Package - including pressure sensitive buttons and SIXAXIS accelerometers

Head on over to GTAGarage to Download! Check below for some screenshots and even a video of it in action:

Grand Theft Auto V PC Delayed AGAIN, Heists Coming March 10th

Grand Theft Auto V - General News | @ 09:25 AM MDT | By Ash_735
In what's becoming a running joke amongst the community, Grand Theft Auto V has been delayed yet again on PC, with a new release date now being April 14th (anyone want to take bets when the next delay comes?), as a weak apology to PC gamers Rockstar will be offering anyone who's pre-ordered the game an additional worthless $200,000 in Grand Theft Auto Online.

On the flip side, HEISTS finally have a release date, set as March 10th, hopefully they meet the target on this one as the long awaited other running joke might finally come to an end!

Classic HQ Palm Mod by Jestic

GTA: San Andreas - Modifications | @ 04:30 PM MDT | By Ash_735
It has been a while since we've posted any mods on the frontpage but this one caught my eye and really does add something to the classic Grand Theft Auto games. Here we have a mod for both Vice City and San Andreas which replaces the generic palm tree model and texture with a higher poly 3D model and higher resolution texture of the original image. What makes this stand out compared to other palm tree mods is how this one has been made to stay as close as possible to the original design so it fits in well with the games art style, it's worth checking out. You can grab the mod from GTAGarage or from the Jestic's original thread over on GTAForums. Here are a couple of screenshots from the San Andreas version:
