I seriously can't wait to get a hold of that program, I feel like the developers are mocking us by having it working there and now but refusing to let people get it. I want it so I can take a ganders around the texture files to find some cool things.

Modding The GTA-IV on PC version,will be very funky!

Everyone is going to enjoy it!
For Example,replacing the INFERNUS instead a LAMBBORGHINI GALLARDO!

The mod is good. I would use it if i got my hands on it

But do you think modding gta iv on pc is going to be hard. Or will there be tools released by rockstar to help you out

We don't need Rockstars help to mod the game, GTA3 to San Andreas proves that, just like these guys, they've created a program which can read the file structure of GTA IV on the console versions and extract Texture and Data files all by themselves. As long as nothing major changes, then the structure should work for the PC version, once the export and import of files into the archives is sorted then all it's down to then is modding skill and making sure everything neatly matches.

That mod up there is a simple text based mod, they've extracted the car text data which contains how it acts and modded the value for it's weight and damage, made that certain car indestructable and weight a tonne whilst keeping the speed, same could be done via the Cheat Device on the PSP games.

Yes i know that. But do you think they would release tools to help you mod the game, Just like DMA did the Map editor for gta 2

1.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ash_735 is RIGHT.We don't need Rockstar helps.

There are many modders and scripters to build a pogram which can read GTA-IV formats for modding or changing main files.
For example Oleg the AUTHOR of Zmodeler.He made that program which with that we can convert other 3D model makers formats to GTA-Supported Formats or we can make a 3D model with the Zmodeler.In other words we don't have to be worry about GTA-IV modding because as fast as possible,after GTA-IV's Release,FAMOUS PROGRAMMERS(GGMM,ZMODELER.SAMI...)will start to make those programs for GTA-IV.

As Ash_735 said,they extracted vehicle's data and found out how to modding,they've made some changes for it,as things you know,they changed weight and damage of the car.

So,WE HAVE TO BE VERY HAPPY FOR THIS!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sorry for my bad ENGLISH

Hmmm...
Maybe they give us a program for changing the phone style or a RINGTONE MAKER or a THEME MAKER!

Everything is possible!
There is no impossible!

I think lots of 3D makers now,like "JVT DESIGNER",they are making their own mod for GTA-IV.
They also making the accident scenes for their car mods!

GTA-IV will be more more beautiful with MODS!

I've speak with GooD-NTS, who's making the program, and they've said it'll be released after IV's PC release...

BTW, I even made a Hungarian translation for the utility itself :D

10-03-2008, 05:43 AM
Yes,good information,I knew that!(The Tool's RELEASE)

Everyone now,they know when to use the program,so they won't search it untill GTA-IV's Release!


Thanks to "Alexander" for his powerful Tool!

Nope, they changed format structures after San Andreas, that's why LCS/VCS files took soo damn long to crack because it used a different archiving system.

V!RUS sent me messege and wanted me to post this:

You are wrong!W R O N G,WRONG!!!He was talking about IV,not lcs or vcs,read more carefully next time!

Ash_735
10-04-2008, 01:01 PM
Oh, so after making a new system they went back to the old one, right? Look at the history, old versions of IMGtool never worked off the bat with new GTA games they had to be tweaked slightly. LCS and VCS were the first games to change the the protection structure on the files making it impossible for IMGtool to read them no matter how much tweaking was done (eventually people created new programs to read these files and extract model and texture data fine), If this V!RUS wants to act like a jackass then let him post himself, unless he can prove to be that GTA IV uses the exact same method as previous GTA Games and IMGtool can open it then I will accept that I was wrong, but if he can't prove that, then, well, who's wrong then?

They only Released them for PSP...

Who gave me negative scores?WHO?
That user gave that negative scores,to 20th post and said to me: Don't be a tit please.
What do you mean?
Only Me and Ash_735 were talking about GTA-IV modding,so Ash_735 didn't got angry with that because he didn't care(Ash_735,always gave REAL REASON,ALWAYS)...

Why you can't believe me?Here,in GTAGAMING Forums,there is a user that anyone say to [HIM] V!RUS.
Do you know why people call him a V!RUS?Because he wanted to have some REP,so everywhere he says:REP ONLY or something like that(He said these to me that users call him V!RUS,I know he is not lier)...

If you take a look again in this topic you'll find him and you will find out I'm NOT A LIER...
I always told the TRUTH...

Why when you don't know about anything that happened here between me and Ash_735,you gave me the negative scores?Huh?WHY?

If you are a REAL MAN,post or send me your name,don't afraid to say your name...

You...You gave me -35 scores...

WHY YOU GAVE ME THAT?

HEY WHAT"S WRONG WITH YOU MF?

WHY YOU GIVVING ME NEGATIVE SCORES?

behzad_sol
10-06-2008, 12:35 PM
Those letters and numbers will use in game,for example mobile's texts
All games(but I'm not sure that all of the games can't read fonts) can't read fonts by their self,so game produters have to make them(Numbers and Letters)one by one and introduce them to game and write some scripts for reading these Numbers and Letters,so,after that you can see those letters and numbers in game,like wanted level symbol or subtitles in game...

It's the ingame text, as behzad said, all text is actually a static image mapped out dimension wise, when it is required to display a word it takes that one image and chops out the letters it needs and displays them in a row, think of it like Battleships or other grid based games.

ok so now i know that box edits game text

but will there be like a GXT Editor for it?

behzad_sol
10-07-2008, 05:27 AM
Yes,The GXT Editor's author will make one for GTA-IV,so you can change ingame TEXTS(Cheats name as you want!)...

As you saw in that Video,he changed the texts on the electric board on that theater(where he stoped his car and opens up his cell and burns some peds)

We can't download mods or instal them in game on consoles,we have to edit or mod the game first then burn it on a DVD(with the Xbox360 supported burning speed),so we have games which they modded or edited,this is the way I know about mods on consoles...
