First GTA IV mods arise
 
A couple members over at GTAForums have created applications that inject into GTA IV's launcher and keep it from checking whether or not the game has been modified before launch. Right now his launcher only works with the Steam version (I tried it on my retail copy and it didn't work, others on the forums experienced the same issues). Somewhere on the third page of the thread another guy released an app saying it works with other copies, but I don't have time to test it out right now. If anybody's interested you can find it here: http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=379452

So far they've created some weapon and handling mods, which are basically done by changing a few text documents. It's nothing major yet, but it's pretty exciting how quickly this was accomplished, and I don't doubt that we can expect some awesome mods within a month. Here's a video of his weapon mod (powerful shotguns, and pistols acting as rocket launchers):

If it's really that simple, maybe Niko's health can be increased to a point where he takes little to no damage from explosions and falls.

There's some discussion about that. Like in past GTA games, the health is most likely a part of the mission scripting (main.scm for old games, not sure about GTA IV). It was never really a part of one of those .dat and .ide files. Mission scripting seems a little out of the scope at the moment, but I don't doubt that it'll come up soon. The memory addresses are already being documented, and those are the things that trainers can modify.

Sweet, let's hope they create a mod so the game doesn't require Social Club or any of that extra crap.

that looks like a morph of the glock and the RPG into one weapon which is cool

I'm not very well educated on what you can do with mods but if people start modding new properties and stuff into the game then I'll probabily buy the pc version.

Although these mods do look fun they arent enough to make me buy the game.

Hah, literally with the multiplayer zombie character models and skins already in the game :)

Simple, but pretty cool mod. I want to see a nuke (gun?) mod like there is for Garry's Mod, for example. Huge explosions in LC with awesome graphics and Euphoria physics= freaking cool.

Well before the Social Club was down, which meant it was having a fir starting the game and would only run in Safe Mode looking worse than ever. I bought the game legally, why should I have to get bogged down with this crap?

Funny thing, people pay for this game and get bad performance on the lowest of settings and have constant problems with WLM and the Social Club.

A cracked version only needs 2 clicks or 1 and no bullshit. Don't except multiplayer soon, LAN works fine for now.

Also heard that you can easily use multiplayer if you use a Live account from a different game or something.

Is every single person having problems with this game. I have had it sweet up to this point. I wonder if it is to sweet

Every thing is running sweet. But Maybe i am getting ahead of myself and thinking i am a lucking person. I-guess mine will fail but the question is when

zeeshan810 12-05-2008 05:49 PM

That;s a Funny Video
