How to Make GTA IV Moddable w/ Asi & Net
Some of you will say that GTA IV 18.104.22.168 is less popular than most other patches, but in my opinion, it is the most easiest patch to use in terms of finding the correct tools that are COMPATIBLE with the program. Just so everyone know, the programs mentioned in this tutorial are, of course, not created by me and the links of their inventions will be posted in this thread.For patches 22.214.171.124- 126.96.36.199, the requirements for installing is to just open the .exe file and accept/install the update. Links are here in order:
HOW TO PATCH GTA IV CORRECTLY

HOWEVER, for patches 188.8.131.52- 184.108.40.206 there's an updatetitle.exe, an updatetitle.msi, and a media1.cab in the whole patch. However all you have to do is just open the updatetitle.exe; the files around it are what it's going to use. ALSO, DO NOT DELETE THE COMPONENTS OF THE SOCIAL CLUB APPLICATION. THE GAME WON'T START WITHOUT IT.

-The purpose of this crack is to start GTA IV with no stops due to GTA IV's partial removal of its social club application. In addition, the crack provides some optimal support for the game. It also has a cool little animation whenever you open it DON'T WORRY TO ALL, I'VE USED ALL THESE LINKS, AND I GOT NO VIRUSES NADA.
How to Make your GTA IV 220.127.116.11 Moddable
First off, you will need xliveless by LISTENER. It will load asi files and allow modding of the GTA IV directory. This link is very legitimate and will not give you any viruses. To download, just look for "download now" at the bottom of the thread and click. Open the file whether it is zip or winrar and find xlive.dll and the src file. Copy the xlive.dll and paste it in the GTA IV folder that contains GTAIV.exe and LaunchGTAIV.exe (Commonly located in program files x86). Then open the src file and copy all the files within it and paste it in the same GTA IV folder.
Next, you will need .net scripthook v18.104.22.168 beta by Hazardx. Basically, it allows loading of .net files and provides the support needed for most other mods. Download the link that says "DOWNLOAD the GTAIV. NET SCRIPTHOOK HERE" and open. Copy the WHOLE folder, including the "scripts" folder (do not extract the files inside it, just the folder my friend), and place into the GTA IV directory containing the GTAIV.exe and LaunchGTAIV.exe (usually in program files x86). As a result, there should be a scripts folder, a scripthook.dll and a scripthookdotnet. asi inside the GTA IV directory.
These tools are what you will most likely need for loading scripts such as the Simple Native Trainer (not mine) and the LibertyCityInfection (not mine). If you are using a patch lower than 22.214.171.124., there is a higher chance of incompatibility with the tools you use. I hope this tutorial stops some of you guys from stressing out "why is my game crashing?!?!?!".
ADDITION: HOW TO INSTALL MODS CORRECTLY1. How to replace files without deleting the original ones.
Easy: Change the name of the file you want to replace such as LaunchGTA.exe to LaunchGTA.realexe. This way you don't replace the original file; easier than backing up.
2. Place .ini configuration files in the main GTA IV directory with the GTAIV.exe and LaunchGTAIV.exe.
3. If you want, you can create your own new folder for placing your trainers and mods to stop disorganization of your GTA IV Directory folder.
4. How to modify settings in GTAIV such as bloom or textures/physixs without using OpenIV and SparkIV.
Download notepad ++ from http://notepad-plus-plus.org/
With this just go to your file you want to adjust or change, rightclick it, and select "edit with notepad++". Make sure that when you save your new settings, make a "SAVE-AS" file to not replace the original file so that you can "backup" or rename the files to put into effect.
Thank you for reading this, and I target this thread to beginners who are searching in google for ways to mod GTAIV with correctiveness. I hope this helps you all, for I have tried really hard to make this as understandable as possible.I haven't found any recent, updated tutorials about this subject, so I am happy to oblige to creating this. Happy modding and the almost holidays!

Oh sorry about that dude. But my GTA IV is still working fine with mods. I am currently using Bleed and Heal, Realistic Driving and Flying, Military Vehicles/ Ped images, Grabscript, weaponndamage, and adjusted visual settings. Are you sure yours isn't working well? Do you have xliveless, scripthook.dll and scripthook.ini, scripthook.net and scripthookdotnet.ini? Make sure you include to copy everything in xliveless's src folder to your GTA IV directory. Btw, xliveless is supposed to allow modding of the game, but if it doesn't work for modding you should include the modified filelist.pak which you can find here... in the Realistic Driving n Flying winRAR archive: http://www.gta4-mods.com/misc/realis...lying-27-f9020 Don't forget to run as administrator on the LaunchGTAIV just incase, the launcher from Razor1911.

Imposible to install Scripthook on my PC
I don't know what is going on here!!!! i'm having a real headech! reinstalled 16 times GTAIV and no results! I have 126.96.36.199 patch and i can't get it to work ... how's that possible??? GTAIV crashes when i doubleclick on launch GTA IV.
Could be the Scripthookdotnet.Asi the cause of the problem. OF COURSE YES! I deleted and tadaaa, GTAIV is working again ... but here's a question. Will all the scripts work if i delete Scripthookdotnet.asi file????? if not, what else i can do to make it the god damn scriptwhatever.asi file to work???????
I have W7 admin by the way.

And if someone answers this then we might both have answers:
I didn't know about this before the latest install (and I'm kinda tired of reinstalling as it takes so long to re-download) so all I did was add the Simple Trainer 6.5.. and some skin mods (4 cars, a head and a heli)..
(I did follow the "make the game moddable guide on http://www.gtagaming.com/downloads/installation-help last time, before I installed the trainer and then it didn't work.. and honestly that guide seems WEAK)
..the thing is though; I cannot edit handling.dat for the modded vehicles w/o getting a game that crashes after loading. Is it because I didn't do any of this? I have version 188.8.131.52
Addition: Do I really need xlivelss? I use asiloader (dsound.dll) instead, as the Simple Trainer 6.5 installtion guide didn't make any difference of them all (I didn't use the yaasil one as it was restricted for online, and I don't like restrictions even though I don't use this game for multiplayer anymore)
