Installed cars, now all cars are gone?

Ok so I installed noose.wtd and noose.wtf - imported them to vehicles.img, rebuilt, and saved. Didn't work...reinstalled the game and the cars where factory but I did it again doing it save, then rebuild and it didn't work either...

Any help?

Using sparkIV

Three things:
1. What version of GTA IV are you using?
2. What version of SparkIV are you using?
3. What mod are you trying to install? (provide a link, please)

How do I find out what version of GTA i'm using? It's a steam version, so it automatically updates to the latest I think.

Spark IV - "Spark IV 0.6.2.3(C)2008-2009, Aru"

Mod - http://www.gtainside.com/en/download...28602&orderBy=
As for the other site, I looked for one like it but I had to look on another site - sorry for post outside links.

Edit - i was using an older version of GTAIV.exe with sparkiv, maybe I should update sparkiv I guess

Could someone direct me the latest SparkIV?

Welp, not sure what to say - the mod doesn't require anything else besides changing the wtd and wtf files. It has a handling line too but I'm pretty sure that's optional. Try it out anyway.

I don't have the Steam version but I think it's the same as the regular version in that you don't need to do anything special to be able to install mods.

It does this when I install ANY cars, they all dissapear...

Is it like the following steps:

open vehicles.img
import new .wtf / .wtd
save
rebuild

or is it rebuild then save?

Ah yes, I had a similar issue, and the answer was not easily found.

Import the cars as usual

Note the file sizes before save

Save it

Close the program, re-open it

Note the file size changes again, if larger, then it is most likely a success.

rebuild

rinse/repeat.

Thanks, i'll try it right now. I'll edit the post to see if it works.

edit: Did as you said, the file changes got bigger, but once rebuilt and I launch the game cars are still gone.

Oh yes, I think I know why that is. Sometimes, some cars do not work no matter what you do. The thing I learned the hard way was, back things up and install cars one at a time. It is very time consuming, but is the safest way.

Yeah since I have steam version all I have to do is validate the files and it replaces them but yeah...i'll try some different cars and see.

I'll keep you posted if it works
