Exclamation **HELP MEH** GTA IV crashes on loading without any errors [Patch 1.0.7.0]

Hey fellas, this is the first time it has happened.

Here is a complete report of what I did prior to it:
  1. Installed the PKM from edsir98's MoH 2010 pack for the AK47 slot.
  2. Asked a friend for the TBOGT's M249 animation file (gun_m249.wad or something like that)
  3. Renamed it to gun_lmg.wad and added it to the anim.img with OpenIV
  4. Edited with notepad++ the WeaponInfo.xml file with the following for the AK47 line:
    • clipsize="100"
    • <anim group="gun@lmg">
  5. Launched GTA IV with LaunchGTAIV.exe, it is a legit version btw.
  6. Game loaded successfully but the .asi files didn't load (this shit happens all the time, it's pure luck if it starts the first time and the .asi scripts load)
  7. I exited and launched again
  8. This time the loading screen went all the way into Roman's artwork frame then it minimized and crashed without any beep and no errors at all.
  9. Reinstalled YAASIL and the trainer
  10. It didn't work.

All the .asi scripts I have are just 2, these are smoke.asi and the simple native trainer.

Any idea why this happens?

And please, I don't want to reinstall my GTA IV.

After adding did you remember to rebuild the archive?

I use OpenIV so rebulding is 100% automatic

BUMP

I really need help, is it something I did with the weaponinfo.xml or adding the gun@lmg.wad?

PLEASE HELP

Rebuilding is not automatic you have to rebuild it manually.

You have to rebuild archive you added the anim to.

Will do

Still doesn't work :C

Rockstar doesn't know how to do a proper PC port.

I pray that shit isn't like that with GTA V

Bump

Then I Don't know also trust me I Downloaded a weapon that was created for gta iv to replace M4 I Renamed it and replaced it with TBOGT M249 and the hand position was very bad. so I Recommend that you use GTA IV's own anims.
Also the weaponinfo.xml is a very very sensitive file if edit something wrong it could cause game crash.

I just added back the backups I had.

It wasn't the weaponinfo.xml nor the anims.

Something fucked up my game.

I'm greatly good enough at WeaponInfo modding, so I guess it might be the streaming control and IDE configuration.

I came across something and accidentally you said something in this thread that:

Here's the simple thingy you need.

You'll need to edit animgrp.dat with Notepad, find the Weapon Groups line and add this line under AK47 line below:
WeaponGroup( Streaming, gun@lmg )
Save and close.

Then edit default.ide with Notepad, find the w_ak47 line and replace it with this line below:
w_ak47, w_ak47, gun@lmg, 1, 50, 0
Save and close.

Make sure that you backed up your files like those two above before editing.
That would be work though, especially if you have Push's M249 SAW mod here if you like:

Hope it works on you.
