No problem. This mod made me play GTA IV again . After I completed the story and such, I didn't play again until now. In fact, I am replaying the whole game with the bodyguard(s) it's really cool. I'm trying to take 1 bodyguard from start till end of story, not dying (impossible, yes I know ).

I got some suggestions for maybe improving the mod, however I do not know if this is technically possible because I am not programmer .
My suggestions:
-Be able to give simple commands to your bodyguards like: move to place on map, follow, guard here, take/steal that car.
-When they can take/steal a car: they can follow you with there car.
-Blips on map, every bodyguard a blip.

Maybe some of my suggestions (if not all) are impossible, still I am quite sure if this is possible this will most likely please a lot of fans =), this way it feels more roleplay and fun to be able to lead your guards/enforcers (whatever ya call them).

the blips on the map per bodyguard are definitely possible, but im not so sure it would be a good thing for this mod, especially for people who like to spawn 40 guards (me!) i know there could be a keystroke for it, but im already pushing it on keystrokes. once i get a way to use dialogue boxes and all that, i'm probably going to make a sort of NPC spawner which will have a lot of character controls that aren't really suited for a "bodyguard mod." thanks for the suggestions though, and i'm glad youre enjoying the mod

That sounds nice . I guess if what I suggested was ever done in the future, it would indeed not just be a bodyguard mod anymore. More like a little "Niko Bellic" organisation with secret members who will obey anything he commands them to do .

Oh well, I'll see what comes out of this corner.. , I got a feeling the coming months will be filled with growing mods for GTA IV . Good luck.

The latest Public version is perfectly playable now.

I was able to do some of the most difficult missions in game just by spamming bodyguards and watching them take cover and kill the opposition.

I can execute or do anything i want and the guards will never try to attack me.

You can stand in a large space at 4 stars and your never going to be hit because the bodyguards are absolutely massacring the police.

Personally i always disable the godmode since it's more realistic and fun for me. I even noticed 2 of my guys took a car and drove to me, exited and opened fire on the police. Surprised me alot.

tl;dr

No issues to report so far, epic fun

here this is a great mod. But i find the cops are like your bodyguards. What i mean is that if you are going to a big shootout with alot of gang memebers in it. I would wait until the cops are close by when the other start shooting just sit back and let the cops take over.

I have done this in nearly every gun based mission in the game and its make things alot better and easy to complete. Without taking any damage at all or shooting a single gun

You have the liberty to have a personal army at your fingertips that won't give a shit if you shoot civilian or military.

This is one of the major breakpoints I'd take Rappo's mod over the 911 call.

i'm not going to do that no, it would be a terrible task. compmstr seems to want to do it though, so when i clean up the code he's apparently going to try it out

Actually, it will work in multiplayer. I had lots of fun on a private server with a friend. Basically, you gotta get invited by someone before going into singleplayer and accept that message, this way multiplayer will load (= first time loading), so it does work.
