Agent99 is on a distinguished roadAgent99 is on a distinguished roadAgent99 is on a distinguished road
Please help me. I'm soo lost...

I bought GTA4 and have the disks and everything.

I used to play this on my pc a while back. Like a year ago. I modded the handling.dat and had fun and lol'd all the time. Then I must have gotten bored and deleted it.

But wait, now I'm interested again. Bought a new 1gb vid card. Reinstalled game.

Used my trusty old handling editor and started the game. But the mother fuc*er wouldnt start.

Then I read how it wont start with modded files. Well crap.

I'm stuck. I reinstalled and can play a stock game fine. But how do I edit handling and play? I understand I have to make it "moddable" but how the hell do I do that??

PLZ help.
THX

Rockstar made allot of changes over the various patches that altered the games "modability" and many tutorials (even on this site) are often out of date with the latest patch. Update then see where you stand...

Just in case

I have a txt file titled "files" in the Grand Theft Auto IV directory so that maybe what you're looking for.

With the latest patch you no longer have to enabled modding. All you generally need is Spark or OpenIV (which I personally use)

I wish I had your internet speed >8(

What does spark do and can you provide a link?

OpenIV basically lets you crack up the files and edit or replace anything you want such as car models and textures. Usualy a must have for modding...

Hmm maybe this is from one of my mods or OpenIV or something

May I see this tutorial or whatever it is asking you for this? It may be out of date or something...

Now that I'm up to date, the game looks much more familiar like it did a yr ago. I dl'd your link and I'll try it out.

You sure that link you provided is right? This software looks like something a corperation made..

nevermind, you're right

It says read only mode? and where do I edit car stuff?
