GTA IV Bodyguard Mod v0.2

Grand Theft Auto IV - Modifications | @ 05:57 PM MDT | By rappo
NOTE: apologies to those that downloaded v0.1. The script was created incorrectly and didn't allow most people to run it. It should be fine now, so download away!

With the recent release of aru's C++ Script Hook, I've had an easier time making higher level mods for GTA IV. Throughout the day I've been working on a new one that I thought some of you would enjoy:

GTA IV Bodyguard Mod v0.2

Right now, this script allows you to spawn bodyguards in-game by pressing F7. These guards all come wielding an M4 rifle, and they're ready to use it. Anybody that begins to attack you, such as police officers, will get taken down by these guards. These invincible guards with great accuracy will also be your enemies' top targets.

In this version of the script, the guards' character models are all the same, and they all have the same weapon, but future versions will hopefully allow the user to choose how to spawn guards. This version was more of a test for myself, but it worked pretty nicely so I figured I should share.

To make the script run, all you have to do is download and install an ASI Loader like Alice or XLiveless. Enjoy, and stay tuned for some more updates!

A few things that i noticed:

During the Mission: That Special Someone

- The Bodyguards went into a Panic state and actually ran away when i stopped the car. Kind of like if you stole a vehicle with someone still in the passenger seat.

- Spawned a Extra 3 after that and went to Pickup Roman, unfortunately Roman didn't want to even move or turn from his spot. And the game automatically figured he entered the car. I could hear roman speak in Subtitles and Niko respond back even if he was 50 miles away. Unfortunately the game didn't show the next Waypoint after that so i had to repeat with spot for him.

A "Vaporize" option for the Bodyguards would be nice in a situation like this


During a Police Pursuit i decided to enter a Clucking Bell and fortify myself inside from the police. I spawned a couple of guys for extra backup.

- They didn't respond as usual by taking out their weapon. They just stood there looking at the window

- They didn't want to move with me

- I tried to fire off a round into the wall, and they automatically all took out their M4's and fired at me, i was dead so fast the Health + Armour bar dissipated completely in a instant.

- Aiming at these types of bodyguards also means your going to be killed and hunted down. Considering they can't be killed and can follow you anywhere on foot, your going to die sooner or later.

Thanks Xan, I'll have to look into some fixes for those. I thought I covered the guards shooting you = instant death by not allowing them to damage Niko, but I guess that function isn't working. The lack of proper documentation makes it a little tough :P And vaporizing all guards is something I want to do as well. Hopefully in the next version!
