GTA IV Bodyguard Mod update

Grand Theft Auto IV - Modifications | @ 01:12 AM MDT | By rappo
Thanks to all those that downloaded and provided feedback on my GTA IV Bodyguard Mod, I'm now proud to present a big update to the mod! The controls got an overhaul to accomodate a lot of new features. Here's a list of updates in this version:
  • Discard all guards: once discarded, they will simply walk off and act as pedestrians. When they are far enough out of your view, they will disappear.
  • Change character model: there are about 340 models to choose from - everyone from Ricky Gervais to strippers!
  • Change weapon: choose which weapon you want your next guard to spawn with.
  • Toggle invincibility: spawn your next guard as invincible or mortal.

UPDATE: January 11 - Fixed bug (for the most part) where guards were sometimes idle during missions.
UPDATE: January 10 - I fixed a couple of bugs (involving discarding guards) that were crashing users' games. If you were experiencing problems, I suggest you redownload the mod!
  • Fixed bug where game would crash if you had too many dead guards
  • Fixed bug where guards turned on you or each other
  • Guards now get an MP5 no matter what other weapon you choose so that they can perform driveby's


All of these settings are applied on a per-guard basis, so you can mix and match them up as much as you like! All of the new controls are detailed in the ReadMe.

Thanks for downloading, and be sure to report any bugs you receive as they appear.

rappo I now love you, having a team or Ricky Gervais to kill when I want is brilliant! Also spawning these guys with RPGs ensures hilarity, note to other users, make sure YOU'RE invincible too, these guys really don't care where they fire these things! :P

i was really close to disabling the RPG - it is fucking ridiculous! i gave one to bernie and he shot up all of broker. if youre going to use an RPG, make sure to only have one guard or else he'll make everyone turn on him, making them pretty ineffective :p

but anyway, glad you guys enjoy it ;)

Great Mod though

Sure it's chaos, but funny at the same time, as long as you have some form of Invincibility going on you can just hang back and watch these guys work, as they run upto a Cop Car with an RPG, and at point blank range, aim the RPG at the hood of the car and just blast it away, they fall down but get back up like nothings happened, it's great.

yeah i'll admit - a stripper dueling with ricky gervais does make for some good video editor content

Nite: come on.. boobs, g-strings, and remingtons... what more could a guy ask for

rappo,
In 1 version of the fashion of "bots" were 2 types of weapons, can make the next version of the opportunity to choose the type 2?

P.s Nikita

Thanks for the mod , it is the reason i joined the site. Anyway I am having problems , the bodyguards do not actually inflict any damage on those who are shooting at me in missions. Sometimes they do not even fire.

The mission is called concrete jungle. I notice outside of the mission that they can kill cops , but in the mission Jamaican Heat the enemies took tons of shots from the BG but no damage and when I shot the enemy is when the enemy life started to drain. Also in concrete jungle they kill jacob and not the other men. Thanks for your help and quick reply.

no problem! thanks for the bug report. okay so i looked into it. it happened because i assign a specific "relationship ID" to the guards so that the game knows they're all part of your group. unforunately that mission (and many others) use the same relationship ID. what i did was change the ID to a more uncommon one so that the guards should work in most (hopefully all?) the missions. i uploaded the fixed version, you can redownload it here: http://www.gtagaming.com/downloads/gta-iv/script-mods/1950 let me know if you encounter anymore problems :)

he he awesome. It's great fun going on police chases with your favorite in-game character

Also, could you add 'Fists' as a weapon? You don't always need a gun to kill someone...

I am new at this forum and new with these mods. How can I activate a mod in GTA4? I downloaded this mod ( http://www.gtagaming.com/downloads/gta-iv/script-mods/1950 ) and I needed a ASI loader. So I downloaded this file ( http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=380830 ). And from that point on, I dont get it.

Where is this vorbisfile.dll in the GTA4 map? ( So I can replace it)

How can I activate the downloaded Bodyguard mod?

Please help, and thank you for the support!

It would be awesome if you had more guards than free seats in your car, they would steal the nearest car and follow you.

DutchForce: download and install Alice and then put the GUards.asi in your root GTA folder (so Rockstar GamesGTA IV)

Nikita and lnaitsirhc: I don't know about having the guards stealing their own cars - I can look to see if it's possible but Im not sure. Right now the guards act like one of you friends when you're on an activity, their behavior (programmed by Rockstar Games) is to follow you.

Thanks rappo for the update. I have experienced two bugs might just be my game.
1. when the BG's are in the car and you go to pick up a friend the friend stands there and does not get into the car,
2. I am still experiencing the bodyguards not being able to kill anyone during missions.

Thanks for the updates.

i can't even begin to describe how much fun I'm having raining death upon liberty city with my 1337 army of hipster chicks. lol

my only issue i had was crashing when i tried to dismiss too many guards at once, but I'm grabbing the update, so I suppose that fixes things :).

Love the mod, bro!

yeah, because you need an ASI loader, which requires the gta iv patch

Update : It seems when I spawn the bodyguards with invincibility when they shoot a enemy nothing happens , but if I spawn them with invincibility off they can actually kill the enemies. This is only a factor when spawning them with missions as outside of story missions they can kill enemies.

What's the most guards we can have? I think the limit for my computer is somewhere around 50. I've found that once I reach a certain point of excessive body guards, the game does one of two things:

1) crash
2) the body guards stop being peds and turn into uninteractable floating walls of sort.

It's not a biggy because, really, I was going overboard with the guards to see if there was a limit.

I get a kick out of spawning mass quantities of RPG holding guards off a building, watch them hit the ground and let off random missles everywhere. lol

Well in the program, I put a hard stop on 400 guards, but I'm not sure anybody's computer, or maybe even the game itself, would handle that many :p

After using the mod for a while it seems that it is not that they can not kill during missions , but they can not kill targets during missions.(Enemies with indicators above their head)Also would it be possible to change the default weapon given to bodyguards from MP5 to a episodic weapon.

hi there! just to say that i found a bug.
when you have for example 3 bodyguards, and someone calls you, for example roman to go drink with him. if you enter a car with 4 doors, and let the guards come in too. when you go to pick up roman, and then you sound the horn, he wont move, and you will not be able to get out of the car and you cant do anything. you have to load the game again.
