Host The Img And Dir
Posted 17 July 2004 - 03:44 AM
I think someone should honestly host the IMG and DIR for others to download with working cars and all already there ready to go. I have heard a few did this but can't find it. It is a damn good idea and would help so many people wanting these mods. It may be a large download but it is possible.
Someone could have a few organized downloads, listing which cars and mods are in each download.

Some mods do work, i couldn't get em working at 1st,
I've got the Lamborghini Diablo, Warthog and Suzuki Escudo Pikes Peak from ThE MaSTeR 3's site [LINK] And a Skyline from somewhere in my game at the moment, ive also got skin mods and other texture mods, Burnout mod for tires, 3 new bridges, a tunnel mod, and that odies beach mod or named summat like that, and did have a the metal sphere for riding bikes around in, but didnt work with beach mod, New Vice City 2004,and also use Ko_gars multi mod,and have tried other cars that have worked. check you've done everything right coz i thought i had, but i'd missed one thing. I missed out the Dmagic1_Wheel_Mod_V.3 stuff so thats why my cars wasn't working. so just got over everything and double check!

*Make new, clean rip of Vice City to your hard drive
*Delete all saved games (back em up first)
*Download the Lamborghini Diablo (just for testing) from masters site and unzip it
*FTP over you GTA3.IMG & GTA3.DIR
*Use IMG Tool and open ur GTA3.IMG and delete Infernus.dff and Infernus.txd
*Add the ones from the zip file, no need to edit em or anything, coz they have already been done
*FTP the GTA3.IMG and GTA3.DIR back to your xbox
*Delete the GTA_VC.CAP.Final file
That shud get the car in the game,but its only the model of the car in the game,
*Edit the Carcols.dat, Default.ide and Handling.cfg according to the readme that was in the Lamborghini_Diablo.zip
*Download the Dmagic wheel mod (From masters site) and follow the readme to add that mod. (If youv'e followed the readme from the Lamborghini_Diablo.zip exactly you need this mod!!! or will freeze the game!!!)
if you ran the game before to just test the model wivout the rest, Delete the GTA_VC.CAP.Final file again (just incase it does affect it) and run vice city.
this should work, this is what i did and it worked fine, i did have trouble at 1st but things work fine after doing exactly as mentioned above. so it should work for you! just try it on a clean rip of vice city/delete saves.
Another note, if you do get this to work, you may want to store a few of the modded cars in the garage and then edit the Default.IDE again AFTER you have stored and saved the cars in a garage and change it from
141, infernus, infernus, car, INFERNUS, INFERNS, null, executive, 7, 6, 0, 249, 0.75
change it to
141, infernus, infernus, car, INFERNUS, INFERNS, null, ignore, 7, 6, 0, 249, 0.75
if you change executive to ignore, it stops the cars from spawing in the road, so they only in your garage or at specific spawn points, otherwise you get lots of lag

Check to see if your gta3.img file is the correct size. I was ripping mine with Hddloader and it wouldn't rip the whole file. It would stop at around 160mb and skip to the next file. but see I didn't know until I watched it rip one day. I then had to rip it from the original disc through the xbox to my pc to get the right size file. Then after all the drama, it worked. That MIGHT be your prob. But if not, hope you get it workin!
