    Yo,


    I want to share some s*t i was doing while playing around with the ps3.rpf and common.rpf files on the BackUped Version of GTA IV. I recommend Back Up GTAIV on HDD for everyone, cuz u will boost ur modding options ..


    Why should i download this stuff?

    - Cuz GTA is 5 years old and this is something new and crazy on PS3.


    What you need for this stuff?

    - Back Up of GTA IV Disc version PS3


    How to BackUp Games with Multiman:

    Spoiler:


    Here is how i did BackUp Disc-->external HDSad Awesome (there are different ways i just show mine)

    - Get the latest Multiman pkg (jut google install)
    - Get the bdemu2.pkg (just google install)
    - Insert GTA IV disc
    - Start Multiman
    - Klick SQUARE on GTA IV icon in Multiman
    - Choose Copy
    - Copy the Game 2 an external hdd drive (if u use usb drive u will need 16GB)
    - wait the progress -2hours (note dont trust the calculated remain time by multiman its not that long)
    - Now ur game is on the external drive
    - Get the Disc out of the BD drive
    - insert a random Gamedisc (needed for the mirror)

    If u did everything right, u will now see the random Game above the GTA copied version in Multiman XMB (XMB: MENU)

    - Klick on the GTA-Copy with SQUARE (Now the Game Menu will show up)
    - choose Boot Options to EXTERNAL/BD MIRROR)
    - Start the Game with START Button
    - You will now be kicked to the ps3 XMB
    - The random Game u inserted is used as the BD Mirror and should be GTA IV now..

    Congrats, you just Backed Up GTA IV to an external device.


    Where to replace the files?

    Now that you did this, grab the modded ps3.rpf and the common.rpf and replace them on ur external device in:

    [-BackUp the originals first-]

    dev_usb(Place of BackUp)/GAMES/BLES(or BLUS)00229-[Grand Theft Auto IV]/PS3_GAME


    Aaight, just start the Game from Multiman and you will have the Mods running..


    Whats inside?

    Two versions, Flooded and non Flooded:

    - Added GTA V loading screens and Icon on XMB (by me)
    - Added Tsunami Mod from PC ( Credits to PlayRider13 YT)
    - Added Flooded City ( changed the water height PlayRider13 )
    - Added RealityIV 1.62 graphic mod -timecycle ( DKT70 from gta4-mods.com)
    - Added Heavy Rain Mod by increasing the particles 4x (+gtarainemitter mod by me)
    - Added NewestISH VII textures,colored Radio, lil pigs, Font ( Nativesith from psx-scene)
    - Added Skidmarks (by me)
    - Added new Starfield Space mod(by me)
    - Added Hancocks Moon texture ( from s7)
    - Added New Traffic Lights (by me)
    - Added Colored Guns and new colors for Menu (by me)
    - Added Green/Blue/Pink/Purpel/White Water (by me)
    - Added Surreality IV (Changed a bunch of Options in the timecyle.dat)
    - Added New HUD color (by me)
    - Added Lights on Cars (by me)
    - Added new Rain-Particle texture (Bigger drops for heavier rainy days, edited by me, original from PC snow mod)

    Can I play online with this?

    Its works online and you dont need to delete your save game for this. just change the files and play.

    Compatible with all Mod Menus of course..

    HOW to DO TSUNAMI?


    Quick Guide:

    Stand Still above the water level and watch the surface. DO nothn until u see the wave building up.

    Long Guide and experiences:
    Spoiler:

    If u play with the rules of ingame physics its animal style fun, if not you will lagg ur arse wound. I havent figured out everything but i recommend to first use this on singleplayer or private multiplayer to get a feelin for the waves and after this u can go riding your boat thru Liberty City, looking at all these poor peds swimming around and get punshed by the waves. lmao

    This mod changed the boundaries of water in the water.dat file. But i think there are more files needed to make this real stabile. It has a lot of bugs if u cross the places where the surface of the water hits the surface of the ground (same height). View Places like Time Square i.e are on that level and u will see the water disappear in ur view for a moment but not the physics of the water.

    If you die, it could happen that you spawn under the water. Look above you will see the surface. Spawn a boat to get up savely without any lag. Dont try car/slingshot!

    If you join a random game (u aint host) and u are under the water, spawn a boat again.

    If you Slingshot while under the water, you will have serious bugs/laggs!

    If you want TSUNAMI waves park ur boat and see what happens until a while.
    (Beware they will get realy huge! i recommend to turn god mode off and if they are to big and lag ur game just
    hit triangle alot to get out and u will die soon.)



    If you stand still to long, it sometime happen that the waves get to whereever u are and out of control. (look at pic 4)

    If you get Waves too uncontrollable, teleport ur character to higher places.

    If you dont want that shit anymore: Replace the common.rpf with the other one.


    word.


    BUGS:

    Loading time increased 20sec with black screen 10sec.

    Nice I like the credit part Smile.
    I mod online a lot lately doin data transfers from rebug 4.21 (spoofed to 4.31 w/ toolbox) to OFW 4.31. Workin w/ the 1.06 update I can say everything in the common is undo able. Ps3.rpf is all good to go. Disc only the update.img can be modded. With GTA IV Ultimate bought off PSN just aboot everything can be changed(w/ the exception of the common.edat).

    I copied my game (Original IV) to an external hdd and i cant confirm this cuz im able to change:

    - water.dat
    - visualsettings.dat
    - the rainemitter and stormemitter, rainrender and stormrender.xml
    - plants.dat
    - hud and hudcolor.dat

    in the common.rpf archive.. all other changes leads to loop the game for me.

    Looks like there are differences between every version out there... crazy. we should start a GTA IV PS3 Modding wiki and collect all our experiences and find outs Smile peace and thx for all ur pioneer work u did
