Interesting topic. I'm mainly curious about the removal of anti-debugging. My installation, while I'm not even into trying to use a trainer, has been a little unstable. Crashed twice since I installed it tonight and it very quickly runs my PC out of virtual memory, forcing me to restart. A hassle, especially considering the time it takes to start the game back up.
So I wonder if allowing the debugging to occur might stabilize the game a bit or even improve performance a little.
On this specific topic, I have another inquiry, but for that I shall post my own thread.
Aru released 18.104.22.168 of his ScriptHook. I can say that every ASI loader is back to working. . Also for people wondering: Alexander Blade released a new version of an ASI loader. Don't use the old one! Should be the same link, but I am a bit lazy to confirm.
Also note that mods do not work on multiplayer free mode private matches anymore. The person that made the C++ hook disabled any capability for it so it is not up to modders now.
UPDATE: I take it back, he only took out the code that lets scripts run in multiplayer as well. Modders have already reincorporated it into their trainers...smart.
Can someone explain to me, step by step what I'm supposed to do? I tried it with the info given, downloaded the control center and a asi loader, but my game keeps crashing, when I delete the files again, I get a fatal error..
So what do I need to do to get the GTA IV Simple Native Trainer to work?
download a asi loader or something; but do i need to delete something in my game directory? (I saw something of deleting, but I didn't understand it)
then run it?
I really have no idea..
Sorry for the trouble, but I would really like to use some sort of trainer for it
Sorry for a late reply. I can very well explain it to you. I figured my "Guide" was very direct for newbies.
The general consensus is that GFWL has anti-cheat measures and most of all anti-debugging measures per game. These "ASI loaders" go past that. Some use "xlive wrapper" some use "asi loader"
The thing you need to know as a newbie is that XLIVE wrapper is used if u want to use someone else's save game AS YOUR OWN....where GFWL sees it as you legitimately played the game...but you did not
So to do that...you use a XLive Wrapper...load a save under your games for windows live Profile...and then save it. GFWL changes all the properties and binds that save to YOUR PC. Then you can remove XLive Wrapper.
Now that you know how to "mod" your game so you can make anyone's save file your OWN....you need to know how to get GOOD mods/cheats working . That's where ASI Loader comes in.
A major difference is ASI Loaders (make sure you read my guide until you understand) do not disable Online Multiplayer for Grand Theft Auto IV. Xlive wrapper does. Xlive wrapper is also used as an ASI loader...but not many use it if they want to play online.
What you need to know is this...every 'mod' for GTA IV has one of two requirements:
ASI Loader or Xlive wrapper.
Read the mod topic and see what it needs. Usually the installation is simple . Download either ASI or Xlive wrapper...drag to your GTA IV directory...and just drag the mod file (it's one file for mod most of the time) into your GTA IV directory too. Then you can use the instructions on how to "activate" the mod in-game and you will have successfully learned to use them.
no, you dont delete anything for the native simple trainer, just dl what it says to and extract it to the gta 4 game directory, you can then mess around with the trainers options in its config.in file. he doesnt keep that page very organized I know, but its pretty simple to do. he updates it almost ever week, so its pretty cool.
