Grand Theft Auto IV (GTA IV) Modifications for PS3 CFW Arrive

Sponsored Links
166w ago - Following suit with the previous Mortal Kombat PS3 mods, today EvilB and nativesith have made available some Grand Theft Auto IV (GTA IV) modifications for PS3 CFW users.

Download: Grand Theft Auto IV PS3 Mod (NewestISH) / Grand Theft Auto IV PS3 Mod (EvilB's Airport) (use the queens_e.img)

To quote: Found the source of many problems with Ps3 GTA IV mods. Problems like freezing on the Dardan mission, and even the X and Dwanye selection(even more problems..). IDE or Item Definitions Entries. The vehicle.ide, ped.ide and any ide of the common.rpf can not be changed.

An update of the 8th release with a new importing (EFLC to IV). The last import job caused problems with the skylift and buzzard. Evil B showed up outta nowhere with mods that are unlike anyone else's (like the no cops at airport and the 360 port of casino's car placement at the airport).

jdmalex played around with the script on the 8th making a few improvement on that. I did the first playerped modding with the Niko/Luis and Niko/Johnny. Lets not forget the first EFLC mod with ICe La GLACE's (another friend of mine) Ice 1.2. Any texture modding done now can not be done without Dageron's Console Texture Editor who is a friend of Pavel. He is the man!

What's Included in NewestISH:

  • New Loading Sexy Screens
  • Pause Menu with Old English Font
  • New HUD
  • Exotic Cars and Bikes Take No Damage
  • Screen goes Red and Black when Niko Dies.
  • Many PC textures imported to Ps3!
  • Reality IV Visual PC Mod
  • Niko has new Clothes & Beard!!
  • Highlighted Weapon Icons
  • In Car as one of Camera modes
  • No Cops at Airport (EvilB's)
  • No Non-Colored Radio Icons
  • My Handling Settings
  • Latest Importing W/ No Helis or Boats!
  • BloodyFX!!
  • Colored Blips!
  • This mod will not freeze at Dardan Mission , Please let me know if it freezes on you.
  • Meant to be used with Evil B's qeens_e.img (The Evil Blunt Airport!)

Installation Instructions:

  • Common and Ps3.rpf go in BLUS30127/Ps3_Game/USRDIR/
  • Vehicle and weapon.img go in BLUS30127/PS3_Game/USRDIR/ps3/models/cdimages

NewestISH vII: This is just like the NewestISH!!! w/ 2 major differences:

1) New loading screens that have artwork and no hot girls.
2) Niko w/ no facial hair!

This is for those who want the NewestISH minus the hotness x2!! This will not work with a complete anything! Put the ps3.rpf in BLUS30127/PS3_GAME/USRDIR

Day two of the NewestISH will include my BIK videos. They are BEP Rock your Body and a New Looney Tunes entitled "Off Duty Cop". Whenever Niko wants he can watch some updated TV!

From nativesith: Yawn, good morning everyone and good day to all. Thanks Evil, JDMalex and Pavel, thanks for all your help. Noticed some have a problem with the cool n sexy loading screens lol really.

Not just here, NewestISH threads are popping up all over. If one was a follower of mine one would've noticed my whole theme of Cool N Sexy even before the NewestISH was released. I also did not make the photos or take the pics (wish I did though mmm lol), most of the pics are a PC port. Perhaps one of the others could make a more GTA IV friendly (lol) verison for "all the lil girlie men" (my Arnold impression").

Day 2 of The NewestISH will feature BIK videos. Blacked Eyed Peas "Rock your Body" and a New Looney Tunes episode entitled "Off Duty Cop". Now Niko can watch some real TV lol. I will post with instructions in a bit.

CNT nativesiths's NewestISH.

Save and replace back in common.rpf rebuild and your ready to play, just place your common ps3 rpfs back in PS3_GAME\USDIR no need to clear game install data when editing .rpfs

Note some map imports aint compatible with each other like Da420driftteam map mods and the roads to heaven v3 will cause random freezing when loaded together, try not to have both maps mods lines in the gta.dat

Did you extract the vehicle.img and convert to the PS3 format ? when i said you can port every mod from the computer version, i mean you can but you need to adapt for the PS3 and it start with the engine default setting of the PS3

Well I tried importing two mods from the PC version to the PS3 version without success. I tried the vehicle.img mod but that doesn't work since the files inside .img file are different formats so it just got stuck on the loading screen, I also tried a iPhone 4 mod but that also made it get stuck on the loading screen.

You can port every mod from the computer version to the PS3 but you need to keep the engine default setting for the PS3.

I can't seem to find the common.rpf in the game update. But gotta try to find it again when I get back home.

Well if the 1.06 patch/update contains a new common.rpf file you can just delete it and use the modded one. Game updates are stored in dev_hdd0/game/(GAME ID).
