Watching said videos fueled my aspiration to learn how to install mods and I am very excited to begin replacing the police cruisers. Alas, the process of modding is an intricate and sometimes rigorous undertaking, so I presume, given the various programs and patches that must be applied before Grand Theft Auto: IV can be moddable. I will tell you, that I have made very valiant attempts to discern this process by myself. Granted, I have succumbed to stress and frustrations on multiple occassions, but even still I have learned which programs must be used, by conducting much research and referring to various GTA related websites for the information. Initially, I was perplexed with what progam I had to download and install in which to administer the mods. I learned that it has to be either 'SparkIV' or 'OpenIV'; I am running the latter. I currently have downloaded one mod, which is called the 'Unmarked FCVs Pack', an assortment of police cruisers. I have tried as much as I can, and I am now seeking all of the assistance that I can have so that I can get used to how the program operates and thus be able to install other police mods, which I definitely want to do. If I may, I would like to post the specific of my mod and explained what I have attempted to accomplished. Regrettably, I already am experiencing difficulties. I so apologize for my long post, but I am new to modding and I am not sure how to go about it. Please find my mod's 'ReadMe' file below.
I have attempted to add the police .wft and .wtd files provided by the modder and after selecting the file, I receive an application error prompt, stating that access is denied and the file cannot be opened. I have also downloaded the 'GTA4-Launcher' and patched the 'filelist.pak' file in the hopes that this would cancel the error. A second attempt to add the file yielded to the same result. Therefore, I am stumped in this regard. Additonally, I am trying to use the "iCEnhancer125' ENB mod and ELS, version 4, which is required for the lights and sirens of this particular mod. However, I tried running the game with the enhancer and I also receved another application error; I most likely did something wrong. As for ELS, it cannot be downloaded anywhere, so I have been told, therefore I added all of the 'ELS v4' files to my GTA: IV Directory. Again, I did not mean for such a long message, but I really would like to have my mod in game by sometime tonight. I have a very strong mindset with accomplishing something, and this has been on my mind for two days now. I welcome all help. Thank you very much.
