GTA Vice City for the PC questions

I want to add a few cars and bikes to my GTA Vice City for the PC.

How do I go about that?

I will really need a step by step with this one!

anyone?

thanks!

Here are a couple of links to get you started on the modding part...
1st Link 2nd Link 3rd Link

You can download a program called VCMM, and that will do the complete install of a mod for you...Or you can manually install a "mod" but you will need a txt editor (notepad), and a program called GTA IMG TOOL...
PLEASE MAKE BACK UPS!!!!

remember to read the readme.txt files, and if you need any help go ahead and ask..I have a 50 meg Zip file full of high quality cars...
just need a place to host it..or if your email account will accept a file that big I can send it..

Is there any draw back to using the VCMM that does all the work for you?
And where can I get a VCMM to do the Ducati 996 for me?

Once I learn this a little better then I would be interested in that Zip you have.

thanks!

Basically the only drawback is you trusting someone who wrote the script for the Car or Mod...If they knew what they were doing it should be easy as pie. If they didn't then it could crash your game...but it can be fixed by simply uninstalling it...VCMM makes a backup for what ever car you choose to overwrite..
I'm pretty sure you can get the 996 ( there is also a GSXR1k, R1, various other relatively old bikes around on the net..)

Here is a .VCM for the 996, After you DL it, unzip it, and read the instruction file.
Click Here

Also for "most" .vcm files you will need the Dmagic's Wheel Mod or something like that...Vice City Mod Manager can install that for you..It's already in it, when you install VCMM..

Please make backups of everything, most importantly these files..
carcols.dat
handling.cfg
default.dat
defualt.ide
and gta3.img(it's named that even though it's Vice City)

again if you have anymore questions just post em...
I have been doing this since GTA:3 came out for PC
I have Vice City installed and have NO original cars that came with the game..
And once you get "used" to modding the txt files, you can add or create your own custom colors to use for cars..

Great!
Thanks for the help!

I'll have to tackle this when I have more extra time.
So I will let you know how it goes when I do get a chance to dig in, and I am sure I will have a few questions along the way.

Thanks again.

no problem....

I had to do this, without anyone helping me, and basically said, " if i screw the game up I'll just reinstall it!" But NOW, it's a piece of cake..

Check your email, the link is in there, it will expire in 7 days, and it's a pretty fast too!

Click here

Make sure to always have the setup for it, somewhere, so you don't have to track it down, everytime you need to install it again..

OK, I downloaded your car zip.
downloaded the VCMM.
downloaded the 996 thing.
I clicked on the 996 thing and it said it is not a valid win32 application.

cut or copy the 996.vcm (or any .vcm file you wish to add into the game) and put it into
VCMM\mods\vcm (I don't know where YOU installed it, but it would look like this)
Now put the .vcm files in there..
Run VCMM
You SHOULD see the mods you put in...if everything was done correctly
The FIRST time you run it..
it will ask you where you installed Vice City
Locate it,
then click install on which ever mods you want to install..
Install one at a time..play vice city.make sure everything is okay..drive around and such..
(I recommend driving between the two cities, and make sure each of them load correctly)
then once you notice no problems..
exit, install another "mod" and repeat the process..
let me know if you have any further problems


EDIT: I didn't even notice this post was made at 4:20!!haha

an error has occerd durring this oppercation, instal logs will now be desplayed.

At the end of the logs is says:
Processing commands...
image_addfile( \models\gta3.img, sentinel.dff );
FATAL - Cannot open file D:\\models\gta3.img- Installation will now halt.
Generating Uninstall Info...
All Done


EDIT: it has given me this error for 3 diffrent things.
The dicati, gixxer and the S600...

EDIT#2: D:\\ is my cd drive...

Hmm....
What were you trying to add? or replace the sentinel with??
You can only replace the PCJ600 with the Ducati OR Gixxer...not both..
The S600 I think is a LIMO (I have to double check that), and can ONLY replace the Limo in Vice City...

Let me look into this further okay..

EDIT: When you installed it, did you choose FULL install? or Minimum?

I first tried the gixxer and it did not give me any choices but gave me a log error.. I played the game and the PCJ600 was still there. I then tried the Ducati and it did not give me any choices, but also gave me a log error.
I then tried the S600 and it gave me a list of choices to replace. I clicked the sentinel and it gave me a log error.

Thanks for all of your help.
I am on my way out to dinner, so I'll be back on later to see what you have come up with.

Do you think it is because it can not edit on the CD drive? I am playing the game off the CD...
