April 30th, 2018OpenIV 3.0

Today, we are releasing OpenIV 3.0 with some surprising features, please take a look:

What’s new in OpenIV 3.0

PlayStation 4 support

We are happy to announce new platform support for Grand Theft Auto V, please welcome PlayStation 4 (Orbis). We never actually thought this will be possible, but files for PS4 version of GTA V are available, so why not?

OpenIV

Features. As always in the beginning of the support for new game or platform, not all OpenIV features are available. As for now, we have basic support for Archives, Textures, Models, Collision Bounds, NavMeshes and Audio files. You can open all those files in inbuilt OpenIV tools, but there is no openFormats exporting or editing capabilities. Since PS4 have some specifics in GTA V RAGE Resources please consider this support as BETA and report any issues you may encounter. Please do not expect same level of features support as we have for PC version.

OpenIV

Files. You might also have question, where to get the PS4 game files. We cannot answer this question; this is something you need to figure out by yourself. You need to have game files on your PC. When you got the files, you also need decrypted version of eboot.bin, if you have the files you probably already know where to get it.

Vehicles animations

As our first step in GTA V Animations support, we added new feature for playing vehicles animations. In the model viewer if vehicle has animation you will see controls for playing it. You can play animation forwards and backwards.

OpenIV

We will continue our work on GTA V Animations support and you will see features like cutscenes player and openFormats support in the future.

Multichannel audio support

We added very important option into OpenIV settings. You now can configure how OpenIV plays multichannel audio. The new option “Multichannel audio playback” placed in the “Tools” tab and can have one of the following values:

Play multichannel audio in mono mode – OpenIV will mix all channels into one mono sound.
Play multichannel audio in stereo mode – OpenIV will mix channels into two channel stereo sound.
Play multichannel audio in multichannel mode – OpenIV will not mix any channels; this is how it worked before this update. Unfortunately, in most cases you will not hear anything expect for left and right audio channels. You probably will hear all sounds only if your system is capable of playing surround sound.

To provide the best experience for all users option is set to “Play multichannel audio in stereo mode” for default.

OpenIV

This option only affects audio playback in the OpenIV’s tools such as Audio Player and GTA IV Cutscene Player, the export functionality is not changed. OpenIV Audio Player is now also has ability to export multichannel audio in stereo or mono mode.

Grand Theft Auto V

• We added openFormats support for YVR resources in GTA V. Those files are prerecorded vehicles paths that are used in cut-scenes (and maybe scripts). It’s not big or heavily requested format, we added it just because it was easy and took only few minutes to do.
• We added support for new shaders in openFormats for GTA V models. Those shaders added in the latest game updates.
• We improved import process of .OXT openFormats for GTA V texts. It was processed keys with spaces incorrectly.
• We fixed an issue resulting in crash while importing partial carcols.ymt file from META/XML.
• We fixed an issue when edged faces rendered incorrectly for GTA V ped models with cloth geometries.
• We added new names for objects and models from latest updates. You will see normal names instead of hash values in ymap/ytyp files in the latest GTA V DLCs.
• We added many new names for audio tracks in GTA V. Animals, weapons, vehicles, DLCs, all kind of stuff.

Grand Theft Auto IV

• We fixed an issue when GTA IV Cutscene player was not able to animate scene without audio file.
• We fixed an issue when GTA IV Cutscene player did not load audio files for some episodes cutscenes. Those cutscenes uses audio files form original GTA IV audio archive.

Max Payne 3

General changes, improvements, and fixes

July 4th, 2017OpenIV Lives

In order to qualify all of the questions we had received during past weeks, we make some explanations:
Unfortunately, we were unable to answer those questions earlier due to real life (yeah we have some).

The community
First of all, we want to say “Thank you” to everyone who supported us in this tough situation. We’re very grateful for your support; for demonstration of the fact, that modding community is still a minority, but very vocal, creative and determined minority. You made the impossible and this story is already scribed into the history of PC gaming and the Internet itself.
Yes, this is your victory! Congratulations and many thanks once again!

OpenIV and modding
The development of OpenIV will be continued as before. OpenIV never supported GTA Online modding and will not support it in the future. Our work will be continued within the Rockstar modding policy.

Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto V
Unfortunately, our highly anticipated mod “Liberty City in GTA V” will not be released because it clearly contradicts with Rockstar modding policy. Liberty City mod is a big loss for us, since it was a huge part of our motivation to push OpenIV functionality.

If you are wondering what is next, well, we are currently revising our plans for the future.

Sincerely,
OpenIV Team.

June 14th, 2017Take Two vs. Modding

We feared that this day would come… And now it’s here.
The day, when GTA modding was declared illegal.

GTA modding had long and glorious history.
Since GTA III, people have created lots of different mods: from simple texture replacements to impressive full conversions.

And the modding always was a “gray zone” — a battlefield between lawyers and PR…

For almost ten years of OpenIV development, we had tried to play as nice as possible and even more:

  • Strictly following of Civil Code of Russia (only reverse engineering for interoperability).
  • Only clean-room reverse engineering.
  • No distribution of original data and code.
  • And absolutely no messing with Online…

 

On June 5th, 2017, we had received an official Cease-and-Desist letter.
It clearly says, that with OpenIV we “allow third parties to defeat security features of its software and modify that software in violation Take-Two’s rights“.
Yes, this letter is illiterate both technically and grammatically (really, they don’t even bothered with proof-reading the text).
Yes, we can go to court and yet again prove that modding is fair use and our actions are legal.
Yes, we could. But we decided not to.

Going to court will take at least few months of our time and huge amount of efforts, and, at best, we’ll get absolutely nothing.
Spending time just to restore status quo is really unproductive, and all the money in the world can’t compensate the loss of time.

So, we decided to agree with their claims and we’re stopping distribution of OpenIV.

It was a hard decision, but when any modding activity has been declared illegal, we can’t see any possibilities to continue this process,
unless top management of Take-Two company makes an official statement about modding, which can be used in court.

Discuss on GTAForums

With many thanks for all modding community for all your fantastic creations,
OpenIV team.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
