Hi TAP2,

What you need to do is read the .txt file, once RealGTA3 has installed a .txt Doco come's up and in this it will tell you how to get the mod working 100% correctly.

As a pointer read below:-
Taken from the .txt file

=======================
2. INSTALLATION PART II - YOU'RE NOT FINISHED WITH THE INSTALLATION YET!
=======================

Please follow this guide to complete the installation:
1. Delete the files "txd.img" and "txd.dir" from GTA3's "models" directory
2. Go to GTA3's "audio" directory and run "audext.exe" and wait few moments util program end
3. Move all files from "audio\newsound" folder to "audio" folder (promt overwriting!)
4. Run "audimp.exe" and wait until program end
5. Run the gta3.exe and enjoy my RealGTA3 mod:-)!!!


Follow the above and the Mod will be the best mod you will ever see on GTA3.

A Question to all AlamDV people:

I am looking into something and would like some feed back.

I am looking into changing some of the poster's within the Real GTA3 mod, one's that I have given thought about are as follow's:

AlamDV Poster - with the web site address at the bottom.
Newer Film poster's - sugestion's please

I would need a place to upload the mod, but do not know the size as of yet, is anyone willing to help me out with this?

Let me know what you think please.

Spike cool

Spike, I really like making mods

- Perhaps we could get in contact with the makers of this mod and ask if we could design all the posters and things???

- Or make an unofficial modification for their mod

I WILL HELP YOU OUT - PROMISE biggrin

Ok, ill just test this mod now

Just like that, TAP2 did you download the blood patch? Because it's a must twisted

And did you know that we can shoot while driving (cause me I didn't redface ) Just press 1 and 0 or 2 and 0

this is a good way to start a race : find someone who has the same car as you (or a better one) and shoot him, he will start a race with you biggrin

If you know any other trick you tell me smile

1. No the F-16 cannot fire missiles sad which would be a cool thing cool

2. I upload them on www.freeservers.com (but it was just a question of time before they block the link confused )

3. the blood patch (the patch was actually part of the game but they took it off because of the kids and all...) http://users.swing.be/sw335732/blood.zip

4. The cars keep getting better and better when you get to the 2nd and 3rd city biggrin

Trust me when I say that Vice is going to be so sweet on the PC, the PS2 version is a blast and now with the PC version coming closer - the Graphic's are going to blow us all away.

The PS2's graphic's where amazing to watch, the PC's are going to be pure eye candy.

yes its gonna kick ass

but for the "real mod" it totally make the game more easy (for the first town)

I played in the first town and without the mod all the cars were not good except the mafia car. Now the triad car goes very fast eek

Tips :

1.If you're still in the first town and search for the best car : in the mafia town there is a car shop, break the glass and you will have a lamborghini cool (it wasn't that good without the mod)

2. If you only have 1 or 2 bullets left in your gun and you don't have time to reload because you're in the middle of a fight, just change gun and reselect your gun, it will be reload wink

If you dl the Pug 205 GTi, this will replace the lamborghini, the GTi is 10x's better.

Also on the 1st Island, there is a job for joie, where you must take the car to the crusher, to get rid of a dead body in the boot, in the Real mod, there is a real dead body in the boot, in the normal version, it's just a empty boot and that's it.

The real dead body is beat up and bent up like a good'en - really funny when the boot come's off and you see him looking out. lol

How to fly the F-16 : (even me have some difficulties)

1.Press 6 and press W until the nose touch the ground

2. Release 6 but continue to press W

3. Wait one second then press 6 to stabilize the plane

4. Alway stabilize the F-16

5. Never press 9 even if you go down

It will take time to go up, but it will wink and press W when the F-16 go down, nothing else.

Good Luck razz

What prog did you use, Bob, to capture the pic's from within GTA3?

Ok, I got a prog and edited this post, it's called DAB's (Dump As Bipmap), but can save the pic as a Jpeg as well and work's really well.

All I need is a place to dump the pic and then everyone can see what I have done - but need a place to up load it without having to pay for the service sad
