GTA IV - Spark IV (0.63a) - File Description  

  NOTE: This file has become outdated and there's a newer / better version available.
  You can still get this file but we suggest you have a look at the NEW / UPDATED VERSION first!

Installation Instructions: 10

Overall Rating: 10

Here is the "IMG Tool" of GTA IV as such, this will allow you to install the mods into the game. This is also a very powerful tool for GTA 4, with this you will be able to look at texture files, sound files and infact almost any part of GTA IV and have the ability to export almost anything including the models, textures and scripting withing the main game itself. This is probably one of the most powerful and best tools that you can have for GTA IV.

It should be noted that this program is a beta version, so it may have some bugs but it does work with the latest version of GTA IV (and all of the previous versions). As always it is highly recommended that you back up all of your files before you install any modifications. You will also need to use XLiveless or any similar tool to install and use any of the Modifications in GTA IV.

- Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5. If SparkIV does not run, you need to download and install this from here.
- Version 1.0, 1.01 or 1.02 of GTAIV.exe. This is required for the cryptographic keys.

Resource Files
Exported Resource files will be exported as-is and compressed. To extract the data segments out of the resource file, a tool called Resoursaur (yes, creative... aren't I? smile.gif) is available in versions of Spark 0.5.4 and older (download available at the Google code link). This tool will be quite useful to those wishing to explore the resource file formats in a hex editor.

Legal Issues
A cryptographic encryption key is required for running SparkIV. For legal reasons (DMCA/EUCD/etc), this key is not included in SparkIV but rather extracted from GTAIV.exe on startup. So, you will need a supported version of GTAIV installed, or have a GTAIV.exe placed in the same directory as SparkIV.
