GTA File Assistant 0.3

Please explain why you're reporting this file:

This program helps you backup and restore your GTA4 mod files. i am new to and GTA4 modding so don't expect this program to be brilliant. it is currently in the earliest stage possible but I will continue to work on it. please report any bugs (there will be a lot) and tell me what you think.

To install, place in GTA directory with the LaunchGTAIV, or LaunchEFLC, does not modify save games. you should use this with a fresh install as it copies the original files as the backup, theres no use in having it if the backed up copies are the same as the modded ones.


backup and restore the files used when modding (files from the files.txt)

detect differences between the backup and the file you have modded, to tell you if it has been damaged or not restored correctly
(only works if the 2 files have different file sizes!)

modifies the file.txt to use your backed-up files

Drag-and-drop files to the program to remember them as a custom backup

a handling.dat and weaponinfo.xml editor - kind of useless

Tabs (Yay!)

a .asi mod manager and a .net script manager

the ability to have multiple backups, and delete all backups

simple mod downloader

Any other suggestions are welcome.

Known Bugs:

the program always says there are files missing, when there aren't. - fixed by deleting this message from the code all together

Sorry but, you expect people to run an executable file on their precious ENB installations with hundreds of hours of saves and game time without a description of bugs, features and a more thorough breakdown of what exactly the program is doing?


you should update the description bro.

should I make it use the files from the "MagicPatcher" (or another patcher) so people don't have to reinstall the game?, and is that better 2TimesACharm? :) (the description)

Magic is outdated.

I Didn't know that, thats how new I am to this lol :)

I will change that tonight.

I am planning to remove the down-loaders as one doesn't work and they are pointless. (will also remove the as well :) )
