GTA IV - Recoverer
Version: 1.3.0

About this program and how it works / how to use it:
After you have edited your GTA IV files, you start the game it it crashed. Then you realize that you forgot to make a backup. So, you now have to reinstall the full game! :(

This is the part, where this program can be used:

1. Select your GTAIV Directory / or a temp directory
2. Select your DVD-ROM Drive
3. Insert your GTAIV DVD #1 in your DVD-ROM Drive
4. Choose a file you want to recover
5. Click 'Recover' and wait a few seconds/minutes
6. The file has been overwritten and the game can be started (or modded) again

Hav a lot of fun ;).

You can create a GTA IV Recoverer Scriptfile to recover lots of files automatically. This is how it works:

1. Open your texteditor (notepad).
2. The first line begins always with a comment. This line is not read by the recoverer! You can write down whatever you want. If you don't want to enter a comment, just leave the first line blank.
3. The second and next lines are very important: Write down all the files you want to recover. Each line can only be used for one file!
4. Save your file as ".ivr" The .ivr extension is used by the GTA IV Recoverer.
5. You can open the script by clicking the "Open Script" Button in the GTA IV Recoverer

The Recoverer checks every line of your script and compares it to the filelist.
If the file can't be found, you get an information which line you have to check in your script.

There is an example file included: patch4_rollback.ivr
You can open this file in a texteditor to check or modify it.

- Don't use blank lines in your scriptfile
- You can use paths with a double-slash for example: common\text\american.gxt
- Always use the filenames. Don't use directories!
- Be sure, the last line of your script is not blank.
- The recovering of scripts with more than 100 lines can take up to 10 minutes

1.0.0: - public release

1.1.0: - code cleanup
- patch information added
- added patched files support (when you want to recover a file that is updated by one of the patches (1-3), you get a message. You can recover the file but you should install the latest patch again to update the file.)

1.2.0: - search option added (it's an "OR"-Search, so you can enter "gta4 melee paul" -> searches for "gta4", "melee" or "paul"). To search again, just click the search button again without changing the textbox. Or just enter the filename you want to search.

1.3.0: - cleanup
- scriptfile support added (see: p4_rollback.ivr and section "scriptfiles" above)
- patchfile information updated

ps: this mod is not created by me.

Or you could of made a copy of the game before installing it and get you'r files from that.Not say it a better idea but it was all i had but for the people who don't want to make a copy and have wasted space this is a very helpful and easy to use program.tested me self. =) 7/10
