GTA V Handling For IV 1.4

by Nixolas1
Please explain why you're reporting this file:

GTA V Handling, or V-Handling for short is a mod for IV/EFLC which will make all your vehicles take much better turns and brake faster, just like in GTA V!

You will never float away in the corners with this mod :)

NEW: Added crash damage to ped (so you lose health if you crash into a wall etc.). Fixed braking a bit.
OLD NEWS: Xbox control fixed. Added stuck on roof rolling (Press A/D to roll on wheels again)

Edit the ini file to suit your preferences, like cropper turns, faster braking or enable tap to reverse.
Press A+S+D at the same time to reload the ini file.

--- Install ---
*Place V-Handling.asi and VHandling.ini in your main GTA IV or EFLC directory (where EFLC.exe or GTA IV.exe is)
*If you dont have dsound.dll or scripthook.dll there from before, put those there aswell
*Modify the ini file to suit your needs
*Own the streets of Liberty City :)


Note: This is not a handling.dat mod, and has no "real" GTA V handling files. I have reconstructed the feeling by using scripting.

awesome mod man now i am just waiting for some gta v cars for gta iv

YES!!! Finally! I like the handling of GTA 5! Could you make GTA V vehicle deformation, like in GTA 5 if you crash your car at the first time, it is just a scratch or just a minimum deformation because in GTA 4, just 1 crash, your car is already deformed badly!

I have an ideea for a new script: In GTA V, when the player kills someone, something white will appear on screen, like getting photos in san andreas. Can you make this, please? 10/10

This is kind of sick joke ? Better make IV handling for V :D :D
Posted on October 9, 2013 8:18AM by Satyr15
GTA 5 handlings makes car stable not like GTA 4 which are boats, when you turn its like leaning already to the direction you are turning
Posted on October 9, 2013 8:27AM by gta4police
Nice, hope u'll share the hud radar too when finished :D

GTA V handling is really bad so thanks but no thanks ...

If you love it so much then why not make a video showing how great it is?

To me the car felt too loose.

GTA 4 Handling:Pretty Good.

GTA 5 Handling:Decent, But slippery. I'll pass
Posted on October 9, 2013 7:19PM by SonicIsKool
ok. i didnt rate yet, coz i want you to work on some things... this mod has lots of potential but you need to readjust the center of mass, and counter the weight with wheel traction, so this gives the true feeling of front engine rear wheel drive etc... i build very accurate data lines using IV data so i know this is possible. also... can i ask, why you made this when so many people use custom cars and personal setups for each vehicle?
Posted on October 9, 2013 8:40PM by twattyballs2011
at the bottom of the HANDLING.CFG there are more data lines, these are the base geometry data lines for, car, truck , bus, and so on...

maybe look into ONLY adjusting these properties, so this mod can be a BASFILE config, so when using custom cars and data, the effects are still present.
Posted on October 9, 2013 8:44PM by twattyballs2011
can someone convert GTAV cars to IV? :D
Posted on October 9, 2013 10:35PM by apixz
GTA V has HORRIBLE Handling!!!

Can you do V players a favor by offering them an IV Handling mod?
Posted on October 10, 2013 12:35AM by Adam121
Great to see that you're back, but... This??? What happened to the awesome/original scripts you used to make?
Posted on October 10, 2013 1:51AM by Beerminator1
I see there are some misconceptions to what this mod does. This is not a traditional "Handling.dat" file mod. It will not adjust any specific settings of any cars. It merely just does two things: making all cars make better turns by using coding/natives from the game to push the car inwards, and to make the car brake faster.

Both of these settings you can adjust in the ini so it is barely noticable, or SUPER strong.

I thought I'd name it GTA V Handling cause I was working on GTA V Themed mods, but I could as well have called it "SuperHandling" or something like that. Seems like I did a bad marketing decision ;)

@twattballs2011 thanks for the info, maybe I'll release a version 2 sometime with realistic force locations etc, but can't say when! Really busy :)
Posted on October 10, 2013 2:11AM by nixolas1
GTA V handling is crap.It was a step backwards.
Posted on October 10, 2013 2:53AM by Policefanatic

Looks good!
Posted on October 10, 2013 5:21AM by Solarix
lol, can you do the reverse, GTA IV handling for GTA V ^^ for my opinion the handling of GTA V is the only thing that is missing in GTA V :D
Posted on October 10, 2013 5:37AM by Tyler Durden
Fixed xbox controller bugs.
Posted on October 10, 2013 8:07AM by nixolas1
Could you make GTA 5 vehicle damage, scratches, deformation, regardless of the plating/armor because I want it even at the weakest plating in GTA 5, the car doesnt deform much, and only some scratches
Posted on October 10, 2013 8:39AM by gta4police
In my Opinion GTA V handling sucks big set back.
Posted on October 10, 2013 9:09AM by THED
Added stuck on roof rolling to wheels.

@gta4police, no, I can't do that in a script mod (Without advanced memory editing). To make less damage on collision, check the handling.dat file in your GTA, in:


Dc Dw Dd De

1.0 1.0 0.7 1.5

the first one is how much damage. set it to 0.2 or something.
Posted on October 10, 2013 9:11AM by nixolas1
We need IV handling to V...
Posted on October 10, 2013 9:47AM by Cosworth
After playing GTAV I doubt alot can be done as far as changing the handling to be like GTAIV. I don't even feel the transmissions in V's vehicles at all.
Posted on October 10, 2013 10:00AM by rastakilla
We need GTA V car in GTA IV
Posted on October 10, 2013 11:28AM by paulbellic
good job man
Posted on October 10, 2013 8:13PM by JulioNIB
It seems from videos V handling is much more arcady then IV. I had to make almost every car lean less, otherwise i like it much more then what i see in V. Planes will take off way to fast, it just looks they aimed for very easy vehicle controls so it's not in way of fast game progress. Hopefully we'll be able to mod it.
Posted on October 10, 2013 10:39PM by tall70
i have had a peek at some xbox gtaV data.. its very clsoe to IV date, with just a few more parameters... GTAV for PC is going to be a immense success :)
Posted on October 10, 2013 11:15PM by twattyballs2011

very nice

Posted on October 11, 2013 4:15PM by Cmoney

F*ck all who voted below 5/10! You didn't appreciated his work and how hard it is to make that, even that simple mod!
Posted on October 13, 2013 4:00AM by gta4police
well i cant download it. AVAST screams that there is suspicious file :(
Posted on October 13, 2013 4:38AM by Daniel96
agree, all 5/10 haters just sucks, if you don't like V handling go out here, this mod have a hardwork in the background and is very well done, deserve 10/10!!!

This deserve 10, great!
Posted on October 13, 2013 10:43AM by t-ru
Sorry, the handling gta 5 is very bad, why destroy the gta 4?

Rated: 1/10
Posted on October 14, 2013 5:17AM by louping0
louping0, you rated it 1/10 because you don't like the handling?

You should know better than that. I could rate A LOT of your cars 1/10 because I don't like them, but I don't. I rate them what they deserve based on how well the mod is put together.

In this case, Nixolas has changed the actual way the game understands handling as a whole. That is a huge undertaking and the first one I've seen done. You should respect that and not take a * on his mod with your 1/10 rating.

I guess every time one of your car's wheels goes through the concrete (i.e. every single one of your mods), we should just vote it 1/10.
Posted on October 14, 2013 6:12AM by MarkC9
My mods have defects

Here is the mod the default.

The mod took the only defect of GTA5

Destroy the superb dynamics gta 4 with this mod despite the work done is sacrilege

how to download this mod to pc
Posted on October 14, 2013 12:58PM by bugmenot
Updated to 1.4

New: Char damage on collision - lose health if you crash into stuff. You can modify or turn this of in INI.

Working on fixing the car's roll when turning, so it dosnt roll outwards while turning, but having some problems with different results depending on frame rate.

On a side note: this is the internet, haters gonna hate. I guess most of them havent tested the mod :)
Posted on October 14, 2013 5:31PM by nixolas1
Now, all i need is a GTA 5 Vehicle pack for GTA 4. Thanks for the Mod Nixolax =)

Posted on October 14, 2013 10:49PM by javid98

Posted on October 15, 2013 8:33PM by t4583t

GTA IV has really bad handling! Which is why R* changed it in the first place..

Sorry but I'd like to see you win a Race with more than 6 people in 1st place without wrecking your car and going fast with GTA IV's handling and no mods...
Posted on October 16, 2013 6:29PM by Quechus9
could you please make one just for breaking. this one we have to change all handling to have a good one.i change it before this mod that"s is good but breaking isn"t.if u can Separate breaking from another i"ll thank you.

Posted on October 17, 2013 5:12AM by m_loveing20

you can disable fast braking by setting it to a high number (over 9000) in the ini file, or changing the key to 0, also in the ini file.
Posted on October 19, 2013 5:48AM by nixolas1
I <3 it, it adds a lot of grip to the cars and you don't float away while turning, this mod going to be buggy cause all modded cars are different. sports cars feel like sports cars now & not boats, I Can now enjoy my pagani huayra & not crash it as often :D 10/10
Posted on October 19, 2013 6:52PM by trendymods07
dear nixolas1 :

thanks alot for your useful help.

Love it
Posted on October 23, 2013 1:58PM by TheNielegalnY
So what exactly does the script do to make the handling similar to V's while retaining the handling.dat for the cars?
Posted on October 23, 2013 5:52PM by cp1dell
Please make GTA V car deformation
Posted on November 2, 2013 11:34PM by gta4police
@gta4police : How?! I mean, he's a scripter, not a modeler! :D

@Nixolas : Cool, man, btw, GTA V's handling is better than GTA IV's, or, at least, that's what I think.

10/10, btw.
Posted on November 6, 2013 2:41AM by 123roach
@123roach : I mean the GTA V's amount or value of deformation in car when you bump or crash your car.

@Nixolas: Could you also make the GTA V car windows breakage where there are still remaining glass on the corners, not like GTA 4, where the whole car window is gone.

I would like to invite you to a project about total conversion mod about a player, member of the LCPD, please reply here or if you want to join
Posted on November 9, 2013 1:15AM by gta4police
after a while of using it it will crash the game. but i love this mod so much its amazing. can you fix it?
Posted on November 10, 2013 5:16PM by skelldoom87
how'd you get the radar?
Posted on November 12, 2013 11:34PM by -NocTurN-
Can you remove the crash damage? I find it really annoying.
Posted on November 23, 2013 1:42AM by sunnychiu
God this so much better than the default handling 10/10 anyone who can't tell the difference is high or stoned.

NOT COOL! try drive duke.. with not moodded. and try left right in fast speed. it look so unrealistic. u need to thourgh by handling dat :D 8/10 goood work!
Posted on January 16, 2014 7:50PM by MohdAzylee
ok, since im building gta5 models, i will look into this and see if i can create a accurate data line for a gta5 car to work in conjunction with this.. hopefully i will have some news on this in the next 48 hours... downloading again right now :)
Posted on February 7, 2014 6:39AM by twattyballs2011
Could you make it compatible with the GTA V cars and police cars being converted to IV? Because when I started driving a Declasse Granger (FBI) which is converted by SkylineGTRFreak, it always flips and suspension is bad
Posted on February 16, 2014 12:36AM by gta4police
great mod great idea with script work around instead of messing with handling.dat cookie for you.

got some bugs to report although I'm sure you'll already know:

Reversing problem. I understand it is to do with the braking but yeah it's bugs out a little haha

when turning the car rotates on a middle axis along z. It makes it look like a boat, not sure if that's due to the game engine too but yeah..

this mod is actually really good and I'm liking the driving a lot more :) Hopefully you will fix the little issues soon cos this mod is awesome

a reserved 10/10 for when the problems are fixed! :D
Posted on February 20, 2014 12:21AM by DRUZZRIN12296
Hey man, could you please remove the collision? Making it higher in the ini doesn't work like you said it would.
Posted on February 21, 2014 7:49AM by zildjian97
makes bikes act really weird when trying to drift them.. as if they have rocket boosters on the sides.

I know why its happening, and I understand if its isn't fixable, but at least let us choose in the .ini which vehicle types the mod affects.

Good, for V cars, not so good for other cars. I had one bug where collision * up.

Posted on April 19, 2014 9:23PM by Almercenary
what if I change or mod the Handling.dat? Is it still affecting?
Posted on April 24, 2014 2:16AM by saikoraito

I hate when games are simplified. It is like admitting that you suck instead of gaining SKILL! What R* did to GTA5 was admiting that players are to dumb to handle believable physics and what they achieved in GTA4 which is cool physics and car handling that was something between arcade/simulation and fun all that they upgraded in every GTA 3D but they thrown all that into trash and decided that they will make GTA series dumbed down and will create something as bad as Watch Dogs car behavior which is something below arcade. It is making car to behave even worse than in arcade games from old days. That is pathetic move but it shows that casuals overflooded game industry and now games are made for them and all who love believability and always wanted to see games evolving they are left to starve. I starve because of dumbing down games and this kind of mod is pathetic thing for pathetic players without true skill and learning ability with getting better at doing something. It is literally for dumb people as GTA5 car handling is and things like weapon reload speed that is unreal in terms of speed. Also shotgun is reloaded fully with one shell and is there outrage or negative comments? NO because casuals dont care and they love things to be easy. I hate such attitude because it makes games for me plain dumb and boring. I was bored by GTA5 at first freaking hour after experiencing car driving model and collision model. Those things that made me buy GTA4 in GTA5 are uberly f*** up and I will never buy that game or future GTA games because they are dumbed down and I will not tolerate dumb games. I will loudly criticize them even if I will be 1 between millions of dumb people. I fight with stupidity.

Rated: 1/10

This is the best handling fix for Eflc handling i've tried.

I've never played the game because the driving was so bad.

Now i can enjoy it ,thanks for a fantastic asi mod!

Now if u could do the same for Saints Row 2 :)
Posted on August 2, 2015 2:04PM by CHRIS LEE
It will never be 100% perfect as everyone has different ideas about what is good for driving.

But i hated the way the cars flew off like a tank on springs when u tried to turn a corner.

This mod is like a big hand clamping down and saying Nope! you're not gonna that this time :)

Now i can progress the story without ridiculous car movements.

GTA V inferior driving to IV? Instant 1 star, wish there was 0

Some rated 10, some even 1 or lower than 5. Which should I trust? :(

I even played GTA V in my old crappy computer, and I don't see much difference to it; all similar to vanilla GTA IV game. Wish there was realistic vehicle handling mod to it...

Hi guys. I just found this mod and it's just the thing I need! But, when I install it on the latest Steam version of EFLC the game just won't launch. When I delete it, it works fine. Is there any way of making the game work with this mod?

Thank you!
