Nice. So now we can add helis and arm them to our liking?

Excellent modes. How to include the menu of a choice of helicopters? How to set up the weapon and to add new helicopters?

Отличный мод. Как включить меню выбора вертолетов? Как настроить оружие и добавлять новые вертолеты?

thanks man. I will reupload my helicopters with your heli script config when you released for final version
Posted on March 24, 2013 11:44PM by metalwars
Also,is the muzzleflash position of the guns and the position of rockets firing manual(by config) or automatic?
Posted on March 24, 2013 11:45PM by AgenBlaze
@NokaS: i will create an tutorial about that im my blog, its not complicated, enter in the helicopter (you can use scripthook console to spawn the model) and in the console window type the command: heliedit, then follow instructions on scrren to navigate and switch positions

@metalwars: i need to fix some issues that persists and add the Bomb feature, basically this is what i need to do, im thinking in set the bomb position to be fixed, what will be customizable is effect size of possible trace/trail

@AgenBlaze: all manual based in .ini config with ingame helper to set postions, i don't know if its possible to get those offsets automatically

helicopters were * to use from r*, video looks cool with ability to change camera for each weapon and use camera to aim, good job ;)

Dude this is sweet, you finally finished this mod. Thanks a trillion, now I finally have a reason to fly helicopters again. The only question I have is due to the fact I use Icenhancer with downsampling, the HUD on the AC130 mod does not work very well. Is there a way to get the HUD for this script and the AC130 mod script to work with the extra large resolution?
Posted on March 25, 2013 1:07AM by UnknownXXVII
I think it's possible since most modders like SkylineGTRFreak already made custom muzzleflash position(his OH-58D is the best example) so you can get it from the model itself. Adjusting manually is a pain in the *,believe me :/

Tip: You can embed resources into managed sources. So you don't have to put all the textures (pngs in "HeliFiles") in a seperate folder, but instead can load them dynamicly from the resources of the dll (Scripthook .Net even comes with a method to do that).

any word on ironman script when its gonna be released?
Posted on March 25, 2013 4:19AM by iAMl3dgend
now someone could create a marines wars with aircraft carriers (to be able to swim and fight) ;)

Great Mod

Posted on March 25, 2013 8:27AM by dragon20
able to support more than 2 helis? awesome work man :D 10000/10
Posted on March 25, 2013 9:30AM by fience25
i forgot, well, what if this mod merged with AC-IV too? so, we can choose either plane or heli.. all together in one menu.. hehe, i just saying..
Posted on March 25, 2013 9:34AM by fience25
It will be cool if you made a tank mod with working torrents and obviously a working canon with similar options to the BF3 tank mission or if possible a working red dot, acog, thermal scope mod for every gun you choose to use it with.
Posted on March 25, 2013 9:35AM by Alex54123
@Crosire: yes i know, but i like the idea to leave user able to change graphics/sounds used, this is why i dont add as resource, but thx for the tip.

@iAMl3dgend: i dont know, the script its done, now h1vltg3 its finishign the models, i will ask him if he have any possible release date

@fience25: im sorry man, AC-IV have 4800+ lines of code and this Heli Combat have 1800+ lines, so its very complicated mix them ^^, its not impossible but the possibility to bugs increase a lot, will require some weeks to make all work fine, maybe i do this when i finish this mod and some other requests

@Alex54123: i have an tank mod to do, will have custom HUD and cameras, minigun, TOW missile and balistic cannon
Posted on March 25, 2013 9:53AM by JulioNIB
man you should work with R* games... 10/10.....
Posted on March 25, 2013 10:08AM by georgg1996
@JulioNIB the mod with tank ;) ? this good idea man you should do this ;)
Posted on March 25, 2013 10:44AM by tosiek
Anyway to get the HUD for your mods to work with 3840x2160 resolution?
Posted on March 25, 2013 11:45AM by UnknownXXVII
One quick thing, is it possible to prevent police from using this? I think its a little overboard to attack somebody with missles when they have only 3 stars.
Posted on March 25, 2013 3:08PM by UnknownXXVII
@georgg1996: thats my dream ^^

@UnknownXXVII: mmm, i need to make some tests, i dont know if my pc will run at this res lol, but i will try ^^

The general ini file have an config to set if enemy heli will attack with cannons and/or rockets, but i will change some things like the amount of starts to start attacking, the AI aim system needs some improve too, i have a little list ^^
Posted on March 25, 2013 4:07PM by JulioNIB
You are awesome, dude! Love the mods 10/10

@NokaS, cool ^^, i will start the tank mod this week, i will reuse somethings from heli combat
Posted on March 26, 2013 9:48AM by JulioNIB
It was easy. I only changed couple of lines in.ini the file. Now I shoot small video about Hammer with rockets and a machine gun: )

Это было легко. Я всего лишь поменял пару строк в .ini файле.Сейчас снимаю маленькое видео про хаммер с ракетами и пулеметом:)

Prompt. How to create.IMG the file with helicopters as in AIR Combat mod? To add there are a lot of helicopters.

Подскажите.Как создать .IMG файл с вертолетами как в моде AIR Combat? Чтобы добавить туда много вертолетов.
Posted on March 28, 2013 11:23AM by NokaS
Another idea for the tank mod is a usable turrent for the humvee to that can movie and aim where you want.
Posted on March 28, 2013 7:16PM by Alex54123
@NokaS: inside folder \HeliFiles\Helicopters you put the image file, and in the .ini file you search for the config: img_file= and set it to the name of the image, for example: img_file=AH64.jpg

@Alex54123: you mean an remote controlled one? yes it will have it, cannon, missile launcher, "inside" camera, lock on feature and i will try to make it destroy cars when run over the cars, and we will have cop/enemy tanks too, i believe that will be very destructive ^^
Posted on March 28, 2013 8:32PM by JulioNIB
Great Mod Julio ! I'm hoping the next version has configurable keys in the ini though, default keys don't work well for me :( (However, I'm sure you'll be including this at some point anyway)

Also a bit like Alex's idea for the humvee, add an option for turret like cannon in heli, so you don't always shoot dead ahead (thinking the AH-6D Apache, which has this in real life, maybe others do too?) Naturally it isn't 360 degrees of movement, more like 70 degrees each way (Left/Right) from centred position and also downward movement, i.e. can shoot at ground when hovering.
Posted on March 28, 2013 9:29PM by Noesis
I asked not about the picture. Question how to make image archive with helicopters as airplanes in air combat. You understand? Precisely. How to make that a turret shot on 360 degrees in the helicopter?

Я спросил не про картинку.Вопрос как сделать image архив с вертолетами как самолеты в air combat. Понимаете? Точно.Как же сделать чтоб турель стреляла на 360 градусов в вертолете?
Posted on March 28, 2013 9:44PM by NokaS
By the way. I still stuck the weapon to the ships. It turned out badly. The ship shakes on waves and hits itself very often: (I can show video.

Кстати.Я еше прилепил оружие к кораблям.Получилось плохо.Корабль качаеться на волнах и подстреливает сам себя очень часто:( Могу видео показать.
Posted on March 28, 2013 9:50PM by NokaS
Today I tested Heli+AIR combat on the LAN network. Everything is bad. Game hangs up. Throws out the client. Continuous problems. It is possible to make that they would work on the LAN network?

Сегодня тестировал Heli+AIR combat по сети LAN. Все плохо. Зависает игра.Выкидывает клиента.Сплошные проблемы. Возможно сделать что бы они работали по сети LAN?
Posted on March 28, 2013 10:05PM by NokaS
@Noesis: i created this feture this week :), im finishing the tests and will release tomorrow probably, and with configurable keys

@NokaS: "By the way. I still stuck the weapon to the ships", you are trying to use this script with boats? i developed and tested to work with helicopters, i cant confirm that will work properly for cars/boats, about LAN, i dont have how to test ir right now
Posted on March 28, 2013 10:23PM by JulioNIB
Yes. I tested boats: ) Well and that they swim instead of shoot. Not order. Here also I attached to Military Patrol Boat and Russian Patrol Boat. The same machine gun, rockets, cameras. It turned out not so impressively. Finishing and adjustment is necessary. I am not able to write scripts. I don't know programming language.

Да.Я тестировал лодки:) Ну а что они плавают а не стреляют.Не порядок. Вот и приделал к Military Patrol Boat и Russian Patrol Boat. Все те же пулемет,ракеты,камеры. Получилось не очень впечатляюще.Необходима доработка и подгонка.Я не умею писать скрипты. Я не знаю язык програмирования.
Posted on March 28, 2013 11:16PM by NokaS
Nice mod, but it's possible to change the key of the spawn menu? I'm used to have F6 key for snt air break.
Posted on March 28, 2013 11:42PM by NFC94
next version (that i will release tomorrow) will have customizable keys :)

and nokas, yea, this script dont will work fine with boats
Posted on March 29, 2013 12:42AM by JulioNIB

Posted on March 29, 2013 12:41PM by NokaS
Not to bug you, but were you able to get the HUD working for the 3840x2160 resolution? If you are able to, could you do it for your AC130 mod, its my favorite mod and its hard to use with the aiming reticule in the bottom right hand side of the screen. Thanks for your time.

Posted on March 29, 2013 1:26PM by UnknownXXVII
what pc config you have to play in such small resolution? ^^

my gta not even open with this big numbers lol

i believe taht the problem is the method that im using to get game resolution, so i added an config that will let you choose your game resolution an override the auto detect, it will be in this new version that im uploading now.

after first start of this new version, you will see in the helicombat.ini file those configs:




set first one to 1 and the width and height to fit your game res:




then reload the game

tell me if it worked, so i acn apply same idea in other scripts and fix AC130
Posted on March 29, 2013 8:06PM by JulioNIB
The resolution comes from downsampling which is included in most enb modifications. The fix you have provided works about 95%. The only thing that didn't scale was the lock-on reticule. I did notice that when locked on to a target, sometimes the missiles would blow up underneath the helicopter without leaving. This happened to me and the police. Also, I don't know if this was intentional, but I am unable to shoot any weapon besides the minigun in night vision mode.

Thanks for the great mod, I really enjoy it, and for fixing the mod to work at such a weird resolution. Can't wait to try ac-130 mod again with this fix and your upcoming tank mod. You must be a very busy person!
Posted on March 30, 2013 1:10AM by UnknownXXVII
lol, yeah, i have an list here lol

this frozen rocket happens to me after a lot of reloadscripts when im developing, i reload the game and it is fixed, is a problem with gta, when too much objects are created, some just get frozen

so the HUD its almost ok? maybe if you change a little the values reducing like 10 points in each axis (width/height) you can fix it, can you post an image of the actual HUD?
Posted on March 30, 2013 1:46AM by JulioNIB
The HUD is working perfectly, its the little red circles you are using as a reticule that still don't display properly. The actual reticule for other guns is in the middle of the screen. This is probably just GTA's fault though, as it was never meant to be run at a resolution this high, but it looks sooo good. -- no jaggies, is what I'm after!

Thanks for updating the mod, as I'm sure my problem only constitutes for a minority of players. Random question: Does this work in LAN if my friend has the same mod? We want to try dogfighting, but ya know with helicopters like we used to in SR2.
Posted on March 30, 2013 2:18AM by UnknownXXVII
Why now the camera number 4 and 5 don't move in the right and in the left? I can't place them in the right place in the menu of settings. Whether awakes the Height indicator? Separate HUd for a machine gun from the first person (camera 4 and 5)? Whether it is possible to make zoom switching at a ganner. Three-fold or quadruple.

Почему теперь камера номер 4 и 5 не передвигаються в право и в лево? Я не могу разместить их в нужном месте в меню настроек. Будит ли Индикатор высоты? Отдельный HUd для пулемета от первого лица(камера 4 и 5)? Можно ли зделать переключение зума у ганнера.Трехкратное или четырехкратное.
Posted on March 30, 2013 2:25AM by NokaS
@UnknownXXVII. I tested game on LAN. v1.1. Doesn't work normally. The script on the client is disconnected. And game often hangs up. It isn't visible shots of a machine gun, rockets: (

@UnknownXXVII. Я тестировал игру по LAN. v1.1. Не работает нормально. Скрипт на клиенте отключаеться.И игра часто зависает. Не видно выстрелов пулемета,ракет:(
Posted on March 30, 2013 2:29AM by NokaS
@UnknownXXVII: you mean the 8 red points around locking/locked targets? this should work because its 3d, they are actually checkpoints with modified size :)

About LAN, i'm sorry, i can't test it so i don't know how to fix or what are the possible bugs.

@NokaS: i change the way this cameras will be positioned, you can rotate them with mouse and use numpad 8 and 2 to position it, i did this because i need to make player able to make sure that the camera it's close enough of the desired position
Posted on March 30, 2013 9:33AM by JulioNIB
Now Num 4 and Num 6 doesn't work. Therefore in settings doesn't move anything in left and in the right. It on cameras 4 and 5. Worked earlier. I put a line item of a ganner precisely on helicopter center. I had a machine gun on center in a bottom at the helicopter in front. And now it hangs far on the right in air. Why?

Сейчас не работает Num 4 и Num 6.Поэтому в настройках не передвигаеться ничего в лево и в право.Это на камерах 4 и 5. Раньше работало.Я ставил позицию ганнера точно по центру вертолета. Пулемет у меня был по центру в низу у вертолета спереди.А теперь он висит далеко справа в воздухе.Почему?
Posted on March 30, 2013 10:50AM by NokaS
I apologize. Me reached. Now means where the mouse there looks and the camera will move in case of setup. Earlier simply I moved clicking Num 4 and 6: )

Я извиняюсь.До меня дошло.Теперь значит куда смотрит мышь туда и будет двигаться камера при настройке.Раньше просто двигал нажимая Num 4 и 6:)
Posted on March 30, 2013 11:07AM by NokaS
Yes, the red points do not work at all. Like I said, its GTAs fault as even the yellow arrows that designate enterable buildings are far off from where they should be. I'm sure there is no way around this issue. However, it would still be nice to have the HUD for the ac130 to display properly so at least I know where I'm aiming even though the red dots won't work. There's always a compromise!

As for LAN, I'm guessing this mod will work the same as the AC130 mod, where it won't effect the other player even when both have it. Me and my friend have already used the AC130 together in LAN, and it doesn't affect eachother because we can't see anything, but it does work against peds and their cars.
Posted on March 30, 2013 12:31PM by UnknownXXVII
@NokaS: i limited the movement of the side gunner camera, to avoid player aiming againt his own helicopter, now when you reach limit it will turn the helicopter to help the aim, the same with turret camera (last one)

@UnknownXXVII: yuu play with what monitor to handle this resolution?
Posted on March 30, 2013 1:39PM by JulioNIB
I play on an LED-LCD HDTV. I'm guessing that you're not fully aware of how downsampling works. What it does, is it runs the game at a higher resolution, in this case 3840x2160, then squishes it back down to the native resolution which is 1920x1080. So basically with this higher resolution, the jaggies go away, but there are some bugs such as with 3D things like the yellow arrows that designate targets and what not. So your mod was reading the resolution correctly, but it was not able to squish it back down, and so in the ini configuration I put the resolution to 1920x1080 which fixed the HUD, but 3D markers won't work, which I believe is the games fault and most likely cannot be fixed. But thanks for helping, it was nice of you to fix the mod for a handful of people with my problem.
Posted on March 30, 2013 5:08PM by UnknownXXVII
I again with the BTR:) it is possible to synchronize a machine gun in the camera 5 with movement of a tower of BTR? Probably in case of machine gun movement or in left not to move BTR to the right? It is possible to attach the camera on a tower of BTR it isn't dependent on the casing? Thanks for attention!

Я опять со своим BTR:) Возможно синхронизировать пулемет в камере 5 с движением башни BTR? Возможно при движении пулемета в право или в лево не двигать сам BTR? Возможно приделать камеру на башню BTR не зависимо от корпуса? Спасибо за внимание!
Posted on March 30, 2013 5:57PM by NokaS
@UnknownXXVII: ok :)

@NokaS: i did not understood, what is BTR?
Posted on March 31, 2013 12:57PM by JulioNIB
BTR is an armored troop-carrier. In EFLC it is apc.
Posted on March 31, 2013 2:26PM by NokaS
Are you still going to do this fix on AC-130 mod?
Posted on March 31, 2013 2:39PM by UnknownXXVII
@NokaS: ah, now iunderstand, this will be in my tank mod

@UnknownXXVII: yes
Posted on March 31, 2013 5:06PM by JulioNIB
It's cool. We wait: ) I found the reason for which couldn't add a lot of technique in game. To add. Without replacing the standard.

P.S. By the way a new black hawk with arms super!

Отлично. Ждем:) Я нашол причину по которой не мог добавить много техники в игру. Именно добавить.Не заменяя стандартную.

P.S. Кстати новый черный ястреб с вооружением супер!

thx core.max :)

@UnknownXXVII: i released that AC-130 update, tell me if its working:

Posted on April 3, 2013 8:56PM by JulioNIB
Hello, Julio, you do amazing work :)

Does this mod work within the Video Editor? I never got Jet Combat to work for some reason, but this mod seems a bit simpler to execute, so I was wondering.
Posted on April 4, 2013 9:58AM by Vergessene
Hey, I tried it out, and the HUD is working again, thanks for fixing this. The only issue I have is that the projectiles don't always hit where the cross-hairs are pointed. It seems to worsen at farther distances, but it is not a big deal.
Posted on April 4, 2013 12:38PM by UnknownXXVII
Also, for the Helicopter Combat mod, I fully tested it on LAN. The problem comes in with the missles/rockets. When fired they get stuck in a 3 foot loop animation until they explode in 3 seconds. Me and my friend were together and both had the script activated. However, when his caught an error and stopped functioning, my mod was working again! Anyway, I just wanted to let you know what happens, not asking for a fix in any manner.
Posted on April 4, 2013 2:10PM by UnknownXXVII
@Vergessene: my last tryed worked ^^, i reinstalled my gta, Air combat still not working, but heli combat was fine last time that i tryed (v1.1)

@UnknownXXVII: good to know, now i will add this feature to all my mods that uses textures/draws on screen

The projectile issue can be result of time between shot and hit, plane is moving and we have an initial delay between click and shoot

I really dont have how to test it on LAN/Internet, im sorry
Posted on April 4, 2013 4:17PM by JulioNIB
Never heard this mod. 10/10

Compatible for EFLC?

Is it possible to configure the whole helicopters and helicopter mods to use this script?
Posted on April 16, 2013 1:41AM by Naruto 607
Before you can answer the compatibility question and config possibility, JulioNIB, I would like to ask you how to configure rocket position and other things for Bell UH-1Y Venom mod. You can get it here:


I'm not really good enough on editing the INI file. Any help or try helping me make one for it would be appreciated.

I dont know if im stupid, or if i did something wrong (or both) but when i try to add a custom heli (even just the ones included in the "more heli" file) it just says "erro creating helicopter..." what am i doing wrong?
