Emergency Lighting System IV V8.51


5 Screenshots

About This File

ELS-IV V8.5x is the latest update to one of the most popular mods ever created for a GTA title - enhancing all forms of emergency lighting in GTA IV.

NOTES
− ELS is a ".ASI" script mod.
− ELS will only work correctly when used with ELS-enabled vehicles.
− ELS V8 uses new powerful features made possible by the AdvancedHook Library System, created by LMS--read his blog article about it here.

IMPORTANT
− Please consult the ELS User Guide and other documentation provided prior to use.
ELS V8.5 VCFs and configuration files are compatible with ELS V8.51, and no adjustments are required.
− ELS V8.0 VCFs are compatible with ELS V8.5, however, in order to take advantage of some new features, slight adjustments are required.
− ELS V7.0 vehicle configuration files (VCFs) are not completely compatible with ELS V8.5. Aconversion guide is provided in the documentation.
− Always keep your AdvancedHook.dll up to date. If you already have a more recent version of the file installed, do not replace it with the one contained in the ELS download.
− You may need to download and install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redist. Package (found here).
− You may need to download and install the Microsoft Visual C++ Redist. for Visual Studio 2012 Update 4 (found here).
− You may need to download and install the Microsoft Visual C++ Redist. for Visual Studio 2013 (found here).

KNOWN ISSUES
− (The following issues have been cataloged during testing and are under watch. Updates will be made once permanent solutions are discovered.)
− The ELS lights on AI vehicles may sometimes be slow to turn off; increasing the values of the ClearRandAiExtrasXX options may help mitigate this issue.
− In multiplayer, the session host may be unable to see the ELS lights of other players' vehicles past a certain distance.
− In multiplayer, there is an issue where the user will hear a random ELS "beep" sound and this will be followed by a crash.
− In multipalyer, repairing the vehicle may cause the user's ELS lights to de-synchronize; setting the system to LSTG3 and back to 0 once or twice should correct this issue.

CREDITS AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
− ELS is coded by Lt.Caine.
− LMS, for his powerful AdvancedHook, the amazing features of which (including the vehicle damage system) ELS depends upon, in addition to his valued assistance with AdvancedHook, numerous contributions to the ELS code, his persistence with regard to the vehicle damage issue, and his very generous and invaluable work pertaining to ELS debugging and crash prevention;
− Sam, for his valued assistance and contributions to the ELS code, his powerful and professional public relations skills and work on behalf of ELS, as well as his persistent desire to lend a helping hand;
− PoliceWag, for his expert feedback, suggestions, and extremely dedicated help and patience, particularly in testing MP compatibility—he is the inspiration and motivation for ELS’ online features, and he worked tirelessly to ensure that these were up to standard;
− BxBugs123, for his dedicated help, feedback, and constant innovation with regard to ELS vehicle models (particularly the DRO lighting types).
− NicolaiB, for his unrelenting help and support throughout the testing process and, of course, for his awesome videos;
− Break, for his advice regarding German lighting patterns, his countless suggestions, and his instrumental assistance in weeding out issues;
− cp702, for his valued assistance in weeding out issues and, without whose persistence, ELS would not have supported added vehicle slots;
− Aru, AlexanderBlade, and HazardX, without whom coding for GTAIV would be impossible; and,
− the ELS users, who ultimately provide the motivation necessary to take upon such endeavors.
− The ELS testing team consisted of (in alphabetical order, except lead): PoliceWag (lead), bosco154, Break, BxBugs123, cp702, James, kjel0112, Mag292, NicolaiB, Sam, and SnH FireFighter.

I was trying to find a hallelujah song or something like that, but I couldn't find one so I'll have to do it myself: HALLELUJAH!

Here you go:

Just incredible. A massive thank you to Lt. Caine (and of course the others who were involved in this) for his work and contribution to the community.

Its like you've never heard of LCPDFR mod because all the controls are on top of the ones used in LCPDFR.

I can't use anything in this game and i Can't understand what any of the controls mean in the ini. its hopeless.

And i know my way around this kind of stuff im not a newbie. I've been modding for awhile. but this is just unuseable.

First of all..That is why the controls are configurable in the. ini file so you can change them by Yourself so that they dont overlap. And secondly, if you cant understand what any of it means its your problem...Caine wrote the whole 18 pages of the USER GUIDE for a good reason!!...

Just change the GTA controls in-game.. H is the default game button to turn the headlights on/off

Oh this is just brilliant. I highly recommend that you read the ELS Guide that Caine provided us with, or else youll just get confused about all those great new features.

Theres is a way. in the ELS folder where the "default_config" is scroll down to [ SECL ] and under that find where it says"DisableAtLstg3 = on" change that to "off" now when you get to stage 3 the secondarys should be off.

Awesome thanks

I'm having trouble as well. I can run GTA IV just fine but ELS doesn't seem to respond. I did set up everything correctly as I read the entire PDF. ELS v6 ran just fine so perhaps ELS v7 isn't compatible with Windows XP. That would be a real shame... Can anyone else confirm if ELS v7 is working on XP?
