Download Emergency Lighting System V8.0 (R01)


Author's Description


ELS 8 is the highly anticipated 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.

WARNING
- Please consult the ELS User Guide and other documentation provided prior to use.
- ELS V7 vehicle configuration files (VCFs) are not completely compatible with ELS V8. A conversion guide is provided in the documentation.
- Make sure to overwrite your existing AdvancedHook.dll file with the one provided in the download if the latter is newer (which it is at the release of ELS 8).
- You may need to download and install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redist. Package (found here: http://www.microsoft...ls.aspx?id=5555).
- You may need to download and install the Microsoft Visual C++ Redist. for Visual Studio 2012 Update 4 (found here: http://www.microsoft...s.aspx?id=30679).

KNOWN ISSUES
(The following issues have been catalogued 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.
- Coronas will sometimes clip through certain (shallow) vehicle parts.
- Repairing the vehicle may cause the user's ELS lights to remain steady and/or desynchronize for other players in MP--setting the system to LSTG3 and back to 0 once or twice should correct this issue.
- In multipalyer, repairing the vehicle may cause the user's ELS lights to desynchronize; 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 enablement 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.
- 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, SnH FireFighter, UndercoverChicken, and VooDoobie. The releases of ELS version 7 and subsequent iterations are in large part attributable to their invaluable feedback, suggestions, support, friendship, and above all, dedication.
