About This File

 

 

Ever miss the LCPDFR computer? The one with the user-friendly realistic interface? LSPDFR Computer+ aims to bring that back.

LSPDFR Computer+ is open-source! Check out the git.

 

Looking for the Ped and Vehicle Images? Click Download,  select Additional_ComputerPlusImageAssets.zip and extract the contents to your root folder

 

Features

  • Ability to search for persons and vehicles without keys conflicting with other mods.
  • Ability to request backup using a nice looking interface.
  • Uses the LSPDFR API to get ped and vehicle information. Also includes info left out of the regular LSPDFR police computer, like times stopped, number of citations, and a vehicle's stolen status.
  • Uses the Traffic Policer API (if it is installed) to also show a vehicle's insurance information.
  • Search fields are automatically filled out with the subject's information during a traffic stop, so all you have to do is press a button!
  • Dynamic backgrounds! Depending on which police vehicle you're in, you'll get a specialized department background. Comes with RDE support.
  • Looks practically identical to the LCPDFR computer (in terms of the layout).
  • Active Calls screen, which shows all callouts sent by Dispatch, even the ones that AI units respond to! (Must have participating callout plugins installed for this to work)
  • Computer+ has its own API, for callout developers to use!!
  • Computer+ will automatically add LSPDFR+ court case when you create an arrest report. (LSPDFR+ by @Albo1125 is required).
  • Computer+ now have ability to create citation for stopped ped on foot. After stopping a ped (by holding E key) or using "Stop The Ped", you may open Computer+ and create a citation for the ped. Make sure you have the latest "CitationDefinitions.xml" in place which has a public citation category. After it's created, return to the ped and give the citation to the ped (default key: LControlKey + PgUp).
  • You may open Computer+ as a tablet while on foot. (default key: LControlKey + NumPad0)

 

Installation
Place ComputerPlus.dll, ComputerPlus.ini and the ComputerPlus folder in Plugins\LSPDFR\.
LSPDFR will automatically load Computer+ when you go on duty.

 

Usage
While in a stationary police vehicle, hold E or the Right D-Pad button to bring up Computer+.

 

Configuration
If you open the ComputerPlus.ini file, you will notice a few things.
You can change the username and/or password that is displayed on the login screen to anything you want.
You can also adjust which backgrounds are shown for which vehicles.
To give an additional police vehicle a background, simply add another entry in the format vehiclename:bgfile.jpg
ENSURE THAT THE VEHICLE YOU'RE ADDING IS A POLICE VEHICLE AND THE BACKGROUND FILE IS IN .JPG FORMAT.

 

Developers
Keep an eye on the Computer+ Developers Wiki, over at -- https://github.com/PieRGud/ComputerPlus/wiki
If callout developers need any help integrating their plugins, you can contact @BejoIjo@ainesophaur or @PieRGud on the LSPDFR Developers Discord server (link is in the API forums)

 

Additional Info
Computer+ does not replace the default LSPDFR computer.
So, if you don't always want to use Computer+ during your patrols, then you need not worry - the default computer is still there.

 

Known Issues

  • Your cursor is frozen in the middle or does not move
    • Pause GTA (if you cannot, unload LSPDFR)
    • Go to Settings
      • Keyboard / Mouse
      • Mouse Input Method
        • Set to "Raw Input"
  • Your cursor does not appear
    • ... make sure the display resolution in game matches your windows display resolution. If the resolutions do not match, you will not see a mouse cursor
    • If you have multiple monitors, make sure GTA's Graphic Settings have the same "Output Monitor" set as the same monitor set as your windows primary monitor. Example, if you have three monitors and your left monitor is your primary windows monitor, make sure GTA's Output Monitor is set to the left monitor -- if GTA isn't set to the same primary monitor as windows, you will not see a mouse
  • GTA5 freezes / drops to 1fps while computer+ is open..
    • ...after you alt+tabbed out of the game..
      • If you plan to alt tab out of the game, play in windows boardless
      • Try to untick the option to draw the background before leaving the game screen. Until there is a way to detect if the game has focus, this seems to be the only solution
    • ...after you opened the Rage console
      • Don't do that.. seems to be an issue with Rage's handling of form events and the console key presses
    • ....after you pressed the escape key
      • Don't do that... Rage forms do not like the escape key pressed multiple times

 

Support
If you experience a bug, crash, or you just have a question/concern, please post in the Computer+ topic.

!!!!! VERY IMPORTANT NOTES !!!!!

If your game is crashing when opening ped or vehicle information window, please be informed that GTA V has very limited memory allocation for plugins which tends to crash your game when you have too many plugins installed. To prevent crashing, please try the followings:

  • Download and install a good "gameconfig.xml" which might  increase memory space for plugins. We recommend the one created by "dilapidated"
  • Reduce your mods and plugins by disabling them one by one until your game is stable => !!!! Especially reduce a few "RagePluginHook" plugins in "GTA V\Plugins\" folder !!!!
  • If your game is still crashing, try to disable Computer+ components:
    • Disable ped image by setting the flag in the .ini file (set DisplayPedImage=false)
    • Disable vehicle image by setting the flag in the .ini file (set DisplayVehicleImage=false)
    • Disable random history report generator in the .ini file (set RandomHistoryReport=false)

Looking great so far, splendid job!

I've found 3 minor things:

  • The "Hold E to open LSPDFR Computer+" help message displays every time I get in a vehicle or come to a slight stop. Could you limit this to once per game session, or while a traffic stop is active only?
  • This is just a side note, I'm not sure if you've done this (didn't see it in the ReadMe), but I thought I'd mention there's a "Vehicle.IsStolen" property in the RAGE API. If you haven't done it yet, adding support for this would be great!
  • When I searched for the driver's name during a traffic stop, and subsequently searched for the vehicle plate, I got this (When looping through the World peds, try sorting them on distance to the player and display the closest one accordingly, some peds may get the same names):

Other than this, excellent work! Nostalgia is real :biggrin:

@Albo1125 Right when I think last minute changes can't be that bad. :P
All noted. I'll limit the help message to traffic stop only. When implementing it, I was mimicking IV's police computer help message. I can see how some may find it annoying.

Great! Also just added another point about the Vehicle.IsStolen property in the post above.

I'm glad my API guides were of assistance by the way. Really cool how it ties in with the Traffic Policer insurance DB :thumbsup:

My greatest wish is ability to cancel current callout (if callout gets buggy\stuck).

Nice job. Shame that I can't use it, these menus never seen to work for me. Even LMS couldn't find an issue so it must be GTA hating me.

:ohmy:

I never used X to decline or force callout, didn't know that, thanks for information. Official FAQ says that X is button to force callout, but there's nothing about cancelling. Ugh.

I've been using RAGEcomputer by Guadmaz to cancel callout, it's pretty immersive btw. But now I will use this Computer+.:woot:

I haven't downloaded(yet) but I am curious as to how this handles a Ped driving off while you're in the computer. Since it doesn't seem like there is a minimap display. When entering the computer does it slow the rate of time down or does it keep time normal? To be honest, I'm not even sure a Ped can flee while you look up their name and stuff. Seems like it always happens right when you get in anyways.. but you can never be too sure

I see in the instructions that to activate, you "hold E" ... does this mean the overhead lights on the police car won't turn off like they do when the standard police computer is used?

If so, this would be excellent.

Maybe also give the user the ability to select activation key in the .ini file ... 

I'll try this out tonight.  Thanks!!

aha, i worked this out the other day. If you want to use computer without turning on/off lights/siren, then you need to go to your keybindings in the menu and change the button you use for 'context action' to something else, personally i have it set to mouse button 5. This will change the computer key during a vehicle stop to the new key as well as (off top of my head) the arresting command and the 'takedown' challenge.

I also have 'toggle weapon accessory' (flashlights on guns) and 'horn' (emergency lights on/off) as mouse button 4. Works great for me.

 

for clarity, whatever you change the context action key to, will be the one this mod will use if you use a long press of it :)

I love the look of the mod, unfortunately I seem to be having issues getting it to work. The computer won't log in and I can't get back out of the computer either. I am stuck force quitting the game from the task manager.  Not sure what I could possibly be doing wrong

I will try this out tonight using your instructions. If this works, it will be epic. I completely avoided using the in-car computer because of that "E" key turning off the lights. Thanks for the guidance on that.

You are correct,  X does force another callout,  but also ends the current one. 

Some callouts packs do have a key to force end.

Whenever I try to type in a persons name on a traffic stop, it crashes LSPDFR. Can someone please help me? 

Sorry about that! Try searching again, it shouldn't happen. It's a rare(ish) issue that I'm working on.

What would be a great feature addition is a pop-up window to write a report ... and have it save to a text file on the hard drive. I have some ideas on that if the author is interested.

Thanks!

This mod is geared towards the more casual players. However, fiskey111 is working on something just like that!
