LSPDFR 0.2 Released

By Sam, in Articles,

We're proud to present the second major public release of LSPDFR, and by far the most epic version yet, LSPDFR 0.2.
LSPDFR Version 0.2 follows on from the groundbreaking success of our first release for GTA V, implementing a large number of features specifically asked for by our community.
You can find LSPDFR 0.2 on the brand new LSPDFR page, including a whole set of online resources and documentation, at http://www.lspdfr.com
As a follow up to our previous update, we're still hard at work preparing LSPDFR 0.2 for release.  At this time, it would appear that all issues caused by the latest update to GTA V have been resolved.
Unfortunately we're still experiencing issues with LSPDFR 0.2 which appear to be unrelated to the recent update and more of a problem with the modification itself.  These are in the form of script crashes that some, but not all, have encountered during pursuit testing and this is something we've been looking in to.  Unfortunately this seems to be quite a tricky problem to find as different users are experiencing different results. 
It isn't all bad news, though, as we've also managed to take advantage of this delay to squeeze in some extra development time, allowing for a couple of new features to be added, including the ability to use the police radio to check subject and vehicle records - something we know will be very popular.
We're all sorry for the problems we encountered with the planned release of LSPDFR 0.2 last night.  Unfortunately, there was a game breaking performance issue which was found only a few hours before we intended to release and this has required some time to investigate.
The good news is that we've done our best to mitigate this problem, related to the way in which Rockstar has started to introduce anti-modding protections.  Indeed, the problem has been identified and an alternative solution is now in place. 
This new version of LSPDFR 0.2 is now currently undergoing testing, and we hope to be in a position to release 0.2 as soon as possible - please check back through the day for further updates.
The second part of the Ill-Gotten Gains patch is here. Following on from last month's title update, this patch adds new guns, cars, clothes and more to the already vast world of GTA V. Like the earlier update, this update focuses on adding more high-end expensive items.
Here's a quick summary on some of the new content:
Vehicles - Coil Brawler, Progen T20, Vapid Chino, Dinka Vindicator and the Lampadati Toro Weapons - Marksman Pistol and Knuckle Dusters Clothing - iFruit Snap Watch, Medici Radial and Covargi Universe and More. Sadly, this update disables the ability to use LSPDFR, as the underlying Rage Plugin Hook will need updated for this new patch. We'll let you know as soon as this happens.
Although, good news if you use Scripthook V modifications. Alexander Blade has released an update to the popular hook, which you can find here.

Edit: An update is now available for the Rage Plugin Hook. You can find it on their website.
This is the final part of our LSPDFR 0.2 preview series.  For more information about the changes we're making with 0.2, take a look at the previous installments in this series, found here:: http://www.lcpdfr.com/forums/forum/880-news-updates/
LSPDFR 0.2 not only goes some way in addressing a lot of the feedback we received as far as features were concerned, but it also includes a large number of fixes for issues reported to us.  A full list of these fixes will be published with the release, although among the things we sorted out are many of the frustrations people had with arresting, as well as traffic stop suspects reversing into players and the problems with detecting vehicles for traffic stops.
Also included in LSPDFR 0.2 is the reintroduction of the police radio, as well as all the elctroshocking glory of stun guns.  For more information, and a screenshot, read on.
This is the second part of our LSPDFR 0.2 preview series.  For more information about the background behind 0.2, check out the first installment in this series here: http://www.lcpdfr.com/forums/topic/51800-lspdfr-02-announcement-first-preview
By far the most hotly requested feature for the next version of LSPDFR was the resurrection of the police computer.  A vital tool for those of you that like to add some detail to your patrols - I'm happy to confirm that the police computer will make its return, with a vengeance, in 0.2.
The new Police Computer is capable of searching both license plates and subject names, and will actually perform a real search on every vehicle or person currently in the game.  If a match is found, it will then be returned to you via a notification after a slight delay.  In essence, this is a very real implementation of the system, and we hope that it will be more immersive than our offering in LCPDFR, which felt fake at times.
As with the first installment in this series, be sure to click below where you can read more about the new Police Computer, and the data it uses, as well as check out how it looks.
Following on from the massive debut of LSPDFR on GTA V a mere two weeks ago, we're proud to announce the next installment in the series - LSPDFR 0.2 - featuring not only numerous enhancements and fixes, but also some highly requested features.
Indeed, while originally versioned as 0.1.1, the number of changes introduced in 0.2 seemed too significant to be represented by only a minor increment. LSPDFR 0.2 goes some way in adressing much of the feedback after the first public release and is our first response, pun most definitely intended, to thousands of the comments we've received since then through the forums, YouTube and social media.
From the electroshocking glory of stun guns, to a blast from the past with the LCPDFR style search areas and pursuit blipping, LSPDFR 0.2 packs a serious punch and is a major improvement from our first offering.  
Over the next couple of days, we'll take a look at some of the features that the second version of LSPDFR brings to the table.  For now, though, be sure to click below where you can read more about the pursuit search areas and check out a sneak peek screenshot of a traffic stop, 0.2 style.

Also included in LSPDFR are a variety of police backup options, an interaction menu and various other features.  Be sure to study carefully the User Documentation provided with the modification, which explains the features LSPDFR offers.

Open IV 2.6.4

By Sam, in Articles,

The latest version of Open IV, 2.6.4, is now available for download.  The newest update to the popular tool, which makes viewing and editing most the game's files possible, brings with it support for all of GTA V's audio files, including police scanner and speech lines.
Interestingly, the amount of dialogue included with the scanner is absolutely incredible, and we're working on implementing as much of it into LSPDFR as possible.  For those of you looking to play around with the speech files, you can use this tool http://www.lcpdfr.com/files/file/5443-gta-v-speech-decoder/ to decode them.
You can get the latest version of Open IV from http://openiv.com/
