    Hi all,
     
    It's a bit late to say it, but happy 2019 to everyone and we hope you all have a great year!
     
    Over the years, we've certainly gotten a little flack for the speed of our downloads, and for varying reasons, our optimizations over the years have not been enough for everyone.
    This hasn't went unnoticed, and this year one of our main priorities will be speeding up the site and downloads.
     
    We're starting 2019 strong, and we've introduced some measures already that will speed the site up for everyone:
    All core site resources are now served through our new global CDN system. All downloads are now served through our new global CDN system. Our edge servers have been updated to support the latest web standards, including but not limited to HTTP2 and Brotli. Core site resources are now optimized on the fly, and targetted for your browser. For example, if you're running Google Chrome, images and other site resources will be sent via the bandwidth-reducing WEBP format.  
    This is just the first step. There's still work ahead of us and room for improvement. Later this year, we're also expecting updates from our forum software provider that are focussed on speed.
     
    We hope these changes and the future changes to come will help improve the experience for everyone.

    Cyan reacted to Sam in [WIP] Coastal Callouts   
    Coastal Callouts has been in 'semi-public beta' since before 0.4 was even announced.  We announced our plans for the API for 0.4 and we're trying to release it, for free, to everyone, as quickly as we can.  I honestly think this attitude is disingenuous, especially considering the fact that you're charging people on a monthly basis for access to a 'semi-public' beta, with no end in sight, which you now seem to be justifying by pointing a finger at us.
     
    Are you going to increase the price and blame it on us too?

    The new CDN system is very strict on making sure the IP address of who completed the CAPTCHA matches who is downloading.
    I'm assuming for some reason your IP address is different between insecure and secure requests.
     
    I think I think a potential workaround for this and will let you know when we make it available.

    Cyan got a reaction from Dan with da van in Downgrading GTA IV / GTA EFLC to 1.0.7.0   
    LCPDFR and the Scripthook are not compatible with the recent unexpected GTA IV update. To make use of script modfications and LCPDFR again, we've compiled the following tutorial that will downgrade you to 1.0.7.0, the last version of GTA IV supported by the Scripthook.
    This tutorial will work with GTA IV and GTA EFLC.
     
    First, in your GTA directory, rename paul.dll to paul.original.dll. Go to this Rockstar support page and download the patch.
    GTA IV: https://support.rockstargames.com/hc/en-us/articles/200145406--May-28-2010-Grand-Theft-Auto-IV-Patch-7-Title-Update-v-1-0-7-0-English-1-0-6-1-Russian-1-0-5-2-Japanese-
    GTA EFLC: https://support.rockstargames.com/hc/en-us/articles/200145386-Grand-Theft-Auto-Episodes-from-Liberty-City-Title-Update-1-1-2-0-Patch-2- Extract the ZIP file to a new folder somewhere in your computer and run UpdateTitle.exe or (EFLC) setup.exe. After patching is complete, rename paul.dll to paul.old.dll. Rename paul.original.dll to paul.dll. Launch GTA IV. If all has went well, your GTA IV has been downgraded.

    Cyan got a reaction from lovkal in Clarification: What to choose for 'Script/Plugin type'   
    Hi developers,
     
    I've had to fix a few files which had wrong information under 'Script/Plugin type' over the years (mostly people making standalone plugins who have marked their plugin as an LSPDFR one). I thought since we haven't made it clear, I'd post a topic here clarifying what these options mean, and when to use each one. This post will also be linked at the field description.
    'LSPDFR callout(s)' - Your RAGEPluginHook plugin adds one or more callouts to LSPDFR via the API. 'LSPDFR plugin' - Your RAGEPluginHook plugin is loaded by LSPDFR or RAGEPluginHook, and talks to LSPDFR via the API. 'Standalone plugin' - Any plugin or script which does not depend on LSPDFR, and can operate without it. Any plugin which does not use the API, or optionally uses the API when LSPDFR is installed.  
    Of course, your plugin/script can be a mix of the above. As a result you can choose multiple options by holding the SHIFT key.
     
    Thanks,

    Cyan reacted to Sam in LSPDFR 0.4 - Coming February, 2019   
    So, it's been a while since we've provided an update on LSPDFR 0.4.  As you might've guessed from the title, though, there's a good reason for this...  It has taken us a lot of work to get to this point, and in the last couple of months alone we've made hundreds and hundreds of changes.  Anyway, here we are - who knows how many months late - but we're here.  No riddles, no treasure hunts, no @MSA (at least I'm pretty sure they're not here), but straight to the point!  We can now confirm that we'll be releasing LSPDFR 0.4 in February, 2019.  
     
    Anyway... with the scary part out of the way, I wanted to take the opportunity to explain ourselves a little.  No, @LMS wasn't renditioned to an IAA black site, no I didn't fall victim to the Orbital Cannon, and no...  the ghost of @ineseri didn't drive a train into us.  Perfectly plausible scenarios given our silence about 0.4 as of late, but we're actually still alive.  Instead, we've been pretty busy rushing to the finish line as far as 0.4 is concerned, and to complement the big news above, we thought we'd throw in a couple of sweeteners below to show just how much 0.4 is going to change things. 
     
    We've talked a lot about our Character system in LSPDFR 0.4.  It's one of the biggest changes to the mod, but we also think it represents an entirely new direction in general.  I say this because, not only does it allow us to have a bunch of really cool stuff natively integrated into the mod, like customizing a character, but it also lets us have a bunch of other really cool stuff natively integrated into the mod!  Having your own character dials up the immersion quite substantially, but we wanted to take things to another level.  We thought, for example, wouldn't it be cool if instead of spawning as Franklin in Franklin's house, you could instead, say, I don't know?  Actually spawn as your own character, in their house.  Or maybe, instead of switching to Trevor and your camera panning down to him being pursued by the LSPD, you could switch to one of your other characters, and "Google Earth" down to them being the LSPD. 
     
    LSPDFR 0.4 introduces a fully functional GTA Online Apartment to single-player, complete with transition sequences, working interactions and more Steve Haines than you can handle.
     
    It's not just that, though, we really wanted to dial it up.  Having your own character, them having an apartment, switching, customizing, it's all cool, right?  But you might be thinking, what's the point?  These are "multiplayer features".  And sure, LSPDFR is and most likely always will be a single-player mod, but that doesn't mean we can't think outside of the box every once in a while. 
     
    Recently, @Cyan, in addition to all of her work on the website, has also been developing an all new framework called LSPDFR Sync.  LSPDFR Sync lets you connect up to your LSPDFR.com account in-game, and you can then synchronize your LSPDFR characters with your LSPDFR.com profile.  To top it off, we've brought back statistics too.  Ever wanted to know how many shots your character has fired?  It's as simple as taking a look at your character's profile on the site - which, we should add, you can actually edit.
     

     

     
    LSPDFR Sync provides all-new, seamless connectivity with your LSPDFR.com profile.
     
    And frankly, it doesn't even end there.  When I said before that we wanted to dial the immersion up to the max, I guess I lied.  What I actually meant to say was that we'd just ripped the dial clean off the controls, strapped it to a rocket, and sent the damn thing up to the moon.  Not only can you now create a character, customize them, share them, spawn as them...  You can actually do things as them too!  Like, actual game things.  Ever wanted to run the triathalon as your LSPDFR Character?  Now you can.  Or, how about practicing with your sidearm down at the range?  Yep, got that too.  Simply want a can of sprunk from a vending machine?  No problem.
     

     
    With the introduction of a new innovative system by @LMS, it's now possible to do many of the single-player minigames while playing as your LSPDFR Character.
     
    Of course, with the Character system, and all of the features that come with it, being such a huge part of LSPDFR 0.4 it'd be easy to forget that this is a police mod.  Indeed, I think we almost did given the grotesquely gargantuan amount of work that has gone into it.  Fear not, though, as we have also been working on some incredible new gameplay features too, including massive improvements to interaction with suspects and people that you arrest.
     
    LSPDFR 0.4 introduces, in a game-changing way, the ability to take hold of and drag arrested suspects.  Yes, we know that there's some great API mods which have held the fort, and we're grateful for that, but this is something we wanted to get absolutely right, and indeed, we think the result is simply stunning.  The possibilities are pretty far-reaching too and encompass just about everything from shoving suspects up against cruisers, to personally escorting them into their cells.  
     

     

     
    No, these aren't cutscenes.  No, they're not edited screenshots.  With 0.4, this is real.
