GTA-IVaud is an ivaud pcm audio replacement utility designed for modifying audio files used in Grand Theft Auto IV.

------------------------------------------- GTA-IVaud v1.1.5 by Vilavek ------------------------------------------- 1. Introduction 2. Change Log 3. Requirements 4. Credits 5. Command-line Options 6. Tutorial 7. Legal Crap ________________________________________ ( 1. Introduction ) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ GTA-IVaud is an ivaud audio replacement utility. It allows modders to replace audio within ivaud archives which have been extracted using other 3rd party utilities such as OpenIV or SparkIV from GTA-IV's RPF archives. Just as with the above mentioned programs, GTA-IVaud does not show the filenames for ALL audio streams within ivaud files because not all audio streams are associated with filenames. ________________________________________ ( 2. Change Log ) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ --= Version 1.1.5 =--- * List now displays filenames * List now displays audio length * Removed hex offset and length from being automatically displayed * Fixed issue which caused arithmetic and overflow errors to be displayed while opening certain ivaud files --= Version 1.1 =--- * Fixed major compatibility issue with Vista 64-Bit * Added improvements to ivaud header interpreter * Added columns to display offset and length information ________________________________________ ( 3. Requirements ) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ - Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 - Tested on Version of GTAIV Files ________________________________________ ( 4. Credits ) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Thanks to my good friend Robbie for his assistance with Bob Jenkins Hashing. Special thanks to 5050gs from YouTube for demonstrating that an ivaud editor is possible. I would also like to thank oinkoink and zerofreeze from the GTAForums for all their help! ________________________________________ ( 5. Command-line Options ) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ARGUMENT DESCRIPTION -extracthash Extracts the list of filenames GTA-IVaud hashes -hash (filename) Loads the provided filename list instead of the internal one ________________________________________ ( 6. Quick Tutorial ) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 1) Open an rpf archive using a 3rd party tool such as SparkIV or OpenIV 2) Extract the ivaud you wish to edit audio for 3) Open the ivaud in GTA-IVaud 4) Extract the specific sound(s) you wish to modify 5) Modify the sound(s) using a 3rd-party waveform editor (I use GoldWave) 6) Import and replace the original audio file inside the ivaud with your modified one 7) Import your modified ivaud archive back into the rpf file using SparkIV or OpenIV ________________________________________ ( 7. Legal Crap ) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This program is provided "as-is" without any implied warranty or support. Use of modified files during online play may result in being banned. Use at your own risk!
