The check procedure of the files is done by opening up files.txt and SHA1 hashing the contents of each file listed in cumulatively. If the hash doesn\'t match the hash stored in the exe, it exits. But there is a serious problem with this method. R* also rely on files.txt to check files.txt. This is how we hack without modifying the exe. So lame R* !
This is done by the calypto.bat file provided. (If you don\'t trust what it does, you can right click it and edit to see.)
1. You have to restore backups of files if u have changed or modified any file before. It is a MUST you have the original GTA IV files or this will not work! (You can use a cracked gta installation, thats ok)
2. Copy calypto.bat provided to your GTAIV MAIN folder.
3. Run calypto.bat (Run as Administrator if your operating system is Vista).
4. Make a backup of \\pc\\data\\filelist.pak (There is a backup provided so don\'t worry if u forget to backup or something goes wrong).
5. Overwrite \\pc\\data\\filelist.pak with the included filelist.pak .
6. Make a backup of loadingscreens_pc.dat found in \\Grand Theft Auto IV\\common\\data\\ (There is a backup in the archive so don\'t worry if u forget to backup or something goes wrong).
7. Copy the loadingscreens_pc.dat provided to your \\Grand Theft Auto IV\\common\\data\\ directory and overwrite your old one.
8. Please Visit www.bunekine.com to say hi or thanks.
9. Launch the game and ENJOY without watching (oops, not watching; waiting!) the legal screens and so called intros!
p.s: Because we don\'t modify any exe files, this should also work after a update.
p.s 2: If you follow my instructions step my step, this will work. If didn\'t, you have missed something so neither cry like a baby nor flame me!
p.s 3: This torrent is same as the one on demonoid (http://www.demonoid.com/files/details/1719664/) but has an extra mp3 file due to mininova restrictions on small sized torrent uploads.
