    Tutorial Disable Mod v3 by IdolNinja
    http://idolninja.com
    http://saintsrowmods.com

    Disables all tutorial popup hints like how to use the cellphone to transfer money, saints book, etc.

    INSTALL:
    Copy sr3_city.lua in the root of this archive to your SR3 install folder:
    ..\steam\steamapps\common\saints row the third\

    NOTE: This lua file also includes the mission replay functions so it can easily replace the one from the mission replay mod if you're using both.


    CHANGELOG

    v3
    Fixes all issues related to prompts for Escorts and garages. It should now work perfectly with no issues.

    v2
    Fixes Tiger Escort so that the courage meter rises correctly
    Fixes the "Press Y to Store Vehicles" prompt so that it disappears correctly

    v1
    Disabled Tutorial Popups

    ********************************

    HOW IT WORKS FOR V3:
    Adds the following command to the sr3_city_main() function:
    tutorial_suspend_all(true)


    HOW IT SEMI-WORKED for v1 and v2:

    Adds 5000 to both the x and y start coordinates for the tutorial popup window moving it offscreen:

    start_x = Tutorial.start_x + 5000,
    start_y = y + 5000,


    Also comments out both audio samples for tutorial popups

    --play audio for scanimate type
    --game_UI_audio_play("UI_HUD_Tutorial")

    --play audio for help type
    --game_UI_audio_play("UI_HUD_Help")

    The original flawed method in v1 commented out the vint request in the tutorial_open() function. While this did work, it had the nasty side effect of causing trouble with things like Tiger Escort that inits those popup windows as part of the activity. This new method ensures that all the functions work the same way, just offscreen and silently.

    A couple of bugs found:
    * Tiger Escort Courage meter no longer increases, only the Rage one does... as weird as that is. :confused:
    * "Press Y to Store Vehicle" Prompt sometimes does not disappear.

    I think I'll look again at the lua and see if I can't take a different approach.

    I was just informed that the Tiger Escort prompts seem to be missing, for example: "Powerslide for 3 seconds". Another reported bug is that prompts for storing and removing vehicles from the garage is missing as well. These may be something I can setup a conditional block for if I can figure out what data is being sent for them.
     
  6. any chance of getting an updated version of this that will work with the latest DLC?

    I'll try to update all the standalone mods soon.

    Updated to v3 which should now work perfectly and not screw up garage or escort prompts. It also no longer uses any str2_pc files so no need to update asm files. See the OP for changelog.
     
  9. Maybe a redundant question -but better to be safe than sorry- is this compatible with your "Lowered Cruise Control HUD" mod?
