    Hydraulics Customization Mod by IdolNinja v0.1

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

    IMPORTANT WARNING!! READ THIS!!

    There are some major problems with this mod that you need to know before installing:

    * This mod will only work correctly if your garage is clean and does NOT contain any manually saved vehicles or vehicles you customized. Before installing, you must first delete any vehicle from your garage that you have added or customized. Reward vehicles are okay, and you can also safely start a new game/save.

    * There are 5 vehicles that hydraulics do not work for. These vehicles do not bounce when you use the dubstep gun on them either:
    Bear
    Knoxville
    Titan
    Flatbed
    Steelport Municipal

    * If you coop with someone who does not have this mod installed, it will likely crash both games the second you try to access a car. This is just a guess though. Please report any results.

    * In addition to adding hydraulics, all vehicles in this mod have been edited to make every single customization option available for purchase. Some options may be buggy and not work correctly. Make sure to report any customization problems in the thread.

    * For Cthulhu's sake, make sure to create a manual save before installing this mod so that you can revert back if it completely messes up your game. DO NOT RELY ON AUTOSAVE OR YOU MIGHT REGRET IT!

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

    INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS

    The mod is too big (111Mb) to upload as an attachment to this thread, so I put it up on our ftp instead:
    http://idolninja.saintsrowmods.com/sr4/mods/SR4_Hydraulics_Customization_Mod_v0.1_IdolNinja.rar

    Extract the contents of this archive to the SRIV root where the game exe resides:
    ..\Steam\steamapps\common\Saints Row IV\

    NOTE! This mod contains some files that are also in the "customize all vehicles" mod to make things easier; mainly the helicopter and plane files. You can safely overwrite any files with the ones from this archive and have everything all work correctly.

    ADDITIONAL STEPS IF YOU ARE USING KEYBOARD AND MOUSE (AND NOT A GAMEPAD)

    1. Download and extract this additional archive as well, overwriting control_binding_sets.xtbl from the base mod:
    http://idolninja.saintsrowmods.com/sr4/mods/SR4_hydraulics_mod_extra_files_for_kbam.rar

    2. Navigate to the following menu: Options/Controls/Set Keys and Buttons
    Press F1 to Restore Defaults All Categories

    NOTE! This will disable the Right Thumbstick on a gamepad for use with hydraulics and make it solely controllable with the mouse!

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

    USING HYDRAULICS

    360 Controller:
    To use hydraulics in-game, follow these steps:
    1. Customize your vehicle and purchase Hydraulics from the Body Mods menu
    2. While in the vehicle, click the Left Thumbstick (LS) to activate hydraulics. Once activated, moving the Right Thumbstick will bounce the vehicle. To deactivate, click LS again. If you continue to hold the Right stick in a certain direction, you can lock the hydraulics in place by clicking LS. Click in LS again to unlock.

    Mouse and Keyboard:
    1. Customize your vehicle and purchase Hydraulics from the Body Mods menu
    2. While in the vehicle, press B to activate hydraulics. Moving the mouse will bounce the car up/down and left/right. The faster the mouse motion, the more bounce you will get.
    3. Press M to fully extend the hydraulics and lock them. Press M again to release the lock
    4. Press B again to turn off hydraulics

    *NOTE! Make sure to position your camera first before activating hydraulics since the camera gets locked in place after activating (until you deactivate!)

    The following 61 vehicles now have hydraulics options:

    Ambulance
    Anchor
    Atlantica
    Atlastbreaker

    Everything I know about getting kbam working in case anyone wants to lend a hand:

    While the 360 controller works perfectly with hydraulics, the keyboard does not. I have added some entries to the vehicle section of control_binding_sets.xtbl to activate the hydraulics and (hopefully) use the mouse to control them once activated. The activation of the hydraulics works correctly with B in-game (once you reset your bindings with the table in the root.) You can tell they activate because it locks the camera and does not unlock until you press B again to deactivate.

    Here are the new entries I added to it. You can also look directly at the modified table which I've attached to this post.
    Code (Text):

           <Control>
             <Action>CBA_VDC_HYDRAULICS_TOGGLE</Action>
             <Key>B</Key>
             <Mouse_Button>UNBOUND</Mouse_Button>
             <Debug_Only>False</Debug_Only>
             <Non_Release_Final>False</Non_Release_Final>
             <Alt_Key>UNBOUND</Alt_Key>
             <Alt_Mouse_Button>UNBOUND</Alt_Mouse_Button>
             </Control>
           </Button_Controls>
         <_Editor>
           <Category>Entries</Category>
           </_Editor>
         <Common_Bindings>False</Common_Bindings>
         <Axis_Controls>
           <Axis>
             <Action>CAA_DRIVE_HYDRAULIC_LEFT_RIGHT</Action>
             <Key_Pos></Key_Pos>
             <Key_Neg></Key_Neg>
             <Mouse_Button_Pos>UNBOUND</Mouse_Button_Pos>
             <Mouse_Button_Neg>UNBOUND</Mouse_Button_Neg>
             <Mouse_Axis>MOUSE X</Mouse_Axis>
             <Alt_Key_Pos>UNBOUND</Alt_Key_Pos>
             <Alt_Key_Neg>UNBOUND</Alt_Key_Neg>
             <Alt_Mouse_Button_Pos>UNBOUND</Alt_Mouse_Button_Pos>
             <Alt_Mouse_Button_Neg>UNBOUND</Alt_Mouse_Button_Neg>
             </Axis>
           <Axis>
             <Action>CAA_DRIVE_HYDRAULIC_FRONT_REAR</Action>
             <Key_Pos></Key_Pos>
             <Key_Neg></Key_Neg>
             <Mouse_Button_Pos>UNBOUND</Mouse_Button_Pos>
             <Mouse_Button_Neg>UNBOUND</Mouse_Button_Neg>
             <Mouse_Axis>MOUSE Y</Mouse_Axis>

             <Alt_Key_Neg>UNBOUND</Alt_Key_Neg>
             <Alt_Mouse_Button_Pos>UNBOUND</Alt_Mouse_Button_Pos>
             <Alt_Mouse_Button_Neg>UNBOUND</Alt_Mouse_Button_Neg>
             </Axis>
    Mike Wilson also took a look:

  3. ...and with that, it is now time for me to get a wireless Xbox controller for PC. ;) Nice work, Idol!
     
  4. No Keyboard and mouse ?! Why ?! Whyyyy?!
     
  5. I am curious as to why keyboard and mouse doesn't work with this.
     
  6. Holy Shiznit... what did you do to the Torch, that thing is really quick now :oops:

    Hydraulics work great!!!

    Oh if you have the Nitrous enabled in the phone menu you can kick nitro off, then kick off Hydraulics and do really stupid things :cool:

    If you expand the text between Ninja and the Mike Wilson you will be able to see, they currently can not get it to work properly with the keyboard entries.

    Idol, have you looked at the key config for SR2's pc version to see what Hydraulics settings are there and maybe see if they can be carried over to the SR4 keyboard config? Just a thought...

    Alt Tab'n back to the game... time for some bounce
     
  7. So what does this do for the gang decals? I believe you mentioned previously that the hydraulics meshed with the gang decals pretty well, am I right?
     
  8. Oh Saints row 2 fun is you returning home?!?!? Thank you guy

    The Torch handling was not touched. You sure that's not just in your head?

    SR2 controls were not exposed at all in a table like they are in SRTT and SRIV.

    That's a completely separate issue. The fix will just be using the same files as this mod. Our tools can't properly add in new files yet though.
     
  10. Damn now I gotta go fix my wired xbox remote (for some reason it just stopped working :/)
