Steelport Flashback Movie Festival Billboards mod by IdolNinja and JediDave Mayor Reynolds has just worked out a back alley deal with the MPAA and acquired the rights to the very best 80s and 90s classic movies to show at the annual Steelport Movie Flashback Festival this year. As part of the city wide promotion, this mod updates all the in-game billboards with tons of classic movie posters to get everyone in the mood. ********************** INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS 1. Find the following 2 files in the \cache subfolder where you have SRTT installed: ..\Steam\steamapps\common\saints row the third\packfiles\pc\cache\sr3_city_0.vpp_pc ..\Steam\steamapps\common\saints row the third\packfiles\pc\cache\sr3_city_1.vpp_pc 2. Copy both sr3_city_0.vpp_pc and sr3_city_1.vpp_pc to this extracted folder where this readme and batch file is for the mod. 3. Run patch_srtt_billboards.bat batch file and go make yourself something to eat. The patching process takes ~20 minutes since it has to extract and work with ~5000 files. You will get a completion splash screen when the batch is finished doing its work. 4. Browse to the MY_CUSTOM_BILLBOARDS folder and you should see a ton of new files created. Half of them are str2_pc and the other half are the matching asm_pc files. 5. Move all of these newly created files to your SRTT install folder with the game exe: ..\Steam\steamapps\common\saints row the third\ 6. Grab some popcorn and let's go the movies! ********************** HUGE VERTICAL LCD BILLBOARDS DOWNTOWN Back to the Future Karate Kid Star Wars Blade Runner Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Robocop Return of the Living Dead Tron Army of Darkness Top Gun Scarface Jaws STANDARD HORIZONTAL BILLBOARDS Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure Romancing the Stone They Live Aliens Predator The Last Starfighter Commando T2 Cobra Tremors Darkman Ghostbusters A Clockwork Orange Smokey and the Bandit Flash Gordon Buckaroo Banzai Big Trouble in Little China The Rocky Horror Picture Show Mad Max 3: Beyond Thunderdome Gremlins SPECIAL STAG OCCUPATION ONLY BILLBOARDS Die Hard Fifth Element Rocky Escape from New York Friday 13th Megaforce *Special thanks to BadMadScientist for the Friday 13th billboard ********************** MISC STUFF * The airport terminal and surrounding area have quite a few unique billboards that only appear there. * If you are far enough away it shows the original vanilla billboard for a second but changes over to the new one when you get slightly nearer. It's probably something with the LOD. It's most noticeable when you're on the hoverbike or VTOL and can see really far. * There is one billboard named billboard_mbrawl_a_d.cvbm_pc that I absolutely could not find in the game files despite multiple indexed searches. I even combed through all 5 airport streaming files looking for any/all texture files that were close in size to 86kb (the standard billboard size) with no luck. This is obviously the Killbane walking apocalypse one you can see at the airport terminal. I am completely stumped on this one. ********************** UNINSTALL INSTRUCTIONS To uninstall the mod and revert back to vanilla billboards, simply delete all the str2_pc and asm_pc files that were created by this batch file from the root of your SRTT install. The modded billboard files should be pretty easy to recognize since they all start with 4 numbers and are the range 0714 - 1816.
