Hi I am new to this forum I joined about 1hr ago. I want to start modding GTA IV at first I was going to use my xbox but I think that you cant mod the game so that I can drive round in the proper cars. So I have decided to go with PC. I am running windows on my mac using bott camp. So the questn is can anyone tell me how to mod? I have no idea or where to start? Can anyone tell me what to do from initialling the game to installing the car mods like the Lamborghini etc. Please thank you :)

Have you even tried to run GTA IV yet? I doubt it's going to run very well on a Windows emulator. Especially on a Mac, which aren't built for gaming at all. I'd get past that point before worrying about modding it.

That's my point (sorta', should have given some details but thanks anyway Spaz you're dismissed). Modders usually give instructions on how to install the mod themselves.

FYI: GTA IV can't even run correctly on Windows, let alone an emulator...

I'm an OLD dude gamer, getting a PC basically worthy of ATTEMPTING to play the regular PC GTA IV and Episodes. I have an 80GB HDD formatted with Vista Home Premium and it's maxed out to 10GBs free after deleting GTA SA and vid/aud/porn files... Still not enough room, this game is about 16GBs of required space without any mods it seems. I need to pair the OS drive with an extra one, is there a way to get around buying two OSes to do that? I've got all my discs in storage to move around a lot with no solid job leads....and no money for all the parts I'd need.

I bought Episodes which I do have on PC but it's also in storage, sadly, and the version there should work with Mods. San Andreas re-dressed on RAGE uses GTA IV files I'm sure, but I'm not sure about what is needed, what goes where, and of course, I read you must back up original files that the MOD replaces.

Two issues of PC Gamer touch on these two mods for PC GTA fans, the San An HD Rage, and ENB/iCEnhancer. I wish to explore all the cool skins, affects and car packs, but I think those "tutorials" are somewhat geared to experienced modders or PC users, rather then console gamers who do more mundane things on laptops and PC! haha Like me.

Links I think could help, Besides PC Gamer's magazine issues, most recent to Dec 2011

ENB developer's page is a good one to bookmark, since this is where it begins for the mod improvements, BTW, use an older version of GTA IV for PC without any patches past a certain point where they clash with the mods you want to install
