Main Content

Welcome to my data shrine.

Behold and worship every bit, every byte and every unsigned long.



Vehicle Checker

This application compares the important bits in your files with the original GTA:SA data.

It can be used to ensure that your vehicles are 'race legal' for MTA

The files it checks are:
data/default.dat
data/handling.cfg
data/vehicles.ide
models/gta3.img

The car models are checked to make sure the following are the same as the original GTA:SA data:
1. The root frame
2. The wheel_dummy frames
3. The collision data

So when you next win 10 races in a row, and people start to whine, you can say 'I've run Vehicle Checker and everything is ok, so you guys must just suck'
