Well, for all of you who want to edit the textures. I've collect some useful tools for easy editing. They can be downloaded here: http://planet-driver.gamigo.de/driver3/ ... tools.html

The best of these tools is DXTBmp which was made for Microsoft Flightsimulator and Combat Flightsimulator. But it can also be used for the *.dds-files of Driv3r. You can edit the files and the Alpha-canal as *.bmp in any editor like MS Paint. So if you don't own Photoshop then this is the tool you need.

I hope this was helpful for you and there will be some nice mods out there in the future. :wink:

In fact I've been working on some mods still and I hope to release them soon.
I will upload a video soon of a mod I've been working on for ages, and this is the most exciting mod you could think of. The only problem is the file size of the mod, so I'm learning C so I can design a little program which does all the conversions for me.

Hi,
Thanks for having me here..

I have a little better instructions for extracting and replacing the textures in Driv3r.



Some things to note from reading this thread.
The tool programming doesn't appear to be buggy. It looks for a graphic marker, graphic size, and DXT type only. Most of the graphics stored in the libraries are DXT3 with an alpha channel and mips mapped. The tool can determine if it is a DXT1 or DXT3 but does not distinquish alpha or no alpha and mips mapped or not.
It's not designed to do massive modding of textures but can be used that way with a bit of patience.
It checks only programmed file extensions but you can rename any file's extension to one it will check. For instance guns.cpr will not show up in the tools file selections but you can rename it to guns.pcs to extract the textures.
My tool extracts as a Detail map only even though the graphic in the library has mips you need to generate the mips when saving. The extracted size will help you determine the DXT type.

Nice to see someone is still interested in this game. I only like doing 2 things in every game I get. Texture editing and exploring where the developers never intended you to go. I may try to access the maps just to walk around in. If you look at the No One lives Forever and Contract JACK stuff I have done you will see what I mean. I can actually walk around in the cinematics as the cut scenes are unfolding. Plus I have managed to access almost all parts of the maps that are unaccessable during normal game play.

Jay - are you still editing this game?

It’s been quite some time ever since my last update on everything to do with modding driv3r so I thought I’d talk about a lot of things to do with it.

Unfortunately my release date for “Driver 3 Modding” the upcoming website I’m working on is going to take a lot longer than originally planned. However the longer it takes the better the site will become since the site was going to have a menu structure like the “DPL-List” (using the same base code) and I worked out how horrible it’s loading times were so I found a way to make a better structural view which loads at ease even if I had hundreds and thousands of menu items which is a giant leap from the horrible menu system in the “DPL-List”.

During the past few months I have found some spare time however due being away from my fast PC I am unable to work on modding driv3r as much that mainly includes texture editing since I need to load the game to make sure it works however I may start texture editing without the game due to the new features “sparedlife” has put into the program to reduce errors in the game when importing textures. Due to being away a lot I’m also unable to mod Driver: Parallel Lines during in my holidays as my slow laptop can’t handle it especially while I’m on the move.

However during this time I’ll dedicate time onto other parts of this website and I’ll look inside and I’ll try and crack what would be in side all those archives in the Driver: Parallel Lines (PC) game hopefully it’ll be easy to mod and all those archives are not encrypted or anything which will make it hard to mod like driv3r was.

Well I’ll have a lot more news in the near future so hopefully I will have found enough time to get everything modded, well everything that I can possible find out in the remaining time.

About how many GBs of HD space do you need altogether for a DRIV3R install with the textures and stuff extracted?
User avatar
By madness
#6066
Well it's only about 5gig for a driv3r installation and it depends how many textures packs you want extracted, if your thinking about Mafia in that game you have everything extracted at the same time but driv3r doesn't work like that. If we were to extract all the textures in the game you'd probably add another 3gig onto the driv3r installation sum. I'm not all that sure since I've never had them all extracted at the same time.

Thanks for the reply, boss. This should help me plan out some hard drive space and decide what to sacrifice for another DRIV3R install. I want to check out this stuff you guys have been talking about next time I install DRIV3R.

Ok, if your thinking about trying to mod the game yourself I can give you some pointers to get you started.

Delete whatever you can so you can copy your perfectly working driv3r to another spot on your hard drive as you don't won't to ruin your perfectly working one.

Make about 5gig of space for the copy and other 3gig if you want to have all the texture archives extracted at once.

Once you have all necessary space find your current driv3r installation directory and copy it somewhere else on your HDD.

Now you can do what ever you want with this driv3r without affecting your original one. Now you can extract the archives and do whatever you want without ruining your main version.

I guess I pretty much covered what you were going to do any rate.
But soon I think I'll create a more in-depth guide in quick and easy modding. Well it's never quick and it's not always easy but I have some tips which make modding more of a breeze which if I get time I should be posting sometime soon.

I have taken a look through all my old files and found these images which I captured when previously attempting to mod driv3r.

The files comment explains the picture in a little more detail.

Wasn't there someone at Atari US quite sometime ago who wanted to mod Driv3r.
By myblueocean
#7837
Um, well. The person was on the US atari forum, and this was a few years back from what I can remember. Nothing really did get done...um, just people all wanting to know how to possibly open the files. Because the guy who made that thread, was saying well if you can Mod GTA, then why not Driv3r.

We are not sure if he's from Atari or Reflections.

Did he come back ? Or did he see our answer ?

Cole wasn't an Official Employee. He is just a member of the community.

Anyways I have gone back to modding driv3r. I have no idea why but for some reason I really prefer to mod driv3r rather than Driver: Parallel Lines.

Driv3r seems to have the unique and stylish feel that I don't usually see as much when playing dpl so I can assure everyone I'm still working hard at modding driv3r.

Now I'm looking more into textures than anything else now, and with the d3modding site back in mind maybe one day I'll get the thing completed and compete out of the way.

If I don't get it completed soon I'll just release all the information I know throughout the modding forum sections.

[hr]

So back to my latest work of art, a custom driv3r loader, every single time you go to load driv3r you can try this modification out just to see something a little different and to promote driver madness a little.
