  1. I can try to help, but I'll need more information. Let's start with your logfile (in the main folder) what mods you've tried this with and your computer specs. Does the game immediately CTD or does it hang? Certain large mods, on lower end computers may take a while to load. The game is old, it is not greatly optimized, so loading can take quite some time, could this be the case for you?
  2. Just a little bit further to this, if you send me a message on discord with your email and username request in the first message, I will be able to process it a lot quicker. There are significant points of time where I will not be able to answer right away. However, if everything I need is already in my inbox, as soon as I see it, I can process it as opposed to playing phone tag!
  3. Hi everyone, With the news about the German Emergency forum shutting down, and a few other things coming up, it's been brought to our attention that our CAPTCHA is not working properly and it's preventing new registrations. If you are coming from the german community and do not have an account for here (or have since forgot the login details) you can reach out to me directly on discord and I'll help get you set up. This isn't ideal, and hopefully we'll have everything under control soon, but in the meantime, this is a stopgap measure to hopefully allow those who want to join our community to do so. I'll need your preferred email and username when you message me newfoundking. (needs the .)
  4. That is one of the more complex things you can do. If you want to add things like a new car accident, or a new fire spawn point, that's a little easier. To add brand new missions though, that's much more complex. To start simple, you can add in a car crash like this: I've updated the links in my original post to redirect to the correct posts. Additionally, even though they're REALLY old, there's some tutorials on the site's English section back when we were all much more active, from Hoppah, Voodoo and the like. I recommend perusing those. If you want to change the spawns for freeplay, that's under the station script, you'll see vehicles getting attached to virtual objects. Take a look through a few of the tutorials in the LA Mod section (think like 2008-2011) and you'll get some good detailed walk throughs
  5. You edit the number of parking spaces in your freeplay spec file. Find it in mod:specs/fp_params_endless.xml or _challenge.xml, depending on which place you play. Go to line 13 and edit <MaxParkingSpace value="150"/> to a higher value that works for your game Looking at -98/150, that means that your mod has about 248 vehicles in the "garage" as it is, so you need to have probably 300 as your max parking spaces.
  6. Essentially where the game is so old, it'll run into issues with the newer settings on most modern PCs. You can try running in compatibility mode, but beyond that, it's really just guess and check. Unfortunately, the game doesn't play nice with newer equipment, especially AMD. I have tried several mods and different ones work with different settings, there doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason to it.
  7. Usually this means there's a script error. This is a problem with the specific mod you're using, as the script was placed in, but not fully implemented. It's calling to a symbol that doesn't exist.
  8. Original version as in the pre-missionmod version? Yes, it was replaced by the updated version, EmP doesn't have a file on our site for the older version. I'm not sure if Itchboy or Bama1234 would have a local copy on their drives they'd be willing to release on an unsupported version, but likely not. I know with previous mods once updates are made, the old version isn't available any more. I remember with this mod there was a script stack issue that would cause significant lag after long playtimes, which I don't know if it was ever fixed in the public version prior to release of this version.
  9. Can you take a screenshot of this happening? Or a phone pic of the screen if you can't manage that? I have an inkling that this has to do with your graphics settings (especially if you've got an AMD card) but it's hard to tell for sure. Can you also post a logfile from the session in question, and either your specs, or ideally your dxdiag? (start > DxDiag > Save all Information) If you are running AMD, go into your AMD control panel (right click your desktop and click the AMD icon) and disable all controls for the AMD game. Additionally try lowering your graphics settings, try medium, and try low. That MIGHT help. Without seeing your specs and the exact issue, that's the best shot in the dark I can come up with.
  10. Oops, it's been a little while, I missed this notification. I just took a look at mine, and it seems like that is indeed the same settings I have, but you're still getting the issue. One thing I did have to do, for whatever reason, was turn down some graphics settings inside the game. I think for everything I'm running either medium or low settings. If I try to put it on high, I either get CTD or these phantom issues again. Theoretically you should be able to run it, since a potato can run Em4, BUT because it's so old, certain things don't play nicely. Try running it at lower settings and if that helps. Be aware, I ended up having to load a game, change the settings, get out and repeat. And if I try to raise the settings, I get the trouble again. This might be a fix.
  11. Go into either AMD or NVidia's graphics program on your PC and disable anything for Em4. Do not let it try to upscale or do anything, when you do, this should solve it.
  12. Turn off any outside graphics settings, like Radeon or Nvidia. That happens when the game is getting effects forced into it that it cannot process. When I disabled my Radeon for the game, it solved the problem.
  13. Dusted off the link, it's all good now, should be fixed.
  14. Holy thread resurrecting batman. Disable anything fancy like spatial audio, enhancements, or anything software enhancing along the way. Literally ran into this option last time I dusted off Em4. Turned off spatial and other enhancements both from the windows prompt and the realtekhd audio software and that stopped the issue. Everything was fine after that. Em4 doesn't play well with external toys trying to tweak it. She's an old game.
