    Is there any chance that you could do this with real racing 2 on a4 devices, i think the a4 can handle the graphics seen on the 4s and ipad 2

    So, how well does GTA 3 (Without the mods) run on a regular iPhone 4?

    I now have modded vehicles working in the game and have altered the handling characteristics of every vehicle to suite my liking.

    So far the cars I have are:

    Audi TT
    Lamborghini Murcielago
    Porche 911
    Ferrari 360

    I tried a bunch of other cars (Been at this for about 5 hours so far) and many cars do not work. Either because of a super high poly count, or other .dff or .txd issues.

    This guide (Guide) is the best one for beginners and describes in detail how to mod cars. Its best to use a windows based machine because I have not been able to find a working IMG Tool 2.0 for mac. (Bootcamped here)

    IF anyone happens to read this and has successfully gotten the Lamborghini Diablo/Countach working on their iDevice would you link the mod please?!!!


    The lambo mod is the best looking and greatest handling car in the game so far. So I copied its handling stats and replaced other top end cars with those stats. If you want the Handling.cfg file just message me and Ill give it to you.


    Unjailbroken iPad 2 and iPhone 4S 5.0.1.

    It runs fine on my non-jailbroken iPhone 4 on iOS 5.0.1. Even after I modded it to have the extra lighting & blood effects. Although when I tried it with retina resolution, the frame rate dropped whenever it rained in the game so I changed it back to the lower resolution to keep the frame rate up.

    It's cool that you guys are able to play it with the same
    level of detail as what the 4S can offer.

    Hi I also set up MAX graphics but now on my i4 this game slow down :/ and a question is how to disable hi-res (retina) graphics and preserve this setting like (blood, shadows and lights) to improve my frame rate?
    thx 4 answer dude! :)

    P.S. And its looks the same without retina resolution or maybe is a huge difference?

    A couple things first to try for GTA3 are as follows: for Jail Breakers's only IOS 5-try Retinasizer it upconverts an Open GL app to native retina resolution-(it does eliminate jaggies on GTA 3). Also change powermanagement.bundle constraints to enable tweak-releases limitations on the Iphone 4 processor to 1ghz through the battery its the same tweak on the Ipad.It seems to do a great job, and have recorded clock speeds, those are it so far. well also disable multitasking that frees up some VMemory too.

    I need an add on ext. for ifile hex editor?
    BTW is there any chance someone has thought of increasing the memory cache(system management)to help out with draw distance and pop in?

    Here, use this file instead - http://www.mediafire.com/?23rv2iphns2drhi

    I lowered the resolution, but kept all the extra lighting & blood effects.

    And no, there isn't a big difference between the two resolutions. Retina resolution looks sharper, but the game doesn't look bad in the lower resolution either.

    No, not to my knowledge. The game was never made to support retina display so I don't think it's possible.

    I decided to see what the max settings file from the first page would do on my iPad 1. Initially, there was no gta3.set file in the rockstar/Documents folder, so I just pasted it in to see what happened.

    The good news: The game looks great, with all the bells and whistles we've been discussing.

    The bad news: The buttons are now all over-sized, so it's difficult to play. Not surprisingly, the .set file seems to control button sizes and locations, and it's placed them as if the iPad was an iPhone (think x2 mode). Someone with more knowledge of how the buttons are controlled could probably fix it. I'm not sure why the iPad didn't even have the file to begin with.

    on your iPad go to the controls and reset to default, it should return the control sizes back to iPad standards.

    My configs:
    Iphone 4-IOS 5,Jail Broken redsnow b3 untethered,Retinasizer GTA3 string enabled,Power.management battery released to 1ghz,background multitasking disabled.


    Dragged and dropped max settings GTA3.set in documents folder with iexplorer and in game menu reset controls to defaults!*crossing fingers*

    My final impressions are this, razor sharp polygons and well worth the effort. No tearing or lag in frames just smooth-smooth-I have the same version as 4S or Ipad maybe better! What next 5.1 lossless audio?
    Thanks to you I am gonna get cozy with my Custom Sony phones and enjoy the memory lane ride:D:D:D:D

    Many, Many Thank You's!
