Additional Script Functionality

This update brings about the ability to add characters to the player's car or stage vehicles.

You can use this exciting new functionality to have passengers accompany the player in missions and just have characters present in a car.

CON Commands

  • Added the AddVehicleCharacter command.
  • Added the SetVehicleCharacterAnimation command.
  • Added the SetVehicleCharacterJumpOut command.
  • Added the SetVehicleCharacterScale command.
  • Added the SetVehicleCharacterSuppressionCharacter command.
  • Added the SetVehicleCharacterVisible command.

MFK Commands

  • Added the AddStageVehicleCharacter command.
  • Added the RemoveStageVehicleCharacter command.
  • Added the SetStageVehicleCharacterAnimation command.
  • Added the SetStageVehicleCharacterJumpOut command.
  • Added the SetStageVehicleCharacterScale command.
  • Added the SetStageVehicleCharacterVisible command.
  • Added the SetStageVehicleAllowSeatSlide command.
  • Updated SetStageCharacterModel to default the second argument to the player's current animation set instead of requiring the argument.

Bug Fixes

  • Added "Actors" > "Restore Wasp Collision".
    • This fixes an issue where destroying a certain number of wasps disables their collision until the level is fully reloaded.
  • Changed the tooltip for "Character Rotations" to be more specific about what it does. The hack's description was also updated to reflect this change.
  • Made "Fix Steering Animations" also fix the steering/swaying animation cancelling immediately/starting again repeatedly.

Custom Audio Format Support

Added support for Lua Path Handler Redirections on RSD files to FLAC and Ogg files.

Custom Files


  • Made CustomFiles.lua execute after all hacks that are supposed to be loaded are loaded.
  • Made this hack only mount "CustomFiles" folders that exist.
    • This change can dramatically improve performance if you have lots of mods enabled but only a few have CustomFiles folders (like Mod Hacks for instance).

Lua Scripting

  • Added GetLauncherVersion. This returns the current version of the Mod Launcher.
  • Added GetMainMod. This returns the InternalName of the current main mod (if there is one).
  • Added GetSettings. This returns the settings of the current mod (or the specified mod) in a Lua table.
  • Added IsTesting. This checks if the user is has the Mod Launcher's testing mode enabled.
  • Added UseCallbacks. This is an advanced function for handling files with Lua that may or may not have a use case.
  • Fixed an issue where "ComparePaths" was always case sensitive and always slash sensitive.

Debug Text


  • Made Ctrl+C copy the current page text to clipboard.
    • Also added "Allow Copying with Ctrl+C" to the "Advanced" tab of the hacks settings to disable that.

"actors" Page

Added this page.

"cams" Page

Made this page exclude null cameras.

"characters" Paege

Added this page.

"intersects" Page

Made this page not say "Y: " before the Y and "Z: " before the Z of "Intersect triangle pos 3".

"loaded characters" Page

Added this page.

"missions" Page

Made this page exclude null missions.

"mission" Page

  • Made this page show "null" for null objectives instead of crashing.
    • This is helpful for debugging in the event the stage's objective is not getting added.

"traffic" Page

Made this page render the segments of the road the car is currently on (and the previous roads segments if the car is on an intersection).

"triggers" Page

  • Made this page include the type number of locators in brackets after the type name.
  • Made sphere triggers render as spheres now instead of boxes.

Debug Test


Removed the F9 dialog to list all entered triggers.

Graphics Page

  • Added "No Texture/Alpha Operations/Arguments".

  • Made "No Splash Screen Loading" work in the demo version.

Interprocess Communication

Fixed an issue where the Pure3D Editor would hang when selecting locators or right clicking on 3D views in some cases with the following changes:

  • Made this hack still respond if the game is in a blocking modal loop or minimized while in fullscreen mode..
  • Made this hack uninitialise if the game crashes.

Modern Computer Support

Fixed an issue in the game where the border was not removed when in fullscreen (particularly noticable on Windows 10).

Lens Flare

Added this new hack. This makes Lens Flares work just like the console releases of the game.

Resizable Window

  • Fixed issues when switching from a resizable window to fullscreen.
  • Made the game not change its resolution when loading its settings if the window size is changed before then.
  • Made the game maintain its center when changing resolution instead of re-recentering on the screen.
  • Made the game continue processing and rendering when a Windows context menu (like you'd get when right clicking the caption of the window) is open.


Added the -debugscreenshots command line argument.

Video Texture Support

Added this new hack. This allows you to use BIK files as textures.
