@Unknown-Modder Thanks for telling me about the gameconfig issue. I didn't know about that. I was able to narrow it down. It is definitely related to some openiv mod because everything runs fine again once I deactivated openiv.asi. Bummer!
Well I can live without those missions, no big deal. It would just have been nice to play a round of golf again. You can mark this thread as solved.
@JonaQ DUDE!!!! I revisited this topic because I too had lately been getting this same crash/same error. It turns out after validating XML with notepad++, it found a single syntax error - very first line had a couple spaces before it - <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> so I pilled it over all the way to the left, and saved! I just knew someday this would come handy.
Version 0.9 of CCC is now released, and it is packed with new features. The video below shows what's new in this update:
FEATURE: Cruise control (2 modes)
FEATURE: Neon lights management
FEATURE: Roll individual windows up/down
FEATURE: Added animation for lock/unlock
FEATURE: Locking a car will make it persistent; it should not disappear.
FEATURE: Turn indicators / hazards now have sound
Gonna try this one now, but yeah its convenient enough to press one key at the start of the game, but from the looks of it, its gonna apply the handling to all cars though right, not to a certain type.
