Motorbike addons don't install properly



  • Hey, so I've been trying to get Motorcycle addons to work, I follow the authors instructions 100% correct but then when I get in game I try to spawn them (Using simple trainer which is stated on the instructions) and when I do it says "Invalid Model" or "Nothing found" can someone please help me fix this, thanks. :)



  • @Biker101
    Give me a link to one of the Motorcycle mods you are having trouble with & copy what's inside your 'dlclist.xml' to Pastebin & link it here too & I'll take a look. :thumbsup:

    Installed it & it works perfectly for me. I spawned it by name with ENT by typing in the name 'bmws'.

    DLCPACKS:
    Double-check that you have installed the 'bmws' 'dlc.rpf' here:

    ...\mods\update\x64\dlcpacks\bmws\dlc.rpf

    DLCLIST.XML:
    When you post 'dlclist.xml' data directly to a gta5mods forum post as you have done above the site sometimes removes slashes/backslashes so I'm not sure if it's that but from the looks of your post above you are missing a backslash from the bmws dlclist line (the second backslash between 'bmws' & the back arrow '<' is missing). I've marked the spot with a star '*' in the example below:

    <Item>dlcpacks:\bmws*</Item>
    

    Just double-check that the bottom of your dlclist.xml looks identical to this (see ''dlclist.xml' Info:' below for info on differences between backslashes ( \ ) & forward-slashes ( / ) etc):

    		<Item>dlcpacks:\patchday18ng\</Item>
    		<Item>dlcpacks:\patchday19ng\</Item>
    		<Item>dlcpacks:\bmws\</Item>
    	</Paths>
    </SMandatoryPacksData>
    

    'dlclist.xml' Info: It doesn't matter if you use backslashes or forward slashes as long as they are both the same in any one line & it doesn't matter if the 'item' or 'Item' parts are capitals or lowercase ('i' or 'I') as long as any two in the same line are also both the same

    Note: The '</Item>' part at the end of the line should always have a forward slash. Don't get it confused with the others.

    You can safely copy the five lines I have posted above & paste it over the last five lines of your 'dlclist.xml' if you like :slight_smile: :thumbsup: (as mentioned, it will work even though comparing our examples the slashes are the other way on the 18/19ng lines :thumbsup: )

    Let me know how you get on with that & we'll take it from there :thumbsup:

    @Reacon you learn something new every day :)



  • @ReNNie damn lmao, i always thought it mattered because i've seen people mentioning it as a fix and people saying it worked but guess i was wrong lol

    Nope, thanks for trying though I appreciate it, I tried everything you said, everything is how it's meant to be but its still not working. :/

    Ok :slight_frown:
    In the 'ReadMe.txt' that comes with the 'BMW S1000 RR 2014 [Add-On | Tuning] 1.1' mod it says:

    Installation:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    (1) Copy update folder to 
    X:\Grand Theft Auto V\ 
    

    but that is the install path for the game folder, NOT the 'mods' folder. Did you follow that part of the instructions exactly or did you ignore it & install it to the 'mods' folder anyway?

    Double-check that 'bmws' 'dlc.rpf' is EXACTLY here:

    Grand Theft Auto V \ mods \ update \ x64 \ dlcpacks \ bmws\ dlc.rpf

    If that doesn't highlight any issue here are a few other things to try/confirm:

    Confirm 'mods' folder working:
    Do you have a way of confirming that your 'mods' folder is working? Any other add-ons/replace/timecycle etc mods that are only installed in the 'mods' folder (& not in the game folder) that you can confirm are working & making changes when you load the game?

    'dinput8.dll', 'OpenIV.asi' & a folder called 'mods' (lowercase) are all in the Grand Theft Auto V root game folder? (same folder as 'GTA5.exe' & 'GTAVLauncher.exe').

    Empty 'dlclist.xml' 'mods' folder test:
    If your 'mods' folder is the same as vanilla & you have no way of telling if it is being loaded by the game you can blank 'dlclist.xml' to this (make backup first):

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <SMandatoryPacksData>
    	<Paths>
    	</Paths>
    </SMandatoryPacksData>
    

    save your new no dlc dlclist & then install it to here using OpenIV:

    ...\mods\update\update.rpf\common\data\dlclist.xml

    Load up the game & if all your dlc vehicles & weapons etc (that were previously present) are now missing you know that your 'mods' folder is confirmed working.

    If you can still spawn all your dlc vehicles & weapons your 'mods' folder is NOT working & you are loading from the game folder.

    Different Trainer:
    If you confirm your 'mods' folder is working correctly it might be an idea (after reverting 'dlclist.xml' to what you had it before) to try spawning the 'bmws' using a different trainer.
    There are at least 2 people in recent Simple Trainer comments asking why they can't spawn add-on cars (although others confirm working for them) which may possibly indicate an issue. Worth ruling out anyway :thumbsup:

    Let me know how you get on & we'll take it from there :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the help @a63nt-5m1th although I tried everything you said and it still doesn't work, the mods folder is confirmed working, I did install it just to the update not "mods" and the dlc.rpf is in the correct location. I also downloaded a new trainer and tried it, although still doesn't work, I really don't know whats wrong but thanks for trying to help, if there is other things I can try, please respond. :)



  • @Biker101
    It should be installed to the 'mods' folder. Copy & paste the folder path of your 'dlcpacks' folder that you have the 'bmws' folder in (hide/replace your Windows Username when you post it here for security reasons etc). You can do this in the address bar in windows (right-click address bar > 'Copy Address') or in OpenIV (right-click folder > 'copy as path'. Give me the folder path to the 'bmws' 'dlc.rpf' if you use OpenIV to copy the folder path :thumbsup:).

    A screenshot of the contents of your main Grand Theft Auto V folder might be of use too if you can provide that :thumbsup: (hide/blank/blur username in the screenshot too if it's there).

    Temporarily remove any scripts you have installed (rename 'scripts' folder etc)

    At the moment I'm not sure what the problem is?! We'll just have to run through all the prerequisites for working add-ons (& maybe a few random ideas) & see if something shows up.

    QUESTIONS:

    • Are you using a modded gameconfig. If not, try one (make backup first). If so, which one? Try another gameconfig & see.
    • Out of interest, how did you confirm your 'mods' folder was working?
    • Even if your 'mods' folder is working try reinstalling the OpenIV plugins ('Tools' > 'ASI Manager' > Uninstall & then Reinstall 'ASILoader' & 'OpenIV.ASI'
    • Do you have any other 'mods' folder modded add-ons confirmed working?
    • Did you edit the 'bmws' dlc files in any way before attempting to spawn the bike?
    • Are these your first add-ons or have you had add-ons working in the past etc?

    Sorry, if I've asked these already (it's morning here, haven't woken up yet) but do answer them all. Given that we have covered the basics & you still have a problem it's a little unusual. I need to do some information gathering & I need accurate, detailed information about your setup to diagnose :thumbsup:
