Dutch Elections: Mr. Wilders mod for Grand Theft Auto IV

Sunday, September 9th, 2012 by Mr.Mouse

Over at our forum, huckleberrypie took up the challenge to make a mod for GTAIV based on the current theme. The great result speaks for itself. The mod introduces Mr. Wilders to the game, and if you follow the instructions you’ll be able to spawn the model anywhere to your liking, or even have Mr. Wilders as your bodyguard. If you feel like, you can also change your players model to his and play as him through the Liberty City underworld. See a YouTube example here. Or here. And here! To download it, and read the instructions, go here. Some more screenshots:

Dutch Elections: Mod for Fallout: New Vegas

Friday, September 7th, 2012 by Mr.Mouse

As those of you following the Game Research Forum closely will have seen, some of us were (and are) working on mods for games, getting those 6 political party leaders into games. Well, the first one was released, with great work of dragbody and a bit from yours truly. We placed Mr. Sammos, Mr. Nilders, Mr. Rumor, Mr. Mech-Told, Mr. Bamu and Mr. Rotten in the game of Fall Out: New Vegas. Go to The Strip in the game after installing the mod and you will notice a group of men, with Mr. Nilders not really participating in any discussion. That’s them right there. Also, go to Goodsprings and in front of the General store there will be a footlocker with masks to put on, turning you into them! ;-)   Download the mod here.

How to run Fifth Element in Windows 7

Monday, August 13th, 2012 by Mr.Mouse

If you ever wanted to install and run The Fifth Element (1998) on Windows 7, then do the following.
Option 1. Copy the content of E082-008soda to the installation folder of T5E.
Option 2. Add the parameter -D3D to the start-up of the game (using a new short-cut).
Then change the name of dbghelp.dll in C:\WINDOWS \system32, AND in C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64 (if you have x64). You can change it to anything other, just make sure the game can’t find it. Thanks to RUTracker.
