But back to the main topic, wouldnt it be possible to make a .bat/.exe file that completely automates the process?
Like maybe something like this...
Code: Select all
regedit /s carthief.reg run gta2.exe wait untill gta2.exe is closed regedit /s carthief-undo.reg close itself/this window
And i assume overwriting the registry would set the map, sty, scr and save to those values just as if they where entered manually in the manager? Not a very big drawback if so, as long as skip frontend is enabled or disabled accordingly.
And if waiting commands arent available i guess it might work without too? Edit the registry first, run GTA2.exe and have it use those values while during the game it sets skip frontend back to off and discretely close it. Assuming registry changes to the manager doesnt screw with the game, and gta2 can properly load the data before its overwritten again, hm... Sounds rather gimmicky. :P
