500-watt-continuous sinewave inverters (suitable to drive anything, including all motors) are down to $AU330 or so nowadays ($US250, say); 400-watt-continuous modified square wave inverters are half that price.I wouldn't bet on a cheap "400W" inverter actually enjoying delivering more than 300 watts for very long (and power factor should be taken into account; a load with a PF of 0.7 that draws 300 watts needs a "430 watt" inverter), but you can still get quite a lot of reasonably well made inverter for not a lot of money these days. Smarter chargers may freak out if there's an inverter as well as a battery across their outputs, and the output from cheap chargers can be pretty hideous - but the main problem with them that the average cheap Chinese battery charger only has five to ten amp peak output, which isn't likely to be enough to run many normal PCs.
Today, lighter, cheaper and more efficient switchmode inverters are standard electronics-store products.
The answer ended up being a bit long, so I'm giving it its own page, rather than putting it in one of my serried ranks of letters columns.
Something as beautiful as my original DIY UPS would, of course, be cheap at any price, but the thing itself didn't cost me much.
Whats New in 0.2.6- Added support for GTAIV 1.0.4- Support for Multiplayer when in LAN (any mode), or Online (Freeroam or Party mode only)- Added a fix for world Z calculation for the Teleport sample in Sample Custom Fiber Whats New in 0.2.5- Added support for GTAIV 1.0.3- Script Hook is now a DLL that can be updated independently of the mods that use it.- Improved detection/hooking of scripts into the game engine- Fixed invocation of natives that have Vector3* parameter types - Fixed Get Global Address/Get Global Value/Set Global Value for accessing Global variables- Merged some of the Scripting native contributions back into the source (937 natives now available)- A number of internal bug fixes- Script Hook is disabled for online play (currently its disabled regardless of which mode you play in or even Live/LAN, but this might change in the future)Credits- listener for some of the REing and natives mapping- Seeman for some of the Natives documentation- Reconsider for being my guinea pig on IRC during early development- Hazard X for some cleaned up natives- sjaak327 for a lot of help with testing- All of you guys PMing and emailing me and making me find the time to work on this Hmm, I thinking, should I continue with LUA or should I start with C ?? Hmm, I thinking, should I continue with LUA or should I start with C ?? Hmm, I thinking, should I continue with LUA or should I start with C ?? I think atm C would be alittle more versatile then LUA. Alice is also a dll (like this code), and basicly does the same, but it has a more 'userfriendly' LUA interface'. The patched binkw32will load dll's into the games memory (then you can use the function of the game in your own code).
C is probably more powerfull, though I'm certain that you can make LUA work at a very low level too. C is probably more powerfull, though I'm certain that you can make LUA work at a very low level too. C is probably more powerfull, though I'm certain that you can make LUA work at a very low level too. But in the future when Alice is at version 1.0 LUA will be just as good.

I was just telling my machinima buddies that it'd probably be a good six months or so before I'd get a working Studios mod for IV. I'm super glad to see C hooks being developed so quickly (A month. Geez, with just a little tweaking, I can eventually port over most of my code from San An Studios. You might have to remove the static keyword from it to be able to do this. Use a dll/asi loader to get the dll loaded into GTAIV.
Additionally, you'll have to ensure that your VB code executes under a context of a Native Thread because some functions such as Create Car, etc are thread-based... If you need to use any natives that are not in Scripting.h, find them in Scripting Dirty.h, clean it up, and move it to Scripting.h before using it.
Make sure you read and understand Script before you make use of Script
This one is for all you coders out there (hopefully, there's still a lot of you)...
i.e., when you create a car, its attached to a script thread... You'll get some unexpected behavior if you randomly start creating cars on someone else's [email protected] Move one leg in front of the other, place it on the ground, shift your weight onto the front leg whilst pushing with the back leg, repeat, switching legs as you go. Been meaning to learn something other than VB anyway. Displaying your own strings isn't probably possible, like in SA, but how can I display text from GXTs?
Compiled dll goes in C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto IV.
