GTA IV C++ Script Hook
Version 0.5.1 BETA (May 28 2010)
Supports GTAIV 22.214.171.124 and EFLC 126.96.36.199. Released as BETA, not tested extensively, bug reports are welcome (don't PM me with them, just post them in this thread).
Version 0.5.0 (Apr 16 2010)
Supports GTAIV 188.8.131.52 and EFLC 184.108.40.206.
Please note that 0.4.0 onwards comes with a new License that is different from earlier versions. Make sure you read and understand ScriptHook-License.txt before you make use of ScriptHook.dll.
This one is for all you coders out there (hopefully, there's still a lot of you)...
This module will let you create a custom script thread in C++ and have GTAIV process it along with its real scripts threads. Additionally, a type-safe manner to access native functions in GTAIV is provided.
Currently headers and a compiled dynamic library (DLL) is provided. Some very naive samples are provided as well. This is meant to be a base to build on top of. Feel free to contribute your own samples!
Please note that 0.4.0 onwards comes with a new License that is different from earlier versions. Make sure you read and understand ScriptHook-License.txt before you make use of the ScriptHook SDK.
Developing for the 0.5.0 hook: You can continue to use the 0.4.0 SDK for development, and it is not being updated at this time. An updated DevLoader is available here:
Solution/Project files in zip are for VC++ 2008. Please read UpdateGuide.txt if you're upgrading your code to work from an older version of ScriptHook.
