openFormats

The openFormats are a set of open, text-based, intermediate file formats that allows users to export/import GTA IV/EfLC resources into different 3D modeling programs like 3DS Max. Currently you can import/export openFormats files into 3DS Max with GIMS. The formats are similar in concept to .WSO files used in The Sims Resource Workshop, being that the latter also implements an intermediate format for easier resource editing.

WebIV

A special web-service called WebIV was designed and created for OpenIV. It is intended to help to developers to collect information about program usage, get user feedbacks and also for the users to stay tune and quickly check if a newest version is out.
