Description
Created for renderware img archives. This tool is being redone thus had to be removed.

An alternative can be found here by fastman92 ; http://www.gtagarage.com/edit/?item=details&mod=20552

These 2 tools will sort the img file against the IDE list order pretty much how Steve M's COLED2 sorts the COL file against the IDE file.

There are many reasons why it is best to sort your Img files in this way:

1. To find files in the img file not listed in the IDE.

2. Speed the game engine up as less sorting is done in memory before an object is spawned.

3. Loading time speeds up.

4. With bigger mods like SOL it helps to have all the img files sorted in order and as a result speeds the engine up.

5. You decided, this method has been argued around GTAF for years and was originaly pointed out by G-Force of Myriad Islands.


Important note; I left out the config.txt file for a reason as the install path for your game may be different to mine.

To make the tool work for you create a file called config.txt with notepad in the root of your Mod or Game install and Edit/Add the following line and save.

[CODE]C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTAVC\[/CODE]

The file path has to be to where the Mod or Vice City is installed on your system.
