How to restore censored assets from the 2009 release to the 2019 release, such as retro advertisements (Doritos) and the original 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor model files with the original badge, grill and proportions.
ABOUT THIS MOD
NOTE: The download links in this guide are currently waiting for “game approval” over on NexusMods, as a game category for “Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered” didn’t previously exist.
The mods are uploaded and ready to download, but until a moderator approves the game category, they wont be accessible.
Once this changes, the download links will retroactively begin working and I will edit this guide to remove this note.
Apologies for the wait!
Between the release of the 2009 edition of the game and the 2019 re-release of the game, several assets had their licenses lapse, either due to budgetary concerns or laziness in porting.
– The license for the 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor that the Ecto-1 is built out of (something the original devs actually fought adamantly to get for authenticity).
– The license for several retro advertisements, such as the 1991 Doritos ads.
– Any licensing relating to New York license plates.
As a result, in the case of the advertisements, they were replaced with fictional brands, and in the case of the Cadillac, the proportions of the Ecto-1 model were adjusted, the Cadillac car badge and grill were removed/changed, and the New York license plate shape was altered.
This mod restores those specific assets from the 2009 release.
All other assets in the mod archives are unchanged from the remaster, but due to the lack of a mod manager or modding APIs for either versions of the game, unfortunately the entire modified .POD archives have to be uploaded (hence the file size).
DOWNLOAD THE MOD
Head over to NexusMods and download the latest version of my mod:
https://www.nexusmods.com/mods/1&game_id=4257?tab=files – [nexusmods.com]
NAVIGATE TO THE GAME FOLDER
Assuming that you have the Steam version; right-click the game in your Steam library and click “Properties”.
Click the “Local Files” tab on the left then click the “Browse…” button on the top-right
BACKUP YOUR FILES
You may want to backup your original files in case you wish to uninstall the mod quickly.
This can be done by either moving the original files out of the root folder, or simply renaming the file extensions. Alternatively you can also “Verify” your game files via Steam to revert back to the original install.
To rename the extensions, rename the following files:
(make sure you have file extensions visible!)
The actual extension change doesn’t matter. You can call it whatever you want, but something like “.BACKUP” will help you remember why you did it.
INSTALL THE MODDED FILES
Drag the moddified W64ART.POD, W64ART02.POD & W64MODEL.POD files from the .zip you downloaded in the first part of this guide, and drag them into the game folder.
Enjoy the mod!
