"Ragdoll physics" is a special procedure for games where instead of preprogrammed animations, the game is able to simulate accurate physics for the body movement of characters. While it is more processor intensive, the end result is better looking and more random than predetermined animations. The open world third-person action game "Grand Theft Auto IV" makes use of the "Euphoria" engine to simulate ragdoll physics. With a special mod for the game, it is possible for players to take control of when and where to use the ragdoll physics.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Download the "Ragdoll Mod" from the GTA Gaming website. This mod is actually just a script that gives players control over the ragdoll features in the game.

  2. 2

    Right click on the downloaded file and select "Extract All." Select the installation folder for "Grand Theft Auto IV" as the destination for the files.

  3. 3

    Navigate to the GTA-downloads website and download the "GTA IV ASI Loader" program. This file is needed to load the script file for use in the game.

  4. 4

    Extract the contents of the "ASI Loader" archive to the folder where "Grand Theft Auto IV" is installed.

  5. 5

    Start the game then press the "H" key on your keyboard to enable ragdoll mode. Press the "Spacebar" key to return to normal animated mode. The mod will also make the main character go into ragdoll mode when he receives any kind of damage as long as he is not wearing any armour.

Tips and warnings

  • The ragdoll mod is tested to work on the 1.0.3 version of the game. If you experience any trouble getting it to work, reinstall your copy of the game and do not update it further than the 1.0.3 patch.
