2023/02/02 - TRIHook! Evo 2 Fixes!

Downloads are now available for TRIHook. This is a utility created by Dummiesman that allows patching of 4×4 Evolution and Monster Truck Madness. Without need for executable changes. It fixes a number of issues and problems with 4×4 Evolution 1 & 2 that prevent it from working correctly on newer PCs. Additionally 4x4 Evolution 2's download now includes it by default.

Unfortunately a snag was hit with getting all of the old Vales.com content uploaded, looks like we might be missing MTM2 Truck and Evo 2 Truck databases. This means that some information such as author, descriptions, and and upload date might be lost forever. The files are all there however, so not all bad news!

2023/01/29 - MTM2 & Evo 2 Patches

Monster Truck Madness 2 content is currently uploading right now. With any luck all of the Vales.com tracks and trucks should be online once more within the next few days.

At the same time dummiesman has been extraordinarily hard at work reverse engineering the game to provide an easy way for others to modify the game via DLL hooks. With 4×4 Evo 1 & 2 patches fixing framerate, menus freeze, auto POD loading and adding widescreen resolutions. These are available via Discord, and will be online soon as testing has been completed.

Not a bad way to kick off 2023!

2023/01/17 - File Recovery Continues

4x4 Evolution 2 - Tracks section is now online and working. You can now download tracks that were available through Vales.com original descriptions, upload previews, and other data have been successfully converted.

2023/01/13 - Vales File Recovery Update

Progress continues with trying to restore a good chunk of files from Vales.com, databases are now in place with the exception of 4×4 Evo 2's trucks which appears to be missing, some of the interfacing is now working as well, however it will take some time to sort through the files before downloads will be available. But progress is good, and track preview art should be up by tonight.

2023/01/04 - A blender SMF Plugin!?!?!

2023 is off to a super strong start! “dummiesman” is apparently on a coding rampage and created an open-source Blender SMF Plugin as well in fairly short order. Check it out at:

2023/01/03 - Introducing Poddy

Poddy is a new tool to better work with POD files in a drag and drop fashion, developed by one of the newest members to our Discord “dummiesman”. While development is in progress, a release candidate can be downloaded from the “Creations” section in Discord.

Website migration is still in progress, no downloads just yet.

2023/01/02 - Migrating from Google Sites (Again!)

We have hosting once more, as a result we are moving back away from a Google Sites, and hopefully a more reliable means of providing files than via Torrent's/Mega. In the mean time while we get things up and running if you need the old site, it is available at:

Happy 2023 to all you Evo fans out there!
