You know, the clever thing to do would be to post when you had the scans.
Yeah, yeah... someone had to say it yawn.gif

Wow! Good job, the scans may be grainy but from that it looks hell good. Notice the "Hairpin Turn" sign, I never noticed that in SA PS2 wow.gif Looks like the graphics are great!

Well, from what we seen a few days ago, the PC version won't have real-time reflections like GTA3/VC did on Xbox...

But the kicker here is, it looks like SA Xbox won't have them either, rofl. I can still see the outline of that fake wave reflection from the PS2 version. As long as the Xbox version does not surpass PC in any way, it's all good. (Well, besides the fact the Xbox will still have the 2-player co-op, unlike PC... But that doesn't really work too well on a PC anyway.)

New...or newish details:

* Like the upcoming PC version and even the PS2 version, the Xbox version has almost no loading times other than the beginning after you load a game.
* The framerate was noticably more stable than the PS2 version when the Dutch Xbox Magazine guys saw the game.
* The Xbox version will feature sharper textures than the PS2. Whether or not it will have the highest resolution textures that the PC will have it yet to be seen.
* The Xbox will feature a reworked lighting system rather than keep the PS2's version.
* It's no surprise that custom soundtracks are back, so you can put in your own music CD's and play them in-game on your own radio station.
* The Xbox version will feature a replay mode just like previous PC versions.
* The magazine mentioned that the two player cooperative mode will return in the Xbox version.

Thanks to Jelmer.

i don't have pc gamer but i have the german official xbox magazine which also has the 'first' preview of the xbox version in it, you can find it here: http://www.gta-sector.de/ in the news, but i have to update the news, because i had no time to make it perfekt i was at the doctor.. so if you want to see the screenshots of this magazine just download it there, there is a link to the *.zip included in the news posting, i will also add a complete *.pdf later this day where you can see the full pages, but it will take some time till its done

greetings from germany

Thanks a lot FuriousDevil. Finally a preview for the Xbox
version. All the information is being released. Hopefully
IGN, Gamespot or Gamespy will do a preview, too. So
we can see some high resolution screenshots for the Xbox
version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Those screen-
shots really show how much the draw distance has
improved.

previous PC versions.


The Xbox version is going to be almost as good as the PC.

This isn't the Official Xbox Magazine Preview that
has been posted on GTASanAndreas.net, is it? (nevermind I found out)*
*thanks for that [enforcA]

And does anyone know when the PC Gamer with
the preview of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is going to hit news
stands?

***EDIT***
[enforcA] I only speak English. Could you please walk me through and tell me
what to click in order to download the scans.

OHH, I didn't know you had to register, nvermind.

I'll also try to get my hands onto that Xbox Magazine since I live in the Netherlands.
If I have it, I'll scan them at a higher DPI, so the screens would contain much better quality.

Please wait until tommorow and I'll see what I can do. smile.gif

Wow, those screens are cool, and from what the other guy said about the xbox being as good as PC, thanks cause i wanted it to be the same so those people with there fancy graphics cards and high speed computers wouldnt be up-themselves when it was released. If only the german was english. What is 30 second replay? Is it a cool feature?

You'll get to see like a video of the last 30 seconds in the game (or something like that). It was a feature only available on the PC versions. You can save this video for later "viewing".

And yes, those screenshots look really sweet.

Thanks, i thought it was that but not quite sure how it worked out. It would be good to have one cause while i was playing vice city i was on a bike and i hit a car and i was flying through the air and i got over 1400degree rotation. I didn't land it though but it still counted.

Here's one of the pages that I scanned. Scanner is occupied by someone else that has a more important matter, I'll try to scan the rest a.s.a.p. smile.gif

Also the big X you see is just a water-mark, so nobody else could claim it as it was there own scan!

Gang_boy, your scans are smaller but the colors are much better. Could you scan the whole lot and post them?

As I said, I'll continue the rest of the scans a.s.a.p. since someone else is busy behind the pc, which has the scanner on it. It's too bad that I have to wait and ofcourse so does the rest of the viewers.

Just scanned at with a very high DPI and resized it so it would be readable. Else you get a enormous image you have to read (ain't that good if I might say so).

And yes, the colors are also part of the high DPI, so it gets out much better than regular scanners. smile.gif
