you guys have to understand, that not only was the game in
beta, the processors on video cards where crappier..

mx440 was top of the line.

not gonna say who, but i do know someone who had one of the
betas nearly a year before the game came out.

and it was clunky and laggy... but i could only imagen what it would
have been with a better processor /more ram/good vidcard.

I am pretty sure if the person dug around in the stack of cds.
the game could get played again and some good screen shots could be made.

Wow.. Francis International Airport was originally in Staunton? Actually when you take a closer look at the map it looks kinda awkward there... I can see why they moved it. Unless perhaps... "SOMETHING" (you all know what I'm hinting at) was there before and they had to.. 'replace' it.

Well it's not exactly a beta shot... but..

If you go onto the GTA III flash website, and click on Portland. It comes up with several things you can click. Click on the Harbour Tunnel link. It has several pictures of Darkel and those molotov throwing hobos but absolutely no information. I guess we CAN confirm the Darkel was supposed to be in there. And I think it was put there before GTA's resident terrorist was removed.

Interesting to see they still have it there after all this time...

Probably created a more dark and "hardcore" setting when they changed it.


I really like your Rodney King Picture xD

I put together a pack of beta screens (100+) that is available for download here. I've also uploaded a pack of vehicles which can be found here.

Here are some examples of the vehicles:
Vehicle 1
Vehicle 2
Vehicle 3

And these are a few early renders:

Hey, there are some beta leftovers in the game's manual! Here are the scans:
user posted image
In this scan, there are pictures of the old police cars (to the bottom-right of El Burro's leg). Also, Staunton Island has a small piece of land sticking out that is not in the final game (it is next to Misty). There also appears to be a picture of a full-winged plane (look under the runway on Shorside Vale, next to the guy's foot)
user posted image
These are the credits in the manual. In the "CAST" section to the left, look at the names and charecters. Around the end, above "CHRIS PHILLIPS as Marty Chonks", there are two that aren't in the game. There is "BILL FIORE as Darkel", and "CUTIS MCCLARIN as Curtly". I'm sure we all know about Darkel, but who Curtly was is unknown. My guess is that Curtly was involved with Darkel somehow, and once Darkel was out of the game, there was no need for Curtly.

I just noticed something in these two beta pics:

Check out the windows (in the first shot, the building is to the right of the ambulace, and in the second shot, the building in front of the explosion). The windows appear to be broken. Maybe in the beta, buildings could suffer slight damages if if the windows were shot at or something exploded nearby.

Looks more like a texture f*ckup then damage, but you could be right.

EDIT: What the hell is that next to the paramedics leg? It looks like a cop head but why is it down there?

It kind of looks like a little head, kind of like Claude's. I used to think that maybe it was a child head or something, but now I think it was maybe a glitch with a ped (he sunk into the ground)

EDIT: Check out this beta video. Near the end, there is evidence that the passenger jets in the beta were solid, and destructable! The destructable plane video.

If you're talking about that why cop cars colours has changed, I'm answering yet.
After the accident in 9/11 NYPD has changed colours of their police cars from white-blue to black-blue because of 9/11 mourning. And that's probably why are in GTA3 all police cars black-white. In question about WTC buildings, R* has almost completed all the textures, but after the 9/11 attack, they've changed it for a building area instead of two large towers. I'm not sure about this stories but hopefully I think this could be true.

What? bullsh*t. NYPD never changed all they're cars colors, that would be stupid and pointless. and as for the twins being removed, also bullsh*t. Ive been through all the beta pics PRE 9/11 and the building site was always there. They changed the car colors so it wouldn't cause any controversy and also I believe family and friends of people at rockstar died in the WTC (rockstar headquarters is based in NY)

so I don't understand anything, it's all messed up - I'm confused confused.gif I don't live in NYC so I don't know, my cousin told me that story. He's big fan of GTA. All in all it would be obviously better with twins, but not with blue cop cars.

Maybe someone could make a mod that would convert the GTA III into the beta version.

All they have to do is cartoon-ise it a bit................. or a lot

cartoony look of beta reminds me a bit LCS or VCS... on every screenshot I feel like slighty cartoony or something like a Van Gogh effect in photoshop. my last posts about this cop cars, this is probably true, with these changes but only in GTA, not in real (I was just wrong). I'm wondering why so much people so late has waked up, and searching for GTA3 beta pictures? sleepy.gif

Those school buses look better than the Bus and Coach that actually made it into the final game, IE they have seats in them and not just solid black windows

I remember an early shot where it looked like Claude had a "terrorist mask" over his head. If i remember correctly he was running towards chinatown from across the dual carriageway, and there was a Stretch ahead of him. But it might have just been his hair...

I also remember reading on this very forum some absolute BS about how cops would be invincible in the PC version because of 9/11... WRONG!, Also limb removal is much easier in the PC version (though i got the PS2 version the day it came out, and i think i remeber seeing some limb removal in it, but only from big explosions or sniping. The disc got corrupted so i can't check. I remember being really shocked when i got the PC version and shot a guy's head off with the pistol XD)
