That ped is one of the pharlem peds, I believe. The wheels on the Futo.....either they look more like Watanabes, or they look different due to the dull chrome all the cars had with that early timecyc.
My conclusion with the radar/mouse cursors on some of the pics is due to R* being lazy, or just thinking people will never notice them.

Still been searching through the files. Found a few more interesting things:

Very early middle park?:

This is very interesting and shows how early into the game this texture was made. There were basically no skyscrapers to that side and no trees in Middle Park, the clouds were also different and volumetric. I guess the same thing can be observed in the GTA V trailer/screenshots.
This screen must be dated what, late 2006 or 2007? ph34r.gif Nice find.

Edit: Here's my contribution. Does this ped exist in GTA IV?

Are other phone photos at that resolution? Will all the car theft pictures you get texted there might be more beta details in the backgrounds.

I dont know. I play on PS3. Ask someone who has a copy for PC to extract ALL textures for you.

I will. I mainly posted the ones that I thought were interesting or noticeably different. I'll post them up real soon.

Plan on uploading the car theft photos real soon. You'll have to stick with me because I don't have much spare time to work on this. In the meantime, here's a few interesting things I found while digging through:

Liberty City:

Bathroom:

Building in the background seems a little funky:

An example of Rockstar leaving the mouse cursor in front of the textures/pics:

Industry somewhere in Alderney:

Btw, I'm trying to find the texture for a calendar that hangs in some offices. It has a picture of the old casino in Alderney, but I can't seem to find it. If someone could share it I'd be grateful.

Some of this stuff is really cryptic. I don't know why, but it's just really odd.

Hmm, I remember this thread (posted 3 or 4 times here).

Does seem pretty cool actually. GTA 4 is probably my second favourite beta game after GTA 3, some of this stuff is sort of weird with the unused textures. Don't know where the hell they were gonna be used. :-S

Wow that's really an interesting find there codyr783, i'm hoping for some more of those beta files and I surely think there might be more in my opinion. But who knows?

Sorry for the crap quality of the picture, I took it two years ago for another thread, but is this the calendar you're referring to?

Notice the piece of land to the right of the casino in the background? That's not there in the final game, but the landmass does appear on the beta map texture. It must have been some kind of small countryside that was removed from the game. Do try and find the texture, though. Even if it's a smaller image, it'll be of higher quality.

EDIT: The view from the final version, for comparison.

That's the one. The only reason I remember it is because I saw your thread a while back. What interior is it located in?

It was in the management room of Maisonette 9. It could be in other locations, too, but that's the one I know off the top of my head.

Funny, looking back at the original post I made, I asked if someone could find the texture for it, and that was 2 years ago! Maybe now someone can find it.

Oh, well that explains why I couldn't find it. I don't have EFLC anymore, just vanilla. Surely someone on here has it and would be willing to share it.

EDIT: Here's some more finds.

I'm still not understanding where you're finding these pictures. All I can find are 3D models of things.

I'm using SparkIV to look inside the IMG files. The .wtd files are what contain the textures. Anyhow, here's some more stuff. This time from the Weazel News website.

Where is that interior, I have never seen it before. And the first pic with the square radar could have been on board the ferry.

Been a while since I've updated this. Found a few more goodies:

 

bm_bustimes3:

SFM4uTt.png

Leftover of the scrapped bus system. Note what appears to be a differently colored bus. A few other bus schedule related pics are in the files as well.

 

gb_jewellers_env:

rRFnYZP.png

Another example of the square radar. Unknown interior.

 

gb_barbershop01_env:

pPkXTZ0.png

Speaks for itself. Note the square radar again.

 

sightspicplumber:

PGkgxYn.png

Nothing really early here, though you can see they forgot to place in the overhead sign.

 

Pinball!

CH6QMKu.png

Animation for playing pinball. Found in anim.img.

 

That's all I've been able to find. If anyone has anything else, feel free to share.

I mentioned that somewhere before, but in the policedb.wtd file in the pc/textures directory, there are lots of hidden and unused profile pictures. I can't upload them due to it being a lot of them.

I found these inside the wtd files for the phone a few months ago. It gives a better view of the barbershop and possibly an unfinished liquor store interior. They must have been taken extremely early in development, since Rockstar said Niko would have limited customization as far back as 2007.
