At least this game is over 9 years old, and I don't think we could extract too much new stuff from the files with OpenIV. The terrible part is that it will make it much harder to enable Beta features via mods, or do what Mega is doing.

At least there are some workarounds already. Still doesn't change much of the fact documentation for GIMS and such is terrible. The only reason I got that barber shop ingame back in April 2016 was because I attached the interior to the exterior model, so it had no collision or way to get in.

I'm still here. HDD guy is very freaking slow. At this point i don't even know when to expect the data. Keep in mind it's not just one build, there are hundreds of builds of other games with GTA IV being one of them. I initially wanted the HDD for some Need For Speed source/builds but he mentioned GTA IV. I was kinda overexcited, so that's why i even posted about it this early. 

 

Only update on the build i got is that it's appearently Xbox 360 and not PS3 (which is great as i have a 360 devkit in hand) and it's codenamed ''CollegeHardball2k8''.

Looks like a Beta Cluckin' Bell restroom interior, interestingly found in the Korean Restaurant files. Nothing fancy.

Image looks mirrored in the middle, but it looks like a VERY early G,L&S

Early Perestroika interior. It's brighter with different colors and it lacks detail.

 

All images were upscaled 4x for better viewing.

You are right about GTA IV being codenamed "CollegeHardball2k8". This website (http://www.xbox-skye...ad.php?t=302027) has a list of Xbox 360 games and a special code for each different game. The code for "CollegeHardball2k8" matches GTA IV's code.

Tried bringing back that beta font for the money counter. I had to photoshop the font files to replace the font used with the font that wasn't used. The beta font remains in the files in a similar form so I just had to put them in place. When I loaded up the game the characters look more spaced out than they should be - because the spacing isn't correct with that font. Does look nice though.

Plenty of unused dialogue here. Sounds like it was planned to maybe being able to play against bowling staff at Memory Lanes.

A new image that I found of the different Triangle Club sign/logo.

Only just noticed how the cut bus system would work; the bus times would show up on a pole next to each bus stop.

Found a beta map in the car interior files. Don't think it has been posted.

Map looking really different to final.

Look on Bohan top west and bottom east, two island under Bohan, top left and bottom of Dukes Island, top of Alquinin and Alderney. 

They look something different.

Yeah I've known for a while that Chinatown Wars used the old design, must have been a late decision from Rockstar to change the design.

What are those dots? Pigeons? Some sort of debug? And maybe that map was just a concept, and it wasn't actually modelled.

 

Also, I realized something: The planes flying at the airport are not aligned with the landing strip, which is unusual, even for a plane going around like those in GTA IV. It seems like they made the plane paths for the old 3-landing strips airport, changed the layout and forgot to change the paths, since their paths match the old runway angles.

FYI this map can be found in some vehicles with a static model of a GPS, like an Oracle or a Predator (the latter was even found in the third trailer and partially revealed the LC map before release).

Found a beta map in the car interior files. Don't think it has been posted.
gN4EtJ8.png

I saw this map in a boat interior, i think it was more colored than this one, the boat use the same interior texture of the cars and i am wrong, or it has its own interior texture?

 

edit:  when i posted this i was on my phone, and the map looked darker, now that i see on PC is more bright, and exactly as the one i saw on the boat, its even better tbh

I think second to left is truck dashboard that can still seen in GTA V with first person. 

 

Edit: This is how speedometer looks in Declasse Burrito Van.

Anyway it was limited to see full speedometer in first person in GTA V.

It was also anyway limited to some trucks and vans. 

Looks like it was modified with less information.

I think It's a Tropic, but some other boats have it too. It probably has no difference, as even the dots are in the same place.

After having a look, it seems all the boats use the same texture. No difference.
