Thanks man. Some you will have noticed the size of the environment section is not to full scale, I'm trying to fix that (ImageShack's at fault not the forums).

Yeah I prefer the beta version. The ferry's would have been fun coming in and out of the docks and a lot more realistic.

Look closely at the right-hand side of the screenshot; only because it is their, doesn't mean it was usable (we can dream); it could've been like helitours.

GTAIV Dude

Good, but dude...if you´ve been followin the hype of the game since the 1st trailer, you should have noticed more stuff.

 

- Niko´s face

- Niko´s hair

- In trailer 1,3rd scene. A car drives on a road and passes over a wooden plank, covering a hole in the road, in the final version, the plank is gone.

- The warehouse sign on Iroquis avenue has changed from "Stanley Fireproof Door" to "Lennie Fireproof Door".

- Niko´s tracksuit/jacket has changed.

- The cars reflection looks better in the final version thanthisearly one. Also the stairs on the wall in that picture are gone.

- Russian shop in Hove Beach was originally a Binco store.

- (Not 100 % sure on this one) In this picture, the misspelled "RESTAUTANT" has been changed to right spelling.

 

These are just some, but I can´t bother no more lol.gif

- I know Niko's appearance has changed, but It's been documented so many times already.

 

-And I know the road cover makes a noise, but I can't put that into pictures.

 

-I did highlight that, and it is with the Blista taxi aswell (look at the graphics section)

 

PS: I also forgot to add, Carmen - her ponytail was changed, I will try and add that.

You should've scaled the pictures correctly. Looks like you squeazed a 16:9 aspect ratio into a 5:4 one.

Read it again; I said they use to glow yellow but they now glow orange.

 

^ I didn't want to stretch the screen much, plus I had to fit them into these tables because of the limit the forum has on pictures.

 

EDIT: Updated character section with Michelle and Carmen. Additionally, I tried to fix the Environment section by re-uploading it and still to no prevail (and it is the same size as the others; weird).

 

EDIT 2: Finally fixed the environment section Shifty41s_beerhatsmilie2.gificon14.gif .

You forgot something, in one of the screenshots, Niko appeared to be holding colt .45 in his hand.

Do you remember what screen it was in (how old it is, what's happening in the screen?), because the stuff I've posted is partially from memory.

 

Additionally, I have added scripted events in the misc section.

Making pictures smaller is really easy, Ctrl+T, and use the diagonal way. Can't explain much better. tounge.gif

Oh, the ferry terminal isn't really proof. It could've just been shut down.

I saw it on a post like maybe a month ago, I'll try to do a search to find the picture.

It's hard to shrink pictures in paint, I've tried another good program, but you have to pay after a while; and it kept the pictures in good quality no matter how small.

Look closely (I had to get some light on the screen), it's actually an Uzi.

And here is the graphic screens enlarged for those who can't see the others that well (I don't blame you).

I """""BOUGHT"""" (note the heavy quotation marks) my Photoshop for """"FREE""" from the """INTERNET""". GIMP's similar to Photoshop, I'd suggest you try that and it's free.

Snake Without a Tongue

Great thread! But in that first pic it's Elizabetta not Carmen. They changed Elizabetta drastically throughout the developement, apparently.

 

I honestly have to say, R* wrote a check that their game couldn't cash. Still a great game, but disappointing in hindsight.

The women in the bottom left, not Elizabetha (and I don't think she's changed).

 

Here's another view of the scene:
