Similarities between CW and IV

Recommended Posts

So, I thought it would be really interesting to see all familliar places both in CW and IV renditions. Of course a lot of things were changed due to DS liimitations, but nevertheless you can see all these little similarities here and there.

 

I'll begin with Huang's safehouse:

Yes...!!!

 

 

I would contribute, but I don't have the resources.

About that picture, it's almost the same, but there are no garage at IV's rendition.

 

I would certainly help with the IV part, but that would be useless since I don't have a DS...

Or an emulator ph34r.gif

p.s. Better play on emul, I like it more icon14.gif

I believe emulator talk is not allowed on the forum. Please support Rockstar and actually buy the real version of the game(DS). I heard they have been working 2 years on the game?

Nice one!

But you have right to play on emul only if you own the copy of CW

Another famous place: this time it's from "Uncle Vlad"

The thing is that for some reason the bridge starts near this place and not goes over it... but it's pretty much the same location nevertheless.

I don't know, I'm going to the USA on April 15th. If the DSi is released by then, I'm gonna buy it.

 

Nice pic, Jackoozy! CTW is growing on me biggrin.gif

 

EDIT: I couldn't help myself. I bought CTW off ebgames.com and downloaded the emulator. That makes my ROM legal, right? Next step: Buying a DSi because it runs kinda laggy.

 

EDIT2: I got some obvious, that I think that you don't need a IV pic:

Thanks, Vinny! Nice pics you got here.

 

Some interesting facts

1. Roman's depot is repaired now

2. Faustin's Mansion doesn't resemble the one in IV

3. FDLC is still there smile.gif , but I couldn't find Karen's home...

That's fair enough imo.

 

But let's stay ontopic smile.gif

Too bad this emulator lags a lot, otherwise it would be a lot better.

This place looks just like in IV! I wonder whether there's Packie's house.

 

PS: I'm currently using No$gba without any lags...

Yeah, if I get rid of this lag, then it's gonna be a lot more enjoyable.

 

I'm currently looking for the safehouses, gonna post pics later.

Um I'm not sure if this counts but CTW has a mission where you kill Lost club members

 

That was kinda cool to do smile.gif

Yeah, but we're talking about places, man

Everything is pretty much the same, but his garage faces the wrong way. And of course there are no trees in CW.

 

EDIT: Niko was there btw. During the mission called "Have a Heart" for Elizabeta. When he had to deliver dead Manny and Jay to the doctor.

Yea, bought GTA: CTW the other day, but for screenshots, I use an emulator... anyway I use DesMume and that runs perfectly fine if you change the config>frame skip to 1.

Great game and Niko's first safe house looks a bit different, you can see the door and the hotdog vendor across the street, but where did the railway track overhead come from? haven't played GTAIV for a while, I'll check it out.

The changes are mostly due to the grid like road layout which I don't mind but do curved roads really take more work to render by the DS?

Well, yeah, I think so. You see, CW's Liberty City is simplier than the one in IV and its structure somehow resembles LC from GTA 1 and 2

I was playing CTW earlier and found these, then looked them up on the emulator, blah blah and here's some more

The Beach Gate entrance

and the triton/satan/devil guy (sorry for no GTAIV pic)

oh yea...should I just put links to the photos or just show the whole photo in the reply? Some people's internet cuts out (like mine) if to many large photos are on the screen at once.

Can someone post Playboys crib? Because if I found the right place on CW, then the balcony has been removed.

I think it`s the best compromise between map size and viewing screen size. You can then bring in the sides of the map, and show both sides of a street at the same time.

 

Imagine an exact replica map from IV, to view a car the size of a CW Hellenbech then all you would be able to see around it is road surface. To then pan out the camera to get the buildings in, would mean the car being too small and the buildings being less detailed.

 

My favourite details are the memorials to Hernan and Jose in Bohan
