I recenty found some pictures of the beta version of GTA 2, just some sprites that are different, I have 29 pics but here are just a few (notice the respect meter and some of the guns.)

Why you think it's beta?

 

Maybe just PS versions.

 

 

I have original CD and it's case shows exactly same head (black glasses) at the health bar.

Dunno what it is.

But i don't see such graphics anywhere (in STY files).

 

I believe it's from Playstation version. Even the maps and editor has Playstation stuff left in.

But just disabled.

 

 

EDIT: i see, i opened STY file and found the heads.

Interesting stuff.

 

Anybody knows where to get PS version of GTA2?

 

 

You should ask Mike Dailly. He should know if there were any betas.

I have the PS1 version here, and played it a lot. It doesnt have those heads, also the graphics are bad in PS1 version. Probably that is just a beta version (I saw old screenshots with that stuff in Gouranga)

It's not the PS version. You can find some PS screesnhots at Rockstargames.com.

 

I've seen beta screens before, but never this size and I don't think I saw those weapons before. It's interesting to see that there's no respect-o-meter. Instead the weapons are shown in the left corner, GTA1 style. Also, note that the weapon images resemble this artwork. Like B-$hep, I have a GTA2 case with screenshots that are seemingly from an unfinished version. The head next to the health is there, but the weapons have their proper images and the respect-o-meter is present. Note worthy is that the Bulwark is called "Buick" (its script name) and that there is a six star wanted level in the Residential District.

 

Nice find, thanks for sharing. Where did you find those screenshots? And could you post links to the others?

Dunno why i haven't got it earlier.

GFX is really poor. Couldn't believe this actually.

 

Running it in emulator. Ofc i haven't tried higher res.

 

Gonna do some experiments with PS version.

 

Look at the thief near me.

He came directly to me. But i had $0.

What makes you say there's no respect-o-meter?

 

The respect-o-meter is the colored bar next to the weapon icon, the place of the faces on the bar show how much respect you have with them.

 

(See first screenshot)

 

Krishna's most respected

Zaibatsu is second.

And he's unfriendly with the Russians (centre of the bar is Neutral)

Gah! Did see it, but somehow didn't register it. blush.gif

 

 

The mission in this screen didn't made it to the final release (also worth noting: the beta respect-o-meter is still there, but the new weapon icons are displayed on the right. And the head next to the text is missing). Also, what's happening on this screen? What's that spray between the player and one of the road block cops? Who, by the way, look like the SWAT cops in this beta. Another strange thing is that road blocks appear much closer to eachother than in the final version. This can also be seen on other screenshots.

maybe its a fizzling out electro gun? or maybe its that all elusive stun baton?

if it was on the case, it doesnt mean its not beta. in the gta 3 manual the cop cars looked different but they kept the pictures.
