BETA San Andreas FINDS

Here's some more beta screenshots that I still have in my computer, I saved them from back in 2004 when the game was still in development:

here you can see what looks like a beta Journey, also the HUD looks weird.

 

Must have been very very early in development if they used part of the GTA 3 HUD.

Apparently they were going to have a Citroen -like car in the game  happy.gif  but they probably removed it for obvious reasons.

I am appalled by this. The poor quality (as well as the contrast between the high quality of the logo and the rest of the screen) and unusual angles in those screenshots aside, there appears to be Wesser's Town and Zone HUD mod around the radar. Such fiendish incompetence and petty noobery.

 

Also, this is one of the times where I wish lil weasel would appear and nag about the all-important SEARCH function, as well as provide links to topics that were created in the past that also pertain to the subject at hand. WE NEED YOU NOW! sad.gif

There doesn't appear to be any textures for the Alcatraz area of the San Andreas beta map. I guess it was probably one of the first things they cut out of the game. Or, I don't know, maybe it was never meant to be Alcatraz in the first place.

I don't think that's the point.

The reason that they removed all that stuff was to make it fit on a dvd, in beta it was 4 dvd's!

Also, the PS2 version has more sources of beta left than PC, where i dig in the files.

I found some truly messed up anims with _old after the name.

I'll get some pics.

We both know that the mod is going to die like almost every other mod posted here. I wouldn't be so happy about it.

Lol, then that's a whole lot of extra content that they removed. But it makes sense. It reminds me of what, correct me if I'm wrong, Sam Houser said in a preview for San Andreas that they had pushed the PS2 to its limits. I know that Bully used an upgraded engine but its map was much smaller in comparison.

POSTING PICTURES try to select 640x480 or smaller for message boards and forums. so as to not stretch the forum and waste bandwidth. Or use a link.

 

Considering all the fragmented references to unpublished missions it would seem reasonable to believe that it would be a multiple disc game.

As it is a beta topic what difference would it make to not believe that there wouldn't be more than one disc?

 

dozingoff.gif to me Beta = Mythic subjects anyway.

Look in this video, realy closely behind the dancing guy's leg around 0:19/0:21. You can see a dog behind him, near a car.

Not quite, considering that most things beta in SA has been proven to exist considering how much R* left in the game files.

 

Piemaster - I think you forgot the video. tounge.gif

Wow TheStranger I never seen the BETA. I want to play the BETA SA so bad but now it's not available ANWHERE is it? Someone should really make a total BETA mod. You are lucky you were able to play the beta. It actually looked like "San Andreas" on PC LOL. Cause the final version for PC was too crispy and less color intensity. I guess the one I played with my cousin on PC all day everyday WAY back in the day was the Beta version because there was sunset and crazy good looking sky and maps and etc.

I doubt it. More likely is that his Monitor has better graphic colour settings.

 

I use two monitor setup and the #2 has a much brighter/crisp colour compared to the #1 monitor.

actually if you search yourself a bit on the old preview of the games (including interview) before the release you will see that mentions of the "2 dvd's".

It would be very strange to see the Beta : it could be not what we were expecting it to be.

I believe that I once read that Alcatraz played a big part of the original script. I think that Ryder originally was to be imprisioned there or something, but I can't confirm this.

That is interesting. I've always wondered why Ryder is killed in a speed boat considering that nothing lead up to that mission concerning a speed boat. In fact, Ryder can be seen coming to whetstone in his car in the mission "Photo Opportunity".

 

Maybe Alcatraz was the place where Sweet was supposed to be held. It would make more sense, considering that having Sweet serve his time in a local police station isn't normal. Plus you can never find him in a cell when you go inside.
