The GTA V beta hunt

so in X64C, theres a file called "Gun DLC" with these images https://imgur.com/a/oF3GdIw for all the beta guns that were cut, some were released in DLC's, so Rockstar probably always intended for them to be DLC guns, and for some reason kept getting delayed

so, I found some unused outfits 
MICHAEL 
OUTFIT_P0_1 = Firefighter

OUTFIT_P0_24 = Rappel Gear
OUTFIT_P0_37 = Pale Blue Shirt, Gray Pants

OUTFIT_P0_DLC0 = Clown

TREVOR 
OUTFIT_P2_16 = Toilet

OUTFIT_P2_DLC0 = Army

FRANKLIN 

OUTFIT_P1_12 = Fireman

 

The fireman outfits were originally going to be a wardrobe option apparently

These have been found but theres a funny mistake there by the developers. Programmable AR should be Programmable Airburst Rifle actually. But they wrote it as Assault Rifle instead. I think this shows how low priority these dlc guns were in development.

Airburst... it's supposed to be some kind of anti-air weapoh ?

The XM25 which the Programmable AR is based on, is an airburst grenade launcher with programmable ammunition, hence the 'programmable' in Programmable AR.

Apparently suited to hit targets behind cover on in the ground, a task better done in-game with a grenade or sticky bomb currently.

 

The fact the grenades of the XM25 are set to explode in mid-air or in proximity would make the weapon in-game a decent anti-air weapon but I wonder how this could be done as I didn't found anything interesting on a quick search.

 

Maybe a sniper scope to tell when it's supposed to explode, the real weapon has a decent effective range apparently.

Just took a look in the PC files for the new update, the files for the new vehicles are all present but blank and empty - all <1 KB each.

Blank files for the Compact EMP Launcher also exist, maybe suggesting it was originally planned to be part of the next-gen exclusive content?

The animation files for the HSW time trial intro cutscene are also fully present (not blank), but the associated audio file that goes with it is not.

I wonder if they are indeed bringing the exclusive content to PC.

It seems like it will at some point, since Windows was recently added to E&E's ESRB listing (which makes me think there will be a separate SKU from the existing PC version).

 

Spoiler

Knowing how R* typically treats the platform, they are probably waiting until after the introductory discount for consoles ends in June to release the new version, just so PC users are forced to buy it at its $40 MSRP.

I wonder if PC players will have to pay for the "E&E" Version, or it'll be free, who know for sure now, huh?

I bet we will have to buy it again, since console owners who already had the 8th Gen version were also forced to pay for E&E (unless you count GTAO being temporarily free to claim for PS5 owners, I guess). It wouldn't surprise me if it winds up being a 6 month+ timed-exclusive to the R* Launcher, either, since the Trilogy DE has still not been released on Steam or the Epic Games Store.

Here is a throwback. Remeber devkit build? Especially the WWFM placeholder mix?

On 8/29/2017 at 2:01 AM, Ash_735 said:

From the details we've gathered so far on this build, it's a QA build from June 2013 from Rockstar North, most of the dev tools have been removed from the one we got so this wasn't used for promo stuff like screenshots, etc, chances are this will be close to the PSN leak version from August 2013, but this one (if more is recovered) might possibly contain more leftovers.

 

As for WorldWide FM on here, it's a 30 minute placeholder from one of GP's broadcasts, so this is the playlist testers got when listening to that station:

 

"

" by The Funkees

"

" by Natalie Duncan

"

" by Joe

"

" by The Invisible

"

" by Lewis Taylor

"

" by Alice Russell

 

edit: Most likely case for this is that Rockstar asked Giles Peterson to do a new mix closer to release date since other stations (FlyLo FM) are not in their final mix form and contain some differences.

Well, my friend Banjo tracked down the broadcast used for this placeholder!

https://www.livesetcloud.com/#!set:50bbdc15e4b0bec1138618db

 

According to Ash the placeholder was up to 30 minutes, but I personally feel like it went for few minutes longer, as it would be a weird cut and I feel like it went to the 40 minute mark.

 

Also small correction, The Funkees song was used only as a bumper, alongside of other songs Ash didn't mention:

  • Janko Nilović - "Funky Tramway" (1975)
  • Love, Warmth & Affection - "Talking 'bout Love" (1973)
  • Ibrahim Maalouf - "Missin'ya (Night in Tunisia)" (2007)

 

Bonus """fun fact""" Gilles mentions Maffakamann in the aforementioned first 30 minutes. It's all connected!

Looks like in-game Johnny's normal head has the medium LOD model still intact, the same model was used for the lod of his other head. intresting and unintresting.

Thanks for the shout! To add to it, the broadcast also features Flying Louts as a guest, as well as three tracks that shows up in GTA V (Forgotten Notes, Getting There & See Thru to U on FlyLo FM); It's all way too connected. This makes me wonder now what was different in FlyLo FM's mix as mentioned by Ash or if it had a placeholder, but i guess i'm a bit too late to ask that haha 😛

Re-edited because Ash mentioned the mix has differences

Thanks for reply.
But that's definetly him even that typical trevor/dan houser writing style of antagonizing others is exactly same as phillips, there is also a guy in diamond casino with weapon telling  the crew to go  after the vermin into the office, that was also definetly him. 

i also noticed one of the bounty hunters in magicians for sport. the guy who threatens trelawny when arthur and charles get to the braithwaites shack. sounded just like the laramie gang leader. i honestly don't think its trevors actor. there might be a slight similarity. but there have been many times i watched a movie or tv show and i think i recognize an actors voice. just to find out its not the same actor. i remember before rdr2 came out. people thought micah sounded like trevor.

I'm not sure if anyone still cares, but I still have that FlyLO CarsonGT has posted along with his (now deleted) YouTube video featuring diverse voice lines for cut missions (including the Sharmoota Job). Are we still allowed to re-upload these somewhere, or is this a huge no-no, seeing as how T2 treats this community?

The FlyLo mix is pretty much the same as SoundCloud version, only missing Flying Lotus.

I wanted to confirm that. All the songs are there, tho it cuts back to a segment of Lowdown after Garbage, sadly without any new parts.

 

 

God damn, I wonder where we would be if the devkit stuff didn't leak and was kept under the wraps.

There definitely would be a lot of new stuff, it's a shame they never released the GXT2 strings as I think that's something really important, it can show cut mission objectives, dialogue etc, or just other misc things like clothing

 

Remember this for the future everyone, when you find a beta version of a game - be sure to look into text strings and audio first and anonymously dump as much as you can for the public to use

 

As one of biggest beta Hunters in WATCH_DOGS community, I can definitely tell you that cracking text strings was one of the best ideas, considering the game had unused strings of missions and story prototype from 2011, only pains me that I can't do the same thing with GTA V

Hey guys, so it's been years since that devkit debacle that happened over here and my memory isn't great, but did Carson ended up posting any screenshots of the game? or was all that just audio and text strings?

The build was half broken/corrupt ed. He never posted anything gameplay-wise. Not to mention, his friend (the actual owner of the build) wanted to fix it to get more attention and raise the value of the build, to sell it later. Instead of getting more money, they got T2 on their case. Nice attitude... Maybe it's true when the say you reap what you sow. If they were intelligent enough, they could have easily made a fake identity and post the  image of that devkit's HDD from a public connection, so we can all enjoy it.

To sell it later? why just not upload everything in the exact moment they got their hands on it? what a dick!

Worth to add that it also made people too damn scared, if you ever see a rockstar devkit being sold you shouldn't really pay attention to it because there's a 99% chance the seller already removed everything that was on it or extracted it for himself (and won't release it publicly because he wants to avoid take two on his ass), I bet one of these guys is playing a beta build of GTA V rn

It's either greed or clout getting in the way of that stuff. Sucks.

From what I know the review copies are 1:1 as retail version so it doesn't really matter (unless I'm wrong of course)
