The Beta Topic


Recommended Posts

EDIT: I noticed that Beta LCS (PSP) had poor draw distance (look at the trees in the background) and textures

Nothing unusual - this is a PSP game... If you knew how R* Leeds have perverted system of the map in Stories to make it works fast on PSP - you wouldn't even be wondered why draw distance is so low. :)

is this beta rifle and misson

That's the normal PSG-1.

I'm not sure about the mission, though it is one of Salvatore's I believe.

Hm.. don't remember such cutscene, but this is certainly beta Toni on the 2nd screen

Not sure if it`s just me but...

Sorry for large size but I think it's better for us to compare.

Anyway, from left to right - Promotional Screenshot, PSP and PS2. Seems like the lighting was downgraded to hell in both PSP and PS2, plus they also removed the light emmiting from that lamp on the right near Vicenzo's head.

Promotional screen edited in Photoshop obviously.

Is it, though? I mean, another shot of the office seems to have some obvious editing, but I don't think this one was completely photoshopped: why would they photoshop the light on the wall? That wouldn't increase sales or hype, would it?

Maybe. Photoshop is very noticeable on official screenshots. They always try to edit lighting, add custom shadows which we never have seen ingame, also they try to smooth angularity of their models (very noticeable on official VC screens). But anyway LCS had not so big budget and devs seems to be not bother yourself to fully editing screens.

Just because we don't see graphic feature X in the final, doesn't mean that it wasn't there in development. Shaders, lighting, models, textures, etc are regularly tweaked and modified to meet memory and processor constraints during development. This should especially be expected to happen to a mobile game.

 

Watch Dogs is an example of this. Many claimed that the E3 debut was pre-rendered/edited because a bunch of graphical features never appeared in the final. Turns out, the features are still in the game -- just disabled.

 

EDIT: Not to mention some of this stuff could have just become bugged over course of development. See San Andreas and Silent's patch.

Well, it's called beta for a reason :p (And I think that's a Mexican Wrestler Outfit, not a Superman Outfit)

 

Hey, Son of A Big Boss, this might be useless but I'm really curious, could you do me a favor and apply Mr. Vercetti's textures on the first Toni just to see how it looks?

Also is the OTHER beta vest still in the files?

1) Well, every part of the skin has their own texture, making it useless to apply Mr. Vercetti texture

2) No, only leone suit.

 

By the way, i see a lot of slots for textures, but all of them have texture saying " I am a bug, report me"

Also, Mini Cooper textures, Top Fun, Manana(corpse), Vice squad (the same from Vice City), Screwdriver texture, Ruger texture and icon, Mp5 long, Golfclub( probably replaced by hockey stick)

How can you possibly think it is a Sultan?

I think it's what Tycek said, either a recolored FBI car or a special cutscene-only model of the III/LCS Premier.

This one.

 

FBI car cannot be recolored, it always stays black.
