Grand Theft Auto IV Beta Hunt

Recommended Posts

Pastry

 

Sorry for the double post, but I feel that these should be given their own post;

 

 

 

3354_gtaiv_broker_brownstone.jpg

 

Remember how the previews said you could climb telegraph poles, well please direct your attention to the one presented in this image. You can clearly see the pegs attached to the sides of this one. Additionally, you can see the Police Cruiser in its beta form with a car number on the boot/trunk lid rather than the final versions' LCPD text. Both the PC and Taxi lack antennae.

 

4152_gtaiv_niko_arrested.jpg

 

I can't say that these officers remained in the final version.

Again, these officers are not present in the final version of the game.

 

 

 

Cheers.

ey yo uhhhhhhhh. look to the far left....

 

on the first image....

Dude, you just replied to a guy's post from 2014.

The Beta Mule in it's entirety is on the Krapea website:

Not really the entire beta mule on MP3, more alike a modified version of the original but it is using the lights like in the beta mule of GTA IV. Now you mentioned mp3, ima convert it

Lol, it definitely started out as the early IV Mule mesh. All they did was some odd f*ckery with the orange indicators - they duplicated them and added another set of them above the orig ones.

There are a lot of TV subtitles that apparently were supposed to be used.

Seems like they changed the headlights a few times before release, which is a GREAT choice like the Merit

This confirms it was actually an early Tug, not some cut fishing boat or something. Also, by importing map parts, we may be able to restore both early versions of the Tug: This one shown in 'The History of Liberty' and the one shown in Trailer 3 (which generally only has another texture).

I was trying to restore the model to vehicle on 3ds max sadly I´m having some problems maybe someone more experienced than me can do it.

I know this is not about the beta hunt but did you all know that there is an Skycar in GTA IV?

Yes, you can even ride it. And I think most people here know that. I mean, it is besides the largest bridge in the game, it shouldn't go unnoticed.

I don't think that somebody has good knowledge on how vehicles work. Most he could do is isolate the boat and maybe send that to someone who can make it into a vehicle.

Just for visualization purposes, It's probably easier to replace an oblect with this model, and then use SNT to put it over the Tug, and make the Tug invisible. It will not look good at all, but it's probably possible.

 

Also, this map model has a hole on its hull. Not that big of a deal tho.

You guys might have heard about these sad news. For a good while, we won't have any way to dig into the game's files, unless we use the ancient SparkIV or someone cracks OIV. I still have my BETA Bank here sitting, which I'm very sad about never putting ingame. But like I've said in this topic and in my post, documentation has always been absolutely garbage. To this day I don't know how stuff like MLO/setting up interiors/placing stuff in the game correctly works. I've tried to find people to help me, but always got the ''just look at R*'s models'' excuse. I won't delete the files because I'm not insane. If someone finds a way past the forced OIV update that turns it useless, I'll try to release a version of it here, and if someone reading this has interest in helping, please contact me.

 

Other than that, I was preparing a lot of other stuff for you guys when college was out. I was planning on remaking both beta barber shops, as well as a few custom interiors, such as CTW inspired Uncle Kenny's restaurant, based on the real life restaurant too, as well as others to make LC feel even more alive. Eventually, I wanted to open up some sort of workshop to release all of my work, but I'm not sure how that's gonna happen now.

I have a 2.8 standalone installer if someone wants (2.9 hangs for me when editing some of IV textures anyway, it was reported though but it looks like there won't be any more updates), just turn off internet connection and install just fine.

 

EDIT: Here ya go, hope it'll not get deleted very soon

You're a godsend, thanks. Apparently installer is online only so it wont work. But whatever, I don't want to derail the little life this thread has left.

Yeah, it's an online installer. It crashes after the first few seconds of execution because it can't download the required files (presumably). :/

Turn off internet connection then it'll go on.
I put 2.8 because of this freezing happening, you can look for 2.9 somewhere at the Take Two vs. Modding topic.

I have blocked internet access for OpenIV with my anti-virus program so I can continue to use it.

I suggest that anyone still interested in looking in the files should do the same.

Okay so here's the offline installer of latest 2.9 if you don't have it, and downgrader for it to normal 906 build (just run oviupdate.exe) so it will not show the uninstall window, also it was done so it won't require to update it back when online, enjoy.

Seems like the link is not working. It takes me to solid files and when I click download, a new tab opens, but the file does not download.
