Grand Theft Auto IV Beta Hunt

I'd like to think if they make a gta movie about IV that they use Jason Statham. They would have to call it Liberty City or something. Because Grand Theft Auto is already taken thanks to that Ron Howard debacle made in 1976. Warner Bros own the licence to it I think.

Nico Bellic-beta - russian actor Vladimir Mashkov

"Behind Enemy Lines"

I heard Vladmir Mashkov was supposed to be the Voice Actor but declined for some reason. Though you can clealry see that Rockstar still based Niko off of him.

I believe the similarity between the Guy and Niko was found by a GTAF member VF94 (now known as Mr.Scratch).

I don't ever remember seeing that screenshot. Link to more?

 

I'm wondering if those lampposts in front of early Perestroika were removed entirely from the game. I've only seen them in that image and this one:

Do you have a link?

 

BTW, that isn't the beta Biff. I think it's just a regular flatbed.

 

 

@above goddamn Niko has broad shoulders.

He says that he declined because he coudlnt imagine himself saying such things (probably curse words) because he never says them in real life or something.

That's not a removed jacket though, it's his beta default jacket, that design seems to be moved onto the blue jacket.

I made this pic some time ago about every known version of Niko but I'm not sure if I posted it, I don't think so.

The Feroci seems a little different, a little less-designed than the final version. The Mule seems to have different wheels, too.

The best, easiest source for this cool beta stuff is definitely the in-game TV, where there are tons of it.

I recall reading that instead of picking up them up in your car, you could actually take the prostitutes home, could that explain the picture of the hooker in the safehouse?

Is there any proof that there was supposed to be K9 units or female police officers? I've seen it on the wiki multiple times, but you know how the wikis are.

I don't think there's any evidence of animals or K9 units, but there is evidence of a female police officer in the first trailer.

Yep I have stated similar thoughts as you Yolo. My quoted post is below yours.

Despite the fact that the real life NYPD has approximately 20% female police in their ranks, Rockstar never thought to include them in the final version of the game. I would have loved to hear what kind of humorous comments Rockstar would have developed for them. I am aware of the 'existence' of a female officer in the beta trailer, but the final version of the game is what I'm looking at (there have been threads in this forum discussing this).

 

Cheers.

Adding on it looks like they used the 'uppr' and 'lowr' diff's from the male fat cops for them, just replacing the heads of course. :)

^ The 'uppr' portion appears to have breasts, though.

Good spotting Yolo. Due to the blurriness of that collage finer details are harder to see. :)

 

Where did you find the other pictures by the way?

You can find them in the game's files. They're usually used as generic reflections or as photographs for decoration in the interiors. You can find them in texture packs or embedded in models.

Hey guys! Recently went through the GTAIV\pc\data\maps\props\lev_des\minigame,img and found some interesting things. Take a look:

 

8wTf1rp.pngFirst I found "cj_console.wdr" which was some sort of a gaming console, imply GTA IV had Video Games like San Andreas did.

Here is a picture of the Edged face version (because there is no texture):

m35X1xD.png

H2i3eE1.pngHere is a cut Jet, there were a few varations of this model with changes like the door being open and closed, but they are all the same basic model.

b6emlT3.pngHere is a plank which I can't say I recall seeing in the final game...

oPdygsS.pngA simple spray can, Don't tell me "This is left over from SA" this is clearly of higher detail than San Andrea's model.

MXCdYfl.pngThis Tennis Table implies GTA IV was to also have Table Tennis as a playable activity.

Ogt1fVt.pngFor some reason, a random 300GB USB 2.0 Thumbstick. (Possibly for a hacking mission...?)

YyNyfwR.pngA Higher detailed Basketball hoop than GTA IV's current ones... maybe a Basketball activity with friends?

NSD8uUN.png

A huge stash of cash cut from the game (This was also probably mission material.)

foaxmL0.pngA Clock that was removed for some reason

 

 

There are also a few other things in that file but this is the majoity, (or at least important stuff.) Also as stated earlier, all files can be found in

GTAIV/pc/data/maps/props/lev_des/minigame.img

Hope you all enjoyed this! :)

nice! I believe there's still voice lines in the game that hint towards video games being a cut friend activity, and the usb stick is used in Call and Collect

That's assuming it is of Liberty City, which I believe it is. There are lots of pictures of real NYC in the files as well, but this one seems to be in-game. If so, it appears the highway wasn't added yet.

A nice render of North Algonquin that can also be found in the GTA IV artbook, and some in-game scenes.

I'm pretty sure there is a clock on the approach to Francis Int'l Airport if you are driving via the Algonquin-Dukes Expressway. It's located on the gantry after the overpass of the Broker-Dukes Expressway there.

Interesting, the Northwood Heights bridge looked different in that render (top left corner).
