Grand Theft Auto IV Beta Hunt

Recommended Posts

sebbellic01

Look at Tunnel of Death (first mission which you shared). Shooting off logs from a truck and destroying a Patriot? Hmmm...

Wow, didn't even notice that. I'm guessing the Patriot mentioned would be the Police variant. So it seems as if you would block the tunnel with logs instead of blocking the tunnel with just the Biff. Interesting.

Searched the audio files for any mention of shooting logs off a truck in the mission, but nothing there.
The objective "Take out the escorts." isn't used as well.
Do trucks with logs attached exist in the final game? I don't think they are.

In one or two chases, there's scripted Flatbeds with logs on them, that's about it.

In what missions do those chases take place?

Eh, PS2 LCS EAN, would there be any way to contact you personally?

 

I'm highly interested what you had shown and would like to know more about it.

 

And just like Vadim said, you might really have a gem on your hands ;)

Alright, leaving salty skepticism behind, if this is true, it is a very close, if not the same version to the one used to record the

. I'm just quite skeptical because of the licence plates, as they are numbered while in all other Beta things until now, they were completelly blank or had 'Liberty City' on them (like the final), as well as the parking spots for the Helitour thing, that can be found in EFLC.

 

E: also, that coach has its brake lights on, like it has an AI. Cut coach lines?

Shadows are from the PC version, so it could be faked.

EDIT: ^ Noticed that as well...now i'm very skeptic.
They probably kept the coach in past the point of them completing the vehshare textures.
EDIT2:If this is fake, I wonder if he's using my whitewalls mod for the Esperanto, Virgo and Marbelle. :lol:

We'd be seeing holes in the map and other things I'm almost sure. Seems like a very bad fake to me, just exaggerated the waterpaint effect and that's it. Not gonna convince me that easily.

 

Edit: Interesting post by Vadim though. It's just that you do not just get beta sh*t from Rockstar. I did remember something though, I think the road has that change in TBOGT.

Yes it has, same props and road textures in the same place and everything. I even think it's possible to see Luis' white and black jacket through the Esperanto's window.

Or the just from another vehicle.. like the emperor or something

 

Though screen seems fake to me.. those models of the trees weren't present back then, right? And R* never added 'dynamic' plates

I believe they planned to have dynamic plates, but didn't bother in the end, hence why the plates were blank for a lot of time during development.

Honestly, I am not sure if it is FAKE or not.

 

This place is definitely from GTA EFLC, but there are a few differences. I tried my best to find the right spot... so enjoy.

The problem is, the graphics are different. I mean I can't enable blur or more "grain" on trees. This is an exclusive "feature" on consoles, so I compared it with GTA IV on Xbox 360

If beta build exists, then it must be a console version, because only on console GTA IV looks like a damn mess.

 

As far as I know, there is one GTA IV preview disc and two RDR preview discs. Actually, there might be yet another GTA IV build unless the story about finding R* devkit on a flea market is legit.

 

Who knows, this might be another beta build or a good mod.

There is blur on PC (disable Definition setting), it's just less intensive, especially the higher your resolution is set.

And the Dashound model can be easily taken from GTA V. As for the metal strip in the middle, it can be done by anyone with basic Blender skills.

Is the GTA IV preview disc you're referring to the one with EFLC (aware of that one), or is it another one with the actual base GTA IV game?

He's referring to the build I was offered 600 for. I talked about it a few pages back.

Yeah so it is the EFLC one, isn't actually of the base IV.

Leaving the topic of that image for a bit, re-watching the

, they mention right at the begining "...smoggy smelly germ-filled bus tours..." while showing the Coach. If that's the case and not some script, maybe the Coach's only purpose was to make bus tours around Liberty City? If yes, it would probably work on a very similar way to the
in GTA V. If that's actually the case, the coach may have been cut for the reason that the AI is not good with buses. I have a mod that makes the AI spawn driving buses randomly, and it's not uncommon to see them going into sidewalks, crashing into poles and other props and even running over people. That when they don't get stuck somewhere.

 

I also remember some very early previews saying you could take buses around the city, so maybe instead of regular buses, they were talking about coach tours?

Why do you people call this bus Coach when it's clearly Dashound? Yes, certain elements are different, but the model is mostly the same as the one seen in GTA V.

 

About that ad video, if you look closely you can notice that has a noticeable positive camber which, aside from the fact that it had wrong rear suspension flag, also means that it was slightly floating above the ground. It wasn't driven naturally while filming the advertisement, its path was scripted.

The build I was offered was a late 07 build of IV lol. It had nothing to do with this disc. Edited by CarsonGT

Because "Coach" is the name it was given up until the 3D Universe. Just look at the GTA:Liberty City Stories' version.

 

As for the scripted path, maybe the commercial actually shows why it was cut? They couldn't get it working with AI, so they scripted its path, but now it crashed into everything in front of it, like the Cab? Maybe the crash was accidental but devs tought it was funny enough to put it in the commercial?

Aside from it being traditionally named Coach in older games, the model name of the Dashound in GTA V is also "coach"
