But still I wouldn’t doubt that the main boys at rockstar would stick around to have some kind of control over it. It’s not like they would give Leeds the keys to the kingdom and say “do whatever you want”.

 

Curiously enough, I like to think that VCS was rockstars testing grounds for a protagonist who you’re supposed to feel for, kinda like Niko. Vic’s story and motivations for doing crime things was pretty different to the rest of the protagonists before him and not too unlike Niko’s after him.

Maybe VCS and GTA IV were written very close together, so Dan Houser was in the "state of mind" to write a more serious, down-to-earth story where you care about the protagonist, so he could write for GTA IV. VCS was only released 2 years earlier because it was a simpler game in an engine that Rockstar has used for years.

Sorry for off-topic question but when do you think development of GTA:SA started?

According to the (fantastic) book. Jacked: The Outlaw Story of Grand Theft Auto, it’s development or talks about it started literally after Vice City’s release

Crazy, was RAGE a factor back then?

I think at the time, they where using the Renderware engine, but it was similar to Bully and Manhunt.

Anybody here knows where can I find The Dead Fish - Shallowlead (2007) ?

According to wiki it is one of those cut beta tracks for GTA IV.

I can't find it on the internet.

Found this comment on this video about unused wasted music. Very interesting, yet as usual, should be taken with a grain of salt. It doesn't seem too impossible though, seeing as how V had ambient music during gameplay.

Yo somebody mod that sh*t in. That actually sounds pretty awesome.

Nope. Still can't find it. Strangely this is the only IV beta song I couldn't find anywhere. I have only seen it on Myspace but I guess it's one of those deleted songs. It won't play if you click it. Still there must be some players who downloaded it when it was avaliable.

You could probably ask on Reddit then since there's few searches going on for mysterious songs with no origin like here

Can you try Google Drive or Media Fire?

 

Dobble post whoops!

 

https://imgur.com/dTThPVj Is this a beta version of LC or not? If you have no clue then I don't blame you.

Attempted to replace The Journey's logo with the early one. Leaves a lot to be desired since the pause menu image with the early logos is kind of low-res.

Did you try to replace San Juan Sounds logo with the 2007 one?

Nah. I only replaced The Journey's since I usually listen to that station.

I can try if you like.

It looks like absolute ass.

1. The quality of it looks laughable next to the other logos

2. I tried to make some adjustments to it like color adjusting to make it match the other ones but it looked even worse.

If someone could link me to the source where @cctcat70 found those pause menu pictures then I may be able to do something with it.

 

EDIT: Turns out @Kalvin already did a fantastic remake of The Journey's early logo 3 years ago. Whoops.

Not really beta related but something interesting i found is that Rockstar reused textures from gta 4 in gta chinatown wars

That’s so cool. They also reused the Russian Shop storefront in Broker. Oddly enough it’s only viewable In the PSP version.

Edit (gave out way too much info): Pretty much right. Not sure if lucky guess but the music just didn't fit so it was axed in like RC2. :) 

 

Without getting in to grave detail... If you have some burning questions related to GTA IV, feel free to PM me in a private setting.

Not quite GTA IV but TLAD, a recent finding shows an earlier background colour used for the loading screens in TLAD, in the final they opted for the basic faded white backgrounds which were the same as the PC version of GTA IV, leaving TBOGT being the odd one out which changes the background on the loading screens.

Now for those with a very keen eye you might be thinking that you've seen those colours before, and yes you would be right, here's the game backing image on the Xbox 360 version of EFLC:

Found this going through police scanner files; would it have been possible to have robbed these places in multiplayer? Or were these used during Mafiya work
