Makes me want to play Advance so bad. It's the only GTA I have yet to complete and the only reason I have not done this game yet is because it's for Gameboy Advance and I don't own or want to own that. I've always been wishing this would get an iOS/Android release cuz I liked the III, VC, SA, and CTW Ports a lot and finished all of those recently.

 

Maybe it's time to look into the GBA Emulator so I can play this game to 100% once and for all...

Nihilist.

I really love the idea - GTA Advance is probably (or not really probably) the most underappreciated GTA game and to be honest, it's the only one I couldn't personally enjoy. I gave it two chances and both times, it felt just wrong.

However, it's just a perfect base for a mod - no dialogue audio, no major city tweaks and changes, relatively simple missions and only few characters, really. I wonder why no one even tried to recreate GTA Advance before - I mean, it's 9 years since its release now.

So, it's great to finally see someone trying to make things right and recreating this simple game as a mod. We've got plenty of LCS projects, but sadly, most of them were abandoned and unfinished, so at least, we can have Advance as a substitute.

And while the entire idea behind the mod is great, the practical part of the development kinda bothers me. The first thing I've noticed is, you try to replace textures with more colorful and bright ones. I understand that GTA Advance was made specifically for a [email protected]#$ing Nintendo handheld console, but even the original is darker and less "happy". Of course, it's your vision, but as I mentioned before, GTA Advance do not introduce many changes comparing to LCS/III, so I'd recommend to skip that part for now, focus on more important stuff and see what people say about your style and the city's new overall look.

Same thing with your custom materials and models (billboards, Diablo Stallion's rims, etc.) - these things just do not match the original GTA vibe and will cause you many problems in the future. First of all, if you replace one set of rims (now, one of these have probably more polys thatn the entire Diablo Stallion :p), it'd be logical to replace the rest - right? Yeah, of course, but it requires some time, which you could spend working on something more noticeable and useful - like missions or whatever.
All these ads and billboards look good, but again, some percent of all textures would be overhauled, the rest no. And here's the dilemma - should you keep it as it is or work on all textures in the game, ending with GTA Advance HD?
I think it'd be the best to keep the original Liberty City from GTA III, adding some elements from LCS, since GTA Advance takes place between these two games and just move forward. But that's just my opinion.
At this point, it's more like "my vision of altered GTA Advance features" than regular GTA Advance port. I respect your effort and work, so don't get me wrong - I'm not trying to be preachy, pricky nor picky here.
I'd love to see missions and activities instead of new textures and models - after all, that's the heart of (almost) any game and that's certainly what people will want to see first.
Anyways - good luck with the project! I keep my fingers crossed for this one and I'm looking forward to experience GTA Advance in 3D, with all its advantages. I think if you release the mod, it's gonna be a great reason to pick up GTA III again.

I believe Ash or Silent (one of em) found a way to include animated txd files into the game. you might want to ask silent about that for the fresh meat sign

hey man, thanks, that means a lot

 

i dont think that we will ever see a official advance port

the original gta3 is way too dark and moody for advance atmosphere, so i have to do it this way. you can always disable my enb settings, and play it with original gta3 brightness/colors if you want ;)

its just onepiece's hd rims. i had to use them so i could get that diablo stallion rim. thats all.

 

All these ads and billboards look good, but again, some percent of all textures would be overhauled, the rest no. And here's the dilemma - should you keep it as it is or work on all textures in the game, ending with GTA Advance HD?

 

its not hd, or going for hd. you may not realize, but apart from billboards, the textures are in 3d universe style. because they are new, you think that they are hd or something. well they are not.

 

as for billboards;

 

they have to be in hd reso, otherwise you will not be able to read them. you cant even read them ingame, thats why i include textures for them with screenshoots.

 

I think it'd be the best to keep the original Liberty City from GTA III, adding some elements from LCS, since GTA Advance takes place between these two games and just move forward. But that's just my opinion.

 

between lcs and gta3 / gta vcs & gta vc, there are tons of unnoticed changes. literally tons of. and i havent even started doing mine buddy.

 

At this point, it's more like "my vision of altered GTA Advance features" than regular GTA Advance port.

 

its not altered. these additions of mine needed for the timeline of events. you need to see that new building development (which replacing doll house) in order to feel that it is 2000, and not 2001. we need these things.

 

Anyways - good luck with the project! I keep my fingers crossed for this one and I'm looking forward to experience GTA Advance in 3D, with all its advantages. I think if you release the mod, it's gonna be a great reason to pick up GTA III again.

thanks for all the critism, i need to know what right and whats not.

 

BTW;

 

Here is my latest finding of BETA version of GTA Advance/cancelled port of GTA3;

Do you guys think that i should include those beta missions and characters like Joey and Salvatore?

 

And as for gif; its really early to care about. lets leave it to much later ;)

I've literally never seen the word "Restourant" used in a serious context. It's always been "Restaurant" for me and the rest of the states.

the cutscene drawing is just an artwork illustration, just like sal's artwork, where he is just a fatass ;) check ingame pics of the car, like you should've done first bud.

Just make it 512x512 and it'll be all set. It's of little sense to make it HD when the models are blocky imo, unless if you're going towards the task of remaking LC as a whole.

Which countries call restaurants "restourants"? This is the only instance of it I could find.

 

 

But yeah though, the trashmaster wheels look like they'll fit the Diablo Stallion fine if you want positive thinking.

alright alright..

 

gather around guys i will say something about this 3dera-hd thing, and i want it to stop. because we are spamming the topic with this.

 

from now on i will use 256x256.

 

as for the billboards, you decide.

It looks more III-ish that way..but you have to do one more thing. Set the color quality to 256 colors for a more III-ish look.

Something like this:

 

Xu3x4KW.png

256x256. Looks much more III-ish to me.

IGyGMmr.png

128x128 is also a good choice for billboards who don't need much detail.

 

 

And by the way, the mods that were taken down because of the low quality had a REALLY LOW quality. III's quality is just perfect for your project.

My post is not meant to criticise your work in any way. It's just an idea you could consider. :)
