Reverse-engineering this game to make it look better

Does anyone have knowledge on GTA Chinatown Wars' files, file formats, how you open and edit them? That would be really nice! I still have my digital PSP copy of the game; I copied its ISO from my PSP and transferred it to my PC.

Nope. By changing the camera angle and the draw dist i guess.

Maybe you can use this as a starting point
 


Hopefully you can find something interesting with it, although it's mostly focused on the mobile version it has some support for the PSP version, about changing the angles, there's a pretty well known mod that changes the perspective to third person, perhaps you could discover something if you find out how it works, regarding the drawing distance, I think nobody has tried to modify it, besides the map is divided in blocks. 🤔

Oh man I'd pay a hundred monopoly dollars just to see a 3D remake of Chinatown Wars

Yeah but it's so glitchy. In fact so glitchy that it can trigger seizures to some people, which isnt really great. Plus it's a mod, and I can't use third party mods--that's my golden rule.

Would have been epic to mod it into a more 3D era like game! (I mean not just the camera)

I'm also wondering what software did RSG Leeds use to edit the map...

maybe there's a code that tells the game to render more blocks at once?

How do you want to reverse engineer this game, yet look down on mods? Do you not know that like 90% of mods are reverse engineered
