    I think the only thing changed after 9/11 was the colors of the cop cars (from blue to black) and the cops themselves (IIRC they originally had moustaches), The game was esentially finished when 9/11 happened. Would definatley be interested in a GTAIII beta though, one of my holy grails

    I think there was also a terroristic mission started by the hobos in the tunnel.
    That got scrapped cause of 9/11.

    Not entirely sure but saw it somewhere.

    The beta map ive posted is refere to early 2001 so they made huge changes a few months before the games was released also gameplay wise features were cut like aiming at a dirve by GTAIII_PS2_Beta_Drive-by.jpg
    And also the island where the airport is seems strange.
    Code for fully working airplane handling (in v1.0 exe) were also cut some dude called silentpl restored it. He claimed there remains to be also basic bike code in v1.0 exe file.
    Lot of Unused models and code unforntunatly the tcrf is pc version only which seems already to be stripped down some beta lefovers
    http://tcrf.net/Grand_Theft_Auto_III_(Windows)

    Thats a lot :D
    But houser said they threw out stuff moths before so it explains that much content

    Someone knows more ?
    PS2 beta with bikes would be the new sonc xtreme :D

    maybe anybody hacked PS2 version ELF to enable debug on the console version?

    but the mobile release has 2 extra scm files, one of them has the debug menu. it can be enabled on pc with some editing which i did a few days ago, but its nothing that interesting except for a car spawner and a mission loader

    Interesting, but theres is lot of code difference between mobile and pc version.
    seems like know one ever decompiled ps2 elf. I personally believe that a ps2 beta or even alpha still exists

    PC seems to has a very crappy debug mode.
    Is the mobile one better ?

    Yes, it was almost completely cut off from the PC version. Also nothing about car spawner in this video.
    for example here is GTA LCS car spawner: http://youtu.be/lBz6jHMQtkg?t=19s

    Am not sure if this is the same thing as you're talking about, but you can do the same thing in the image you posted in the final version. All you have to do is change the camera angle to "first person" and look sideways.


    Actually there were some pretty big changes. At the airport you originally could blow up passenger jets taking off from the runway. There's a video of it and I can post if anyone wants. IMO I think there's more cut content that's just been hushed up. Plus even the cut stuff that was removed/modified pre 9/11 is also pretty cool.

    Thats a good debug ^^ cheatn around :D seems like rockstar hates people flying lc (gta 3 no helis lcs no flyabel vehicle)

    I think you meant this map LibertyCity-GTAIII-sketch-map.jpg

    Its the final map only missing the huge landmass north of LC that is inaccessible
    you mean that german commercial , that was also restored by silentpl -> http://www.gtagarage.com/mods/show.php?id=26526
    also money messages were cut -> http://www.gtagarage.com/mods/show.php?id=26361
    even ps2 loadscreen code -> http://www.gtagarage.com/mods/show.php?id=16957
    thats just the stuff that one guy discovered by dissambling the pc binarys there must be more in ps2 elf files

    ----> BIKES :D

    I was replying to dstyl about the image he posted showing ability to aim during drive bys, I was talking about the map, no worries though. I do know that the hospital in Portland was I think a parking lot or non existent at one point right?

    They were missing in alpha screens were it was really in the beginning, the drive by screen must be captured at staunto watching north i think, and the betamap of staunto seems to be complete rendererd

    DOnt know ... you can watch for a buildung that maybe suits your description at the beta map , all objects except shoreside vale seem to be modelled (see the wireframe).
