Re: GTA V

£200 for the best Playstation 3 model with GTA5 ! Includes a Dual Shock 3 controller and some cables. Sold by my favourite e-commerce site in the UK. Price Comparison The game is nearly £50 here in the UK by itself and that 500GB Super Slim console by itself is way over £150 new. Even reconditioned...

Re: GTA V

I'd love to get some HDMI capture hardware. GTA Missions (aka BJ, don't know why) is a fun but skilled channel. He uses "HD PVR 1212" for capturing GTA5 stunt location videos , for example. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jSj0cGrfbk Amazon tells me $125 (USA) for the Gaming Edition capture device ,...

Re: Jailbreak Development

Hmm, it's an idea. Messages are visible to everyone and the code was simple, so that's OK. My remote control missiles are crashing the game a few seconds after you enter them. Doesn't matter where you drive, if you survive about 10 seconds the game crashes. :-( The code with this final objective is ...

Re: GTA2 Tile Selektor

Brilliant, it's so fast!! 'Snapping' the window size to the nearest tile is a good idea and works well. Basically it all works well so there's just a couple of enhancements I'd like, in priority order, some the same as Sektor: Remember window size, position and state for the picker from last time. S...

Re: GTA5

The car handling is more arcade style than in GTA IV. I haven't decided if I like the handling more yet. From the videos I've seen: Turning looks halfway between GTA Vice City and GTA4. Suspension seems pretty close to GTAVC, everything seems to handle quite flat and boring. Acceleration looks like...

Re: GTA5

Premium Deluxe Motorsport is like Sunshine Autos?

You could video your TV and upload it, not showing any storyline but more silly moments and physics fun. (A bit like all the ragdoll videos people posted when GTA4 first started being played.)

(EDIT) Look ma, no more mitten hands!

Re: Jailbreak Development

Counter-Strike bomb fuse is now 5 seconds instead of 10 seconds. A countdown is given at the bottom of the screen. 10 seconds was only possible in 1vs2 games if both defenders made bad mistakes and the attacker got lucky with holding the position after they respawned. It was quite nice in 2v2 so I h...

Re: Epic GTA2 Map Editor (0.6.6.6) Beta

Would you consider drawing the traffic light sprite in maps which have defined traffic light zones? The exact logic behind this can get pretty complex due to 'medians' and unequal-sized junctions. Would be super handy to preview them all in the editor instead of going in and out of game, flying arou...

Re: GTA2 Font Topic - TXT2GTA2 (Version 3 Released!)

The gap between some letters looks a bit different. Big T and small e is nice and tight in your tool but GTA2 seems to put 1px gap between the rectangle of each letter, even when that looks really 'gappy'. (There is no kerning.)

Thanks for looking into these enhancements!

Sorry to double-post but look!

I would need to know the exact maximum width in pixels to implement that. Mission messages: Uppercase R is 10x15 pixels including shadow in your tool. GTA2 running at 640x480 displays uppercase R at 10x15 pixels. No scaling to GUI text at that resolution. Russian Mafia avatar exported by Cuban Pete...

Feature request! Would you adjust this tool so the maximum background area matches the space GTA2 uses, please? That would let me create the right amount of padding for all my text quite fast. And I wouldn't need to keep swapping the final character between full stops and underscore. This should jus...

OK, OK! Tank battle objective is ready for testing. It's stage 3, after you blow up both the gates. It is combined with the Counter-Strike objective, where you place a bomb with a 10 second fuse. Defenders will be able to defuse the bomb by touching it at any moment during the count-down. Once this ...

Re: GTA2 UFO

You can't create active molotovs or grenades with the CREATE_OBJ command. There might be a way to create one type of object and change memory to turn it into another type, I just haven't searched for that address yet. CREATE_OBJ command lets you make an active ROCKET which you could change to a MOL...

Other way round. Vike's GTA lets different users have different settings on the same computer.
