Older /vr/ does - the ones that are actually capable of playing video games. Expect the '90s born shitters to hate it.

Never played the PSX/Dreamcast ports so I couldn't tell you but the PC versions were excellent. I highly doubt the PlayStation version was better than PC.

I like GTA1, but it has a lot of frustrating game designs. London I thought improved it by having less timed missions and of course aided by that amazing 60's music and atmosphere. Missions were overall more fun and less frustrating.

2 on the other hand was a clear cut improvement in every way, one of the best examples of a sequel fixing all of the problems of the previous game. Version-wise, the PS1 is trash and the Dreamcast is just a buggier version of the PC. PC is king for all retro GTA desu.

A friend of mine had the demo back in the day. Watched him play it for a bit, then played a couple lives myself, just running down as many peds as I could before the police took me down. Have pretty much been hooked since.

Tried getting it running in DosBox a couple days ago, but ran into some 3dfx error and couldn't be bothered to figure out how to get it working. I also still have the PS1 disc for London 69, but lost the original GTA disc at some point.

Used to fuck around these games a lot but could never bring myself to playing them "seriously" and complete missions.

The originals felt so much more chaotic than their later 3D sequels. You really felt like an agent of chaos unleashed in a large urban metropolis. The top down camera made it feel like one of those irl police chase shows. It also gave it a sort of unbiased/impersonal/documentary feel; look at the chaos this man is committing and you're free to watch it just as it is.

Plus I love the soundtrack and how arcadey the game is.


>> No.4084385


>> No.4084401

I used to love it on the Playstation, but it's a pretty bad version. The framerate is feeble, but more importantly the game couldn't really handle the last level. After a certain point it'd generally lock up if you kept doing missions so if I wanted to complete it I'd have to play safe and do boring shit like endlessly scrap cars or the game would inevitably just crash.

I expect they were done in Amiga Deluxe Paint, actually.

>> No.4084409

*Also another thing I really like about the first two is that they have a TV game show quality to them. When you start a level you hear people cheer and announcer say "GRRRR-AND THEFT AUTO!" like those television game shows do. When you pick up kill frenzies similar shit happens and the announcer laughs while you murder people, congratulates you when you win, etc. GTA2 also added the announcer voice for when you picked up weapons, pickups etc ("Machine gun!", 'Health!", etc)

I've said this on /vr/ before but every day is repost day so I'll say it again desu.

I haven't played the classic GTA games in years, but back in the days they were some of my favorite games. I didn't even play the missions, the ability to get out of the car and walk around the huge city was mindblowing enough.

I played GTA 1 with my brothers so damn much. It's one of the games that really got me interested in video games and in computing. When GTA3 came out... oh boy... trying it out for the first time was something I will never forget.

Oh yeah, I never thought it that way. In fact, I was wondering one day why don't the new GTA games feel "silly" like the OG ones did. Yeah it's probably the "game show feeling" that is lacking.

yeah but they realised their mistake with 4 and went back to the zany shit with 5.

yes 4 was a complete piece of shit and 5 was great and a return to form.

the only shitbags that think 4 was a good game were 12 years old when it came out and they didn't know any better. those same shitbags were raised on Halo/XBL and are nostalgic for that pile of shit now. they're an entire generation raised on complete shit.
>Oh merrgawwwd, mai realism.
Fuck off. 4 was a fucking terrible game, an absolute snore to play through, no creativity, half the game was a fucking tutorial and the missions themselves were utterly boring. Bullet sponge enemies weren't fun in the slightest either and weapons felt like ass. Niko was also a bellend character and his ludonarrative dissonance was far too grating for GTA. I don't wanna play as fucking Borat either.

I've noticed that there. It's a horrible board. Whatever's new and popular they will hate on for the sake of being contrarian, rather than truly judge something on its own merits. And like I said they were children when IV came out so they're also heavily nostalgic for it.

I can't comment on GTA's online as I don't play it but IV's was an absolute turd anyway that nobody ever played. Whatever V might be it seems to have a far more popular online than IV's ever had.

>> No.4085491

most frenetic, fastest, most responsive and best gameplay by far from the 3D GTAs. most satisfying weapons by far. going on killing sprees in this game was mad, SA always felt slower and a huge step down from it. best story and best protag, and best setting in terms of aesthetic. Only problem is the map could be bigger, but at the time it was great. still a very fun map to navigate and wreak havoc in. great campaign missions, too, and nicely lengthy.

of course I'm talking about the PC version with beautiful freedom of the KBM controls, not the shitty console version with the disgusting lock-on.

during uni days my friend and I would smoke up and would take turns going on killing sprees in vice city, see who could survive the longest, wreak the most havoc, all while blaring our own music over it. it was ludicrously fun. the weapons felt so damn good, especially that fucking M4 and combat shotgun. SA and 3 were okay, but my god vice city was on another level. it's not only my favourite gta but also one of my favourite games of all time. go ahead and get the dude weed lmaos out of your system you hopeless squares.

That's exactly how I was introduced to the game. Me and a friend were watching another friend playing the gta demo, having no idea what it was about. We saw him steal a car, run over the passenger, then have cops come after him only for him to get out of the car and mow them down with a machine gun. My friend and I were like, wait did that really just happen? It was mind-blowing at the time, hadn't seen anything like it.

Friend let us borrow the demo disc and soon everyone had it. As kids we used to compete to see who could get the highest score in the time limit of the disc. I swear even that was stupidly fun. Actually I think we had more fun with that than when we finally got the full version of the game. Actually playing two player deathmatch on lan at my friends house with his connected computers was the best.

Driving in Vice City with keyboard is absolutely piss though. I don't see how this can hamper anyone, unless he is severely mentally redundant (which in fairness you probably are). Analog driving makes a negligible difference, hardly one I'd write home about. Vice city's driving is arcadey and shallow as fuck; you're not playing a fucking racing sim. Meanwhile the benefits of kbm run and gun far outshine the utter shitfest of gta vc's crappy lock on system with a disgusting controller. Also gta sa allowed you to look around the car with your mouse while you drove.

Btw I owned every 3d gta iteration both on console and pc. It's really not a contest. Controller does not touch playing with kbm, this shouldn't even be a discussion, but alas I am on a board filled with absolute idiots whose gameplay is undoubtedly the equivalent of absolute wank.

it would take away most of the game's unforgiving difficulty, which is one of the good and definitive things about the game. free aiming would make the gunplay effortless and turn escapes into a cakewalk

straight aiming is perfect for this game. it also justifies the doubled multiplier for every next consecutive hit - getting 5 hits in a row is rewarding both in score and in effect

>> No.4089242

there are some key differences though
it's much easier to get killed in GTA1
you have only one attempt at each mission per game, unlike in GTA2 where you can retry as long as you have the gang respect
missions themselves require a bit more focus in GTA1 than in GTA2
also not every mission is available from the start and whenever the player wants. depending on the city, some missions might come one after another (back to back, no intermission for the player), or are unavailable until you attempt some other missions prior

Good to hear I'm not the only one.
Yes I did.
I don't have an account there though.
The game does that itself.
You can enter a specific value into the text box and it'll stay on that value.
You can also close the program once you don't want to make any more changes since most of my code is assembly that's directly injected into the game. All the program then does is change values.
Changes will revert back once you restart.

I think it's mostly done. Tested it and I don't have any more crashes so I'd appreciate it if someone can test it.
I've made it with GTA 2 11.44 but I think it should work on other versions as well.

Awesome, really looking forward to trying this later, thank you.

If you get a chance make a github/gitlab for updates or bugs to report. This also helps anyone who wants to attempt a fix for the shadows (personally I think they're a little too much even with the default camera distance)

>> No.4091349

Eh, I'm not gonna bother.
I just threw this together since I wanted a less zoomed out camera in a few hours. If you find any bugs you can post em here and i'll see what I can do.
As I said before, all the program itself does, is assemble my asm code into bytes, inject it and then inject a jump to my code to detour the normal camera code.
Other than that, it just writes some values to the game when you change the multiplier, disable the 0x50000 cap or the freeze value.
If you want to build up on my code the only needed stuff is the asm code i already posted as a pastebin. It doesn't have anything to do with the shadows itself though so I don't think it'll help with fixing the shadows.

If anyone really wants the source, here you go, though to really edit something you'll still need to change the asm stuff itself:

The only "problem" most people have with GTA2 is the sci-fi aspect of it. It's a great game, but what people like about GTA is the cartoon realism, lightning guns etc. are little too much sci-fi.

says the retard that thinks he's special for beating a piss mission with a controller. gta 3 was never a hard game kid. ps2, pc, controller or not, it was always piss. the point is not difficulty, which you seem to think this is about, because you're fucking trash. the point is enjoyment of gameplay mechanics, and shitty clunky lock on crap (as well as all the other redundancies of playing tps with a controller, especially a PS2 era one before dual analogs became standard) cannot compare to freedom of kbm controls, particularly in a game offering sandbox gameplay.

this honestly shouldn't even be a discussion lol. gta 3 gameplay with a controller is just utterly shite compared to kbm. I'm amazed this is even has to be argued but /vr/ is the shithouse that it is.

there are games a billion times harder than GTA3 with a controller that I enjoy much more than GTA3. GTA1&2 are far harder than GTA3, yet I enjoy both of them more than GTA3. it's not about difficulty retard. it's about enjoyment of gameplay mechanics. see >>4086394. try to understand and stop strawmanning shit like the /v/ tier bitch you are you fucking fruitcake.

Has anyone made a co-op mod for GTA1&2? Seems like co-op mode would be the first thing people would think about when they played classic GTA. It would also make the games bit easier when you have a buddy or two helping you out. The netcode in those games should technically be able to support it considering the multiplayer moders have npc pedestrians and cars populating the city just like in singleplayer. Games like GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas had multiplayer mods, but the multiplayer didn't have pedestrians on the streets because the games were programmed so that only the area surrounded by the player character had npcs.

if you have your back turned towards someone who points a gun at you, then he obviously has the upper hand on you. finding ways of turning the tables to overcome these situations is a legitimate gameplay challenge.

the abilty to shoot in any direction, while also moving in any direction with unaffected speed, would turn the main character into some unbeatable superman.

of course, you could compensate for the easier gameplay by increasing the number of enemies, but then, the game would essentially become a top-down shooter, and the feel of the original game would be ruined.

The GTA1&2 engine even supports pedestrians and multiplayer at the same time unlike GTA3, VC, and SA. Seriously, the classic GTA games should be the most obvious co-op games. GTA 1 and 2 are some of the hardest games I have ever played, and having friends helping me out would be awesome.

>> No.4140503

Shitload of reasons:
Concurrent events complicating mission code, missions themselves having to be designed for co-op, overall local networking in the 90's (would be mostly company offices or internet cafes) making it inconvenient to play for 1-2 hours of co-op compared to maybe 10-20 minutes of deathmatch/cannonball, also the general attitude of players of the time which would rather compete than be shit together at something
