Sunday June the 27th:

Hi.... i've fixed the problem with the counter because somehow it was set back to 6000 when it should be 7000 so somehow it lost 1000 visiters but were in the 8000 now so thanks for your visits and keep voting :-)

GTA Get That Azzhole

Azz has update GTA Get That Azzhole with some very neat news about the delta's in GTA2....this is what he has heard from a very reliable source:

I think the format's a bit different, so the delta's won't really work the same way. But that was true of GTA London with the flipped doors. Cars have doors on either side, no side deltas that I'm aware of. It looks like the corners smash. I think there are some headlight deltas, brakelight deltas, smashed windows. I think that's about it.

The actual car bitmap sizes are similar to GTA. The average car is no bigger or smaller than an average GTA car. I haven't seen any editing tools so I don't know what's going on with palettes.

This all sounds very very neat...i like it if there will be brake lights and smashed windows...i like it a lot!!! Aww i just can't wait :-))

GTA IRC channel by Mugwum

I got this from Jeh over at Xtreme Getaway:

"In my attempt to get a jump start, I've gotten the GamesLink IRC people to allow me to have an IRC channel (at #gta on irc.gameslink.net). Drop by and enjoy the fun sometime and give it a news mention :)"

You will need a IRC client to use this channel, you can get it at mIRC

Insane Games GTA2

I saw this posted on Insane Games.com its a really really short article but i thought i'd post it because its GTA2 related.

GTA 2 ?
The sequel to controversial racer Grand Theft Auto could kick off Take Two Interactive's newly annouced consol label, Rockstar Games.

Currently being developed by DMA design, the chaps behind the enourmously popular original, GTA 2 fits the bill perfectly because the new brand will only house the US company's flagship console releases.

You can also send me news through ICQ i don't mind, every little GTA news is apreciated thanks. Also please vote for this site at the 2 site ratings, GTA SS Site ratings and GTA Top100 Count Down wich just started, lets make it a good start shall we? Just click on the 2 vote buttons on the left

BBZilla famous message board

I got an e-mail from Mouse that Boardzilla the message board had been moved because this one's a little better and easyer than the other one. You can now check out BBZilla at: http://gta.gameforum.com/cgi-bin/Ultimate.cgi

This is what Mouse also had to say:

I'm tired of all the arguments and immaturity, this is just getting like old days again. Don't drop to their level. Please, for my sake, don't make it happen AGAIN.

GTA Get That Azzhole

Azz is thinking of redesigning GTA Get That Azzhole again because some other GTA sites are using the same colors, black with silver etc. He may be getting back the old design but with different colors.

Uncle Fu's

The new site of  SAJMAS has got a new name cald Uncle Fu's, i've read on G that it still needs a new banner so maybe you can help out.

GTA City

I've already seen a preview of this site when it wasn't opened to public and it looks pretty nice, i like the font type.

I'm working, at the moment, on a cars edition of the GTA City newsletter. It will be sent to everyone on the GTA City mailing list [sign up at GTA City]. It will include a lot of new cars [attached to the newsletter] and will mean that instead of having to trawl through all the sites looking for new cars, they get sent to you with your e-mail. The only problem is that I don't have many cars to send at the moment, so if you make cars and are interested in having your cars sent to loads of GTA Fans, please e-mail me [gtacity@geocities.com]. Also, while I'm at it, I've just started up a new GTA site, called GTAutomatic and it's at gtautomatic.findhere.com. It's not finished yet - but it will be soon. It's set up to run almost automatically and has a lot of features including Message Board, Free for all Links page, Search Engine [submit any Sites, TCs or projects!] and more

Be sure to check out the GTA2 site on July the 1st for more very cool downloads

Acually its not worth doing todays news because well....there isn't much news, i've posted that about the GTA2 movie but that was already on yesterdays news, just thought i'd give it a shout. Well hope to have more tommorow and maybe when i run into some news tonight i'll post it.

But for now thanks for visiting.

Saturday June the 19th:

GTA2.com Preview Movie

I have noticed after looking at the www.GTA2.com site you can download the complete movie NOW in Real Audio and its a fairly small file for the full movie, its about 17mb and i'm downloading it now. If you want to download all the movies in Quicktime the movie will be much bigger, but does have a better quality than Real Audio. You can't view it online you first have to download it to see it.

Team AlphaII

Team Alpha II has been updated yesterday, nothing really special but you can check out they're new design wich looks very nice.

3D Action Planet GTA2 First Look

Jeh informed me to take a look at the 3D Action Planet First Look about GTA2, it has some new things but some things we already knew. You can check out the full article by going to 3DAP GTA2 First Look There has been some talk about the upcomming game Driver wich is like Grand Theft Auto but from the eye view, i've seen some shots and it looks very nice and detailed.

The following subjects are used in the First Look:

Intro

What's Happening?

Will it retain the GTA feel?

What is that with wich i may kill?

On the subject of the engine....

Any sort of plot, anywhere or anything?

The final word

Mugwum has done this First Look, so good job Mugwum.

Not much news today, but there was some very good GTA2 news like the Real Audio movie and the First Look by 3D Action Planet. I'm still pretty much waiting for Niteshade.net because i can't wait to open my GTA2 site cald GTA2 More Extreme.

Klamy.Co.Uk

I got an e-mail from Klamy... Klamy has AGAIN like in the early GTA days done some great work....this time a full VR TOUR of the great GOURANGA!! I've seen it and its great, you really should check out his work, i love it. You can check out the tour with FRAMES and NO FRAMES I recommend you view the NO FRAMES because the other one looks a bit different but its great too.

I also read this on the news: Its about EDGE73 with a collum by Brian Baglow (Ex DMA design PR) , this is what they posted:

"The original game quickly gained a huge underground following. A fiercely loyal, almost fanatical audience who created their own Websites (72 at the peak) (and about 200-300 in the webring queue! --Klamy) dedicated to the game and started GTA's very own newsgroup - alt.game.grand-theft-auto. This is kind of an unusual situation for a game. Games are often popular - characters from games can be extremely popular - but never before had we seen such a tightknit devoted group as the GTA fans.."

Thanks for sending in the news Klamy (Linux man)

GTA Directors Cut review

Gamespot UK has done a review about GTA DC and give it a 8 out of 10, thats pretty good. There's just one little thing, they mentioned it as GTA Editers Cut...but i think its just a little misunderstanding. Anyway check out the article

Liberty City Police Department

The LCPD has moved to a new and better adres at http://drive.to/LCPD

Download it from Turbo_King's GTA Rage Page at: members.tripod.com/gtarage/rage.html
 

I've also sent this Birthday card to Turbo King

Happy Birthday Turbo_King thanks for all your help

Xtreme Getaway Mailbag
======================

We at Xtreme Getaway, your #1 Grand Theft Auto News Source, want your opinions,
your views and your comments. We're starting a Mailbag which will be updated
weekly, each with a question set the week before. The Mailbag will be launched
on Monday 28th June, so you've got approximately 12 days to get your opinions
in on the following topic:

    
What is your true opinion of the GTA TC/Mod scene?

You can comment on anything you want on this subject. Here are a few ideas:

Do you think the GTA Mod/TC scene is thriving or gasping for dear life? What do
you think could make the scene better? Is there a particular Mod/TC in
development right now that you're particularly waiting for? Is there a Mod/TC
idea you have that you think could be great? Are people really that interested
in addon Mod's/TC's? Can GTA2's release improve the quality of the Mod's/TC's?

This is your chance to air your views, let people know what you think. Don't
hold back! We're not asking for you to flame people, we just want to know your
opinion. Let us know what you think by sending your opinions, comments and
views to

I have just started work on GTA Springfield, and it is coming along nicely. I have a couple of problems though.

GTA Plus

A new site is going to come instead of Andrew's closed GTA SideSwipe, its cald GTA Plus and will have lots of new features that have never been shown and i think i already know some but i'm not gonna tell you those nanananaaaa!! :-) Here's what Jordan had to say:

Hey. This is Jordan here to tell you that a new site is coming. The biggest GTA site ever.  It is called GTA Plus. GTA Plus will have everything you can imagine (and some stuff you never though of). Andrew, from Side Swipe GTA, took down his site thanks to everyone who stole his ideas (thanks a lot people!). A LOT of that stuff is going on these days.  Well, oh, where was I, oh yeah, Andrew has decided to give everything on his site to GTA Plus.  So that means we'll have even more stuff in addition to what we've already had. That will include the GTA Top 25, GTA banner rotation, GTA Mail, and more. We will probably soon have our own domain name at www.gtaplus.com, but for now our site is located at www.niteshade.net/gta/ . It is scheduled to open June 18th so keep your eyes open! (and please guys, don't steal anyone else's ideas!!!)

Hey i totaly agree with Jordon here, about stealing idea's!!! So don't do it, don't be such a wanker and think of your own idea's.

San Andreas Car Impound

YES Valdez will be back with the SACI this thursday or next, yipeeee so now Azz will have it much easyer with the cars. Valdez still have to do some more GCSE's but he had 2 days off so i got some time to talk with him. He had 220 e-mails in his Inbox, even though he said not to send him e-mails while he was away so his inbox would be full....hmm so it did oh well i know people have missed him including me so i'm glad he's comming back soon.

Hmm not much news....maybe if i find anything else GTA related today i'll add it in todays or tommorow's update. But if you have any please send it to me and i'll post it as soon as possible on the news.

I've also been working on another Renault Mégane Coupe....hehehe i haven't finished the delta's on the other Mégane but this is almost finished and then i'm doing both delta's and i'll release them. But they both look good, the other Renault Mégane Coupe is a rally car and i've used a other way of the shape on the rally version.

Anyway you'll just have to wait n see huh? I hope to have some more news soon.

Xtreme Getaway

Shortly after the launch of GTAXtreme.Net, we received an email from No
Fear who has run a popular GTA news site called "GTA Extreme" for some time
now. However, due to ISP/hosting problems, the site has been out of the
loop and for some reason was missed by us.

Out of courtesy to No Fear who has been in the community a lot longer than
we have, and to avoid confusion and bad feelings within the GTA community,
we decided to rename the site to "Xtreme Getaway".

We hope no ill feelings were caused as a result of our original name.

Our current domain,
http://www.gtaxtreme.net/ , will remain our URL and
will not be changed.

I'm glad this thing is over now and were both happy, well at least i am :-) Thanks Jeh and good luck on your new site.

GTA: London 1961

Good news about the addon for GTA: London 1969 that will be released on July 1st, here are more details:

The missions are set before GTA: London 1969," informed Dan Houser, minister of information for Rockstar. "We'll have two, possibly three maps, at least one of which will be multiplayer only. One of them will be a more Western view of London, the other will be loosely based on Manchester in the North of England - the Manchester map will have a Moss Side angle." For those of you that don't know, Moss Side is notorious gangland in the Northern UK city. Can't think why Rockstar picked that location then...

"There'll be 30 new cars on the site," Houser continued, "all of them in the 60s European style. The focus for the missions will be based on the exploits of Harold Cartwright, one of the bosses from GTA: London. He's in his younger days, living as a Mod."

The inspiration for the set of downloads seems, in part, to stem from a lack of space on PlayStation. "There were things we wanted to do but couldn't because of the PlayStation version. We've got powerups like skates to make you move faster on foot, the AI's been tweaked, things like that," he said.

GTA2.com

The official GTA2 site gta2.com will be opened also on July 1st with some GTA2 wallpapers, features and a GTA2 movie plus lots lots more so don't miss it!!. You will have lots of downloads on that day :-)

GTA Mission Helper

Another person, this time Darren has opened a GTA Mission Helper website where you can learn more things about editing the mission.ini file. There will be more added to the FXT support

GTA Get That Azzhole

Azz has posted a new car for GTA: London 1969 made by the original car maker of GTA London, its a Citroen SM wich was brought to public because i couldn't be used in GTA: London 1961, the cars from 73 if i remember it well. Anyway enaugh chit chat head over at GTA Get That Azzhole if i made you curious.

Made up my mind now, gonna open GTA2 More Extreme when i'm moving to Niteshade.net, so that will be very soon i hope. It depends on when they completed the HTML uploading section for me. Well have fun GTAing!!

Wednesday June the 9th:

Sorry i was late with yesterdays update but like usual Tripod was a pain in the arse again. But it was a good update, hope you like todays one :-)

GTA and GTA: London 1969

Grand Theft Auto is becomming popular in Holland, it now stands on the 2nd place of the PSX version. GTA London 1969 holds its place on the 4th place.

Mission ini programming site

The Grand Theft Autobahn has made a new section about Mission.ini programming, sinds i don't know a clue about mission.ini programming i have taken a look and its a visit worth. They have described it from the beginning to the end of programming and it makes everything a lot more easyer.

The Autobahncrew has done it again!  From the authors of Burger City.  A GTA site about mission.ini programming!  GTA Mission.ini Guru has all commands you can use in the mission.ini file. Every command has an explanation and there's also one example for each command, so you can see how it can be used.  The site also has a page about .fxt editing and a "questions & answers" page where I will answer some of the questions I get.  Summary: a dream page for everyone who wants to make missions for GTA, but don't know how.

So just come on over and learn how to program missions for your GTA map!  The address to the page is: members.xoom.com/missionguru/

And i think this says enaugh, lets hope more people will learn this because there seems to be a lack of mission.ini programmers.

Grandtheftau.to mail

Azz also made a new Car section about scanning cars sinds a lot of people try to do an attempt, looks very cool and described how things are done to edit a scanned car.

GTA@NET

GTA@NET has been redesigned and it looks pretty cool to me.

I got an e-mail back from Jeh of GTAXtreme (the other GTAExtreme site) and he explained that it wasn't possible to change the domain because it was bought and registred. And he also gave me an offer of joining his site to do the news......hmmm what do you think? I do get hosted for free for other sites i make, but i'm real proud at GTA Extreme and damn proud of the visiters that come here every day.

Anyway i've sent him an e-mail back that we there are a few options to fix the problem, we can leave it as it is right now and make a difference between the sites or i could demand that he should change his site's name but keep the URL where it is located now.

I haven't heard from him but i've sent him the e-mail today so i don't expect a quick reply. Well till tommorow then, seeya!!!

Vice City Docks

I am developing a GTA Pop Up box.  Any site that wished to join can.  All that you have to do is add the HTML for a Pop Up box for your site.  If you would prefer to add the button to make the box pop up you can.   The idea is called GTA Easy Find and it gives you all the latest news, links and downloads.  It will have a banner rotation for news and any site can add it as long as they have the Pop Up box on there site.  It also has a drop down box with every GTA site listed and many downloads as well. Instruction on how to install it will be on the Box and my site will be the first to have it.  In the mean time for more information and help about GTA Easy Find please email me at jordan@fenetre.co.uk and check out my site ready for the update of GTA Easy Find.

Yes whats this, there's a new site out there cald GTAXtreme somehow i don't feel comferetable with that site using my site's name.

I'm still waiting for a reply but first i didn't want to sent an e-mail but someone convinced me and made me realize that i should be pretty pissed, well i'm not that pissed but like i said i don't feel comferetable with this. So i hope he'll just change it and not make a problem out of this.

GTA Get That Azzhole

Azz has done a big update on GTA Get That Azzhole yesterday, the first real news update on his brand new site, take a look.

GTA Vancouver

Gareth is looking for a car editor for GTA Vancouver:

This is Gareth Williams aka Turbo_King author of San Diego and CarCrime County.

My car editor for my new project GTA Vancouver Robert Weerd aka Saig has had to pull out of the project.  I would like a new car editor for the city to make a new set of cars and maybe change some of the tiles.  If anyone is interested mail me at GJWilliams@Freenet.co.uk

So go help him if you want because i know there a lot of good car editers out there, and this is a good way to show people your cars.

3D Action Planet

There's a very cool Action Gaming Test on 3DAP and see if you can beat my and/or Schu his score. Mine was 61 and Schu's 73. Hehehe i lost from Schu...oh well its fun.

Route

Very neat and very cool site ROUTE2 is going to close and Prometheus is leaving the GTA Scene for ever now:

I have been having lots of pressure in school lately, and I'm not doing the best I could possibly do.  I have enough trouble as it is keeping Route up, then to have to deal with school work, work, etc.  I don't feel that I really have the energy to keep it up any longer than it has been.  Therefore, (from here on) I would like to end Route.  I don't want any begs from people again about me not opening it, this is FINAL.  I just don't have the enjoyment from it any longer and so I don't want to continue it.  This is Prometheus signing off.  You will never hear of me again...  Goodbye

Too bad i always loved Route, but sinds it wasn't updating because of the lack of times it was nothing anymore.

I've joined a very neat Quake2 clan that you can visit at http://www.come.to/CcClan the name of the clan is CcC (CyberCommClan). So i'm playing Quake2 lots these days and its going better everyday. If your a Quake2 fan and you would like to see me play Quake2 sometimes....visit the dutch Quake2 server at:      quake2.zeelandnet.nl:27910      maybe i see you there. I use the name [CcC] No Fear.

I also got a e-mail back from the Niteshade.net staff and they are working hard on the HTML uploading section they are making for me. There are still a few bugs but they will all go away when they are fixed. So soon expect to see a moved text while visiting this page.

O people send me news about GTA and i will post it on the news for ya.

Check out the update below for some very cool news about GTA2, GTA Gameboy and more. Also GTA2 will be released on the 22nd of October.....thats way too long for me man!!! I can't wait till it comes out because check this site out:

http://www.next-generation.com/jsmid/news/6742.html

Or check out the key-points Schu of Gouranga has posted:

  • Release Date
 :  October 22nd 1999 - The release will be worldwide for both PC and Playstation.
  • Platforms
 : PC & Playstation
  • Setting
 : Futuristic Los Angeles with everything from gang controlled back streets to shopping malls with plenty of targets.  Watch your back because if your in the wrong area you can get mugged or dragged from your car.
  • Graphics
 : Accelerated Graphics (whatever that means - 3D I suppose), Real Time Lighting, and support for up to 200 peds on the screen at one time.
  • Cars
 : "'50s retro-style" vehicles that begin to smoke after they become damaged.  You can even drive a taxi and pick up peds or you can use an "articulated truck [to] move contraband around from area to area  [with a] trailer that is easily dispatched" if you get in over your head.
  • Destruction
 : 15 Weapons (no specifics announced) that can and will blow up everything (cars, peds, bridges, buildings, and whatever else you may or may not want to blow up)
  • On The Run
 : Four levels of police from the basic street cop, to SWAT teams, FBI agents, and finally, if you really pissed someone off the Army will come after your ass.
  • Gangs
 : From Krishna's to the the ultimate gang, Zaibatsu.
  • Gameplay
 : Sam Houser mentions in the article that GTA2 "has been focused on making sure you get a top-quality gaming experience."  He went on to say, "Gameplay is by far the most important thing."

GTA64

I've read some stuff about GTA64 not being released here's the article:

"Its certainly taken long enough. In fact two years ago, when N64 first started, we actually saw and early version of N64 GTA, using the Silicon Valley engine, up and running at DMA. The problem then wasn't bring across to the N64 but rather Nintendo to give the go ahead to the game's reams of swearing, mowing down of innocent pedestrians and dodgy back alley dealings. Now, though, with Resident Evil on board, as well as the similarly blood thirsty Turok games and the not-exactly-kiddyish Perfect Dark the big N can hardly say no. And so a 50% complete version is to debut at E3 showing that 1999 isn't simply going to be a year of great N64 games, Its going to be a great year of adult games."

Yipeee i have isntalled Microsoft Internet Explorer5 and i must say, it looks amazing and its much much better than IE4. It does change a few things but everythings much better now. I haven't heard from Nitehsade.net and the HTML uploading section they are making for me. But i'll send them an e-mail on how things are going. I'm also addicted to Quake2 internet play.....mmm more reasons to get on the internet....that sucks.

Hope you liked todays BIG update and i'll try to do it more often off course. Greetings, No Fear    ICQ: 37055984

Monday May the 31th:

GTA2 Preview movie

Well you already knew this but for those who didn't, the preview movie of GTA2 has been cut into pieces for an easyer download. Check out GTA2.com for the movies. I started downloading the full movie (35mb) a few days ago and yesterday i wanted to continue the download with GetRight of course and well it couldn't find the URL so all the download time was for nothing!! I was sooo pissed i couldn't continue downloading and i'm still pissed at them. So now i'm downloading one of the previews cald cop chase (12Mb)

Top European Charts

I saw this article a while ago and i thought i'd post it, its pretty big but interesting:

According to a press release issued by Take-Two Interactive today, the company's Grand Theft Auto game series is continuing to dominate European Sales Charts. This includes the recently released mission pack GTA: London 1969, the GTA Director's Cut and the original Grand Theft Auto. The sales figures represent both the Playstation and PC versions of all the aforementioned titles. The data comes from ChartTrak, a weekly sales tracking chart administered by The European Leisure Software Publishers Association (ELSPA).

For the week ending May 16, 1999 Grand Theft Auto: London 1969 (PC/PlayStation) held the number one position in the United Kingdom's ChartTrack All Formats chart, while the original Grand Theft Auto (PC/Playstation), rose to number two in the same chart, 76 weeks after its initial release. The original Grand Theft Auto has been in the ChartTrack All Formats top 20 for 76 weeks since it was released. Take-Two also claims that Grand Theft Auto products currently hold a top ten position in sell-through charts in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, France, Austria, Germany, and Italy.

Sam Houser, President of Rockstar Games - a wholly owned subsidiary of Take Two - said, "The Grand Theft Auto franchise has proven to hold a longevity that is unusual to find in a video game series. We look forward to continuing this trend with the release of GTA 2, and subsequent theme based mission packs."

And more usefull i saw this, look at the list below!!!

Take-Two Interactive Software announced today that Grand Theft Auto: London 1969 has landed at the Number 1 position in the United Kingdom's ChartTrack All Formats chart. GTA: London 1969, which is available on PlayStation and PC, was the top selling game on any platform for the week ended May 9 (its first week in release) in the U.K. GTA: London 1969 is an expansion disk for owners of the original PlayStation or PC versions of Grand Theft Auto. It is the first expansion disk available for the Sony PlayStation.

The All Formats chart combines sales for all systems, including PC, Playstation, and Nintendo 64. The number one ranking was accomplished by combining both PC and Playstation sales in the UK for the week. Other chart listings such as the PC and Playstation Top Five do not list Grand Theft Auto, GTA: London 1969.

The company also announced that Grand Theft Auto games (including Grand Theft Auto, GTA: London 1969 and Grand Theft Auto: The Director's Cut) have now shipped more than 2.5 million units to retailers worldwide. The original Grand Theft Auto held the No. 4 position in ChartTrack's All Formats chart for the week ended May 9, its 75th consecutive week holding a top 20 position in that chart.

The Company's Rockstar Games division, which published GTA: London 1969, began showing GTA 2, the PlayStation and PC sequel to Grand Theft Auto, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, which ended on Saturday. GTA 2 is expected to be released in October.
