The developer's original artistic vision was to have the glass just disappear, but they were limited by the technology of the time.

They were also limited by alpha values, clearly. They intended to make the rain opaque this entire time.

There’s actually a TON of new SFX added but it’s all transparent*

please keep beating up on this game. i love this shit.

As someone that was eager to buy it and just waited for some reviews this is so damn entertaining. Meanwhile I downloaded the original version off Steam and had fun 🙂

EDIT: I seriously feel pity for anyone that does not own GTA SA on Steam. Real fuckhead dick-move of Rockstar to scrap them off Steam before this horrible launch. They knew excatly what they did. Fuck them. Grab the old PS2 copy and an old PS2 and show them your middle finger. Same for the other 2 games in the "Definetive Edition". Or go full emulation...

EDIT 2: Folks, read the end of my Edit, I know about emulation, so pls stop the "Or YoU CoUlD EmUlAtE iT!!!??1!"

You and me, i learned from Cyberpunk 2077. Never again will i preorder or buy a game without looking for reviews.

All they had to do was follow the damn code

Tens of minutes went in to the remaking of these games

ID: hkyo9ww

You are giving too much credit to them.

ID: hkyp2pz

Most of the tens of minutes spent updating Windows.

I am convinced no one really worked on the game and they just ran it through some kind of algorithm to "remaster" it...

Lol that’s hilarious. It’s supposed to be a nut lol

Also one of the stores is clearly just OCR'd and upscaled automatically because all the words became misspelled.

ID: hky8l4d

I feel like it's also possible someone was given a folder of untextured models to smooth or redo at a higher polycount, without being given any context, and then they just updated the models in the scene using the existing coordinates.

I was on the side of it being too lazy for an AI to have caused. Then I realized half of the shit left out would likely have been indiscernable by an AI and manually replaced with generic graphics, ala the guitar store. Then I saw the donut store and realized there is no god.

You literally cannot 100% the game right now. One of the Arena challenges cause the game to become completely unstable after playing it I'll just crash to desktop upon trying to save or start a mission. I believe it's called The Blood bowl or something like that, the one in San Fierro.

ID: hky04rj

There is actually some evidence that they used AI upscaling on the mobile version of the game lol. So you might be right

ID: hkxsfly

That's exactly what happened. And now, all the dipshits who bought it are debugging it for free.

ID: hkxw3xq

There’s a mod pack called the “definitive edition” that’s been out for a long ass time that runs better then this. It upscales and HD’s the game so nicely too

ID: hkxuzu9

Yep. They will just query reddit for all the complaints and refer to it as Jira.

GTA San Andreas *Defective* edition.

ID: hkxnf38

GTA San Andreas "Theft" edition.

ID: hkxs438

It's immersive.

Now you can feel like CJ after Tenpenny took his cash.

ID: hkxvoru

Player: So, I can buy the Definitive Edtition on my PC?

R*: Yup!

Player: Okay, so I can play it on launch day?

R*: Nope!

Player: Oh- uh, okay. So I can play it a day or two after launch?

R*: Oh, yeah, yeah, no.

GTA San Andreas DeMastered

Seriously Hilarious when the original is better then the "remaster".

9 : Anonymous2021/11/17 00:20 ID: hkx9uym

It's evolving but backwards

10 : Anonymous2021/11/17 00:59 ID: hkxf5id

I genuinely don't understand why GroveStreetGames used their shitty broken android port as the base for the Definitive edition, if they were gonna port the game to Unreal anyway, why at least not use the PS2/Xbox/PC version as a basis instead. This broken mess is a terrible port from an already terrible port.

ID: hky18qs

It reminds me of Sonic Adventure where every new port is based off the previous bad port of a bad port vs restarting from the original Dreamcast release.

ID: hky8avl

It’s the Habsburg chin of ports

11 : Anonymous2021/11/16 23:59 ID: hkx71t9

This game is basically the mobile port version slapped unto Unreal Engine with textures placement done by an A.I.

ID: hkxva7n

Is this the same version as on oculus?

I don't see what everyone's complaining about, the remaster on the left looks so much brighter and better than the shoddy old shit version on the right. ;)-

Your left or my left?

GTA: Definitively Worse Edition

Mobile port.

ID: hkx3gjl

also phones are more powerful than PS2s these days, they could AT LEAST have the original functionality

ID: hkxw1ff

It's a port of mobile port from 2013.

All they had to do was not remove the damn originals from the internet. The fact they nuked versions with years of fan made upgrades is fucking evil.

ID: hkx7mm1

All you had to do was follow the damn game, CJ

An embarrassment. That's all there is to say.

ID: hkxwvnn

People will be comparing bad remakes/remasters to this for a long time.

18 : Anonymous2021/11/17 01:15 ID: hkxhbbk

Is it still possible to buy the older versions of these games?

ID: hkxrbgz

No. Rockstar removed it. You can pirate it tho
