Open Source GTAIII

Post#1 » Sun May 29, 2016 4:53 am

I found this today. It looks like it's been in the works for awhile in early stages, but is starting to gain attention now. It's called OpenRW. An open source GTA3 engine. Really cool stuff, I like seeing open source engine re-implementations

Out of the many open source engine rewrites, I think that this can totally be ported to Dreamcast. Along with OpenMW (TES Morrowind) and Xash3D (GoldSRC / Half-Life). It'd take a crapton of work, but those would probably be the best possible games to port imo

Who knows, this could eventually work with Vice City and San Andreas. Since I think they all used the same engine, with minor engine improvements between each sequel

I could see 3 and VC to run on a dreamcast, however SA ran on an entirely revamped graphics and physics engine so I can't see myself play that any time soon. Now the only problem is how to get the music streaming to function properly.
