Petition to Open Source GTA1 and GTA2

10 posts in this topic

It was brought to my attention today that a petition has been made for Rockstar Games to make both GTA1 and GTA2 open source. For those of you not familiar with programming terminology, this means that the source code (basically the code that makes the game work) will be made viewable to anyone who wants it.

This would be invaluable to modders and programmers alike, who would be able to make modifications to ultimately improve the playabilty of the games much more easily than before.

Topic starter drwbns sums it up well.

Creating enhancements such as improving gameplay physics, weapons, and netcode could be a start and would show the GTA community contributing back and showing their support for old favorites.

The original topic on our forums can be found here, more importantly, head over to Petition Online to sign the petition, remember to use a valid email address too.

Thanks for the support everyone!

You have a better chance of breaking into 622 Broadway New York, NY 10012 and stealing the source code, than to actually get Rockstar Games to release it.

Nice to see a negative attitude from fellow GTA webmasters and staff, doesn't really help.

Lol that was a joke about how Rockstar Games is willing to release stuff. I'm not beeing negative. I think it'll be cool if they release it.
