If I´m not wrong, I think that there´s a version of GTA for GBColor.

I didn''t think that possible because a GBcolor has only 2 buttons and gta requires some thing like 4 or more. I think because i don''t have it in front of me now and im not getting it.

Well I thought you were a GTA fan if you were you should know that there are 2 GTA on the Gameboy Color.

Anyway one reason is GTA3 is coming out by the end of the year and two it is illegal I believe. You can get GTA as freeware so I gues it isn''t illegal but there isn''t a source code anywhere. I personnally don''t have time for that big of project.

Just wait for GTA3 or go buy the GBC version.

Thanks for the insite guys. I think I will at least try a little and maybe get a title up or something (Maybe or maybe not it just depends if I have the time.)

I have been messing with his source and all and I have to say it is very messy. Yes I do agree that it is rather UGLY. I can see why he scrpped this project. Anyway I think you will be better off starting from scratch and if you can figure out what he wrote use it as a cheat sheet unless you can clean it up.

Also as far as the menu screen I would stick with either Start or select only. You will need as many buttons readily availible. Preferably (A for shoot) (B for run) (R for getting in and out of wehicles) and (L for a special button)

Anyway good luck and if you need any help let me/us know. I would be happy to help out.
