The GTA III 10th Anniversary Edition Is Moddable.
If you’ve been playing the GTA III 10 Year Anniversary Edition, it’s been a delightful trip down awesome memory lane. Even as primitive as the graphics look as as one-take-only-ever as the voice acting is, it is every bit the game that changes the gaming world forever when it was released in the fall of 2001. There’s a reason for that – well part of a reason anyway. The mobile version of the game uses the same file structure that the PC version did. So what does this mean for you? It means that it’s theoretically possible to go into the actual game files and tweak or modify them, and even install new files. In other words, to make and/or install mods. Awesome!
There’s just one catch: You can already get cracking right now on your Android devices, but iPhone and iPad aren’t so cooperative. Apple loves to make it impossible to do anything to their accessory devices, sof you want to put mods on your iOS copy of GTA III, you’ll have to jailbreak your iOS device. That’s completely legal of course, but it also voids the warranty. Best you wait until after your warranty expires to do it. Assuming you don’t care then it’s all good.
In the meantime, a thread over on XDA has helpfully compiled instructions and various mods for the Android version of GTA III.
So have any of you out there jailbreaked your iOS device and installed or made GTA mods? Let us know! And meanwhile, we’ll look forward to the iOS version of San Andreas, so that everyone can freak out about ZOMG HOT COFFEEEEEEEE.
