Joyride.

Hmmm...
To do:
Two prototypes from very early in development were released by former DMA Alumni Mike Dailly.

Debug Mode

Start a new game with any character, but change the character's name to porkcharsui. You'll hear a car accelerating and burning its tires. A set of debug commands will be available in the game.

If you quit the game, this debug mode will not work when you play the game again. You have to delete the player's name and enter it again to reactivate it.

Key Effect
Home Centers the game camera on top of you.
Numpad 8 / 4 / 6 / 2 Moves the camera Up / Left / Down / Right.
R According to some sites, this changes the screen mode. This may not work on the latest version of the game.
F12 Restarts the level.
D Takes a screenshot. (This does not work in the Steam version of the game.)
C I am not a number, I am a free man! Er, woman! FYI, anything over 100 means you go boom.

Displays your character's coordinates on the map, as well as your ID in the game itself. When using a vehicle, this displays the car's ID number, its speed, and the amount of damage it has taken.

[ or L Zooms in the camera.
K or ] Zooms out the camera.

Unused Graphics

Vehicles

GTA1 Helicopter.png Helicopter. Doesn't really fly. When spawned in the game, it moves on the ground like a car.

GTA1 Tram.png Tram. Intended as the train equivalent for the San Andreas level, as evidenced by the tramway tracks found there.

Tiles

Oh Ok Then I Cant Use That Thing Then... From San Andreas' 24-bit tileset.

Other

GTA1 Petrol bomb.png Intended for a Petrol Bomb item. This would eventually evolve to Molotov cocktails in Grand Theft Auto 2.

Alternate Graphics Set

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Gta-256.gif

The original split DOS/Windows release contains an alternate graphic set for the 320x200x256 resolution. Curiously, it still uses the old DeluxePaint pallete, meaning it was probably done in 1995 when the game was still about dinosaurs.

Unused Text

Demo Text

Texts carried over from the demo version.

[m22demo]Time's up, sucker! Ya want more? Buy the real thing.

Vehicle Names

[car10]Breakdown Truck
[car12]Tram
[car36]APC

The Breakdown Truck and APC are just names, without corresponding images in the graphics files. From the other site, the Helicopter has graphics (as seen above), but no name declared in the text file.
