    What is the format of models? I am using Blender to make,rig and animate models ...
    And what script are you using? I think Javascript will be easier.

    Ok so I ripped out the script for gta advance from the gba rom but I couldn't figure out what to do from there

    So I just typed up the whole gta advance storyline/mission script and now im editing missions so it will fit with gra Chinatown wars map


    However I need someone to download the gta Chinatown wars iso from wherever wink wink

    And I need that someone to delete out gta cw existing script and replace it with the one im typing up and editing

    All I need is someone who could actually replace the dialogue my edited one with the gta Chinatown wars one and then we can begin replacing the gta Chinatown wars characters such as the bosses replacing them with gta advance characters

    Then finally we start the hardest part reprogramming the missions in gta cw
    Because gta advance and Chinatown wars map are different

    Ii made a mistake

    I remember people porting GTA SA to the GTA 4 engine.
    It takes months if not years to complete.

    I also remember people porting GTA 2 to the GTA SA engine (or GTA 4 engine)

    Both took years.

    Good luck OP.
    Make the dream.

    Edit: yer better off asking the GTA forums tbh.

    PSP game structure and GBA ROM structure is completely different.
    You'll have to modify every street, every car every character to make it similar to the Advance one.

    I do am interested in playing it if you ever finish it, dun get me wrong on that one.
    But the shear scale of it is a fuck ton.

    What I suggest you could do it explore the contents of the PSP game and see if you can modify sprites n what not.

    Ffs how can I make this simpler
    Only the storyline and protagonist and nain characters will get moved

    The Streets and cars and weapons of gta Chinatown wars will not be changed
    That's the whole point of this to play gta advance storyline as Mike but in Chinatown wars with Chinatown wars weapons map and cars do you understand?

    Help is appreciated
