The source code for The Simpsons Hit & Run has supposedly leaked online

Gaming leaks and decades-old development files continue to make their way online, appearing suddenly in the form of anonfiles.com uploads. While it's no Nintendo Gigaleak, the latest upload will likely catch the attention of many, as it's the source code for The Simpsons Hit & Run, a well-loved licensed game that fans have been demanding a remake of for years. Posted to 4chan, the folder supposedly contains documents pertaining to the game's development cycle and marketing from Radical Entertainment, alongside the full source code. According to posts, users have been able to successfully compile the source into a playable copy of the game, running on a Windows XP virtual machine.

The leak could possibly lead to fan-made ports to more modern platforms or detailed mods being made for the game. An extensive modpack for the PC version of The Simpsons Hit & Run called Donut Mod has existed for years, while just last week, another fan created an Unreal Engine remake of the first level from the game, complete with Ray Tracing and AI-upscaled graphics.

I just hope they can either loosen the timer or allow it to be disabled because the timer is so strict. I hope they can add better lighting. I also hope modders can add more costumes.

This post kind of makes me want to replay the game with all the latest donut mods.
or maybe you suck, got'em

I would really like to see fan made material for this puppy in the future. The game was a great alternative to GTA, though I felt it could have used a LOT more platforming elements to balance things out. Now maybe we can have that, as well as larger areas and what not. I know this Donut mods are out there, but they seem to be restrained a bit, though perhaps that's just my perception.

After beating it recently I think a lot of people were probably like me when it came out played only the first few missions and thought it was going to be like a GTA clone with the Simpsons but it's not really every mission you're driving and it's more like a racing game where you're either collecting items that get dropped or racing to a finish line or racing someone else that's mostly all the game is just like repeatedly in 49 missions, yes you're on foot a little bit but mostly just to get to a vehicle or occasionally collect some items that are on buildings etc.... So I think overall it's a pretty overhyped game.

I had fond memories of it is a kid but it could be because I wasn't allowed to play gta.

I'm a big Simpsons fan and got this game and I agree. I can't believe people have fond memories of it, it's cool but the game is nauseating. When it gets Halloween themed I forget why but it sucks. Also the mission with nuclear waste barrels. Screw that game is rather play bart vs the space mutants or dk64

don't understand why you can't just buy the gamecube or ps2 version
I can...or I could just emulate it. But now that the source code is out there it's only a matter of time until we get ports and HD upgrades for modern systems. I pretty much only buy retro physical games that have some personal significance or nostalgia factor, so this wouldn't qualify.

Hopefully if we do get an enhanced port, Donut mods still work since there was an amazing one that connected the 3 areas. I do like the PC version with Donuts mod the most since it has native widescreen and new features via mods.
