Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition allegedly not only contains files for unlicensed music and full game scripts with developer notes, but also appears to contain files related to the infamous sex mini-game “Hot Coffee”.
As reported by VGC, these files may very well be the reason Rockstar has removed the PC version of the game from its Rockstar Games Launcher. Around the release of the trilogy, the Rockstar Games Launcher was offline and did not allow anyone to play games they owned through Rockstar’s service. Thankfully, the launcher has been restored, but the trilogy remains out of the store.
With regard to the files in question, Dataminers found what they have described as the “holy grail” of files, including most of the music that has been removed from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas due to expired licenses. The music files are apparently still in the game, they just aren’t included in the rotation of the music being played.
An uncompiled version of the main.scm file was also discovered, which “contains all of the game scripts for GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas, including cut and missing content and notes from Rockstar North staff from that period.”
As for that “Hot Coffee” files, these are supposed to be in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas – Definitive Edition, they just weren’t active. For those who may not remember, San Andreas allows players to have sex with different girlfriends. The scene itself wasn’t very graphic, but in 2005 a mini-game was revealed that was not intended for the final game and that allowed players to enter the girl’s bedroom and control Carl’s actions during sex.
This got Rockstar into a lot of trouble and resulted in San Andreas being dragged off the shelves of certain regions until the mod was removed. Rockstar was also charged with a lawsuit for failing to disclose the sexual content of the game. In 2009, The GTA company Take-Two would settle the $ 20 million lawsuit.
Besides these problems, many users have reported it a number of other issues with Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, including quality issues, switch issues, missing items, and more.
