GTA: Chinatown Wars - General News | @ 07:09 PM MDT | By Neil
An interview between Rockstar Leeds President Gordon Hall and IGN's Craig Harris has just been posted online, revealing some of the challenges and triumphs of the Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars' development.
"Even before we wrote one line of code we had laid in stone that the game MUST run at 30 frames per second. What we did do many, many times is go over the code, hand optimising every line we could. The amount of raw machine code in this game is just unheard of nowadays. We were busy throwing away page after page of traditional code in favour of the machine's raw assembly language."There are also some pretty amazing looking renders of what it's easy to forget is a Nintendo DS game.
