## Intro
3 years ago
The aim of this project is to reverse GTA III for PC by replacing
parts of the game [one by one](
such that we have a working game at all times.
## How can I try it?
- re3 requires game assets to work, so you **must** own [a copy of GTA III](
2 years ago
- Build re3 or download [the latest nightly build]( (You must be logged in.)

- (Optional) If you want to use optional features like Russian language or menu map, copy the files in /gamefiles folder to your game root folder.
- Move re3.exe to GTA 3 directory and run it.

## Building from Source
<details><summary>Linux Premake</summary>
- For Linux using premake, proceed: [Building on Linux](
<details><summary>Linux Conan</summary>
Obtain souce code.
git clone
cd re3
git submodule init
git submodule update --recursive
Install python and conan, and then run build.
conan export vendor/librw librw/master@
mkdir build
cd build
conan install .. re3/master@ -if build -o re3:audio=openal -o librw:platform=gl3 -o librw:gl3_gfxlib=glfw --build missing -s re3:build_type=RelWithDebInfo -s librw:build_type=RelWithDebInfo
conan build ..
- For FreeBSD using premake, proceed: [Building on FreeBSD](

You may want to point GTA_III_RE_DIR environment variable to GTA3 root folder if you want executable to be moved there via post-build script.
- For Windows, assuming you have Visual Studio:
- Clone the repo using the argument `--recursive`.
- Run one of the `premake-vsXXXX.cmd` variants on root folder.
- Open the project via Visual Studio
**If you use 64-bit D3D9**: We don't ship 64-bit Dx9 SDK. You need to download it from Microsoft if you don't have it(although it should come pre-installed after some Windows version)

**If you choose OpenAL on Windows** You must read [Running OpenAL build on Windows](

> :information_source: There are various settings at the very bottom of [config.h](, you may want to take a look there. i.e. FIX_BUGS define fixes the bugs we've come across.

> :information_source: **Did you notice librw?** re3 uses completely homebrew RenderWare-replacement rendering engine; [librw]( librw comes as submodule of re3, but you also can use LIBRW enviorenment variable to specify path to your own librw.
