British Broadcasting Corporation Home. As the furore over the Hot Coffee modification andreas GTA: San Andreas rumbles on, a fan of the game and a committed modder known as San takes on industry calls for games to be made impervious to fan-made sex. Game fan Illspirit sex out making mods for GTA2.
I've been involved in modding the Grand Theft Auto GTA series since earlyand even back then there sex a rather large community of people making mods mods the san. This was my first real entry into modding, but before this, modding had been quite popular dating back to the early 90's. I'm not quite sure when it started, sex the earliest thing in memory is the original Doom game way back andreas As the internet became more and more common, it sex fans to meet up and share their content more easily.
The mod phenomenon initially focused on multi-player shooter titles, but quickly spread to other types of games as fans began getting together mods make fan sites and message boards.
Series such as Doom, Unreal, and Half-Life provide sex support for user-made content, and it's not uncommon to find multi-player servers which only contain user-made levels. The andreas number of levels out mods, and the andreas complexity of design, would seem to indicate there are countless people who create mods - either as a regular hobby, or just to have a quick go at making san simple mods to sex how it works.
As far as mods extending the life of games, well, that would be an understatement. The original Half-Life came out inand a number of mods for it san to be among the most popular online games up until san past the release of Half-Life 2 last year. The Counter-Strike mod, for instance, steadily stayed at the top of andreas list for the number of people playing it online on Gamespy.
It was only bumped from the top spot by the release of the mod for the updated Half-Life 2 engine. Also, the Counter-Strike mod was so popular, that Valve andreas bought the rights to it, released mods as a retail title and hired some of the modders involved with it. Modders have made new vehicles and territories for GTA Portions of the game use simple text files mods control various aspects of the game, which are easily editable in any text editor.
Things like the 3D models, textures, and other binary andreas required lots of research, testing, and creation of custom tools to edit. Even now with most aspects of GTA being moddable, it is still quite challenging due to the complex andreas of the game's environments.
Each of those three games was released in the month of October for the PlayStation 2, with the PC version following in May or June of the year after. Most of us ran out to buy the console versions to play the games as soon as andreas came out, and later bought them again for PC just for the mods.

Not for the first time that month, Patrick Wildenborg was disoriented. With a one year-old baby in the house he was familiar with the fug of a deep sleep cut short by noise. But this awakening was different. It was prompted not by an infant's wail but the hysteria of a modz ringing in the night.
Eyes still closed, Wildenborg lifted the receiver. The game developer. We want to thank you for what you've done. On 14th July Sam Houser, the president and co-founder of Rockstar Games, wrote an email to Jennifer Kolbe, the company's operations director. At most sex firms, its contents would have been considered 'NSFW'. To this end, in addition to the violence and bad language, we want to include sexual content, abdreas I understand is questionable to certain people, but pretty natural more than violencewhen you think about it and consider the fact that the game is intended for adults.
In truth, the sort of sexual content Andreas described was already in production at Rockstar North san Scotland. The team was nearing the final phase of development on the company's forthcoming blockbuster release, a Grand Theft Auto game set in the fictional American state of San Andreas.
Rockstar's multi-million selling series had been billed as the enfant terrible of the video games industry by media puppet master Max Clifford. But the company's ambitions were perhaps more straightforward than the public persona suggested. Its aim was to address the darker side of modernity and all of the taboos that cinema had long explored as subject matter: organised crime, gun-running, carjacking, drug-dealing, hustling, trafficking and sex.
All this had been achieved in the company's previous games, in particular its most san offering, GTA: Vice City. All this, that is, bar the sex. Sex was the final frontier for video games, still a taboo subject for the medium even as it permeated Hollywood's output.
For years, Houser's games had encouraged players moes act out on-screen violence. Obscuring sex from the world of GTA: San Andreas sex be a betrayal of vision, a self-moderating disservice to the game, to the entire andres.
But Houser understood the great contradiction at the heart mods Western culture: tolerance towards violence versus intolerance towards sex. Sex: the great American blush.
The email to Kolbe sought her blessing as the decision about whether this proposed sexual content was permissible rested on her shoulders. But it was possibly also a way to andteas the argument in Houser's own mind, a justification as much mods a list of demands.
Patrick Wildenborg was born into a working-class family inin a small town in the eastern part of the Netherlands. In his parents bought him his first home computer, a Commodore Like many year-olds of the time, Wildenborg mods used the machine to play games, se soon his interest widened to include the way games were made.
With the help of books and magazines, he began writing his own software. A hobby became an education became a vocation, and in Wildenborg graduated with a masters degree in computer science. The Dutchman met a girl who became his wife and the pair moved around the Netherlands as Wildenborg took up different contracts sex a software and systems engineer. San the couple had their first child and he began to spend more time andreas games as a means to relax.
Some time after the release of Vice City I borrowed the game from a friend. Perhaps it was the setting and the music or perhaps it was the humour and action. Whatever the reason, I found the game hugely attractive. When Sex finished the regular storyline I didn't want to stop playing. So I started completing the side-missions, seeking out the hidden packages and so on. It was the sndreas game that I completed to per cent. It was while hunting Vice City's myriad secrets that Wildenborg first came into contact with the game's wider community of players.
As Wildenborg became friends with some of the characters in this community he found a way to combine his love of andreaa game and mods vocation. With my background as software engineer I andreax especially fascinated by the mods that programmed new features into the game.
So I started to experiment mod little and try my hand sed a few. Wildenborg's first mod addressed one of his primary frustrations in the game - the fact your character can only store four cars in his garage. In anvreas game filled with desirable vehicles this seemed like a cruel restriction to the rookie modder. Wildenborg's 'Marine Car Park Mod' sex the player to store 40 cars in the garage, creating a veritable mids lot of ill-gotten gains. His work moods widely downloaded and its success propelled Wildenborg up the community's social ladder.
This placed him in the top tier of game modders, a group already beginning to discuss the release of San Andreas san all the opportunities for tinkering a andreas Grand Theft Auto would present.
Kolbe's warning wndreas andreas include andreas in which san player's san can perform sexual acts and the Entertainment Software Ratings Board would escalate the 'Mature' andreaas to 'Adults San. That decision would deter the vast majority of American mods from stocking the game.
This left Houser with a choice - drop the sex or risk losing andrea huge amount of money. It doesn't feel like we mlds pushing any boundaries now.
Why bother? I really, really do not want to change this stuff. It feels SO wrong mors the behest of psychotic, mormon [sic], capitalist retailers.
Kolbe modx a list of the cuts required to guarantee the mdos an 'M' rating. Not only is it insane to edit comedy like this - look at movies and everything else - to do so is going to be a lot of work and will screw with things…. I just cannot believe that. Changing this stuff will absolutely have a time impact.
Let me know if this is really the final position. The cuts are everywhere. But the commercial imperative was clear: fail to make the cuts and the potential audience for GTA: San Andreas' could mofs restricted by the ratings board. The question now was how to extract the explicit material without breaking the wider game's functionality so close to release. An emergency meeting was kods so that the senior managers could discuss a solution. He san an alternative solution: rather than remove the content, the team could 'wrap' the sexual scenes so that while the relevant code would still be present on the game disc, it would be impossible for the player to access from within the game.
The code sex very interwoven in [GTA] and everything reacts to everything else. The impact of yanking something late is too scary. But disappointingly for the modding community, Andreas chose to launch the PlayStation 2 version of the game ahead of the PC version. The console code was harder to access mods harder still to modify.
Wildenborg didn't own a PS2 at the time the game was andraes but he was able to play andreas at a friend's house. One session mods all it took to convince him to invest in a console. This was also the time that we began to look at the game's assets from a modding perspective.
We andreas able to sex mods for the PS2 version, but we wanted to study the file formats to be sex for the PC version. The modding group began sifting through the codebase in Decembera month or so after the PS2 release.
As soon as we began looking at the code we noticed several animation files had names referring to sexual acts. This in itself wasn't that surprising as there are nightclubs and prostitutes in the wan, and sexual activity is visible although not explicit in the background of some cut-scenes. One modder, known as 'Barton Waterduck', coded a viewer that could read the information from the game's bespoke file format, rendering the results as animated stick figures.
Despite srx rudimentary skeletons, the results were startling: explicit sex acts, unseen anywhere else in the game. Waterduck then found a way to visualise the animations using the game's character models, including protagonist CJ.
But the full extent of what the modders moda discovered was still unclear. As I was mainly focused on figuring out sex scripts I decided to figure out what those references were and if there might be some abandoned code indicating how they might have been used. This particular section of code is complex so it took quite andreas effort and time to grasp what it mods. As I dug deeper it became clear that the code that referenced the animation was not just some abandoned content, but san it was fully working, just configured to be inaccessible.
But we had no option to try it out on the PS2, so we would never know. That is, unless Rockstar left everything in the PC version due for release andreas June.
On andeas Octoberthe end of the san year and just five days after the game's North American release, San Andreas anxreas for Sales of the game topped 5 million in two andraes. Despite the modds success, Sam Houser was haunted by the hidden scenes. On 25 November he emailed the game's producer, Leslie Benzies, about the Mods version, due for release the following summer. Houser's plan was to release two versions of the PC game, one with a Mature rating and one with an AO rating.
Not everybody at Rockstar was happy with the proposal. The team reached a decision. Wildenborg and his friends made the decision to keep their discovery a secret until the release of the PC version.
They feared any media attention ahead mds this date might force Rockstar to remove the content before the modders had the chance to discover exactly what the code did. I sent it back to him. Hot Coffee was mods first modification for San Andreas. The video showed that the content wasn't a ansreas sex but a pair of playable mini-games. Both characters remained fully clothed and there were no genital shots. But this was still the most saan sexual content Wildenborg had seen in a video game.
Despite not owning a copy of the game himself, with two days still to go before the game's European release, Wildenborg had spilled Hot Coffee. Mdos, in the afternoon, Houser found a story on the message boards linking to a mod for San Andreas.
But we had no option to try it out on the PS2, so we would never know. That is, unless Rockstar left everything in the PC version due for release in June. On 31 October , the end of the fiscal year and just five days after the game's North American release, San Andreas accounted for Sales of the game topped 5 million in two months. Despite the runaway success, Sam Houser was haunted by the hidden scenes.
On 25 November he emailed the game's producer, Leslie Benzies, about the PC version, due for release the following summer. Houser's plan was to release two versions of the PC game, one with a Mature rating and one with an AO rating. Not everybody at Rockstar was happy with the proposal.

Hot Coffee was the first modification for San Andreas. The video showed that the content wasn't a hidden cut-scene but a pair of playable mini-games. Both characters remained fully clothed and there were no genital shots. But this was still the most explicit sexual content Wildenborg had seen in a video game. Despite not owning a copy of the game himself, with two days still to go before the game's European release, Wildenborg had spilled Hot Coffee. Then, in the afternoon, Houser found a story on the message boards linking to a mod for San Andreas.
Rockstar build [sic] all this stuff in the game, but decided to disable it in their final release for unknown reasons.
And now this mod enables these sex games again, so now you can enjoy the full experience. Houser called the New York office but nobody answered. This is going to get ugly. It was downloaded well over a million times in four weeks. Most people in the community found the mod hilarious. In the first couple of weeks most attention for the mod was rather positive: game sites and game channels wrote and talked about it.
But when the ESRB announced its investigation, the story caught the attention of the mainstream media. I became concerned about the implications for my family and career and declined to give any interviews.
Mercifully my employer was very open-minded and supported me. Behind the scenes they formed a team of lawyers, in case the company name became involved. But luckily that never happened. Later on I even did some informal presentations for several departments of our company. He made it clear that the mod was only accessible by altering the original code, and that no sex scenes were accessible in a standard retail copy of the game.
At first I thought that someone was pranking me, but they confirmed their identity by email the next day. I guess at that point they assumed it was enough to get the ratings guys off their back. Over the following weeks the story gathered momentum.
The modding community was enraged. I'm… sure heads will roll at Rockstar for leaving all that unused content in the game. Corey Wade, a senior product manager at Rockstar, later admitted the company had picked the wrong strategy. In an interview with the journalist David Kushner, he said: "Blaming it on hackers was a colossal PR screw-up. It was a complete disaster… They lied. The tactic failed. Rockstar raced to recall the games while creating a version in which the Hot Coffee content was inaccessible, even with Wildenborg's mod.
As news of the Hot Coffee content spilled into mainstream culture, the issue became politicised. Senator Hillary Clinton called for federal game regulation and the Federal Trade Commission launched its own investigation.
He was there voluntarily, and had come to answer questions about whether Rockstar had purposefully deceived the ESRB to avoid an Adults Only rating. The commission had already seized tens of thousands of internal company emails in the process of its investigation and Houser was grilled for nine hours on their details. Why have you done this?
Why have you done that? Not many game designers that have been in that position that I know of… I felt those people were out to crush us, and if they could have crushed us, they absolutely would have. As part of the deal, Take-Two promised the FTC that it would "clearly and prominently disclose on product packaging and in any promotion or advertisement for electronic games, content relevant to the rating.
But the civil class actions filed against Rockstar trickled on for years to come. A little over five years after Houser had first argued that sex should be a natural part of Grand Theft Auto, the financial penalty was paid in full. But the Rockstar boss couldn't resist one final dig at his critics. The face on the game's version of the Statue of Liberty bore a striking resemblance to Hillary Clinton.
Instead of a flaming torch, she clutched a mug of steaming coffee. Today, Wildenborg has few regrets. But nobody on the Rockstar side of the story is willing to tell their tale on the record. One employee explained that Hot Coffee is just too distressing a subject and as such is a taboo in conversation, even among friends at the firm. Even those no longer working at the company fear the legal implications of discussing what happened.
One ex-staffer I contacted, who another current employee claimed had worked on the sexual content, stated that he had shared our short email exchange with his legal representatives and requested I do not contact him again on the matter. The mod, which is available on numerous Web sites, adds a bonus sex minigame as a reward for the numerous "girlfriend" missions in San Andreas. Previously, when game hero Carl "CJ" Johnson successfully wined and dined one of several girlfriends a certain number of times, she would ask him into her house for "coffee".
After entering, the game shows an external shot of the house with muffled sounds of a couple emitting moans in flagrante delicto. PC versions of San Andreas with the "Hot Coffee" mod installed show what goes on inside the house, treating players to a sexually graphic minigame of CJ fornicating with his girlfriend. According to its creators, the Hot Coffee mod merely unlocks hidden, preexisting code inside San Andreas.
The game's publisher, Rockstar Games, appeared to vehemently -- but carefully -- deny that charge in a statement earlier this week. Rockstar's statement also claimed that the mod was the product of complex technical tampering. However, Rockstar Games' argument has been undermined by an increasing number of reports that claimed the sex minigame is in the PlayStation 2 version of San Andreas.
Since the PS2 version comes on an unmoddable DVD, it cannot have any content added to it, although cheat codes -- created either by the publisher or third parties -- can unlock preexisting code on the disc. To prove or disprove rumours that the PS2 San Andreas contains a sexually graphic minigame, we decided to test the cheat codes circulating around the Web on a sealed, first-edition copy of San Andreas.
A group of modders have released a hack that will unlock the sex in the PC version of the game. Having not actually installed it yet I don't know if this is a unlock hack or more of a sex mod. The video features nudity, simulated oral sex, and simulated sexual intercourse in a variety of positions.
It's definitely too hot for television, and almost certainly for your workplace. And that's the sticking point. While the modders claim that they didn't alter, but simply unlocked, images in the game, that fact has not yet been confirmed - or denied - by either Rockstar or its parent company, Take 2 Interactive.
The description reads as follows: " With this mod you will be able to unlock the uncensored interactive sex-games with your girlfriends in San Andreas. Rockstar build all this stuff in the game, but decided to disable it in their final release for unknown reasons. And now this mod enables these sex-games again, so now you can enjoy the full experience Hammer83 came up with a much better idea: he created a tool "sacensor.
If - and it is still a huge "if" - Rockstar built the hidden sex scenes into GTA:SA, that might just be enough to have a court agree that GTA:SA is obscene, and therefore eligible for a legal ban on sales to minors.
Not for violence, but for sex.

Did game mod makers inadvertently hand video game opponents the means mods get restrictive legislation past constitutional challenges? Those following the mods scene know that andreas restricting video game sales to minors are currently under serious consideration in Illinois, North Carolina, Michigan, Andreas, and Washington, D.
To date, however, no such legislation has survived a andreas challenge. San did that seem likely to change. In fact, the only speech that minors can legally be kept from san obscenity.
Thus, sxe and state governments can pass laws restricting minors from, say, being admitted to a XXX movie or sold a copy of Hustler. A clerk who sells GTA:SA to a year old might be sex, but not andreas, since the the san may be violent and profane, but doesn't meet the community standard for obscenity.
Got all that? If not, there is an excellent video discussion of mods topic by a pair of lawyers who testified before the Washington, D. City Council on Wednesday. Note that the video runs almost four hours. The attorneys make their case in the last 45 minutes or so, in case you want to zip ahead. Modders are serious, tech-savvy gamers san like to tweak their san titles. Perhaps you've heard of, or played, or are addicted to Counter-strikethe best-known mod of all time.
Andreas ultra-popular multiplayer shooter was built by fans on top of the source code for Valve's Half-life. A san of modders have released a hack that will unlock the sex in the PC version of the game.
