Nick Kang is a young Chinese-American detective who has been suspended from the Los Angeles Police Department due to his extreme methods of policing and his ability to cause massive amounts of damage to property. However, Wanda Parks, the Chief of the E.O.D. (Elite Operations Division), requires Nick's assistance in a case that involves attacks on various venues in the Chinatown district. At first Nick is reluctant to help, preferring the vigilante life and focusing on avenging his father's death. However, he eventually agrees to conduct the investigation, on one condition: he must do it his way.

True Crime: Streets of LA is a free-roaming driving and action game similar in concept to Grand Theft Auto III. The game's structure is mission-based; most of the missions are dictated by the story and initiate following a cutscene that advances it. Failing a mission still allows the player to continue playing through the chapter and undertake subsequent missions; in some cases this will lead to branching paths and optional missions. However, in order to complete the whole chapter the player must eventually succeed in all the main missions. (MobyGames)

True Crime for PPC/OSX.
2GB DVD image. Also includes a no DVD crack.

•••••NB: The internal dl is the same as described above however in segments.
These must be renamed before any attempt to decompress:
– First remove extension incl fullstop from each segment ie '.zip'
– Second replace underscore '_' with fullstop '.'

After this the 3 segments can be uncompressed directly with 'BetterZip'. I'm not sure if the 'Archiver' handles segmented archives.

All this in order make it poss to upload to the internal server with it's file size limit.

Architecture: PPC

PPC G4/G5, 1 GHz or faster
Mac OS X 10.2.8
256 MB RAM
3 GB free disk space

if you burn a physical DVD and mount it, then the game will play OK (i.e the DVD does not have to be an original). So the noDVD hack is only needed if you can't use an actual DVD.

  Betterzip 1.8.3 itself prompt me to enter a password for the files.

@MadMac: I haven't used that shareware before, but if it was unregistered its possibly nagging for a password to register itself, and not the part files (may need registration before it can use certain features, such as joining segmented files).

Possible (unencumbered) free alternatives;
   • The Unarchiver, which has basic split file support (can join files named .001, .002 that do not use
      any extra wrapper format). Tho', I haven't tried it on split files before.
   • Split&Concat - does what it says. DL the older 2.5 version if running 10.4
   • HJSplit for Java by Håkan Gustavsson (works on any version of OS X, Windows, *nix). This is
      my personal favorite.

Anyhow, glad the Terminal & cat worked OK for you, too.

Mike, the Terminal trick do the job perfectly, thanks!... the weird thing was i take these renaming steps to the letter, and Betterzip 1.8.3 itself prompt me to enter a password for the files.

  Seems like these segmented files are password encoded...

No. Did you follow the instructions in description above, between the NB's? i.e.; The part about needing to rename the downloaded segmented part files before attempting to concatenate & decompress them?

Do as instructed above; Or, use a terminal & cat to join the files, with no need to rename:

cat T*.zip >

Its a large file to combine, so wait a minute or so for cat to finish (full prompt returns). Close the terminal and double-click "". The internal zip "Archive Utility" will then extract the archive from the recombined zip file.

I concatenated the 3 files together and they extracted without any password needed

Next time use Stuffit please.
Seems like these segmented files are password encoded... and the password is...
