We, the Trespasser Community, have been having a long history. I think that most of us have been playing the game until an idea popped into our mind: “WOOOOW, what a fantastic game, too bad there are still some features I’ve been missing”…
Well based on that thought the first few people huddled together and started to hack Trespasser a little. They called themselves THS (Trespasser Hacking Society) and started to edit the files and tried to gather as many information as they could. They had a limited success with this all and finally had to give up. Their problem was most likely a bad feedback from too few people. However some of the original THS did not want to give up on the game so easily and started hacking it again. They formed the THS II and once again, they become quite successful with understanding the basics, but again, they didn’t get to finish the wanted Editor and gave up. But as before, a few were still left, who didn’t want to give up on this task. Some of these few were:
- CodytheRaptor: Who’s been running the oldest Trespasser site from the very beginning (Project Trespasser).
- Andres: Who has been working on TresView/TresEd, a program to look at,create and modify Trespasser levels.
- Wajas: Who has been working really hard on his “Trespasser City” site and was able to get into touch with some of the few DreamWorks Interactive game programmers (you can read the interviews on his site!)
- TSOrd: Who’s been quite successful with creating some new hacking utilities, based on the old THS tools. He started to create an editor to extract the music and sound files from the game, as well as a texture input file editor and some others. He has been working on the “MasterHack” (his idea of a Trespasser Editor), but then mysteriously disappeared and with him, most of the community died for a little while… In 2005 we got the sad news that TSOrd died on October 4, 2001.
However, it didn’t take us long to regroup. A new forum was started and many new people joined. Including:
- Rebel: Who has been working very hard on little programs to keep many people interested in the game. This include TPAReader and Shell Generator among others.
- Madppiper: Who has been trying to help wherever he could.
…and many others. Andres was still working on TresView back then, and started working a little harder on it, making it to what it is now, a version of a real Trespasser Editor (TresEd). The community returned into life and many many members helped to come closer to our dream. The work of all together helped to make it to what it is now. Today we are growing in size steadily and it won’t take long, until we can fulfill our dream. This site, as a gateway for all the other Trespasser sites, will help us all to stick closer together and to finish where others have failed and I’m really glad to be part of this…
Now, several years after we launched this site, we can be proud that we are still up and running. By now we have achieved a lot. Out tools have become better, a lot of new levels have been created by the community, we have recovered priceless original assets from Trespasser, including versions of the long lost Pine Valley and Plantation House. The community is still here, it is still active. Even when you don’t see any update lately or if the forum have been a bit inactive for some time, you can be sure there are people still modding and playing the game behind the scenes!
A special thanks goes to our old host the GameSpy Network & the new host Ilscipio!
me encantaria saber si hay proyectos nuevos para realizar el remake de este gran juego
I saw the last entry here is 4 years old at last. So are there news ore somethings? I miss the old times. What is about Trespasser 2 with Cry 2 Engine? Is the Project stopped? Why are going nearly all old games going to be forgotten?
i am not sure I can agree. The last post was on Dec 10th and there has been plenty of updates within the forum, that we just haven’t come around to report about yet.
You might be interested in the development of http://trespassingpetrolia.com/, which is a great Trespasser Mod for the CryEngine 3!!!
Im Chris Lyon – a filmmaker living in Shreveport, La. I was referred to you by a fellow JP fan who suggested I reach out to you. I’m currently running a Kickstarter for a project that I’ve wanted to do since I was a kid – a Jurassic Park Fan Film.
After growing up and joining the film industry, I’ve grown my talents and desire to tell stories enough to where I’m going to attempt making something really special for myself and the JP community. It’s called “The Incident” and is a story about the chance encounter of some civilians and the InGen Corporation during construction on Isla Nublar. It’s sourced from the novel and realized using the visual continuity established in the films, creating what is essentially a bridge of missing content or a set of deleted scenes or alternate viewpoints. It’s sure to be a fun ride and I hope we can raise the funds to make it work.
I’m extremely passionate about Jurassic Park and the opportunity to tell a story like this brings joy to someone like myself. I’ve called in a lot of favors to make this happen and could really use the help from you guys in making it a reality. If this project and the passion speak to you – and you think it would speak to your fans – would you be willing to help spread the word about our fundraising efforts?
Here’s the link to the Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/chrisplyon/the-incident-a-jurassic-park-fan-film
I would love to speak to you guys about the project and what people can expect from it. We really have something special here.
Our Twitter is @JPTheIncident and our facebook is /JPTheIncident.
Best in all,
I’m having a bit of a problem in creating a forum account, I’ve not received the activation email. I’ve check the spam box numerous times and click the resend email button numerous times too, please help.
Yeah I’m having the same problem as the above guy, created an account but haven’t received any confirmation mail in my email inbox or spam folder. Know for a fact that I got the email address right, bug in the system perhaps?
Can you guys send me your username that you registered with? I got a feeling that the spam protection may have been a little too hard on the two of you…
I activated both your accounts. Sorry for the trouble you guys had to go through and welcome to the community…
Hey guys. How do I sign up to be a fan on this site?
I cannot login. I’ve sent the activation email numerous times, but to no avail. If you could help me, that would be great. Maybe it’s the spam protection?
I have a similar problem. I’ve just registered an account on the forum site but have not received the activation code through email. Again, I definitely got the address right, I’ve checked my junk and spam folders and still nothing. I think there may indeed be a bug in the system.
I’m begging you to help me. Call me a crank but I’ve been playing this game since it came out. I so wanna join this community.
The username I registered with is David-King.
and no worries – i activated your account.
Welcome to TresCom 🙂
Yaaaaay. Thanks a bundle. 🙂
I am still not registered, and it wont let me do it again.
ok, what’s your username and I will take a look…
Damn.. I cant remember.. but I just got a new email address so I will try to do it again
I tried again with new email address listed above..
User name : Bryankd2015
I activated your account. Welcome to TresCom!
This is second time I’m trying to ask you for help with activating my account. My nickname is VendorX and mail the same as this one, so I will be grateful if you can help me.
Gregory, your forum account (VendorX) should be active now. I’m assuming there was no reason for not activating the account.
Have you seen “Return to Jurassic Park: A Tresspasser Mod”? I don’t remember my username here or I’d post it in the forums..
Hi Seph. Yes, it is one of our lovely community member who is the creator of that one! Feels free to create a new account on the forums!
Yes. This is one of my favorite websites. I’m glad that is has gotten this far.

May need some sprucing up in that footer. Good to see the site still up and postin’, as it’s been among those that’ve made me glad to’ve come in possessing at big box with the ‘raptor on it. Still have an ol’ Alcohol 52%(/120%) rip from 2009 sitting among my files, though I’ve never bullied past perhaps even the first level! Still, love to look into what has been said and done with this big game that couldn’t.
Thanks for pointing that out. I’ve fixed that.
Glad you are enjoying the game! 🙂
I have been trying to register for the Forum but the Register Link at the top left on the Forum page keeps reloading the Forum’s main page. I think that the link must be broken.
Hi Renee, yes we are having some issues with the forum at the moment after a server migration. You could try “https://www.trescomforum.org/forum/” for now, that appears to show properly!
Thank you tatu. I was finally able to register for the forum.
I played trespasser as a kid and loved the game! Now I work in the animation industry in film, tv and games. I would love if anyone could help me convert the dinosaur models into .obj or .fbx files that I can open in Maya.
Your best bet to get help with that is to register on the forum, the link is at the right menu bar.
Hi guys, I have recently (re)discovered this amazing game. I was wondering if there are any big changes or quality of life improvements that I can use to enjoy this game just a bit more.
Also, are there any other games like this that I might have missed? Have played a lot of Jurassic Park games when I was younger started with the one from ocean software.
Have a nice day!
Hi Derrik! Glad you found your way back to this game. It is highly recommended to use the CE patch (Downloads/Patches). It gives modern OS compatibility as well as stability and performance enhancement. We have tons of fan levels as well. If you want enhanced retail levels, Isla Sorna might be what you are looking for. Otherwise I suggest joining the forum and ask!
As for other similar games. There isn’t really anything like Trespasser, even if you look at games without dinosaurs, sadly! 🙁
Hey there i wanna replay this game in the best possible way with mods of my choosing, but first off, i cant even get the ce patch to work so i need some guidance on this, you can email me if you want to help me through this please.
Hi Ancient_1. The easiest way is to get the Tres2020 mod kit. It comes pre-packed with both the ATX and CE patch. For a vanilla experience, all you need is the level files from the game CD. The package comes with a readme on how to setup those, as well with some pre-packed mods! https://www.trescom.org/download/trespasser-2020-a-trespasser-modding-starter-kit/
