The ROTSE project is dedicated to the observation of early optical emission from gamma-ray bursts. We have pursued this goal both by analysis of data taken from satellite-derived triggers via GCN, as well as through the study of untriggered data. Recent work now permits us to analyze much larger fields than previously possible. We will discuss our searches for GRB optical bursts which utilize this capability.
