It is now official that the very popular Grand Theft Auto - Vice City - will be arriving on the PC format by May 2003. It will be released in the USA first on 13th May then in Europe on the 16th May.

The game will also have some better grapics and sound due to there being more pwerful hardware available in most PC's these days. As an added extra you will be able to change the game although details of how much are not fully known and if you can fully MOD the game.


Maybe they will make it multiplayer too?

Got VC for the PS2 but I will trading it in soon ;) PC version would be wicked

Teddy - the code for multiplayer has always been in GTA3. Even in the install files if you look you can see remnants of multiplayer stuff such as latency in the config files.

I always suspected they would release an upgrade and use multiplayer as one of the selling points - so it wouldn't surprise me at all.

that wud be so sweet .... id never go to work again if it is multiplayer .. i r stay at home and game all day :)

i seriously doubt any chance of multiplayer, i mean people thought multiplayer would be in 3, but no, i think there just doing waht they did to GTA 3 with VC

and does it work on LAN?

Raspy

Hunam - I just want to say :p

Told u, the code has always been there. It is a mystery to me why it wasn't released with multiplayer working, which is why I assumed it would be an upgrade you could buy.

Rockstar wanted to do Vice City more than do multiplayer in GTA 3...but in response to raspy...Remember, no body likes a smart arse

If anyone hears anything about the PC version of Vice City being patched please post any information.

In the meantime, check these two additional links for GTA3 multiplayer modified versions:

Rockstar should make... GTA ONLINE!!! A Massively Multiplayer version of GTA.

Just imaging, a whole city like Liberty City... only instead of the population consisting of computer generated pimps, hookers, and gangbangers... The population would consist of people 'online' from all over the world.

If Rockstar made this game, it would easily take over the video game industry... if not the entire software industry.

Think of all the people who would not only buy it... but pay $12+ monthly to play it.

Hey Rockstar, make this game! Then gimme a free copy for giving you the idea!

Gibbler
12-05-2003, 05:14 PM
Apparently the first "proper" multiplayer version of GTA will be GTA4, where the story will also revolve around multiplayer abilities...

S'what I heard on the grapevine anyway.

You'll be waiting some time - I heard 2004 for GTA4 at the earliest. This could all just be hearsay though, as I can't find any info to back it up online. Anyone seen any news?

Having pretty much finished ViceCity for the PS2, I now feel a hole.. one I now that only GTA4 can fill!

My flatmate suggested I do GTA3 now (PS2) to keep me going, but I just can't be arsed.. IMO GTA3 it isn't the game that VC is.

Although I know VC for the PC will never feature a proper multiplayer mode, I can't wait to see if someone can patch it like they have done with GTA3.

confirmed. the pc version does not have multiplayer. the only 'additions' to the pc version are the usual mp3 player and skin changer. It does run REALLY well though, runs like bliss on my main pc and even on my old old server (PIII 700, gf2 mx400) it runs at 800x600 with more or less no slowdown. (not that i already have vice city on pc or anything, er....honest :D) This was the main problem with GTA3, that even on uber pc's it ran like a dog, they seem to have fixed that nicely.

Got hold of a copy yesterday. Its runs fine but the on my system the textures are all currupt, kinda looks like a bomb has dropped on the city. I seem to remember having this problem with GTA3 but not how I solved it. Any ideas?

L33
15-05-2003, 01:16 PM
oh dear, someone has a warez copy dont they!!! That corrupt textures problem is caused by the fact that your slightly less than legal copy was badly cracked when released. There are fixes...... Best option is to go and buy the game

balasco
15-05-2003, 01:48 PM
I have an original copy. Double CD one for INSTALL(black CD) one for PLAY(white CD), inside covers opens out like a book and slides into the outer cover. How about 'GTAVC/PCSLIPCASE/E' thats next to the barcode on the back of the box. Want the barcode number?

Bit of advice. GTA Vice City PC is in the shops (as of yesterday). You just have to ask the Manager extra nicely to get a copy as they are not really supposed to sell till Friday.

15-05-2003, 03:18 PM
balasco,
does your 'original' :u19 copy of GTA support any other controller options? i.e. Steering Wheel. If I remember rightly, was the only thing about GTA3 that I hated. Wheel was not supported.

balasco
15-05-2003, 06:03 PM
Doesn't mention anything about a wheel. The standard controls are mapped for use with a gamepad though.

Yes, thats an original manual! :eek:

:u03 lol im only messing around with you, im sorry! Oh and i have my copy, it says: "Ritek 52x Gold CD-R media" and "www.ritek.com" and "Grand.Theft.Auto.Vice.City*fixed*-FLT". your is SO fake.
:u22


.......for legal purposes that is just a backup of my original copy. honest. Right, im off to get some ronseal for my wooden leg, then ill stop off on the way back to get some food for polly (my parrot). Oh and i must see about a new eye patch.....

balasco
15-05-2003, 06:10 PM
This must be where that manual came from then?

15-05-2003, 06:11 PM
that picture is so clearly fake

Gibbler
15-05-2003, 06:11 PM
L33: Perhaps you should try engaging your brain before spouting accusations. You'll find that people don't take kindly to being accused of breaking the law.

FYI, I believe the first warez release of VC to appear was by Fairlight and was a full 2-cd ISO image set. This would be unlikely to have corrupt textures, so there goes that theory.

And no, before you trace my IP and call F.A.S.T, I haven't got the Fairlight or any version of VC for that matter. Since I'd almost finished the PS2 version I didn't see much point in shelling out 40 again unless someone made a decent multiplayer patch.

Later,
Gibbs

PS: That photo is obviously genuine. Are you really that ****ing stupid or what?

PPS: You have already answered the above question.

LOL!! its a ****ing joke, lighten up.. jeez some people

Gibbler
15-05-2003, 06:19 PM
Ah, of course yes. How could we have missed your sharp witt and evolved sense of humour in your original post, where you in fact appeared to be accusing someone of piracy?

Our fault of course.

If you really DID mean it as a joke, it was not only poorly executed but in bad taste. Why not try making some helpful suggestions instead of being an arse?

L33
15-05-2003, 06:25 PM
it was obvious i was joking, how the hell could that photograph/manual be a fake.

FYI, I believe the first warez release of VC to appear was by Fairlight and was a full 2-cd ISO image set. This would be unlikely to have corrupt textures, so there goes that theory. Considering you are so knowledgeable and right about everything, you would know if you visited nForce forums that there WAS a problem with this release on certain video cards, and it was down to an improperly cracked executable.
And before anybody says anything about piracy, there is no harm in reading nforce forums to see screenies and hear about the game....

Edit: case closed.

Gibbler
15-05-2003, 06:45 PM
Look L33, stop trying to squirm your miserable way out of this.

You blatantly accused someone of piracy. As I said, if it was a joke it was obviously in bad taste since poor balasco felt compelled to take a photo of his product and post it to prove his innocence, when he'd done nothing to indicate that he had a dodgy copy.

In fact, this whole sorry saga started because YOU were looking at posts regarding problems with the cracked version! If you hadn't done then you wouldn't have known about this video corruption with the dodgy version and wouldn't have accused balasco, whether incorrectly or not!

Case closed, I think.

BADGERING THE WITNESS!

Maggy
15-05-2003, 06:53 PM
just a quickie, 2 things
are u on a radeon?
and have u turned the frame limiter off?

cos i get masses of texture trouble (bad clipping) if the frame limiter is off.

L33
15-05-2003, 07:02 PM
omg maggy u swashbuckling warez pirate(!)

OK. to seriously help you balasco:

1. Try what maggy said
2. Disable AA if you have it enabled (have seen a few cases of this causing clipping&texture probs in VC
3. Back when GTA3 was released, there were 2 windows XP patches. 1 for corrupt text, and 1 for corrupt textures / polygons. I think these were put in SP1, so try installing that (if you havent already), and download as many relevant updates as you can from http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
4. Wait for tonight when the new ATi catalyst 3.4's are released (of your a radeon owner), or if you have an nvidia card upgrade (or downgrade) the drivers.

good luck

WTF NOW??? 1st i joke and get flamed for it, fair enough. then i actually try to help the guy with valid tips and im a moron?? what a shit community, i was expecting better from gameon. someone pls just remove my account from your forums, what a bunch of stuck up arseholes (apologies to the other members). sod ever going to a gameon lan, ill find a lan community where people have a sense of humour, where people who registered 5 days ago have a little respect for longer-standing members (yes i re-registered with a new account in march) and where people are appreciative of advice.

balasco
15-05-2003, 07:19 PM
Nope, still no joy. Wierd thing is GTA3 runs fine on my system, no clipping or corruption. In terms of graphics they both look the same, but one works and the other er..doesn't work.

I have a Geforce FX5600. This is the only game I have that gives me grief.

I've emailed Take Two about this, but in the meantime If anyone gets a solution for this it would be much appreciated.

As for GTA VC - I had it for PS2 until sat morning where i traded it in and got the PC version for 10 which was great - its loads better and I only got 1/2 - 2/3 of the way thru on the PS2 so there is plenty to still do.

The loading and shit allways pissed me off so im much happier.

A new beginning (YaMM meets MTA)

Well, as some of you already may have read or overheard the talks, I write this to make everything official.

The MTA and YaMM teams are merging into a single powerhouse. Discussions and negotiations took place over a number of days and we believe we have struck a deal that will be truly amazing. We will be merging into the MTA community and unfortunately, the YaMM name will "die".

Each team has brought 5 members and many of the other members will become first-hand betatesters that will still be heavily involved in the development of the mod. (If you haven't been contacted, contact Cray)

The team:

From YaMM: Remboooo, Sintax, Cray, AJH, RISO
From MTA: TermNL, Blokker, Kent, trx, IJsVogel
Beta Testers (From YaMM): siwu, iceangel, Dark Ghost

We are sorry for all of those affected by this merge, but we do believe it will be an amazing product when the two teams fully merge and we begin heavy development.

I hope all of you continue to support YaMM through the MTA community and continue to be such loyal fans. We truly do appreciate all of you.

Long live YaMM ... as MTA!!!

Okay people... most of you just aren't getting this and alot of time and space is waisted on this forum...

Here are my instructions in 30 easy steps!

1)Buy GTA3!

2)Install GTA3

3)Download MTA from www.multitheftauto.com

4)Download ASE(All-Seeing Eye) if you don't already have it the link is in the FAQ section of www.multitheftauto.com

5)install ASE

6)Run ASE's first time stuff and it'll find most of the games compatable with it (GTA2:MTA will not)

7)When all that is done and ASE is on your screen hit F2

8)Select the "Games" tab

9)Expand the Non-Installed Section

10)Find GTA3:MTA and click it once

11)On the options right of the selections area Check the box "Visable in filter list"

12)Under the "Program Location" box select "Browse"

13)Find the program "mta.exe" in your GTA folder, Hit "Open"

14)Then Select "Okay"

YOU'VE NOW GOT IT ON ASE!

15)Select GTA3:MTA and click the "Refresh" button at the top (Button row, 7th from the left w/blue and red circular arrows)

16)Try to find a server with 2+ people on and a low ping.

17)Click on the server you wish to use then hold CTRL and press C

18)Open the "GTA3 Launcher" of your desktop and select "GTA3 MTA"

19)Let GTA# load and select "Start Game"

20)Alt+Tab back into windows and go to the "Exit Sub" window

21)Fill in your Nick[name] and click in the area to send a chat message.

22)Hold CTRL and press V

23)Copy the FIRST set of numbers (before the ":") and type it into the first box underneath "server ip"

24)Now, type the SECOND set of numbers (after the ":") and type it into the second box under "server ip"

25)Hit "Connect to server"

26)Alt+Tab Back into GTA3 and select "Start MultiTheftAuto"

27)If the credits continue to roll repeatedly Alt+Tab back into the "GTA3 - MultiTheftAuto" window and click on "Send Game Request"

28)Alt+Tab back into GTA3

29)HAVE FUN!

30)Come back to this forum and share your graditude by keeping it at the top so newbies can get on also

ALL you NEED 2 KNOW about MTAv0.3b on HOW 2 JOIN & WHAT 2 DO!!

Noobs, take your time & read this carefully!!!
L33ters read what you need.(*)

====

Hey everyone,

Since there probably are many peeps () having problems to handle MTAv0.3b, having trouble figuring out the mta-GUI & sorts, ...I decided to launch a new topic on the 'General MTA discussion' forum !
...I 2 want 2 learn a few tips/tricks as possible... ...so do do the needed if you plz and Post'm Here.(just Some Idiaz 2 Do Multilike would D fine also)( speak:"lets..." ).
I'm shure many'll get helped here in getting MTAv0.3b to work on there PC!!

So ... I GUESS \\// this topic \\// may be long, but shure it shall help ALO(t)!

==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ====
(*)IF SOME DON'T WANT TO READ EVERTHING!(Though there're many interesting issue's.) I insist you read question (B), as it contains a great/logical TIP I noticed ingame (on my PC) to see other players moving again!! And maybe (c) to post.
==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ====

Preword:

First off all as far as I know, The MTA Team gives, by releasing its GTA3:MTA modification, the Community the opportunity to (test-)play MTAv0.3b. Allready (partially) supported to choos a team & play a Deathmatch(DM)-typed game against all other players OVER the innernet. (for noobs: DM =all_you_can('t)_kill_!!!)
...and you can offcourse shoot(+-), race, punch n chat against/with other players. nice

Tip!: Do NOT choose MAFIA team, Bcause Mafia is the bugged team. It could cause more difficulty staying ingame! Choose Diablo!!
Allthough some people say they don't have any problems with it.

There's really nothing wrong with MTAv0.3b, there're only few bugs in it. It's being worked on, allthough ;)them bugs can smthz be pretty amusing.
(Netcoding witch'll reduce lag fo everyone, especially for 28K-connectiontypes, is what is mainly worked on for future release.)
To be honest (for now) a good connection type would be prefferable. I mention again it's being rlly worked on for Mta's next release.

The MAIN PROBLEMS/QUESTIONS, so I have sensed, ARE the FOLLOWING:

(A) HOW DOO I START/CONNECT WITH MTAv0.3b ?? << noobs!!!!!
(B) I PLAYED WITH OTHERS, BUT AFTER A WHILE THE WEREN'T MOVING ANYMORE ??
(C) WHAT DO I DO INSIDE THE GAME ??
(D) HOW DOO I CHAT [INGAME] ??


I've made this post BIG & detailed. BUT. I also shortened it a bit, right here:

(A) HOW DOO I START/CONNECT WITH MTAv0.3b ?? << noobs!!!!!
(1) Use ASE to find(copie) an (server) IP to join a game.
(2) Click GTA Launcher.
(3) Click GTA3MTA button.(don't connect Yet!)
(4) Sart New Game ->> Sart Multi Theft Auto ->> SEE credits, then push Alt+Tab.
(5) 128KB (14kB/s), check version, fill in nick, type/paste IP.
(6) Press 'Connect to Server' button!, Press 'Send Game request' button!
(7) Choose Diablo team, and do as explaned in detail.

(B) I PLAYED WITH OTHERS, BUT AFTER A WHILE THE WEREN'T MOVING ANYMORE ??
-> Read it in detail!(below)

(C) WHAT DO I DO INSIDE THE GAME ??
-> Read it in detail!
-> Also post other suggestion on this topic!

(D) HOW DOO I CHAT [INGAME] ??
->type '/in <message>'.(without the quotes(='') ofcourse!!) => ex. /in hello.

==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ====

==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ====

(A) HOW DOO I START/CONNECT WITH MTAv0.3b ?? -> untill you'dd see real players playing/moving/interacting!! (not ot talk bout seeing cheaters online)

!!!First you NEED AllSeeingEye (ASE)!!! ->(2 find internet games with)

==== ====

YOU DON'T HAVE ASE PROPERLY INSTALLED & WORKING !! No Panic!

Setting up ASE(AllSeeingEye) is the only part I won't explane.
But don wurry on "??How to set up ASE??", there are explanations/places on the forum you can easelly find all you need.
You better FIRST Go figure out (easy to use -) ASE first & come lookback here a bit later on.

====
LOOK at these ASE Topic's on forum TO GET STARTED:
http://forum.multitheftauto.com/viewtopic.php?t=1586(untill "Zeno"'s step 14!)
http://forum.multitheftauto.com/viewtopic.php?t=1157(or check out what "ME"'s postss!)
Or Jlook thrue the forumz!
====

_The_Nothing_
20-07-2003, 10:38 PM
As there are no other programme's (th I know off) to find MTA servers online , You will def need to download AllSeeingEye @ the ASE-webpage:

Download ASE: http://www.udpsoft.com/eye2/index.html (dl from N. America or Europe)

==== ====

YOU HAVE ASE PROPERLY INSTALLED & WORKING !!

As from now you can start with step (1).

(1)

Use a programme called ASE (AllSeeingEye), you can find a Game!

You only use this programme for 2/3 things:

1. Finding a online-game with an amount of players!

How & Where, you say??

->Highlight/Select 'GTA3:MTA'!
->On the left window in ASE. Selecting an installed the game; 'GTA3:MTA'!
Then you push the 'refesh button'(or just push F5)
NOW you should see a list off servers, running at this moment!


2. Copying a server'ip of a servers you want to join.(ex.217.89.233.63:2003).
[Keep in mind you only need the 1e part(217.89.233.63) of the IP to paste into 1e "server ip" textbox. As the second is default(2003) allready filled in at the GUI.]

There are 3 Ways on how you can easally fill in the 'server ip' textbox?
(when GTA3MTA is clicked & a window shows, that's what called an the mta-GUI) (= a client(=you) connection interface)

OR Just type in IP: 217.89.233.63
OR Highlight your choise of server in ASE and rightmouse -> Copy to clipboard -> Server Adress Ctrl+C
OR Highlight your choise of server in ASE and pressing Ctrl+C to copie. yc?


(Read 3., if you want to, because it doesn't work!! I guess. Maybe it'll lateron.)

3. Now this would have been easiest, but it won't work really proper.
You can connect to servers via ASE by a simple dubbleclick(or F9) on the server. It will launch your GTA3.exe automatically. But don't ask me how you "send a game request"!? using ASE , nor also using GUI (because it will only lauch another gta3.exe, etc).
->Beats me !?

REMARQUE: If ASE would 'Send Game request' automatically when connected to server as a player, that would be great.
I guess they'll inplement it 2, you know

==== ==== ==== ==== ====

(2)

Click the GTA3 Launcher icon. (witch You have downloaded from http://www.multitheftauto.com/downloads.php?ordner_id=1 & installed into your GTAIII folder)
(So GTA3 Launcher: will be located in the folder you installed MTAv0.3b; this should be Rockstar Games/GTAIII; when you have found it, copy it to your desktop!)

==== ==== ==== ==== ====

(3)

Now click onto GTA3MTA button (choice2 out off 6choices): to launch:

the MTA programme (the GUI=MTA popup window).
GTA3.exe ,that is emmediatly after, automatically minimalized.

( Me!?, I found the automatic minimalizing really NOT nessecary, allthough minimallizing GTA3 was put in to allow confort. Yes, it's a confort! Still the auto-minimalizing could be left out, because i allways go in gta first untill the Credits, before I try my first connection attempt.)

==== ==== ==== ==== ====

(4)

TIP: I suggest you also do what I find much easier & quicker, by just going ingame(gta3.exe) again untill the Credits >> (so Maxamize after auto-Minimized !! )...

HOW, you say ??

Click the GTA3.exe (desktop) to Sart New Game, Sart Multi Theft Auto untill you see the MTA Team's Credits.(that's all). ...and THEN I minimalize (= Alt+Tab) (don't push Esc first = NOT nesseccarry!)
Next, it is time to (fin) connect! -> (5).

==== ==== ==== ==== ====

(5)

Now in mta-GUI: (GUI = MTA console):

Always (& everyone) leave the "connection type(upload)" to its default. 128KB (14kB/s)!!
(this IS recommended by Trx; Mta develloper)

Check what GTA Version you got (v0.1 or v1.1).
(v1.1 = GTA3 upgrade with the gta3patch1.1 -> search with google if needed)
(I play with version0.1!: and all works fine!)

Fill in ya'nick(-name) in the "nick textbox" in GUI.
(you are capable of using 14 characters in your nickname, Bware!! there is possible minimum off characters also!!)
[this could be a (if not the) problem for some peeps]

Paste (ctrl+v) the IP you copied from ASE (see (1)) into the "IP textbox" in GUI.
Carefull it will paste ###.###.###.###:#### and you only need ###.###.###.### .

==== ==== ==== ==== ====

(6)

1. Press 'Connect to Server' button!

YOU WAIT TO EVENTUALLY SEE the following:

!!!
Waiting for request
Assigned ID: 2
Gametype: DM
Connection found, ping received
!!!

OR

!!!
Look for ORANGE LED, indicating your connectionstatus:
(on the right side next to'Connection Status')
-> LED IS ON/ORANGE: you ARE connected !
-> LED ISN'T OFF/ORANGE: you AREN'T connected !
!!!

&

2. Press 'Send Game request' button!
(do not press this button when you didn't see the credits yet)

====
This Step (6) should almost never fail.(ifstepsRfollowdcorr!)
If it DOES FAIL:

Fully recheck atleast step number (5) again!
OR
Its probably the server you CANNOT connect to!
(you can get an error message; my intuition always tells my it's due to the server OR the server sjust 2 far away from your hometown !!)
(A better PC or Connection-type could help here. Sorry, but that's how it is, sometimes.)

====
====
Oh, yeah, ussually, at this moment on, you could type a little announcement into the (outgame-)chatbox: ex. You type '/in hi there'.
Can also read (D) to learn the chat.

Now it's finally time to play!

Click on your GTA3 (blow your desktop) 2 return too the MTA Credits again. And there! w8 3 secs.
You should NOW notice you can choose a Team. (Again, choose Diablo!!, Mafia has a bug!!). So Step into the blue (diablo-)marker!

When you spawn at the Diablo's hideout, you take a look at you radar. You should NOW see some other players appearing. They are represented by GREEN DOTS (moving/not-moving):

If GREEN DOTS/Players ARE moving:

Congratulations, you are IN! & you "can" read (B) if U wish OR just go out n play!

If GREEN DOTS/Players AREN't moving:

You can do the following:
1. press eEsc
2. press Alt+Tab
3. choose the MTA console (GUI) and press DISCONNECT
4. press CONNECT
5. press SEND game request
6. return to the game and you will see peapole playing again! So you can read (B)
How, you say?? -> alt+Tab too gta3 or click gta3 blow your desktop

====
You should NOW be able to see and play with the other players, who are NOW REALLY showing to be moving!
If not!?, try DISCONNECTING and RECONNECTING again.
If still not, DISCONNECT!, EXIT all! & TRY again.
Or connect to another server. Maybe also trying another nick.
====

==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ====
==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ====

(B) I PLAYED WITH OTHERS, BUT AFTER A WHILE THE WEREN'T MOVING ANYMORE ??


OR 1:

You can:
1. press eEsc
2. press Alt+Tab
3. choose the MTA console (GUI) and press DISCONNECT
4. press CONNECT
5. press SEND game request
6. return to the game and you will see peapole playing again! So you can reAD (B).
How, you say?? -> alt+Tab too gta3 or click gta3 blow your desktop
again!

====

OR 2:

-> = TIP, I'M almost POSSITIVE OFF! And I quote 'almost', not 100%!
-> The dissapearing off the (non-moving)dots CAUSES reappearance off some !MOVING! greendots/players again !!!

I ask, Do try to understand! This is Actually a pretty logical TIP.
This TIP doesn't always work, but I post it, because I've seen many players reappear by it.
Goal is to get NOT-MOVING players in losing all their healt, so that it CAUSES dissappearing from radar. And reappearance again!!!! (NOT Always!)
(non-moving players = when you see a Tommy Vercetti walking against a wall, just acting stupid n s**t)

When you notice the players aren't moving anymore, you just keep yourself bussy wasting as much non-moving players, getting your PC to know the player's currnet data.
(as if the current data reaches your PC correctly again, you can see allz working well now)(you can play gainst/with others now without having to DIS-and RECONNECT Again !!!!!)

So most important is to make sure the green dot (or the player & its'Blue arrow pointing above its head if you like) on the radar disapeares!

HOW?

You can park-kill (most effective) Or road-kill them really fast, by running them over (prefferably slowly), parking your car ontop, with the (I normally park my car & get another car, since the disappearing takes a while.)
There NOW should be a/some player(s) vissible again. Or in an little amount off patience.

====

_The_Nothing_
20-07-2003, 10:42 PM
DOWNSIDE:

The green dots, who appear to be visible on your radar, could just also represent a player who disconnected shortly (i guess ).
Then you are actually trying this TIP WITHOUT actually "getting someWhere".
This could get anoying, and can be due to an error. So if this is the case, you'll know it after pressing Alt+Tab, reading the error in Windows.

What I mean is, killing dots/arrows won't ALWAYS solve 2 see other mov again emmediatly!
You'dd have to participate a bit to make some more arrows/dots fanish from ya'radar. Or notice quick enough there is an error taking place!
====

==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ====
==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ====

(C) WHAT DO I DO INSIDE THE GAME ??


search & approach those green dots on the radar
get yourself a bus, driving That for once.
just RAM!
(You can also do nothing and just verveel (US accent) yourself!!) Hehee
Just breaking some glass windows with another player, each in a car !!
And fight your arses off together, to win by breaking the last glass window standing near Portland metro-entrance) -> little laugh , ..., )
Ram another again and Do all the possible to flip his car over ->> he has to crawl out ->> You mostly CAN'T (road-)kill him.
->REMARQUE ON that:
I noticed When raming & player's car flips over, he get's out, bug seem 2 take over.
You notice the player's data is lost again, so You can start doing the TIP [explained in (B)nr.2] again!
BUT HOWEVER!, sometomes the player reappears automaticly, me being surprized he didn't have to crawl out off his car afteral! I like!

TIP 2 use in MTAv0.3b: (That's allready beeing done!)
By just using ingamechat with outgamechat you can try to get somebody's attention. Get him to talk to you about sth (Race, ...) you wanna Do/Suggest what you'r both could prob be in for. Chat!


-> maybe some more examples/suggestions: Do post 'zzz.

Race to stauton, starting at Tunnel, allowing to go your own freakin route! You first aggree (thrue chat) to race back to the sarting point(tunnel)! And maybe chant about it later on.
!More player should garrantee to B more fun!
A race from the policestation in Portland to the other in Staunton! Sarting from anywhere!!
->Chat!!; aggree!!; type '/in R U R, Set, GoGoGOOO!'.
A (multi-) subway-race!
Following each other around, doing some Wild_Stunt_Jumps ontop off, onto-, into-, over Objects OR -Places.
you can also DOthink off other things:idea:yourself... & post them Here!

==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ====
==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ==== ====

(D)HOW DOO I CHAT [INGAME] ??


AAAAh.
So you are also capable off typing a [INGAME]Message. Textmessage that will be displayed ingame, for other players to see.

Just by typing '/in <yourmessage>' or '/me <yourmessage>' (without the quotes).
(/me displayes a message starting your nick followed by your message)
(/in displayes a ingame-message starting your nick followed by your message ingame)
It even doesn't matter were you put /in into your sentence.

->Maybe an example:

If you want to type "hi, everyone", just type /in hi everyone. And your messages will be printed ingame for others to See/Read!

->The only DOWNSIDE about the chat-option is that you can only write it @ the outgame chat. (there being worked on a voice chat in next release)
So you gotta Alt+Tab every time.
BUT, it's Still handy to tell some1 where you wanna meet OR just to say '/in hi'.

->The reason there isn't put in a ingamechatoption during yourplay ingame,is because I think the keys (=buttons if you like) you use to type, are the same keys you use to play gta3.
(ex. if your f-key is set to enter a car (on your gta3).And you are standing near a car while you type. You WILL enter that car when you the the 'f' in your <message>!

The gta-keys can'T be unbinded in "easy_mode" in GTA, while a (type/read_ingame-)chatoption is running!
Allthough I remarque it, it wouldn' have bothered me much if The MTA Team wouldn't have left it out from Mtav0.2. But I'm sure they have their reasons.

P.S.: -> you can still put the ingamechat ON/OFF. I guess it's used to if you set other players'messages to be shown or not for U.
(textmessages shown in the left, upper corner off the screen during game)
Shift+Z = Chat/textmessages On.
Shift+X = Chat/textMessages Off.

For some reason now i can't open a newgame instead it says multi theft auto. Even though i disconnect for the sever and tried re-downloading it. but its not working what should i do?

you may have been a little clearer by saying that you can't play GTA3 SINGLE PLAYER...

Install MTA, run launcher.exe, and hit GTA3: SP.

installing instructions:
you download the mta 0.3b installer place it in some folder (not the gta3 folder!) install it TO THE GTA3 FOLDER, then you use the launcher and press on the mta button, it starts gta and the mta client, close gta and client, download ase (the all seeing eye get it from here after setting up ase start gta start a new game you will see the mta credits role alt tab to ase connect to a server it will launch the mta client with the correct ip after the mta client connects press on the "send game request button" should work then.

1. They develop the whole thing in their FREE time. It's not their job!!! They are not paid for it nor do they receive any other benefit from it! They do it because they like to do. And that is what you all should respect!

2. This software is in development stage atm. Noone forces you to install it. This is not a final version!! Every alpha version has lots of bugs that have to be fixed.

:: F.A.Q :: for GTA MultTheft Auto boards (http://forum.multitheftauto.com/faq.php)

If you are using windows 98 or 98 se and are experiancing problems with MTA just leave a brief description of the problems you are having here. The admin will take all your problems into account and will fix them in time. Just keep the descriptions short to keep bandwidth down. Many many thanks to the sensible members on this great forum.

The manual wasn't very helpful so I decided to make this topic. Someone PLEASE go through the steps in a very detailed fashion on how to find and join a game. Act like the people you are talking to are idiots....I don't have a clue what ASE is but the manual seems to think everyone does....so please talk to me like I am a child. Explain to me:

1. how to find a game
2. how to join

Please be very detailed!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
before you start: I reccomend HIGHLY that you make a clean install of GTA3!!!!!!!

okay... here we go!

first, go to www.udpsoft.com/eye
get the ASE program, and install it.

now, go to www.multitheftauto.com, and get MTA

Install mta into the SAME FOLDER as gta3.exe... otherwise it won't work.

good so far?

okay... open up launcher.exe from the GTA3 folder... (C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTA III\launcher.exe)

select GTA3 MTA

GTA3 will start up, and the MTA program will go. close 'em both up.

Now, we need to set up ASE, so that it works with MTA.

Open up ASE, and answer all of the wiz's questions... Up until the point where it gets to listing the games.

First check the installed programs list, for GTA3: MTA (not MTA... I took 10 minutes before I realized that G comes before M)

If GTA3: MTA is there (which it wasn't for me), then under 'program location' click browse...

Find mta.exe (should be at C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTA III\mta.exe), and select it.

Make sure that 'Visible in filter list' is checked, and go next

If GTA3: MTA isn't there, then look under 'Not Installed', for GTA3: MTA, then do the same thing as above.

****If GTA3: MTA is not in either list (remember, it starts with a G), then make sure you have the latest version of ASE, then post in the forum for help****

Alright... you're juuuust about there.

Click on GTA3:MTA in the sidebar on the left.

Click the little refresh button on the toolbar.

Servers should start popping up.

Double click on a server, and the MTA program will start.

Now that you have the MTA program started, start GTA3, and click 'start game' 'start multi theft auto'

wait for it to load, and use Alt-Tab to switch back to the MTA program.

Click 'connect to server'.

Wait.

Hopefully, messages like this will pop up:

Welcome to MTA
Version 0.3 (Build 5291127-G)
Connecting to server
Waiting for request
Assigned ID: 1
Gametype: DM
Connection found, ping received

If only something like this pops up:

Welcome to MTA
Version 0.3 (Build 5291127-G)
Connecting to server
Waiting for request


then try a different server, or disconnect and reconnect.


I'm assuming that everything is working okay, and you get the first messages.

Now, if you switch to GTA3, you'll see...!!!!

credits.

frack.


switch back to MTA, and click 'send game request'.

a message should say "sending game request"


switch back to GTA3, and wait about 30 seconds... if the credits don't stop, and you don't appear, then try a different server, or disconnect/reconnect, or try 'sending a game request' again. Before you do any of these things though, I've got a quick thing at the bottom of this... FAQ?... it's very important, and you might be able to tell what's wrong. (actually, it's not at the bottom. it's just a little ways up... you can find it by looking for lots of *******'s....)

Alright. Assuming you got it all going, and you appeared on a rooftop, walk to the MAFIA SIDE.
*****Do not go to the Diablo side! apparently (though it has not been a problem for me) there is a bug that causes problems if you are diablo*****

Now. you should appear, all nice and dandy. hop in a car, and have fun

but wait a second... where are the other players?
you look on the radar, and see a tight cluster of blips, but go there, and you don't see anyone!

alright... a lot of you won't have this problem. But it happened to me, and it seems to be an annoying lack-of-feature thing... MTA doesn't tell you if you've been disconnected. It just sits there going "oh.. look at that. I just disconnected. how sad. I best not alert my master to this. I'll simply stop that little orange button from blinking."


************************************************** ***********
oh ya.. that possible answer for the credits not going? Right here.
************************************************** ***********

so what do you do? switch back to the MTA program, and check the little thing next to 'connection status'. If it's orange, and doesn't blink every once in a while, then disconnect and reconnect, or find a different server.

If it's blinking... well, disconnect and reconnect, or find a different server.

If it's white... then disconnect and reconnect, or find a different server. (I forget exactly what white means... I think it was that there never was a connection in the first place... I'll get back to you on that one (actually, I won't... I'm a lazy slob.... I'm supposed to be doing schoolwork right now), but for now, just go with the good ol' "disconnect and reconnect, or find a different server" method )

Okay... it should work now.

Post in this topic if you need me to change anything, or if you find a new fix... it doesn't really help much to ask for answers to your problems, as I don't know much more than what I've written.

oh ya... some of the stuff here might be wrong, but it's just a quick FAQ, so don't quote me on it.

EVERYONE seems to be confused about the people on the roof. who are they? are they peds? are they other players?

both, sort of.

When you join a server, you become one of those people on the roof.

You are then teleported to the other roof, where you choose your team.

Another way to think about it: you are an evil, mind-taking over alien thing.

Those players on the roof are your hosts.

You join the server, and you take over the mind of your host.

Then, by magic, you're transported on top of a building, where you get to choose which kind of other mind-stealing alien things you want to be friends with. (a.k.a. choosing your team)

simple as dat (at least I THINK that's correct... I'm 85% certain that's how it works.)

Have fun!

i want to set up a game so that i can play my friend. but how do i set this game up? and can i set a name for my server game?

Download the server from www.guardians.ch/ggm

change things like Servername, port, Maximum of Player,... in the ggmserver.cfg (open with notepad)

now run the ggmserver.exe

(If Your Server shuts down often, download the ServerRestarter from http://gta3Tournament.3rdlevel.de)

Hi people, I'm new here. I've just got GTA3 and i'm enjoying to play, this is a great game.

Since 2days, I'm trying to play online but Only 2times I played on it.

So now, I wonder how make my own server to play online or with people on LAN.

If anyone knows 'bout that, could you help ?

Thanks a lot.

1)Server Win32
2)upzip it
3)click right on ggmserver.cfg, chose to open it in notepad or something and put the right things on the right places

example:
~~~~~
# GoE GTA Multiplayer Server Configuration
##############################################

#ServerName
# Name of the serve, will be visible on the global online server list
ServerName= www.noreason.tk | www.vicetown.tk (soon)
#maxClients
# Maximum allowed players on your server (can be up to 32)
maxclients=8

#AccounceServer
# True = list this server on the global online server list
# False = this is a private server, it won't be on the global server list (default)
AnnounceServer=TRUE


#GameType
# Sets the type of game for all players on this server
# 0 = Deathmatch (default)
GameType=0


#Port
# Sets which connection port for the server to listen on, derfault is 16309
Port=16309
~~~~~

4)close this file and save it!
5)run ggmserver
6)if you have a firewall, you must give right to enter the enternet
7)normally you are standing on the list you can find on the site of GGM

--> that's all folks

================================================== ================================================== ======================================

There is a config file which you have to edit: ggmserver.cfg
If it is missing then create one with the following lines:
ServerName=Place your server name here
maxclients=32
AnnounceServer=true
Port=16309
WelcomeMessage=This message will be shown on every client


Server Win32 can be found on the downloads

Version 01b is out....i only made a few improvement, so i didn't want to start a new topic for that.....

- ggmfind can now give the number of players on each server found

-can now find servers listening on ports 10000 to 17000 (including ports 1 to 65535 wouldn't increase search time that much, but is totaly useless)

futur improvements:

-possibility to choose between multiple ethernet interfaces

-multicast through multiple nets/subnets

MTA was the first MP mod for GTA3. After a lot of hoaxes someone finally made one. After a bit of work IJsVogel created GTA3AM (now known as MTA0.1). It was a limited version with only 2 players and no walking support.

MTA 0.2 came fast after 0.1 with a better GUI and a lot of bug fixes but still with the same game play limitations.

The team grew and we started working on 0.3b. After a lot of technical changes we finally made it possible to walk, shoot, fly and do other stuff. MTA 0.3b had it all but there were also a lot of bugs and even worse : a lot of lag.

The team didn't gave up because of this problems and started working on MTA:0.3.5 and also on MTA:VC, our mod for GTA:VC with a completely new code (C++ instead of VB) and a new net code with no lag at this moment.

What the future holds? Only time will tell!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MTA is created by a team of volunteers working for free and independent from any game company. All we ask in return for this mod is the respect of the people who use it since a lot of free time is invested.

New downtime (24/07/2003 @ 23:42 CET) by Webmaster
We are expecting new downtime of all systems (website, forum, IRC) starting saturdaynight at midnight CET. For hopefull no more than 6 hours.

Our server is being moved from one datacenter to another together with a bunch of other ones, Priorweb (the company from which we hire the server) has had enough of our ISP after the last DDOS attack and left us with litle options.

There is more bad news. Due to this move we will get new IP adressess. This mean we will be unavailable for some ppl for quite a while (up to 48h) We can not give our new ip adress because it will be determend when the server gets installed in the new centre

update:

I opend a forum topic, read it here (http://forum.multitheftauto.com/viewtopic.php?p=20990#20990)

Wooo whooo about time man looks like they are gonna all team up and make up on hell of a multi-player mod check this out guy's this is gonna be something to keep an eye out for man this is gonna kick some major ASS hehehehe





The team from the GTA World Online (http://www.digitalhunger.com/~gtavc/portal/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=6) - Mod (GTA:WO) asked if GTAT wants to support this mod.
I think that playing GTA VC and GTA 3 online (with only VC running) will be great and so we decided to support GTA:WO.

GTAT is a mod which changes the main.scm and so we gonna release a GameCodingLanguage. This GCL is running on servers and will make it easy to create Mission-Scripts for Online and Multiplayer Mods, and all this WITHOUT changing the main.scm on your PC.

Until this GCL is implemented in the server, Redspike from the GTA:WO-Team made some main.scm gamemodes, which you gonna have in the soooon GTAT VC 0.3 release.

Cya, DracoBlue

GTA San Andreas (http://www.gta-sanandreas.com/)

Welcome To GTA-SanAndreas.com

Hopefully this site will be one of the best resources for GTA : San Andreas Information. This was the first Fan Site to go up about GTA San Andreas.

Grand Theft Auto : San Andreas is what many people expect to be the next GTA game, and so do I which is why I have made this site. It may not look very good to some people, because there's not much on it, but there's nothing to put on it seeing as how Rockstar haven't released any info abut the game yet. Once info is released the site will take off big time, and hopefully it will attract a lot of visitors as we countdown to the release of GTA : San Andreas.

I DO NOT WORK FOR ROCKSTAR! STOP ASKING ME WHEN THE GAMES OUT OR WHAT'S GONNA BE IN IT!!!

Thanx to VCDL for making the Banner for the site.

*Added 'Realtime' option
*Fixed problems with Magnitude multiplier
*Fixed scroll-bars (SmallChange = 1)
*Changed Test buttons to F7 & F8 because of conflict with Trainer
*Better error handling on start-up

- Whats new in version 1.1 on 8/9/03?

*New detection that fixes problems with damage-proof cars
*The game controls the magnitude for Collisions - varied magnitude
*Full gun feedback when firing with anything
