    Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas 1.5.7 is released Today we are proud to announce the release of MTA:SA 1.5.7. You will receive an automatic update soon, but if you don't have MTA installed, you can get it from the home page. This is the final release to support Windows XP and Vista — if you still use Windows XP or Vista, upgrade Windows now. We are also looking for a web designer to help us create a new website! Statistics Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas turned 10 years old last week. Happy birthday! This is the 24th 1.x.x release 359 days since our last release 27 new functions 4 new events 117+ bug fixes and changes 540+ commits 30 contributors, of which 7 are new 64+ total contributors Download This release is backwards compatible with the older 1.5.x releases (1.5.6, 1.5.5, all the way to 1.5). However, if you would like to take advantage of all of these useful changes, you will need to go and download the update! Servers: binaries are available. Do not forget to update your default resources. Highlights This release includes many additions, improvements, and fixes: New drawing functions dxDrawPrimitive and dxDrawMaterialPrimitive Improved performance Fix swimming speed on higher FPS Skimmers can now lift off water at high FPS New events onClientWorldSound, onClientPedStep, onClientVehicleWeaponHit Surface property functions like engineSetSurfaceProperties and much more! Read the 1.5.7 release notes for a complete set of changes and more information about the improvements listed above. Watch or star our GitHub repository to keep on top of all the things we're working on. Important future script changes From 1.6 onwards we will be making at least the following changes: callRemote callbacks currently set the error code to nil when there is no error. In 1.6, to be consistent with fetchRemote, the error code reported will be 0. See GitHub #294. Since July 2016 if you provide an invalid string like "randomstring" when a function expects a number, the string will be treated as 0 and raise a script warning. In 1.6 this will be an error. You will still be able to provide strings containing numbers (e.g. "100" and "12.34"), this change only affects invalid strings. See GitHub #1043. When providing a width and height of (0, 0) to createBrowser or guiCreateBrowser you will encounter a script error instead of a warning. The warning was introduced Feb 2019. See GitHub #1069. Some functions expect only unsigned integers (positive numbers), and since Jan 2016 providing negative numbers would be a warning. This will now be an error. See GitHub #1070. Since Aug 2015, we replaced the custom mtalocal:// URL scheme with http://mta/resourceName/blah.html. This mtalocal:// URL scheme will now be removed. See GitHub #1071. This list is inconclusive and we may introduce more changes later. What's next? Multi Theft Auto depends on community input and contributions. To keep a project like MTA going we need LOTS of people. You can help in the following areas: Designing We are looking for a web designer to help us create a new website. Testing and bug reporting Whenever you encounter a bug or recognise a need for improvement, we can't fix it until you tell us your problem! We're continually working on new features and fixes for MTA, and this always needs testing. Join our Nightly release stream (Settings -> Advanced -> Update build type) and make sure you keep in touch with on Discord and report issues on GitHub. Programming If you know C++ you may be interested in helping improve Multi Theft Auto's client. Working on open-source software may seem scary, but the best way is to try! Read GitHub's open source guide, and then find an itch to scratch, or scratch your own! Documentation Documentation is important, but also time consuming. If you enjoy writing and have some knowledge of English, or you would like to translate the English version to your native language, you’re very welcome to do so. Just head over to our wiki, create an account, and start editing! Support Do you like people? Can you give calm and thought-out responses to users needing help? Then you can spend some time providing support to those who need it. Many answers can be found on our wiki, so make sure to take some time to read it. Then, either join our chat or forums (linked below), or simply help us sort out issues and answer questions on the GitHub repository. Translation Want to translate MTA to your own language? Awesome! Visit us on Pootle. As soon as your translation is approved, it will be pushed to our repository for use in future releases. Donations Keeping the MTA downloads, master server and websites alive costs money! If you want to help us sustain our financial expenses, please donate! Thank you!

    Happy Spring Break! We have got a new release for you - Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas 1.5.4! This release includes security updates for the server that protect both you and us, so we recommend all server owners to upgrade as soon as possible - see the steps below for tips on that. Failure to do so may affect your server's visibility on the Master Server List in the ingame server browser. Aside from security fixes, there are some feature updates in this version for the client as well, so regular players are more than welcome to update. What do you need to do to upgrade your server properly Stop your server, then upgrade your server binaries like usual. You can also upgrade your server resources if you use any of the default MTA:SA ones. Start your server, and when it is running, stop your server again (This will step will ensure mtaserver.conf is upgraded) Edit your mtaserver.conf file, and find <owner_email_address> (it should be just below the <servername> parameter) and insert a valid e-mail address that we can use to contact you, should there be an issue with your server. This e-mail address IS NOT visible publicly and will only be used for means listed earlier. That is, only if those occur. Save the mtaserver.conf file, then start your server again. Release Highlights Authorized Serial Account Protection is now enabled by default. To put it simply, this feature prevents players from logging in to an account on the server if their serial differs from the serial associated with that account. Naturally, this feature is configurable so you can restrict it to specific account groups and you can authorize more than just one serial for a specific account. You can also disable this in the mtaserver.conf file if you are sure you do not need the feature. Database Credentials Protection is now enabled by default. passwordHash() & passwordVerify() can now be used to store and verify passwords securely and efficiently fetchRemote() now supports parallel downloads with the queue name parameter setWorldSpecialPropertyEnabled() now has settings for "sniper moon", "random foliage" and "extra air resistance" New scripting functions: get/setVehicleLODDistance() setElementDimension() now supports element omnipresence, which means that an element can be in all dimensions at once fixes for weapons/fists desync Corona markers should now have a correct attach offset position SQLite or MySQL no longer makes the server freeze if the connection is lost (#9520) Goggles no longer stay after player was killed (#9477) updates for CEF and other dependencies and redists fakelag command for testing sync issues fixes for some crashes and improvements for error handling for installation and startup issues removed max password length limit for server account passwords added server option to allow locally modified (gta3.img) vehicles added world special property "extraairresitance" to remove speed limiter on certain road sections (#7546) resource pack: various changes in acpanel, editor, freeroam, killmessages, playerblips, race and webbrowser ... plus more! A complete list of changes can be found here (recommended read) and here (incomplete, from r10623 upwards). List of changes to the resource pack can be found here (starting from and including Oct 29, 2016 upwards). Want to download MTA:SA 1.5.4? Click here to download the build for Win 7+. Looking for a legacy build for XP/Vista? You can download it here. Or you can click here to go to our home page. Once there, click the Download button at the top center of the page, then choose your build and you are set. Linux server packages are also available. This release is backwards compatible with the 1.5.3 (also 1.5.2, 1.5.1 and 1.5). If you use these versions, then you may as well upgrade to the newest one.

    A while ago we had published a release candidate build for the upcoming release for you folks to test. This phase went fine, so we feel that we are now ready to present you with the new stable version of the mod - Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas 1.5.3! Just like before, this is an update for our current stable version series - MTA:SA 1.5. Contrary to this definition, it is rather a huge update which contains mostly smaller changes, but makes up for it with the amount of them. A lot of effort was put by @Jusonex and @sbx320 into cleaning the code and reorganizing the build system, both of which should make it easier for us to maintain MTA:SA's code base and simplify the compilation procedure. However, during the above mentioned RC testing phase we decided to revert some of the code clean-up changes and leave them for a future release due to problems they were causing. We feel it will be better that way as some of these changes simply need more work as they affect a lot of the code base, making it harder to pinpoint other issues that might be discovered. In the meantime, @ccw and @darkdreamingdan had worked on fixing bugs reported by the community. We also had updated several dependencies (third-party components which are used in our mod), including a bunch of utility libraries (such as sqlite, zlib, libpng or libjpeg) and the CEF (Chromium Embedded Framework) components. The latter especially is an important change which we had explained further in a separate post and also summarized briefly below. This update will be slightly troublesome for some of our players who are still using Windows XP and Windows Vista (which is, to be honest, a rather small amount). Regular 1.5.3 build will not work for such users, so we had prepared a legacy build just for them. Furthermore, such users need to be prepared that at some point we might drop support for Windows XP and Windows Vista for our future releases. Please read this post to learn more about this change and its consequences. Since the build system was reorganized, a lot of smaller changes which were originally made for 1.6 were also introduced in this version (as long as they were not breaking the compatibility), making it actually one of the biggest releases we have ever made (and also sort of a bridge between 1.5 series and the then-upcoming 1.6 release). You can check the list below for some of the most interesting changes, but we really recommend checking full lists of changes to check whether the feature or function you have always wanted is already available in this release: Added support for German Steam version of GTA:SA (thanks to Lakota, Mario and @Sh4dowReturns for feedback) Improved streaming of low LOD objects and increased limits Multiple popular crashes were fixed Code cleanups and improved internal error logging MTA:SA will now try to use the native screen resolution when first launched Fixed desktop resolution when minimizing with fullscreen borderless window mode Added client resource files path info to Advanced tab in Options window Added icon for Windows server executable and digitally signed the CEFLauncher executable New scripting functions: canBrowserNavigateBack(), canBrowserNavigateForward(), navigateBrowserBack(), navigateBrowserForward() and reloadBrowserPage() (developed by mabako); createTrayNotification() and isTrayNotificationEnabled() (developed by Necktrox); also resizeBrowser(), fileGetPath(), setVehicleWindowOpen() and more... Tweaks to dbQuery()/dbExec(), fileRead(), addDebugHook() and more... Fixed setBrowserAudio() not muting the sound correctly on some websites e.g. YouTube Fixed setCameraTarget() calculation (thanks to lex128) setVehiclePlateText() now works with any kind of vehicle, including motorbikes (thanks to lopezloo) Added blend parameter for setPedAnimation() (thanks to lex128) Added support for objects and weapons in ped damage events (thanks to lopezloo) Water elements are now limited to a specific dimension Fixed sniper scope disappearing after killing a ped (thanks to lopezloo) Fixed MTA sometimes not loading custom textures Fixed MTA slowly updating position of attached elements Security and performance tweaks for CEF Fixed CEF popups (e.g. <select> boxes) not being rendered correctly Added option to block server admins who login with an unrecognized serial Added duplicate log line filter for script debugging Fixed a connecting player being able to block resources from starting Tweaked logic of client resource file validation Added server logging for redirectPlayer Tweaks for admin, missiontimer, race, runcode and webbrowser resources (thanks to Dutchman101, Einheit-101 and PhrozenByte) Added map backups for Map Editor and changed its default fps limiter setting value from 36 to 50 (thanks to AleksCore for the latter) Removed the no longer needed VS2008 redist package from the installer ...and much more! A complete list of changes can be found here (recommended read) and here (incomplete, from r7816 upwards). List of changes to the resource pack can be found here (starting from and including Feb 18, 2016 upwards). Please be advised that UltraThing and older versions of ENB series mods are blocked in MTA:SA 1.5.3 due to their incompatibility with the MTA:SA web browser components. If you want to use ENB mod in 1.5.3, please update it to a newer version if your current one does not work. If, on the other hand, you want to use UltraThing mod in 1.5.3, you will not be able to do it anymore - sorry for that just like above - please update it to a newer version (v0.29 or above). Want to download MTA:SA 1.5.3? Click here to download the build for Win 7+. Looking for a legacy build for XP/Vista? You can download it here. Or you can click here to go to our home page. Once there, click the Download button at the top center of the page, then choose your build and you are set. Linux server packages are also available. This version is backwards compatible with our older 1.5 releases, but we still encourage everyone to update their clients and servers ASAP to ensure, that they benefit from bugfixes, security updates for CEF, performance tweaks or other improvements. We would like to thank the following community members for their contributions to the MTA:SA source code, resources or feedback for this release: Aboshanab, AleksCore, braydondavis, Dutchman101, Einheit-101, Lakota, lex128, lopezloo, mabako, Mario, Necktrox, PhrozenByte, qaisjp, rafalh, @Sh4dowReturns, zneext (Have you contributed to MTA:SA 1.5.3's or 1.6's source code/resources pack but were not mentioned in the above list? PM @jhxp with a link to your contribution and you will be added) We hope that you will enjoy this release. Also, please keep in mind that if you encounter a bug or a problem which was not present in previous versions, you can report it to our bugtracker. --MTA Team

    Hi there! Time sure flies fast, doesn't it? It has been a while since the last post from us so we would like to give you an update on what has been going on recently with MTA:SA. We have got two highlights for you this time. The community Do you remember our Community website? It has served us well over the years but has also caught some rust in the process. Therefore, we would like to re-visit it and improve your experience with discovering and publishing resources. Our plan is to build a new community website from the ground up using modern technologies, and we would like to hear from you what you would like to see on the new platform. Please respond to this thread with your ideas and suggestions. Technically inclined users can take a look at the first pass of our specification document. Development progress As for the mod itself, we have received many pull requests (patch contributions) on our GitHub from open source contributors lately. One of such contributions is a brand new feature: custom IFP animations support, coming from one of our community members, Saml1er. He managed to get this to work nicely in MTA:SA, while ensuring that our coding standards are met so we could include it without too much hassle. Saml1er even made a video which showcases what this feature is all about. You can find it below: We intend this to be a part of our upcoming 1.5.6 release which we hope will come soon, but you can try it out now by using a nightly build: https://nightly.mtasa.com/ Tips for using this can be found on our wiki: https://wiki.multitheftauto.com/wiki/EngineLoadIFP That's all for now. Take care and enjoy the summer! — MTA Team

    Hey, I wonder what this button does... <presses the button> huh? delete all forum users? oh sna- Hi there, the MTA Team is happy to present you with the result of what we have been up to recently - the redesigned and refreshed MTA Forum! This is something that we have wanted to do for a long time, and for several reasons. The forum software we have used until now (phpBB) has served us well through the years, there is no doubt about that. However, as time went by, our needs were changing too. It was becoming less and less feasible for us to use and maintain the forums in their present state, so we decided it was time to try something that is more suited to our current needs. We were recently presented with an opportunity to switch the forum software on attractive terms and we took it. Lo and behold, here are the new forums! Highlights of new features that were not present on the previous forum: forum now runs on a proprietary, secure, well tested and widely used software solution - the IPS Community Suite a completely new, mobile-friendly forum theme a fully fledged rich text editor for posting or editing your content on the forums (instead of the previous plain text box with BBCode buttons) an improved user profile system for greater personalisation of your presence on our forums a new, customizable real-time notifications system also a new, simplified Private Messaging system improvements to the quotation system (quotes link to the original post, and are fully collapsible) and replying in general (the multiquote feature) an ability to 'like' and rate topics and posts, awarding reputation points to their authors topic authors can now assign tags to their topics, making it easier for users to find the content they are looking for several new enhancements and customization features to improve your browsing experience (eg. topic previews; the ability to hide forums you are not interested in) moderators now have an ability to promote your topic on the forum (similar to stickied topics, but separate to them) several new features for us administrators too, which will make forum maintenance easier and possibly allow us to implement new forum features without a hassle ... and more! List of features that were present in the previous forum but are missing or are less functional now: no topic icons Private Messaging system is less pleasant to scroll through. Getting used to it might take some time too it is no longer possible to view the source code of posts. If you really need that functionality, you can check the page's HTML source code directly, then use a third party converter to obtain the BBCode code boxes are no longer integrated with the MTA wiki URLs FAQ: Q: Are my posts still in place? What about my private messages? A: They are both fine. You can find them in the same place you left them before. Q: Will the old forum URLs still work? A bunch of places on the web link to your forum using old URLs... A: Yes, they will work. We have a on-the-fly converter in place for such URLs, so they will still link to where they should. Q: I have found an issue with the new forum. Can I report it? A: Sure. Send a PM to one of the forum administrators (darkdreamingdan, jhxp or Jusonex) and describe the problem you have found. Make sure you provide all the details or steps to reproduce your issue, where applicable. We would like to thank Audifire and the mta-sa.org team for donating the forum software license to us. And naturally, you can not forget about darkdreamingdan and Jusonex, our team members who had both put a tremendous amount of effort in preparing and performing the forum maintenance and migration. Awesome job, guys. Did you like the change? Please let us know in the comments! See you next time. --MTA Team

    Hello. 2019 is nearing to an end, so here is our traditional "A year in Recap" post for you. Below you can find the summary of what has happened this year - along with the current status of an entry (where applicable) and other things that might be interesting to you. 📰 2019 in Recap Late January, we have refreshed our Forum Rules - we gave them a new look and rephrased a bunch of paragraphs to make them more clear and easier to follow. In May, we have decided to drop support for Windows XP and Vista in our future releases. These operating systems are no longer supported by Microsoft and only a handful of our players still use them. We have advised our players to upgrade their PCs to newer Windows versions. While Windows 7 support will be soon ended by Microsoft as well, we still intend to support it in MTA:SA for a while. In July, we have opened an User Guides section on our forums, which aims to provide our users with quality guides and tutorials for various MTA-related topics. We are still looking into improving this concept. On 31st of August, we have released Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas 1.5.7. This release was focused on performance improvements, minor scripting additions and bugfixes. It is still the current release and, as mentioned above, is the last main release for Windows XP and Vista. On the same day, we have asked you guys to help us re-design our community website. The work on the new community is currently on hold however. Later in September, Rockstar Games has released GTA: San Andreas for free on their launcher app (for a limited time). We have added support for it in MTA:SA shortly after. 26th of October marked the 15th anniversary of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas original release on PS2. While it was not the game we started with, it was the game that allowed us to make MTA the successful mod it is today. 📺 A bunch of interesting MTA:SA-related YouTube videos from this year MTA SA: SAPDFR Online Gameplay 171 (Flaming in the Cold) - server SAPDFR.org, video by Armor23OnPatrol [DM] NeiT ft. Gteatero ft. nX_ - Demons Skills 3 - video by GercszTV FBX replace per element feature - concept and video by CrosRoad95 [MTA SA] Let's play S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - server ex-zone.ru, video by TEDERIs MTA:SA - Legend Mercy Tactics - video by TheGam3r23 MTA:SA Hydra Stunts 2019 [SW]Supa Innovation - video by SupaHotFire 📈 Current player counts and version fragmentation statistics Type Amount of players Date / Time Recent peak number of concurrent unique players 31808 players 2019.12.15 (at 17.30 GMT) Highest recorded number of concurrent unique players 34653 players 2018.02.03 (at 17.30 GMT) Recent number of daily unique players 132450 players 2019.12.21 (Saturday) Highest recorded number of daily unique players 185818 players 2018.02.03 (Saturday) Recent number of monthly unique players 531728 players November, 2019 Highest recorded number of monthly unique players 805903 players January, 2018 Player counts were lower than the ones from last year, but they're still large. Again, it's great to see that so many players are still interested in GTA:SA even though it's over 15 years old now!

    Hi guys @fastman92 has recently engaged with us in order to get his limit adjuster implemented into MTA. Obviously, there are a number of complexities involved in implementing this, and we need to make some important design decisions to achieve this. So, why do you want to use a Limit Adjuster tool? Some things I'm hoping to learn: Are you trying to play MTA with a modified version of GTASA? Do you want the limit adjuster to play mods like GTA:Underground? Are you trying to use Limit Adjusters with MTA's own Lua engine* functions? (e.g. engineLoadDFF) Anything else? Any feedback would be incredibly beneficial to the team going forward. Cheers Dan

    Summer is over, but fear not, we have got a new release for you - Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas 1.5.5! This release is focused on bugfixes (most notably, some popular crashes were fixed with help from @Dutchman101 - eg. this one, code cleanups and under-the-hood improvements for developers (migration to a Docker-based environment and support for VS2017 and GCC-6). It may look like it is not much of an update, but the amount of such smaller changes should be a good incentive to update. In other news, we have enabled some additional forum account security features for your convenience - namely a possibility to set a security question(s) for the account and support for Authy and Google Authenticator two-factor authentication. You can enable them in your Account Security settings. Release Highlights updated CEF elements and fixed red/blue color swap issue with Intel VGAs added 'localhost' to the hardcoded CEF whitelist modified launch patcher to work with more exe variants added black outline option for chat text fixed #4166 ("Engine Sounds of other Helicopters and planes missing unless you get in a Helicopter or plane.") fixed #9681 ("Unable to hear proper engine sounds when sitting in car as passenger") fixed #3944 ("Radio titles do not always show.") fixed #8590 ("createEffect with some effects places it's sfx sounds to position 0,0,0") added guiGetCursorType(), isResourceArchived(), getDevelopmentMode(), setDevelopmentMode() (used to be client-only, now it's also server-side), debugSleep(), setVehicleModelExhaustFumesPosition(), getVehicleModelExhaustFumesPosition() improved client connections through firewalls fixed FOV setting not updating censored onClientConsole for login command potentially fixed crouchbug resource pack: various changes in admin, editor, freeroam, headshot, ipb, joinquit, killmessages, play, and realdriveby ... plus more! A complete list of changes can be found here (recommended read) and here (incomplete, from r11302 upwards). List of changes to the resource pack can be found here (starting from and including Apr 22, 2016 upwards). Want to download MTA:SA 1.5.5? Click here to download the build for Win 7+. Looking for a legacy build for XP/Vista? You can download it here. Or you can click here to go to our home page. Once there, click the Download button at the top center of the page, then choose your build and you are set. Linux server packages are also available. This release is backwards compatible with other 1.5-based builds (1.5.4, 1.5.3, 1.5.2, 1.5.1 and 1.5). However if you still use these versions, why not upgrade to the newest one? It works just as good, or even better.

    Hi there. The Winter Holidays are here, so as usual we have got a new recap and status update post for you. Here is the summary of what has happened this year. 📰 2018 in Recap We made efforts towards the new release through the first half of the year, so there was not much to talk about. There was an incompatibility issue with the 360 Total Security software which we advised you about and later in the year, there was a similar issue with McAfee. Late July, we have asked you about your thoughts about refreshing the community.mtasa.com portal. We have received some interesting feedback from you and we are still thinking about ways of implementing it, while considering our current resources. Also in July, we have migrated our bug tracking services to GitHub Issues, making it easier to track specific issues and link them to GitHub commits and pull requests. This has also allowed us to clean up our bug tracker - the old system had nearly 8000 tracked issues, some of which were 13 years old or so. On 7th of September, we have released Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas 1.5.6. This release added support for custom IFP animations among other things, like fixing the input and FPS lag reported by some of our users. Then a few days later, we have advised you to upgrade your MTA:SA servers to the latest version due to a server crash exploit that was discovered. There were some additional issues with this hotfix that were spotted later, but they have been all fixed within few days. If you have not yet upgraded your servers though, we still urge you to do so. 📺 A bunch of interesting MTA:SA-related YouTube videos from this year nX_ Vol.18 - CodeNX™ - 첫 장 - video by ElCrowMvs / map by nX [GTA:DM] Wonder - Interstellar - by Wonder MTA [MTA] Vice City - Map Preview #1 (JStreamer v3) - by Liberty City Roleplay Multi Theft Auto - Tactics - by LoG4nTG Multi Theft Auto - MTA CIT / GTA SA - San Andreas Police Department's 7th Anniversary (Dance Show) - video by PeteyFTW / server: CIT Multi Theft Auto San Andreas Fail + Funny moments #1 - by Mr. Green Gaming Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas - MTA DD - Map: Orgazm Cross - video by Game Master / map by Orgazm MTA:SA Fast And Furious Paradise Trailer ! - by SDRIFTER Abdlmounaim 📈 Current player counts and version fragmentation statistics Type Amount of players Date / Time Recent peak number of concurrent unique players 30625 players 2018.12.16 (at 16.30 GMT) Highest recorded number of concurrent unique players 34653 players 2018.02.03 (at 17.30 GMT) Recent number of daily unique players 150390 players 2018.12.01 (Saturday) Highest recorded number of daily unique players 185818 players 2018.02.03 (Saturday) Recent number of monthly unique players 605834 players November, 2018 Highest recorded number of monthly unique players 805903 players January, 2018 Player counts were just slightly lower than last year, but we have also had some nice peak values at the beginning of the year. Good to see that there is still an interest in old but great games. MTA:SA Version or series Percentage of players using that version or series as of 24th of December, 2018 1.6.0 (alpha) 0.05% 1.5.6 97.20% 1.5.5 2.00% 1.5.4 (and older) 0.40% 1.4.x 0.20% 1.3.x 0.15% Similar to last year, two of our most recent releases are used by over 99% of our player base. It means that there is little fragmentation between our releases and that players in general upgrade to the newest release once it is available. Also, there seems to be some interest in the newest alpha version as well - that is nice too. 📟 Status updates Community-wise, our Discord has expanded this year - currently we have got 10 language-specific sections available for you there, as well as the active as usual English ones. We have also opened a new forum section recently to keep appeals for global game bans in one place. Over the next few weeks we intend to refresh our forum rules to better suit the current forum needs. As for mod's development, we will continue working on the next release. We are thinking of integrating a new version of the client installer to reduce amount of issues encountered when installing MTA:SA (as well as to make it easier to investigate the remaining ones). We will also consider adding new features provided by our community members, such as editing collisions and adjusting surface properties by CrosRoad95. That's it for now. 🎄❄Happy Holidays and all the best to you in 2019! 🎉✨ -- MTA Team

    Hi there. Oh, what is that? The holidays are here again? Yep, it looks like they are, so that means the usual stuff. We are going to give you guys & gals a heads up on what has been happening in MTA's world this whole year. And if you are one of those well informed types who does not need a recap, you still might want to give this post a read, as there will be more than that later on! 2016 in Recap Near the end of January, we released a bugfix release for MTA:SA 1.5.x - Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas 1.5.2. Among a few other things, that version had and improved the server app compatibility for Linux server hosters and fixed some desync issues. In July, we started offering a new way of promotion for server owners who wanted to gain more players quickly. Namely, one of the top positions in the ingame server browser for a week in an exchange for a small fee. We felt it was a good way to not only ensure that our Project's financial needs are balanced, but also to allow some smaller but ambitious servers to try and get the player base they were always seeking for. In August and September, we made significant changes to our forums, including a switch to a new forum software. There were a bunch of issues found afterwards (such as keeping the users login states), but we managed to fix most of them. Following that, we were featured in an article on the Rock Paper Shotgun, which was pondering the popularity of multiplayer mods for GTASA, even long after its original release. You can find the full article on the RPS website. And finally, on 20th of October, Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas 1.5.3 was released. This was a large release that could as well have been labelled as a next major release, but was not as it was still compatible with the 1.5 series. A bunch of interesting MTA:SA-related YouTube videos from this year Current player counts and version fragmentation statistics Type Amount of players Date / Time Recent peak number of concurrent unique players 27111 players 2016.12.23 (at 17.30 GMT) Highest recorded number of concurrent unique players 27111 players 2016.12.23 (at 17.30 GMT) Recent number of daily unique players 124981 players 2016.12.23 (Friday) Highest recorded number of daily unique players 142785 players 2016.09.04 (Sunday) Recent number of monthly unique players 554757 players November, 2016 Highest recorded number of monthly unique players 626167 players August, 2016 Yes, to our surprise, there was a new concurrent unique player count record set literally on the day we were gathering these stats for you. MTA:SA Version or series Percentage of players using that version or series as of 23rd of December, 2016 1.5.3 95.20% 1.5.2 1.5.1 1.5 3.60% 0.09% 0.09% 1.4.x 0.67% 1.3.x 0.28% 1.0.x + 1.1.x + 1.2.x 0.07% It looks like more people decided to use newer versions of the mod than the last year. *** As for the future, we have been working on the next release, which will contain mostly bugfixes and compatibility tweaks. However, we did some work on new features as well, such as Custom Train Tracks, which we hope to be finished soon. We also want to look into improving streaming, raising the limits and making it possible to add new IDs for things, but this will be tricky. Nonetheless, it would be great to see those features working in MTA:SA one day as, for example, they would allow server owners to use bigger and better custom maps with new vehicles working correctly for all players. That's it for now. Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for 2017 from the MTA Team!

    Hi there! Our next release is nearly done. However, to ensure that it meets our high quality standards, we would like to ask you guys to thoroughly test it before we release it. This release brings an important change to our release distribution system. Starting today, there will be two builds available for you to download: normal build - only works on Windows 7 and above legacy build - only works on Windows XP and Windows Vista A normal build is basically what we offered with our previous releases, with an exception that it now requires Windows 7 or above to run. The new thing is an legacy build, which only works on Windows XP and Windows Vista. This build uses the last CEF components version that works on XP/Vista, which is now outdated and insecure. To ensure that we will not leave some of our players in the dark, while keeping the rest of them secure, we decided to split the release into two builds. One which uses older CEF components and works on XP/Vista (legacy build), and the other one which has up-to-date CEF but only works on Windows 7 and above (normal build). We have elaborated more on this in a separate post which you can find here. MTA:SA 1.5.3 has a lot of other smaller bug fixes, tweaks and new features included and is a result of another change to our build system, which simplified the development and building process to us. This has also allowed us to back-port many of the smaller changes originally planned for the 1.6 release to 1.5.3. These changes should be compatible with the 1.5 series, but they still need to be tested to ensure that this is indeed the case. And this is where you guys come in. To help us testing the version, simply download the Release Candidate from links below, install it and play as you normally would. If you play on XP or Vista, download the legacy build, otherwise grab the normal one. This version is meant to be fully compatible with MTA:SA 1.5.2 or below, so just join your favourite server and give it a go. If you encounter a problem or spot a bug, you can report them to our bugtracker. Please use the search feature first to see if your problem was not already reported though... Updated Windows/Linux server packages are also available, and similarly, they are also compatible with 1.5.2 clients, so please test whether your servers work fine on 1.5.3 too. Click here to download MTA:SA 1.5.3 RC Normal Build (for Windows 7 and above) Click here to download MTA:SA 1.5.3 RC Legacy Build (Windows XP and Vista only) MTA:SA 1.5.3 RC Linux Server download page You can find the current list of changes for this version here. A summary of changes and credits list will be provided with the final release announcement post. Thank you for helping us make MTA great again awesome. --MTA Team

    A simple script of dressable characters and deformable faces. You can move every vertex of the head with a simple displacement shader. The script is in test state right now, I'll create a new editor later. Hope you like it.

    Hello there! You found Dystopia: The Incident, an original sandbox post-apocalyptic RPG. Keep reading below and you’ll find out more... Test server: mtasa:// Discord: https://discord.gg/Zs5bWSX Current version: alpha 0.75, check out details here DOWNLOAD (0.75 alpha) Key concepts Food and water are scarce and you need to be on the move to stay alive. Inventory size is limited, forcing you to prioritize. Vehicles require constant maintenance. Faction camps, bases, shanty towns and other encounter zones all over San Andreas. Exploration is rewarded. World is densely populated with NPCs and who you choose to kill matters. Environment is harsh and punishes the weak and the dumb. Moral decisions to be made. End goal. Roleplay friendly. Designed to be also enjoyable as a single-player experience. Setting 2000: A series of catastrophic earthquakes smashed the cities and countryside of San Andreas. In the aftermath, the whole state found itself separated from mainland. Fear and selfishness roamed free, pushing society into chaos. In the heart of San Fierro, one of the largest cities of San Andreas, government-sponsored Zombotech Corporation was researching biological weapons in its underground facility. The labs were heavily damaged by the cataclysm and a deadly infectious agent escaped in the streets. While emergency services struggled to contain the disaster and minimize collateral damage, death was spreading unnoticed. 2001: The Establishment evacuated survivors of the outbreak in the barricaded city of Las Venturas but infection spread inside the fence. They nuked the city and placed San Andreas under strict military quarantine. Nobody gets in, nobody gets out. They dubbed the disaster ‘The Incident’ to minimize its amplitude, media soon went silent and survivors were forgotten. 2007: 6 years passed and things have not become better. Regular people picked things up from where the government left them and started to organize. This is a tough new world, populated with the full spectrum of humanity: resilient survivors, vicious bandits, cannibalistic raiders, oppressive military forces and the rest of the loons. No line between good and bad was ever so ill-defined. San Andreas is ruled with an iron hand by Governor Skinner, who took office only six days after the Incident. His armed forces fight to control the territory, herding men into the new Refugee Camp. Resources are scarce and many dropped the last remnants of morality when they faced starvation. Violent clans and factions fight over the remains, establishing turfs or just trying to stay alive. Militias fight for supremacy, idealists work to maintain civilization and everybody else just struggles to survive another day in an increasingly suffocating world. As it became evident that the government has no rescue plan for them, despair started to crumble the minds of the few sane left. All attempts to flee San Andreas are met with airstrikes. But there must be ways to escape this place... What you can experience right now Explore a detailed post-apocalyptic map with many encounter zones. Plenty of NPCs, both friendlies and baddies. Dynamic faction and spawn system. More than 40 missions already in the game. Detailed inventory with more than 100 items to be found and used. Basic needs, stamina, infection, various other modifiers like pain, bleeding, exhaustion or inebriation. Innovative looting mechanic. Four zombie types, with different behavior. Scavenge the world for materials to build settlements or to use simple crafting and cooking. Upgrade and drive rugged vehicles across the wasteland and engage in vehicular combat. Trade, recruit and discover parts of the story by chatting with NPCs. Experience dark humor and some strong themes (16+). Simple interface, consistent graphic style. What still needs to be done The current gamemode version is alpha 0.75. Required for beta: skills and abilities implementation, npc traffic, karma system and map completion (now >90%). Once the project hits beta and the core is completed we’ll start focusing exclusively on the missions and story. Seeking friends for the end of the world Want to jump onboard and take part in the development? Great, join our Discord server using the link on top (the recommended approach) or PM me here. We're always looking for like-minded developers. Wanted: scripters, mappers, storytellers, 3D artists and testers. However, keep in mind that we're not looking to monetize this project in any way. We’ve used the work of many MTA community members and the gamemode will be shared alike with the community when completed. You will gain full credit for your work but no other type of compensation. Share your thoughts We do love suggestions and implement all good fitting ones, so don’t be shy and tell us what you think about this project, using the channels highlighted above. The answer is guaranteed and we'll also give full credit for any original ideas. Media 100+ development screenshots here (I suppose this is what you were looking for from the beginning, instead of reading a wall of text) Thanks for reading! Watch this space for fresh information and media.

    مرحبا لقد قمت بإطلاق الاصدار الجديد من لوحة الادمنية العربية بعد ان لاحظت ان معظم الاعضاء يقومون بإستخدام لوحات الادمنية العربية القديمة التي مر عليها الدهر من دون اي تحديثات او حماية وكما انها غير مؤمنه كـ اي لوحة ادمنية حديثة الإنشاء,( وبالمناسبة انني هولندي ولا اتحدث اللغة العربية ) وكما انني بذلت الكثير من جهدي حتي اقوم بنقل الترجمة العربية من اللوحات العربية القديمة الي هذه اللوحة حديثة الصنع وكل ما اريده هو ان اقوم بإفادة اصحاب السيرفرات الذين يستخدمون لوحة الادمنية العربية القديمة وكما انه يمكنك ان تري اخر تحديثات لوحة الادمنية من خلال : https://github.com/multitheftauto/mtasa-resources/commits/master/[admin]/admin وإذا كان لديك صاحب سيرفر يستخدم لوحة الادمنية العربية القديمة رجاء اخبره بهذا الموضوع لكي يقوم بتحميل النسخة الحديثة من اللوحة العربية لتحميل اللوحة العربية DOWNLOAD:https://community.mtasa.com/?p=resources&s=details&id=14837 واذا كان هناك خطأ في ترجمة اللوحة رجاء اخبرني " لقد تمت ترجمة الموضوع من قبل نصور " ENG: I'm here releasing a new Arabic-translated admin panel from today's version (september 2017) after I noticed all community circulating AR panels were outdated as hell. As they pose serious security risks, eventhough I'm not Arabic, I felt it of such importance that I've spent a long time transferring translations from older circulating panels to this most up-to-date Admin panel. I'm helping a huge amount of server owners with this, because most will just use a Community version that is outdated because of the great time to invest in translating yourself. Ofcourse, you'll also benefit from new features and updates made to Admin recently, (look here: https://github.com/multitheftauto/mtasa-resources/commits/master/[admin]) both for this reason and security I advise you inform all server owners you know about this release and suggest they update if they're using Arab panels. If you spot any translation issues, please leave a reply. Main view example; (updated 24/09/2018)

    For long time i considered to do something with physics in mta. For now doing even simplest things such falling box, tree on flat area looks cartoonish. In my history of i saw few attempts of doing simple physics, mostly it was in closed area without bigger interactions with poor performance due you just can't calculate collision in other way than processLineOfSight, isLineOfSightClear or read directly .col file as Tederis did. I started with something to render things, thats how FBX https://github.com/multitheftauto/mtasa-blue/pull/1093 to bypass default rendering to handle future i'll introduce in future. That's how bullet physics project born, first idea how to use react physics, works simillar but is lighter and general smaller project but 0x416c69 suggested to use bullet. I'll use this topic also to prepare long list of features it contains for future copy paste to PR and wiki page The main assumption is to allow for create multiple world with completly independed simulations, get and set detailed information about current step of simulation, fully control how everything is simulated, quality of collision tests, speed and a lot more. i'm trying keep amount of functions low, because if that most stuff is packed into one function. Syntax and name of some function might change in future or along suggestions. Not all properties supports every physics element, some are only get, other set only, however most of them are set/get Current stage: I already implemented function such a: physics physicsCreateWorld() - responsible for creating new world for simulations, return element which will use later. physics-rigidbody physicsCreateRigidBody( shape-type, mixed arguments ) - creates rigid body which is use to simulation bahaviour of non-static shapes, collisions ( currently only few models in mta can do this in simple way ). physics-rigidbody physicsCreateRigidBodyFromModel( model ) - used to create rigid body directly from collision data taken from gta model. physics-static-collision physicsCreateStaticCollision( shape-type, mixed arguments ) - creates static collision which will not move at all ( it is still possible to move it by Lua script ) physics-shape physicsAddShape( shape-type, mixed arguments ) - if you create compound shape, this function let you add more shapes into static collision or rigid body bool physicsSetProperties( any physics element, physics-property, mixed arguments ) - main function to control physics, rigid bodies, static collisions, shapes. Works in simillar way as handling functions. mixed physicsGetProperties( any physics element, physics-property ) - same as above, but getting properties bool physicsDrawDebug( physics ) - use to visualization of world, must be used in render function bool physicsSetDebugMode( physics-debug-mode, enabled ) - use to turn off/on debugging features bool physicsBuildCollisionFromGTA( physics ) - used to create static collisions in specified world from original collisions, doesn't create whole world instantly, require to move player around world to load collision data. physics-constraint physicsCreateConstraint( physics, physics-rigid-body, physics-rigid-body, constraint-type, mixed arguments ) - use to connecting two or more rigid bodies into one entity bool physicsApplyForce( physics-rigid-body, vector from, vector to ) - pushing rigid body in particular point you choosed. bool physicsApplyCentralForce( physics-rigid-body, vector direction ) - apply force from central position of rigid, it's more like "accelereate", should be used more than once at the some period of time bool physicsApplyCentralImpulse( physics-rigid-body, vector direction ) - setting position from center of rigid bool physicsApplyDamping( physics-rigid-body, float force ) - i'm not sure, but it should slow down velocity and rotation of model by specified amount of units physicsApplyImpulse( physics-rigid-body, vector direction ) - i'm not sure how it works physicsApplyTorque( physics-rigid-body, vector rotation ) - same as physicsApplyCentralForce but for rotation physicsApplyTorqueImpulse( physics-rigid-body, vector rotation ) - setting rotation speed physics-properties: "mass", "position" ,"rotation", "sleepingthresholds", "restitution", "scale" "debugcolor", "filtermask", "filtergroup", "stiffness" `sleepingthresholds` means how slow rigid must move/rotate to sleep, it makes stops moving at all but still can be pushed by other rigids `restitution` bounciness, between 0-1 but accept any value above `stiffness` - for fixed constraint `filtermask` i still figuring out how it work, but should let you use 32 bit mask to set which rigid with which should collide Bullet documentation: https://github.com/bulletphysics/bullet3/blob/master/docs/Bullet_User_Manual.pdf page 13 contains useful information when which shape should be used physics-constraints: "pointtopoint", "hidge", "fixed", "slider" Physics-shapes: "box", "sphere", "capsule", "cone", "cylinder", "heightfieldterrain", "compound", "trianglemesh", "convexhull" `compound` is used for constructing rigid made of various shapes Plans for future: "heightfieldterrain" shape type accept black-white texture for faster creation Support for cloths, soft bodies Media: Videos are availiable at my youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC95MpsQ1JppDNpMvl_7c1rg screenshots and gifs of current progress: Documentation i use: https://pybullet.org/Bullet/BulletFull I'm waiting for your suggestions Topic not finished

    Introduction Modding is a term used when modifying components, files and what not, in this particular case modifying game installation files in order to achieve unique results not seen in the vanilla game. GTA:SA is 3D era, where modding the game requires special 3D packages. Older games such as GTA:II uses a 2D engine, which means that modding the game was commonly done with image editing applications. We will cover some aspects of modding game textures and models. This guide intends on introducing those inexperienced with modding and 3D as a whole, on how to obtain 3D software and their recommended tools. It also introduces ways to import and export models, basic workflows for 3ds Max, texturing and creating models. TOC 3D packages, helpful tools and how to obtain them Extracting game assets How each type of game model works Limitations - MTA vs GTA Working with 3ds Max Texturing a game-ready cube 3D packages, helpful tools and how to obtain them There are various applications being used for modding. Although some has more tools available, there really isn't one that tops the others. In this section there'll be lists of a few 3D packages and tools used for modding. 3ds Max, arguably the most used program with the greatest amount of third-party plugins and scripts for various games. For GTA:SA, this program is favored by many modders due to it having 3rd party scripts for dealing with animations, collisions, lighting, modeling etcetera. There isn't much that 3ds Max can't, that other programs can, when it comes to GTA:SA modding. Although this can be expensive to run on a longer term, there are education licenses available which last for 3 years. These do not allow commercial use, and is marked purely as "educational use only". View more. Kam's (vanilla) max scripts, the first official script package for modding GTA:SA with 3ds Max. After the release of his scripts, a lot of others has developed scripts of their own, some of which are more optimized and less prone to issues. Even despite Kam's scripts having overseen issues, it is still to this day widely used for tasks such as, but not limited to; IPL map generation and import, collisions, animations, characters, vehicles, environment modeling. View more. Kam's (2018) max scripts, a modified version of Kam's vanilla scripts for 3ds Max. Notable features that were added are; DK22pac's Normal map plugin support, reflection map support for environment models, 2dfx panel for lights such as aircraft lights or street lamps. View more. The Hero's RW importer/exporter, a modern plugin that works extremely well with vehicles and environment models. Due to its simplified layout it is very easy to get used to. It's far recommended to use for vehicle model import/export due to its quality handling and materials, which are based on RW formats (renderware, the engine GTA:SA runs off). With the plugin using different model material formats from Kam's, it comes with a maxscript to convert scene materials from GTA_MTL to RW_MTL and vice versa, if needed by the modeler. View more. Deniska's max scripts, a pack for various types of GTA:SA modding, some features are obsolete for MTA users due to IPL and IDE modification required. Although, the pack does come with a few tools that may be useful to MTA modders, such as prelight tools to set the vertex colors and illumination to fixed values. View more. DexX's 2dfx export script, a standalone 3ds Max script that exports Omni and Dummy informations to .sae file formats, to then be added to the .dff using RW analyzer. With this script it's possible to integrate lights and particles into custom models, e.g flashing aircraft lights, street lights, fire and smoke, etcetera. With the release of Kam's 2018 scripts, this script is used less as using Kam's may be less work for some cases. View more. Blender 3D, a freeware (yes, completely free, no paid watermarks or any limitations), not as favored by modders throughout the years until recently, where a developer has released his script 'DragonFF' on GTAforums. Although it is WIP, modders has already binned 3ds Max and moved permanently to Blender. Although Blender is free, it actually combines several programs into one, allowing a Blender user to sculpt, paint, do lighting, professional rendering and modeling in one. A recent update in 2019 changes the RMB selection to LMB and UI among other things, making for a potential alternative to 3ds Max. View more (Blender). View more (Blender GTA script) Zmodeler, not as commonly used as the aforementioned programs, although it is being used very frequently by modders in various games, most notably for GTA:games. It does not have support for skinned characters, although it is being commonly used for vehicles, and sometimes environment modeling as well. This is a fairly inexpensive solution, but lacks tools for more broad modding. View more. Sketchup, a 3D application that focuses on architecture. For modding, it is a rather uncommon, though has a free and paid version and can be used for seemingly OK modeling. It does not have access to any 3rd party scripts for GTA:SA, hence its only use is modeling and then exporting model files to then import into 3ds Max or Blender. View more. Photoshop, mainly used for graphic design, but can also produce 3D models, video, GIF and textures for assets. Photoshop is the most favored by modders in regards to working with textures e.g paintjobs and retexturing. Although there are alternative image editors in the market, Photoshop definitely hits the top in terms of usable scripts (user-customized scripts as well) and ease of workflow. View more. DFF Viewer, a 3D graphics engine that is used for visualising GTA:SA models and supports .DFF and .TGA formats. Only single dff's can be loaded at a time. Though this is rarely used by those who has access to 3ds Max and Blender, it is commonly used for troubleshooting/testing work that involves retexturing a model e.g changing the clothing textures of a character. This program is entirely free and available from various GTA modding sites. View more. TXD Workshop, a texture dictionary editor that has been around for years, only since recent years to be succeeded by Magic TXD. Though TXD Workshop may not be the best for setting up TXD files, it has a built-in IMG archive editor, allowing one to browse all of the contents of gta3.img. View more. MagicTXD, a new texture dictionary editor with features for mass exporting .TXD contents from folders into image subfolders, texture compression, mipmaps, resizing textures etcetera. This is broadly used for .txd files and almost took over TXD workshop when it comes to working with texture dictionaries. View more. RW Analyze, a multi-use program with notable features being; ability to lock/unlock game files, add data to game models e.g 2dfx and vertex colors information extracted from other DFF files. View more. Extracting game assets In order to start modding GTA, access to the files is required. The files in question are commonly found in parent files that require some sort of program to open. In this case, TXD Workshop or any IMG editor and optionally Magic TXD for later on will work just fine. The below steps shows one way to extract all models and their texture dictionaries. For IMG editors (e.g Alci's IMG Editor): Open the editor. Under File, select Open. Find gta3.IMG stored in GTA SA directory\models. Highlight the first file in the list, then scroll down to the very bottom and SHIFT+LMB click the file on the bottom. This highlights every file in GTA3.IMG. Right click the list of files and select Export. On the popup window, find and select, or create a new folder on desktop called GTA SA ASSETS. Click enter to proceed. ((For cases where specific files are wanted, use the search field to find the necessary files and export them individually)) For TXD Workshop users: Open TXD Workshop. In the toolbar it says Open IMG. Click this, then find and select gta3.IMG stored in GTA SA directory\models. Highlight the first file in the list, then scroll down to the very bottom and SHIFT+LMB click the file on the bottom. This highlights every file in GTA3.IMG. Right click the list of files, select Extract. On the window, find and select, or create a new folder on desktop called GTA SA ASSETS. Click enter to proceed. ((For cases where specific files are wanted, use the search field to find the necessary files)) Now the folder GTA SA ASSETS contains nearly every .dff, .col, .txd and so on used by the game. Assuming one would like having all of the textures in PNG, DDS, TGA or any other common image format, they may follow the below steps using Magic TXD. Inside GTA SA ASSETS create a new folder named IMAGES. Open any .txd file found in GTA SA ASSETS using Magic TXD. Navigate to the toolbar. On Tools, click Mass export. Export settings are as following. Game root = root folder containing TXD's Output root = folder where images goes Image format = self explanatory With texture names only = exports images directly to folder and duplicate named ones gets replaced by one another Pre-pended with TXD name = exports images with TXD prefix In separate folders = makes new folder(s) for every TXD's contents Hit export. This process may take some time. Note that this process is the same for other .IMG archives such as player.img. There are also .txd and .dff files elsewhere, such as \models\generic\generic.txd, which is the vehicle shared texture dictionary file. How each type of game model works Models used on GTA SA uses different rendering techniques and data hierarchy than others. This section will introduce the features that some models has that others don't. Vehicles: Vehicle model components utilises hierarchies, where each component is linked to a dummy (helper) and each dummy is linked to parent dummies e.g chassis_dummy, for them to be registered in the hierarchy. In order for vehicles to not look flat or cartoon, a few steps are made in the model; Diffuse material is given a grunge texture or AO map, this helps telling the depth of the vehicle as well as giving it a feel of realism, so it isn't just clean. A specular lighting image is applied to the vehicle surface material, giving it a fake shine when looking from certain angles. If the vehicle has hard edges (smoothing), this image can increase the visibility of the normals, retaining its original look rather than being flat without visible difference in geometry. An environment (ENV) map is applied to the vehicle surface material, producing a fake reflection that is animated horizontally as the vehicle travels. Vehicles also has a lot of hardcoded features such as headlights, brake lights, emissive lights, taxi/aircraft lights, rotatable components and dynamic collisions for special vehicles like Forklift. Vehicles are also the only dff models that uses baked collisions, which means they are stored in the .dff itself. Below is a detailed hierarchy used for cars, and special components used by a number of vehicles (click the spoiler). Skin characters: Ped skin characters uses bones (dummy objects) that are connected to each other and linked to the character model. These bones are not visible in-game. In order for the bones to know what part of the 3D model they're responsible for, the skin needs to be rigged. Character rigging for GTA:SA is done by applying weigh on vertices. Using heatmap display, colors go through blue-red, low-high respectively. Values go from 0 to 100. If the value is 0, it means that the vertex is not used for any bone. This can cause issues. If the value is < 100, it means that the vertex is used for multiple bones. This results in smooth animations ingame, as the 3D model transitions smoothly through each bone. If the value is 100, it means that the vertex is only responsible for one bone. Skin rigging is generally something that is being avoided by modelers and makes Skin modeling the most difficult on GTA. Bones are as shown: CJ character: Carl Johnson's 3D model is split into several pieces in order to be compatible with the clothing script used to let the player customize CJ. These models uses a function known as multiclump to support 3 meshes per dff; normal, ripped and fat. This is for CJ's health stats to physically show in-game. Other than multiclump and additional bones, modding CJ skin is essentially the same as any other ped skin. Map environment: World objects .dff contains only single models, though they do support omni and dummy objects for 2d effects. These types of models uses Vertex Colors/Face Colors. This requires the modeler to paint colors onto the model which is then stored in the vertex colors channel (daytime) and vertex illumination channel (nighttime). Although uncommonly used by R*, these models do support reflection maps like vehicles use. Goldfish's modified version of Kam's scripts is excellent for exporting with reflection maps. GTA SA utilises multiple collision archives (.col) for every IPL district, being responsible for all of the world objects' collisions. However, on MTA, collision archives are not supported, so custom collision files are single models per .col. Not every object uses collisions though, some merely has their bounding space. These objects can not be selected with MTA map editor, thus requires additional scripting or modding. Limitations - MTA vs GTA Speaking of native support, MTA currently is behind in several places. Notable features that aren't available on MTA, but on GTA are as following. Item Placement (IPL) - another type of mapping file, but contains a lot more functions such as zones for real-time reflections as seen in interiors. Item definition (IDE) - a file used to but not exclusively, define settings for models, enabling alpha flags, disabling backface cull, enable breakable effect and much more. Limit adjuster - a rework of the game that allows for adding more ID's and bypass common limits. This however is being developed by one of MTA's contributors. There are various limitations such as polys per model, max dimensions for models and collisions, (very) strict size limits for collisions and CPU usage that can easily cause issues for modders. Not to mention the majority of the game data files which most MTA servers likes to force original, else the player won't be able to connect. These limits all has potential solutions being developed as with the limit adjuster. Working with 3ds Max As described above, 3ds Max is without a doubt the most common program for GTA modding. It's also used by professionals within architecture and visualisation and film industry. What's amazing about this program is that whatever is created in 3ds Max can ultimately be added to the game. A modeler made a square - it can get added right away, no adjustments required. That's the charm of 3ds Max. There's no need for additional tools to process the model for it to be compatible with GTA. It is also the primary program that Rockstar's developers used for creating the environment in GTA:SA. At a first glance, the program may seem rather intimidating. The main functions of the program that a beginner should be aware of are listed below. Shows the default home screen with 4 viewports. Left, Top, Front and Perspective. The 3 side ones are Orthographic viewports while Perspective is in regular mode. It is also the most common one to use. Highlighting a viewport and pressing (left)ALT W will full screen the viewport. In order to rotate camera view, the user must click and drag the square in the upper right corner. Its face also tells which side the camera is viewing e.g Top. If one wishes to see viewport statistics such as polygons per model, vertex amount etc., clicking: [ + ] icon on the upper left side > Configure Viewport > Statistics > Total + Selection > Apply > Clicking 7 on keyboard shows the statistics. This feature is extremely useful for modelers who are limited in polygons per model, or simply wants to see how many polys a car is. Common keyboard shortcuts F1: Opens Autodesk help section in new browser tab F2: Displays blue overlay on models F3: Displays models in wireframe F4: Displays edges on models F10: Opens render setup 9: Shows viewport statistics Q: Select objects W: Select and move E: Rotate R: Select and (mode) scale U: Orthographic viewport mode P: Perspective viewport mode A: Toggle angle snap S: Enable snap D: Disable viewport G: Enable/disable grid J: Display bounding edges LALT X: Xray mode for model Ctrl Z: Undo action Ctrl Y: Redo action In a heavy program like 3ds Max, being able to change preferences to one's likings is important. Do so by going to Customize > Preferences. Performance, file settings and such can all be configured in there. For GTA:SA modding, knowing how to subdivide and add geometry to existing GTA models is very important. Below is a list with actions that may come in handy. No-brainer: Editable Mesh is inferior to Editable Poly. Use Poly, poly, poly, poly... Editable mesh modeling Vertex selection mode Edit Geometry section Attach: attaches another model in the scene to the selected mesh Chamfer: chamfer selection of vertices; creates additional geometry Weld: merges vertices together within a specified threshold Surface Properties section Edit Vertex Colors: sets the color and illumination of selected vertices Edge selection mode Edit Geometry section Divide: divides an edge, adding a new vertex where it was divided/split Extrude: create and pull a new face out from existing edges (keyboard shortcut: LSHIFT + LMB-drag) Face selection mode Edit Geometry section Divide: creates a new face Extrude: pulls the select face(s) outwards or inwards and creates new geometry off that Bevel: essentially an Extrude followed by scaling of the face Surface Properties section Flip: flips a face 180 degrees Smoothing groups: defines the smoothing of the model. Autosmooth is in many cases OK, but may not fulfil everyone's expectations Editable poly modeling Vertex selection mode Edit Vertices Connect: selecting 4 verts on a box side and using this function will triangulate the side. Edge selection mode Edit Edges Connect: creates an edge between the selected edges, as in a bridge between two cliff sides (use the 'Settings' to choose between multiple or one edge on creation) Polygon selection mode Edit Polygons Inset: places a new polygon inside the selected, allowing to be scaled Bridge: connects two opposing polygons by creating a bridge between them (can be used for walls and gaps) Edit Geometry Slice Plane: enables the user to create a perfect cut on the model, can be rotated by degrees Rendering scene Modelers working on projects for companies or friends might want to show what they've accomplished, but a regular screenshot may not suffice. Talking of a screenshot like this: Instead, the modeler might want to show the scene with textures. Perhaps more than just textures - lighting? reflections? transparency? - this is where 3D rendering comes into play, and can be done by simply pressing SHIFT + Q on the keyboard. This can also by default use alpha channel. However, the quality could improve. The quality of the render depends on the scene assets (models, materials, lights), the Renderer and its settings. By default, 3ds Max utilises Scanline Renderer. This is not a production quality render, but rather meant for test shots and demos. Though the quality isn't great, it's still possible to produce seemingly interesting renders. The following render took merely 8 seconds. Using 3ds Max allows modders to bring GTA:SA into modern graphics, easily comparable or even superior to ENB's. It also enables modelers to share visualizations of their models to help the customer understand how it could potentially look for their game. In the above render, a Skylight is used with Scanline Renderer. A very basic render, though interesting and contains lots of depth. In order to replicate this result, below are the steps to follow: On the Create panel, where one would normally find boxes and spheres, click the toolbar Lights. Where it says Photometric change that to Standard. Click the Skylight and place it in the 3ds Max scene. Settings for Skylight explained Multiplier: intensity of the light Sky color: the color of the light Cast shadows: enable to produce shadows, though this is more of an Ambient Occlusion than actual shadows Rays per sample: quality of the shadow, ideally keep at <5 for tests and 15-20 for final shots In the actual render above, a sample of 5 was used, creating grainy shadows but quick render. Backface culling was enabled to avoid slowing down the render time. Skylight is great light source and is generally used to illuminate an entire scene and not particular models. In the same Lights tab, one may find use of Omni or Free lights, which both works great. These are great point lights, which as opposed to skylight, are able to illuminate parts of the scene e.g acting as street lights. Modifiers When modeling, modifiers can come in use and save the modeler a lot of time. The following modifiers are highly suggested for beginners to know about. Bend: bends the model, effect depends on the differences in the geometry Mirror: copies the mesh and mirrors it on the other side, commonly used for vehicles using symmetrical geometry Smooth: generates and applies smoothing to the model, generally the lower values makes for higher file sizes Symmetry: essentially the same modifier as 'Mirror' Turbosmooth: Smoothens the mesh, adding geometry, uses iterations Unwrap UVW: advanced UV editing, commonly used for preparing textures for models like characters and game assets UVW map: basic UV editing, X/Y/Z projection mapping as well as spherical, box and planar mapping Vertexpaint: allows for painting colors onto vertices and faces, these colors are rendered during either ingame or night time Texturing a game-ready cube Modeling has to start somewhere. Using standard 3D primitives is a good place to start. For the purpose of this guide, a Cube will be created in 3ds Max and textured in Paint.net, a free image editing software. Video tutorial: To start off, navigate to 3ds Max's Create tab on the right hand side panel, as shown below. Shows the Create tab on the panel. For this guide, click on Box (Cube). Use LMB and click and drag the mouse in the viewport to create the cube. Now that the Cube primitive is spawned in the viewport, on the same panel that it was created from, go to Modify tab and set its dimension parameters to 5,0, 5,0, 5,0 and 1 segment for all 3. Convert the model to Editable Poly by right clicking it in the Viewport > Convert to > Editable Poly. Go into Polygon selection mode and scroll down until the following buttons are visible: With viewport selected, on the keyboard press `CTRL A` to select all faces on the cube. Now, where it says `Color`, click the bar and on `Value` set it to 100, then do the same for `Illumination` but value at 35. What this does is it sets the vertex colors so that the model won't be overexposed during day/night time. Exit polygon selection mode and on Modifier List, click that and find Unwrap UVW. This applies a modifier stacked on top of the Editable Poly mesh. Under Edit UVs click Open UV Editor. This allows the user to make changes to the UV coordinates which tells the model how textures are projected onto the model. On the editor, ensure that Polygon selection is enabled. While in the UV editor, press `CTRL A` to select all UV islands. On the top of the editor click Mapping, then Unfold Mapping.... Keep it as Walk to closest face and enable Normalize Clusters. Click OK. The result should remind the user of how a simple cardboard box in real life looks when it's yet to be folded into a box. With the model unwrapped, on the toolbar on the UV editor, click Tools > Render UVW Template. The export settings below are ideal for this particular task. If one wishes to know exact dimensions of each square, enable Seam Edges. After exporting, on the modifier stack, press Collapse to. This saves the new UV's. The width and height should be on a 1:1 ratio to avoid stretching issues. 1024x1024 is more than enough. On the rendered image window, click the Save button and find a location to save it in, name it Cube_unwrapped and use Alpha channel (optionally). Now open Paint.net and insert the image. Once happy with the result, export as cube_diffuse. Diffuse map generated with the help of a UVW template. In order to apply the texture on the model, simply drag and drop the image from file browser onto the model in the Viewport. Although the example above is not textured properly in regards to rotations, it shows what can be done by using UVW templates, and how easy it really is to produce textures for models made from scratch. The model can be directly exported as DFF. Materials are not required to be GTA or RW, they can be standard and still show ingame. Some exporters wants the model in Editable Mesh however, so converting it may be required. Thanks for reading this guide, we hope it helps and we wish you the best of luck with modelling!

    Hello, We, the eXo-Reallife team, would like to release a module that is also used on our server. It is a pathfinding module developed by Jusonex and StiviK. The module uses the A * algorithm. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A*_search_algorithm) We use this for our GPS: Why did we develop a module for this and did not simply write a script? This has a very simple reason. The module calculates the routes in your own threads, which has the advantage that it is much faster than a script, and secondly, you can calculate how much routes as you want side by side. This will not cause any lags etc.! What are the features of the module? The module can load several graphs / nodes side by side The module calculates the routes in its own threads Very useful API functions (such as findNodeAt or getNodeNeighbors) What are the main features? int loadPathGraph (String pathToGraphFile) This function loads the graph from the given file and returns a GraphId which you need for all other functions. If something does not work, false is returned. bool findShortestPathBetween (int graphId, float startX, float startY, float startZ, float endX, float endY, float endZ, function callback) This function finds the shortest route between the points. (Unfortunately, no vectors can be handed over!) The callback function is called when the calculation is finished. As an argument, either a table is returned that contains all nodes, or false if no route is found. bool unloadPathGraph (int graphId) You can use this function if you no longer need and want to unload the graph, it returns true if everything is fine, false if an error has occurred. You will find all the other functions that are included in our documentation. Why is the eXo team releasing all this? Well, that has the simple reason, we want to share our work with others and not just keep it for us! We hope we can enrich you with it and vlt. Even help! Where can I download the module? The whole module is open-source and can be viewed in our GitHub organization. It's released under the MIT License. GitHub organization: https://github.com/eXo-MTA Repository: https://github.com/eXo-MTA/ml_pathfind Download the module (Windows / Linux): https://github.com/eXo-MTA/ml_pathfind/releases Nodes of all roads in SA: https://github.com/eXo-MTA/ml_pathfind/blob/master/test/sa_nodes.json If you find any mistakes or suggestions, you can simply create a new issue and we will look into it. So now that's it, have fun with the module! - StiviK and the eXo-Reallife team (Original thread in German: https://www.mta-sa.org/thread/36365-release-mta-sa-pathfinding-module/?postID=407938#post407938)

    addEventHandler + group elements I noticed that some people like to add 10000000000000000 addEventHandlers for each element, while you probably only need 1 addEventHandler. Using ONE addEventHandler on a group of elements? Answer: local group = createElement("groupMyCutePeds") -- Create a custom element and save it in to the variable <group>. -- Create 3 peds. local ped1 = createPed(120, 5540.6654, 1020.55122, 1240.545) local ped2 = createPed(120, 5541.6654, 1021.55122, 1240.545) local ped3 = createPed(120, 5542.6654, 1022.55122, 1240.545) -- Set the parent of the 3 peds. setElementParent(ped1, group) setElementParent(ped2, group) setElementParent(ped3, group) -- Add an addEventHandler and use the <group> as <attachedTo> element. addEventHandler("onPedWasted", group, -- "onPedWasted" = serverside. "onClientPedWasted" = clientside. function () outputChatBox("One of my cute peds just died. ;'( No exceptions!") end) Code is untested, but the method is tested. Syntax for functions in example createElement syntax element createElement ( string elementType, [ string elementID = nil ] ) setElementParent syntax bool setElementParent ( element theElement, element parent ) addEventHandler syntax bool addEventHandler ( string eventName, element attachedTo, function handlerFunction, [ bool getPropagated = true, string priority = "normal" ] ) DO NOT disable getPropagated getPropagated: A boolean representing whether the handler will be triggered if the event was propagated down or up the element tree (starting from the source), and not triggered directly on attachedTo (that is, handlers attached with this argument set to false will only be triggered if source == this). If you disable this, children of the <group> element are not included. Make use of the element tree Element tree For applying addEventHandlers to elements created by the resource: Use: resourceRoot / getResourceRootElement For applying addEventHandlers to elements created by scripts of the resource: Use: getResourceDynamicElementRoot For applying addEventHandlers to elements created by maps of the resource: Use: getResourceMapRootElement I hope your code will be without... print(10^10^10^10) -- Print here: https://www.lua.org/cgi-bin/demo ...addEventHandlers in the future.

    Hello. Another year is coming to an end, so that means that just like the last year, we have got a new recap and status update post for you. For now, lets summarise all the interesting things that happened this year. 2017 in Recap Late April, we have released Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas 1.5.4. The release introduced an important change and extra security features for server owners, as well as some bugfixes. Around the same time, we have announced a public launch of our Discord server in order to improve communication with our player base. Since then, over 2350 users have visited it and chatted with us. We have also opened regional sections in it to cater to our international users. Then, in October, we have released Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas 1.5.5. Under the hood changes were the highlight of this release, however there was quite a lot of them. Near the release of 1.5.5, we have enabled some 2-factor authentication options for our forums. You can find them in your Forum Account's Settings page. More recently, we have been featured in Polish leading gaming network's (GRYOnline.pl) video about multiplayer mods for GTA series (the video is only in Polish unfortunately, subtitles are not available). Quite a lot of footage was dedicated to history and present of MTA and the mod was cited as one of the major possible inspirations for Rockstar's GTA:Online mode in GTA V. A bunch of interesting MTA:SA-related YouTube videos from this year MTA:SA The Fate Of The Furious - Havana Race (Recreation) [MTA:SA] Character Customization & 3D GUI MTA:SA-SAAF Dogfight Gameplay #2 by [TC]Joseph [UWS] United We Stand 15-13 [CLAY] Clay Team | MTA:SA ClanWar | With Rematch [MTA SA]: Graffiti System MTA - PUBG | BATTLEGROUNDS PRIMEIRA PARTIDA DO CANAL Current player counts and version fragmentation statistics Type Amount of players Date / Time Recent peak number of concurrent unique players 32068 players 2017.11.04 (at 17.30 GMT) Highest recorded number of concurrent unique players 32068 players 2017.11.04 (at 17.30 GMT) Recent number of daily unique players 156247 players 2017.12.26 (Tuesday) Highest recorded number of daily unique players 173585 players 2017.12.23 (Saturday) Recent number of monthly unique players 654399 players November, 2017 Highest recorded number of monthly unique players 668997 players January, 2017 Just like last year, there were new records for unique daily player count fairly recently. MTA:SA Version or series Percentage of players using that version or series as of 26th of December, 2017 1.5.5 97.60% 1.5.4 1.30% 1.5.3 0.30% 1.5.2 0.30% 1.4.x 0.33% 1.3.x 0.17% Very good. Two most recent releases from this year are used by nearly 99% of our player base. The newer the version, the better and more secure it is. *** Work continues on the next release. We have added some new scripting functions such as ones requested in #9562 (contributed by emre1702), as well as did some tweaks to already existing ones. Also did a fix for a memory leaks in the audio part of the Client and a bunch of other changes too. Think that's all for now. Best Wishes for 2018 from the MTA Team!

    Section Rules 1. Any fulfilled requests or discarded offers shall be reported via the report system in order to be locked and/or archived. This is mandatory, as the goal is to keep this section as clean and accurate as possible. 2.Topics must have a sufficient description of what are you offering or looking for. Eg. if you're looking for a scripter for your gamemode, you must detail what would you need the scripter for. This doesn't exactly involve giving away the whole concepts or whatever you don't want to disclose to the public, but it would be appreciated if you could include more details than just straight single line offers, such as "I need a scripter for a zombie gamemode". Whether or not the amount of detail is sufficient for the nature of your request is a subject to moderator judgement, and failing to meet criteria may result in your post being discarded. Formatting your topic In order to keep the section clean, accurate and easily viewable, it would be appreciated if you could use the following guidelines for your topic: 1. Topic titles should have the form [LF/OFFERING] Brief description [Paid/Non-Paid]. Please make the description as brief as possible here. Eg: [OFFERING] Skilled scripter [Paid] [OFFERING] Rookie modeller looking for some practice [Non-paid] [LF] Any-level scripter for a small server [Non-Paid] 2. The first post should be written in at least 2 parts: first part should contain a brief description of yourself (and/or the server or community you are from) second part should elaborate on what are you requesting/offering, once again, as detailed as you possibly can/want

    Hi! Following the community discussion in our forums, we have created an official Discord server quite a while ago, as an alternative (and maybe a full replacement in the future) to our current IRC channels. We kept it in under the radar while we were fine tuning things, but we believe we can now present it to you guys. All MTA players and fans are welcome to join our Discord server (though please behave while you are in there ). You can join it by using this link: https://mtasa.com/discord What is Discord? Discord is a hybrid of IRC, an Instant Messenger and a Voice Chat software. It incorporates the most important features of these elements into a handy and multiplatform app which you can run on your desktops, smartphones or tablets. Why is it cool? Compared to IRC, it offers a built-in chat history buffer, so even if you are offline, you can still catch up with what happened in the channels then. IRC also offers that, but only through an IRC Bouncer that you either need to pay for, or have someone host it for you. It also has a modern look and features such as URL embedding (regular websites, but also pictures and videos), handy syntax colouring for pasted code snippets, emojis (also custom ones), chat messages reactions, Steam integration and more. What can I find while I am there? We currently have some channels created, including: #general - for general MTA and offtopic chats #scripting - for Lua scripting-related queries #support - for any problems related to MTA:SA client or server #announcements - for all important messages from us as well as some others. We are still thinking of how to put our Discord server into its full potential, so we may add more channels soon. Can I have Discord app installed and/or running on several of my devices concurrently? Can I use more than one server? Sure, absolutely. It will sync the messages automatically. And yes, you can add more servers than just our one. How do I join it? Hey, we have mentioned that already. Just click the link below and follow the instructions: https://discord.gg/RygaCSD or https://mtasa.com/discord I have a suggestion about the Discord... Okay, let us know. As usual, we are open for suggestions. Just post in this topic or hit us up directly on Discord. Hope to see you there! -- MTA Team

    Debugging Do you know what debugging is? You might think you do, but unfortunately (in my opinion) only ~15% of the scripters in the community do know the full definition of it. Many people think that debugging code is the same as looking in to the Debug Console and waiting for warning + errors to show up. That's indeed debugging and yet it never provide all information you need to build your scripts. It only can say what goes wrong at a certain line. With other words, the Debug Console by default will only show a limited amount of mistakes you have made in your code. So what is next? You fixed all warnings and errors and yet it doesn't work. You start with making your code visible! I guess 70% would think: Making code visible? Ehhh how??? Let me write it down a little bit different: By using Debug Information making the behaviour of the code visible. I guess 50% would think: Eh what? behaviour of code????? Let me give you an example. Example: (1) outputDebugString("the script has started") -- < this is a debug line if true then outputDebugString("code works here") -- < this is a debug line else outputDebugString("code shouldn't be working here") -- < this is a debug line end Debug console "the script has started" "code works here" The debug console is NOT information for players, it is information for YOU developers! BTW this is a debug line outputDebugString("test") -- < this is a debug line In this case it is just a piece of code that shows information in the debug console. Example: (2) local playerName1 = "snake1" local playerName2 = "cow" if playerName1 == playerName2 then outputDebugString("players playerName1 and playerName2 do share the same name. Name: " .. tostring(playerName1)) -- < this is a debug line else outputDebugString("players playerName1 and playerName2 do NOT share the same name. playerName1: " .. tostring(playerName1) .. ", playerName2: " .. tostring(playerName2)) -- < this is a debug line end Debug console "players playerName1 and playerName2 do NOT share the same name. playerName1: snake1, playerName2: cow" Easy isn't? The concept behind this debug method is to see what the code does / doesn't execute. Is this method handy? It is actually the very basic of debugging, for code that doesn't contain any errors/warnings. I would say it is handy and it is a very powerful method too. It is also handy for people who do not know how to script. If you want people to help you with your code, but you do not know what is wrong with it. You can add those debug lines and point out to where the code stops working. This will make it more efficient for you and the scripter to work out the problem, because the scripter knows where to look. How much debug lines do you have to add to your script? 1? 10? 100? 1000? You could start with around 100 debug lines and as you learn how to script, you can reduce it to 10+ debug lines. Too much debug lines are not always good, because they will give you too much information and it will cost time to manually filter them. So I recommend you to remove some of them afterwards. When you are finished with the tested code, you can remove 90+% of them. Feel free to disable them instead of removing them, if you know that you are going to need them again. For complex code, I use around 25 debug lines, SO DON'T HOLD BACK! Render events It is strongly recommended to remove debug lines that are executed on onClientRender/render events when you are finished with your code. Because that can have influence on the smooth fps.(It will not drop much of the fps, but it can make it feel unsmooth) Clearing the debug console? /cleardebug Know your tools: outputDebugString -- Show a message on the Debug Console bool outputDebugString ( string text, [ int level=3, int red=255, int green=255, int blue=255 ] ) --- outputConsole -- Show a message on the F8 panel. bool outputConsole ( string text ) -- client bool outputConsole ( string text, [ element visibleTo=getRootElement() ] ) -- server --- inspect -- Convert one mixed value to a string. string inspect ( mixed var ) --- print -- Show a message on the terminal / serverwindow / Debug Console. bool print ( string var1[, string var2, string var3...] ) --- tostring() -- Convert a value in to a string.

    Introduction Properly handling your user's credentials (username and password) is very important, this guide gives detailed information and code samples on how to (properly) implement an account "system". This guide assumes you are not using MTA's built in accounts. Disclaimer: Any code shown in this tutorial is purely for illustrative purposes, and is not finished code, you should use it as a guideline, not a solution. Content The following topics will be discussed in this tutorial: How to hash and salt passwords (register) How to validate a hashed password (login) How to add "remember-me" functionality How to offer password recovery How to migrate from an older hashing algorithm, to a newer one Using a password policy (Extra) How to handle database leaks (Extra) What even is hashing and salting? For the purpose of this tutorial we expect a database structure which is somewhat similar to this: How to hash and salt passwords When you have a user register on your service, that user expects of you to keep their password safe. Whilst it is generally bad practice to use the same password for multiple services there are many users that still do so. Because of this it's crucial that you save the user's passwords in a way that an attacker will be unable to find out the original password the user typed. This includes if they have full access to your database. In order to do this we do what is called "Password hashing" When a user registers, your server receives the user's intended username, (email) and password. Before you save that password to the database you have to hash and salt this, luckily MTA has a function that takes care of this. If you wish to know more about what exactly it does, there's more information at the end of this tutorial. In order to hash this password you use the passwordHash function. This function is relatively slow (by design), so it is highly recommended you pass a callback to this function, so your entire script doesn't wait for it to complete. https://wiki.multitheftauto.com/wiki/PasswordHash local mysqlHandle -- we're assuming this value is set somewhere else in code function register(username, email, password) local player = client passwordHash(password, "bcrypt", {}, function(hashedPassword) -- callback function for hashing the password local handle = dbQuery(function(handle) -- callback function for storing the user in the database if (handle) then triggerClientEvent(player, "registrationSuccess") -- inform the user that registration was successful else triggerClientEvent(player, "registrationFailed") end end,mysqlHandle, "INSERT INTO users (email, username, password) VALUES (?, ?, ?)", email, username, hashedPassword) end) end addEvent("passwordTutorial:register", true) addEventHandler("passwordTutorial:register", getRootElement(), register) How to validate a hashed password Once you've saved the hashed password to your database you need to do a little bit of additional work when authenticating the user. Luckily MTA offers a passwordVerify() function, which is the counterpart of the previously discussed passwordHash(). What this function does it basically hashes the password in the same way, resulting in the same output hash. https://wiki.multitheftauto.com/wiki/passwordVerify In order to get the account the user is trying to log in to you have to do a query for an account which has the user submitted username, and of which the password matches through passwordVerify. PasswordVerify is also a relatively slow function, thus you should use a callback. function login(username, password) local player = client dbQuery(function (handle) -- callback for the query selecting the user by username local results = dbPoll(handle, -1) if (#results == 0) then triggerClientEvent(player, "loginFailed") return end passwordVerify(password, results[1].password, {}, function(matches) -- callback function for the password verify if (matches) then -- Do anything you wish with the database result to log the player in with the rest of your scripts triggerClientEvent(player, "loginSuccess") else triggerClientEvent(player, "loginFailed") end end) end, mysqlHandle, "SELECT * FROM users WHERE username = ?", username) end addEvent("passwordTutorial:login", true) addEventHandler("passwordTutorial:login", getRootElement(), login) How to add "remember me" functionality When users on your server log in, they often do not want to have to enter their username and password every time they want to log in. In order to satisfy this need you can implement a "remember me" function. What I've seen happen in the past, is people would store the user's password (encrypted) on the client. This is NOT safe, and should never be done! In order to properly use remember me functionality what you would do is upon login in, generate a random string. The longer the better. This random string is what we call an access token. You would then allow the user to log in with such an access token, preferably only once generating a new access token each time one is used. To implement this you would generate that token every time the user logs in, whilst they have "remember me" enabled. You will have to save this token in your database alongside your user. For extra security you could also store the user's serial alongside the access token, you can then validate that the access token is being used from the same device. https://wiki.multitheftauto.com/wiki/Filepath function login(username, password) -- This code should be put in the callback to the dbQuery function, but to keep the example clean that's not shown here if (rememberMe) then local token = generateRandomToken() dbQuery(mysqlHandle, "INSERT INTO access_tokens (user_id, token) VALUES (?, ?)", results[1].id, token) triggerClientEvent(player, "loginSuccess", token) end end function rememberMeLogin(username, accessToken) -- this function handles a user's login attempt dbQuery(function(handle) local result = dbPoll(handle, -1) if (#result == 0) then triggerClientEvent(player, "loginFailed") else -- Do anything you wish with the database result to log the player in with the rest of your scripts triggerClientEvent(player, "loginSuccess") end end,mysqlHandle, "SELECT users.* FROM access_tokens JOIN users ON users.id = access_tokens.user_id WHERE users.username = ?", username) end addEvent("passwordTutorial:loginRememberMe", true) addEventHandler("passwordTutorial:loginRememberMe", getRootElement(), login) How to offer password recovery Offering password recovery requires a little bit more than just your MTA server. Generally password recovery is done with emails. So you would need access to an email server / service which you can use to send an email from an HTTP request. (Like you can do with fetchRemote()). When a user requests a password reset, have them enter the email you registered with. You then fetch a user from the database with this email address. You would then store a password recovery token for this user. This token, just like the remember me token, is a random string. Ideally, you would send the user a link with a password reset form that goes to a webpage where the user can reset their password. You could do this with an external service, like a webserver. Or you could use MTA's Resource web access for it, but if you do make sure you handle permissions properly for anything else that uses this. However another option would be to have the user copy paste the generated token from the email into you server's login window. Which of the two solutions you pick is up to you, my personal preference goes to the one with the link in the email. But in either case the server side logic is the same. When the user attempts to perform password recovery, verify that the token they give you belongs to a user, and then change the password to the newly requested password. Make sure you hash this password the same way you do in your login. function requestPasswordRecovery(email) dbQuery(function (handle)) local result = dbPoll(handle, -1) if (#result == 0) then triggerClientEvent(player, "passwordTutorial:passwordRecoveryRequestFailed") else local token = generateRandomToken() dbExec(mysqlHandle, "UPDATE user_data SET recovery_token = ?", token) -- mail the token to the user, mail implementation depends on the mail server/service you use triggerClientEvent(player, "passwordTutorial:passwordRecoveryRequestSuccess") end end, mysqlHandle, "SELECT * FROM users WHERE email = ?", email) end function recoverPassword(recoveryToken, password) dbQuery(function (handle) local result = dbPoll(handle, -1) if (#result == 0) then -- this is only valid if you have the user request password recovery from ingame triggerClientEvent(player, "passwordTutorial:passwordRecoveryFailed") else passwordHash(password, "bcrypt", {}, function(hashedPassword) -- callback function for hashing the password local handle = dbExec(function(handle) -- callback function for storing the new password in the database if (handle) then -- this is only valid if you have the user request password recovery from ingame triggerClientEvent(player, "passwordTutorial:passwordRecoverySuccess") -- inform the user that registration was successful else -- this is only valid if you have the user request password recovery from ingame triggerClientEvent(player, "passwordTutorial:passwordRecoveryFailed") end end,mysqlHandle, "UPDATE user_data SET password = ? WHERE recovery_token = ?", username, recoveryToken) end) end end, "SELECT * FROM users WHERE recovery_token = ?", recoveryToken) end Besides changing the password, it's important you also delete any access tokens that user might have if you're using remember me functionality. It is also good practice to make recovery tokens expiry after a certain amount of times, and not allow a recovery token to be created whilst one is already in progress. This prevents a user from sending a large number of emails from your service. How to migrate from an older hashing algorithm, to a newer one Maybe after reading this topic you realise that your password security is not what it should be. So you want to change your old password hashing / validation logic to the ones explained in this topic. And due to the nature that hashes can not be "unhashed", you can't simply migrate your passwords over. So in order to migrate the passwords what you have to do is when a user logs in, first validate their password with the old hashing algorithm. If this matches, then hash (and salt) it with your new hashing algorithm and save it in your database. Make sure to delete the old password otherwise your password security is not any better than before. Using a password policy Passwords policies are important to prevent your users from picking a password that is too easily cracked / brute forced. Many password policies come in the form of "Must have at least one capital letter, one digit and one number". But that discards that fact that the best way to make your password more difficult to crack, is making your password longer. So in the code snippet below is a function that measures the 'search space' of a password. The search space of a password is the amount of possible passwords there are with a certain combination of characters. In order to use this, you would have to set a minimum password search space when a user registers for an account. This minimum is up for you to set, but be reasonable, you shouldn't expect a user's password to be impossible to remember / create. I recommend playing with the function a bit to see what values you get out of it, and pick something you believe is sensible. function getPasswordSearchSpace(password) local lowerCase = password:find("%l") and 26 or 0 local upperCase = password:find("%u") and 26 or 0 local digits = password:find("%d") and 10 or 0 local symbols = password:find("%W") and 32 or 0 local length = password:len() return (lowerCase + upperCase + digits + symbols) ^ length end -- The below function calls are to indicate the difference in search space for a set of passwords print(getPasswordSearchSpace("a")) print(getPasswordSearchSpace("abc")) print(getPasswordSearchSpace("Abc")) print(getPasswordSearchSpace("Ab!")) print(getPasswordSearchSpace("Ab!0")) print(getPasswordSearchSpace("Mu#9A0h.")) print(getPasswordSearchSpace("This is a demonstration of how easy an incredibly strong password is to remember")) How to handle database leaks If you have reason to believe that your database has been leaked or otherwise compromised, it is important that your first course of action is removing any access tokens stored in your database. Once you have done that you have to inform your users. Whilst when properly hashed and salted it's extremely difficult / time consuming to find out a user's password it is still a possibility. So you should inform your users of the breach, tell them that their passwords were properly hashed, and they do not need to fear for their passwords immediately. However you should suggest to your users that they change their password either way, just in case. What even is hashing and salting? Hashing has been brought up several times in this tutorial, whilst you do not need to know what it is / does, you might be interested in knowing regardless. I won't be going too far in depth as I simply do not have the knowledge, but the basic idea of hashing is this: When you hash anything, you turn it into a string of characters (or other value) that has no relation to the original input, other than when you hash the original input again, it will always generate the same hash. For example, when you hash the string 'banana' using the sha512 hashing algorithm, it will always yield the output: "F8E3183D38E6C51889582CB260AB825252F395B4AC8FB0E6B13E9A71F7C10A80D5301E4A949F2783CB0C20205F1D850F87045F4420AD2271C8FD5F0CD8944BE3" Now hashing can not be reverted, you can not "unhash" a hash, so in order to verify someone's password you hash it again, and see if the two hashes are the exact same. Now this is great, passwords are safely stored. However there is still more to do, salting. Salting is adding some random data to your password prior to hashing it. This prevents when two users (on the same service, or on others) have the same password, that their hashes are also the same. Meaning if one password is compromised, the other password is not. It is important that a salt is random for every user in your application, not one salt for your entire application. Now you might think we didn't do any salting in the code / tutorial above. This is not true, we just didn't do it ourselves. MTA's passwordHash function actually hashes the passwords and salts it, this salt is then stored in the output hash it self, just before the actual password hash. In the case of bcrypt it actually stores a little bit more info in the resulting hash, but you need not worry about that.
