  1. Step 1: Give up. It is hopeless. Step 2: Turn off your computer and sell it to someone else. Step 3: Go play another multiplayer game on the console of your choice.
  2. Well it looks like the problem was more than the harddrive. It looks like the mobo has died along with it. (Power surge??) I wouldn't mind if you guys hosted it. I have backup copies I can probably edit and get back to were it was, plus I still have the step by step screen shots. Give me a yell on IRC, and I'll get you the files so you can host them.

    Lan games to play

    Hey... My blazingly high speed P2 350 with 64MB of RAM and an ATI Rage Pro 8MB ran CS just fine thank you. And it ran it in D3D too. No crappy software rendering.
  5. I have a PS2, but it was given to me as a gift. The only reason Microsoft gets money is through licensing royalties hidden in game purchases. Buying JUST and XBox is a massive loss to Microsoft. They subsidize the cost of the console in hopes of making it back with licensing on the games sold for it. This is why I bought JUST an XBox. I guess it sends a nice "screw you". I've got a SNES emulator running on my XBox, and that is all I really use it for.
  6. Every XBox that gets bought is a loss to Microsoft. Besides, it makes a great PC for super cheap. The games are a bonus, but I won't buy any.
  7. I've tried getting Vice City running myself. However, I've had no luck with MTA. Maybe somewhere down the line, support for this can be provided?
  8. I'm glad I'm not an English teacher. He never said he didn't want to add the cars into MTA did he? Maybe he's just asking here because he thinks he might get a better response here instead of locating a site dedicated to such things. Why he thinks this...I'm not sure.

  11. As part of your anti cheat initiative, and part of the game mode set up, why not have the server store virtually all settings. Mainly the only thing I can think of at this point would be game speed. That way MTA doesn't just read what is going on, it will have the ability to write as well (thus stopping some obscure hacks). This could also (in the future) allow for server side mods that all clients will sync to when they connect (not content like new cars, just things like faster cars for stunts, or 2x gamespeed for insane-o mode...) Also, please reconsider the use CRC. This is very easy to fake, and if stopping cheaters is your goal, this will be circumvented far too easily. Consider MD5.

    NO CD hack?

    Eh? http://www.cd-pressage.com/downloads/safedisc.pdf http://www.winehq.com/hypermail/wine-de ... fedisc.txt http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php ... adid=45260 There is mention of using a checksum, but that is merely one step in the process.

    NO CD hack?

    The original poster was wanting an install that automatically overwrote the original executable with a "no-cd version. And last time I checked, no CD verification utility EVER used CRC. Correct me if I am wrong, but the protection used on Vice City is called "SecuRom". No one is asking for MTA to do SecuRom checks. They were looking for a way to get around them, since they claim it to be "legal". My advice was for them to find their own, and claim their own responsibility, instead of MTA potentially providing a way for those that do not have legitimate copies to otherwise circumvent this. And thank YOU.
  14. Yeah, regedit works wonders if you don't have internet. Oh wait, MTA requires internet, and so does ASE if you want updated servers. Short of running a firewall and blocking the port ASE uses to check the key you've managed to hack in, this does you zero good. Try again.

    I think I can go on living happily without being baffled by your ignorance.
