  1. Thanks, I'll delete the whole resources folder and then try that one.
  2. So I haven't played MTA:SA in over a year and just downloaded 1.0.5... Now the problem is that very rarely in race mode, when you go to spectator mode, the cam will follow the player for a second and then just stop, so the player you're watching just drives away. Switching to another player using < or > will follow another player for a second and then just do the same. If you respawn and die the next time, it might just work perfectly again. Also when this happens and you keep hammering < or >, it might be that on respawn, you fall off your bike or out of your car and die again right away. I downloaded the race game mode from the "maps and modes" section on the main page, so I assume it should be the latest version. Am I doing anything wrong?

    Resolution Help

    Any chance this will happen soon? I know lots of people who want to use 1920x1080....
  4. OK finally I found the cause In util_server.lua the warpPedIntoVehicle() function gets redefined, and this version does not support peds and seats... Simple reason, long time to find it
  5. Well as I am a fan of learning by doing, I thought I should try to add some (mostly useless) features to existing resources instead of immediately trying to create a new game mode. So one simple idea I had was to add some passengers to every vehicle in the race resource, but apparently this doesn't work. Below the line vehicle = createVehicle(spawnpoint.vehicle, x, y, z, 0, 0, spawnpoint.rotation, #nick <= 8 and nick or nick:sub(1, 8)) in race_server.lua, I added: local ped = createPed(9, x + 2, y + 2, z + 1) warpPedIntoVehicle(ped, vehicle, 1) The ped gets created, but it stays outside the vehicle, the function returns false. ... So what's wrong here?
  6. if (z < 1900) then was meant to move the barrels up that are currently on the ground, the else-part was meant to move the barrels down that are currently at z + 2000... But well, if 1.0.1 is about to be released I sure can wait a few more days :)
  7. Hi there, since I have lots of race tracks on my server that use plenty of explosive barrels, there are a lot of desyncs happening, where player A can still see a barrel while player B can't, and if player B hits the barrel on player A's client, he will still explode, which causes a lot of confusion or frustration. Maybe some of you are familiar with this occurrence. So while I don't really know how to make it work like in the old race client, where the player only exploded if he hit the barrel in his own client, my idea now was to make the barrels respawn periodically. It should at least be less confusing. More precisely that means: - For every barrel, create another barrel which will be located at z + 2000 - Every X seconds, call a function that iterates through all barrels and if z > 1900 move it to z - 2000, otherwise move it to z + 2000 (all modifications happen in race_client.lua) So this would make each pair of barrels switch places. Since the barrel is out of reach when it is at z + 2000, it will be streamed out and is not visible anymore, so when it is moved back down on the second call to the function, it is visible again. I tried modifying the code in initRace() to something like this: -- objects g_Objects = {} local pos, rot, cnt = 0 -- use the cnt var to get a unique index for all objects for i,object in ipairs(objects) do pos = object.position rot = object.rotation cnt = cnt + 1 g_Objects[cnt] = createObject(object.model, pos[1], pos[2], pos[3], rot[1], rot[2], rot[3]) if object.model == 1225 then -- if the object was a barrel, create another one at (x, y, z + 2000) cnt = cnt + 1 g_Objects[cnt] = createObject(object.model, pos[1], pos[2], pos[3] + 2000, rot[1], rot[2], rot[3]) end end But this already fails... 1225 would be the explosive barrel, but the second set of barrels won't be created. My switching function looks like this: -- Reset all explosives function resetExplosives() allObjects = getElementsByType ( "object" ) --outputConsole( 'objects: ' .. tostring(#allObjects)) for i,obj in ipairs(allObjects) do local model = getElementModel(obj) if model == 1225 then local x,y,z = getElementPosition(obj) if (z < 1900) then setElementPosition(obj, x, y, z + 2000) else setElementPosition(obj, x, y, z - 2000) end end end end Which works perfectly, the only problem being that since there is no second set of barrels, the barrels will just appear and disappear all the time. The function gets called by a timer created in the onClientResourceStart event: g_ExplosiveResetTimer = setTimer(resetExplosives, 2000, 0) I must admit that I'm still very unfamiliar with MTA scripting and some parts of the race resource are totally unclear to me Hopefully someone can understand what I am trying to do and provide a little help.
  8. So I copied all the missing libs from a 32bit debian and now the server even starts up, but doesn't get really far: is in the executable's directory... The also exists in the place the server reports.
  9. I just want to run the server on 5.0 64bit. I cannot use the debian package, as debian looks for a 64bit release at that url and doesn't find one of course. Then I downloaded the generic linux build, but when I try to launch that one I get an error about a missing Where can I get that one? apt-getting libcurl doesn't help, I guess this only installs the 64bit libs. Any ideas?
  10. Racemode thing was my first idea too, but then it doesn't make sense, because you will eventually get out of the car after tapping F for like 10 times. You can't do that in racemode. So we got two people with windows servers where that happened... Any linux servers with the same symptoms here? Or any windows server without?
  11. Hmmm... Is your server running on windows? My new theory is, that this happens on windows servers only.. Its not just on my modified ctv script, its in everygamemode now that I've checked that. So it really seems like a bug. Can maybe more people confirm that or say anything about that problem? Unfortunately I baraly have time for MTA atm because of tests at univ
  12. I just started scripting with lua, and since my favourite gamemode is ctv, I thought a good thing to start with would be understanding the script and trying to modify it. And so I did. My ideas were: -- Add a scorecounter for the teams -- Add a message when the car is delivered (relized there was such a message, but the call was screwed up so it never showed up in game) -- Make the car not just disappear but explode when it gets delivered, so get out of the car and run! -- Remove the /bring command And there comes the trouble: Suddenly with this script, sometimes you can't get out of the car. You press F (or whatever key you use to enter/exit) and the player in car just makes a strange movement with the hands (like he is steering left/right) and stays in car. Sometimes the radio stops for half a second too. So currently you end up pressing F all the time until he finally gets out of the car. I don't see any reason why this suddenly happens, I checked the playerExitVehicle funtion, nothing suspicious there, the event isn't called if the driver stays in the car. I also checked the wiki for any function like that, but didn't find one. Maybe its just that something is screwed up with my server, but I at least know that it happens for other players too, so its not just my client/game. Any ideas? I attached the modified ctv scripts, in case that helps... Err no, I didn't: "Could not upload attachment to ./files/15278_f66a0276935a100b2697cd1ab2718dbc." Here it is:

  14. Hi, following Error appears: Any ideas whats wrong? EDIT: Already tried chpaxing the mta_server and disabled all security flags, but no change...
  15. Dont have friends? Bad at computer gaming? Your mum still wipes your butt? You just feel like a loser? Dont worry! There is a solution: Use cheats. You will feel so good once you used them. You are the greatest, everyone will like you, you will even be able to go to school on your own and wont cry anymore if your brother hides your teddybear!
