    Give package

    It may be worth checking the MTA Community site to see whether such resource already exists. As aforesaid, we are happy to point you in the right direction and fix any minor bugs, but we do not create scripts on demand.

    Just a question

    If you want to report players, use the forum/website of the relevant server.
  4. Does GTA San Andreas (the single-player game) work? Can you play it without any issues?

    how to use aexec

    aexec <playerName> <command> For example: /aexec Callum say Hello world! Moderator note for knownledgebase: This (example) is a reason why you should never trust what a player appears to say in chat, as admins can use aexec to speak out of anyone's name. Unless you have access to the server.log, you cannot determine whether or not aexec was used to force a player to 'talk'. aexec can be explained to mean 'admin-execute (a-exec)', in which admin will be able to execute commands for a player. Likewise, other commands that can be triggered using aexec can also make the player perform or seem to do actions they are infact not doing themselves. For that reason it's used commonly as a tool to troll players. Maybe you have noticed not all commands can be triggered using aexec, it would appear only commands implemented through client-sided scripts allow for it to work. Hardcoded MTA 'commands' (such as "say" for mainchat, "me" for /me in chat) can generally be used, but commands such as "disconnect" or "quit" can, although hardcoded, not be triggered. Also you should pay attention to the fact any command in the aexec syntax cannot have a / (slash), just like how typing commands in F8 for yourself needs to be without slash. So it should be "aexec [exact playername] command" and not "aexec [exact playername] /command", and for "T" chat execution it should be "/aexec [exact playername] command" but still not /aexec [exact playername /command"

    As a basic outline, you will want to make use of timers, and (I'd imagine) givePlayerMoney.

    FREE Scripting Lessons!

    I have launched a new, entirely free service that offers personal tutoring to anybody who wants to learn new MTA skills, including: Setting up an MTA Server Resources / scripts / meta.xml Writing Lua code MTA concepts such as events, timers, client-side interfaces, etc. SQL and other data storage methods I've been in the MTA community for coming up to 11 years now, and have worked with many of the 'big servers' that exist today, so the information will be delivered by people (including myself) with plenty of experience. The few students I'm already tutoring are well on their way to writing some basic MTA scripts already, after only a few days (totaling 4-5 hours). If you want to get involved, be sure to join the Discord server. You can also click here to see the recommended syllabus. If you know of anybody else who wants to learn to script, be sure to let them know of this great offer!

    Ports not working!

    I know you've mentioned the firewall is closed, but just ensure (if you haven't already) that Windows Firewall is either disabled, or configured to allow MTA Server to bypass it.

    Simply wait for the ban to expire and you will be able to play again.

    best idea competition

    You can use the bug tracker to submit requests for future versions. They can easily be organised and prioritised by the MTA development team.

    Need help with hosting a server.

    I've heard this idea floating around a few times, but unfortunately I don't know of any servers that offer this.
