  1. have u tried right click and edit with notepad just to get the serial number or are u still trying to recover the reg files it would be awesome if this is possible because i could get mine back then hopefully
  2. if u have managed to install MTA its not to big a problem go to MTABETA.COM and login with your original account name and then look at your profile and it should have your serial number listed open windows registry and go to My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Multi Theft Auto : San Andreas on the right of the screen should be 2 entries 1 is DEFAULT with the path for MTA 2 is GTA : SA Path with the path for GTA game u need to right click and create 2 new string values call the first one serial and the second one username then right click first string value and modify then put serial number from MTABETA.COM with the - in place then right click second string value and modify then put original username there i think that should get u goin
  3. im trying to upload it to fileshack for u but not gettin anywhere at the moment. i will post the link as soon as i can. here u go http://rapidshare.de/files/40053761/mtasadm_v1.0-dp2.exe.html small warning though i have had the same problem with 2.1 i reinstalled windows XP and then did MTA install with 2.0 chose not to create account and then it said the account was connected to another PC and did i want to transfer it to this one. didnt think it would be a problem as i was just doing a reinstall on same PC so i said yes. then when i tried to start the game it said i had invalid serial number so i went to MTABETA.com to get the serial and it was GONE! i dont know if this was because i said to associate the account with the PC or what caused it but be CAREFUL as the serial generator is down and now im stuck until it is back on. when i lost my account details before LIL TOADY managed to find it for me but im a bit lost now any way i hope this will help and ill get that link posted as soon as possible
  4. i have three accounts running on three pcs on my network 2 of them are fine but about a month ago one copy of MTA stopped workin tried everything i could think of and everything on the forums but no good ended up reinstalling windows XP and have just gone to re enter username and serial number but the serial number no longer appears in my profile on MTA BETA.COM ( what the hell ) i have read every other serial problem forum here ( and all the misplaced ones as well ) but i cant see anyone with this problem i know serial generator is down but i dont think i need it as i just need to find my old serial number only thing i can think that i have done wrong is when i tried to reinstall MTA i said i already have an account and then it asked if i want to associate that account with this computer. i assumed that would be fine but then it told me i provided an invalid serial so i went to mta beta.com to get serial and put it in registry but it is not there and it says i havent made one yet even though i know i have sorry if this sounds dumb and i understand if nothing can be done at the moment ( i did see the post about hardware changes in the news could that be the problem ) but i thought i should just be able to run the install and then put serial in after any help really appreciated. LIL TOADY helped me to recover the details for the account before so im pretty sure its OK account name is : mistermax911 EDIT : after a bit more looking i noticed a post saying u cant get your old serial number but 10-15 minutes before running MTA install i went to MTA BETA.com and my serial number was there. downloaded mta installer ran the installer and went back to mta beta.com to get serial and it was gone. this is why i think i did something wrong when i chose associate account with this computer. i dont know why this would be a problem because i am trying to reinstall on the same PC EDIT 2 : just been back to mta beta.com and it lists the serial numbers for both my other accounts so i think i have messed something up. i assume i will have to wait until everything is back online but if anyone knows a way around this i would really appreciate the help
  5. try stopping all other resources first in server window just type stopall with no space and it should say all resources stopped then type start broph and u should be ok if you look in the MTASERVER directory \mods\deathmatch\ and open mtaserver.cfg and scroll to bottom you will see this <!-- Specifies resources that are loaded when the server starts and/or which are protected from being stopped. To specify several resources, add more <resource> parameter(s). --> <resource src="admin" startup="1" protected="0"/> <resource src="helpmanager" startup="1" protected="0"/> <resource src="mapcycler" startup="1" protected="0"/> <resource src="mapmanager" startup="1" protected="0"/> <resource src="resourcebrowser" startup="1" protected="1" default="true"/> <resource src="resourcemanager" startup="1" protected="1"/> <resource src="scoreboard" startup="1" protected="0"/> <resource src="spawnmanager" startup="1" protected="0"/> <resource src="votemanager" startup="1" protected="0"/> <resource src="webadmin" startup="1" protected="0"/> this is all the resources that start when u start the server i have found that they sometimes conflict with other resources i have found ADMIN and HELPMANAGER to be quite useful though so u might want to restart those happy to help more if that doesnt do the trick
  6. i think all control settings have to be done in single player and MTA will pick up the changes from there. i havent come across any control settings in MTA itself. i have seen in other threads people having problems with mouse not working and they had to change control configuration in single player. just start GTA SA as normal without MTA and change control settings there. hope that helps
  7. the script from tma sorts out the falling through the world problem but when i first tried setting the camera position and then set camera look at player if u drove or walked a little way past the camera u would start falling through the world at the time i was trying to make what i call a thrillcam which when u jumped off a ramp u would hit a collision sphere at the top of ramp camera would be fixed about 20 - 30 feet in front of you and would watch the car as it did the jump and then switch back to normal. that part worked fine but if u drove another 50 feet or so then u would fall through. there was also an issue where the camera position would only be put in the right postion every other time i tried to change it. when u hit collision sphere to trigger camera change the first time the camera would be set to position 0, 0, 0 but the second time it would put the camera where i wanted it and third time it would be 0, 0, 0 again and fourth would put camera in the right place. i tried the script about 30 times in a row and kept getting same result. i put some screenshots in the thread that i linked to earlier. im not really sure how TMA got around it but with the script he gave me it is no longer a problem. i have seen your MODSHOP resource 50P ( very cool ) so i know what u mean about the rotating camera and i must admit i did look through your script when i was trying to figure out how to do my thrillcam but in the end TMA helped me out as im a pretty NOOB scripter
  8. i have been working on a special camera for when u do jumps but im not sure if its quite what u need do u want the camera to follow the train like it does in a car or do u want a cinematic camera like 50P mentioned there are a lot of issues with the camera functions at the moment ( i have heard they should be fixed in DP3 but nothing certain yet ) if u set the camera to a fixed position then set it to look at the player it causes the world to become un solid ( you fall through the ground ) and if you use onClientRender the camera becomes very twitchy and frame rate seems to drop considerably http://forum.mtasa.com/viewtopic.php?f=91&t=23086 if u look at this thread TMA has posted a workaround for the problem of falling through the world but this script puts the camera in a fixed position and then looks at the player so i dont know if it will be any use to you if u want camera to follow the train u could probably use getElementposition of the player and keep moving the camera according to where the train is but it would still be a lot like the cinematic camera. i dont know if this can be adapted to follow the train closely but its probably worth a try
  9. i think this is what u need GUI system to spawn cars , warp player , create vehicles and loads more just download and put in your resources directory then start resource i think it is meant for freeroam so i dont know if it will work with other gamemodes http://community.mtasa.com/index.php?p=resources&s=details&id=43
  10. not sure about objects but when u set new textures for cars u always have to load the texture twice or the car is white most people set the load texture function to a user command and just do it twice and texture loads second time you run function an idea that i have seen ( not tried yet ) is to use setTimer on the TXD and DFF file load so when u type command it loads TXD and DFF then waits 5 seconds or so and repeats. i dont think there is any other way around it yet but i have heard they are trying to improve it for DP3 hope that helps
  11. if u just want the vehicles from map file to respawn u can use the consolecreatevehicle function in broph but there is one little thing to change here is the function function consoleCreateVehicle ( player, commandName, first, second, third ) if ( player ) then local id, x, y, z, r, d = 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 5 local plate = false r = getPlayerRotation ( player ) x, y, z = getElementPosition ( player ) x = x + ( ( math.cos ( math.rad ( r ) ) ) * d ) y = y + ( ( math.sin ( math.rad ( r ) ) ) * d ) if ( third ) then id = getVehicleIDFromName ( first .. " " .. second ) plate = third elseif ( second ) then if ( getVehicleIDFromName ( first .. " " .. second ) ) then id = getVehicleIDFromName ( first .. " " .. second ) else id = getVehicleIDFromName ( first ) if ( not id ) then id = tonumber ( first ) end plate = second end else id = getVehicleIDFromName ( first ) if ( not id ) then id = tonumber ( first ) end end local veh = false if ( plate == false ) then veh = createVehicle ( id, x, y, z, 0, 0, r ) --toggleVehicleRespawn ( veh, false ) else veh = createVehicle ( id, x, y, z, 0, 0, r, plate ) --toggleVehicleRespawn ( veh, false ) end if ( veh == false ) then outputConsole ( "Failed to create vehicle.", player ) end end end addCommandHandler ( "createvehicle", consoleCreateVehicle ) --toggleVehicleRespawn ( veh, false ) u just need to take the 2 little lines ( -- )out at start of line and then it wont respawn vehicles made with this function. only problem is u need to figure out how broph creates vehicles from the map file. i am not sure if u have to write a function to do it or what. i think that it is done by the server itself but im just guessing as i cant see anything in the scripts that creates vehicles from the map. dont know if this is any help but everything ive done so far has been based around the BROPH resource. u could also try looking at the FR resource. it has a number of freeroam functions in it as well
  12. the reason it cant find the map editor resource is either ( the official one isnt done till DP3 ) or ( the . on the end of map editor ) i only speak english so im not sure if this is the answer u need but looking at your post i think u just need a game for a LAN setup if that is the case u need to type start BROPH in the server for freeroam game or start CDM for calssic death match or CTF for capture the flag or INTERSTATE69 which is deathmatch in cars ( very cool but needs at least 2 players to start ) there are a few other gamemodes as well ( STEALTH / CTV / RACE ) once u have started the resource in the server join the game and type votemode in the console ( F8 for console ) and it will give u a list of maps to choose
  13. i guess the only thing left is to ask lil toady. i lost the info for 3 pcs on my network and he managed to get the info for all three from my ip address. it took a few days but he got there in the end. he will help if u ask nicely
  14. im not very good at scripting so not sure how much help this will be after looking through the BROPH resource i found that it uses a seperate function to respawn vehicles i think if u take the setvehiclerespawnposition and setvehiclerespawndelay out of the first function and then try this function vehicleExplode () setTimer ( respawnVehicle, 2500, 1, source ) end addEventHandler ( "onVehicleExplode", root, vehicleExplode ) i think that will help but like i said im not sure. hope it helps
  15. i think u may be asking the wrong people this forum is for MTA DM try looking here for MTA 0.5 http://forum.mtasa.com/viewforum.php?f=75
  16. im not 100% sure about that the entry in my registry just says Name Type Data --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (Default) REG_SZ C:\Program Files\MTA San Andreas GTA:SA Path REG_SZ C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTA San Andreas Serial REG_SZ i put my Serial number here username REG_SZ i put my username here if the two entries that race has put in are the same or if u can edit them ( not sure if that would work ) then u should be able to put in the username and serial yourself and away you go i am pretty much just guessing here though so im not sure what the results will be
  17. sorry misread the first post a bit. it took 2 days for my new password to come through from MTABETA when i had to recover mine but i did get it in the end. but if it doesnt lil toady is still best person to ask for help. im not sure who runs the MTA BETA site sorry couldnt help much
  18. if u ask lil toady for help he should be able to help u i was in same situation ( lost 3 accounts for pcs on my network ) but lil toady did a check for accounts registered to my ip address and that did the trick. try explaining the situation to him in this thread http://forum.mtasa.com/viewtopic.php?f=89&t=21435 it might take a while because he is very busy but im sure he can help u out
  19. if u can remeber details for your account just go to MTA BETA.com login and look at your profile to get serial number then run MTA DM Install choose not to create account let the install run and then use regedit to put username and serial into the registry. once u have run the install without making an account it will put the GTA entries in the registry so u know where to put username and serial i think there is also a way to have account details sent to your E-MAIL from MTA BETA.com but not 100% about that
  20. if u made the map with MTA RACE map editor you need to convert it to MTA DM first here is a link http://gtamap.delux-host.com/ once u have converted it you need to add it to a resource the best resource i have found for testing is BROPH if u look in MTA server install directory\mods\deathmatch\resources u will find a load of zip files find BROPH and extract it then replace the map file with yours and rename yours to broph.map ( or keep original name and change the map that is loaded in META.xml file ) the converter only does objects at the moment though so u have to put vehicles , checkpoints , and pickups in by yourself there is another map editor on MTA resources page but some people ( including myself ) have had problems getting it running but it is a very good map editor when it works hope that helps a bit
  21. i am running the game and a LAN server on my system with no problems Intel Celeron 2.4Ghz / 1.0Gb ram / GeForce 5900ultra 128Mb it should fly on a sempron of any kind really
  22. do u get any errors when u click next on the screen pictured by the looks of it you have already registered with MTA BETA.com but i have seen people have problems with the serial number not being put in registry properly. have u ever run MTA DM before and uninstalled it if u know details for account on MTA BETA.com best bet is to go there login and get your mta serial number from your profile and then check in system registry to make sure the one there is the same if on windows XP just click start and then run type regedit and click ok open My Computer\ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Multi Theft Auto:San Andreas and u should have 4 entries 1 : (default) 2 : GTA:SA Path 3 : Serial ( check serial number against one on MTA BETA.com profile ) 4 : username ( check against MTA BETA.com ) if username and serial are missing then right click right side screen and create new STRING VALUE ( u need 2 of these ) then right click and modify first string ( VALUE NAME is "username" without the quotes and VALUE DATA is the username u registered wih MTA BETA.com ) then right click and modify second STRING VALUE ( VALUE NAME is "serial" without the quotes and VALUE DATA is the serial number from MTA BETA.com ) you should then be able to run install and choose existing account
  23. have a look here my friend should have everything u need http://forum.mtasa.com/viewtopic.php?f=89&t=21435
  24. thanks tma. i will try that now EDIT ::: awesome tma works perfectly. thank u so much
  25. i have got a script that activates the sam site at area 69 and fires at players using createObject and moveObject. i want to make the objects that it fires at player move a bit more randomly so that it doesnt allways hit the player. my player spawn function uses randInt to choose what skin player will have when he spawns as i only wanted a few of the skins but when i try to use it for my sam site in the same way i get a bad argument. the script im trying to use it in is client side so im not sure if thats the problem ( error is attempt to call randInt a nil value. here is the script client side function area69samsitefire ( player, matchingDimension ) detection = isElementWithinColShape ( getLocalPlayer(), area69samsphere ) if detection == true then if ( getTickCount () > previousTick + area69samfiredelay ) then local px,py,pz = getElementPosition ( getLocalPlayer() ) local glow1 = createMarker ( 353, 2030, 30, "corona", 5, 255, 0, 0, 150 ) local shot1 = createObject ( 3106, 353, 2030, 30 ) local rand = randInt ( 1,5 ) attachElementToElement ( glow1, shot1, 0, 0, 0 ) setTimer ( moveObject, 50, 1, shot1, 500, px + rand, py + rand, pz + rand ) setTimer ( destroyElement, 570, 1, shot1 ) setTimer ( destroyElement, 570, 1, glow1 ) previousTick = getTickCount() end end end i have tried setting the randInt in a few different ways but always the same error tried like this as this is how my player spawn skin randomizer works local offz = { 2, 3, 4, 5 } local rand = randInt ( 1, #offz ) also tried this which i saw in another script setTimer ( moveObject, 50, 1, shot1, px+randInt(1,5), py+randInt(1,5), pz+randInt(1,5) ) but no matter what all of them give me attempt to call randInt a nil value. i know its probably something simple but i just cant see it any advice appreciated thanx all
