  3. [TUT] Setting up MTA server on Ubuntu Server 12.04.1 LTS

    That would start the mta server twice: it is started automatically on boot by Ubuntu (it's an Upstart job). Using that command will start it a second time (or fail). What you should do, however, is create a shell script in the mtasa directory that runs those commands, and then update the upstart job to point to the new shell script.
  4. [TUT] Setting up MTA server on Ubuntu Server 12.04.1 LTS

    I'm not using screen here, I use service mtasa stop/start to start/stop the MTA server. It's my personal preference. To set that up, you would want to set up a shell script to run the screen command to start the MTA server, and modify the upstart job to point to the new shell script.
  5. MTA Ban system

    How about instead of asking for a global ban list, you learn how to properly administrate your server? The reason MOJRM/whoever you have a hard-on for is able to keep coming back isn't because they have godly skills, it's because you don't know how to use the admin panel.
  6. I have written a detailed set of instructions for setting up a basic MTA server on Ubuntu Server 12.04.1 LTS, both 32 and 64 bit. Click here to access the tutorial. Please PM if you have any issues or notice that there is something I need to update. Hope this helps!

  8. Comedy called "multi theft auto"

    The MTA serial system is very reliable and can't be changed easily, unless you switch computers. An account system, on the other hand, would be easy to work around (just register a new account). As far as people claiming that "oh my brother played on my PC and got banned and now I can't play", 99% of the time they are lying. I speak from experience. I agree with in regards to theft prevention within the actual software, and heavier moderation on the community page. Once you start scanning servers / removing server from the browser, you've gone to far. One of MTA's greatest strengths is the openness of the platform, and any attempt to protect content creators needs to keep that in mind. This is like the SOPA/PIPA debate, but on a much smaller scale. Well, people suck. Put a bunch of kids behind a monitor and give them anonymity and you'll always see stuff like that. It''s normal and to be expected. If there aren't any admins on the server and votekick doesn't help, then move on to a different server.
  9. Comedy called "multi theft auto"

    It sucks to hear that your stuff got stolen, but in reality, there isn't much the Team can (or should) do about stolen resources. - No server should be banned remotely. Such moderation tactics are always subject to abuse and controversy, and are typically more trouble to implement & moderate than they are worth. However, a server 'verification' system would be a good idea, where servers can apply for a verification to protect their name in the server browser. That said, there should never be a 'verified' tab, verified servers should just get a discrete checkmark next to their name or something. Also, servers already have unique IDs assigned to them, but its only used internally. - Global accounts are not necessary, that is what client serials are for. - Client-side scripts are protected from theft already, look up the new protected flag that ryden added a while ago. The place where the MTA Team could (and should) try to hammer away at these issues is on the community center. A proper flagging system and a stricter set of guidelines would do a lot of good there (such as not allowing resources containing compiled scripts or obvious luac output). I really can't comment on player behavior, since I really haven't seen anything that bad. On the whole, I feel like MTA has a more sophisticated player base than, say, Xbox live. Or maybe I just don't hang out on the bad servers enough.
  10. dxDraw

    local screenWidth, screenHeight = guiGetScreenSize() local function renderRectangle() if getKeyState("m") then dxDrawRectangle(screenWidth * 0.7, screenHeight * 0.5, screenWidth * 0.15, screenHeight * 0.5, tocolor(0,0,0,100), false) end end addEventHandler("onClientRender", root, renderRectangle) I based the relative values off of a resolution of 1920x1080, you might need to re-adjust them.
