  1. Same as it Ever Was, Keep up the Good Work Once I catch the DM Patch on Site news, I'll be calling some guys to peep some servers with me
  2. Pic0o

    SHOW US YOUR PC

    I just took some Recent Pc Shots. Amd XP 2600+ @ 175 FSB 1GB Corsair 3200 Leadtek 6800LE w/ Unlocked +8 Pipelines Asus A7n8x Single Danger Den Maze3 Block on my CPU OCAU Entry
  3. It's like when your're in the Car on a Road Trip that takes 5 hours, and 3 hours in, you ask the Driver / Passenger when you'll be there. I Guess there is comfort in redundancy Lookin forward to Open Beta Testing, Like every other release of MTA, all other games fall off the map round that Season
  4. Turf Wars type play would be sweet. If the Style is like Gangsters 2, and possibly did a Dominant Color on your map, that'd be the Bomb Shiz
  5. home servers with less than 25mbps of dedicated bandwidth = kaput Thanks for Getting the Point, and setting the Bar. More testing / Time before I dog my Friends Dedi Box w/ IRC Scripts and excess Cycles.
  6. Very Nice. Once I get home, I'll update my Server Config, and Drop you a line if still looking for some Stat Track assistants. Heading out of town on Monday, so the Dedi home Server should be pretty decent, as my GF does not DL much these days
  7. While the extra layer of anti-cheating is nice, I think the least attractive / Effective method is this Blurb of verifying Peoples XP Keys. Here is why (Some Already Mentioned): A. Not many people are Cool with thier Os Key being Scanned and Sent to someone else's Server. B. Said server, may gather a Large list of XP or other OS Keys (and that's silly, also prolly Warez land) C. Many Warez copies of XP Float around, thus aqs mentioned, Tommy Mods getting banned, also takes out all of your friends in Georgia Like Ae said, if there is going to be an Email Authen setup for Playing MTA, I could easiely see it blowing new Players off, Email servers being overused and exploited (Hi Signup Bot), and prolly a few other layers of discomfort. Keep in mind while locking down modders is nice, you need to lookout for the End user connecting to your Server too, as they don't want to jump thru loops to get a Few Frags in. The MAC Addy ban sounds best so far. As mentioned, yes, people can spoof thier MAC, but how many modders will Know how to do so / go thru the hassle of doing so, just to be a modding whore? For that rare case, I'd just ban the subnet for a night or 2. Good Luck on the Anti-Cheat Magic, just keep the Players in mind, and try to respect thier registry as much as possible.
  8. Sync = More Fun. Less Variables for people to Cry about, and you could accurately Aim for peoples heads, and in Theory, kill them w/ Dome shots. I Don't Recal if the Characters in MTA are Point Sensitive (Head Shot = More Dmg then Foot Shot) but having more Sync is always Fun. It's kinda like asking would you rather have a 10 Person LAN, or 10 people playing off a Dedicated 128k Cable Server, IMO. Sync Powa
  9. I Switched a few sites from phpbb to Ibp and never looked back. The Sub-Forum ability and user management won me over. Also, since the whole wave of phpbb exploitation that went down a few weeks ago, that was another reason to stick with what I have as Ipb Boards And Yes, the new Pay to use, does Suck.
  10. Edit Post Works Well, as does the Gans Forum. I Missed your Revolution, Sorry.

    SUGGESTION

    Port Blocked? Webserver From Home?
  12. For All the 'Omgz, The Coders Cheat' Folks, Please quit trying to crawl up People's Booty Holes for a Better View. Of Course a Coder is going to Expose more stuff then a Base end User. Anywho, Point being, don't Cry Cheat, sometimes, Glitches are called Development. Know you Place, Give some Props where they are due for the Current and Future state of MTA, and have a Peachy Holiday.

    MTA:VC crashing

    Guess I'm one of the Few, since I have yet to Crash to Desktop. (Excluding Car Bomb Exploits @ Partyserver)
  14. Coldstone Also made a Very nice Modpack, Car and such Equiped, Super Easy to Install. Just click the Link in my Sig to Peep the Review.
  15. Be Sure to Pimp Hover Cars in Blue and more X-mas night before Sleep Spam I Miss the Golf Club and Cart in Stunt
