  1. Hi. After buying and installing a new GPU (AMD RX 580) I can no longer play MTA without it freezing 5 seconds after being in the menu. Some additional info: GTA works if I delete GTA User Files and don't mess with some(?) setting(s), namely disabling framelimiter causes an instant issue where game actually works, but it's frozen in the current frame forever Even if GTA works, mouse click support for it disappears after around a minute of playing. I do wanna note that some strange sound plays like 15 seconds prior to that (if I had to guess I'd say it's amd software center maybe because it had done something? idk) Got MTA to work once with default GTA low settings, but after changing them to higher ones, the freeze issue comes Before I got this GPU, I used integrated graphics in my current CPU, and it had it's own drivers. However, before installing my GPU and it's drivers, I had removed all Intel graphics drivers in Safe Mode with an utility program called Display Driver Uninstaller (from Guru3D), and afterwards I had installed newest graphics drivers from AMD Tried other game to see if it's GPU issue (game: Heroes of Might and Magic III) and it worked fine Tried reinstalling GTA and MTA, did not fix issue apart from reverting it to original settings on which it somewhat works (as specified above) but as soon as I want to change settings to anything humanlike normal, the freeze issue occurs Thanks for reading edit: maybe this is related? edit2: this has been temporarily fixed by reverting to an older driver, seems to be the problem in adrenaline 2020
  2. Hi there! Since this topic was created, I've done a good amount of jobs here and there but after a few months Iwent inactive. With this new message I want to announce that I am back and that if you need scripting services that I can provide them! Feel free to contact me on Discord (ZoeN#4774) or PM me here :)
  3. Well since XP and Vista users are running a separate branch of MTA, their version would probably contain something along xp-vista in version information.
  4. Which key-based encryption to use? I tried looking up AES for Lua, but due to mta "wanting to be safe" it doesn't allow some of the functions which are required for it to work. How exactly do I implement encryption, and then decryption so that clients can decrypt it without them being able to compromise all encrypted files (since they'd know how to decrypt a key)? And what about salting, should I do it, how should I do it... Is there something better than AES which I could use? Should I make a PHP script so that it can return aes-encrypted script to server (to circumvent the issue of lua aes not working on mta)? Edit: what about ?
  5. Hi there. I gotta send script files from server to clients, and I'm not sure what would be the best way to make it secure (encryption, salting, hashing, how it would work, which ones to use, etc.) as at the moment they are being sent in plain text which is obviously insecure. I am sending them over triggerClientEvent function if that is important to this discussion.
  6. Uh, I couldn't find an edit button for my topic so I'll have to mention it here; I've changed my Discord username to ZoeN#4774 so if you're going to contact me over Discord, use this name instead.
  7. I must say, considering what type of multigamemode servers usually come up on this forum (ones with stolen and edited mgm scripts) I've expected that this one would be the same, but I've been so wrong. The server looks amazing, that's some great work, customization kinda reminds me of ER, but overall the design is pretty dope Only thing what I'd change a bit are the nametags, they look somewhat to FFS' one. Good luck with server!
  8. Hello there. I am John Smith, also known as ZoeN. Today, I am here to offer my scripting services. Will they cost money? Yes. How much? I'll talk about it soon in this topic. Some info about me: I am an 18 year old guy from Croatia who has a particular interest in scripting on Multi Theft Auto. I've firstly started off back in 2014, going from simple Hello World scripts, to what I am today. A fully experienced MTA scripter with lots of experience and knowledge on how to do scripts, ranging from smaller projects to even bigger projects such as whole gamemodes and multigamemodes. What can I do? Basically anything. I've already done lots of resources. Examples would be: Custom Race Gamemode Custom Freeroam Gamemode Custom Downloader (both for Freeroam and DM-like gamemodes) Map Loader Script Loader Multigamemode Login Panel Punishment System Userpanel and many more which I haven't mentioned while I favour working on developing new gamemodes, let's be realistic that most customers won't come to me for that; the center of my service are custom requests, which means you can ask me to script (or fix) anything you'd like, after which I will consider it and tell you if it's possible, and if so, suggest a price that can be further negotiated. I will start development, and you can test it out on my testserver before paying, so you can confirm it's in good working state and nothing from your requested features is missing. After the resource/code is sent, there'll be extended support for bugs that may appear after delivery, as I am pretty confident of my code's quality. How much do I charge? It really depends on lot of factors, such as complexity, time needed to do the job, and what you're asking me to do. For instance, smaller scripts would be in range of something like 5-10€, while bigger scripts would be in range of 10-30€, depending on their complexity. Finally, complete gamemodes (written from scratch) would be charged somewhat in this terms: Small Gamemodes -- 50€ Big Gamemodes -- 100€+ (for big gamemodes, that is a minimum price, however it may change to a higher one depending on what you're requesting, also based on complexity and time needed to complete the gamemode) Why are complete gamemodes so expensive? Well, because especially gamemodes takes some time, if not even a long time. Then, there's also the fact that the scripts which I'm creating are profesionally written and optimized, they're not amateur. Think of it as getting a tattoo on your body. You'd want the tattoo to be good and to still be fine even after years have passed right? You certainly don't want your tattoo to be made by an amateur and to have your tattoo fade away under 6 months. Any examples of my work? To be honest here, I haven't really made any public resources as I've always preferred to create private scripts (usually for my server(s)). I just have 1 public resource out there; To give you a sense of my code, let me quickly share the core of that resource (open spoiler); However, I did make a video about one project of mine, 3 years ago. You may also notice that there's a Level System and HUD, both developed by me, also 3 years ago. I was pretty good at scripting even back then, but at the current moment, I'm a beast How can you contact me? Discord: ZoeN#4774 Private Message on this Forum Thank you for reading. If you have any questions regarding me and/or my services, contact me, and I'll reply to you as soon as I can. - John Smith (aka ZoeN)
  9. That means that the server you're trying to visit has specifically disabled ability to join it with Wine. Best thing what you can do here is to talk to the server owner(s) about it. For more reference to this SD #28 thing, you can take a look here:
  10. Thank you man for replies. Didn't even know how these formats performed before. It's just making me sad that my designs can't be loaded correctly and scaled, they are very simple shapes made in Photoshop and they can be done in literally 30 seconds so there's no complexity in it whatsoever. The solutions of different formats such as dds with compressions like dxt5 are very useful and I'll take a good look on using them for images that don't require too much quality and images that would fit the power of two type of dimensions, however this one would look weird with power of two so I'll just look at the format how it operates but it won't fix my issue due to it needed power of two dimensions and not using them will lead to blurring i suppose? I've been scripting from 2013 and honestly I haven't seen such an issue like mine at any time. Could this be a bug in MTA's DirectX? I could give you a simple resource for reproducing this with my exact image if you'd like, I don't know would that help any of this because frankly I have 0 ideas why this is happening in first place and all I know is that images are definitely good, and even when i zoom them in right to the pixels the program which is zooming them doesn't have any distortions and shows the image correctly, unlike MTA.
  11. Thank you that has solved it. However, what about images which have more colors? For instance, I can reproduce same issue I had with a rectangle which has glowing effect in a different color (when it's not PNG-8). However PNG-8 has 256 color limit, plus I need to convert all of them to that format which is a bit time wasting and reduces quality (of some) elements Why does this occur anyway? Does the color mode (8 bit, 16 bit, 32 bit) affect this? I've just noticed that all of those images were made in 8-bit Color Mode with Photoshop, haven't noticed that before, it must be the default setting or something, I'm guessing that if i rework the images in 16 bit color mode or in 32 bit color mode that this issue should go away? Edit: tried 32 bit color mode, still appears with black bordes when scaled...
  12. Hello. I've run into an issue where I'm having a big white button image and when i draw it smaller than it's original dimensions, it gets black borders. On these links below you can notice difference where first link is picture drawn in original image dimensions while second link is same width of image but with reduced height. original - scaled down - Now i do understand that when bigger images get scaled unproperly that it can lead to stretching and those sorts of problems but this image is 99.9% white pixels with just a little bit of white-ish bits on left and right side where button is being rounded (made circular) I've also attempted to scale the image properly, by just using width / 2, height / 2 of original image dimensions, so that it's scaled down correctly, but the issue always happens when image gets scaled down, it gets these annoying black borders. I'm wondering, is that normal thing to happen or it shouldn't happen? Because the image is 99.9% white, I'm gonna show you below how it looks like in pixels when fully zoomed in I hope you understood my words in this topic, as I've rushed them a bit. Thanks for reading. Edit: tried making the image even smaller, same thing happens, unless i do it in exactly the same dimensions which are needed in game, but if i wanna scale it, then rip
  13. Hey, thanks but onClientElementStreamIn doesn't work on world objects, I've just tested it. Dunno what else there is to do, should I just make a feature request on bugtracker?
