  1. Shoot, read this tread and get all hyped up and be like "yeah, I get to explain this" and then Bcrt2000 explains it, heh. But yeah, this is one of my thoughts as Vice City draws near to the PC. Someone told me it was going to be Multiplayer, which I highly doubt (stupid rumors). But since Vice City is basically Liberty City was added features, same game engine and code, I read somewhere the car data files were edited with one of the public mod programs. So if we get lucky, they left the scrapped multiplayer code in the game like Liberty City, and the MTA guys rework the mta program to work
  2. Lag is a very interesting thing, and make sure you remember the full force of lag itself. Now yes, it would not suprise me if MTA did not work with a 56k, 56k is old new (old news I still have), but you also get to add in other factors. Lag is not always generated by the thing you are trying to access, like the Host Server for MTA. Just because you're signal is slow doesn't mean its the server, since that signal must past X number of servers to reach its desination. So if you signal must travel past 19 network servers to reach the MTA Host, if a fat lady sits on Server 12 squeezing that pa
  3. Ok, well first of all I am going to state for the fact I didn't say lets me a MMORPG or whatever that term you people are using. I am a writer and a roleplayer, and I can see the logic in roleplaying with GTA, but to make an online game out of it.....I mean I run an Online Text RPG, but RPG and GTA do not mix. If people wish to do so, hey, more power to ya. Basically the only thing I'd want to see "RP" like, would be lots and lots of player created gangs. As I said, I like roleplaying, but the whole idea of a Liberty City Online was the pure fact it would be nothing but total chaos, expl
  4. Ok, I really didn't want to take up the space of another thread to ask a simple question, and I hate to sound like a newbie, but how do you take screen pics of games, and or movies. I've tried Fraps, and it doesn't want to work right. Last time I was taking screen pictures was on my P2 266 Packard Bell with games like Duke Nukem and Samerai Showdown, which was simple print screen. Only last year I finally upgraded to a nice modern 1.4 gigahertz system, and just in time for GTA for PC. And as for the two Multiplayer Mods. I don't see the need for slitting of throats and name bashing, whi
  5. Well, I will state right off I keep saying "This isn't for the MTA Guys", the only involvement they would have is the development of MTA itself. I'm talking me, myself and I, and anyone else who could possibly be interested in developing such a thing. I'm very curious now how much bandwidth the MTA uses, compared to everything else. I'm not talking about setting up some sparking smoking server in my closet hooked up to a 14.4k modem, I'm talking about a professional server hooked up to commerical T1 and T3 lines. I don't know, everyone seems so concern over the bandwidth, which a ser
  6. MMORPGs, which basically is another name for those evil and stupid games like Everkrak, and Ultima Online, etc. MUDs or Multi-User-Dungeons are totally texted based, played through client programs designed for its game play. As for server power, it would be 1 or possibly 2 GTAs running on a server, probably only one though. And as for the network, well, MTA says you can have 2 to 30 people at a time multiplaying, so I mean if a server cannot handle 30 people playing, then the idea doesn't work. A super computer would only be needed if you created a massive online enviroment where hundred
  7. But there are ways of keeping the Evil Faceless Corperations from grabbing onto this system. MUDs are copyrighted so they can be ran, but cannot generate money for the owner. I've ran one for 5 years, 35 bucks a month, a profit of -2100. Somewhat small change, but still. The idea of it is based on using the work of MTA, but it would not generate money. It could be kept a free thing with the right copyrighting. Of course per say this became popular, Rockstar would probably buy everyone out, which could be refused, but I don't know, I'd probably take the money since we all gotta make a l
  8. Now here is food for mind, now this isn't a suggestion for the next upgrade, but a thought of an outcome. I've been in the gaming business in one sort or another, basically on the opposite end of the spectrum the MTA Team is at, I've ran a text based MUD for 5 years, good amount of crowd. I'm sure MUDs are probably a joke to most video gamers. But that is totally besides the point of this thread. Now as it is, basically a friend "hosts" a game, and other friends link up, and play. But what about setting it up so people would per say connect to an always running GTA3 Server. Basically a
  9. Ok, well I don't want to sound like a hill billy who knows nothing about computers, which is what I feel my first and previous post sounded like. After further investigation, I saw the matrix. Anyone who is attempted to use this mod, when hitting ALT-F12, make sure you are connected, make sure your "version" on the MTA is correct, ane make sure one person is server, one person is host. The Error 40006 is basically the MTA blowing its brains out from an error, which at least to my knowledge is typically fixed with an error message that doesn't crash the system. As for the 40020 error, that'
  10. Got the 40006 bug, this is the first time I've tried and used the Multi Theft Auto, gotta say Satan Blesses you all. I always had the idea of multiplayer GTA3, since Rockstar said they were going to do it, and never did, didn't know there was fragments left in the GTA3 code for it too. Always been a dream to see Liberty City with 100 different people running around, randomly killing.
