    i am bored. Well...we'll see (goes back into hibernation)
  2. first...its really coincedence that i am here on the forum right now..its rather coincedence because MTA seems rather dead at the moment. (Or is it just my "not having time to play" ?) Anyway....i see it like that "people" did things after 0.3..eg changing the spawns and making things harder eg. for robbers. Without asking many of the people actually playing these times..i remember what great times i had at the old robber house/spawn... Then i heard "people" (programmers, admins) publically speaking ut AGAINST spawn wars and how dumb spawn wars are IN THEIR OPINION - and thus making the mistake to force players to play after their rules and make changes instead of co-working with players. There were a lot of people having fun at the old spawns.... spawn wars etc....locations were good in my opinion.....all this has gone downhill..now in the latest version the stubby seems like a BB gun....the last times i played i didnt even HIT anyone, it felt like they were lagging but they were not. Its kind of weird if you shoot someone head on for MANY times, someone who pings in the 50s...and NOTHING happens. dont know what else to say...i really hardly have time to play MTA...and yes, i am also waiting for new versions
  3. yes. it was good. It was fun. Servers were great. Cool people online.
  4. GREAT version !! Its actually playable, MUCH smoother, and 99% less crashes than i had before ! Just wish we had better spwans, i still dont like phil's place as robber spawn....but game itself is MUCH better/playable than 0.41...

    MTA Error Report Tool

    29 actually, number 2 in the rankings, "jani" is #1 with 43 reports.eAi hey...#2....and i did only play a few hours or so yesterday...now you probably understand my crankiness is there any valuable information in the reports ? Edit: i had quite a few where i didnt see the ERT-box waiting for my "ok"...and it just came up with the browser and i submitted without a comment. I dont know whether these actually created reports or were just skipped. Btw. if you have any list of te information etc. would ike to see it. As it looks...my changing the gfx-drivers and turning off certain driver options did NOT prevent me from crashing (as i assumed a week ago or so)..actually i even had more crashes yesterday than usual. (Which is/was 'good' since i wanted it to crash for the ERT). I am kinda on wit's end what it could be. Btw. does the ERT also report gtvc-settings, eg graphics and sound-settings etc. ? Edit2" I very much appreciate your efforts and everything...i was quiet surprised getting an email by mrbump replying to one of my ERT-comments...which makes me think you guys actually really care about your program and want to resolve any issues.
  6. NOONE is playing GTA3 anyway - why are you developing for it ?

    MTA Error Report Tool

    i submitted 20 or so i had in the last 1 or 2 hours...just to let you know
  8. i used to..now i curse at every person online with a ping higher than 150...its totally unplayable.
  9. literally ! >>> if it IS driver/settings related, then why isn't there any difference for me when i change settings or drivers? still the same crashes once in a long while (never had much anyway) >>> if it only would be "once in a while" i would NOT complain...very well aware that MTA is still in beta, and free and everything. But i got crashes like 8 out of 10 deaths/respawns.... I played on friday for 2 hours or so and only crashed ONCE..usually i would have crashed already 30 or 40, maybe more times in that time. It must have to do with the driver settings (esp. fastwrites)...anyway i was on a smaler server (offcial #1 i think)...and probably needs more testing on a bigger server....but i was just amazed to die and respawn for 2 hours straight and not have any crashes/freezes. (This was, as said, after i replaced my ATI drivers with the Omega drivers and turned off fastwrites, as he suggests.) The weird thing is..i do not have ANY, ANY issues with any other game on my PC
  10. hi, i just wanted to say that i changed my graphics drivers (ATI 9800 Pro) and i was trying the Omega drivers and also switched off the fast-write option - and i dont crash anymore !!! (Or only had one crash in 2 hours or so) It seems that 0.41 is more sensitive than 0.3..anyway...its ATI driverr/settings related ! cya
  11. gametypes - who gives a XXX i think it would be nice if we have new characters, customizable characters with new skins. More to chose from, more classes, occupations and also weapons. This alone would give a huge boost for the whole game becasue every char can be different. AND: configurable spawns. Move the spawn point for (eg.) robber ANYWHERE on the map. I hate being forced at certain spawns. and....FINALLY..JUST get rid of al the glitches and bugs and stuff not synced and weapons hitting the target is merely random...it should be game where the best skills give you an advantage and not like a LOTTERY game..eg. shooting someone with m60 for hours and nothing happens etc... Add/Edit: SYNC, SYNC, SYNC *everything* There's no point in stuff happening only on the local computer (I think bandwith shouldnt be an issue)
  12. before we're talking about 'extended games' like CTF, weapons, vehicles etc...r.. - i think its very important that some basic ESSENTIAL things would be available (as mods ?)....in my opinion character selection/skins...so FINALLY, FINALLY people should be able to create their own characters. - configurable SPAWNS. There should be a way to set spawn points for certain classes. (Proably on server side...eg. if you log in as robber you will always spawn at XXX and not at YYY because YYY sucks...etc. ) All other mods..well let your imagination play...the possibilites are endless...i dont even know where to start...
  13. a positive post by me, for a change Yeah..it looks good. If it is only half as good as you all say..well..then it will be GOOD - Just a question..how does that work with the moddability ? How do you prevent someone running cheat/mods/weapon mods etc. which give one player an advantage (the one who got the mod) - and the others dont (because they dont have this mod) ? - the full moddabilty (hmm..is that even a real word ? ...would that also mean something like a 'character creation' mod would be possible....where someone COULD write an add-on which allows the creation of custom characters which then are also FULLY synced/available/visible for everyone on a server ? (means: Modding...yay...but does this mean everything modded is also synced ???) - Did you (or anyone else) already plan/design/think about doing... some add-ons/mods...independently from the core eg. like a 'character/car/etc/etc'-mod which then could be included in the 'Blue' by default ? cya Edit: just read the other thread...which explained some of my questions already
  14. i cant alt-tab since the game is totally frozen. the only way to exit/restart the game is pressing escape.
  15. hi, i THINK the crashes are somewhat reduced, but i still crash. Before maybe 8 in 10..now 3 or 4 in 10. Also, seems crashes get more/worse the longer i play. Anyway...just to let you know.
  16. hi, it doesnt matter for me, waiting or not. Sometimes i wait LONG and i still crash 8 out of 10 spawns. Will try playing later with my disabled services
  17. hi, i think i am on to something... I disabled a LOT of services on my XP Pro because i was looking for ways to save memory. I used google and looked up which services i can disable and which are needed... Anyway i tried to play VC and logged in about 20 or 30 times 9as robber AND DID NOT CRASH !!!! I will try again tonight, but i couldnt get MTA to crash. I suspect that one of the services i disabled , especially the two ATI services "hotkey poller" and "smartgart" might be responsible, but i dont know...could also be another service. I will try to put up a list of all disabled services, but until then just google the service names and look them up if they are *really* needed or not Edit: I also used msconfig (the configuration tool) and cleared the checkmarks for many services i found i dont need so they dot even load. (As far as i understand) Edit2: Doube check for this: Are people with ATI cards (and the two ATI services running) the onescrashing, and the people wit Nvidia cards are NOT ? Would be interesting to know... If you crash a lot.just post what brand gfx card you have. If you dont....post too...maybe we see a pattern
  18. hi, no error-msg box whatsoever for me. Usually the game just freezes. About 85% of each respawn for me. I have a PC w/ 384MB ram, Windows XP, Service Pack1 with latest updates (but no service pack 2) and a radeon 9800 Pro graphicscard with the latest drivers. I use original gtavc 1.1 and the no-cd patch. In game i have frame limiter off, draw distance at highest. I usually have the latest Winamp runnig in the background while i am playing. Anyway next time i will see *if* there is some message, but iam quite sure there is no message box, just he freezes and quit to desktop.
  19. whow..someone agrees with me that 'they' (MTA team) killed the robber Question: To take away a feature (ie. game character) by making it unplayable....do you think this is a) Good b) Bad ? You decide.... Also..you're wonderig why there are many people at the rober spawn and call it ANNOYING ? Fascinating...you are 'annoyed' by how other people prefer to play the game ? If people prefer to spawn as robber and prefer using stubby and the occasional robber spawn war (how many HOURS of fun did i already have playing with some highly experienced players at the robber(house) spawn....it shouldnt be hard to see that some of these people still cling to it and still log-in as robber in search of the good old times (robber war)..and THATS why there are usually always a bunch of people at the rober spawn. The fact that these robber wars (which were fun once) are pointless NOW (as is the whole robber character) is another story. Ironically - according to your words the robber now can only be used by glitchers. (This might be TRUE - i just expereince how hard it is as robber NOW). But wouldnt that mean that BEFORE (0.3) also other players could use the robber/stubby (and not ONLY the glitchers ???) Then...why did they change the robber/spawn/stubby animations etc. IN THE FIRST PLACE ?????? Was it really so overpowered ???????
  20. if nobody complains - then how can they improve ? I know it was better already regarding crashes (0.3) - so why should it be worse with 0.41 ? And since i like this game i think its legitimate to voice my disappointment - (usually turns to anger on the weekend after palying a while because these crashes really pull on my nerves....)
  21. the problem is, if i write something negative MrBump get mad But..honestly..calling 0.41 'stable' is the best joke i read in about two years My PC is quite in shape and up-top date...and i am playing with the same configuration i played 0.3. If some people say 'less' crashes than 0.3 i seriously would like to know whats different on their computers and mine. Needless to say that i dont have problems with anything else on this PC.
  22. 0.4.1 crashes SO MUCH MORE than 0.4 i was really happy with 0.4 it ran fine did everything smoothly, the mod was great! then 0.4.1 came out, thought i'd see whats changed. seems every 5 minutes (give or take a minute) it crashes. i haven't been able to get more than 7 min of gameplay in before i'm back on my desktop. i'm used to MTA crashing every 45 min or hour, but this is just unplayable. ... WHOW !!! Thank you Maybe they 'believe' us now since it looks i am not the only one. 04.1 rashes about 10x more than 0.3 ever did. Its abolutely horrible. Edit: Most crashes right after spawn, PROBABLY robber most affected, but i crash with ANY spawn...its not only the robber. Then..if you are over that abrreir there is always a chance i crash in the first 20 seconds or so after spawning, after the game started. Since i usually ENJOY spawnwars and similiar i THINK i never was long enough in game ALIVE to know whether you crash after an hour. I usually crashed already 10 times by respwaning 'til an hour is over...maybe your crashes are a bit different. I might also note that my pings are unusally low (almost always lowest ping on server)...and already start to think it has something to do with it....something is not synced ...netcode...etc..which gives me more crashes than other people because its more sensitive to 'low pings'....or maybe this soudns totally retarded....anyway i have no clue...except that it crashes a lot
