  1. Back in 2008 Hi, I was active on here back in 2008, I released a BetterWeather script, and was working privately on some scripts with the intention of developing my own server gamemode, with what I thought had a Unique Selling Point alongside the usual features that you'd probably find elsewhere. Sadly, real life got in the way and those other scripts never saw the light of day. The aim was to make a realistic RP server, with all the scripts remaining private. It was my intention to do it all myself, without any other 3rd party resources, and not make them public. But that was foolish,

But my son is now a bit older, and likes exploring driving around in GTASA or GTAIV, but I'm not really keen on him playing them due to the the chances of violence and bad language in the game.

    Hello again

    It's been ages since I was even relatively active with MTASA, before it became open source, but recently accepted a Facebook friend request from someone I used to speak to on here, and it got me wondering how things are these days. Is MTASA now an active, thriving community? did anyone ever come up with an awesome complex scripted RPG server that didn't require "meta gaming" rules to keep people in check? Reminiscing about the RPG server idea I started to develop, but can't find most of the notes I wrote, and a HD crash no doubt means I have none of the original code either, not that it'd p
  4. As much as I admire your enthusiasm, but the way things are going, without any real desire to learn about how to add the features you want (Scripting is how you do it, but you need to LEARN!) your server is going to become just another bog standard RP server, with hardly any users and nothing new to offer anyone. You either need to encourage others to work with you to make yours stand out as a better RP server, or why not join an existing set up and try to help them build a better RP server?
  5. that's a local server account, unique to the server you're playing on, rather than your MTA community username. However, not every server is set up to allow that kind of thing, or at least not ervery server has a GUI equivalent of the register/login system, to make it easier for the players.
  6. hey, how about some screenshots of the various functions in action so that people can see how it's coming along with installing it first?
  7. for DP2 support you'd want to have it so that you register an account on the server and then use that as the username? edit: Ace Gambit just edited his post above to say the same thing, in effect. Yes, it requires more work on the server to set up, but it's definitely a good idea.
  8. I WANT A CREDIT AS WELL!!! I SUGGESTED THE PDA! I CAME UP WITH SOME GREAT IDEAS! I NEED RECOGNITION!
  9. that's what I was referring to when I said that it was more likely a problem with the MTA command rather than a db issue.
  10. just tell you on here? So you want us to copy and paste large chunks of stuff from the wiki because you're too damn lazy to look yourself? Your server = EPIC FAIL because it's owner = EPIC FAIL. Sorry sunshine, but round here, you only get rewards when you put in some effort yourself. Otherwise you WILL get shot down in flames. Nobody is going to help you unless you're willing to help yourself. The reason? We're all too busy with life, and our own projects to help people with their every little question that they need answering, when the answers are already available to them somewhere else
  11. blimey, you're not asking for much, are you!
  12. I still don't understand WHY a two table approach won't work. What happens when you try it? what error messages? What sort of problem is occuring etc. Also, GioSerpo: Could you do a mock up of how you tried to use the BetterWeather system originally, so I can see what the problem is and fix it?
  13. and in any case, that's the DB2 SQL Implementation, not SQL Lite
  14. I know, I meant that 160 * 15 seems like a small amount of data to be causing problems! it's more likely that it's a problem with column data length...2400 is quite a bit of text for one column to handle (though I had originally assumed that BLOBs were quite large), as opposed to 15 rows with each holding a column containing 160 characters. just had a quick look, and got found the current implementation of BLOB in SQL Lite, has a max length of 2147483647, so 160*15 should be fine. So maybe it's a problem with the MTA command that reads/writes that data, rather than SQL itself? in this case,
  15. Oh? tell me! I can probably explain why it wasn't exported originally etc
