i cant blame em im sure thousands opened the client and he could be getting payed for the hits so why not make cash of it?

how do we know this is a feature he did not feel to enable just yet? maybe something that would show news about updates and stuff.

spyware or not im still going to try the client been waiting to long for such a little thing to stop me from checking out something new.

BTW you have a better chance at finding worse stuff just browsing porn and i know for a fact a lot of you do! :P

for those with an unhacked client. If you click on the gtat.org tab you will see this tab emerging as well. Now what does this mean? It means that the adware doesn't activate untl you click on the gtat.org tab.

Altough this does off course not mean that the tab isn't loading, it does mean that he didn't do it in secret or that he made a coding error

Whether it's purposely hidden, a coding error, or was meant to be opened and loaded only when you hit the "gtat.org" tab, I really don't see a point to this... it doesn't affect you or the gameplay, and it helps DracoBlue keep the site up (last I heard).

I've personally played the latest release on a server with a few people, and it was pretty good. Although I have no idea how and why that website was incorporated into the program, I'll continue support GTAT as long as he doesn't turn to spyware... the adware, I don't really care about - if it was really intended, then probably had it hidden it from view so it doesn't disrupt you. If it's accessable in the client, one way or another, then there's no doubt in my mind that he had no problem with anyone knowing about it, even without opening a resource editor.

copy from the gtat thread

ok then i guess i outa publicly appologize. i saw the adware and fliped out, i never clicked on the actual gtat.org tab and noticed the tab appeared ;P

p.s. yes i did know that it appeared about 2 hours ago, but it seems to only appear for some people. popup blocker perhaps?

This window is hidden because it's very shitty

to see everyday a pop up. This pop-up gives

Draco the money to pay the Calculation for the Domain

and the Traffic. It's not built into the PROGRAM GTAt,

its in the Website... Please understand that GTAt don't

win any money with this Action.

Too it's only a LAN Beta Version to check the bugs...

Thats not the final 0.5!

Thank You,

Lets make a quick brainstorm .

MTA Seems MUCh larger than gtat . with the website and community .

2 url's including payid dedicated server . And guess what ... you wont find 1 ad on their website (wojjie.net is not an ad) no money is beeing made from this . And they still continue it

just a lil hint: spy/adware is something completely different than a normal ad(!)

If you'd prefer it, say Draco he should make a visible popup, which always pop up when you start the program.

And don't complain - if you don't want to play it - then don't play it.

I didn't play this LAN version, but the Internet version and it worked very well.

Proverb: Don't look into the muzzle of a given donkey.

I believe the "Browser" tab was implemented so you could open the forums in another tab (If you click the Forum link, that is what happens), but it is kind of weird that this could be exploited (Whether intentionally, I don't know) by the popup.

DracoBlue's financial trouble is his own problem. If he is doing this intentionally, then it is rather low that he would force players indirectly to contribute to his wallet just so he can afford to keep his website running. I have never seen any other mod project do this before.

Draco has dug his own ditch, and he is forcing us to help him climb out of it.

People have posted about how Draco has broken the trust by adding stuff to his mod. I have also seen some ppl post that it was a visible add and Deathb has apologized in the GTAT forum.

Honestly,

I don't care about any of that I think he broke the "trust" because he has been boasting about something that he has yet to deliver all these months later. If he said there was spyware in it or if MTA added it I would still play.

I do appreciate MTAs honesty but I knew they were honest to begin with. The question for me isn't why Draco broke your trust it is why did you trust him?

The real victims here are those ppl who get mad at MTA and want to lash out. Every crybaby since I have been on here has threatened to go to GTAT or convert thier gang to GTAT or donate to GTAT.... blah blah blah...

What are they gonna say now?

Poor guys.... :cry:

He should at least tell people that there is a hidden add . and that it will not affect their computer . And btw , how do you think the mta team gets money to pay for server , website and development tool?

I think that MTA gets the webserver free, hence the ads at the top of the page.

this might clear it up

If you are interested how abouts I ended up hosting MTA, it all started with Cray. I have known him for quite some time, and heard he got involved with this project. He started getting involved in MTA just after Wojjie Networks got its first Dual server. Anyways, when the site got flooded with hits and downloads of the first MTA version ( I think it was the first version ), they started getting into problems with bandwidth usage being as high as it was. That is where I stepped in and offered to host them.

I believe MTA will continue to grow and I will do my best to be there.

Good work guys!

we are fortunate not to have to pay for any webhosting at this point... except for multitheftauto.com (which isn't used for much other than running the ircd.

And this is why draco has to pay his huge bill. He doesn't get free webhosting and he has a POP-UP. Also, THE AD IS NOT BUILT IN TO GTAT. If you click on GtaT.org tab, the browser window pops up (because it is a pop-up on the site). GtaT HAS NO ADWARE. GET IT RIGHT PEOPLE.
