  1. Strange, I was looking in that file bout couldn't find the http://mtaster.mtasa.com/ link, are you sure it was from this file? After viewing the link, I believe this is what I'm looking for, but I can't seem to find where they did it in the MTA source. Well if you look at the top of the file "CVersionUpdater.Util.cpp" you see #define UPDATER_MASTER_URL1 "http://updatesa.mtasa.com/sa/master/?v=%VERSION%&id=%ID%" #define UPDATER_MASTER_URL2 "http://updatesa.multitheftauto.com/sa/master/?v=%VERSION%&id=%ID%" These are called master files and are being loaded into the programs memory. They contain the links I gave you above to the master-server lists. Oh and you're welcome by the way.
  2. This file might be interesting: https://github.com/multitheftauto/mtasa ... r.Util.hpp If you look through it you'll find this: http://master.mtasa.com/ase/mta/?v=%VERSION%&id=%ID% And this: http://ase.aventine.modpro.be/ase2.dat?v=%VERSION%&id=%ID% Looks like that's where they get the server-list data (master server list). Now it's up to you to figure out how to parse it. This might help with the parsing: https://github.com/multitheftauto/mtasa-blue/blob/3bd948ed6efb02b09a7633819de50193bc2d21be/Shared/sdk/SharedUtil.Buffer.h
  3. I agree with everything you just said, if it's true that he's been spending all his time stealing and copying then I agree that you should encourage him to spend his time elsewhere. But if he can learn from his mistakes and start to better himself in that regard then I don't think we should discourage him from doing what he likes (i.e. making resources for MTA or whatever). That was my point.
  4. Dude don't let people discourage you from doing the things you like. I don't know the back-story of this or whatever has happened but even if you've made mistakes, learn from them and move on. If you like to play this game and make resources or whatever for it, then do it! Don't let other people (especially on the internet) tell you what to do.

    Wtf ?

    They used teh hax!! No they didn't. This screenshot was taken on MTA 1.1. Like Zango said there's no slot restrictions. Yeah it was a joke...
  6. That's not the programming itself, it's mainly maths. Some trigonometry and matrices. Interestingly enough, I haven't learned about matrices in school, but discovered many things myself Yeah but you do have to learn how to implement it in scripts. I mean, I know trigonometry and linear algebra quite well but I still wouldn't be able to (by myself) do something like this. So kudos to you good sir!

    How to?

    Try right-clicking.

    MTA IV

    Well the thing is, if you were to add scripting capabilities and dedicated servers ofcourse to the existing multiplayer part of GTA IV, it wouldn't suck as much.
  10. Solidsnake14 - You should make a new topic for your resource instead.

    I miss this

    Why not play GTA:SA? it has better graphics more stuff etc, its better in my opinion. I don't know, maybe it's just nostalgia but I've always had a soft spot for GTA: VC and I used to have lots of fun with it (especially MTA: VC) back in the day.

    A LOT is wrong with that song to be honest, but that's not the point of this thread.. haha..

    I miss this

    Was browsing around youtube and stumbled upon this video: It really made me realize how much I miss MTA:VC and I couldn't help but to make a topic about it. Is there any chance that MTA:VC will be revived?
  14. I'm using a Macbook Pro myself and I must say that I was skeptical too at first but after using it a while, I realized the huge difference in quality and design when compared to regular laptops. Now remember that I'm not talking about stationary PCs vs Macs, as I haven't had the chance to really try out a stationary mac. Anyway, if you want a laptop that looks good, performs well and atop of that has great battery life and quality, then I'd recommend a Macbook Pro.

    Hackers (again)

    Oh and don't forget, he's also massively dyslectic.

    I'll bet 20 bucks that "meh" is the hacker, lol.

    MTA and SAMP

    There are solid TDM servers in MTA too, if you guys haven't noticed. (referring to the people who claim that there are only freeroam, RP servers)
  18. Has anyone ever told you what a douchebag you are? You've destroyed my life. I bet you're proud. On a more serious (albeit still off-topic) note: I have at least contributed something to the community, as opposed to you. You have been here roughly 3 times as long as I have, yet you have only 34 posts, most of which reveal you as more of a douchebag than I (or about 10 of me put together) will ever be. Since you're calling people a douchebag while actually being worse than they are, though, you are also a world-class hypocrite. As for you, Izanagi, I don't bother trying to argue with people if they're not even making sense. Try again later. I win. Can we get back on topic now? So your definition of being a douchebag is not posting that much even though you've been registered for several years? If you read through my posts again you'll see that I'm not as arrogant and full of mysef as you are. Therefore, by definition, you're much more of a douchebag. And yes, you do win the prize of being the biggest douchebag I've seen in a while. And I know, you'll give me a long, more self-fulfilling answer now to compensate for your childhood problems or whatever it can be that makes you the douchebag you are behind that keyboard. I won't bother answering it though. Oh and about contributing to the community; if you think contributing to a community means being a douchebag, you're way off man. And if you have contributed to the community, please tell me in what way(s) and how that makes you less of a douchebag. Take this in and try to improve yourself.
  19. Has anyone ever told you what a douchebag you are?
  20. None of the alternatives. I've played MTA since MTA: VC 0.3 back in ~2003-2004.
  21. Thank you for you help but I've already solved it myself by running both Multi Theft Auto.exe and gta_sa.exe as an administrator.
  22. I get this error message every time I try to join a server: Halp? Oh and by the way, I'm using Windows Vista (not sure if it matters though).
  23. This fixed my problem, thank you.
  24. I didn't close it.. That's just what happens when I start it...
  25. This is what happens when I try to start my server: [15:09:28] Server log being saved to 'C:/Program/MTA San Andreas/server/mods/deathmatch/logs/server.log' [15:09:28] ERROR: Could not parse 'settings.xml' file (Invalid file).
