Installing the latest build

Recommended Posts

Can someone give me a step by step guide (in newblet language) to getting the latest build working ?

I have these files/archives etc on my desktop right now:

  • mtasadm_v1.0-dp2.3.exe
    cegui-0.4.0-custom-src r203

I have no MTA files installed and a fresh copy of GTA Sa installed in the default folder (prog / rock / GTA), I would really like to try out the latest builds so if anyone could give me a run through of exactly what to do now then that would be great. I've been searching here and google for a while but everything I've found has either failed to launch GTA or gave me errors and asked me to reinstall so I've uninstalled everything and started again many times but no joy.

I just really need to be told where all the different contents go like the data and the MTA10 folders etc but a guide from freshly downloaded to installed would be great.

Cheers !

For a regular testing/resource development or map making, you just need these three:

1. mtasadm-1.0-r547.exe - install it to a folder of your choice, a default one is good enough though

2. multitheftauto_data-r407.exe - install it to a folder it will propose (it should pick the same as above)

3. multitheftauto_resources-r92 - unpack this to MTA San Andreas\server\mods\deathmatch\resources (MTA San Andreas folder will be where you've installed it on first step)

.. and you're ready to go! :)

Thanks for the reply.

I do that but like before it just cuts off after showing the MTA loading pic (stop playing with yourself). I get a small egg timer with my normal cursor for a second then it just goes away and nothing happens, the process isn't showing in my task manager either.

I can install and play the developer preview with no problems, it's only when I try the nightly build this happens.


These are my logs, 'core.log':

Oh and I can start a server no problem but I just can't run the game through the 'Multi Theft Auto.exe', it just quits after the MTA loading screen (before any GTA splash stuff).

See if these advices will help: http://development.mtasa.com/index.php? ... ash_screen

It could be also caused by a gta_sa.exe file that's incompatible with MTASA. Currently only 1.0 EU/US exes are supported.

I followed some of those suggestions none have helped/changed anything as far as I can tell.

I don't think it's the exe as it works with the DP version but not with NBuilds but I'll find a no DVD patch or whatever and apply that to see if it works.

Again thanks for the reply and if I fix it I'll post here what I did incase anyone else has the same issue.

Try installing the new nightly and see if the problem will still occur. Could be caused by a revision-specific crash due to incompatibility with 1.0 EU exe, which should be fixed in the newest build.

Indeed this worked fine, loaded first time and all that.

Cheers for the help !
