Due to the massively hyped release of the first GTA 4 trailer in less than 24 hours, and the expected huge increase in traffic and bandwidth we'll be putting out, I'm going to disable the entire downloads database tomorrow to ensure The GTA Place stays fast for everyone. I actually did a few optimisations in the past 24 hours to make the site less resource intensive when the downloads are active, hopefully that will prove helpful.

I will turn the downloads back on 24 hours after the release of the trailer, so don't worry, they aren't going forever!

At 6PM EST tomorrow, the downloads will be turned off, and all page requests will display a quick message before automatically redirecting to the front page where you'll see the GTA 4 trailer. And anyway, that's more important than downloads isn't it? So there we go ;)


Hope to see ALL of you on here at 6PM EST tomorrow!

We might also get lot's of members because of guest's who decide to join. Let's hope they will stay longer then 1 week. Might make it a little more active here.

BTW Chris. What if the trailer is flash embedded. How can TGTAP host it then?

Good idea, that will certainly be needed because we don't want any problems.

They won't put the trailer in flash Jace, trailers are always released as video files. Mainly .wmv and .mov.

Yeah good idea Chris or else this place would be swarming with downloads and the whole site would be uber slow. I'll see everyone at 6pm EST time. Be there or be square! (no matter how corny that sounds it's true) :P

Be patient, it's not that long, and even if so, reply in the GTAIV Countdown, not here.

Well, I was going to download a mod for VC, but when I'd install VC it would take a long time, plus the mods would take a while to download as well, well it's not that long.
