Yeah it's not operating systems that cause problems it's the browsers themselves, currently IE6 and versions below that are the only ones not working. Vista comes with IE7 so everything will work fine ;)

I doubt there's any threads here about Linux, or indeed Mac for that matter. You see since everyone here is for GTA, almost every single one of us are Windows users (for playing GTA on our PC's with mods etc.)

I personally have a Mac as well as a Windows PC though, and have tried a couple of Linux distros in the past. Look in the computer & tech forum, there's probably nothing there but you could always start a topic about it, if I'm not being lazy/busy I may reply myself ;)

Noticed that I said I never had probs with it. And I've got no idea how someone else can get, you just need a little protection.
And duh MS wants you to upgrade. You wouldn't want to still use hardware of 5 years ago or Windows 95 now would you?


@Chris: You could say that users who have difficulty with the download system for whatever reason should upgrade to IE7 (+link).

I could but there are still people using OS's such as windows 2000 where upgrading to IE7 isn't possible. It's best just to get it fixed anyway, which I will do.

One thing I missed of the to do list was all the tutorials I need to write, added them all now.

Ow, right. I still have a unfinished tut for TGTAP somewhere in my special GTA place folder.
Might try finishing that this weekend, though I'm probably going to be to busy..

The only people who don't like Firefox are:

1)Poor and don't have the money to get a decent amount of ram (at least 512mb) that you should have anyway
OR
2)Are retarded


Your the f***ing retard for adding all those toolbars you tool.
they suprisingly don't make it go any faster despite what my brother belives clicking in vein to try and win those stupid ad games trying to make the page load faster.
firefox is for diks with 1 finger and 1 thumb.
try using just the google one it has a translater and everything i need all in 1.

if it goes without saying why say it?
why do people pay money to go up tall buildings and put money into binoculars to look at things on the ground?
If i have a mid-life crisis at 15, am i only going to live to 30?
you know your getting old when you hear your favourite song on the radio in the elevator.
If everyone was to put others before themselfs who would go first?
ERGO: there has and always will be that one PRICK at the front of the line.

You are seriously acting like a Idiot right now, because not that I'm the only one using Firefox here, almost half of the members on the forum are using it too, Including the admin as well. It's much more securer than IE6, and has some add-ons. So really I think you have to get Firefox since you can't even spell.

Other than that, Nice work on the front page Chris. It's starting to look good. :thumbsup:

As already stated, enough with the "my browsers better then your browser" crap, as Chris said it will support all browse, so case closed, move on.

Nice troll, idiot. That image is simply an example as to how your browser will get if you click Yes on all the popups etc. for installing toolbars from generally malicious websites. And toolbars make your browser go slower not faster, that's obvious, anything you add to a browser will slow it down - it is not in the least bit surprising. Also, Google make the google toolbar for IE and Firefox, so in fact your whole trolling rant is rendered obsolete. GTFO this topic.


Next person to make browser war references in this topic gets perma b&. The only browser comments I want are those reporting bugs (such as the fuck up in IE6).


Other than that thanks for the comments.

Ok so in IE6, the top part of the database shows up (Newest downloads, Most popular tables, etrc...)

But then there is a large bank space and at the bottom of the site there is the 'Category' table.

Perhaps it's because IE doesn't want there to be a large blank space beneath the downloads tables.

@killa: not sure what your problem was but it's all working fine on all browsers I've tested.


Today I did a very small update, and that is that the system now recognises when you are logged in, and so you don't have flood control on searches any more - only guests (if not logged in) are subject to flood control which is currently once every 30 seconds.

Another small update today. You can now rate files from directly on the file page (this functionality will be improved but it works fine for now).

I've also moved the system out of the beta directory now that all the basic functionality is there (all that's really left to go is the administration and user pages), and it's all had enough testing from you guys now.

So, http://www.thegtaplace.com/downloads/

Nope, it has it's own colour scheme Chris and I worked on. I don't think were gonna make it generic.

Yeah, although it still isn't definitely final, but pretty much. POssibly revamping the layout of TGTAP over the summer anyway, I don't know.

If you want a new lay out I'd wait for the release of IV.

And some icons sometimes don't display, refreshing should do.

Let me know when your ready for that, I'd love to give you some examples of what I would do, and you can decide if you like them or not.

The IE6 bug should be fixed now. Press Ctrl + F5 if you're still seeing weird page loading errors.
Let me know how it looks for you if you use IE6 - every other browser should be fine.

Major progress has now been made. See the first post for the full check list on what's been done.

Basically today I've finished the whole User CP for the downloads system. See http://www.thegtaplace.com/downloads/

You of course need to be logged in to your forum account to use it. From there you can manage your files and upload new files. There may be a couple of small bugs but I fixed all the major ones I came across. You CAN start uploading your mods, however I won't necessarily approve them any time soon, as I still have the admin panel to code.
