Oh, I wasn't around then, but it sounds fine. If OGTAM finishes my sig, I'll credit him for it.

On first viewing I thought you'd got rid of the Trading Stalls, which I would have had a problem with, but thankfully that hasn't happened - I'm cool with all the other changes.

But getting rid of the store means we don't have points anymore, for reasons I mentioned. We won't have a use for the trading stalls - the only main thing it's used for is for trading graphics now, but that can just be moved to the graphics forum. I don't see why everything has to be done for points, how about some respect - that's far more important.


It is, but how will you be able to get new graphics made by other members? If they're taking their time out to do something for you, and they don't get anything for it, I don't really see the point TBH. If they give them to you for free, then fine, but it just seems a little odd to me. I know that the only thing you could do with the cash was buy weapons and other things, that you probably wouldn't end up using anyway, but still. What happens to the dollars we have on hand then, do they mean anything or not? I guess they'll be wiped out when the store goes.


They could do it cuz they're compasionate and like making sigs. Like you said, you'd probably not even use the money, so what's the big deal?

I always like the points system. Even though it's useless, it's just fun seeing it grow over years time. After 1,5 years it finally starts to become a decent amount. Just nice to see that.

They've got no actual purpose though. Oh, wait. The Arcade. You win points in the Arcade.
But then.. nobody really uses the Arcade anymore..

The arcade was good,but like Jace said,no one really goes there anymore.
The points system is fun,even though it has no purpose.It`s still fun.

Ermm...

That's another good point actually which I thought of but didn't post about. Removing the arcade. I mean, does anyone really make any use of that except for when they're bored? There hasn't been a tournament since we had it installed years ago, because hardly anyone is actually interested. All it served for was to pass time away, but why do that when we have better things to do like play multiplayer GTA.
If you wanna play games there's plenty of sites out there for you.

Any thoughts on that?

I visited the arcade once, looked at it, never came back in, no offence but it was shit. It's not useful to anyone.

So what's your point? Things change, get over it. If you don't like the changes then put up a good argument or leave.

Chris, if your willing to I'm learning Lua and can help with a script for the MTA SA server. I'm thinking deathmatch RPG with a system so people can login with they're forum username and password and manage from a web based system. Lua makes it extremely easy.

Sorry about my bad attitude. I suppose we could have both, since everyone likes different things.

I've started on a gamemode for SAMP, it's quite fun, Pawn is a nice language.

Sorry about like, my earlier posts Rockstarrem..:(

Planning any other changes Chris?

It's all good Connor, and yes Pawn is a nice language, I actually like it a bit better then Lua right now, but that's because I'm more used to Pawn.

I dunno yet Connor, we'll see what happens. Probably not anything major.

See if we have guys like you (rem and connor) learning the scripting languages then we could probably whip something up for ourselves. I guess I can use my knowledge of programming languages and learn it almost immediately depending on how it works.

It's really easy to pick up.

A TGTAP gamemode would be fun, could possibly integrate things from the forums into the game.

Ah, a suggestion, when people make sigs for people, people could rate the sigs 1-10 and the points could add up, showing who the big guys in graphics are. Probably MrLlamaLlama.

I just thought I'd post this video here for the MTA haters. Jordan made it for PlanetGTA.

Things we can notice:
Beautiful menu interface which looks very simple to use
Easy to connect to server in the server browser (same as SAMP here tbh)
Syncing issues? There are very few imo, when Jordan shot people they lost health more or less straight away.



And this isn't to say we won't use SAMP, it's just for the people who were complaining about MTA for no apparent reason.

Now back on topic, can I get a quick vote on who here would play multiplayer San Andreas (either mod).. i.e. those of you with SA for the PC and would actively game online. Just post so I can get an idea of how many people we'd have.

Well I'll for sure play GTA SA on SAMP or MTA, but I have heard you cant have SAMP and MTA installed at the same time right?

I can also play VCMP?

Just duplicate your installation, install MTA on one, SAMP on another.

Thanks for the video Chris, I think I must of been on a VERY shit server.

I'm still not very keen on the interface and things like that, when I found a server, I couldn't alt-tab out to tell my friends. Although they did look very nice.
