San Andreas Community Stunt Video

By Chris | 29th Dec 2005 at 17:15 GMT in San Andreas | 7 Comments
I receive submissions of stunt videos all the time but if I ever I get one from GTAStunting I always look forward to it.
Daf-Fy sent me some news to post and so I'll let him explain the stunt video that has been created called Amped.

The Community is proud to present the very first San Andreas Community Stuntmovie. Loaded with some of the best and most difficult stunts ever done this movie is sure to impress even the best stunters out there or people who have just looked at the cover of a GTA game.
GTAStunting follows up their great tradition in community movies with another hardhitting Stuntmovie, but now for the first time in San Andreas, over 200 replays where sent in but only the best were picked out by stunting legend "DeathCobra."
The people at are proud to present the best of the best edited by "Daf-Fy!" The soundtrack was a hard job to pick out but finally these songs were selected:
Trevor Jones - Sleep Now
Insolence - Poison Well
Linkin Park feat. Jay Z - One Step Closer / 99 Problems
Quarashi - Mr Jinx

No mods where use to enhance the handling of the stunts in this movie! Some stunts were sped up a little or down during the editing because of the stunters different hardware but the stunts remain the same. Be sure to visit for more!

Download Amped and let us know what you thought of it!

GTA Multiplayer & Modding Update

By Chris | 19th Dec 2005 at 20:13 GMT in San Andreas | 0 Comments
News on the Grand Theft Auto front has been rather slow as of late, with only edisoncarter's LCS hacking and Switch's new mods worth posting about. So now's a good opportunity to update you all on the progress of some of the mutiplayer mods in development, and some total conversion mods.

First off we have GTA Multiplayer, the team who have taken over development of the former SA-MP mod. Yesterday saw the release of their first video, showing off the work they've put into the core and synchronising elements of the mod. Progress is just over 72% at the time of posting.

Next we have MTASA, still no release as of yet, but by the sounds of it they don't have that much left to do before the first release. They're currently developing a server-side anti-cheat mechanism, which is a great way to rid the community of the few who wish to spoil the fun. You can keep an eye on their updates by reading their blog.

Not much to post about gtaTournament since their last release. Looks like they have a few of the socket errors which have plagued their mod previously. Version 0.3 seems like it's coming along nicely too, version 0.2 is available from our downloads database for those who are desperate to play now.

The newest multiplayer mod on the scene is GTA Rumble. These guys are already doing well with a few beta releases out already. They are hoping to get everything fixed before Christmas, so I'm looking forward to this one. They seem like a very dedicated team working on it. You can check out and download their current mod at

If you remember there were a fair few other teams trying to get a share of the multiplayer gaming world. Teams are mostly now defunct, but included SA-2P, a mod simulating the 2 player mode seen on the PS2 and Xbox versions of San Andreas. SanAnarchy, looked promising and got to 86% finished but last update was well over a month ago so it doesn't look like they're doing too great. Online Andreas was probably the first multiplayer mod released, however it doesn't seem to have been worked on at all since then. There may have been some others but to be honest if people can't even remember them they probably aren't worth posting about.

Finally to conclude this post, the team working on GTA-LVS released version 0.2 of their mod earlier this month, which aims to bring Liberty, Vice and San Andreas together. There's still a lot of work to be done but it shows they're progressing. Enjoy playing that.

G4tv Attack Of The Show TV Grenades

By Switch Designs | 14th Dec 2005 at 11:41 GMT in San Andreas | 3 Comments

This mod will change the grenades in GTA San Andreas into TV grenades with the greatest show on G4tv (Attack Of The Show) on the screen. If your wondering how I got the motivation to ever make a mod like this I'll tell ya....

So I was just kickin back watching some G4tv when my favorite show Attack Of The Show came on the tube. I thought hmmmm (Attack Of The Show) wouldn't that be funny if a show could really attack you and that's when idea for the grenades hit me like a ton of bricks or rather an exploding TV! I got right to work making a model of a TV with the show in mind.

I've added an optional texture for those who live in a cave and have not seen the show or just simply don't like it O.o you can see a preview of that texture here.
And the actual mod for GTA San Andreas (for PC) can be downloaded here
P.S. Check back soon to see the new vehicle mod I'm currently working on (TOP Secret) Shhhhh..

Rocket Ride Go Kart

By Switch Designs | 11th Dec 2005 at 08:20 GMT in San Andreas | 7 Comments

This is my 5th San Andreas Mod for PC and my favorite so far.
It will change your go kart into a rocket ride machine like something you would see in front of your local store, mall or amusement center but better because this one can tear off through the city for an extra quarter.

Download it here.

I've also uploaded a preview of the model created by me here.
