The GTA:Connection team are coming onboard SA-MP to help create this brand new multiplayer mod. They bring with them several months of multiplayer developing experience using Vice City.

Since we already maintained close contact with the GTA:C developers and both teams are interested in creating a cool multiplayer mod for GTA:SA, this seemed like the obvious thing to do.

Indeed. Lets just hope SA-MP core is better than the infamous "Blue" core tounge.gif

I knew it would happen since SA-MP was using irc.gtanet.com. I thought that SA-MP was written in C, while GTA:C uses VB. How will this work?

We're not merging our code, we're merly merging our resources and knowledge. GTA:C was being written in C++ (For the DLL) and the Client was being written in VB.

Cool to see solidarity and co-operation in oppose to censorship and favouritism .
Mr.bump is without comparison Sobeit , and I am not just talking about his age, I think you would agree.


What is going to happen to the Vice city version(s) , whos version will come into play ?
Does the extra personnel bring closer a possible Vice city release ?


No hurry on the San andreas one , some people are only on their fourth or so hour in the game.

They have different personalities, and saying that offended him because he thought that was an insult. Not really true though. Luke posts sometimes here and there and is on irc sometimes.

Speaking of personalities, what is the name of the guy responsible for the racist bot attacks in MTA ? You know, the guy who wrote that long goodbye post , had "hardcore" as an alias after.

..pardon?

Moving on, nice move with the merge.. but i presume that GTA:C is only being used as a reference to help with SA-MP now or is there going to be two different versions?

GTA:Connection was programmed using VB for the main part (the EXE), and then C++ for a DLL that we used to do some of the more fancy things such as animations for entering/exiting cars and DirectX. Since SA-MP is in C, then some parts will indeed be similar, but a large proportion of the work on any multiplayer mod like this (MTA perhaps being the exception because of the bit of support they get from R*) is finding out how exactly things can be done. A large proportion of the GTA:Connection team were/are active modders here at GTAForums, and most of us take an active interest in just how GTA works, and how it's programmed. Researching this and then using the information to change it is what modding is all about, GTA's modding community is so awesome purely for the reason that R* doesn't support it much - having to find everything out for yourself makes it fun. Well, that's how I think at least, not sure everyone agrees with me. But the point is that programming isn't quite all there is to making a multiplayer mod work.
QUOTE (Sobeit)

whatever.
The main part was always in VB, then we made a DLL in Delphi, but when we added the DirectX part had to use C++ for the DLL.

QUOTE (njr1489)

Camaro explained it well, since SA-MP is exactly as the name suggests, a multiplayer mod for San Andreas, it means it's a fresh start in many respects, certainly from a research point of view. That makes now a perfect time to merge, because neither team loses any work or has to go backwards because of the merge. GTA:Connection's Vice City project isn't a priority, and I can safely say that SA-MP's VC project was more advanced, mainly due to the way it was programmed.

QUOTE (Cray)
Congrats to both teams!
Cheers.

QUOTE (Sobeit)

The fact that Camaro is from Mr Men and has blue skin and an amazingly round body is a big secret, how did you find out!

QUOTE (Véscovo)

Personally I share the opinion that San Andreas is a far greater game than Vice City, and as such it's more of an interest to me, many people are simply bored of Vice City. To answer the question, no it doesn't, not really.

I can't see a way in which it wont result in a better mod, thanks. smile.gif

We do? Damn, there's always a catch..

Should help speed the process up a little bit I would think, sure.

QUOTE (Sobeit)

He's always the one with the most persistace and the one whose interest never dies, I admit I sometimes get bored and as such stop informing people of what's going on, but I do hang around in almost every channel on GTANet IRC, I'm not a hard guy to talk to.

Have a chat with kyeman sometime, make an offer I guess. Don't think you were counted in the last census of the GTA:C Team.
