What is SA-MP?

SA-MP (San Andreas Multiplayer) is a multiplayer modifcation for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, allowing users to play against each other over the internet or LAN. This mod is available for the PC version only.

Download SA-MP

You can download SA-MP from GTAGarage or from the SA-MP website. Once you have downloaded it, install it to your GTA San Andreas directory.

Joining a Server

Open SA-MP and use the three tabs at the bottom (Favourites, Internet and Official) to locate a server. Click on the Internet tab for a full list of all the available servers, and click on Official to see only the official servers. Then simply select the server that you wish to join, and click on the green connect button. Remember to enter a nickname before joining.

Controls

All of the controls are the same as in single-player, and you can change these by going to Options -> Controller Setup -> Redefine Controls. However, there are also a few extra commands you need to remember:

KeyDescription
ShiftSelects a character at the spawn screen.
T/F6Enables you to chat in-game.
GAllows you to enter a vehicle as a passenger.
Horn (CAPS)Initiates passenger driveby if player has Micro Uzi, Tec9 or MP5 in hand and is passenger.
F1Displays the in-game help menu.
F4Allows you to change your character (after death)
F5Shows network data (e.g bandwidth usage)
F7Hides the chat window.
F8Captures a screenshot.
F9Hides the death window.

A Few Points
  • Purchase weapons at the Ammu-Nation stores. These stores are represented by a gun icon on the radar, and there is at least one in each city.
  • Use the vending machines to re-gain health, or visit one of the restaurants (Burger Shot, Cluckin' Bell, The Well Stacked Pizza.) Click here for a map of all the restaurants.

You don't need to find servers in the server list!

I see many people trying to find the GTAnet server in the server list, when all you need to do is add it as a favorite by clicking the add to favorites button and then typing the IP which is on the front page. The same goes for any advertised server where the IP is shown.

QUOTE (Taste Of Chaos)
1) Open the sa-mp browser (Sa-mp shortcut).

2) Go into Favorites in the bottom left.

3) Once on favorites, click on the orange box with the white tick (Above Hostname).

4) Paste the server IP address (for gtanet this is: 85.17.36.105:4004) into this and click OK.

5) Enjoy

Yes, you can do that. I did that once. Beware though; one of the SA Dloads has a virus, which automatically makes you D-load everything that can be on the internet. No joke, I had over 20000 things be D-loaded at once. Only about 100 came through luckily I deleted them in time and deleted the infected file lol.gif . You also need a graphics card that can support Directx 9 I believe. Most of them are genuine though. biggrin.gif

REMOVED. GTANet does not support warez.

Mr. Campbell, SAMP will only function on a legally bought copy.

What part do you not understand?

If this comes off as harsh sounding, please don't think it is, I just need to know what you don't get so I can try and help.

No, sorry.

It's the latest version, which as of now, is unmoddable, and you need to be able to modify San Andreas to play online.

As was said in your other topic

After I join a server, the words are not in english, it is full of garble words(Mostly like unicode) that I don't understand. I use ZH-HK

Oops, sorry for dumping the topic, I didn't notice it is old. And I cannot register at SAMP

If you've modded your game you might face problems. Have a gander at the SA:MP wiki, you might find solutions: http://wiki.sa-mp.com/

Ask here for SA-MP support: http://forum.sa-mp.com/
If your problem is restricted to a particular server, you could also try posting your questions at the server's own dedicated forums.
