GTA1 Multiplayer


Recommended Posts


Hey if you enjoy playing GTA1 and wanted to play it online there is a solution. I'm making a server/client interface that will allow people to meet others and play GTA without having to bother with all the directX ports. This may seem like its a little late in the life of GTA1 but I believe whoever wants to play it will enjoy it, and GTADS isn't exclusively for GTA1. As of the release (targeted for March 15th) anyone with a windows 2000 or XP machine will be able to play 1 on 1 with someone else while only having to open up 1 port. If you have any questions or comments let me know but in the meantime check out the GTADS Homepage for any more information.

This is nice, we all know you won't see many people around, but it's a great idea. I'm sure I will try someday! blush.gif- Toyz are goood

yeah I know, this project started as something for me and my friends to play GTA1 online because the ports were a pain in the ass to deal with each time etc. GTA1 will be the first of many games to be supported on it in time. GTA2 comes to mind as well as Twisted Metal 2 and I'll work my way up from there.

how do you mean? If you mean promote it I am affiliated with a gaming network, FastPing.net and I a lot of people I know are interested in it. The client and server is all sorted out. I will run one server from my machine, which is currently the test server.

Ok GTADS Beta Release 1 has been released. You can get it through the link on GTADS Homepage . It currently allows 2 players for GTA1 head to head. Please follow the instructions on the blog post until I get some documentation on it.

You know what? I'm tempted to try this. But I need to download GTA1 again. So I'll take a few hours.

Made your own client for GTA1? NOW THAT'S OLDSKOOL!

I'm releasing a newer version of GTADS by the end of this week. Its been a while because of test machines and all that stuff but the Beta Release 1.1 will have a few extra things to make playing GTA1 online a little easier.




- Checks if Proxy Port is open on startup

- Server records ping times

- Support for multiple languages (Not 100% set up, Translators?)

- Ability to ban users

- Ability to bind your proxy host to a certain IP address

- Can save account info


You can grab the client now off of http://gtads.blogspot.com or wait for the release. I hope to you all you guys there. rampage_ani.gif

Somebody needs to convert the gta1 maps into gta2. It would be much better to play with gta2 gameplay. Does anybody think they can do this.


One guy made a map called sanandreas scramble, that worked perfectly.
