Gta3am - multiplayer mod


DaCoTa

Recommended Posts

For all of you to know: there is a multiplayer mod in development. It is in a very early alpha state, but the first working proto has been tested on a LAN. The official site will be launched probably later today, with a cam and info on how to use it.

 

A few words of caution: this is a very early alpha version, actually the first one that ever showed anything. Don't expect a fine-tuned, easy working, bugfree mod, it's a long, long way from that. It only supports 2 players and in-car gameplay only, no shared peds, no correct carmodels and a fair performance hit on slower machines (sub 1 Ghz). But it works...

 

Links - both in Dutch:

Gamer.nl review

 

P.s. Please keep this clean by not bitching about the state of this mod. It is real and it is going to be great. But it needs a lot of effort and time before it will be.

 

Edit: I am not the author of this modification, a Dutchman IjsVogel (IceBird) is.

Wow, finally. GTA3 MP moves a step closer...

 

If/when you get it working fully, I'm sure it will be great, and thanks for all the time and effort that has been put into making it.

OK, this gotten me so hyper about finally being able to do multiplayer GTA3 I've pretty much turned into a giggling idiot. Gotta go practice with a few missions where you have to go hunt somebody down for deathmatch. :devil:

Starts up GTA3

I'm lookin forward to Vice PC multiplayer also!

Oh BTW anyone starting a server? If so, simply post your ip (or whatever that number is it uses) and perhaps somebody will join!

EDIT:My ip:192.168.1.103 I'll be running a server until 6:45 Central time today (Feb. 13).

192.168 is a local area network IP, it's not your internet IP, no one will be able to connect.

He's right. 192.168.*.* means you're behind some sort of NAT, which nullifies almost all chances of running a server.

 

edit: oh, someone try this mod out for me.

Oops.. nevermind then.

EDIT: Oh, and how can I find my internet ip? Obviously not from winipcfg.

try http://www.showmyip.com and http://www.whatismyip.com

 

It's possible they could show a proxy IP though and not your IP.  Also even if you do get your real IP, people probably won't be able to join since you'd need to forward ports.

 

might aswell link to the offical page for this "multiplayer mod" http://www.gta3am.tk

This is an amazing program! I tested it and was playing GTA3 multiplayer through my LAN with another person. It actually works and is real, unlike the many fake attempts in the past.

Not too hard. Here's how I did it:

 

-Get the multiplayer program from the site: http://www.gta3mta.tk

-Run it on both computers on the network

-Choose one to be the server and click "Start Server"

-On the other PC, click "Join Server", after typing in the IP address of the server

-Under the logo, it should say "Connected"

-Start GTA3 on both PC's

-Now do this on both computers near the same location (ex: the Portland hideout):

  -Get in any car, then get out of it.

  -Get in a second car and stay in it.

-Once both PC's have done this, the server needs to press ALT and F12 at the same time to activate multiplayer.

-If both PC's are at the same place in GTA3 (such as the same hideout), then you should be able to see each other in another car. The car will probably be a different model than what it really is, but it should still work

 

Let me know if this helps.

Hey guys, I'm the creator of this mp-mod, along with some other programmers and testers now.

I know it's yet very unstable, but this is just the beginning.

We have tested it already a couple of times and it really works, there is also a movie (codec is DivX 5.0.2) available from http://www.dutchgaming.net/upload/movies/GTA3.zip --when you get an error "requested URL could not be retrieved", just click the link there and wait--

and some screenshots (Dutch forum, so you probably don't understand it but screenshots are fully visible!;)

http://gathering.tweakers.net/forum/list_messages/707958/11//

 

I hope you enjoy playing.. :p the site of GTA3: Multi Theft Auto is http://www.gta3mta.tk!

Thanks! I got 68.102.36.21. Since people will probably still not be able to join, will anybody else here start a server?

EDIT:Oh and perhaps if we manage to get one started perhaps we can do IJsVogel a favor and get him a few more screenshots?

It's great that this has been achieved, and I'm sure we will be able to thank the creators of this for many hours of the eagerly awaited GTA MP.

 

On another note, a little question. I am connected to the net over a LAN. This causes some problems with games over the internet, such as GTA2. However, others worked fine, such as Delta Force 2. So, will this be able to work?

Let me say this- YOU ROCK!!!! I just checked out the video. The music went well with it. Keep up the great work.

P.S. This topic NEEDS to be pinned.

I'm also connected through a LAN. For some programs, you have to use "port forwarding". Do you know what operating system the server (one directly connected to the net) has? If it has Windows 2000 or XP, then it's easy to forward ports and I'll tell you how.

I have XP and it works fine. Some other people have had the same error as you, but I couldn't figure out why.

do you have SP1 installed?  i had a similar error with another app i used, it would give me that on load mails..  i was talking to the programmer, and we were talking about new features to add, and i mentioned the bug and he fixed it, perhaps i can ask him what he did to fix it..  oh sh*t, maybe it was a division by zero error instead..

 

i thought of another possobilty, maybe it has to do with some of the services i have disabled..  some other apps i used to use, give me the same error..  or 'specified module cannot be found', or a ocx i have is outdated, use the one provided with the app, when i already am using it..
