Multi Theft Auto (MTA) is an open-source software project that adds full on-line gaming support to Rockstar North's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas PC game, in which this functionality is not originally found. It is the first open-source modification that adds a highly customizable network play element to a commercial closed-source single-player PC game. Developed as an experimental piece of software for earlier Grand Theft Auto series, Multi Theft Auto has become an advanced multiplayer platform for gamers and developers. Our software provides on-line gaming for dozens of players running user-generated gameplay content and scripts through a Lua virtual machine, and is freely distributed under the GPLv3 license.
Thirteenth stable release of the Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas multiplayer modification for GTA: San Andreas, with several new features including voice chat, custom handling, special skins and more! This installer package consists of a game client, dedicated server for Windows and a resources package, which includes map editor and a race gamemode, along with several other gamemodes, maps and utility scripts.
Welcome to the news! Today we are releasing 1.3.4. In this patch we have introduced a few new features and fixed many bugs.
Of those new features includes the ability to play sound effects from the game in 3D or just through a players' speakers. Here's an example video.
We have also included a source compiling and encryption option. This allows you to compile and encrypt your lua through MTA’s website. As of 1.3.4 this can be done at Luac.mtasa.com API + Documentation at Luac.mtasa.com This feature will be available for all future MTA versions.
Vehicle upgrades now check the model file as well as the list of supported upgrades so that it cannot crash with custom models. All vehicle spoilers are supported by all vehicles that support spoilers now and vehicle upgrades have been tidied up adding some missing/wrong entries.
