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.
We're back on SVN! Contributing to our project is now easier than ever!

As mentioned in the previous newspost, we've been looking for ways improve the ease of contribution to the open-source repository. After some experimentation, we concluded that SVN was the best way to go for the project. We've successfully migrated to a new Google Code repository, which can now be found at Mtasa-blue.googlecode.com. As you can see, some changes have been made already over the last few weeks.
Alongside the new SVN, some new Coding guidelines have been introduced. It should be as easier than ever to get involved, with very small barriers to entry in order to gain commit access. Simply submit a few patches, and we'll grant commit access. There's already plenty of fresh blood added to the access list.
We're still working towards improving the forums and the community website, so stay tuned.
In other news, as our Twitter and Facebook users will be aware, MTASA was named an Unmissible Mod, be sure to checkout the whole article! We've also been mentioned on the German website PC Games as one of the Top Ten most influential mods!
