Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas (MTA:SA) is a multiplayer mod ("modification") for the Microsoft Windows version of Rockstar North's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas that adds an otherwise absent online multiplayer component.

Although often referred to as a modification, Multi Theft Auto is based on code injection and hooking techniques whereby the game is manipulated without altering any original files supplied with the game. The software functions as a game engine that installs itself as an extension of the original game, adding core functionality such as networking and GUI rendering while exposing the original game's engine functionality through a scripting language.

Multi Theft Auto's latest release is for the game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and is built upon a now open source game engine that has been in development for several years and is the only project that is still actively maintained. The engine provides users with all the necessary tools they need to create their own game modes and maps by exposing a large part of the original game functionality through a Lua scripting machine.

On Saturday, 22nd of August, 2009, Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas v1.0 was officially distributed as the first open source release. This release abandoned the now obsolete "Deathmatch" tag in the product name to emphasize on the versatility of the software. Gameplay functionality is solely provided by the scripting language, so users can choose or develop their own combination of scripts and other contents to customize and host their own type of game.

Thank you to all the servers and clients who have updated to MTA 1.4 before it's final version, lots of bugs have been found and fixed and we appreciate that you have tested our sometimes particularly buggy builds, now we have finally got to a stage where we can consider 1.4 fit for a release version.

If the server allows mods, then yes. Most servers dont allow mods due to gaining an unfair advantage.

This mod is awesome! It makes SAMP looks really ridiculous :D.

For this year, I only wish that many players will stop listening those immature MTA haters who desperatly says that SAMP is better just because they can't script Lua, and will realise soon how much the MTA project owns!

By the way, I voted 10 because you guys deserve it for your great mod!

MTA:SA was brillantly developed, allowing any kind of game possibility. From racing to role-playing, forest mazes to hay stack climbings, there are endless possibilities. That makes MTA a modification impossible to get sick of, there's always something new to try out. And everything you need to create your own game is your brain, lua knowledge and a bit of imagination...
