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.

Winner of 2011's ModDB Mod of the Year Awards - MOTY Player's Choice.

​a-year-in-recap.jpg

Hello.

2019 is nearing to an end, so here is our traditional "A year in Recap" post for you. Below you can find the summary of what has happened this year - along with the current status of an entry (where applicable) and other things that might be interesting to you.

πŸ“° 2019 in Recap

πŸ“Ί A bunch of interesting MTA:SA-related YouTube videos from this year

MTA SA: SAPDFR Online Gameplay 171 (Flaming in the Cold)
- server SAPDFR.org, video by Armor23OnPatrol



[DM] NeiT ft. Gteatero ft. nX_ - Demons Skills 3 - video by GercszTV


FBX replace per element feature - concept and video by CrosRoad95


[MTA SA] Let's play S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - server ex-zone.ru, video by TEDERIs


MTA:SA - Legend Mercy Tactics - video by TheGam3r23


MTA:SA Hydra Stunts 2019 [SW]Supa Innovation - video by SupaHotFire


πŸ“ˆ Current player counts and version fragmentation statistics


  • Recent peak number of concurrent unique players: 31808 players on 2019.12.15 (at 17.30 GMT)
  • Highest recorded number of concurrent unique players: 34653 players on 2018.02.03 (at 17.30 GMT)
  • Recent number of daily unique players: 132450 players on 2019.12.21 (Saturday)
  • Highest recorded number of daily unique players: 185818 players on 2018.02.03 (Saturday)
  • Recent number of monthly unique players: 531728 players in November, 2019
  • Highest recorded number of monthly unique players: 805903 players in January, 2018

Player counts were lower than the ones from last year, but they're still large. Again, it's great to see that so many players are still interested in GTA:SA even though it's over 15 years old now!


MTA:SA Version or series - Percentage of players using that version or series as of 22nd of December, 2019

  • 1.6.0 (old-alpha) - 0.10%
  • 1.5.7 - 97.80%
  • 1.5.6 - 1.20%
  • 1.5.5 (and older) - 0.70%
  • 1.4.x - 0.10%
  • 1.3.x - 0.10%

The latest stable version is the most popular one - and that's good.

πŸ“Ÿ Status updates


Not much to say at the moment. Things have slowed down a bit, but we are working towards the next release.


That's it for now.

β˜ƒοΈβ„οΈHappy Holidays and best wishes to all of you in 2020! πŸ₯‚πŸŽ†

Hi Guys!

I came across these mod, quite honestly you did great job guys!
Capture the vehicle is a lot of fun for a lan party with some friends! Could you please release a few new maps? Cops and robbers for a example would be great to have for a lan party! Or some Team deathmatch maps with cars etc...keep on working! This is big!

P.S. I think a short manuel would be help full for people who are new with this...it is not complicated but...

Great job guys!!!

You just need a clean installation of GTA:San Andreas. If you have that, you can just download MTA:SA 1.3.5 from ModDB or from our homepage.

This mod requires GTA:SA version 1.0, but if you have some other version the installer will try to downgrade it automatically for you.

SA:MP compared with MTA is impossible. Because MTA sync is better, MTA has a lot of USEFUL codes(not the useless codes and callbacks from SA:MP) but MTA have a problem, players. SA:MP have a lot of players, but 75% uses some type of Hack or Cheat, making SA:MP famous. MTA brings a perfect anti-cheat and Hacks are not your problem in MTA. Thanks, Kerang.
