Multi Theft Auto 0.6 Nightly 1 Released

Post by SugarD-x »

We are happy to announce that a new nightly for Multi Theft Auto 0.6, (specifically made for use with Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City), has been released! While a lot of changes has been made to improve stability and add features, it is very important to note that this is still a nightly build, and not a full release version. It will contain bugs and issues, most of which are noted below alongside all known changes since the previous nightly. Many plans are still on the table, or are actively being worked on, so don't be discouraged.

- The server only shuts down after you close the process. If you type 'q' or 'quit' in the console but don't close it, as attempting to start another server on the same port will fail.

- The chat always appears on the loading screen.
- The game crashes on the loading screen when using the VC 1.1 EXE.
- The game often crashes when entering a vehicle (applies for both local and remote players).
- The client randomly thinks the player died due to a punch/kick on game startup.
- The client never times out, even if the connection to the server is lost

There are a lot of under-the-hood changes to the code which fixed many problems that existed before, and many that were introduced after the last nightly that had to be fixed.
