San Andreas Multiplayer (SA:MP) is a modification for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas which turns it into a multiplayer game. You can play over the internet (or LAN) with up to 200 other people. You need the original Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas PC game to play San Andreas Multiplayer.

In SA:MP you are able to do almost anything that you can do in single player GTA. SA:MP also features the ability to create your own scripted game mods. There are many game modes (listed below) that feature a series of different and fun things to do. Many of which are not possible in single player.

I used to play the one made for Vice City. The great thing about it was people would make up their own gametypes as they went along. You might start out racing then you might all stop at a ramp and jump for distance. Then someone would pull out a rocket launcher and try to hit the car as it went mid-air, then ppl would start deathmatching and on it went.

pretty stable. it has issues with vista but they are easily overcome by setting compatibility mode to XP. also, if you are using the steam or direct2drive version you just need to copy over the exe with an unpatched one from the DVD version to get it to work. this doesn't work with the patched exe. I have the file if anyone needs it.

Eh I can't keep up with computer technology (as far as what cards you need and RAM) I'm not sure if this piece of trash could even handle that game.

Sounds like a blast though :(

i see you keep joining and leaveing there are 2 of us in there and 1 on the way. you have to type "/register <password>" into the chat console when you join the first time. It keeps track of users that way for kicks and bans. to spawn use the arrow keys to pick a class and then shift to spawn.

C'mon this is pretty fun. The hack script is a little too aggressive though.

ok i got LVDM going with weapons script. You just type /weapons to bring up the buy menu. Should make DM more fun and less hassle without having to go to ammunation to buy a gun. Might work well with the Los Santos Gang War script as well. also, now everyone will have access to the rocket launcher so certain people can't instantly own everyone with the tank or the helo....*ahem* lawl

Hey now, it takes time to build up tank and helo skills. It's not easy controlling the tank through a power slide and chasing someone through the woods in the Apache. Also it's easier than it looks to time your jumping so you don't get run over.

It sucks I killed Poochie for nothing as I lost his cash right when I got kicked.

I tried to go Al Qaeda on Beeman as he sat in that parking lot trying to make bank. Unfortunately I stalled my plane too early and crashed it just short of him. Made me look like an ass.

This really is almost like a GTA MMO. The mode really is easy to install and get set up soanyone who loves GTA needs to give this a try.

Edit: This is one of those games where having a controller instead of a keyboard/mouse makes it for an easier time to control. I do have my keyboard in front of me for when I'm sniping though.

Hi, how can I get that .exe? I have been seeing people saying that replacing that file isn't a sufficient fix for the steam version of the game, and I really want to play multiplayer. Any advice is useful because, while I hate to admit it, I'm really a NOOB. :icon_neut
