  1. Seeing as how we get some many requests for help with SA-MP I decided a dedicated topic would be best for it for now. If you need help with SA-MP please post here outlining the problem and what you have already done to try and fix it. The best place if not here is the SA-MP Forums on the mods official website, so check them out to. Thanks.

    GTA IV censored in Australia

    Yeah it's hard to say, I'm thinking the stuff removed was the sexual content that was mentioned earlier today in the news. From what I read, it sounds like the kind of thing our board wouldn't let through, insinuated or not, they would still consider it "obscene"...

    Three New Artworks

    Not sure if these are of use, but here's slightly larger thumbnails of the 3 concepts:
  11. Original posted on GTAForums by me and made by me, since it's mine and it was actually given over to another member(s) on GTAForums without my permission, I don't see why I shouldn't use it here too. Since legally, it is mine, and I can use it as I wish. • Games Official Name: CONFIRMED. The has been entitled Grand Theft Auto 4/Grand Theft Auto IV (GTA4/GTAIV). It was expected, and has been confirmed by many other facts and news reports that have arised. Such as the official website for Grand Theft Auto IV being http://www.rockstargames.com/grandtheftauto4/ as well as the game being announced as "GTA4" by many game developers, Rockstar employees and game magazines. Now the '4' does not stand for the 4th GTA game. Because as we know, the officially 4th GTA game was GTA Vice City. The game series is worked as follows: Grand Theft Auto 1 - GTA 1 & GTA London 1964 Grand Theft Auto 2 Grand Theft Auto 3 - GTA III, GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas - GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories could also be included in this. Grand Theft Auto 4 So it can be put simply as 'a series of games on a new game engine with a new compilation of stories that clash with each other'. This means, GTA 3 was a series of games on the new 3D engine containing 3 games (5 if you include LCS and VCS) that all had there own story. When played together, you noticed them clashing together where you meet people before/after another game or visited places that you had or would soon do business in. Another way of knowing that this is currently confirmed is to look at the official site and see the logo: As you can see, the name "Grand Theft Auto IV" has been registered and is now a Registered Trademark of Rockstar Games and Take2Interactive. So it is near certain the game will be called Grand Theft Auto IV/Grand Theft Auto 4 and will be a series of new GTA games that run on a new game engine, with a new compilation of stories that will clash together, exactly the same as the Grand Theft Auto 3 series of games. • Main Character: CONFIRMED. The main character for Grand Theft Auto IV is a Eastern European man by the name of Niko Bellic, who has come to Liberty City after emails from his brother. He is suspected to be around the age of 35-40. Here is a more organised view of all the main characters that have been confirmed: Character Voice Actor News Source Character Information Niko Bellec --- --- Niko is the protagonist in GTA 4, an Eastern European immigrant. He is tricked into coming to Liberty City by his cousin, Roman. Roman claims he has two women, four hot tubs, fifteen sports cars, and money. Niko believes it. He comes to Liberty City to live the "American Dream". Niko is constantly arguing with Roman. He is a tough character, though. Roman --- --- Roman is Niko's cousin, he is the reason why Niko travels to Liberty City as Roman says he's living the high life with fast cars and women. Elizabeta --- --- Not much is know about Elizabeta at this time, although she does appear on a GTA 4 artwork which was released. Little Jacob --- --- Little Jacob is a Caribbean arms dealer, and one of Niko's close associates. He is very good friends with Roman, so expect the same traits. If you find yourself low on ammo, or just need a little more firepower, give him a call. Since walking up to your doorstep and handing you a AK-47 is frowned upon in Liberty City, he will give you a location for the exchange. More than likely a dark alley, or a shady pawnshop. Francis McCreary --- --- McReary is a corrupt cop that has some dirt on Niko's past. Meaning he will more than likely use that as leverage against Niko. Watch out for this character, he is not one to be trusted. Tom Goldberg --- --- Goldberg is a lawyer working for Goldberg, Ligner & Shyster, a law firm based in Liberty City, in one of the early missions Niko kills Goldberg in his office Karen --- --- The receptionist from Goldberg, Ligner & Shyster, who calls Niko to inform him about his interview, is called Karen. The table will be updated whilst information comes in. • Setting and Theme: CONFIRMED. Grand Theft Auto IV will be set in Liberty City. Unlike GTA III, Grand Theft Auto IV will have a new look, which means a new city, not the small little Version like GTA III has, but looks more the same as New York. We knew it was this setting because it was shown in the first and second trailer of GTA IV. It may not be as big as San Andreas, but the interior will be detailed. • The Box Art: On Monday, 29th October 2007, Grand Theft Auto fans from across web were surprised that Rockstar Games released some Boxart Covers, around 3 were shown. The total of boxarts that were sent were 6 covers (3 Covers for each Console). Here are the images: But after 1 day, Rockstar Games confirmed that it wasn't the official cover. These boxarts were just teasers that will sit on the pre-order shelves of your local gaming stores. Rockstar Games also said this: "We have always kept the final art under wraps until shortly before the official launch of the game." So, I guess we might not get to see the real boxart until it's released or near to the release, unfortunately. UPDATED: Just recently, Rockstar Games officially announced that trailer 3 will be coming on December 6th and with it, the official boxart on top of the date. Here is a thumbnail of the boxart: • Platforms: CONFIRMED - PS3 and Xbox 360. So far Grand Theft Auto has been announced for the Playstation 3 (PS3) and the Xbox 360. A PC release has not been announced, although one is expected. If there is a PC release, it will not be until around June-July 2008. NOTE: GTA IV will NOT be coming out for PS2 or any consoles that are below the next gen consoles. • Release Date: CONFIRMED - Rockstar has announced GTA IV will be released on 29th April 2008 North America 29th April 08' UK & Europe 29th April 08' Australia & New Zealand 29th April 08' Official Website - grandtheftauto.com The official website for the Grand Theft Auto series hosted and managed by Rockstar Games themselves.

    EA Offers $2billion for Take Two

    Forums link at the end of the article is dead, on the homepage it links to "http://www.thegtaplace.com/index.php?showtopic=15858" instead of "http://www.thegtaplace.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=15858". The "topic" bbcode needs to be fixed to make it a full url like "http://www.thegtaplace.com/forums/index.php?showtopic={topicID}" rather then just "index.php?showtopic={topicID}"

    IV Countdowner

    I never did much in Flash before, but I decided to try and make a countdowner to IV, anyway long story short I made two (2) slightly different ones (you'll notice the difference straight up). Just wanted to know what you guys thought, thanks. No. #1 No. #2
  15. IGN has posted an article covering NaturalMotion's Euphoria Technology and Grand Theft Auto IV. Here is a quick list of some of the amazing things Rockstar have implemented it in: * Niko's stance will adjust depending on the grade of ground he is standing on * Niko is also spatially aware of his environment (in layman's terms, he knows where walls and potential dangers are) * While standing on hills and mountains his knee's and feet will incline or decline on an angle * He walks with a noticeable counterbalance, keeping his center of gravity correct * When running at a fast speed he will be proactive in pushing open doors (because he is spatially aware of his surroundings, he will know the door is there and thus push it open without stopping) * When shot enough, enemies will fall backwards and slouch, trying to regain their last ounces of breath. * Car physics are sickenly realistic; rear-end another car and the people in the front seat will propel through the windscreen. * Same goes for side-on's, bailing from the car while in acceleration (similar to what you could do in Vice CIty onwards, only a little more realistic now) * When tackling walls, staircases or even just falling Niko's hands and feet are controlled automatically to ensure all his movements are realistic and play true * Niko will duck into a commando roll when he falls to far * Euphoria also controls how the new drunk feature works -- drunken, stumbling shamble, and camera blurs adding to the disorientation * When clinging to trucks (as seen in trailer #2) he will hold on more forcefully when the truck takes corners * Pedestrians are also proactive to weather formation and will change their actions (for example running) when it is going to begin to rain momentarily Very impressive stuff, we're just itching to play this game just to see how the physics work. There is no doubt, this game is going to re-define gaming a second time for the franchise. Be it the game play that is being raved about of the physics that have never been attempted before, this is unmissable. IGN and comprehensive list by RockstarWatch
  16. Thats okay, Chris posted it and nicely thanked someone else for the effort, how great is that?

    Rumor: Hillary Clinton in GTAIV?

    Should i.... make it any bigger? I doubt you read the whole article, neonfire. Wow, talk about stuck up. I don't believe rumors are restricted from forum posts my good sir . Also, i is capitalized (thus, I) in the English language when placed singly. Hard to say whether it is real or fake, it could affect there rating, but then again they've been doing inside jokes like this for years, so maybe not...
  18. http://www.rockstarwatch.net/news/219/gran...s-18-from-pegi/
  19. I don't know how it works in other countries, but here ratings are a recommended guideline tool. For example MA15+ here means it is recommended to persons over 15+, if your not over 15 it is recommended you are accompanied by an adult or persons over 18. The only exclusions are X, XX and XXX (pornography). Same with all games and movie. When I was 10 I could see an M15+ or MA15+ movie if a parent was with me.
  20. Well don't take the "18+" as being generally bad. The rating under that is 16+, which wouldn't really fit the game I don't think since it is adult oriented. 18+ is rather equal to Australia's MA15+ rating that the game received the other week. So I can't see it being bad, in fact I can see the game being released everywhere just fine.
  21. Mate, it's before the internet or Windows even :P.

  22. Phew good, I'm not the only one who noticed...
  23. So what's your point? Things change, get over it. If you don't like the changes then put up a good argument or leave. I wasn't unhappy about the fact there is changes going on, in fact it's not my problem, your choice. I don't have a problem with the changes or even changes in general, my problem was the way we mirror changes to follow trends of other sites rather then flying on our own. As I have said many times before, but of course, as if I would know anything right? Just seems silly to follow sites we are obviously more popular than...
  24. Nearly seems as if we are doing the same thing another site did, oh wait thats cause we are doing the same thing . Lame.
