On the eve of the V-RP Closed Beta, the V-RP team is excited to release the official server trailer. Hopefully, this trailer satisfies that urge that we all have to get this server launched just a little bit longer as we begin to allow a select few onto the server.


(All footage taken on the V-RP Test Server)
As some may have heard, the V-RP Closed Beta will start sometime tomorrow. During the duration of the beta, the development team will crack down on bugs and issues which are discovered to prepare the server for official launch. Once the beta concludes, we will take a final gloss over the code and ready it for full launch. We don't have a set date yet, but we will announce a launch date once it has been decided.

Special thanks to Norton for putting this trailer together, ItzJordan, 101spud, and Catháir for providing acting abilities, the V-RP development team for all the hard work everyone has been putting in, and of course the community for being patient and understanding during this entire process. This server is for the community, we would not be here without you.

In an effort to involve the community as much as possible in the preparation of MTG V-RP, we have decided to begin accepting applications for a V-RP Closed Beta.

I know many will be disappointed with the closed nature of this beta, however, a closed beta will better allow us to handle major and minor issues in a quick manor and in such a way that they will not affect the longterm longevity of the server. This includes stability issues, exploitable bugs, etc that would ruin the experiences of a live server resulting in the loss of potential new players from outside the community.

There has not been a set date for the beginning of the closed beta, however, it will be soon. The players will be chosen randomly from the pool of submitted responses and will notified via PM with information once the closed beta is open.

The server will be reset once the closed beta ends. This will not offer an unfair advantage to testers.

To apply please use the google form below:

Update:

Screenshots & Videos of the closed beta will be allowed.​

'With a tip
and a tap,
Easter Eggs have been planted around the map!

Gather your friends,
to look for the hens,
and see if you can collect more than ten!

If you win,
you'll have a big grin,
and know the true meaning of Easter within!'

Happy Easter everyone! Whether you celebrate the holiday or not I hope you can join us for our SA:MP festivities throughout the Easter Weekend (14th - 16th). We'll be hosting special events in-game where everyone is welcome to take part. There will be an IC event taking place on Saturday at Santa Maria Beach (20:00 server time), a poster for this can be found here: http://www.mt-gaming.com/index.php?...around-ls-and-the-surrounding-counties.16905/

The Easter egg hunt is back: the admin team will be planting Easter Eggs across Los Santos and the surrounding towns. If you see one of these eggs simply walk up to it and type /collectegg. Inside the eggs you will find prizes ranging from common 24/7 items, materials, drugs, weapons, money or even just garbage. The player with the most collected eggs on Sunday 21:00 server time will receive a month of Gold VIP (If you already have VIP you can either pass it onto another player or extend your VIP time by a month). The development team have taken steps to ensure players are not able to cheat, however if you do happen to find an exploit please don't ruin the fun by abusing it.

Vehicle Auction! here are the vehicles being sold at auction over Easter:-

VIP Auction (will be taking place in VIP section of the forums):
Bandito
Hotring Racer (B)

In-Game free for all auction (will be taking place during the IC event on Saturday):...
I want to preface this by saying that this hasn't and will not affect the majority of players. It has recently come to our attention that a former admin is using their log access in an attempt to access player's accounts. This is done by searching through the logs for players who have used /changepass incorrectly (typed /changepass [password] instead of waiting for the dialogue box to pop-up). Here is what it looks like in the logs if you have not used /changepass correctly:

If you think you have used /changepass incorrectly at any point in the past then it's imperative that you log onto SA:MP and change your password to something else. We have already started reaching out to players who may be affected but you can never be too careful.

Here is how to correctly change your password:

I am very sorry for those who have already been affected by this. @Einar has already made sure that something like this cannot happen in the future. It's important to note that all player passwords are hashed and apart from not using /changepass correctly there is no way for admins to see player passwords.

Hello everyone!

First of all I would like to apologize for the silence on this project. We said we would create a development blog every month or so, and we never kept our end of that deal up. This isn't for lack of trying though, we have ran into problems while trying to develop our server.

Our developers ran into problems with Real life, Client issues and personal problems. Devs had to leave due to school/university, leaving the script untouched until recently.

We really did get off to a great start. Here is what we currently have:
  • Vehicle controls (engine, locks, doors)
  • Registration System (CEF)
    • Character Creation (CEF)
  • Taxi
  • Fisher
    Roleplay Commands
    • /me, /do, /ame
    • /low, /whisper,/shout
  • Proximity chat
  • /b, /n, /v /a
  • Admin System(in progress)
  • Faction system(in progress)
  • Phone Sytem
  • ATM System
That's all of the major things that has been done off the top of my head.

It's no secret we now lack developers due to the reasons stated above. Einar has began scripting now too, he's still learning c# as he goes along. We are looking to hire people so that we can get this moving quicker. We're offering to pay people who're able to assist us in getting it moving. I mentioned on a developer application that we're looking to hire people who're interested in the community. What I meant by that is ideally we would be looking to hire people who're interested in sticking around.

However, if an experienced developer just wants to script for us then take their payment and disappear that is okay too. Obviously as-long as they leave us with what we're paying for.

Did we announce it too early? Yes, I agree that we did. The admins took a vote at the time and overall it seemed like everyone wanted to announce it. We can dwell on that, or we can go forward and we're choosing to go forwards.

Kevin doesn't want to...

Hello everyone and welcome to our new project: MT-Gaming V-RP.

MTG is always looking to expand into new roleplay servers with more possibilities. We threw the idea of an ARMA 3 life server around for a while. We decided against it as we couldn't see ourselves moving on to voice roleplay.

GTA:N was brought to our attention by Chenko and a couple of other admins. We began playing with the idea of starting a roleplay server for ourselves. Chenko started right away scripting, without being asked to do so. We approached Kevin with the idea, he got right on board with it. Meaning we can now officially come out and say we're going to be opening our own roleplay server for GTA:N.

Chenko is leading the project on the development side of things. Crane and Ethan are assisting Chenko in the development of the server. Ethan & Crane are still developing SAMP, they haven't forgotten about it. They're only helping Chenko, their main focus is still SAMP so don't worry about that. The 7/8s will be leading the admin side of things. We hope to create a really unique script, so we can start off sprinting ahead of the competition. Chenko has already started on some major script features such as Custom Character Creation:

Say goodbye to the whole police department looking like twins! Now when you create a character you'll be able to fully customise your character. Just as you would in standard GTA:Online. That isn't the only thing! Now your characters are tied to your Social Club account. Meaning once you log-in with your Social Club account, you'll get a list of all your characters. Pick one, then log in. This means if you were to purchase VIP, it would be across all of your characters instead of just two like SAMP. This also means there will be little to zero ban evaders or hackers. If someone is banned,...
