So I recently found this awesome mod for GTA San Andreas that takes most of the concepts from DayZ ARMA2 mod and places them into the San Andreas environment: http://dayz-mta.net

Has anyone played or heard of it? It might be a little difficult to setup as it requires San Andreas + MultiTheftAuto (Free Multiplayer), you then connect to the server running the game at: 176.65.141.184:22003

If you have a steam version of San Andreas you will need to downgrade it to version 1.0 to get MultiTheftAuto to work for it, it may require the use of a no cd executable. I had the same issue with a retail 1.0.1, I wrote an in depth guide about the game

There is also this info graphic guide that I made: http://i.imgur.com/HLJhw.jpg (with help from /vg/)

Anyways it's well worth the effort to setup the game and the game runs on older computer quite well. I never tried DayZ ARMA2 so this is the next best thing, plus the whole San Andreas environment is incredible with 80-100 players.

Let me know if you give it a try or if you ever played it before.

Here is a screenshot of me killing a zombie while it was raining earlier: http://i.imgur.com/cPV5c.jpg

Thanks for sharing! Always wanted something like this in SA :D

Yeah it's not that well known because only 1 server runs it, the people developing it. There are a few bugs and such but the game is also fun as hell to play.

that is cool as fuck. GTA + DayZ(which I don't own, but looks like I would pour hours in if I did) = blown mind. and boner :)

Yeah it has awesome gameplay and the SA city fits well with the zombie theme.

Server is no longer avaiable, I think. ;[

How are you connecting? Just put this mtasa://176.65.141.184:22003 in the MTA browser bar and hit connect and it works, just connected myself.

That sucks, the server is located in Germany but I've never had an issue with connection from North America.

could you upload these 2 files somewhere? :D
the server is offline ;[

But here is the latest resource directory: http://www24.zippyshare.com/v/11844816/file.html

You need to unzip DayZ.zip into ...MTA San Andreas 1.3\mods\deathmatch\resources\DayZ

If you can't connect it might be your connection or something.

Good luck.

You are right, it went offline. This happens sometimes when they do development stuff, it will be back. They released a new update yesterday so I assume they are doing more dev stuff.

Today at 07:10:44 pm - KingZyrex: When will it be back online btw?
Today at 07:24:17 pm - Marwin: its not off.
Today at 07:32:26 pm - KingZyrex: It's saying offline for me for some reason..
Today at 07:39:47 pm - Marwin: idk i am not at home ill be back in 1 hour.
Today at 08:53:49 pm - SHEN: you should really do something about the lag, cap the players or upgrade the server.
Today at 09:07:33 pm - Marwin: man i do, but i am not at home atm.


We must wait until he restarts the server ;\

I was actually able to connect just now, I think there maybe something wrong with certain connections.

Protox

(1 year ago)

yeap, now I can't connect to any server.
EDiT: I had to reinstall MTA to see the server list :|
Still connection timed out.

does it work with sa-mp?

Yes it works for MTA San Andreas Multiplayer, all you need to do is connect to the server. It is down for now but should be back eventually. They take it down occasionally for development reasons and there was a new patch yesterday.

Protox

(1 year ago)

He was asking for SA-MP, not MTA:SA.

Kuziz

MTA:SA has SA-MP inself - depends what kind of MTA installation type you choose.
But you should install full-MTA.

samozwaniec

(1 year ago)

Oh my bad, yes you need the full-MTA release: http://mirror.multitheftauto.com/mtasa/main/mtasa-1.3.1.exe

Forgot about SA-MP.

Server is down. :/

Love the concept, wanted to try, but the server is dead :|

It will be back, they take it down for admin stuff once in a while.

This seems like a great idea. Will try in a moment.

Does this work with steam version of SA?

I read about it and I didn't actually understand what I should do

Okay I don't have the steam version but I have a retail cd version which is also 1.01 (same as steam version). This is what I did to get it to work.

  1. Downgrade to SA 1.0, download http://www.sundergaming.com/FastDL/gta.sa-downgrader.zip, unzip it and run it. a) more info here for step #1: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1952458
  2. Install MTA - http://mirror.multitheftauto.com/mtasa/main/mtasa-1.3.1.exe
  3. Start MTA and connect to: 176.65.141.184:22003

I had 1 more step after I did the downgrade the game stopped starting and was complaining about my CD not being in drive, even when I had the retail CD inside my only drive. I had to download a no cd executable to make it work. I don't want to post links but check my first post and find the image guide there is more info about that there. Basically in some cases you will NEED a no cd for legitimate reasons, because the CD is version 1.01 and the downgrade makes your version 1.0 so when it checks your CD it finds 1.01 and start complaining about the wrong files. Copy protection sucks sometimes, and without version 1.0 SA you cannot play MultiTheftAuto. But try the first 3 steps first.

They restarted the server & now it asks for the password. There are 18 people online, where do you get the password?
EDIT: Seems to work without a password now.

It was devs, they do it sometimes to for development purposes.

Nice. To bad i don't have San Andreas right now, might get it later

I found a copy in Walmart for $5 a few years back, they often sell older pc games in the discount bins. But mostly it's versions and expansions of The Sims.

Protox

Yeah i know, i get games sometimes from those bin..

So did anyone get a chance to play the game yet? What was your experience like?

I love you for putting this up in here.

I had so much fun, I played to like 3 AM, and I am just about to go and play some more.

Epic, just epic, even in Alpha I was so surprised it came so well.

If you by any chance know the admin (Marwin) could you please tell him to contact me somehow? You can give him my steam acc, if he has one.

Cheers mate !

P.S. Ingame nickname is: Argamore :)

I played for quite a while, and will play more when my friend sets it up as well...

Overall it's a good idea, there are a few bugs and lags every once in a while, but it's Alpha so I wasn't expecting anything amazing.
What I've noticed so far is that it is extremely easy to find weapons, good ones too. I died about 4 times and got the best shotgun in every life. It could provide more guidance for things such as setting up fire/tents but it is possible to figure it out yourself or by asking someone.

I'd also say that zombies are too damn easy to kill, you can outrun them in a couple of seconds, sneak right behind their back and so on... The real threat in this mod is other people, they don't seem friendly and even if you just spawn they will start punching the hell out of you. I'd suggest making zombies more difficult to kill, so players actually have to cooperate to defeat them easier.

I'll check this out when I have some time, didn't know you could patch steam version so you can play mp...

Once you patch the steam version you can run MTA, and this mod is just one of them. There tons and tons more, some servers have like 300 people on them various type of game mods like racing, rpgs, etc. I just discovered it myself for the first time but they community is pretty big because the game runs on so many different low end computers.
