As Daffy posted earlier, we've become aware of an attack on GTAStunting accounts. While at this point we are not aware of any compromise of our own database, the database of another forum that a number of our members frequent has leaked out into the public.
A malicious user has taken it upon himself to use passwords from this leak to gain access to a number of GTAStunting accounts that had the same password.
In an abundance of caution, we've decided to invalidate all GTAStunting passwords effective immediately. To gain access to your account, you will need to initiate a password reset
. We ask that you use a password that is both strong and unique to GTAS to help not only protect your own GTAS account, but to also protect other members as well as other accounts at different services you may have. It's also never a bad idea to change your passwords for other accounts, especially Email, every now and then.
If you're unsure how to create a good password, feel free to use the guide below. The comic was created by the fine folks at XKCD
Thanks everyone for your patience and understanding!

The best part is yesterday two people from YouTube read off the title and full descriptions of random videos for essentially 12 hours straight.
(starts at 8 minutes)
They didn't even pre-screen them. This one is a great example. http://www.youtube.com/user/YouTube?v=HGeMGqVKD6A&t=1h32m50s
(at 1 hour 32 minutes and 50 seconds)

« on: March 18, 2013, 05:56:05 PM »

Weird. The Anime group should have all the permissions of Regular Members so it should be showing the board. I've manually given the Anime group access to the section, can you check it now? Sorry about this!

I agree MTA is much better, however it's severely lacking in players. SA-MP currently has 7,045 players online compared to MTA's 2,536. In the end I'll probably end up creating servers for both but for right now SA-MP seems the easiest to setup and has a large selection of scripts to choose from.
EDIT: Do you still have your script? It might be salvageable.

Hey everyone. I just purchased a years worth of access to a server that should be more than capable of running a stable SA-MP (or MTA) server. I recall getting requests for GTAS to have it's own server. What would you guys want on it? Obviously some kind of stunting but what specific things and features? Pre-made maps? Teleports?

You can also use MTASA to set your resolution. It'll save to your set file so you'll have that resolution in single player and SAMP.

It's funny how a website that is like 5, 6, 7, 8 years old whatever had a hard time joining Rockstar Nexus which is how old?
Not sure what you mean by "hard time joining"?
Thanks to everyone who has donated! Sorry for not being as active these past few months. I've been trying to settle into college and at the same time manage work and getting RockstarNexus off the ground. As you've noticed, we now have a fancy bar!
I've got some ideas for GTAStunting in my head that I want to implement over the next few months. Probably won't happen until December though as that's when I'm on break from college.
Anyway, some of you were wanting premium benefits for donating. I'm starting today a trial of a "premium membership" that is subscription based. $5.45 for a month and $20.90 for year. The prices will probably change. I've given membership to those who have donated in the past, the bigger your donation was the longer subscription you get (might change too
). I'll be adding some things for you guys over the next few weeks along with an official announcement.http://www.gtastunting.net/index.php?action=profile;area=subscriptions
Also, note that this is just a trial for now. I/We reserve the right to end and/or change the premium program and benefits at any time without compensation. While it's unlikely that you'll loose everything in the event of a program termination or change, it's something that has to be said for legal reasons.
And those who still wish to donate anonymously/without Premium, the donation link is still below.

Hope that helps. For the record, how much does it take per year, overall, to keep the site running?
Thanks man! Currently it's around $150 excluding tax and domain fees a year.

- Despite Rockstar's marketing, the single player is a definitely a cover based game. 99% of the time shootdodging could have been fun, but it's not. Why? Because the enemies are so powerful, and because they're constantly sticking to cover. It would have been more fun if the difficulty had been balanced so you could shootdodge/run-and-gun your way through each part of the game.
- Story was somewhat predictable, and sometimes too far fetched.
- Lack of variety in progression (go to this room, go to next).
- Minor bugs (mainly rare audio skipping).
- Golden guns heavily break the pacing, and the game design works against you when trying to find them. If you're making a linear shooter, don't bore me by making me check every single corner of the level before I progress into the next section of the map.
Everything else! This game was awesome, I've never played a game that felt quite so cinematic. And any problems I had with the cover based nature of Single Player was alieviated by the multiplayer mode. The whole game is great. And mechanically, it's the most polished game Rockstar has ever published. However just in terms of gameplay variety, this game doesn't match up to other Rockstar games from this generation. GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption are simply more interesting to play, especially from a story perspective.
If Red Dead Redemption was a 10/10 and GTA IV was a 9.5/10, I'd have to give Max Payne an 8.5/10 for the single player, and 9.5/10 for the multiplayer.
On PC, I found myself rarely using cover for the three levels we played but on consoles I was using cover a lot more. It's an issue with consoles having the lack of precision controls that PCs have. I have yet to have "audio skipping" and I've beaten it on 360 and about half-way on PS3. I do agree about the golden guns but I guess it's better than having to buy them as DLC (Red Dead Redemption).
