a wiki for the history would certainly be a good idea but i think stunt methods should have video tutorials :P

A Wiki would only make sense if people is willing to contribute to it; try to be active at it as much as they can, of which I am unsure of. People has grown up and many are as busy as they can get, so the Wiki would be plain dead (or just manipulated by 3-7 persons).

I have a pretty solid memory of most of GTAS from 07-now for the most part so I wouldn't mind contributing.

In such case, I can create the Wiki in minutes and code a very stylish CSS design in one hour or two. The question is, besides us two, who else is contributing?

I'm down for whatever VC related stuff as long as it isn't crew history or stuff before 2006-2007 :P I could make some basic tutorials and what not, maybe help out with stuff like the forum award pages since that is just some manual work that requires no thinking at all.

I am actually very interested about creating this. May I have your Skype?

It appears the GTAS Article got deleted but from the best of my memory:

  • Andyroosoft started :aMpT: (late 03/early 04)
  • This eventually spiralled into the :aMpT: video database/stunting forums (2004)
  • Evolved into GTAStunting (2005)
  • Handed over to Aries late 06/early 07. If I remember right GTAS was also getting hacked around this time with members accounts being deleted.
  • GTAS switches from .com to .net domain as the domain lease expired and cost alot to acquire back then (mid 2007)
  • 08 came lots of downtime, temp foruming and a new host which came back up around Christmas 08
  • Aries passes GTAS over to Flatface/AJ, GTAS joins AJ's network RockstarNexus and is switched from IPB to SimpleMachines to save on hosting costs. (2009)

TGA also ran alongside it from Bloodymess as a way to host videos since Andyroo was hosting vids from his home connection which had a max of 50kb down lol. I think TGA got handed over to Samurai around 05/06?

aMpT forums 2004:

GTAS 2005:
http://web.archive.org/web/20051026170857/http://www.gtastunting.com/forums/index.php?act=idx

I think a few crews have history lists/vids and those inactive ones history could be roughly reconstructed from the crew sections. Anyone wanna hazard a guess at the first "proper" stunt vid - I always thought it was Decan's Stunt Reel or the first aMpT vid.

Decan's Stunt Reel was the first video as far as I'm aware, he said so himself on reddit.

https://www.reddit.com/r/cringe/comments/43wta9/man_with_biggest_head_in_the_world_attempts_to/czlz0l4

He made a comment on the video four months ago too:

Quote from: Jordan Liles
I edited this in 2003. Crazy that it's been 12 years. I'm pretty sure I made this in Ulead MediaStudio, but I've since moved on to Avid, and now I'm all Adobe. Also I know this video is kinda awful by today's standards in every way, but hey, gotta start somewhere!

... and silence
Decans Reel wasn't the first stunt vid ever. NK told me about some PS2 vids released before (one was called "extreme stunts" or something alike) and crappy PC ones.

I may write a history article since I've been here from the start. Not tomorrow though, got some shit to sort out IRL.
A question - who's got control of dead facebook and twitter pages ?

If that's extreme stunts then it came out a month after Decan's Stunt Reel, obviously there'd be videos made before then but Decan's is the first one we can reference to since finding anything from before then will be a struggle. I did a search for "stunt video 2003 site:gtaforums.com" and most of the results are roughly around the July/August 2003 mark whereas Decan's was just at the end of June.

nah, this vid seems to be made on pc while the one NightKnight spoke about was ps2 before pc version was released.

I've found Decan's stunt reel topic on gtaforums
http://gtaforums.com/topic/102842-most-powerful-vice-city-stunt-video-ever/
it says it's the best video yet, so yeah, obviously it's not the first. I recall similar description on planetgrandtheftauto back then.

Yeah there probably was videos before that but Decan's is the only remaining video file from that time period that could be used as an example in a stunting history wiki.
