I think the chat box should be made slightly longer horizontally.

Also is there any estimated release date for 0.4?

Windows Vista compatibility.

Today I got a brand new laptop with Windows Vista, transferred most of my stuff. Downloaded VC:MP just earlier and when I close the VC:MP client I get literally 100's of access violation alerts for some reason.

Vista is just... Weird.. But good at the same time, especially for what I do.

ye vista is weird.. few of my mates tried out giving admin rights. no help there..

anyway, peds you say.. aah. so, walking as a ped.. what exactly does that mean??
for peds, i was wondering, have CPU players (like the BOTS in CS) that way, they could be integrated kinda easily, at the expense of bandwidth. (having 10's of bots + the players on server.. large lag) however, i dont see how having a ped system synced could use less..  :-\

Ever played SA:MP? I mean that ALT-button, that you can walk different.

And bots is a good idea (Only its possobile now in mIRC in a difficult way)

But.. in the config, one or two is not so bad?

Having bot players ingame is almost impossible unless someone reverse engineers the whole Vice City (at least a year of work even for experienced reverse engineers) and then rewrites it into a server version, which would need a powerful host machine.

Right, and i suppose it also increases the download bandwith usage by players a lot, so the game would get some extra lag for those with slower internet connections.

Lol, a little problem compared to what I said. ;D

Juppi

Hehe, well all pure speculation since its not gonna happen

BTW, i dont remember if anyone has asked already, but are 'old-fashioned' mIRC scripts going to work in 0.4? Or just pawn scripts?

Well I use Vista business edition and I'm level 10 admin on thegtaplanet.net RPG/DM  server and I had no problem setting admin level.

About walking like peds, I occasionally play VC using my PS3 six axis controller and I can walk using that but according to what a friend on server said, it wasn't in sync.
The walking feature in San Andreas comes with San Andreas, that isn't just in SA:MP. Vice City doesn't have the button to enable walking but I suppose it could be done but I think it'd take quite a long time to do if it can be done.

I think matthiasvegh was referring to this problem, and mentioned running vc:mp (or vc) as an administrator didnt solve the problem.

About walking style, i think its quite unuseful. Instead of single little details like it, my opinion is that the devs should concentrate more to the techical side: to get the game more stable, and giving server runners more modding possibilities (but not with the cost of reliability). Those little details are a good addition to the later (?) versions of 0.4, like adding some animations in 0.3z was. Thats my opinion.

iKlipse

Yeah I agree, I think making it more stable is the thing to focus on most.

I want 0.4 to have entering vehicles to be synced. eg: you can see other people opening vehicle doors :D
