READ FIRST - VC:MP 0.4 Public Beta #2
« on: July 31, 2013, 10:34:07 pm »



There will be a public beta test of VC:MP 0.4 on Aug. 6th.
Please read the entire thread first.



Testing Information
A second public beta of VC:MP 0.4 will be held on August 6th beginning at 14:00 GMT. This test will last at least 24 hours and will continue until the beta testing team believes that enough information for bugfixes has been collected. Beta testers and developers may ask you to do certain actions in order to find bugs or other issues in the server, and in those cases, you should do as they say. Otherwise, you should play as your normally would on any other server.

The gamemode will be a classic Team Deathmatch server. There will be multiple classes to select from, including a free-for-all team. Members of the same team (excluding the FFA team) cannot attack each other. There is no objective. Other commands have been added to accommodate stunting.




Installation Files
Download

A shortcut will be created on your desktop by the public beta installer to automatically join the test server. Please make sure that you install the public beta to a fresh/new installation of Grand Theft Auto Vice City to eliminate the possibility of crashing occurring due to any modifications you may have on your installation of Vice City.

As this is the second beta of VC:MP 0.4, the main goal is to continue to find and patch bugs and crashes in both the client and the server.

Some useful commands:

T - Chatbox
F5 - Scoreboard
TAB - Console
V- Enter vehicle as passenger
Alt + Enter - Switch between fullscreen and windowed mode
/reconnect - Typed into the chatbox. Will automatically attempt to reconnect the client to the server if the server happens to lose connection.

Reporting Bugs
Create a new thread with a brief description of the bug and put the tag "[Bug]" in the title. Include details such as how often you can reproduce or recreate the bug (always, sometimes, or rarely), what you were doing when the bug happened, and what you think caused the bug.

A bug report might look like this:
Quote
Subject: [Bug] Can't shoot invisible players



Description
Whenever a player is invisible, I can't shoot them.

Reproducible
Always

What you were doing when the bug happened
I was going to the other team's point in a Voodoo. I got out of the car and someone on the other team went invisible, so I shot them when I started fading.

What you think caused the bug
Being invisible or desync from the Voodoo



Reporting Crashes
The server is configured to collect crash information from players, but in order to better track these issues, please follow these instructions as well.

Crash information will appear in the folder you install VC:MP into. For example, if you installed VC:MP into C:\Program Files\Vice City Multiplayer, then there will be crashlogs in this location:

C:\Program Files\Vice City Multiplayer\04beta_b2t1\crashlogs

The top of each file will look like this:
Code: [Select]
Address: 0040286E error C0000005
Make a new thread with the tag "[CRASH]" and the address, so that the name of your thread looks like [CRASH] 0x0040286E. Include the same details you would make for a bug report, like so:

Quote
Subject: [CRASH] 0x0040286E



Reproducible
Always

What you were doing at the time of the crash
Shooting an invisible player after I got out of a Voodoo

What you think caused the crash
Desync from invisible players or people getting out of Voodoos

Are you using the Steam version?
No.

The download link will both be posted as a reply to this thread and added to the original post shortly prior to the beginning of the beta test, and will be hosted on VRocker-Hosting.

There is no reason to install 0.4 into your Vice City folder, but if you really want to, installing it there again will work.
