Amongst the Multiplayer Madness

GTAGaming.com - Modifications | @ 02:25 PM CST | By Zidane
It's about time to get back into the multiplayer mood, and take a brief look at the good online multiplayer mods that are coming out/already released.


Multi Theft Auto
Multi Theft Auto is the most common GTA online multiplayer mod, mainly because it was the first real dedicated, and stable mod. They've come a long way since the first test release which was for GTA3 back in early 2003. Current releases support GTA3, Vice City, and soon, San Andreas. Their current versions are extremely stable and user friendly, with tons of in game options and additions. Very amazing stuff you should really check out. Latest releases and previews are listed on the official sites below.

MTA: VC Official Site
MTA: SA Official Site

*They've also been interviewed by GTA-online.fr, you can check out this interesting read here.


gtaTournament
gtaTournament is also up there in the "great online mods" category. Their latest release, which has kept me interested for a while, is for San Andreas, and it's quite stable (minus the rare "socket error" crashes), but besides that, this online mod is pretty fantastic. You're able to use most mods with this one, and there are also different online scripts you can use, which allow you to spawn vehicles, teleport to locations in game, etc. The current version has a couple of drawbacks, like you can only play as CJ, some of the animations are not synchronized too well, and it can often crash out of nowhere, but their next version will be a big step up from the current. Latest version(s) available through their official site, listed below.

gtaT Official Site


GTA Rumble
GTA Rumble is crazy stable, and the animations are better synchronized than gtaT, but custom scripts are not built in, that enable you to teleport, spawn vehicles, etc. Though, weapons are enabled and they work quite well, and when vehicles are demolished they re-spawn back to their original places, but sometimes that creates issues with other players' games. If you're into deathmatch type play, and crazy dogfights in the air, this is probably the online multiplayer mod for you.

**Also, thanks very much to the GTAGaming visitors who have kept me updated on these mods over time.**

**On Another note, GTAGaming staff will usually use a different name while playing these mods, so if you see an impersonator, please kill them for us! :p**

They should all just work together and make a good mod. And plus, GTARumble sucks as a name.

Yeah, a synchorized GTA online experience would rule... but I seriously doubt they would ever do that.

When I first saw this, my jaw dropped to the floor. I thought MTA SA had FINALLY been released. Sadly, I was wrong. :(

That's alright, thanks for the huge list of multiplayer stuff, I am off to try some out now, I guess.
