Archive / Re: [Poll] Giving a small exp bonus to donators
« on: December 23, 2017, 03:30:03 am »
While normally I would say this is Pay2Win, and should be avoided, I do support this for a couple of reasons.

1. The bonuses are minimal. They aren't over powered
2. They don't really give you any huge advantage over the other people, as in, its not giving you a minigun or some crap like that where you can just murder all the suspects.
3. I can see more people donating to the server knowing they will get the exp boost.

I know @Blast3r and I have had some in depth conversations in the past about the risk-to-reward conundrum regarding Pay2Win, and I also am well aware of web hosting costs. Not to mention the recent rash of DDOS attacks going on through the MTA community (for obvious reasons, I'm not going into any details about victims or perpertators), so I know based on SAPDFR's up time that their hosting solution must be good.

Even though I cannot currently play in the server, I hope the $10 donation I'm going to make helps

Suggestion for (MTA, Forum, website):MTA

Suggestion: Change the spike strips from being in the player's inventory to being in the vehicle's inventory

Why should this be added?: If you look in real life, you'll never see officer's just carrying spike strips around. Aside from looking very odd, chances of officer injury from puncture wounds from the spikes would be very high. What I'd like to see is any vehicle accesible by officers at Senior Lead (or whatever the first rank you get access to spikes) and above have 2 sets of spike strips in them, as usually departments have 2 sets of "Stop Sticks" mounted in the trunk

Anything else you'd like to add?:Pretty please? Would free up my limited on-perosn inventory

[FR:SA] Suggestions / Re: Ticket option for traffic stop
« on: October 22, 2017, 02:53:31 pm »
Suggestion for (MTA, Forum, website): MTA

Suggestion: Since we have "ask for license" option I think we can replace "ask for ID" with "give a ticket/citation" as it was previously available. Perhaps if it's possible add option to select the price a) 50$ b) 100$ c) 200$ (something along those lines).

Why should this be added?: Because it was previously in the game and now there's 2 options to ask for identification. Besides it adds more realism. Letting the driver who ran the red light with just a warning ("release" option) is not okay.

Anything else you'd like to add?: MAKE SAPDFR GREAT AGAIN  8)

The reason for the "issue citation" thing being removed was because that script was never actually working. As far as the two options, if you look closely at the results, they are quite different.

Here's just asking for ID


And here's asking for driver's license


As you can see, when you ask for a driver's license, it also show's you if the license is falid, if it's expired, or if its invalid. Asking for ID doesn't give you that. Having the status of the license can be useful in determining if you are going to let the person go, or if you are going to arrest them

[FR:SA] Discussion / Taser vs Pepperspray
« on: October 17, 2017, 09:16:12 pm »
I can't remember who exactly was part of the convo, but yesterday we had a talk about which would you rather? Get shot with a taser, or be pepper sprayed. Seeing as I have had both happen to me (although the pepper spray was an environmental exposure, the spray was deployed in the room, but it still affected me) I would definately prefer a taser over the pepper spray. Judging by these reactions, what would you guys prefer?

Accepted Suggestions / Re: Tow Truck drop point for RCSD Station
« on: October 12, 2017, 05:57:03 pm »
From what I could tell, there isn't even a drop off point in LV, or SF. I could be wrong tho. From what I know, LSPD HQ is the only drop off point

Skins / Re: Toronto Police Uniform Skin
« on: August 04, 2017, 02:35:05 pm »
well guys, it turns out this mod would be pretty much useless for MTA, as it seems like it only modify's the CJcop skin, as its only the shirt and pants, not the actual uniform. I mean if you guys can deal with the fact it will more than likely only work in SP, I'll get you some screenies, but it seems pretty pointless

I still prefer the idea I floated a while back of having a "server rules page" appear upon logging in. You could easily X out of it, but then, if a suggestion such as this one is implimented and said player does violate the english only in global rule, then that right there would be grounds for punishment, as when logging in by clicking the X and continuing on to play on the server, that would be considered to acceptance of the rules. If you want @Tosfera I can make a separate suggestion thread about the "server rules" page idea

I'm thinking no, because as this is an english server, this would give people the impression we allow other languages in global. Plus I'm not sure, but I think something similar has already been suggested, but I could be wrong

Fwiw you really need to just throw in the towel on XP (and Vista, and in a few years, 7) and get something that's had reliable Windows support since 2014. I'm happy to agree XP was great.... in 2005. I doubt anyone who has a good reputation for knowing technology well would disagree with me on that.

Yeah about throwing in the towel, I only have this to say:
JK

And honestly, just because XP doesnt get any updates (unless you know the registry trick), doesnt mean its not still great. Let me give you a few reasons why


  • ATM's and Bank machines still use Windows XP Embedded
  • Because its no longer supported, there are no more updates. Less chance those updates will bug your computer (it happens, trust me on that one)
  • Because its older, its not as attractive for hackers to take out. Believe it or not, many individuals in cyber crime aren't just in it for the numbers, They are also in it for the skill it takes to pull off a hack. For them windows XP is tooo easy. They'd rather go after something like windows 8 or 10. (Thats right, come at me bitch, lol)

I'm going to start us off with something wayyyy old school by today's standards.

On November 20th 1985, the Microsoft Corporation released its first operating system with a graphical user interface. Windows 1.0 however was not itself an operating system, rather it was a operating environment that ran on top of MS-DOS. To be able to enter into the Windows 1.0 environment, you first had to enter the MS-DOS command to boot the system. Then you were greeted with the Windows 1.0 interface, shown below

So this thread is to show things from our past that seem absolutely prehistoric today. It could be technology related, automotive related, sport related, or anything else you could think of.

I only heard if this issue where if explorer.exe has the .bkpcpt extension, then the Internet Explorer is hijacked by a malware. Then again I could be wrong.

Try running some antimalware programs to see if some of these files are detected by the antimalware system.

I've ran 3 different scans. One with Panda Cloud Antivirus. One with ESET NOD32, and then one using my Bitdefender Live Rescue disk (able to scan outside the windows environment for any malware using rootkits)

On all 3 it came up with negative results, so unless the malware is using some zero-day that NONE of the vendors know about (highly unlikely as this is an older operating system), I have to conclude the files are not malicious
