General Questions and Answers
I need a Server to play on, how can I find one?
A: No, we've taken steps to prevent people using these mods. It is not fair against other players to play with adjusted cars or whatever mod you're using. Another thing is that most of the time it will cause crashes to other players and yourself. Please do not use mods with MTA. Use a clean installation of VC to properly play MTA.
A: No, you can't use cheats with MTA. The same as with mods, it is not fair against other players so we've disabled the cheats.
A: Please do not use trainers with MTA. We've taken steps to prevent people using trainers with MTA, because it simply is not fair to other players. It will also cause crashes to yourself and other people.

Do I need a lot of bandwidth to play MTA, or is a dial-up connection
The server is using a LOT of bandwidth, what is wrong?

A: This cheat-prevention doesn't fully works. Mind that MTA is still in Beta state and we're trying to eliminate as much cheating as possible. It could be that you're running trainers or other external VC-modifying programs such as speedmeters, etc. Please close these programs and try again.
