Wanted: Pawn Developers

posted by Fireburn on Wednesday, April the 22nd at 9:58 PM


Hi there,

As you know, developing isn't going superfast the last weeks, the most important reason for this being that since Jay left we lost the most active developer. That is why we, as 2.x Development Team, are now searching for Pawn coders. If you are interested in joining a project played by more than 1000 people every day and you know Pawn, then this is something for you! We are looking for people who would like to be developing actively.

Requirements
- Good knowledge of Pawn
- A view, opinion and enough fantasy to bring in ideas yourself, as well as the ability to accept that your idea will not be implemented
- Having a fair amount of time available
- You are able to work in a team with other developers

If you are interested, and got the time, please send an e-mail to dev@sa-mp.nl , including the following information:

Nickname:
(Pawn-)Coding Experience:
Your motivation:

Please note, at the moment bugfixing 2.90 has the highest priority, so until we fixed all bugs, we won't add new features.

On behalf of the Las Venturas Playground Development Team,
Fireburn

The temporary revert to 2.85

posted by Fireburn on Wednesday, April the 1st at 8:54 PM


Hi all,
As you may have read in this announcement, we are reverting our gamemode back to 2.85, this evening, around 9:00 (GMT).
We are doing this because we found some major bugs in the gamemode, which could make the database corrupted. Also, there are some other major bugs, including servercrashes, client crashes, and gamemode bugs. We are going to fix this as soon as we can, but it seems this could still take more than a week. There are some serious issues with the gamemode, so the only way we can make sure everything will work fine is by taking this big measure. We are sorry to let you down, but we will try to fix this as soon as possible, so you can go back to playing 2.90.
We ask everyone with extensive knowledge of MySQL or pwn to contact me, by sending a personal message on the forum or on IRC.

On behalf of the Las Venturas Playground Management and Development Team,
Fireburn,
Lead developer 2.x

Reverting back to LVP 2.85 [And we are back again!]

posted by Sander on Wednesday, April the 1st at 5:21 PM


A "small" but a very unpleasant announcement.

Due to a few unresolvable bugs (Major lag and crashes), LVP needs to revert back to LVP 2.85. Account data can't be converted back to the old system. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The date/time when we will switching back will be announced later this day in a bigger and more explaining post in the Development blog.
