How to Set Up a SAMP Server (including Pawno) Full Version
SAMP (San Andreas Multiplayer) is a popular online multiplayer mod for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas that allows players to create and join servers with custom game modes, maps, vehicles and more. One of the most important tools for creating a SAMP server is Pawno, a simple and lightweight script editor that comes with the SAMP Windows Server package.
In this article, we will show you how to set up a SAMP server (including Pawno) full version on your Windows PC. You will need the following files:
The latest version of GTA: San Andreas installed on your PC.
The latest version of SAMP Client from here.
The latest version of SAMP Windows Server from here.
A text editor of your choice, such as Notepad or Notepad++.
Follow these steps to set up your SAMP server:
Extract the SAMP Windows Server package to a folder of your choice. You should see a folder called \"server\" with several files and subfolders inside.
Open the \"server.cfg\" file with your text editor. This is the main configuration file for your server. You can edit various settings, such as server name, password, port, max players, gamemode, filterscripts, plugins and more. For more information on each setting, see here.
Open the \"gamemodes\" folder inside the \"server\" folder. This is where you can store your custom game mode scripts. A game mode is a set of rules and features that define how your server works. For example, you can create a roleplay, deathmatch, racing or stunt game mode. You can use one of the default game modes that come with the SAMP Windows Server package, such as \"grandlarc\" or \"freeroam\", or you can create your own using Pawno.
Open the \"pawno\" folder inside the \"server\" folder. This is where you can find Pawno, the script editor for SAMP. You should see a file called \"pawno.exe\". Double-click it to launch Pawno.
In Pawno, you can create a new script by clicking on File > New or open an existing script by clicking on File > Open. You can also use the function list on the right side of the window to browse through the available functions and include files. To learn more about Pawno and how to write scripts for SAMP, see here.
Once you have written or edited your script, you can compile it by clicking on Run > Compile or pressing F5. If there are no errors or warnings, you should see a message saying \"Compilation successful.\" in the output window at the bottom of Pawno. The compiled script will be saved as an \".amx\" file in the same folder as your \".pwn\" file.
Copy or move your compiled script (\".amx\" file) to the \"gamemodes\" folder inside the \"server\" folder. Make sure to rename it if necessary to match the name of your game mode in the \"server.cfg\" file.
Close Pawno and go back to the \"server\" folder. Double-click on \"samp-server.exe\" to start your server. You should see a console window with some information about your server.
To join your server, launch GTA: San Andreas and select SAMP from the main menu. Click on Add Server and enter your server's IP address and port (the default port is 7777). Click on Connect and enter your nickname and password (if any). You should be able to see and play on your server.
Congratulations! You have successfully set up a SAMP server (including Pawno) full version on your PC. You can now customize your server further by adding filterscripts, plugins 0efd9a6b88
