good bye sa-mp :(
« on: June 07, 2008, 08:20:04 pm »
Quote from: www.sa-mp.com
SA-MP Closure - 7th June 2008
On the 2nd of June 2008 former SA-MP developer 'Jacob', who also goes by the name Simon Jacob Dis, decided to form a hacking group called Zytronics. The purpose of this group was to leak parts of the SA-MP source code and confidential information online and take full credit for it.

With a hacking group such as Zytronics in control of the SA-MP source code we can no longer guarantee the safety and security of SA-MP clients and servers, and for this reason we now advise against using this software.

A deal was initially reached with Jacob, after he published the SA-MP client source code online, that he would delete the SA-MP source code and information he had access to and remove himself from any involvement. Being the sort of person that he is, Jacob did not keep this agreement. He would later go on to assert we had no valid copyright to our own source code and he was free to steal it if he wished.

Information
Mods like SA-MP can not operate while people like Jacob and his Zytronics group freely break the law and show complete disregard for intellectual property rights and the security, safety and privacy of online gamers. For this reason, I recommend that action should be taken against him and his Zytronics group to protect any future game mods from being victimized like SA-MP has been.

After looking up the WHOIS info on website that was published with the source code, I found the following information:

TRC Roofing and Siding
3811 Rogers Avenue
Fort Smith, Arkansas 72901
United States
479-561-9572
479-287-9459
email: cmcjacob@gmail.com, jacob@trcroofingandsiding.com

Jacob appears to have registered his Zytronics group under the name of his business TRC Roofing and Siding.

While there are clearly other people who were involved in the escalations which lead up to this, Jacob has taken the final action which requires SA-MP’s closure.

I’ll most likely be interested in taking action against Jacob myself at some point. By removing the copyright notices from all of the SA-MP source files before he leaked them, he basically deprived the entire team credit for the years of work they had put in. This is unacceptable. If you find more information about this Jacob person please e-mail it to team@sa-mp.com

Background
SA-MP was one of the most popular online game modifications ever created. From the website statistics there appears to have been between 100,000 and 130,000 active players at the time of writing – from almost every country on the planet. Record concurrent player counts were reached earlier in 2008 with over 9000 concurrent players and over 8 million downloads have been recorded.
