Race for Rockets GTA2 Map page
If you join a game, GH copies the 2 to 6 player versions of the MMP files from the tempMMP folder (if they exist) into the GTA2 data folder. There was code to do that long ago but it was broken since one of its variables was being increased by some unrelated code.
If you were hosting a game and started it or clicked cancel but didn’t close the GTA2 network window then your status appeared as “GTA2” to you but as “-” to everyone else. It should now correctly display as “GTA2” to everyone else.
Fixed a hosting bug with MMP files that were only 1 character long (Error during launch: Invalid procedure call or argument – Line: 890)
GH create game form is now modal (if it’s open you can’t click on the main GH form)
If you pushed create game in GH while the create game form was already open then the list of maps didn’t load correctly and was mostly empty
I made an attempt to stop the messagebox popup bug that sometimes happens when you join a Hamachi game
/wi now displays the players GH version and some other information
/h /host /IP now display your external host name
HKLM\SOFTWARE\DMA Design Ltd\GTA2\Debug\play_replay registry key is deleted when you close GH. This stops GTA2 from always starting in replay mode (it could happen if you imported the registry key on Mal’s Race site or just ticked play_replay in GTA2 power manager)

Fixed some bugs that could make GTA2 start with a different map selected than what was chosen in GH
Added map name and MMP filename to the “You need to download and install this map” message
Kick messages now display name of the person/bot who performed the kick
Fixed a bug that changed your “hosting” status to “GTA2” whenever another player closed their hosted game
Fixed a bug that displayed a % sign in front of a halfops name
gta2gh.hamachi file is now saved in “documents” folder instead of the GH folder (this file is used to tell hamachi what network to join)
if gta2gh.hamachi can’t be created then hamachi.exe is run without any command line arguments
GH no longer tries to give the Hamachi window focus since it can take care of that on it’s own
removed twozero server from IRC list since it no longer works

NWP sent me a new screenshot, apparently exclusive. If you copy it, please link GTAMP.com as the source.
– thanks to NWP for submitting it
Fixed two bugs that only happened if you didn’t have a router or you had an IP on your PC that wasn’t in the internal/private IP range. One of those bugs caused all your hosted games to have a Y or N added to the MMP filename. This prevented all people from joining since it would say they didn’t have that map (this bug was introduced in v1.483). The other bug made all your games unlocked even if you password protected it (this bug was in most previous versions). If you see someone using v1.483 and GH incorrectly says you don’t have the map, tell them to update to v1.484.
Moved the flag images to the first column to fill in the blank space
GH can now detect if GTA2 is waiting for joiners. If GTA2 is not waiting for joiners then your game will be removed from the server list
New detection method should fix the bug that instantly removed some games just after being created
Added new status messages: “GTA2” (GTA2 is in your process list) and “hosting” (GTA2 is waiting for players to join).
Fixed “processing error: Index out of bounds Line: 3350” when trying to join a passworded game that no longer existed
Fixed a bug that sometimes incorrectly left the GTA2 folder box in settings empty
Hosting now works even if your GTA2 folder is write protected (common problem with Windows Vista)
Added context menu to richtextboxes (you can now copy, cut, paste etc using the mouse)
Browse for folder dialog now starts at GTA2 folder (if one was previously selected), instead of “My Computer” (doesn’t always work)
If wil.raw is missing, GH now displays a browse for folder dialog box and makes it more clear which folder is currently selected
“in game” status message removed since it wasn’t perfect. You will still see that status from people using older versions of GH.
GH now counts and displays the amount of time GTA2.exe was in the process list
changed colour of “was granted access” message from red to green
“GTA IV will contain a deep multiplayer mode, including deathmatch, team play (“Cops ‘n Crooks”), and some sort of ranked cooperative missions. Our source specifically talks about modes called “Deal Breaker,” “Bomb da Base,” and something called “Hangman’s Noose,” but gives no further details. The game will also feature ranked multiplayer races, likely across the game’s open roads of Liberty City.”
