This function gives you various version information about MTA and the operating system.

Syntax

table getVersion ( )

Required Arguments

None.

Returns

Returns a table with version information. Specifically these keys are present in the table:

  • number: the MTA server or client version (depending where the function was called) in pure numerical form.
  • mta: the MTA server or client version in textual form.
  • name: the full MTA product name.
  • netcode: the netcode version number.
  • os: can be "Windows", "Linux", "FreeBSD" or "OpenBSD".


Example

This example will make a script compatible with only version 1.0:

function setHoboSkin ( playerSource )
  local version = getVersion ( )
  if version.number < 256 then -- MTA 1.0 version number is 0x0100
    setPlayerSkin ( playerSource, 137 )
  else
    setElementModel ( playerSource, 137 )
  end
end
addCommandHandler ( "hobo", setHoboSkin )
