Nice Works! thanks for sharing


Holy shit. This is amazing!


thats a fucking release ! :slight_smile:


Awesome. Love it. Good job.


thanks man it means alot that you like it, if you see anything stupid in the code feel free to say something i know i left a few unused natives in there


Will do. (20 characters)


Outstanding release! This will add so much to RP…


Thats awesome <3


I don’t know if this is happening to anyone else, but I can see the camera/mic, but no one else can see the object… Only I can see it…

lol… Now i’m embarrassed.


i don’t believe there’s an issue with sync correct me if i’m wrong


The Weazel News part of it flashes for me is there a way to fix that?


Now my stuff isn’t special anymore awawawawaw cries :tired_face:


Thanks Diamond for release


Great Release, Kudos !


If you want to remove the Overlay delete these on client.lua

local scaleform = RequestScaleformMovie(“security_camera”)
local scaleform2 = RequestScaleformMovie(“breaking_news”)
on line 89 and 90

while not HasScaleformMovieLoaded(scaleform) do
while not HasScaleformMovieLoaded(scaleform2) do
on lines 93-98


Wish there was a way to have text go across the camera…


it is indeed possible i was thinking of just having breaking news at the bottom
