This is a proof of concept and is not indicative of the final release, if that ever happens.

Frequently Asked Questions

Click on each question to show the answer...
Why is this site so unprofessional unlike the actual Donut Team site?

'Cause this is a leak and isn't to be taken for srs. While all our community rules apply when playing multiplayer or using our Discord chats, this site is not to be considered part of Donut Team. So we will swear, make jokes and laugh at everything. It's all in good bad fun.
When and if multiplayer is ever officially released (not leaked), we will take this far more seriously. Until then, you shouldn't take it seriously either.

Where can I get The Simpsons: Hit & Run to play this?

You can buy it on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Simpsons-Hit-Run-Pc/dp/B0000A0V3B.

How do I get my mod added to Lucas' Simpsons: Hit & Run Multiplayer?

UPDATE: Because everyone was bitching, we now hacked it in to run any mod in multiplayer. This will split you into separate sessions depending on what mods you use.
There's probably issuses with this, who knows. Some mods may not work with multiplayer for technical reasons, maybe do something about that.

We are not accepting mod requests for multiplayer. If it is a mod that adds interesting things (such as cars, characters and maps/map tweaks) and a lot of people actually want it, we'll consider it.
If you have gotten a mod added so far, congrats, you tricked a delirious idiot (sorry loren).

How do I start a mission with my friends?

You can't. This doesn't feature missions at the moment, maybe in the future, maybe not.

Where's the chat?

If we were planning on adding one, it would be soon™ - but because we have no plans, we don't have one. Srry bb.

What special keybinds are available?

X View Players

Y Drop Waypoint

>. Previous Character Model

?/ Next Character Model

I Toggles car nametags

J Toggles speedometer

F10 Toggles full screen map

Why are you leaking this now?

We had $63 in our DigitalOcean account and said "y nat". - In all seriousness, because we haven't made any meaningful progress on multiplayer in ages and wanted people to give it a shot for themselves to show them they're not missing out. We would love to improve upon this and make it something that people could play, but at the moment what you see is what you get.

Why are you calling this an "official leak"?

Because this is not an official release. Lucas has made something amazing, though this is not to the best of any of our abilities and we would not like to call this a "release". This is a leak, this is like pre-alpha. This is a proof of concept.

I have a complaint.
Why doesn't it work with my executable?

UPDATE ANSWER:
Multiplayer now works with non-English versions of the game. Still fucked if you want to use best sellers.

ORIGINAL ANSWER:
message Because this experimental and rushed.

Why is there a typo in the previous question?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Why won't anyone play with me!!!? they're unindiscluding me!

Probably because people are sleeping, at school/work, doing something better with their lives (basically anything, root canal maybe?). like i dont know, git gud.
There's one fucking server, they're probably not playing elsewhere...

What the hell is the "Cheater" tag?

The cheater tag is a joke tag we add to players when they do something they shouldn't be able to do without cheats/cheat keys.
The server sometimes disables them.

My school and/or work blocked this site! How will I ever play?!?

You shouldn't be using Lucas' Simpsons: Hit & Run Multiplayer at school and/or work!

u could try the ip tho: 104.236.86.25
if that fails, lol sorry.

Can I has server executable?
So actual reasons:
  1. The server is extremely broken, it will crash a lot and you shouldn't want to have to deal with that.
  2. We're always (this is kind of a lie) doing things to the server and it would probably have to update a lot.
  3. The more the merrier! It's always easy to get in a game when there is only one host.
  4. Reason #4 goes here, totally does, yep.
  5. We didn't have to give you this in the first place you ungrateful bastards. Go make your own if youre so high and mighty :^)
  6. I wonder if anyone is even reading these anymore.
  7. What could you even do with it if you had it? All the functionality of multiplayer is available in ours.
  8. Donut Team does not believe in segregation
  9. ok im done.
Why is this not a "release"?!

The Gods have spoken!

Asseration failed?!?!@?!?!?!? What do I do?!

message If you see this, don't tell us. We don't want to know.
Click "Ignore". If the game seems even more broken than it usually is, restart your game.
It does that, get used to it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

wtf why is some character showing up as an error

message If you see this, don't tell us. We don't want to know.
Click "Ignore" a bunch of times unless you get sick of that. If so, click "Abort" and restart your game.
It does that, get used to it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I just saw a car with no driver wth

If you see this, don't tell us. We don't want to know.
Once the driver gets out of the car, it usually fixes it I think.
It does that, get used to it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

oh my god im part of donut team now?!

lol no
Users sometimes show up as the wrong role and/or realname. It appears to be random server memory, which is like scary. This is because the server is shit.
UPDATE: this might be fixed? actually tell us if you see this happen again.
As always: It does that, get used to it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Will this site ever be removed?

We don't intend to keep this version online forever, we'd like to release a better one. But until then, I guess this is here. That doesn't mean this site will always be hosted, it costs money to keep this server up. So if it isn't up sometime in the future, sorry?

tl;dr

Why can't I connect?
One of the following reasons is possible, but...
  • The server was taken down for maintenance, we should announce this on Discord if we do. maybe?
  • The server crashed, that happens more than it should (at all).
  • An issue with your firewall? Maybe...
  • We took it down because we realised this was a travesty.
  • The big scary lawyers attacked us in a dark ally; we're probably each in several garbage bags by now.
If you can't connect and it's been down for a few minutes, tell us in #shar-online-mp and we'll look into it.
Why am I invisible?
Who knows, just cycle your character a bit.
Why do I need my Discord token?

The short version: 'cause- for- security. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The long version: This is to prevent griefing and impersionation. You can press the "X" key to view who's actually who. Users abusing rules while playing will still face the same consequences.
