If you encounter issues while trying to connect to SA-MP servers, consider the following troubleshooting steps:
Firewall and Antivirus #
Ensure that your firewall or antivirus software is not blocking the SA-MP client’s connection. Check your firewall settings and add an exception for the SA-MP client if necessary.
Server Capacity #
Some servers may have a maximum player capacity, and if the server is full, you won’t be able to join until a slot becomes available. Try connecting to a different server or wait for an open slot.
Game Version Compatibility #
Ensure that your SA-MP client and the server you are trying to connect to are running the same version of the game. Mismatched versions may prevent you from joining the server. Check the server’s website or forum for information on the compatible SA-MP client version.
