Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

You can find many 'Frequently Asked Questions' below. If you have any you'd like to see added, let me know.

Who owns and develops Mike's Cops and Robbers?
I am the founder, owner and generally sole developer of MCNR (however do get some help from others such as @M3E6 and @ChrisAg).

When did MCNR launch?
MCNR launched publicly on the 22nd of April 2019. The reason for this launch date was to coincide with my previous server's (Movieserver) anniversary.

How long did MCNR take to develop?
MCNR has been in development for a number of years on and off. The base script was started in 2012 but most of the development was done in 2016-2019, with a strong development period in 2018 and early 2019. Development took so long as I never thought I would actually launch it as a public server, it was more of just a hobby for myself.

How often is MCNR updated?
I aim to update the server often with bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements and have a bigger content-rich updates less often.
The size of updates and the amount of time between them depends on many factors, such as how many features are being added, how complex they are, if there's any complex issues to fix, and how much spare time I have (that is always the limiting factor). I have two full time jobs working 7 days a week, so working on MCNR is like a third job I have to try and find time for.

Check out the latest updates here:,3.0.html

Does MCNR celebrate holidays and events?
MCNR hosts special 'seasonal events' for Christmas, Halloween and Easter. These will be announced on the website, forums, and Discord. They generally last for around 3 weeks.
The events include loot boxes, collectables items, door-to-door deliveries, candy leaderboard and more.

Outside the seasonal events, staff will organise events often such as Protect the President and Deathmatches. Check #events on Discord for info, or the 'Events' board on the forum.

Who are the MCNR staff?
You can check out the staff list here:,15.0.html

Can I be staff?

Apply to become a helper
Apply to become a tester
Apply to become a moderator

How do I join the MCNR SA-MP server?
Click this link to launch SAMP:

What versions of SA-MP are supported?
Older versions of SA-MP are no longer supported, we recommend connecting with 0.3.7 R5, but accept R4 version as well.

Is SA-MP mobile/Android supported?
Since 0.3.7 is no longer supported, clients wanting to connect via Android/mobile versions of SA-MP will no longer be able to play.

This may change in the future, and older versions of SA-MP may be allowed again.

What are the server rules?,20.0.html

What are the forum rules?,18.0.html

How can I find out more about the server and its features?

In-depth guides:,18.0.html

Can I donate to MCNR?
Yes! We rely on donations to keep the server and forum running and bringing new updates to the server.

Please see for details on how to donate, and a list of bonuses that you can get for donating. Currently donations are only accepted through PayPal.

Do you have any social media?
Yes! We are on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube

Do you have a Discord server?

Do you get any reward for Discord Nitro boosting the MCNR Discord server?
Yes, you get $10,000 in-game every day (irl) that you are boosting the MCNR Discord server.

NOTE: We are unable to detect if you have 1 or 2 boosts active.

Who hosts MCNR and where?
MCNR is hosted in France with SoYouStart (OVH).

Why is the player capacity of the server sometimes lower than usual?
For example, sometimes the server might have 100 player slots, then suddenly it drops to 99.
When an NPC is connected to the server, the number of available player slots is reduced by 1. This is by SA-MP design, as NPCs are essentially equivalent to a real player.
As soon as the NPC is no longer needed and leaves the server, the slot will become available again for players (or other NPCs..).

Can I connect to MCNR using a VPN?
We do not forbid the use of connections from VPNs, however you do so at your own risk. If you connect using a VPN you may get the same IP address as someone that is banned. You may therefore end up banned yourself, or be accused of ban evasion.

Can I sell a vehicle credit?
If you have a vehicle credit (from a donation, given by staff, won in an event etc.) and you don't wish to purchase a vehicle with it, you can instead sell it for $10,000 using /sellcredits.

Why can I only sell my vehicle for $10,000 when it should be worth more?
If you purchased a vehicle with a 'free vehicle credit' after version 1.14.13, you can only sell the vehicle for the value of a vehicle credit (which can be sold with /sellcredits).
