Hey newbs

There's a special trick you can use to find out when someone is spectating you.

Idk if it works for everyone, but it does for me, like 100% working.

STEPS:

1. you must have a medium-low spec pc with low graphics card(if you have expensive pc this won't work) , sorry gtx 1080 users :'(

2. because of the graphics being low-end, the more players join streamed area, the laggy gta sa becomes. That means if you are alone, the game runs good, but if other player comes near you, the game starts to lag.

3. because of 2. , when admin/vip spectates you, the game will lag for a few seconds, then will go back to normal. If the admin/vip is recording your gameplay, the game will lag more :) and you will know when to turn off cheats.

I was cheating in a server and guessed like 8-9 times when someone was spectating me and i said in chat "come on man, stop spectating me,i can see you" , he was like "WTF BRO HOW?" and /pm-ed me to ask me how do i know that :))

Not necessarily. If you're on a high end device, you won't lag that badly as the user on a low end device, so chances you won't realise that until it's too late. This is purely based on intuition and the possibility if such high lag occurs which is the not case always.

Usually noobs spam the chat with "ID 4 is hacking!" so it's pretty obvious the admin is going to start spectating you.

Why would the game lag if no entity(actor) is created for the spectating player. It's all server sided stuff.

If the server you're playing on has a look at script, do /lookat (admin) and you look at him but the admin will know
