Who is the Author?

In 2001, was founded by Shahriar and Alex. At the beginning, the website has mainly provided information and news about the upcoming GTA III. Later on when modding started, it grew with the community which started to produce the first modifications.

Today, is mainly run by me, Alex. I’m 31 years old and I live in Germany. My computer passion begun in 1996 when I got my first Personal Computer which was able to handle games at that time. From games like Quake and Midtown Madness, I moved to the Grand Theft Auto series which fascinated me by providing the enormous freedom of movement and action which was never seen before in games.

I would like to use this opportunity to thank all supporters and hardworking modders who are uploading dozens of modifications every day. Without you, GTAinside would not exist.
The forum of GTAinside is run by a number of moderators who I also want to thank!
