Assuming that you never played SA:MP before, here are some tips to get you on the right track.
Once you connect to the server, you need to spawn in order to start playing. You will be automatically redirected to the team selection. Choose a team using the left/right arrows and hit spawn (or press shift) to proceed.
After you spawn, you are given your weapons according to the class you chose. If you are a new player, you are to choose the Assault class which is the basic class for anyone to start. The Assault class provides you with basic weapons and powerful ones.
To fire a weapon, press and hold the right mouse button to aim and fire using the left mouse button.
Once you are able to protect yourself on foot, you need to get a vehicle for faster and safer transportation. To get inside a vehicle, you need to stand next to the vehicle and hit Enter(or F).
If you successfully entered the vehicle, use the arrows to drive or the W A S and D keys on your keyboard. Some people also modify the options in which you can steer using your mouse (check your game options for this).
Most of the game information is displayed in the chat box (top left) or as messages on your screen. To send messages press T or F6 to open the message bar and enter a text. To enter a command you need to use the / prefix which indicates a command. Commands are used to interact with the server and use more of its functions. Most of the commands are familiar and similar to their actions. For instance, to kill yourself you need to type /kill and then hit Enter.
