San Andreas FAQ

How do I install the mods?
There is no general method to install the mods, each one have its own way. This website is full of tutorials that can help you installing the mods! If you have problems feel free to ask a question to our community.

Can I install MTASA or SAMP on a GTA with some mods?
The mods alters some game aspects and they might be seen as cheating. I recommend you to reinstall the game or recover original files with this tool.

I forgot to make a backup of a file/folder, is there a way to restore the original files without reinstalling?
Yes, follow this tutorial to recover any original file. You only need San Andread DVD or ISO file on computer.

Can I replace another vehicle instead of the one recommended by the author?
Yes, you've only to rename the DFF and TXD files correctly. If the car includes some settings lines you have to rename them correctly too.

I installed a mod but my game crashes at half of loading, what's wrong?
Probably you have San Andreas v2.00, a version that is not fully moddable. To install vehicles on this version you can follow this tutorial. By the way there is a tool called downgrader that allows you to downgrade from v2.00 to 1.00, but we can't provide you this tool since it's illegal.

GTA Garage Mod Manager doesn't run, what should I do?
Probably you haven't copied ggmm.exe and gtainterface.dll into San Andreas main folder, where gta_sa.exe is located. If you recieve TXD Corrupt error, this error is unknown and there is no solution actually. Some people solved this problem changing operating system or graphics card.

TXD Workshop gives me Exception EFOpenError in module dxt.dll at 0000B4A6 error? Try to run the program with Windows XP compatibility. So right-click the exe>Properties>Compatibility.

I downloaded a savegame but the game crashes on loading, why?
Maybe you downloaded a savegame for another San Andreas version.

Car Spawner gives me this error: Run-time error '339': component 'Mscomctl.ocx' or one of dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid, how do I solve?
Save this file on your computer and copy it on Car Spawner folder.

When I try to import a DFF into 3D Studio Max it gives me this error: This is a NON-Standard dff. What to do?
The file is protected and can only be imported into Zmodeler.

Can I modify San Andreas for XBOX or PS2?
No, only PC version is fully moddable.
