Are you running it on Cider? It'll be hard, dude, especially if you don't dual-boot with Windows on your Mac.

Can you dual-boot to Windows? Try opening gta3.img in your Cider directory in Windows.

Since you're on Cider, it'll be a tad harder to fix since you're running GTA on an unsupported system.

To get rid of that shitty looking chrome car look: Follow these steps.
First, go watch this video. It explains how to downgrade your version of san andreas (which causes problems) Use the provided download links files in the description. He doesn't say it in his video, but you want to replace gta_sa.exe with gta_sa_compact.exe. The gta_sa.exe he provides didn't work for me, so I'm going off of that..



If you don't have it, grab SAMI here http://www.mediafire...9sx13kw16pb62l6

OK so what I did:

1st I downgraded my gta, the file you want to put in your \gta san andreas folder will be called gta_sa_compact.exe. It's a non-wide screen version of the game, but it's worth it because it fixes many game play problems.
2nd, Grab this: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=Q7NJ50W4. It's a ported version of cider pre-set up for GTASA. Basically, just take your whole Rockstar Folder, copy it, and paste it into the c-drive, just like cider, you should already know this. If you don't, after you download that, unzip it or whatever you have to do, right click it and click show contents. Then navigate to this:

contents\resources\transgaming\cdrive\*put rockstar folder here*

After that, you have to edit the plist.info to make it run gta_sa_compact.exe, and then it should be able to just run right away, because the cider port is pre-set up with the correct path names.

so open plist.info (which is located in the "contents" folder) file with textedit and there should be a line that says
<string>C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTA San Andreas\GTA_SA_COMPACT.exe</string>. If it says \gta_sa.exe change it. Save, close, run gta.

Installing mods with SAMI is pretty self explanatory. But if you need it, here's a video on what to do, with that exact file that I linked earlier:

Now remember, this seems to only work for adding vehicles. Also, PUMA's hoverboard mod DOES NOT WORK, so don't bother... still mad about that :(





I think the only way us mac users are going to be able to add mods to SA other than cars, is going to be by using a mac version / cider ported IMG Tool 2.0. I've been looking for one of these non-stop, but can't seem to find one. If anyone knows where I can get that or a similar program, that would be a blessing.
