You'll have to reinstall to get those files back. Nobody will host them on the internet since they're both huge (gig?) and it's illegal to do so.

Welcome to TGTAP redkap. :hi:

As for your question, you can't open .img files with Windows Explorer, you need a program for this.

You have several options here, but I recommend IMG Tool 2.0. It works perfectly and does it's job. ;)

Is it dangerous to mod my game?
Installing mods does not damage your game, unless you do something wrong. So long as your follow the instructions, and have a basic idea of what it is you're actually doing, you are unlikely to make a mistake. If you do make a mistake, you could either restore a backup (if you made one) or reinstall your game. Reinstalling your game does not get rid of your saved games, they are stored in 'My Documents'. For this reason, it is best to keep a backup of every file you edit or replace. The only file that is usually too big to backup is gta3.img - you should just backup every .dff or .txd inside gta3.img that you backup.


Perhaps you should add that script mods can corrupt your savegame. You have to start a new game for every new script mod you use (main.scm and script.img).


hi
how u doin
as it was metioned above that you should first copy all the files from ps2 cd to the computer.
i dint really understand that cause i tried to do that and some of the files were not to be copied. and when i tried to replace the modded files with the files in the GTA SA CD, it was not able to do.
so can someone pl tell me in details on how to exactly do it on PS2 CD'S

thanx

The ENBseries for San Andreas is a Graphic enhancement. It just makes the game look better with better shadows, reflections and more. But anyways did the file come with a read me?

To install it you copy the d3d file and the .ini to the San Andreas root directory. (DISK:/Program Files (or wherever you installed SA)/Rockstar Games/GTA San Andreas) On game you put SHIFT and F12 and enjoy. You'll need a good pc tho.

After finally saving up enough to get a new laptop, I now want to start modding GTA SA again. I have downgraded from V2 to V1, and I've got the IMG Tool (2.0), however whenever I try to open the GTA3.img file the IMG Tool just says " failed to set data for" " I don't want to use the Spark thing because, I prefer doing it manually. Is there any way to make the IMG tool actually work?

i had that problem before, i re-installed gtasa and it was fine, also sometimes if you right click gta3.img and go to properties and the read only box is ticked that can give you some stick too, so untick it. also i had a problem with img tool 2.0, sometimes when rebilding archive it crashes and corrupts my gta3.img file, once that happens it re-installation time, its better and safer to instead back up the file ur replacing (eg elegy.dff & elegy.txd) delete them then rename your files to elegy.dff & elegy.txd then click commands->add and add them but dont rebuild archive you dont need to, credits to WRX"the boss"22B for his help on that one. sorry for the essay lol hope it helps :D
