Ok, long story cut short, av had san andreas since it 1st launched on ps2 an hav completed it back in the day. After browsing thru this website i really got interested adding mods so i downloaded a pc version. I installed it without any complications but was dissatisfied with the version as it is not in english. i have tryed to look for the language option but cannot find it any where as i cant read this version. the version luks lyk its from eygpt or israel or sumthing along those lines. my question is, is there any patch to change it to the english language? any help will be greatly appreciated cus i want that murcielago mod!!

Ok, those are cyrillic characters. You have a pirated Russian copy of the game. Though presumably you know this already as you must have downloaded it from somewhere - something which we don't condone, and you appear to be in the UK...

Basically, whatever language you set it to everythings going to appear in those cyrillic characters and it will look weird. Anyway...

At the main menu Options is the middle one, click that
Then there will be 4 things to choose from, click the bottom one, this takes you to the language settings, they appear in this order from top to bottom:
English
French
German
Italian
Spanish

Since you have illegally acquired a Russian version of the game though, the options might all be different to that, I don't know, but your best bet is to follow the instructions above.

What's in this folder on your copy of the game C:\[location]\GTA San Andreas\text

You could maybe import the american.gxt from my version.

That's weird. I thought that if you have American.gxt you'l have English... Can you upload your american.gxt to rapidshare or something and post the link here?


edit:

He's asking for help with his current prob, not an alternitive. He owns the actuall ps2 game..

I looked at it with the GXT tool but just looked like some random letters to me. Try importing my american.gxt Although I don't have high hopes of this working
