Av decided to to have the spanish cus i can understand it a bit better than the other one, u guys have any other ideas, or is there a way where i can put languages in. screenshots of the spanish language below

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.

Or you can buy a new game.A english version,but it will cost you and it will be a version 2.00.

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?

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

Well i would go and buy the pc version but i think av gave my two cents when i bought the original ps2 version for around £40 (am thinkin around \$70). anyways heres the american.gxt file u wanted http://rapidshare.com/files/10231215/american.gxt

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

Since I'm an arrogant bastard and take away other's glory then I'll answer it

You get dollars for every post. 5 dollars for each to be precise. You can buy weapons & stuff with it. I don't but some gang members do...

So where do i xactly buy them from?....n are they jus mods for the pc version or sumthing?

Share on other sites

up is a link to the store, just look for something cald store up on the page. There you can buy stuff and bank money. The bought items can get used for a gang. there currently are 3 active gangs.

Liberty Crime Famely

Venato Mafia

and the best for last:

The Dragon Stealths.

Now the items can only be used if you'r in a gang in a so called gang wars. Something unique in the world of gta forums cause we are the only ones with a "gang system". So look arround and maybe apply to enter a gang. Although you'l have to have a higher postcount and stay here longer till you would be accepted I think.
