If people just want to run trainers or mod San Andreas Version 2, all they need is a version 1 exe file. I've been putting mods my GTA SA v.2 for 3 months without a downgrader and they would probably work the same way.

Don't worry about the directory, I'm Norwegian and we don't use Program Files, but Program filer.
Anyone know what to do?

No, why don't you just check back here you lazy git.

Basically, you either don't have an installed game in the directory you chose, you didn't choose a directory, or you chose the wrong one (basically like the first :P)
But yeah, that's what you did wrong...
Did you modify the installation path at all?

Alright, due to the overwhelming amount of topics about this and persuasion from Heavenly Blade, I have decided to make sure that everyone who wants to mod San Andreas has the ability to do so.

Download

Clicking that direct download link will initiate the patch process. Simply download and run the patch, and follow the instructions.

But be warned!!

The GTA Place is not responsible if this fucks up your game/computer.

i tried that on windows vista but it said that it couldnt play cuz it wanted an update what shall i do?

I tried running the downgrader, but it told me: " This program can not patch the installed version of San Andreas beacuse of the following reason:

gta_sa.exe: unknown verision "


What is causing this? How can I work around this problem?

At the startup screen, in the bottom right hand corner, there will be some text saying 'V2.0' if you have V2, but if you don't, the chances are it's V1...

recently bought SA off direct2drive to play the MP mod, since I couldn't find a copy of the game for PC in any store near where I live. The site has you download the game already patched to the newest version, which is 3.0 apparently (or at least that's what it says in the corner of the menu when I boot up the game). The downgrader doesn't seem to work on this version, I got the error "gta_sa.exe: unknown verision" when I tried to run it. Anyone know if there's a fix to this out there, or some way to work around it? TIA

I just got the downgrader and game works fine, except that the 100% savegames doesnt work anymore. Is this a known problem or is it just me ??

Dude, can you give me the directions on how to download the downgrader?

How can I run the gtasa.exe? Do I just double click it?

Dude, since your 100% game file cannot work, you probably might wanna start a new game cause you can't use V2.0 game save files anymore. Get it? I hope you do...

I downloaded the downgrader, and it works fine, can start a new game and stuff. But if I save the v1 game, I cant load it? I tried also 100% v1 savegames, but I cant load anything. When I reinstall SA, it works fine again, except I got v2 again....
