Why are these Euro modders so fascinated by Parallax! Remember Jonelo and his Stalker shots?

"Why are these Euro modders so fascinated by Parallax! Remember Jonelo and his Stalker shots?"

You see we like making something better than spendding more time on talking how great are consoles than actually playing on them.

I give them credit for definitely improving the effects.

Why has no one come out with a texture pack? That would make the most dramatic change IMO.

What are the mods that add the best looking-most amount of new cars/wheels to the game?

I can't seem to find where to download on that enb site.

AA only goes up to three in the game, so I keep it off. I use the nvidia control panel to override it and have it set to x4. With resolution set at 1920 X 1200 thats all thats needed, but you do have the option of going higher than x3.

This is a great mod with new missions but only works with the original GTASA 1.00v installed. Here is a patch to downgrade if you have newer v2. Link:

http://files.filefront.com/GTA+SA+Downgrader+Patch/;6567224;/fileinfo.html

Download and follow instructions/recommendations:

http://www.deezire.net/downloads/gta/TTDISABETA4.zip

http://www.deezire.net/downloads/gta/TTDISABETA5.zip

Unzip Beta5. It is just an update, so after you have downloaded and unzipped BETA 4 simply replace the relevant files with these before install.

http://www.deezire.net/downloads/gta/GTA3IMG.zip

Unzip GTA3IMG into the TTDISABETA4/models/GTA3 folder and rebuild it prior to installation.

I recommend you use this img tool:

Here is a link describing the mod:

http://www.gtagarage.com/mods/show.php?id=1194

and an ongoing discussion thread:

http://www.gtagarage.com/discussion/topic.php?T=915&st=0

I'm currently playing it and have used the tip in the discussion thread on how to have the different gangs drive fancier vehicles and motorcycles; such as the hotknife, euro, banshee, FCR 900, NRG 500 and such. Might work in conjunction with the ENBSeries graphic mod.

Is GTA:SA really unstable for anyone else? On both Vista64 and XP, it's crashing a lot for me. I'm starting to wonder if it's my Quad Core that is giving the game grief...

Not here, been real stable at 1920 X 1200, x16af, x4aa, multisampling on AA transparency. Maybe your power supply, being as it is crashing in vista and xp.

With the crap the GTA4 turned out to contain or lack, I bought this game instead. :D Trying to get some nice mods installed first...

This ENBSeries mod is darn impressive but the frame rate hit is insane. Goes immediately from high 70's with ENB off to the low teens with ENB on. This normal for this mod?

Wish I could get my x2 card to work but seems to only use 1 GPU. :(

I decided to give this game a try too, since I wouldn't touch the DRM on GTA4 with a 100 foot pole. Someone fill me in on how to play this kind of game. The closest thing to this style of game I played was Postal 2, which was fun and hilarious, but in GTA San Andreas...

I get about 4 or 5 missions in and then get stuck. Either I do a mission and can't complete it, like tossing the boxes from the train to your "homie". He just won't catch them no matter where I aim. Charging for a longer throw either does nothing and it falls directly off the back to the ground, or sends it into friggin orbit nowhere near where I aimed.

I did the one with "Smoke" where you chase the train on a dirt bike. Chased it until I ran out of road and failed. I kept right next to the guys on the train most of the time and Smoke is shooting away but apparently couldn't hit a damned thing.

I got a Low Rider from Carlos or whatever, paid like $6000 to tweak it, then went to a mission, came out and it was friggin GONE! WTF?

So I go do whatever else and always someone opens fire on me, I shoot back, and the cops come chase me until I'm dead. No amount of hiding or running will shake them. I even drove WAY the hell out of town and was up on a cliff looking back and cops were spawning everywhere I went, ramming walls, driving in circles etc. if they could not path to me....forever. I could get completely out of sight, crouch, hide in a tunnel, whatever, and cops just spawn all over, right above the tunnel on the road where you could hear them ramming the guard rails to get to me...forever.

What am I missing here?

Back on topic, I tried the ENBSeries graphics mod but it is way, way, WAY over done on the bloom and blur stuff and just tanks your frame rate to sub-GTA4 levels. It has some nice improvements like the reflections, but I could not manage to tweak the INI enough to keep just that without other overdone stuff and like 12 FPS.

In the older GTA games you need to go to a "Paint n' Spray" to remove your wanted level, or sometimes it will go away when you finish a mission.

In GTA4 you can actually lose the cops through evasion.

I lost them in a paint shop once...then backed out and smacked right into one of them and they all resumed ramming me so bad I could not even drive back into the shop. DOH!

I forgot about that... San Andreas added a short amount of time where your wanted level is blinking and any illegal action will bring back all the heat instantly. I always just sat in the paint garage until it stopped blinking (making any gameplay change moot, and only adding some useless time).

Problem with some of those mods they look so awesome the rest of the game just look ever worse that it already was. ::(:

Still, it really shows the No. 1 reason the PC version of all GTA 3 based games are better than console. Now only if they can do it with IV.

Can't expect much from a console port so I just take it with a grain of salt.

I'm having a blast with this game at blazing frame rates assuming ENBSeries is off. Catalina is a hilarious character. :naughty: LOL. http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/2195/gtasa2008121423581711ia1.th.jpg (http://img72.imageshack.us/my.php?image=gtasa2008121423581711ia1.jpg) http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/9850/gtasa2008121523244790wh2.th.jpg (http://img72.imageshack.us/my.php?image=gtasa2008121523244790wh2.jpg)
