What works

All functions, both on foot and in vehicle, work fantastic!  The video works great and the application did not hiccup or crash after several hours of play.  The storyline video segments play fine.

(no cd crack was loaded with no adverse effects) 

What does not

Environmental audio sounds very faint.  For example, a car can drive right by me within a few feet and I can barely hear the engine running & tires squealing.  However, the audio intensity of dialogue is great between characters both in game and in video segments.  I maxed out SFX and turned off the radio in game setup menu to no avail.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Game was not played in entirety with wine.
Game was not played with the CD in the optical drive. (no cd crack was used)

Additional Comments

I initially tried to bring back the "hot coffee" scenes that were removed in the second edition by loading a 3rd party crack. After doing so the movement controls would only work intermittently and the game would lock up with a GTA_SA.EXE CAUSED A SERIOUS ERROR AND NEEDS TO CLOSE error message. After removing the crack the symptoms went away and game now plays fine. Game was run with the no cd crack. Video card = Nvidia GeForce 6200 256MB AGP with nvidia driver Sound card = Creative Audigy PCI

HowTo / Notes

Common Problems
GTA refuses to open

    Some times gta may fail to start even when you haven't touched (modded) anything. In this case delete the file gta_sa.set inside  the Documents/GTA San Andreas User Files directory and restart the app. You will have to reset your gta sa settings.

    CJ and peds are too dark

      If cj isn't light correctly and appears very dark try disabling glsl. You can disable it using the registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D\UseGLSL > "disabled" Or use winetricks/playonlinux

      Slow Play

        If you have problems with slow play, go to your winecfg and disable support for Vertex Shader and Pixel Shader

        Controllers & Keyboards

          Joysticks and joypads will create a conflict with the keyboard keys making the character (CJ) uncontrollable. Disable all controllers before running the game to avoid this issue.

          Load a saved game not work

            Try this: winetricks d3dx9

            Intro videos not work

              In some cases this fix can backfire, doing that your game does not start anymore.Make a backup of your .wine folder or create new wineprefix for test before continuing.

              1) Install the ugly plugins for gstreamer (the name of package depends of your distribuition)
              2) Install the quartz and devenum: winetricks quartz devenum
              3) Install ffdshow: winetricks
              ffdshow (during installation, check the box of MPEG1 and MPEG2)
              4) Test your game.

              If you can not start your game, restore the backup or back to original wineprefix. # 9127

              Fonts Issue

                If you have issues with fonts, try (type in the terminal): winetricks allfonts

                Extracts all audio from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

                this method extracts all audio from GTA San Andreas, includes all music, DJ chatter, ads, ­background sounds and cutscenes.

                How to build

                1) Get this archive: http://goo.gl/HRwGV

                2) On terminal extract this archive with: tar xfv radio-free-san-andreas-0.2.tar.bz2

                3) Go to extracted folder: cd radio-free-san-andreas-0.2

                4) Type: ./bootstrap && ./configure

                5) If a problem occurs, install the missing libraries and rerun the command ./configure until it runs without errors.

                6) Build (type it): make


                How to use

                1) Go to src/ folder: cd src/

                2) Create the folder where the files will be stored: mkdir ~/gta_sounds

                3) Type: ./extract [your gta folder]/audio/streams/* [user folder]/gta_sounds ../metadata.conf

                Do not use quotation marks or abbreviations (~), it will cause errors. If your path contains spaces, use a "\ " for a correct interpretation, for example:

                ./extract /home/mrk3004/Games/GTA\ San\ Andreas/audio/streams/* /home/mrk3004/gta_sounds ../metadata.conf

                The first arguments are the files to extract from. Then comes the base directory to put the output files in, and lastly the file to read metadata from.

                audio/streams/* extracts all the musics and sounds. To extract some in specific, follow the table below:

                Filename Station
                audio/streams/aa Police
                audio/streams/adverts Adverts
