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:

                  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

                    After playing GTA San Andreas for about 5 minutes the game crashes. No particular action in the game causes it.

                    This is the error I get: Unhandled exception: page fault on write access to 0x05086000 in 32-bit code (0x004dfe92).
                    (Solution) Taking picture with camera crashes game
                    by Erik Lundmark on Saturday April 19th 2014, 18:19
                    Everything worked well for me except this.

                    Taking a picture, which is required for 2+ missions, freezes and finally crashes the game.

                    Solution (you will not be able to save your pictures, but atleast you can play):
                    1. Navigate to your GTA User Gallery folder, mime is ~/GTA San Andreas User Files/Gallery/
                    2. Delete the "Gallery" folder.
                    3. Now symlink /dev/null to ./Gallery, using this command:
                    $ ln -s /dev/null "$HOME/GTA San Andreas User Files/Gallery/"

                    The game now saves into nothing, which saves it from crashing!

                    Tested in Lubuntu 14.04 64-bit - Wine 1.7.16. I have followed the instructions and installed everything needed with winetricks, and added dinput as native builtin. I also use a script to launch the game to set the correct resolution on start and exit.
                    cd $HOME/.wine/dosdevices/c\:/Program\ Files/Rockstar\ Games/GTA\ San\ Andreas/
                    xrandr -s 1024x768 && \
                    wine "$PWD/gta_sa.exe"
                    xrandr -s 1366x768

                    This trick also work in VC and 3

                    -make a new fresh .wine prefix(back up first)
                    -install GTA(from dvd or steam)
                    -install directx9
                    -wine regedit and set HKCU-Software-Wine-Direct3D, UseGLSL to enabled
                    -try your gta

                    if not work, try install newest mesa driver (because 9.0 is buggy, but in my Kubuntu is work)

                    by Jean-Michel on Tuesday June 4th 2013, 21:42
                    This is a little update on my test results, I've monitored the console output and it seems like it has an issue with gstreamer on 64-bit WINE, so I played around with "winegstreamer" in winecfg and it still wouldn't work.

                    So I decided to try my 32-bit wineprefix, and the game actually launches, thought the performance isn't as good as on previous wine versions. I'm not sure why it has always worked before, I have the ia-32-libs and ia-32-libs-multiarch installed.

                    Since the installation the first time i played the game it worked flawlessly. Then I closed it to install the multiplayer stuff and tried to play it again and crashed everytime.
                    Ive tried reinstalling it and stuff but nothing seems to work with it.

                    ENB Series mod.
                    by Nero Rush on Thursday April 26th 2012, 15:43
                    I've recently been trying to run ENB Series on GTA:SA. "ENBSeries is the project of graphic modifications for games. [...] Many games may look much better and ENBSeries is the easiest way to improve them.". It's quite popular among gamers, and I haven't had much success running it. First of all, I opened a thread on the official mod forums, but the dev doesn't use Linux:

                    I had to force Wine to use the native d3d9 library with winecfg, then I installed the mod, and found out that Wine can't properly generate texture mipmaps automatically (a log file can be found on the mod forums' thread with a few screenshots). Then, with a bit of settings tweaking as advised by the dev, I've been able to run it but it lags a lot; I need someone to test the mod with a high-end graphic card. Ask questions!

                    Problems with wireless usb keyboard/mouse and graphics
                    by Nicolás M. on Wednesday November 16th 2011, 0:41
                    Hello :D!!

                    First of all, I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 x64 with Wine 1.3.28. The problem I have is that CJ moves forward all the time without me touching anything.

                    I know there are problems having a Joystick/joypad plugged in before start, but I'm using only my keyboard/mouse.

                    Both, the mouse and keyboard are wireless, so maybe it has something to do.

                    The graphics problem is the same (I think) that the one under "Common Problems" except that I could not fix it because the entry "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D\UseGLSL" is not present. I will try now with Playonlinux.

                    The game installed without problems with wine 1.3.28 and playonlinux.

                    Finally, MANY thanks for the great job of the Wine Developers and his partners :D.

                    if you are experiencing extremely low fps while playing, try using pbuffer instead of fbo.

                    You can change this using winetricks.

                    1) Install the complete game, including the sounds.
                    2) Apply the no-intro patch.

                    NUMA + wine + GTA:SA = fail
                    by nightwalk on Thursday June 10th 2010, 20:39
                    This game has worked for me out-of-the-box using just a bare wine config since at least 1.0.3. However, I've found that it has serious issues on NUMA-based systems that make it unplayable.

                    Anything beyond the menu runs at normal speed for ~1 second, then freezes for about 2-5 seconds, runs normally for another second, then goes back out to lunch. Rinse, lather, repeat.

                    Locking the game to a single core using taskset has no effect, using a realtime kernel (and running the game with realtime priority) has no effect, and it also doesn't seem to matter what type of video card is used. Disabling power saving features in the BIOS, and changing to the 'Performance' governor also didn't improve the situation any.

                    My best guess is that it has something to do with interrupts raised as a result of the processors "talking" to each other, and I don't know that there's a non-code work-around for it.

                    For reference, the latest system where I'm running into this problem uses an ALiveNF7G-HD720p motherboard, an AMD Phenom(tm) 9750 (2.4Ghz), and 4x2Gb DDR2 800Mhz memory modules. It has also happened on numerous other Athlon64 & Athlon64 X2-based systems (all NUMA).

                    In fact, the only system I've ever gotten this working on is an Intel-based HP Pavilion dv9500 laptop (non-NUMA), and it works just as well under wine as it does under windows -- ditto for SA:MP.

                    Naturally, the game has worked fine under windows on *all* of the hardware I've ever ran it on, so I think it's fair to assume this is a wine bug.

                    Until it's fixed, if you want to play this game under linux, I'd suggest using a non-I7 Intel-based system.

                    I'm having trouble with the joypad configuration on my Foxconn controller. The left-right axis on the left analog stick controls both the camera movement, and the player movement as well. This makes driving very difficult and awkward.

                    I would like to switch the left-right axis of the left analog stick for camera movement, to the right analog stick, so that it functions exactly how it does on PS2, with the right analog stick controlling the camera, and the left controlling the player.

                    Is this a bug that only I'm experiencing? I can't seem to find anyone with the same issues...

                    Library seems to be installed properly but when I start the game it shows the same effect as before and crashes after pressing (what should be at least) a new game button. Could you help?

                    EAX sound issue fix :)
                    by Grams79 on Thursday March 11th 2010, 12:40
                    After testing once again with a fresh install on a fresh OS.
                    Here are my findings to help eliminate the dreaded EAX sound bug.

                    Don't understand this sound bug? I will briefly explain.
                    GTASA was designed with EAX technology (eax.dll) and Microsoft Direct Sound Library (dsound.dll).
                    Something to do with Creative Sound Systems, 5.1 surround bla bla.
                    Well... WINE doesn't support it in this case.

                    In game the sound bug is much like this, I will explain.
                    Ambient sounds such as vehicle motors and footsteps are extremely low.
                    The only time these sound effect become clear is when the 3rd person cam position is near the model where the sound effect resides.
                    On the other hand sound effects from gunshots and the character CJ speaking are very loud.

                    This after 5 minutes this bug can make a gamer go mad! lol

                    At first I tackled the EAX.
                    Everyone since 2005 suggested a downgrade of the eax.dll.
                    I've tried these versions:,,,,,,
                    I don't believe any longer that this is a valid fix.

                    Many suggested changing from FULL to BASIC acceleration.
                    Go to ~./wine and open user.reg with gedit.
                    Located [Software\\Wine\\DirectSound] and find "HardwareAcceleration"="????"
                    Change it to "HardwareAcceleration"="Basic" and save.
                    That doesn't seem to change much now.

                    So to continue to the solution I have found.
                    Version: 5.3.2600.2180
                    FIXED MY ISSUE!
                    Backup your dsound.dll from original wine install found in system32.
                    Go into wine configuration and then libraries.
                    Type in dsound and set native, builtin.

                    WINE VERSION 1.1.37
                    SOUND DRIVER – OSS
                    SAMPLE RATE – 44100 / 16
                    ACCELERATION – BASIC
                    UBUNTU – 9.10
                    SOUND PREF – Analog Stereo Output
                    SPEAKERS – 2 desktop / 2 shelf (not 4.0)

                    Please try this fix and reply to let me know!
                    If this is the key then we can announce this as a perm fix.

                    by Joshua Elmendorf on Saturday January 30th 2010, 21:05
                    I got my mouse and external keyboard hooked up to my laptop via a USB hub (4-port), nothing else is connected to it, I also have an external HDD connected via a different usb slot, as well as a fan in another, when I play the game, I can't control my keyboard on either the laptop or the external keyboard. I have to restart the computer to get control back, any ideas why?

                    After upgrading couple of mins ago and rechecking the wine configuration my keyb problem was fixed ^^

                    Thx Wine! =)

                    Guys 0.0*

                    Ok after the discussion about the joy(stick/pad) controller I decided to attach one joypad.


                    1. Joypad
                    2. Game start
                    3. Guess what? Keyb is still not grabbed, thou the joypad works as fine as swiss clock!

                    No issue at all(of course, if we ignore the keyb-not-grabbed issue) =)

                    I have the same problem on vice city, same behavior.

                    Hope i'll be able to do the regression test soon...
                    Controller bug fix
                    by Grams79 on Friday January 22nd 2010, 13:25
                    As the warning above states....
                    There is a conflict between joypads and joystick with the keys.
                    It makes CJ run around without stopping.

                    The solution is to simply unplug the controller and plug back in before every start of the game.

                    How to enable unusual video mode
                    by Ruslan on Monday January 11th 2010, 19:18
                    I have EEE PC with 1024x600 screen. In windows GTASA does find this mode and allows to set it to play. But in wine, be it virtual desktop or usual window, i get 800x600 and 640x480 as the only options. I tried adding different modes via xrandr, but this didn't help.
                    Does anyone know how to make GTASA use the needed mode?

                    5 YEAR SOUND ISSUE FIX
                    by Grams79 on Saturday January 9th 2010, 10:44
                    There has been a scream for help from many people who could not get the sound to work correctly for years!!
                    I can not believe that people have not noticed this issue as much as others such as Christian Nolte.

                    The sound issue makes car engines, foot steps and other sounds very quiet while Carl's voice, gun shots and police very loud.

                    The EAX is at fault and I've got the cure.
                    I'm not 100% sure if this will work for all others.
                    Do try and report back here with confirmation.

                    1. Go into wine configuration and then libraries.
                    2. Type in dsound and set native, builtin.
                    3. Type in eax and set native, builtin.

                    The next step is to set audio hardware acceleration to BASIC.
                    This was hard to do since the update of wine where only FULL and EMULATION is available for option.
                    Go to ~./wine and open user.reg with gedit.
                    Located [Software\\Wine\\DirectSound] and find "HardwareAcceleration"="????"
                    Change it to "HardwareAcceleration"="Basic" and save.

                    Hope this helps everyone!!!!!

                    How to start the game on intel etc. video cards
                    by Ruslan on Sunday September 20th 2009, 10:55
                    If you are using Mesa driver for your video card (e.g. intel), you will get no textures in the menu, and trying to start new game will crash the game. This is because the game uses patented texture compression algorithm, which is left out of Mesa for legal reasons. To get GTA SA working, you have to get library. Once you install it, GTA will work.
                    You can read about this library and download source from here:

                    Seems I'm the only one who can't run San Andreas?

                    Tried both 1.1.25 and 1.1.26, the game run just once (and worked well for that one)! For all other times, screen gets garbled, no wine activity, and can't get any wine debug. Only way out is to restart X.

                    I'm using a no-cd crack, can't get the game to run without, keeps looking for the cd/dvd. Are you guys using no-cd ?
                    Making the mod "Things to do in San Andreas 'Till you die" work
                    by John on Thursday July 23rd 2009, 13:03
                    Normally, running gta_sa.exe with this mod under wine 1.1.26 will cause the game to crash upon booting a new game. To alleviate this problem and still get most of the benefit of the mod, using sanny builder, decompile the main.scm, and comment out all the lines of text starting with (minus the quotes) "0181:" and "00C4:"
                    Recompile the main.scm, and you should be able to start a new game without a hitch.
                    The features lost by doing this are as follows: motorbike police don't change models depending on region, helicopter models don't change depending on your wanted level, and license plates do not get anisotropic filtering.

                    Intel video card vs nvidia logs
                    by Ruslan on Monday June 15th 2009, 15:54
                    I logged wine actions with WINEDEBUG=+d3d variable starting gtasa on intel and nvidia cards. It seems that the only errors which may have some sense in for this problem:

                    trace:d3d:test_arb_vs_offset_limit OpenGL implementation does not allow indirect addressing offsets > 63
                    trace:d3d:test_arb_vs_offset_limit error: "1054: integer value out of range"

                    on intel, and

                    trace:d3d:test_arb_vs_offset_limit OpenGL implementation allows offsets > 63

                    on nvidia.
                    Seems this *could* be the problem, though i'm not sure.
                    Here are logs:

                    note: these logs are from different machines with different distros, but i think it shouldn't matter much since the problem is 100% reproducible for non-nvidia cards.

                    I was getting some pretty ridiculously slow performance on this game and no amount of turning down the effects was working. When I opened the stream.ini file in the SA directory and changed "memory" and "dev_kit memory" up waaaay higher (i set them at 50000) performance sped up to where it was actually playable and enjoyable. Good luck !

                    by Jan Kaláb on Saturday March 14th 2009, 4:55
                    I've a little problem with my controls. It seems like forward and left is always pressed. So CJ is still running diagonaly. And also in menus, the sliders (like volmue or mouse sensitivity) are always decreasing when mouse cursor is above them. Any idea what's wrong and how may I fix this? I've Ubuntu 8.10 64bit and Wine 1.1.16 (waiting for 17.deb).

                    P.S. It's not joystick problem because I don't own any.
