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

                  ­

                  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

                    audio/streams/beats Beats
