If you are having problems with your GTA SA game crashing to the desktop after the intro movie, make sure you have installed the game AND the audio files!!! I did not install the audio files to my PC the first time I installed the game, and the game would ALWAYS crash back to the desktop after showing the intro movie and splash screen.

I uninstalled the game and re-installed (including all audio) and the game now works perfectly!!!

On my version of SA I don't get the choice to install the audio or not. It just installs them.

I think in the early versions of GTA PC DVD you could choose.

I dunno about different versions of the PC DVD having different install options... I know I have the second edition DVD which does give to option of installing or not installing the audio files. The first couple of times I installed, I chose to not install the audio so the install wouldn't take as long. finaly I figured what the hell, and tried with installing the audio and it worked .. spent the last 2 weeks trying to get the game working, at it was so simple lol . .

This game sure has silly ways of fixing problems. Maybe it has problems reading audio from some DVD drives, so its better to install it all on the HDD. IMO
