GTA SA Mods won't work.
Posted 26 January 2009 - 10:20 PM
I downloaded IMG 2.0 and downloaded a car mod and put the txd and dff (?) files in GTA3.img all as i should, i deleted the old ones, i saved, rebuilt, and went into GTA SA, Looked for the car however, I found the original one. Even though i had removed it from the GTA3.IMG and entered a new car! I tried SAMI but not even something that simple would work! I un-installed, re-installed and tried again and again with different downloads and different IMG Tools. None work, i always find the original car.
So thats it. Apart from...
1) This is a legally aquired, no-cd cracked version of the game (i bought it legally and got the crack so the disc could be borrowed by a friend)
2) It IS version 1, the apparantly "moddable" version.
3) Sorry if this is the wrong forum, move me over if you wish
Thanks in advance,

are you accidentally modifying the backup, not the used version?
the used version is in the directory:
C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTA San Andreas\models
you don't need to delete, add, rebuild etc... that's a load of rubbish
just replace or add, take note of the file size, if it changes, viola you have victory
btw, if you want to change the name of vehicles, download "GTA:San Andreas GXT Editor" and use it to open "American.gxt" in the "text" folder
Download the program "GGMM" to view the Vehicles/Weapons when you have just modded them (make sure they are correct)
Download the program "CarSpawner" to spawn the Vehicles in game, run GTA San Andreas, get into the game itself, and onto a road or field, press "Esc", "Alt+tab" run carspawner, "Inject" "Launch Trainer" and search for the vehicle to spawn (number matches the number in
"vehicles.ide" for a quick reference)

Unfortunatly, i was unable to find any of the mods i installed. I downloaded GGMM and searched "Stratum" and found the volvo i installed (or atleast attempted to install). It was there and working and it looked great so i used "car spawner" and spawned the stratum, but all that arrived was the original model. I dont suppose you or anyone else has any other ideas?
Thank you anyway!!
i found the GGMM tool very useful, and the carspawner too!

Anyway i say try again ...maybe this car is the problem
just make sure you backup your gta3.img and the data files
Then try another car ...something easy to find ingame, for ex police vehicles or firetruks
