I downloaded a Female CJ replacement mod, something which you may have seen on this forum. Sadly the account owner has not responded for a year so I cannot ask him. However, I downloaded his mod and installed using SAMI, however when playing it would load up into a black screen, after uninstalling and reinstalling, it still is that black screen, I even uninstalled using Revo, a program which can search for any related files in the directory and hard drive and deletes them, still It doesn't work....

anyone had the same issue and sorted it?

I cannot find any advice on here that I have not already done, thanks

Have you tried re-installing SA and manually installing the MOD?

SAMI isn't very reliable/stable I've heard

Most game modifications are easy enough to install manually (even for beginners) that SAMI shouldn't be neccessary to use.

If you're talking about a player model, then all you need to do is replace the original files in player.img with the mod files using an IMG editing tool (back up the originals by extracting first. Some IMG editors have this feature as automatic extraction). After that, rebuild the archive and it should work.

If you've reinstalled you're game and the mods are still there just go to Run and type in 'regedit' and then look in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Rockstar Games and delete the folder that says 'GTA San Andreas', now reinstall the game. This should give you clean install and remove any mods you have.

Also get shot of SAMI and use a real IMG editor that actually works. I'd suggest using IMGTool and installing them manually it's much more realible than SAMI. Just replace the dff and txd files, then rebuild the archive. I've been using IMGTool for some time now, without any problems.
