any1 who has a low performance or lags on the ios mobile version should try this :




i'ts a low setting from iphone 4 with everything turned off (and near drawing distance lowered)

along with this :




that lowers the far drawing distance, my game runs pretty smooth on my ios 5.1.1

it is very important that you play in SAFE MODE (with no junk lurking in the background) 

it gives the biggest fps boost!


hope it helped, have a great holidays and a great new year!

Hello, i just hate those pixelated textures and graphics on my ipad 2(not mini) and i cant find the upgraded graphic(resolution car reflection shadows) setting options in the display settings .i am not understanding all this uploading files thing, so if anyone could tell me what to do to have better graphics in gta san andreas, it would be great. Thanks

For iOS, there is no options it would appear to adjust in these Ports.  Only on Android Devices can you do that.  The only option you have in iOS is to adjust brightness.  I keep the brightness around 60%.  Tbh, I think the Mobile Versions look gorgeous other than the fact of the shiny effect on Vehicles and Peds.  I do NOT like that, but the draw distance is amazing in the Mobile Version...


But yeah, there is nothing really on iOS to adjust the settings.  Only Android has such options and only a brightness option on iOS.
