First post! Hello world!!
I've been searching the internet for about two months - troubleshooting this problem whenever I've had free time. It seems as if personally reaching out to the community is my last remaining option, as I'm clearly the only person who has documented having this problem. However, I'm still convinced I'm not the only person who is having it. Hopefully this thread helps other people as well.
I'm trying to use the GTA SA StreamIniExtender CLEO modification by Deji to remove the daytime heat haze, grass, and some vehicle lighting bugs on SAMP. When I'm looking to download the mod, most links just point to a site with a MySQL error. For example, one straight from this site: http://gtaforums.com...m-ini-extender/.
I was able to get my hands on a copy of the modification eventually, and it included a stream.ini file, a readme.txt file and a StreamIniExtender.cs file. I have CLEO 4.3.16 installed, though I've yielded the same results with 4.2a as well. I'm using the 1.0 US version of gta_sa.exe, though I've yielded the same results with 1.0 EU as well.
I'm putting Stream.ini in the GTA San Andreas root folder - replacing the one that was already there, and I'm putting StreamIniExtender.cs in the GTA San Andreas\CLEO folder, per the readme. When I launch the game (SAMP and Single Player), this is the crash I get: http://notepad.cc/deamochu99. Now, I've tried renaming "stream.ini" to "streamSAMP.ini", but it didn't seem to help. I'm also understanding that CLEO 4 is backwards compatible by naming .cs files .cs3 instead. I've tried that, and the game launches successfully, however that's because it is disregarding the file all together. If I open up the CLEO log file, these lines of text indicate a problem:

I've even tried using a different computer, but I'm yielding the same results. I've tried on an AMD and Intel chipset. I've tried on an ATI and NVidia chipset. Nobody else has reported having this problem. How do I fix this!?
