Dirty Cars

Question

Yodeke

Why do all of the cars appear dirty at the bottom??? Is there a car wash feature in the game because pay and spray doesn't seem to take it off?

In the PC versions cars didn't get cleaned. They only get cleaned with the 1.01 patch smile.gif

Cleaning cars only works on the patched version of the game. 1.01 VERSION. That's all I have to say. It DOESNT WORK IN 1.00. SO IT IS PATCHED IN 1.01

Is it possible to get rid of the dirt on the cars in Version 2? It's annoying me to no end.

I think you'll have to wait until it rains or paint it with a different color. I, currently own the first version for Playstation 2. Rain and paint always works in the first version. Don't know about the version 2. Hope this helps a little.

Remember to set FX quality to medium or higher for this to work.

i donwgraded so i can use cool mods and stuff but it also makes the cars forever dirty. and the 1.01 patch doesnt work. i want to kno if anyone made something to fix this. also if there are any ways to have a clean car without it having a paintjob or being black.

 

'nother question. the 1.01 patch also stops hot coffee. so does it stop all mods aswell?

just curious but that wont help me any

Try the No dirt / no rust mod. 1.01 shouldn't prevent anything other than Hot Coffee type mods from working since that was what it was designed to "fix." The more drastic mod protections didn't show up until v2.

wen you say "patch doesnt work" are you talking about the dirt or the patch?

 

you need to max out you 3d settings for the 1.01exe to clean cars (but you need a nvidia card to do that)

 

the no dirt mod is for free

a nvidia card is $200/$700

 

y you need to max out 3d settings i just dont no

Do you? (I have an Nvidia card myself, but it's a bit surprising if it only works on their stuff).

The cars cleanness status gets changed quite often so they probably use this setting to determine whether it is possible to update all the cars e.g. when it rains the cars in the area all have to get cleaned.

I don't think that really mean a whole lot though, it's just marketing stuff so they earn more money by pimping some other company's product at the same time (interestingly supposedly a number of TWIMTBP games run better on ATI stuff but usually the differences are pretty minor like comparing games that don't endorse a particular brand of video cards).

Search dude. I think this has been talked about a bunch of times. I think you just spray it. Try putting it in your garage, although I am not positive about that.

No not with the xbox version. On PC or PS2 if it rains the dirt will be washed off, but not with the Xbox San Andreas. There are no cheats to use, and putting in your garage/pay 'n' spray doesn't work. It will always be on the side of the car. Sorry

There's a PC modiication you can download which makes your car look much cleaner and gets rid of that ugly grime looking rust on the side-skirts of cars. However, unfortunately there is no way of getting rid of it on both the Xbox and PS2 versions of the game. The nearest to getting your car looking "clean" would be to enter a Pay'n'Spray or another place of the sort, and give it an all-round black paintjob. And since the grime and dirt on cars is black, the paintjob covers it up leaving it looking clean. smile.gif

 

That's a plus if you're fond of black cars (like I am), too.

It is technically possible to mod the xbox version if your xbox itself is either chipped or softmodded, but it's hardly worth the trouble for the average person. Since this bug is in the game engine itself, the only thing you could actually do is use the "no rust/no dirt" mod, but you might run into format incompatibilities you'd have to remedy.

 

Xbox version 2 may have fixed the problem, but as others have said, you just have to live with it on version 1.

You should keep it on the pavement and not ride it through the dirt and sand then. Then your Sanchez won't get dirty.

 

Back on topic here...I never knew if what you see by the wheels was supposed to be dirt or some sort of damage from crashing into things.

I know, for the PS2 version for me, I just paint it. I know how much you hate the dirt, because when I have a good car, it always gets dirty (I offroad a lot.)

I just started playing SA again, but for some reason the dirty cars annoy me now, I have some of my favourite cars with dirty roofs and sides and whatever, and there is no way to get rid of it. Any mod or anything I can use? I know the patch does it but I don't want to install it, so I was wondering if there was a user made mod to make all cars clean or at least get clean on respray.

Try OffRoader23's No Rust/Dirt mod. Here's a gtagaming link for it; for other download locations, hit the Google.
