Game goes fast-forward


Recommended Posts

I'm having an annoying situation with SA. Sometimes when I start the game and reload a saved game the game clock goes extremely fast and when I look behind me in the Grove Street safe house, the disk image (save point) rotates very fast and irregularly. Also when I start any missions, all the cut-scenes are skipped for some reason.


Anyone know a fix for this? I have not used any cheats or such. Just installed the game and basically did the first few missions.

My system is AMD 64 X2 5600+, 2 GB RAM, GeForce 8600GT 256 Mb, Win XP SP2

Your dual core processor is the culprit.


Common problem. Common solution. Set the compatibility mode of gta-sa.exe to Windows 98 for a permanent fix, or ALT+TAB out of the game once running, hit open Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL), and in the Processes tab, right-click gta-sa.exe, -> Set Affinity... and uncheck all cores but one.
