Game Crashes on startup


Menasco

Recommended Posts

I have Win XP SP2, 512 MB of RAM, an ATI Mobility Radeon x600, on a Pentium 4 2.something GHz. I've had this problem before but I've forgotten why. I had to format my computer. I reinstalled GTA, installed the directX before, and it goes through the title scenes. When it gets to the actual Loading Title screen it crashes. Please somebody help me.

First off try deleting your 'gta.set file' to see if your game will work after it's deleted, if that doesn't work, try clicking your short cut icon and then set it to run in Windows 98 compatibility mode.

 

I they don't work come back and i'll try to find another solution.

You should find the file by going to,

 

My Documents and then clicking on GTA San Andreas User Files and it should be in there.

Make sure to update all drivers from the chipset manufacturer. Now uninstalll the game fully, delete main game folder, reinstall fully, and apply the 1.01 Patch (No More Hot Coffe by COLD).

You create one by messing around inside of the "Options" menu. Now you are able to delete it again once you update the system drivers.

what options menu since game wont load period

If the game won't start, perhaps you have a different problem. It would be better if you start a new topic stating your problem details rather than using somebody else' topic.

Please consult the posting requirements thread... we don't even know your system specs. It will be helpful to create your own thread, so as to not clog up information not relevant to the thread starter and his problem.

Game just doesn't want to go to where I load or start new game. Gets to the title screen and just crashes.
