Method For V2 Users To Complete V1 SnPs

Question

Ryan

 

Method For V2 Users To Do V1 SnP's

So V2 users can Do V1 SnP requests

 

Purpose

The purpose of this is for V2 players to be able to do Snp's for V1 users, or to be able to play V1 save files. (Ex. A V1 Snp request,A V1 Chain game) It really annoyed me that I couldn't play V1 so that’s why I tried to figure this out, and so other people on GTAF could play V1 also.

 

 

Instructions On How To Do It.

 

To do this there are 3 pretty basic steps.

 

Step 1

 

For step one, what you need to do is follow this.

My Computer>Local Disk C Or D>Program Files>Rockstar Games>GTA San Andreas>Data

 

Once you are here you need to make 2 new folders. One you will call V1 and the other you will call V2. Go back to the Data Folder. There you should see a folder called script. Go into that. In that folder there will be 2 files. One called Main.scm and another called Script.img. Make a copy of each and put them on your desktop or someplace were they are easy to get to.

 

Go back and copy them again. Since you are playing V2 you will take these and put them into the V2 folder you just made. Step 1 Done

 

 

Step 2

 

Next go to this link to download the V1 files.

 

These are in RAR file format so you will need WinRAR to open them. Once you get them opened. Take them and put them in the V1 folder you made earlier. Once they are there copy them and put them with the V2 ones you copied earlier.

 

The reason for this is in case you mess something up that way your not completely screwed over.

 

So by now you should have 2 files in each folder. Once called main.scm and another called script.img. Inside the script folder there should still be the V2 files. You are now going to remove them from there so the folder is empty. I don’t care how just get rid of them from there. Step 2 Complete

 

 

Step 3

 

For step 3 this involves downloading the SA Downgrader. Go to the link provided Once It is downloaded it should be in the San Andreas User Files. If not, check to see where you downloaded and go from there.

My Documents>San Andreas User Files

GTA SA Downgrader Patch 10mb

Follow the instructions with it. Once you have this installed you are all most done. The reason for this is that the SA Downgrader changes things in all that programming stuff. I makes it think that it is V1 and that it can run V1 save files. But if you just download it with out this other stuff it wont do anything.Step 3 Complete

 

 

Changing Scripts

 

To Change scripts there are thrree ways to do this. You can take the V1 scripts and copy and paste them into the script folder if you are playing a V1 game. The same for V2.

 

The second way is easyer, if you are going to play a V1 save file, rename the folder with the V1 scripts, "Script". If you then want to play a V2 save File after that just rename the V1 foler, V1 again and replace the V2 with Script.

 

The third way invovles using rubregg's script switcher. I am not very familiar with it, but I does work with my way. You can find rubregg's script switcher here.

 

 

 

FAQ

 

Q: Will this work with game that have mods installed?

A: Yes, It will.

 

Q: I just downloaded a V1 Save file and when I try to play SA the game crash's, why?

A: You most likley dont have the V1 scripts in.

 

Q: I just downloaded a V2 Save file and when I try to play SA the game crash's, why?

A: You most likey dont have the V2 scripts in.

 

Q: Why do I need the SA Downgrader Patch?

A: The Downgrader patch makes the game think it is V1. The Patch fools the game into thinking that V1 save files have the same ID as a V2 save file.

 

Q: Is there a way for V1 users to play V2?

A: Yes, check out pdescobar's guide here.

 

Q: I cant get this to work, can someone help me?

A: Make a post in this topic or send me (ryan92) a PM

Sorry, but this forum does not deal with multiplayer. Ask for help on the official SA-MP forums.

Sweet jesus. Please don't post that text that big ever again.

 

Yes, you can run both version of SA with this. All you have to do is replace the script files with the version you want to play.

The Links in Step Two of the first posting are DEAD, 'copyright' infringements it says.

Undoubtedly because distributing game files is a copyright infringement.

Someone could make a diff patch.
