[REL] SA Window

Recommended Posts

SA Window Release

 

SA Window is a tool which allows you to play SA in a window. Indeed it already exists but this time you don't have to use a D3D9 hook/proxy DLL (the existing ones don't work for me). Instead this tool modifies how the game checks for supported resolutions; by default the game skips any windowed resolutions, this tool changes that.

 

The windowed resolution is available in both the startup dialog and Advanced Display menu ingame. If you want a specific window resolution then first pick the fullscreen resolution and then select windowed; do this in the Advanced Display menu.

Installation

 

1. Download and install Delfi's ASI Loader from

http://www.gtatools.com/filedb/action.php?action=file&id=19 (gtatools site is down)

http://alexander.sannybuilder.com/Files/ASILoader.rar

 

2. Put SAWindow.asi in SA root folder.

e.g. C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTA San Andreas\

 

3. Enjoy.

Well done. I really missed that! I have this option if TV is enabled at default, but sometimes I shut off that TV function, and SA does not provide that little window. Now it does icon14.gif

Thanks it worked for me. My game runs at 800x600x32 maximum & when i run the game after putting the mod in the game directory it shows windowed & 1024x600x32. Thanks.

 

Cheers,

This tool was created for and tested on the HOODLUM 1.0 cracked executable. It'll most likely not work with any other versions.

That feature was actually incorporated into San Andreas on the start. If I open gta_sa.exe with a resource editor, that device dialog is there wink.gif Nice work btw. tounge.gif

You've bought GTA SA on steam, so you must use the gta_sa.exe from steam right ?
Just 4 posts above you have your answer :

Do you mean I go to the file's of the game and launch "gta_sa.exe" Instead? I don't do that, I just go to my game library on Steam and click Play.

LOL. You need the HOODLUM 1.0 EXE (gta_sa.exe) for a properly work of this modification. Use google for download it or use the Steam Downgrader. Also I don't know if launching the game from Steam library the mod will work.

If it's not launching after reinstalling, that's clearly not mod's/downgrader's fault.

You know...

It's not our fault if R* made such crappy ports. And even crappier patches.

And users can't read readmes

It's working fine but is there a way to make GTA SA remember the setting you put it in ?

Every time is start it it starts off at full screen with very low resolution and I have to change it to windowed in the settings.
