There is no official patch for the Steam version. What patch are you using?

Have you tried changing the sensitivity from the Controls options menu? Delete the gta_sa.set file from the User Files folder and then try changing it.

The steam version says 3.0 at the bottom right of the main menu. And yes when i change the sensitivity to low and aim the gun then look up or down it is the same as when it was about half way.

 

Also what "lil weasel" said is what my problem is.

Try changing CPU affinity. Start the game and Alt+Tab to desktop. Go to Windows Task Manager > Processes > Right-click on gta_sa.exe > Set Affinity > Uncheck CPU 1 > OK.

Now, go back to the game and see if it has made any difference.

Nah, I understand your problem. This is a clean installation, right? I mean, you're not using any mods, are you?

 

Try running the game in Windows 98 compatibility mode and see if it changes anything.

 

If that doesn't help, tell us what type of mouse you have. What's its make and model? Is it wired or wireless?

Yea it's a clean install and compatibility mode does't work for steam games but i have a no-cd crack that works and i tried compatibility mode and it made no difference.

 

The mouse i'm using is a wired optical mouse not sure of the modal but the make is Trust (I got it free and i'm upgrade my m&k soon)

I know I'm years late, but,

 

if you downgrade to the original retail version of the game, it should fix the Y axis sensitivity bug.

 

http://gtaforums.com/topic/753764-san-andreas-downgrader/

 

I highly recommend downgrading because it will allow you to mod and restore some functions that were taken out for (seemingly) no reason when the steam version was made.

Just be sure to launch the game from the directory in which you installed the downgraded version of the game for, do not launch it from steam or you will most likely crash.

 

sorry for being years late but i hope i help any newcomers that end up finding this bug.
