Despite that San Andreas has great in game optimization, it still has a launcher for changing the resolution.

I don't mind this, but it won't let me save custom resolutions.

 

How do I get rid of it?

 

Specs:

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Monitor count: 2

GPU: Gainward GT 440 1GB

CPU: i7 920

RAM: 4GB DDR3

When I start the game a pop up offers me the choice of screens and resolution for each screen.

When I select a screen and resolution it will offer me that same screen and resolution as a prime choice each time I restart the game yet still would allow for a different choice.

I don't know of a way to Only go to one, and I wouldn't like to be forced to a specific one, either.

A 'bump' is acceptable when the Topic is at the bottom of the page.

 

Try disconnecting one monitor before playing the game.

WHAT!?

Will San Andreas utilize a comandline.txt file? If so you might be able to just stick a text file in the game directory name it commandline and within that file specify the resolution you want. The comandline file will override the launcher and force the game to display the desired resolution.

The link is for GTAIV command line codes, but it might be worth a shot for San An.

 

 

If that doesn't do the trick then I would look for some sort of setting or config file and try to edit the values in notepad. I have ran into this issue with Quake 3 and manually editing the q3.cfg file fixed the issue there. I haven't run into this problem with San Andreas and I don't currently have the game installed, so spitballing is about the best I have for ya. Sorry man.

GTA SA does not support any kind of command lines. That screen pops up when you have either two screens or two graphics cards, it might not support custom resolutions.

I have one GPU.

And it also happens to pop up if you have ONE monitor.

This didn't happen before but now it does.

From what I remember of SA if you set your resolution in-game then it should be that way when you run it again and show up in the launcher that way as well.

If you want to stop it from showing up when you have just 1 monitor, then try deleting (rename it just in case you want to switch back for some reason) the settings file.

That's not really what I was hoping for confused.gif

I don't have San An installed. Even if I did I don't have your computer hardware to re-create the issues you seem to have with your software. We can give you our best guess at a possible solution based on the information you provide... so, yeah it looks like this is about it.

 

Good luck to ya. icon14.gif
