These games are surely great, nonetheless they have some issues. This modification attempts to fix some of them. Featured fixes: GTA SA: (last update: 22.02.2020)  DOWNLOAD SilentPatchSA GT

In the wake of recent events here and on Discord, I would like to make a somewhat official announcement, since I start feeling like what is happening starts taking a toll on my well being:  

🎂 Happy Birthday SilentPatch! On December 29th 2013, the very first SilentPatch builds were released! 🎂   For this occasion, new builds have been released for GTA III, Vice City and San Andr

Using this patch for GTA III Steam version 1.1 here and its great love it thank-you.

 

Having a problem though, whenever I die the game freezes. Car explosion, drowning, beating, and gunshot all cause game to freeze at moment of death.

 

Running Ginput and some textures, but even with them disabled I still can't die with SilentPatchIII.asi or it freezes. Music keeps playing, no steam overlay or buton inputs work except esc key. Hitting ESC closes game and states "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program" no real error code.

 

Other than that it seems to work great as long as I'm alive :) Any ideas what could be wrong here?

That's an odd one. I'll have to check it.

 

 

 

does your fix included this fix?

Nope.

Downgraded my Steam 1.1 with downgrader .bat. Everything works great no lock/freeze on deaths. Still odd it wouldn't work with Steam 1.1 exe

That's the fire glow effect, which was also missing.

Yeah, you're right. Lack of this effect in GTAIII confused me. Not sure about release PS2 version but screens from early build shows that it was implemented a long time ago.

2014 is THE year of SA modding, first the revolutionary Mod Loader (proper sound mods amongst other things), now this...
I still haven't picked up my jaw, it dropped so hard :orly:

Holy f*cking sh*t

 

PS: I stalked James' channel and found out you guys, for the VCS PC Edition mod, ported the VC rotors to SA down to a T. Hell of a f*cking good job, could you also port the VC blades to SilentPatch, like, have it as an option? or it depends on the .dff itself?

That's just the alpha texture difference, the method and style is pretty much the same, for those of you interested, this code which Silent has used for the rotors (with _DK's fix) has been on a bit of a journey:

 

Started with main code from Vice City PC > III Aircraft Mod > Vice City Stories PC Edition > Back to San Andreas PC :p

They did what was thought to be impossible, I wonder what they are going to do next for VCSPCE and/or SilentPatch for SA.

 

PS: On a totally unrelated note, what the f*ck is this new thing I see in the forums with people adding 3D glasses to their avatars and signatures? is this some Doctor Who thing?

Ash is right about the textures, that second video I posted is with the V police maverick and the rotors look a lot better with the texture they come with. Although, if a modder doesn't create the rotors correctly, it can cause weird issues with alpha textures. Oh, and the 3d glasses thing started from here I believe.

Follow my logic: Until last week, all we had were failed attempts to bring back PS2 rotor blades to PC. And it was said that trails were cut off from PC for good...

Trails weren't cut from the PC version, they weren't in any version of San Andreas.

 

EDIT: looks like that Polish fella bet me to it.

You mean motion blur? Because that could be done by the right person.

Yeah well... whatever it had on the PS2 that gave dat look

It's likely due to the video output on CRT TVs or something, which would be hard to reimplement unless if you smear Vaseline on your monitor. :p

SweetFX does have a CRT Shader if thats what you are after .. ?

They're referring to the yellowish tint the PS2 image of SA has. That's definitely not something the TV does, it's something in-game.

A Cathode Ray Tube television's screen is actually blurred a bit,since the RGB pixel count is lesser on a CRT screen.

 

Also,great job by Silent and _DK,"he's just being silent",but that does mean he's doing something good. ;)

That yewllowish tint was actually a bug with the PS2 graphics synthesizer, The PCSX2 emulator proves this as it fixes this issue and displays the colors like the PC version.

Though PCSX2 in Hardware mode can't display postprocess, that's why the game looks darker. And there's no thermal/night vision nor underwater camera effect.

What? do you think that an emulator is more accurate than the real hardware? LOL

If there was a bug on Graphics Synthesizer, EVERY PS2 game would have color issues. There's no bug at all with the PS2 hardware. What you see in the Playstation 2 version of San andreas is just an post-processing effect,nothing more. And it does more than just making the screen yellow . C'mon,don't spread wrong info!
