How can I fix lag on GTA SA

Recommended Posts

totalnuke

Hello. I'm having troubles with some lags I did everything I could, i replaced effects, installed memory2024 and edited the settings in advanced(max distance,high,1024xsomething..). But it still lags cause i have few really good graphic mods installed(cars xD).
Im using windows 7 home premium service pack 1 ,4gb ram,64bit,my gta is installed on my desktop in rockstar games,processor is i-3 2350 2.30 ghz

Also if this helps my pc cant take all RAM memory only 3.90? What do I have to do to make it use all of it? (im using dell laptop)

Buy a better PC, there isn't much you can do to solve frame rate problems.

Set Visual FX Quality to Low. Thats the only way to fix lag. Or else your mods might be slowing it down.

You can run gta sa smoothly with that configuration even in high settings , i think that you didn't install the appropriate driver for your graphic card.

You're an idiot. Deal with it, your computer can't handle the game.

From your given information I can assume that you got no dedicated graphics card, only the IGP of the Core i3 which pretty much s*cks d*ck.

 

First of all _Jack is a complete moron. This 'speed code' alters the speed of the game like the cheat code where you can speed it up/slow it down, it has nothing to do with the framerate.

If uninstalling the HQ mods isn't an option, reduce the resolution, set FX Quality to Very Low and disable AA.

 

About your RAM 'issue'... Your PC takes advantage of the full RAM, Windows shows 'only' 3.9 GB because 1 Gigabyte are 1024 Megabyte, 1 Megabyte 1024 Kilobyte, etc.

even ... quad core pc's will have lags ..

SA only runs on one core, so that argument is invalid.

 

Its all about balancing the "performance vs visual" invisible meter.

I reduced the resolution, fx quality is very low but what is AA?

So youre saying my pc is just showing 3.90 usable but its 4? Then good :p

what is AA?

AA means Anti Aliasing. It basically smooths the jaggered lines on the edge of models. For ex-

 

0,1425,sz%3D1%26i%3D161082,00.jpg

 

You should see jaggered lines being smooth when AA is turned 6x to the right. But to learn easily-

It has nothing to do with modding, it's an option in the display settings...

Have you maybe thought about getting a console?

Console? Why would I need a console?


These were my options from the very beginning of lags, 2qkkklg.png
and my gta_sa.exe crashes in the game, also I have 1 big issue, I cant load my save game, once i go for it it just shows me black screen for 10 secs and then starts new game..
EDIT: A mod was suspicious for me so I uninstalled it and the thing with load game error is fixed, I hope.. works for now atleast :p

Do what Amir027 said , its 99% that your graphic card driver is either not installed/outdated , or that you didn't install directx .

Try these settings:

Draw distance - 5

Frame limitter - on

Visual FX Quality - Low

Mip mapping - off

Anti Aliasing - off

Resolution 640 X 480 X 32

 

You can find these options on Display setup > Advanced

 

Reply me if you still have problems.

Draw distance 6
Frame limiter on

Visual FX Quality - Low

Mip mapping - on

Anti Aliasing - 1

Resolution 1024x768x32
This works just fine and if i would use ur resolution it would take 50% of my screen only because i need the highest resolution to fit the screen but then it lags :p

Turn off Anti Alias. GTA SA is capped to run at 25 FPS (You can turn off Frame Limiter. But the game would have serious bugs). Anti Aliasing would try to improve the jaggered lines of smoke particles, fog and rain also to increase lag.
