San Andreas Downgrader

Recommended Posts

Natasha

Just wondering if I should consider doing this to my install. It's a download via Steam so I don't know if it'll be fine or mess up my install etc. Plus right now I've only been adding buildings into the game, I'm assuming this doesn't make much difference for that kind of modification?

It is made primarily for the steam download since it is the most incomplete version of GTA:SA out there. I strongly reccomend watching Vadim's video added to the first post.

And no, it should not affect any file replacement mods but you should probably do the downgrade on the clean install and then add the mods again, as described in the video.

Will do then, many thanks, being kinda new to the whole modding business personally (only ever been a viewer) I wasn't aware so many things had been removed/disabled and how lackluster the Steam version is clearly!

It says that the file is harmful.

I keep getting this error.

 

59a84e50d5b843beaf5ce505790e359b.png

 

Steps:

Download the latest.exe v1.3.4.0

Put it inside a folder here: D:\Users\USER\Desktop\GTA SA Downgrader\

Open it.

Let it download the patch files.

Once it finish, at the very end, that error is thrown.

If I click OK, it will re-download patches.part2.zip

And stuck in a loop, where I get the error again.

 

Thank you a lot for this though. Can't wait to try it.

I'll look into it later. You should be able to use the full package in the OP for now.

Ok, now I kind of know what happens.

 

When the downgrader finished downloading the zip files, it will extract them to "patches".

That's where it fails.

The same happens with the full package. When it download the zip fixes, it fails to extract them.

So, the full updater is also useless for me for now.

 

I'm in no hurry.

Thank you a lot for the hard work into this. I hope you manage to fix it up and also maybe release it for other GTA's

The full package doesn't download any patches - only mods IF you select them and any available updates. When you extract the full package you should end up with an EXE and a patches folder. If you have an antivirus/malware, it could be blocking something - try disabling it.

That's what I meant, the mods (I called them fixes, sorry)

No antivirus here. Defender is also disabled.

Fix#1

After installing "x" translation, my game gives me this!
q8b0oADm.png

 

If you are experiencing with this kind of a problem, then you probably installed Polish (Russian and other translation) over the "Remastered GUI" mod.

 

To fix that you can either disable Remastered GUI mod, or remove

"root folder\modloader\remasteredGUI\models" "fonts.txd"
"root folder\modloader\remasteredGUI\models" "fonts.dat

 

Sadly, you have to say goodbye to HD fonts, but there is no other way.

Yes, but it will automatically start scanning the folder to see if any of the files can be downgraded - just incase something failed the first time or if someone had to restore an original file. It's particularly useful for people who used the MTASA installer. It proclaims to downgrade your game - but it only downgrades the EXE and ignores the rest.

 

I did forget to add a prompt asking if the user wants to skip the scan for faster access to the mods, tools, and revert options. Unfortunately Windows 10 update seems to have hosed the laptop I was working on so I can't add that at the moment.

You know what's still missing?

A fix for the fix. Aka the localization mod for italian, german and french.

EDIT: then why not, you could provide fan ones too (polish and russian I think?)

These languages were always available in European version of the game. Since the downgrader installs American exe, you can choose Italian (German & French) language only in the downgrader by clicking on "tools".

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Fix number two.

 

If you are experiencing with blue skies & missing textures with SkyGFX+Samp (even with SAMP restore graphic)

dzSVd1hl.jpgwrbqEC5l.jpg

 

then use this trick from my video:

I have three dudes who said that it works and one that it doesn't. No clue.

Please, if it actually helped you, inform me about it in this topic, thanks!

PM is a personal message. Sort of like Email - but contained within the forum.

 

All Steam versions need to be downgraded. Rockstar never updated the read me for the Steam release.

 

EDIT: He's infected with Ramnit, which injects itself into EXEs - hence why the downgrader couldn't detect the version.

I'm having an issue where if I'm not playing with frame limiter enabled the game just freezes on a cutscene. As in just black screen, however for the start of the game during the Francis Intl Airport sequence I'll be able to get to my character but I'm still stuck on the "Francis Intl Airport" screen but I can hear my character moving and swinging his fists and whatnot.

 

If I enable frame limiter it functions fine, but I don't want to do this before every cutscene.

 

I enabled every mod except for mod loader and the multiplayer related ones.

Wrong thread.

And the solution is simple: just keep it enabled.
