Are there any drawbacks to using Windows 98/Me compatibility mode?

​According to this forum the compatibility mode can fix sound issues. I hear no spoken audio outside of cutscenes.

​I don't know why the game doesn't detect my save files anymore, fortunately I've only completed the first mission. Also all settings were resetted. Now San Andreas crashes instantly when I try to run the game without compatibility mode. I don't recall doing any other changes than modifying exe properties.

​For some reason SA requires administrator priviledges now.

​EDIT: I was about to start playing, but the game crashes also in compatibility mode when creating a new save.

Does the game have a "crash log" that I could check? I've CLEO and everything installed.

​I probably have to verify game cache, I may have overwritten files. I'll just backup Mod Loader folder.

​I have overwritten frontend1.txd file, if that's required for the game to function.

Get Rid of any Mods.

If you have the DVD (v2) or the STEAM registered Down Load (v3) your game must be "Downgraded" to remove programming that is intended to prevent Modding, except some minor scripts.

 

If you have the First Edition game are you playing with the DVD in the drive.

I have enough experience to understand downgrading.

​I only had Silent Patch installed along with other patches when I first encountered audio issues.

What OS are you on? Last time I encountered those issues was XP.

 

But no, using 98 compat mode is a bad idea. You get Documents relocated to some weird dir, game forced to run on only one core and forced elevation. Compatibility modes are p. much never a solution for GTA problems.

Sorry, I forgot to mention. I'm on Windows 8.1 64-bit.

​At first I get "missing plugin.dll" error, then the game straight out crashes. I don't know what has caused this, I only remember removing the duplicate gta_sa.exe left from an earlier installation (the files were identical).

​Please do a quick check if there's something extra/missing in the main folder:

​FILES:

[removed, did a fresh install]

well, plugin.dll is a part of some plugins / new opcodes by dk22. And do some work by yourself!!!!! Delete all mods and see if it works. IF yes, add one mod after another, till you get to the mod which needs the plugin.dll...
