Game wont start: Black Screen [Windows 10]

Question

ClaudeIzABadAzz

Same issue as VC, I go to start the game and I get a black screen. I've tried compatability settings, but nothing.

 

I'm on Windows 10 Home, using the original SA disc.

Specs:

16GB RAM

GeForce GTX 1070

AMD Ryzen 5 1600X

how many factors did you eliminate to have a rough idea what it could be?

What modifications have you made to the game?

When you say "Original" disc you mean the Version ONE... did you install the v1.01 patch?

Did the game work before you started modifying it?

Yes, but it's been working modded for about 2 years, so it can't be the mods. By the way, they're more like patches than mods.

Then first Delete the GTA_sa.set File
reboot, and play the game.

Remove all the "Patches" & modifications.

Uninstall the game completely.
Reinstall the game.
Play it to ensure it is working.
Start reinstalling the mode ONE at a Time.
Play the game to ensure it is still working.
Until you get to the one that screwing up the game.

OR

If you can start removing the Mods one at a time. And try playing

 

 

If it still does not work try asking in the Modding Forums.

I'm having the same issue in VC, and apparently it's becasue I'm on Windows 10. I'll try your suggestions.
