I'm familiar with the PC version of GTA SA.. did you by any chance install the no disk hack? That will cause any patches to fail
Thanks for the necessery information! You guys suck. Only cuz u two are ugly as hell doesnt mean you should put your agressions out on someone that just want help making a game run properly.

Anyway. The THING is that i want to ONLY play the game in full-hd so no other options are possible for me. AND. Neither of you guys has answerd my main question. To make it clear so even idiots can understand:

Im asking how to install the patch and why its not working. So, does your puny, irrational little brains understand the question?

If you two guys just are gonna post meaningless crap in this thread, then just get the hell out of here. Get some bloody solidarity.

Im gonna ask the seller of the game and see what they can offer to help me.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

greentwig, regardless of your offensive post (which was reported and will be removed) I went one step firther and installed the game myself.

The game was produced in 2005. That's 5 friggin' years ago. Full HD is impossible. The best I was able to do is get a resolution of 1680x1050 instead of a full HD of 1920x1080 and regardless of Jacob's unfriendly post, he is right. You need to set a proper resolution which will can display all the graphics in 32bit colors instead of 16bit and the problem of washed graphics will go away, but full HD is impossible... And IMHO even with 1680x1050 resolution the graphics still look awful.

But now over to another game i have: GTA SA.

It works, but the graphics are terrible! Check this image to see what i mean:

Imageshack - 52414445.png

When i turn on the lowest res the weird graphics go away. With low res i cant enjoy the game as much as i would in FULL-HD.

I have been searching around for information on how to solve the issue and so far ive learned that the latest SA-patch might solve it.

I tried to install the patch exactly as the readme says, but this msg comes up:

I love NWN but i really want to play this game too, so please help me out!

Best regards

You have to set your resolution. for example 800x600x32 I bet you have the resolution seted at 16 bit screen.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Try this...

Update Directx click here to download it.

Open the installer and it should start the update process.

Once finished, launch the game and go to: options, then Display, then advanced.

Now at the bottom should be an option called resolution, select the one you want to use but make sure its 32-bit, hit enter so select it.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

uninstall the game your at the very start of the game so saves shouldnt be a problem

install the game again patch the game right after you install it the reason why you cant it looks like you are using a no cd crack/patch which makes the game go without the cd and the patch checks to see if you have done that or not

after you have patched it if you want to play it without the cd/dvd you have to find the same crack i cant tell you here against forum rules i think

anyways thats what google is for

also fo what Rjck said

Just to keep things straight, you're only supposed to hear the airflow from the graphics card, right? I just got a new one and it kind of sounds like the fan is grinding. I'm about to RMA it. I got an EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti.
