Weird graphics: GTA SA

Hi, thanks to sygnus21, i can play NWN on my new PC

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:

Imageshack - 16439500.png

Am i doing something wrong or could it be that the game already have the latest patch installed? (Just bought the game)

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

Best regards

Just go through graphics settings one at a time, and see which one produces such weird results.
Last I heard, SA didn't work at all in Win7 xD

Your running GTA SA in 16-bit mode.
You need to change it to 32-bit

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
