GTA San Andreas HD Mod


Looking for more GTA: San Andreas secrets, collectibles, guides and cheats? Check out Game Front’s Video Walkthroughs App to keep up-to-date on our newest tips and tricks.


Sweet mother of mercy; is that a screenshot from Grand Theft Auto or Need for Speed? I never thought I’d be drooling over the graphics of a six year old game, but the GTA San Andreas HD mod features some jaw-dropping cars.

The HD mod preserves the original San Andreas gameplay while enhancing the visuals with new textures, vehicles, effects, weather, weapons, sounds, and more. Configurable graphic settings allow high-end computer gamers to savor the full HD quality, while still granting a playable experience for those with older rigs.

This mod features:

-HDR-textures
-Hi-poly car models
-Enhanced reflections
-Improved smoke, explosions, fire effects
-Pixel shader 3.0 supported
-Compatibility with previous save games
-New hi-poly pedestrians
-New wheels
-New accessories for vehicles
-New clothes for CJ
-Motion blur
-New vegetation
-New handling.dat
-More cars and pedestrians on the streets

Behold, and weep as you realize these beauties will be jacked, smashed, flipped, riddled with bullets, and eventually reduced to a smoldering pile of scrap.


 
Download link.
 
And for those who want a middle-ground option between the high and low-res options,
this small file should do the trick.

This mod sucks, it just regroups many mods like SRT3 (By BLITZ), ENB Series (By Boris) and a guy’s EB Settings, I know those pics, you can find them here: http://gtacarpassion.blogspot.com/2009_04_01_archive.html#6795763896434352464
Just scroll down and you’ll see them all and even more..

Hey man why aren’t the cars from the pictures in the game? All i see are some GTA III cars and other HD SA Cars? … Or did you stole the pics from carpassion?

Pfff, those awful sounds. Sorry to say but the graphics don’t change for the better if you ask me and the sounds are just horrible, I played it for ten minutes then threw it out. Cars sound like lawnmowers and your footsteps like cheap drums. Kudos for the effort but no thank you.

Hey, that looks great. I definitively want to try this one but unfortunately, I don’t speak Portuguese and the Google translation is pure crap.

Somebody could make a quick summarize about the instructions in English please ?

Would be great.. unfortunately for those of us new to the GTASA modding scene its absolutely rubbish considering the readme is not in english and therefore impossible to install. Hell i’d even try a translator to decipher it if I had even the slightest idea what language it is written in.

INSTRUCTIONS TRANSLATED:

Mod total conversion that transformed her original gta gta a lot prettier.

Mod includes:

Used in high definition (reworked)
Textures HD
HUD
Playermodel HD
ENB Series (with three settings)
Tool for performing the modification.
Icon for the game
New sounds
New animations
New Special Effects
Cleo
StreamMemFix included

HOW TO USE THE TOOL
—————————————

The mod includes the ALCI IMG EDITOR program, the usage is very simple, just open it, clicking the briefcase icon (open / open) select the “gta3.img” in the Models folder of GTA SA. To add files, just hit CTRL + I or click the add icon (remove if exists), select the files you want to add, and after finishing, click on the floppy disk (save).

CARE
—————

Keep a clean copy of GTA SA installed on your computer (install a clean copy would be gta without other mods installed). Back up, if no other backup copy.

INSTALLATION
——————

Open the IMG EDITOR ALCI within the Tools folder, open your gta gta3.img, and add ALL files in the folder “Add this in gta3.img” (Hint: Press Ctrl + A to add all at once).

After that, save the file and open the Player.img, also found in the models. Add this file, all who are inside the “Add this in player.img”, when finished, also save and close the program.

Now open the folder “Put this here in the gta root folder” and copy all files to the folder where you installed GTA (where gta_sa.exe), will ask to replace, click yes to all.

If you want the ENB Series, just enter the folder that contains the ENB Series already configured, and copy and paste according to your video card. It is not necessary to run the game if you already have a version configured according to your video card, just copy it to the game folder.

SMALL PROBLEMS
——————————-

Before contacting me, I say that already there are some small problems will be resolved in the next posteriormentes versions, they are:

Sound loading is not the original game (GTAIV sound)
> Yes, the sound of loading is not the original, but will remain as it has so far not found any decent music remixed to put in place of the original.

Sometimes the game comes out alone, and displays the error report from microsoft
> Okay, this included StreamMemFix serves to prevent the loss of textures, because the game engine was not made to load textures in HD, and has a limit, without StreamMemFix, it simply loads the possible, and when the latter with the of memory lets you load other textures, StreamMemFix serves to stop it, but it is not a final version, so it can present problems sometimes.

Some sounds of rain, guns, or cars with out problem
> How does sound mod is still in the first version and is developed by third parties, but some things can come out in disagreement with expectations.

By activating ENB Series by pressing Shift + F12, the game comes out or crashes
> Your video card does not support. Delete the file d3d9.dll.

After installing my game was crashing and low FPS
> Your computer is not enough to run the game with decency.

————

Recommended Settings:
Pentium IV 2Ghz or higher with VGA ATI 1900 / Nvidia 7300 or higher, 1GB of memory.

No other modifications are allowed without permission.

It does not work :( When i try to run gta-sa.exe, an error occurs and it says that there is no ov_time_seek_page in vorbisfile.dll. I have downloaded my gta sa from steam, so is that the problem or is the vorbisfile.dll just invalid? Btw. The screenshots look really amazing :D I’d like to be able to use this mod soon.

All the screenshots are REAL, the cars are just other car mods used for the screenshot with RIkintosh’s HD Textures in the background.

Icehawk

On July 20, 2013 at 8:05 pm

The mod is extremely slow in render, even on lowest settings. In fact the ‘slowness’ of render is uniform across all quality options of ENB series. I think it’s not utilizing the graphics card effectively.
I’m using a laptop with Core i7 2620M, Nvidia Geforce GT520M and 4GB of RAM. Nothing fancy, but should be able to manage the modded game on pretty high settings if the render isn’t so delayed…
(If it helps, I’m mainly loading the game into Las Venturas, and it’s a complete disaster because 90% of objects are there but invisible because the models haven’t been rendered (and won’t be, for another 5-10 second time lag).
Any help? Thanks
