My rig can handle everything thrown at it and still laugh. But when I use the draw distance mod, I get a few problems. Everything renders fine as long as I am on the ground or a short distance off the ground. Some building will render the lights in the windows and not the building (downtown). But thats minor, I only say 1 building do that. But get the jetpack and take off, then I start getting large white areas instead of rendered landscape or buildings? Is that a know isse with this. I run the game in 1280x1024 maxed detail and AA 3x My rig is a: AMD64 3400+ 1MB cache 1GB PC3200 Hyper X DFI Lanparty UT 250GB NF3 board BFG Nvidia 6800OC unlocked WD 60GB 7200 RPM HDD

I have the same issue I think San Andreas graphix just suck. Say i look down all i see is blue (like a model) then i look up and it renders back in. Pity its not a bad game. Maybe about 1,000 patches will fix it. although the mod did come with a warning regarding this i think. There is a newer version of the drawdistance mod out soon. I run it 3x AA @ 800x600 Specs are: Amd Athlon 3000+ 1.5 gig of ddr ram Sapphire ATI Radeon 9600xt 256 nvidia Nforce2 On Board sound(latest Drivers)

When I downoaded it, no read me file and the only thing filefront says is increases viewing distance, no install directions or warnings if I remember. Yea when I look up it does that too. I dont think the graphics suck. You have to remember, if they used something like the source engine, you could not render a game on our cards with the map it has or the draw distance it has. GTA migfht get away with the farcry engine. They had to sacrifice the engine a bit to get the details they have in that game in.

I have not played enough with it to see if I like it. I have the wheel skin on to change wheels. But thats the 1st bug I have encountered and had no problem with any HL2 stuff yet.
