Default Grand Theft Auto - San Andreas - 10-02-2008, 07:17 AM



The game works really well my dell mini is
16 gig SDD
1 gig ram

all you have to do is set the video settings to low but everything ells can be high like the draw distance.
loads fast too. Faster then my
p4 hp with a 128mb video card

ps. i played the game off of deamon tools not from a external dvd-rom drive.

oh wow, that pretty awesome, is that a 800 x 600 stretched resolution or has it been set to 1024 x 600 ?

Did you installed it on SSD AND keep the image on SSD (3gb+3gb) to play it ?

I got the original protected game disk. Could I install it from external drive and use deamon tools so it doesn't require to keep an image mounted on SSD?

I don't have an external dvd drive so on my desktop i ripped the disk to an iso and then put it on a flash pen drive and plugged that into my computer. I then mounted it on my mini using magicdisc and installed it, (didn't take too long) and got the "no cd" patch for San Andreas from game copy world. The link to the patch can be found here:

http://m0001.gamecopyworld.com/games..._andreas.shtml

I used the "GTA: San Andreas v1.0 [ENGLISH] No-CD/Fixed EXE".

To get it to work:
1) Make a copy of "gta_sa" which is found in the San Andreas directory somewhere else.
2) Extract the exe from the file you downloaded
3) Move it into the San Andreas directory and click "yes" to overite the other one.
4) The game can now be played without having the cd in or any mounting!

It runs very well on the mini however do make sure you turn the graphics settings down to low, it does however sometimes run a little slow and the keyboard controls take some getting used to after playin this game so much on the PS2!

Hi, I'm kind of stuck right now. I can't seem to get GTA: San Andreas to work on my dell mini 10. I turned my original disc into an iso and mounted onto my mini's hdd. It installs without incident, but when I try to run the game, it says "Cannot find 800x600x32 video mode". I don't know how to resolve this. I have even tried downloading isos from the internet. How were you successful in playing the game?

mini 10 or 10v, since mini 10 has the gma 500, it probably doesnt support it.
