San Andreas - Released Today!

GTA: San Andreas - General News | @ 11:45 PM MDT | By Zidane
As you know, San Andreas is available today in North America, for PC and the Xbox console. We've been covering San Andreas news for quite some time, but now it's finally here, and it's time to enjoy it.

For those who are still waiting, you might want to check out the PC requirements, and the screenshots for both PC and Xbox. I've updated some of the galleries with the IGN Xbox "Good Life" preview. Well, I hope you all have fun! We may even see some mods soon. :)

I've seen an official Tech Support answer on a german GTA site. It said there is NO WAY to deactivate pixel shader for San Andreas.

So you CANNOT PLAY IT if you have one of the following cards:

Radeon 7000,7500
GeForce 2 (any ver), GeForce 4 MX (any MX version)
Any other card without pixel/vertex shader...

Sorry people, I know the Gf 4 MX is the best sold video card ever made, but I think it's time for a upgrade now!

True Jay. I hate that I'll have to wait till Friday (I live in Greece) but what makes me more angry is that I'm sure that stores won't even actually have it till next week. I guess I'll order it from Amazon.

......... Why would you play the "hudlum version", if you can't pay for it then you don't deserve the game.

I seriously hope you people that are downloading it are going to pay for it afterwards. If not it wouldnt be hard for rockstar to see this, ask zidane for your ip's and track you down. Hell, if you shouldnt be downloading it anyway.

@ Jay - I can afford the game, easily and i was going to buy the game but then i found out its on a DVD-ROM (i should have known). Anyway since i still really want this, for the mods and increased detail, the only other way i can play it is with a cracked version. i'll most likely buy the original too :o because of the unique booklet that comes with game that looks fantastic, but obviously wont be able to actually play the game.

if you say you won't buy the game because it's on dvd, think about it a dvdrom is about half the price of a new game atm, or even a burner their just a little over

downloading.... I heard that some video cards don't work on GTASA for PC... if that's true.... it's a good idea to download it and check..

(that's a down side for PCs).

Sometimes when I'm playing SA on pc and start a mission my computer reboots after the cutscene starts, I think its either ATI's new drivers, or something with the new directx + my card. :S Anyway, I can still roam the streets for awhile I think :)

PC version has sound problems (this is a review from GameSpot.com)

"All this graphical quality is offset by some serious problems with the sound. Testing on three different machines that exceed the recommended system specs got us three results. On one machine, we didn't experience any audio glitches. On another, the audio simply cut out a lot, leaving you to drive around with only music to keep you company. It's tough to play when you can't hear your mission descriptions. On the third machine, loading up a save game caused a loud grating noise--which sounded like the bike-riding audio mixed with a helicopter--to scream out from the middle of the Grove. We had to hop in a car and drive away from the area to make the noises stop. Also, the cutscenes occasionally desynched from the audio, making the lip movement appear to be way off."

these are the kinds of things you should check out first before buying it.

Gamestop is known by having VERY HIGH standards. They usually give bad reviews to good games that made a couple of mistakes. Then again (since I dont have the PC version) I might be wrong and it does SUK salty sweaty balls.

edit: btw, the game is completely unplayable with these audio errors.

Yea, I've tracked down my problem to drivers, I tried M$'s version of the drivers, and SA works.. but the volume is deadly low and won't go any higher, so I'm stumbling around the web for working drivers that have good sound :S Hopefully a patch will be released soon.

Theoretical question, if someone were to own the ps2 version would it be wrong to download the pc version? I mean we already showed our support for it once right?

Theoreteical ? No it wouldn't cause a person already have the game on a diffrent plattform. So the question is realy why do u have to pay doubble for a game that u already have ?? but cause to download copyrighted "things" is illegal the correct answerre should be "Yes its werry wrong of u to do sutch a nasty thing like dowloading" But still u'r a free humanbeing and u do so as u please
And yeah u have showed u'r support by buying the ps2 ver of the game but the gamemakers dream is that we should buy all of our games "like we once did" (or not)

Help, someone please! I just bought GTA:SA the other day and have problems with the sound. Some sfx disappear occasionally whilst the radio music never seem to do that. Very annoying. I know that some of you have meet with the same problem, so is there someone who can give any suggestions of what to do to make the sound work properly?
