San Andreas Patch (V1.01)

GTA: San Andreas - Rockstar/Take2 News | @ 02:03 AM MDT | By Zidane
Rockstar finally has a new patch available for GTA: San Andreas. It fixes a lot of problems, and it's only 11.2 MB. Below is a list of additions and fixes, included in this patch.
ADDITIONS
Added support for 720p and 1080i HDTV resolutions (may also do 1080p, not sure).

Version Number displayed on game title screen.


BUGS FIXED

*Issue fixed on machines where the OS has been updated (one OS installed over top of another) and has 2 registry keys that point to the users "My Documents" folder (we incorrectly used to assume the Win2000 folder, now correctly uses the last installed OS folder) - users know this as "user account period bug".

*Crash when entering advanced display options with only 32 meg of video ram (32 meg of video ram is not supported and will only allow use of 640*480 in 16 and 32 bit. At this resolution it is likely you will see the "Black Roads" LOD problem). We do NOT however disallow machines with 32 meg of video ram from running GRAND THEFT AUTO: San Andreas.

*Crash when entering advanced display options on a dual monitor machine after :- starting game on primary monitor in maximum resolution, exiting, starting again in maximum resolution on secondary monitor. Secondary monitor maximum resolution had to be greater than maximum resolution of primary monitor.

*Destroyed cars now are correct colour.

*Dirty cars now able to get clean.

*Numpad 5 key is now mappable when re-defining controls.

*Issue on all machines where certain collisions caused parts of the audio system to crash (sound effects, cutscene audio - only radio keeps going) - users know this as "Rain / Thunderstorm bug".

*Improvements to DVD streaming.

*Audio problems in interior / exterior transitions and getting in / out of cars fixed.

*Some fixes to ensure reverb is not present at certain save points.

*Improvements to dance game timings.

*Crash occuring when using "user radio files" while the frame limiter is disabled.


Your saved games will still work, though your settings may have changed once upgraded to version 1.01, so you might wanna take a quick run through that. To ensure you have successfully upgraded your version of the game, the version number 1.01 will be visable from the main page (as stated above). Also, if you have the hot coffee hack installed, this will disable it.

You can download the Cold Coffee patch from Rockstar's, nomorehotcoffee.com.

It has ups and downs; but I don't like it that it will disable Hot Coffee. I could just backup the original main.scm and script.img and replace them with the originals.

Edit: Nothing is harmed. The Girlfriend house interiors are still there, just the code is unused.

whats so great about pixel porn anyways. if your that desperate to constantly use hot coffee, you need a g.f. frankly id rather have the cars being able to come clean opposed to seeing a poorly animated sex scene

You should've read my edit. Oh well, it doesn't bother me anymore, I guess it's for people who fail at sex.

Bull. It just crashed now, while I was on the Tanker submissions while I was listening to User Track Player. This happened to me two times in a row.

question: how do you clean the cars? do the carwashes work of something? Or do you just wait for ran or something?

I already have mods that fixes most of the bugs that patch fixes, and I don't use the hot coffee mod anyway, so I don't need this

I truly think the clean car thing is great, and could care less about the sex scenes, but personally, i hate using 56k so i have to wait a good 30 minutes to get the patch.... and for anyone who didnt know, grove street is crips, and ballas are bloods, vagos are brownside or something... lol and i dont know about cholos... but cholo means gangster an spanish.

I installed this patch, and it said that the original disc could not be found or authenticated. I reinstalled the game, disabled anything that could make the game have problems, and still does not work. I'm running the game without a patch.

Any tips? Yes, the disc is in perfect condition.

This patch helped me a little with graphic problems (such as peds missing parts of their bodies). However it has now added a sound problem, the guns sound slightly off and pansieish, words are sometimes missed when sentences are being spoken and alot of sound flickers on and off (including when turning channels on the radio). I guess i gotta take the ruff with the smooth.

Also really like the clean cars, but hasn't fully solved the "rain" sound issues. Now they occur not as often! :)

First time i installed it my comp got majotly hosed. A windows repair disk and system restore later it was working again. I scanned the file for viruses and got nil, I reinstalled the patch and didn't have to re-install anything else. I've only had one in-game crash since installing the patch.
