SilentPatch is a mod for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, created by CookiePLMonster


GTA SA is a great game, but it possesses some issues. This small plugin addresses several of these.

It focuses mainly on fixing bugs present on PC, but not on PS2 version of the game.

Fixes marked with ** are supported in 1.0, Steam and Rockstar Games Launcher versions.

Fixes marked with * require 1.0.

** 14ms frame delay has been removed. As a result, game now locks properly on 30 FPS instead of 25 FPS

** More precise frame limiter, reducing lag spikes a bit when playing with Frame Limiter on

* Game timers now tick in a more accurate manner, making them not freeze if framerate exceeds 1000 frames per

second; in other words, this fixes occasional freezes on fadeouts if playing with Frame Limiter off

** Mouse should not lock up randomly when exiting the menu on newer systems anymore

** Mouse vertical axis sensitivity now matches horizontal axis sensitivity

** Mouse vertical axis does not lock during camera fadeins now

* NUM5 is now bindable (like in 1.01)

* 16:9 resolutions are now selectable (like in 1.01)

** If the settings file is absent, the game will now default to your desktop resolution instead of 800x600x32

** DirectPlay dependency has been removed - this should improve compatibility with Windows 8 and newer

** Path to the GTA San Andreas User Files directory is now obtained differently, increasing compatibility and

future-proofing the games more

memory bug"

** Fixed a bug causing cheat-spawned melee weapons to be forcibly replaced by other melee weapons upon walking

into a pickup

version of SA

* Dual rear wheels now show up properly (Yosemite, Tanker etc.)

immediately after damaging)

* Toggling car lights on does not make windows invisible when viewed from inside anymore

* Illumination value from timecyc.dat now accepts any float value in 0.0-2.0 ranges, not just 0.0, 1.0 and 2.0

* In addition, if illumination value is absent from the timecycle (like on a stock PC timecycle), the game will

now default to 1.0

* Lights now get casted on vehicles and peds properly - previously, they'd dissapear under some conditions

** In addition, when playing on Visual FX Quality higher than low, the game will now cast up to 6 lights on each

model both indoors and outdoors (on Low details, game's stock behaviour has been kept - allowing up to 4 lights

per model outdoors and 6 indoors)

* Muzzle flash looks better now

** Muzzle flash will now show up when firing the last bullet from the clip

* Coronas' don't have a Z test forced all the time now - as a result, sunglare now matches original PS2 version

* With User Tracks automatic scan enabled, MP3 playback will now work properly if QuickTime is not installed

* User Tracks now supports the FLAC codec (Only 8/16/24bits, Mono/Stereo and up to 48Khz)

the game will now show proper MSAA values from 2x up to 16x (depending on max MSAA level supported by the

graphics card)

same way

As SA doesn't load ASI files by default, you'll need an ASI loader.

For Rockstar Games Launcher version, you are better off using Ultimate ASI Loader,

as launcher forcibly overwrites modified game files even if automatic updates are disabled:

Rest of the installation is easy as pie. Just extract the archive contents to your SA directory

and that's all. Make sure you check the INI!

Alternatively, San Andreas Mod Loader can be used to install this plugin (by the time this mod was created, Mod Loader supports 1.0 ONLY):
