MODDERS: This patch has the same restrictions as the first SA Patch: The game will only run if the original install CD is found, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will now force the use of the cd for every install for this reason mods modified after the first SA Patch installation will not work.
The SA Patch has been modified to require the original GTA SA CD in order to run. Unlike the first SA Patch, the game will no longer work without a CD. This means any save files after the install are rendered useless.
Any modders who have used the first SA Patch, or any SA Patch, and wish to successfully use this patch should Simply follow the instructions & be ready to lose save files that would be overwritten by the new SA Patch. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will now force the use of the CD on install. In the rare event that the CD is not available or a save file can not be restored using any manual techniques, the game will force the use of the CD on re-install. For this reason, it is strongly recommended that you encrypt your save files. 7211a4ac4a
