[Guide] Running GTA:SA on 144hz

Running GTA:SA on 144hz

Many players play on a 144hz monitor but unfortunately when you launch GTA:SA, the game sets your monitor to 60hz by default even if your monitor setting is set at 144hz. This tutorial will cover how to play GTA:SA on 144hz, so you can enjoy the benefits of it.

Benefits of playing on a 144hz screen as far as I know is that you will have a faster response time.

Before following the guide make sure your monitor is running on 144hz. This guide will also work for players who intend to play on their monitors with more than 60hz. Just replace 144hz with your desired frequency as you follow this guide.

There are two ways we can run GTA:SA on 144hz which are:
  • 1. Modifying enblocal.
    • You need ENB for this.
    2. Playing on windowed mode.
The main difference between the two are that number one lets you play on full screen while number two doesn't let you.

1. Modifying enblocal:
  • 1. Access your GTA:SA directory and locate your enblocal file.
    2. Add this to enblocal and make sure to save enblocal afterwards:
    Spoiler: show
    [ENGINE]
    ForceDisplayRefreshRate=1
    DisplayRefreshRateHZ=144
    You can also change the refresh rate of your choice by changing the integer of DisplayRefreshRateHZ but ensure that your monitor supports it in case of jeopardy.
2. Playing on windowed mode:
  • It's simple, just press these keys together: ALT SHIFT ENTER and you're on windowed mode.

    You'll have to remain playing on windowed mode if you want to play on 144hz. If you go back to full screen mode, you won't be playing on 144hz as the game will set your monitor frequency to 60hz.

10/10. 144hz is obligatory.

Or you can just start the game, (I don't use enb) and the game will start in 60hz.
You feel this instantly, then you alt+tab. Then get back ingame. 144hz :)



EDIT: THIS IS NOT WINDOWED, THIS IS 144hz FULLSCREEN.

Modifying the ENBlocal & adding that did nothing. Still stuck on 60hz.

Could anyone here give me their enb file that has no settings other than just the forced refresh rate, thanks.
