GTA SAMP doesn't work for me. [Part 2]

Post by vaininsanity » Fri May 18, 2018 9:47 am

So, I replaced my GTA_SA.exe with a new one that I downloaded because my steam version doesn't detect the samp, whenever I launch it just crashes, I don't know what to do, I tried running it as admin the GTA_SA won't run at all.

The steam version of my GTA_SA.exe runs fine, but the downloaded one doesn't work yet SAMP detects it.

Help?

So now you have two GTAs? One that you downloaded from steam and the other from somewhere else? Which one are you trying to make work?

@Demonator

SAMP doesn't detect the GTA_SA.exe one on Steam, but the downloaded one works, however it crashes because the cracked GTA_SA.exe doesn't launch.

You could've redownloaded the steam version instead of placing a possibly corrupt GTA_SA.exe in there. Please try that as it is a definite solution, but delete everything GTA related before doing it.

SAMP doesn't detect the steam version of GTA_SA.exe though, so I had to download the cracked one but the cracked one doesn't launch.

Okay, the steam version works now since I changed the name from gta-sa.exe to gta_sa.exe, I tried launching it, still does not work.

Check the replies #7 and #8

Make sure only the steam GTA exists on your computer and not the cracked one, also uninstall SAMP before those steps and then reinstall it after.

What happens when you try to launch SAMP?

It doesn't launch, it doesn't do anything at all, the game doesn't load, however when I try to launch gta_sa.exe it launches.

Take a screenshot of your GTA folder.
