Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Reborn
By Qualcom and 2 collaborators
Here we are over 10 years later, and Rockstar still hasn't given Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas the update it deserves. In this guide we have fixed many bugs from the PC game, and also added some mods to restore things from console versions of the game, without any sacrifices.
GTA San Andreas, much like GTA III and Vice City, has a fairly dated PC port. Rockstar Games seems to not care much for their older games on the Steam and the PC platform, sadly. These GTA Reborn mods aim to correct many issues and modernize these ports smoothly.

By installing this patch you are breaking the Rockstar end user license agreement and when contacting their support, they may refuse due to the EULA violation. In accordance with the GNU GPL license(s), as the author of this guide, I have a right to non-commercial distribution and change, provided any changes to the original source are provided. I, in good faith believe that GTA Reborn follows these terms. I am not the author of the following modifications, and therefore any error/crash/bugs should be directed to the developers themselves.

Published here is a complete list of the included software and their authors.

Um it was working fine until I extracted the patch and now it just closes upon loading. I have used your other Reborn patches but this is rather quite infuriating and just downright disappointing if you ask me. Hopefully this will get fixed soon or I can extract a previous version of this. Just absurd.

umm ok this patch worked fine for me but then suddenly it stopped working, when i quit the game and tried to start it again, it wont start and no error messages are popping up. i looked through the patch files and it seems that I noticed the patched vorbisFile.dll is causing the issue. when i try to run all of the things in the patch apart from the patched vorbisFile.dll and instead use the normal one it runs fine but just without the HD reseloution and xbox360 controller support on the game. this is really strange as it worked fine and now suddenly its not working for me now. anybody else had this issue..?
