Grand Theft Auto San Andreas

SA-MP is a modification, this means you need the actual game to play it.

If you do not have a legal copy of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, you have to buy it at your local store.

GTA Version

Because Rockstar has blocked modifications with their patches, only version 1.0 of the game will work.
If you got another version, please use [this downgrader] to downgrade it back to 1.0


If you purchased the game using Steam, SA-MP will not work.
This is because Steam installs an up to date game (version 2.0 or 3.0), and downgrading this copy is illegal!

Be sure to play SA-MP with a clean copy of the game.


Some cheats may also cause SA-MP to crash, besides that it's forbidden to cheat on multiplayer servers.
