SteamL GTA San Andreas Help!

#1ragingzeppy68Posted 2/9/2014 3:20:00 AM
Been combing the interwebs for help and couldnt find any. Here's whats going on.

Bought GTA:SA via Steam and when I try to run it, it pops up, "Cannot find 800x600x32 video mode"

I see people have been having this problem and no real solution.

I am running on Windows 8.1 and a 42 inch tv.

I tried it on Win 8 and same thing.

Any help would be much appreciated!

You either need to make that video resolution in your graphics card drivers, so the game will boot - and then you can change the resolution in game.

Or you need to find the config file for the game, and make it start in a different resolution.

The second response will lead you to a mod that's used for setting custom resolutions that the game otherwise doesn't use.

Which is why I said to "read'. That information is all there if you "read" it.
