Hi,

I recently purchased GTA: San Andreas from the Steam Summer Sale. Everything downloaded fine, however when I start to play the game I receive a "gta_sa.exe error" (specifically when I activate the very first mission)

My computer can definitely run this, so that is not an issue. I was thinking that perhaps it was a resolution issue. Seeing as GTA:SA doen't support 1920x1080, i need to guess which resolution would work best. FYI my OS is 64-bit.

I realize that this is isn't in the correct message board, but understand that the GTA:SA board is practically dead.

Thank you.

Many errors with Steam games can be resolved by verifying the integrity of the games files.

Yes, I've restarted and even re-downloaded the game.

Right click on a game in your steam list and click on "Properties", then click on the "Local Files" tab followed by clicking on the "Verify integrity of game cache" button.

*edit* - just noticed that you re-download the game, so my tip probably won't work, but it's worth a shot. You could also hit up the official Steam forum for the game.
