try using fraps to record ingame footage (you will need to edit the video later to compress into MPEG4 because fraps records in uncompressed format and so it uses a lot of hard drive space for just a few minutes (depending on the resolution of the game it will use more or less hard drive space, for example in full HD 1920x1080 3 minutes will use 4GB, but in 1024x768 you may be able to record up to 15 minutes in a 4GB file, or maybe more) a good resolution for HD videos is 1280x720

WOW !! this looks great !!!, just what i wanted to achieve but i'm still too noob in unity to complete and too busy too, i have like 50% of what you got here (1 scenery, 1 animated player, some dinosaurs, still no weapons and lot less content) (altough i had a more completed game, in another older engine and with more types of enemies: dinos, animals, aliens, soldiers, zombies, monsters and lot of weapons and maps), i thought my unity scenery was realistic but yours is much much better, keep up the good work. you are the best.

delete california megamod 3.3 folder, reinstall all 7 parts, do not make changes, and if still got problems then switch HUD to GTA IV one (or original san andreas HUD).
if everything fails then try disabling some .asi mods from main california megamod 3.3 folder (move .asi files to DISABLED folder ) the ones you can disable are LimitAdjuster.asi (more probably the cause of your troubles), flickr.asi, HDResolutions.asi, V_HUD_by_DK22Pac.asi, GTA_IV_HUD.asi (do not disable modloader.asi cleo.asi cause then the game will not work, and dont disable streamMemoryFix10.asi because the game will look like ****) another possible cause of troubles could be that you graphic card does not support ENB series and so you need to remove all d3d9.dll to disable it. can also try disabling (removing) some cleo scripts from CLEO folder and see which ones let the game work for you and which ones not.

para jugar con esa grafica tan antigua y aligerar peso al juego usa la herramienta custom.hta para iniciar el juego con la configuracion que desees, por ejemplo, el gta san andreas con las texturas originales + vehiculos, peatones y armas del megamod

when you install part1 you just need to select a hard drive letter, when installing parts 2 to 7 you need to select the California Megamod 3.3 folder that was created by part 1 installer.
use HELP.HTA to start the game, set HUD to GTA IV
INSTALATION INSTRUCTIONS IN ENGLISH:
Mods-gta.blogspot.com.es
YOUTUBE CHANEL WITH INSTALATION VIDEOTUTORIALS (IN PLAYLISTS):
Youtube.com
Try installing microsoft visual C++ 2005 redistributable runtimes.
also 2008 version, and directX 9.0c and directPlay.
if you want me to help more then you need to give more details about your system: which windows do you have (XP/vista/7/8/8.1/10), what system: 32 or 64 bits, how much RAM you have installed (recommended from 8 to 12 GB minimum but if you know how to disable useless windows services and limit programs that run on startup to free some ram then you may be able to play with just 4 GB RAM) and how much RAM you have FREE (windows taskmanager, performance tab), how much free space in HARD drive C: (you need at least 4 GB free for windows to work without problems). for noobs i recommend to restart windows before each play sesion in california megamod (to free as much ram as possible but it will not work if you have low ram and have a lot of useless programs eating all your ram right from the start of windows, you need to be smart at administrating your resources)

solo uno de los mods tiene un mod de vegetacion que hace mas lento el juego debido a haber aumentado la densidad de hierba (creo que es el mod de iron man si mal no recuerdo), pero en todos los demas mods la densidad es la normal y por tanto el juego va bien rapido. Asegurate de haber activado el mip mapping (importantisimo) y no tener activado antialiasing (que reduce muchisimo los FPS) y tener desactivado el limitador de fotogramas por segundo para que el juego te vaya bien rapido. para que lo veas mas claro Fijate en la seccion de imagenes hay una foto que muestra la configuracion grafica recomendada para el maximo rendimiento. Tambien acabo de subir una serie de videotutoriales sobre el megamod a youtube Youtube.com

i guess you was trying to install the megamod in C:\Program Files\ that's why it didnt work, because gta san andreas is a 32 bits application and should go inside the 32 bits apps folder in 64 bits windows that is C:\Program Files (x86)\

remember that you must use California Megamod.hta (or California Megamod.exe) to Play any mod or else game will not work (will crash while loading).
some antivirus may interfere with the game because some mods will be writing log files and stuff, you should use an admin account with permissions to avoid problems, and to change HUD and switch from window mode to fullscreen you may need to pause your antivirus if it does not allow to make changes inside california megamod folder.

starmanfp @ California Megamod 3.3 Files & Folders List

These are all files and folders that you will find inside California Megamod 3.3 folder when you finished a good installation of california megamod 3.3 (without errors) if anything is missing the you did something wrong and game will not work (unless you just deleted some .jpg pictures and .log files not needed).

make sure you install in an account with admin privileges to avoid problems because the game will need read and write permissions to access files inside the california megamod 3.3 folder or else it will crash or it will not work in the right way.
and remember that you must use California Megamod.hta or California Megamod.exe to Play any mod or else game will not work.

you may need to click the HD button and then rigth click and select SAVE IMAGE AS.. to download the file and see it at full size.

switch the HUD to GTA IV HUD and make sure you are using the reccommended graphic settings for maximum performance (mip mapping should be enabled) ALWAYS before running the game, right click in your desktop and open task manager, check in performance tab how much FREE ram you have (and i mean FREE, not available, gta san andreas will not use available memory, only FREE memory, if you have low free memory game will crash eventhough it works perfect), if you have less than 2 GB free then the game will crash, how to avoid this problem? restart or shut down your computer to free all your ram, now wait 1 minute and start your PC again, and make sure windows have truly finished loading before starting the game (wait untill the hard drive led stops blinking), (it will also help closing some apps that starts since windows starts and that you are not going to use while playing the game). there is a .vbs file in california megamod folder that you can double click when you are short of free ram to force windows to free some ram, although it will only free up to 2 GB maximum, and could give error mesagge in some pcs with less than 8GB of ram installed). if you checked the free ram and you have more than 2GB and you still have crashes then try to pause your antivirus, and set the game to use the GTA IV HUD instead of the GTA V Hud. if nothing works, first i would reccomend you to install again all 7 parts of the megamod and make sure there are no files or folders outside the california megamod 3.3 folder, everything should go INSIDE the california megamod folder.

author name is black stallion, and modeeper did a reskin, you can find it in gtainside, you should also look for DOA girls in gta inside (i mean girls from the game dead or alive extreme) because they are very good i replaced all strippers with them (honoka, kokoro, lisa, kasumi), here is the link for the girl in your picture:

1- pause or disable your antivirus
2- double click window_or_fullscreen.hta
3- set full screen mode
4- there should be a confirmation message
5- now you can enable again antivirus
6- start the game and now it should run in full screen mode
7- in advanced graphics options enable MIP MAPPING and disable FRAME LIMITER and ANTIALIASING

starmanfp @ BEST PERFORMANCE SETTINGS

Ajustes ideales para conseguir el maximo rendimiento en gta san andreas y de paso evitar malfuncionamiento del juego en algunas ocasiones, por ejemplo evitar que el juego se cierre al salir de casa de cj despues de cargar una partida. Evitar crashes frecuentes, o que no carguen algunos modelos o texturas en algunas ocasiones, etc. puede que en ordenadores lentos deban reducir la resolucion que la he puesto al maximo, pero si deben respetar los demas ajustes especialmente activar MIP MAPPING que les dara un aumento tremendo en rendimiento permitiendo un mayor disfrute del juego a mayores resoluciones y desactivar antialiasing pues incluso al minimo va a restarle un monton de FPS al juego.

i did not include any multiplayer mod in california megamod yet, so curently california megamod has no multiplayer support, sorry, it is possible (not tested but in theory, if i'm wrong then it may stop working so its better to make backup of the files in the main folder first if you want to try it) to install sa-mp into california megamod but anyway the game will appear without mods when you play samp. and i suspect its not what you want.

what file are you using to play the mods? did you notice the installer created a shortcut in your desktop? this is the one you should be using to play all mods (and also configure some things), it shows images of all mods and you just have to click on the image of the mod you want to play. it also allows you to read info about any mod (with ? icon). if after the game loads you can not reach the options menu (where you start a new game) because it crashes before, then you dont have the audio folder installed or there are missing files in audio folder. download and install parts 6 and 7 to fix it (click diskette icons).

yes, to remove the white cj and get back to the black one just remove the file player.img from the folder Modloader/BASE/Models and to remove the others enter inside Modloader/PEDS/peds and remove the files: ryder.dff ryder.txd ryder2.dff ryder2.txd ryder3.dff ryder3.txd smoke.dff smoke.txd smokev.dff smokev.txd sweet.dff sweet.txd kendl.dff kendl.txd and to get the original cesar removing leon kenedy remove also cesar.dff and cesar.txd

He instalado windows 8.1 en una maquina virtual con virtualbox y le he instalado el california megamod 3.1, funciona perfectamente, como explicaba en la pagina web que te habia pasado antes, windows te dice que el juego requiere DIRECTPLAY y dice que si lo deseas instalar, le dices que si y lo instala, y luego como el d3dx9_40.dll ya viene en la carpeta del megamod 3.1 pues no hay que hacer nada mas, solo reiniciar el pc y probar el juego y funciona. Prueba a eliminar los archivos gta_sa.set config.set y replay.rep de la carpeta donde se guardan las partidas grabadas que por defecto esta ubicada en C:\Users\ADMIN\Documents\GTA San Andreas User Files (reemplaza ADMIN por el nombre de tu cuenta de windows). si eso no soluciona el problema entonces es probable que tu grafica no soporte ENB series, si fuese eso se podria solucionar desinstalandolo, crea una carpeta con el nombre DISABLED dentro del california megamod (o en cualquier otro sitio) y (con cortar y pegar en vez de con copiar y pegar) mueve todos estos archivos a esa carpeta:
d3d9.dll
enbseries.ini
enbeffect.fx
effect.txt
enbpalette.bmp
colormod.ini
GFXHack.asi
MotionBlur.asi
MotionBlur.ini
shadows.ini
si lo hiciste bien habran desaparecido de la carpeta del megamod y ya no estaran funcionando, ahora inicia californiaMegamod.exe. escoge STARMAN MOD. e unicia una nueva partida a ver si te funciona el juego (no cargues una partida grabada para descartar posibles incompatibilidades). tambien puedes probar a quitar HDDisplayResolutions.asi sa_log.asi y flickr.asi pero solo si no funcionase lo anterior

use more quality for the sound encoding to avoid the out of sync problem, maybe 44 khz 128 kbps stereo if you are using mp3 audio, or better use Dolby AC3 44 khz 96 kbps stereo audio + MPEG4 H264 video (the video bitrate depends on the resolution you are using, you may need at least 2000 kbps video bitrate for a decent quality , at least if you are using no HD resolutions) good luck

you will have no problem, it will not ask you for a missing part, but you will need to manually install the AUDIO folder by yourself (copy paste) because the game needs the audio folder or else it will not run.

primero que nada fijate bien a ver si tienes una carpeta AUDIO dentro del megamod, sino pues ahi tienes el problema, descarga e instala la carpeta AUDIO del megamod version 3.1 o 3.2 o copia y pega la carpeta AUDIO de un san andreas original (con instalacion completa porque sino no te copia todo los audios necesarios al disco duro). Si eso no es el problema entonces asegurate de tener instalados los drivers que requiere tu tarjeta grafica, ya sea NVIDIA o ATI/AMD (las intel no sirven para juegos, solo puedes jugar juegos antiguos pero haz la prueba a actualizar los drivers) si eso tampoco soluciona el problema entonces fijate bien lo que dice el mensaje de error y tal vez puedas solucionarlo, GTA San Andreas con ENB series en Windows 8, 8.1, y 10 requieren unas DLL extras del Directx 9 (porque vienen con directx 10 o 11 y no trae instalado el 9 si se pudiera instalar se solucionaria pero bastaria con copiar a la carpeta del megamod las DLL que te pide el juego) alguna DLL puede que no la traiga el megamod pero se puede encontrar y descargar gracias a google si sabes cual es el nombre exacto del archivo que te esta pidiendo, y suele decirlo el mensaje de error. Hace tiempo hice la prueba de correr el megamod en windows 8 y 10 y me pedia d3dx9_40.dll asi que lo inclui dentro de la version 3.1 del megamod, puede ser que necesites otro mas, con otro numero distinto del 40, como 29 o 33, yo uso windows 7 y no me pide dll extras, fijate en esta pagina a ver si te ayuda Mods-gta.blogspot.com.es

All installation files of california megamod 3.2 beta are independent files, they are not .partX.rar they are .EXE and so each one is a full independet installer, and this means that each file must be installed one after another and in the right order (audio part can be installed at the end), the download of the audio file can be skipped but you will need to manually copy and paste the audio folder from version 2.0 or 3.0 or 3.1 or even the original san andreas audio folder from the game without mods (or even the audio from the ripped version can be used, ripped means that some audio files have been muted to make a very small download and so you will not be able to hear some conversations or music, otherwise you will hear everything if you use the audio from the original game or from the california megamod 3.x instead)

intenta iniciar el juego usando californiaMegamod.hta. me gustaria ayudarte mas pero necesito mas informacion. Cual version de windows tienes? XP, 7, 8, 8.1, 10? es de 32 o 64 bits? cuanta ram tienes? cual tarjeta grafica tienes? cual es la ruta donde instalaste el california megamod? has modificado el megamod con algo? por ejemplo has aƱadido o reemplazado algun .DLL o .ASI ? este mes espero subir una nueva version pero no se decirte que dia, si por mi fuera lo subia hoy mismo, pero no es cuando yo quiero, sino cuando esta suficientemente adecentado, sin errores importantes y sin cosas importantes a medio hacer, las prisas no son buenas, lo se por experiencia. Aunque ya he hecho muchos cambios desde entonces, por si te interesa, en octubre subi una version beta 2 del california megamod 3.2 en este sitio Diskokosmiko.mx

or wait some days untill i get the final 3.2 version ready to upload. i wanted to upload it long ago but the new high specs config for ENB series has been causing a lot of delays because it is hard to find a good configuration, default settings didnt work at all for me, the game looked like it was dopped on a bad LSD voyage, so i have been trying to set all parameters manually by trial and error, and i still didnt get a good settings and anyway it will be too slow for my PC, so i won't be able to use it, it is something for other people with high powered graphic cards, so i'm starting to think in removing it and uploading the megamod with the old low specs ENB configuration only. and maybe in a future date when i have finished the new enb settings i could upload it as an optional update for version 3.2

i would recomend you to download 3.2 beta instead, the files are smaller : 641MB Part 1 (main game files and folders including Cleo folder) + 1GB Part 3 (the Base mod + gamemodes) + 943MB Part 4 (all themed mods) + 1GB Part 5 (alien city and grand carma total conversions) + 3GB Part 2 (audio folder only, but you can skip this file and use audio folder from version 2.0 instead, if you want) download links for california megamod 3.2 beta 2 uploaded in october: Diskokosmiko.mx

some web applications (.hta) included in california megamod 3.2: One will show info about any mod, another will launch the game with the selected mod, one will let you mix mods. One will let you select window mode instead of full screen. one will let you change the language of the cheats menu (those menus available in the game by pressing F5, F6, F7, F8). Another one will let you select if you want to play california megamod or gta san andreas without mods.
