The GTA IV: San Andreas Mod Team.
It adds on to the existing map
It has come to our attention that the DLC downloads system was broken. This issue has been fixed. If you tried to install the mod and are now receiving an error that the MAIN add-on could not be found, please manually install the patch below.
The installer gives you an option to either let it do it for you or let you do it yourself IF you know what you are doing. You clearly disregarded the option and are clearly not a power user so why you chose to do it manually is beyond comprehension. You have to delete your GTAIV save games since the game will crash if you don't. That is not a problem that can be fixed.
tl;dr: We didn't ruin your computer, you did.
The demo of Grand Theft Auto 3 RAGE Classic is now available via the add-ons system. Enjoy! Please note this add-on is currently only available for the EFLC version.
Giving the mod a "1" review because you've either downloaded from an unofficial source or your anti-virus sucks? Wonderful. Do you really think we'd upload a virus? Furthermore, if our mod was infected, do you seriously think we'd be featured on ModDB and not have a influx of comments complaining about viruses? It just doesn't make any sense.
If your anti-virus says IVSA has a virus, you have a **** anti-virus. Uninstall it and install something better such as Microsoft Security Essentials. Windows.microsoft.com
We are proud to announce that a DEMO version of the Grand Theft Auto III RAGE Classic project, led by Garju67, will be released on August 8th exclusively through the EFLC version of GTA IV: San Andreas BETA 3 Add-ons system. This is only the beginning of things to come via our add-ons system!
We will add what we can with what tools, time, knowledge and man power we have. As we've stated numerous times, we do not have the proper tools to add all of the missions, character dialog and character customization. Most of the tools that are currently available very primitive and as such will not easily allow us to do those things on a grand scale.
Launch the game with the GTA IV: San Andreas launcher (IVSALauncher.exe). Also, please do not multi-post comments. If you have something to add, reply to your original comment.
You may just be ending up in games with GTAIV players. As soon as you join a server, ask if they are playing IVSA. If not, back out of the session ASAP. Currently, there's no way for us separate IVSA players from GTAIV players.
Disable your anti-virus or uninstall your current one and get a better one such as Microsoft Security Essentials. It's not deleting a virus, it's deleting critical game files.
No, it does not.
Try reinstalling your GTA game or download from another source.
EFLC is the best version as it has some extras the IV version doesn't have.
IV:SA³ Patch #1 released
The first patch is now live, featuring the text files and other updates/fixes. To update, go to the add-ons tab in the launcher and update your GTA IV: San Andreas.
Hey Dave, we have released an update that may fix your issue. In the launcher, go to the add-ons tab and update your GTA IV: San Andreas.
You need to let the installer move your save games like it asks you. Should be in "C:\Users\[YOURUSERNAME]\AppData\Local\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\savegames"
Do you have some kind of instant messenger such as MSN, Skype or GTalk?
Would you be willing to allow us to remote connect to your computer to verify a couple of things?
Did you select the "Copy my existing GTA folder and prepare the copy." option at setup?
Did you have the installer copy your game files?
Most likely a false positive if you got it via an official source. We scan everything we upload. Get a better anti-virus such as Microsoft Security Essentials. Windows.microsoft.com
To clarify, are you launching via the "IVSALauncher.exe"? Which game do you have it installed on, IV or EFLC? Did you have Beta 2 installed?
Where did you get the installer from? Your download is probably damaged. Try redownloading it and validate its integrity using the hashes on the download page:
There are a number of download mirrors on our website, such as (http://multiupload.biz/evjlo4snf4md/IVSA3Setup.rar.html). ModDB still has to approve the mod on here. You'll need WinRAR to open the download (http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm).
No. At the moment this is next to impossible. We may bring certain missions over as time permits.

As a token of our appreciation, the launch trailer for Beta 3 will be released a day early (tomorrow) exclusively on ModDB! Thanks guys!
