1. INSTALL

Before the installation you may make copy of game, because automatically uninstall is not implemented. It would be better if you disable before anti-virus and
firewall — they can corrupt the extraction of files.

0. Install SA-MP client over the CLEAN (without other mods) copy of GTA San Andreas. Extract all files from archive with Autumn Sunshine: SA-MP Edition in any folder.

1. Install «1. autumn.exe» in game directory.
(If installer gives the message about the incompatibility with Windows 7/8, extract exe-file and set in its properties compatibility with Windows XP).

2. With Alci's IMG Editor add ALL FILES from folder «2. gta3_img» with using command: «Action» > «Import (remove if exists)» in the IMG archive \models\gta3.img.
Then rebuild archive.

3. Same way add ALL FILES from folder «3. gta_int_img» in the IMG archive \models\gta_int.img. Make rebuild.

***

On Windows Vista, 7, 8 run game only in compatibility (with Windows XP) mode. If you have some problems with game on these operation systems,
see «Bonus\Compatibility with Windows Vista, 7, 8» folder.

If you have not very powerful PC and game works slow or spontaneously closes in places with new objects or textures, install the pack of low quality textures from «Bonus» folder.

Mod was tested on SA-MP 0.3x and SA-MP 0.3z.

***

For game without SA-MP it is better to use original version of Autumn Sunshine. It contains more interesting features like wild animals on the nature, hunting with friends hunters,
Halloween celebration: pumpkins near the houses, exhibition of vegetables, extended Hunter's House...

In the main mod a lot of gameplay features are waiting for you, new objects on the location, better graphics level and more other!

As SA-MP Edition, main mod was updated in 2014: mod now is better.

Girls. Be guided by image Girls.gif (\ReadMe\Autumn Sunshine SA-MP Edition) to select model you want playing. Digit bellow — ID of model.

(Usually, model selection is performed by entering to the special menu or typing command (for example: / skin ID, where ID — model number); on different servers SA-MP this is differently.)

Halloween costumes.

San Andreas state is preparing to celebrate Halloween, because in the game is autumn. And you can celebrate the holiday! In SA-MP you can play one of characters in Halloween costume,
and in single-player people in costumes will be among the other passers.

(In original mod costumes installed separately, as addition, after mod. But with help of unique realization in updated Autumn Sunshine: SA-MP Edition user can change costumes just by
pressing on the button in special menu).

For opening menu: open shortcut «Halloween costumes menu» in «Start» menu or from desktop, or open the file peds_menu.exe in the game folder.
In menu you can choose one of variants (peds in costumes or peds in usual clothes) and press the button for apply; before select another variant or start the game, wait about 10 seconds.

Be guided by image Costumes.gif (\ReadMe\Autumn Sunshine SA-MP Edition) to select model you want playing. Digit bellow — ID of model.

***

Making fire. You can make a fire. Press Shift + F for this. (If you do not want to use script — you can delete or move fires.cs from \CLEO).

***

Performance and graphics

On some computers can be performance problems. To solve them, try to find the optimal graphics settings through ENBSelector (enb_selector.exe in game folder).

ENBSelector menu is on the Russian language. Meaning of buttons: «Высокие» — High; «Средние» — Medium; «Низкие» — Low; «Очень низкие» — Very low;
«Отключить отображение травы» — Disable mapping of the grass, «Отключить ENBSeries» — Disable ENBSeries.

Also do not forget about options menu in the game: disable, for a start, anti-aliasing and vertical synchronization — it will give a nice speed boost.
Close other applications before the game and defragment your hard drive and do other operations necessary for correct work of operation system.

Finally, you can install low resolution textures pack from «Bonus» folder from archive with mod.

When (if in game menu was set low quality of graphics) you look at the fire and image gets darker, set low quality of graphics also in ENBSelector.

If you have problems with graphics, you can try disable ENBSeries library (use ENBSelector or open enbseries.ini and near «UseEffect» set «0» instead of «1»).
Also you can manually edit other settings (for example, for disabling motion blur effect near «EnableMotionBlur» set «0» instead of «1»).
Also was disabled depth of field effect (near «EnableDepthOfField» set «1») and some other ambiguous effects — try to experiment.

Other

* If game displays windows about the lack of DLL-files, see «Bonus» folder.

* If you can not run game or trees are white — mod is not installed correctly, try to reinstall mod; also try to reset settings (delete gta_sa.set from folder with saves).

* If after minimizing sounds of nature continue to play, you have minimized the game not properly. Before minimizing press ESC.

* CLEO 4 library has some sound issues: sometimes sounds disappear. Set basic acceleration of sound or disable it, in dxdiag utility (Start menu > Run > dxdiag).
On Windows Vista, 7, 8 try to disable processing of sound in system settings.

* Mod has compatibility with HRT Pack 1.3: Enhanced Edition. Order of installation in this case: clear game > SA-MP > HRT Pack 1.3 >

* For single-player use the main mod: Moddb.com. It has a lot of wonderful gameplay features and visual changes.
