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. Prepare clean, without another mods, copy of GTA San Andreas.
0. Extract all files from archive of mod in any folder.
1. With Alci's IMG Editor add ALL FILES from folder «1. gta3_img» with using command: «Action» > «Import (remove if exists)» in the IMG archive \models\gta3.img.
Then rebuild archive.
2. Same way add ALL FILES from folder «2. gta_int_img» in the IMG archive \models\gta_int.img. Make rebuild.
3. Install «3. summer.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).
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 has compatibility with HRT Pack 1.3 Enhanced Edition (https://moddb.com/mods/hrt-pack-13-enhanced-edition). Correct order of installation, in this case,
will be next: game > SA-MP > HRT Pack > Endless Summer: SA-MP Edition; after installation of mod open «Only for HRT Pack 1.3.exe» and install it.

* If you have problems with graphics, you can try disable ENBSeries library with ENBSelector menu or manually edit settings (for example, for disabling motion
blur effect, open enbseries.ini and near «EnableMotionBlur» set «0» instead of «1». By the way, you always can enable depth of field effect
(near «EnableDepthOfField» set «1»).
* If game displays a windows about the lack of DLL-files, see «Bonus» folder.
* If after minimizing sounds of nature continue to play, you have minimized the game not properly. Before minimizing press ESC.
* Included mod Project Oblivion 2010HQ has some problems with collisions; in the forest there is a small hole in a ground — result of combining SA-MP with PO2010.
* 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).
* For single-player use the main mod (download Full Edition or base mod with three updates): Moddb.com.
