Version with automatic installation: ReadMe
HRT Pack 1.3: Enhanced Edition
TABLE OF CONTENTS
3. Tips and tricks
HRT Pack — is a modification which improves game graphics by replacing old textures for better quality. Main textures of Las Venturas, Los Santos, San Fierro and some parts of the countryside have been reworked.
In addition to the replacement of textures, in some places there will be new objects. Now you can enter closed baseball stadium in Las Venturas; «Pirates in Men's Pants» casino turned into impromptu cafe; near the Wu Zi Mu's casino has appeared the park. Also, on the streets will now be more people, have been replaced trees and grass (using Project Oblivion 2007), made other improvements.
Further development mod ideas — HRT 1.4.
The new mod creates entirely from scratch in the new quality and will be released in 2016 [sorry].
Before the installation you may make copy of the game folder, automatically uninstall is not implemented. It would be better if you disable before installation anti-virus and firewall — they can corrupt the extraction of files. Prepare clean, without other mods, copy of GTA San Andreas.
Open Setup.exe. Select the game folder and install. During the installation do not close appearing windows.
On Windows Vista, 7, 8 run game only in compatibility (with Windows XP) mode.
If you want to combine mod with Endless Summer (except Endless Summer: Full Edition!), Spring Season (only self-install version), Winter Vacation 2.0 (only self-install version), Autumn Sunshine (only self-install version), the installation must be carried out in this order: clear game > one of the specified mods > HRT Pack 1.3 EE > special fix for compatibility with HRT Pack (you can find it in archive with one of the specified mods). Also read instructions of all of specified mods!
If you want to combine mod with Project Oblivion 2010 HQ, after installation HRT Pack 1.3 EE, you must install special fix from Bonus folder.
The modification is compatible with SA-MP, but ENBSeries need to reconfigure or delete (file d3d9.dll).
3. TIPS AND TRICKS
Basic information, details in ReadMe_RU.
* If game seems too bright, lower the brightness settings (Options > Display).
* If game is not running, you may delete gta_sa.set from My documents\GTA San Andreas User Files folder.
* At the construction site (or one of roads) in San Fierro the land is not touchable. This problem will be fixed in HRT 1.4.
Also, oddly enough, the problem disappears when after HRT Pack installed one of The Seasons mods.
* If game displays a windows about the lack of DLL-files, see Bonus folder.
