HRT Pack 1.3: Enhanced Edition (with manual installation)

English manual. Only basic information, see ReadMe_RU [in archive with mod] for details.

3. Tips and tricks
4. Author


This is special version of HRT Pack 1.3: Enhanced Edition (mod, which replaces some textures of location (Las Venturas, Los Santos, San Fierro, some part of countryside), some interiors textures, peds, cars and weapons to most quality analogs) with manual installation; this version is recommended only for advanced users!

For other users is recommended HRT Pack 1.3: Enhanced Edition with auto installation.


This mod is a version with manual installation of HRT Pack 1.3: Enhanced Edition, was made in 2011 and based on HRT Pack 1.3 released in 2010; this mod doesn't show show current author's abilities.


About differences from auto installation version

Deleted: Project Oblivion, new grass, location changes (except location changes near the abandoned airport and house on Santa Maria beach), soda machines textures, HUD, all scripts, SA Stream Fix (it was replaced to memory512 by fastman92, which you can install from its folder).

All components of mod are packaged on different folders and you can install all them, some of them or one of them, in any order.


About the compatibility with other mods

Mod theoretically compatible with a huge amount mods.

Mod is not tested with The Seasons mods (unlike the original version with auto install), but theoretically they're compatible; if you want compatible mod with one of The Seasons mod (Spring Season, Endless Summer, Autumn Sunshine, Winter Vacation 2.0) with manual installation, install firstly HRT Pack 1.3, then this mod.

Not install this mod with one of The Seasons mods with auto installation.

If you want install mod with Project Oblivion, install for first this mod, then Project Oblivion; do the same with mods with full packed gta3.img file. Do not forget make rebuild of IMG archives! HRT Pack 1.3 EE with manual installation tested only with Project Oblivion 2010HQ.


Further development mod ideas — HRT 1.4. The new version creating entirely from scratch in the new quality. See for details:


Better, of course, install this mod over the clean game, but you can experiment as you like at your own risk.

After unpacking the mod you will see a series of folders, the contents of each can be placed in any order. Consider them.

"1. Fixed exe" folder - fixed gta_sa.exe with cracked limits and included No Begin Screen Patch by Alexander. Installation: copy file to the game folder.

"2. Effects" folder - effects (Project Reality beta 2.4 mod by dinuxx ( with new sky, water textures and some other things that were made special for HRT Pack). Installation: copy folder content to the game folder.

"3. Menu and loadscreens" folder; the name says it all. Installation: copy all folder content to the game folder.

"5. Location and peds settings" folder contains some changes on the location (see bellow) and edited peds settings (more different models on the streets etc).

"4. Cars textures" folder contains some enhanced basic cars textures (cracks on the windows etc).Installation: copy all folder content to the game folder.

"6. gta3_img" folder - the basis of all mod; this folder contains new textures for location and other things. Installation: open Alci's IMG Editor 1.5, open gta3.img file in GTA San Andreas\models; select Actions > Import (remove if exists), add all files from this foler and make rebuild (File > Rebuild).

"7. gta_int" folder contains the interiors textures. Installation: open Alci's IMG Editor 1.5, open gta_int.img file in GTA San Andreas\models; select Actions > Import (remove if exists), add all files from this foler and make rebuild (File > Rebuild).

See ENBSeries with settings in folder "ENBSeries from HRT Pack 1.3 EE" (installation: copy files from folder to the game folder); see "memory512 by fastman92 + CLEO 4" for script memory512, it is needed for correct displaying the textures (installation: copy file to the CLEO folder in game folder; but you must install CLEO 4 library for first).


Basic information, details in ReadMe_RU.

* If game seems too bright with ENBSeries, make the brightness settings lower (Options > Display).
* If game doesn't running, you may delete gta_sa.set from My documents\GTA San Andreas User Files folder.
* The modification is compatible with SA-MP, but you must install special version of ENBSeries ( or use mod without ENBSeries.
* If game displays a windows about the lack of DLL-files, see Bonus folder.
* Bug: at the construction site in San Fierro the land is not touchable. Forgot alpha textures for wires on the beach. Bug will be fixed in HRT 1.4.
