July 11, 2005
Welcome to Spark. Spark is an Img archive editor for GTA San Andreas.
This version of Spark is a BETA version and may have bugs that may not in present in a fully functional release version. Please be aware of this fact and make sure that you have backups of all files you edit with Spark.
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1
If you get the error:
"The applcation failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135)." This means that you don't have the .NET Framework installed properly, and you need to download the following file.
Ways to get it:
[*] Windows Update (http://www.windowsupdate.com)
[*] Direct Download:
