What is it?

San Andreas Mod Loader is an ASI Plugin for Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto San Andreas that adds an extremely user-friendly and easy way to install and uninstall your modifications, without even messing around anything in your game installation.

The usage is simple, you just have to create one or more folders inside modloader folder and drop the mod contents there. It is recommended to have one folder for each modification you have.

  • Just extract a mod content, you've just installed a mod.
  • Just delete the mod folder, you've just uninstalled a mod.
  • Do not replace ANY original file, never, really.
  • Data files mixing. Therefore you can for example have 70 handling.cfg files at modloader and they'll work perfectly fine.
  • It reads readme files in search for data lines for replacement.
  • Replace sound effects without bugs and artifacts!
  • Reloadable models. Just click new game or load game, very useful for modders.
  • And more, take a look at the readme file ;)

When I start gta sa v1.0 in Windows 8.1 it works smoothly, loads models and textures, fully compatible with SAMP and no in-game crashes... 10/10 to the creator But when I quit game using the menu (singleplayer) I get the "Gta_sa.exe stopped working" message. I know its a minor issue, but it's really annoying. Anyone know how can I solve this? Thanks!

To be able to effortlessly install/uninstall mods is indispensable. For me, if a mod has been made in such a way that it cannot be installed with this modloader, then that mod is useless to me. I've even got some mods that install via exe and I manually install the files to modloader so I don't have to go through an installer. Rock On!

Wonderful idea - Unfortunatelly, as mentioned in various places, the modloader is incompatible with various mods. Incompatible not in the sense that such mods cannot be managed by modloader, but instead that either modloader or the conflicting mod do not work at all. This appears to mainly apply to ASI plugins. One example is first person camera v3. The supplied hooks.asi seems to conflict with modloader, since hooks.asi will fail to load, if modloader.asi is active as well. This happens regardless of if hooks.asi is in the main GTASA dir, or in the modloader subdir. I'm fine with not being able to manage some mods via modloader, but certain mods not being usable at all, if modloader is running, sadly makes this promising tool useless to me.

tbhacims commented 8 months ago:
Can this load txd files ? Some feature like override current txd, col, dff files so we won't need to edit gta3.img file to replace billboard images and etc. This feature exist in MTA client side scripting, the function is called engineloadTXD engineloadCOL, engineloadDFF Does your plugin supports this or will be implemented ?
