ABOUT SAMI:



San Andreas Mod Installer (SAMI) allows you to install mods and custom vehicles made for GTA San Andreas

without having to edit the game files yourself. SAMI practically does all of the work for you, which makes mod

installing (and uninstalling) as easy as a few clicks.



=============================================================



CHANGE LOG:



Version 1.1:

-Fixed bug with cars that have larger than normal wheels

-Fixed several bugs when replacing vehicles that don't use a carcols.dat line (i.e. "hydra")

-Will now remember the last used mod source pathfile (rather than defaulting to the desktop every time)

-Automatically highlights the replacement vehicle that the custom car was intended to replace

-Fixed minor problem with update prompt asking more than once when SAMI is ran for the first time

-Fixed minor InsertText scripter problem with wrong "Insert Position" selection when modifying the command

-Fixed a couple minor problems when manually changing San Andreas directory

-Scripts can now be more than one "level" deep in a ZIPRAR file's structure

-Several minor changes to the design

-New version of installer used to install SAMI (should fix errors that some people were having)

-Several other minor changes



=============================================================

Automatic Vehicle Detection and Installation:

-Detects all handling.cfg, carcols.dat, and vehicles.ide lines included with the vehicle

-If multiple handlingcoloride lines are found, user is asked which one to use

-User can modify handlingcoloride lines if desired. Lines are checked for errors before accepted.

-If vehicle doesn't have included handling, color, or ide lines then the original "factory default" line will be used.

-Existing vehicle is backed up before it's replaced with the new one (to allow uninstalls)

-All files and information will be backed up before the mod is installed (to allow uninstalls)

-All actions are performed according to the information in the script (no input is required from the user)

-Actions in a script are performed in the order they are positioned in the script file

-Mod information is displayed before the mod is installed (mod name, email, website, description, etc)

-Ability to include multiple scripts with a single mod. Useful if there's multiple options for installing the mod.

This file was archived on Nexus Mods in an effort to save the files that were lost when Game Front shut down in April 2016. As of March 2018, Game Front has now returned with the original staff, including most of the files it originally hosted. With the blessing of the Game Front staff and to ensure a viable backup of these files remains, we'll continue to host these files on Nexus Mods with a link back to the original file on Game Front.
