hi. I just got my san andreas today and i installed it properly and everything. When i double click the icon to run it it shows a cd icon and a little box comes up and says "cannot find 800x600x32 video mode. Has any1 else had this.

My system specs:

Intel(R)Celeron 1000MHz (1GHz)
Microsoft XP Home edition with service pack 2
256MB RAM
DirectX 9.0c
Intel(R) 82815 graphics controller (32MB)

My PC meets the requirements apart from the graphics card but people have been playing this game with a 32MB graphics card.

Thanks in advance for your help

Did you get the game from a friend or download it from the Internet?
Or did you buy the game?

Dude!!

try a newer PC version, and not a copy,,

also Win 8 is still being babysitted,, so don't expect miralces for about another year

play with it on Win7 or look in ebay,, I have two PS2s on sale,,

else, wait for an :"upgraded" version of GTA San Andreas for Win 8

have fun!!

Live fast, die hard!!
