No More Hot Anyways, this patch also fixes a few bugs: ADDITIONS - Added support for 720p and 1080i HDTV resolutions (may also do 1080p, not sure). BUGS FIXED *Issue fixed on machines where the OS has been updated (one OS installed over top of another) and has 2 registry keys that point to the users "My Documents" folder (we incorrectly used to assume the Win2000 folder, now correctly uses the last installed OS folder) - users know this as "user account period bug".
*Crash when entering advanced display options with only 32 meg of video ram (32 meg of video ram is not supported and will only allow use of 640*480 in 16 and 32 bit.
At this resolution it is likely you will see the "Black Roads" LOD problem).
We do NOT however disallow machines with 32 meg of video ram from running GRAND THEFT AUTO: San Andreas.
However now it has been confirmed that GTA San Andreas has had it's rating completely removed.
Come back soon as new guides and SA goodies will be added all the time."Additional products expected for fiscal 2006 include the newly announced Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories for Play Station 2, tentatively planned for release in the second quarter, Bully for Play Station 2 and Xbox, two new titles for the PSP handheld system, including an all-new Grand Theft Auto, a title based on a new brand for the Xbox 360 and a sequel of a Rockstar brand, all from Rockstar Games; The Da Vinci Code, Prey, and 24: The Game from 2K Games; various other sports titles including NBA 2K7 from 2K Sports; and Family Feud for multiple platforms from Global Star." -Take Two Press Conference Forum Discussion Finally, the downloads page for the GTA San Andreas section is up and running!!This new version of the game promises to come "clean" and not contain any hidden sexual scenes, however it still remains to be seen whether retailers will welcome this news.The hot coffee mod produced such a whirlwind of controvesy, many retailers may continue to keep it off their shelves.However, it is my personal belief that the new version will be back on shelves as soon as possible.Many stores will not want to miss out on the many sales this game will bring.This version will retain the original ESRB M-rating and is expected to be available during the Company's fourth fiscal quarter." The most interesting thing is, however, the impact this will have on the developer for further support of modding (and modding is one of the major attraction points of the PC version of the game).Earlier on, before the release of the game, Rockstar Games' representatives said that they wanted to give much more freedom and support for the modding community. Stay tuned for further information regarding this case. The simple fact is, violent people will always do violent things, and just because they replicate something they've seen in a game or film, doesnt stop the fact that they would probably have done something equally stupid at another time. The parents who are naive enough to buy these games for their children. Check out this article that had me giggling at it's absurdness.Violent video games under attack"ESRB assigns "Adults Only 18 " (AO) rating for current version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas due to unauthorized third party "Hot Coffee" modification Rockstar Games to cease manufacture of current version of title and offer a downloadable patch to prevent modification of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for PC Company lowers third quarter and fiscal year guidance to reflect the expected negative impact on the title's retail performance" These headlines appeared earlier today on the official website of Take Two Interactive, preceding an article which ended several weeks of scandal surrounding the so-called "Hot Coffee" mod, which let the player "unlock" content that was judged by the ESRB as "graphic depictions of sex".The mod was named "unauthorized software that alters the content of the original retail version of the title, representing a violation of Take-Two and Rockstar's end user license agreement (EULA) and intellectual property rights".Hence the result: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is now an "Adults Only" title; this fact severely damages the game's reputation and puts it on a shelf with adult games, where, according to most of the fan community, it does not belong.
