GTA SA – How to Downgrade Steam Version [Tutorial] – Feat. SpooferJahk

In this tutorial I will show you how to downgrade GTA San Andreas Steam version to the 1.0 release and make some improvements to it, step by step.
These simple instructions will help you to bring all the music back and make you decide what mods you should install (in the tool) to make your version better than anytime before. This will also allow you to install SAMP/MTA.
You can also downgrade your 2.0 version and make the same changes to it.

    Here is Q&A
    -Why do we need to rename the root folder?
    -In this case, Steam won't update our "downgraded" version and screw everything up. In other words, we are making a non-steam version, which will be protected from updates.

    -Can I downgrade a pirate version?
    -What is the point? This tool is made for Steam and Retail 2.0 version. If you are interested in the mods, then download them separately.

    -Why Steam is updating my San Andreas copy?
    -I guess, you didn't rename the root folder or you tried to launch the game on Steam. Remember, you must launch the game from that folder by clicking on "exe". Don't touch Steam at all.

    -Can I launch my downgraded game through Steam?
    -Nope, since you renamed the folder. If you really want that, then use an option to launch a non-steam game.

    -There are two executables now, which one is the right one?
    -I would recommend to launch the game through "gta_sa", but they are both identical.

    -What's with the famous "Hot Coffee" content?
    -Some people were afraid if HT is now enabled and the answer is no. If you want to enable it, then use an unlocker or a mod, or save editor. If you want to enable it, then google it.

    -The tool crashes.
    -Try to use the full version or vise versa. If it didn't help, then write about your crash in the "downgrader" thread. There is no need to write me a letter. I don't know.

    -I have blue skies & missing textures with Samp & SkyGFX (might be other graphical problem)
    -Try this 3:45 or

    -My Polish translation doesn't work (might be more languages):

    So I just got a new pc and had successfully done this twice on my old computer, but after trying on my new one it simply doesn't work, I open the downgraded version of the game but it's as if the downgrader didn't do anything! Does this method not work anymore or am I doing something wrong?
