Now with pictures and music!

If the spoilers open by themselves or you chose the wrong answer, and you can't make it go away; Click above it, that'll fix it.

Now, first things first. I'm assuming you made a backup of your "gta3.img" file, am I correct?

Now, are you using Windows 7 / Vista or Windows XP?
Good! Now, let's proceed.

First, let's open a folder. It can be any folder, in this case; Desktop.

After you type in "%Appdata%", you'll find the following:



After this, you'll come across folders of any Rockstar Studios games, go inside the "Grand Theft Auto San Andreas"
Copy and take your replacement gta3.img and replace the gta3.img inside the folder.
Now, let's go to our HDD (Hard Drive Disk) and then into Program Files.



And we're finished! Enjoy your vanilla game again!

NOTE: Do NOT delete your backup, I'm not going to be held responsible for any problems with this.

Windows XP also uses the same search system as Vista/7, please check out the Vista/7 tutorial!


Did you SERIOUSLY install modifications to SA and didn't make any BACKUPS?!
** Charcer sighs and facepalms.

Okay, don't worry. There's always a solution.
Download the original gta3.img file from HERE: megaupload.com LQ8KIMMS
The download will be long, so remember to make backups next time!

No, you see, GTA SA MADE the gta3.img file, thus it's not really illegal.
