I have installed the game no prob. I played it for 2 hours. The next day it tells me it can't find or authenticate the very disk I had just played on! My computer exceeds all requirements and all the drivers on my computer and the firmware for the dvd player are all up to date. I also reinstalled it a few times to make sure.
Why does it work one day and no others?! wallbash_red.gif

Side note :  I used to work in an electronics dept. at Wal-Mart.  I hated it because they treat you like crap and when people asked me what a game was really like I told them.  I have told parents Vice City had prostitues and very strong adult themes and would probably be rated R if it was a movie.  The parents didn't care!  Usually they didn't even ask and when they did and I told them the truth and they would say something like "well he wants it" and bought it anyway.  Parents don't care.  Sad but too true.

My stat's are in the picture.  I tried some new stuff this weekend like Alchohol 120%.  No I didn't get drunk... Its a program to help you play games without the CD.  I also tried the crack... no I didn't buy drugs but I still feel wasted cuz that didn't work either.  The crack came from gamecopyworld becauce the one from another site is just a 3kb nothing.  I overwrote it into the gta_sa.exe as suggested.  I have found 7 other suggestions to fix this on this site and none work.  HELP    thanks  wallbash_red.gif

1) yeah, then they go complain about the game. wallbash_red.gif

2) Alcohol 120% basically makes a disc image and you can store it on your HD. Then you load it with onto a virtual drive and play from there. It didn't work either? Try asking the folks at their support forum. They'll help you with what security settings to choose if you don't know about them. Good people there, I use to be one of those that helped people make working images of their games.
