Frequently Asked Questions and Errors
We have listed a number of frequently occurring errors and problems which you might experience when installing San Andreas: Multiplayer. If your question is not listed here, we welcome you to ask about it on our forum.

How do I downgrade to San Andreas Version 1?
SA-MP requires you to use Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Version 1 because of some changes Rockstar Games made in the second version of the game. You can download an easy patch that will downgrade GTA San Andreas to Version 1.

Why does Las Venturas Playground tell me my SA-MP version is outdated?
Unless you are using SAMPCAC to connect to LVP, we strongly recommend all players to update to SA-MP 0.3.7-R4 as it's the latest supported version by the SA-MP team.
Download the latest version here

Inclusion of SAMPCAC
The Las Venturas Playground now supports SAMPCAC and the installation is very simple.
Downgrade to 0.3.7-R1, run SAMPCAC, select all three components, and complete the installation.
For any questions or issues, you may have, please contact a Staff Member.

When I try to start the game I get an internal error..
Internal errors mostly are caused by modifications. Be sure that you don't have installed any mods, different vehicles, patches or cheats prior to launching the game, as these will be identified as cheats by San Andreas: Multiplayer. Try to open the directory in which you installed the game and search for a file called "d3d9.dll". If it exists, delete it. If the problem still persists after that, re-install both Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas as SA-MP.

Why does SA-MP say CONNECTION REJECTED: Unacceptable NickName when joining?
The characters you can use in your nickname are limited to a certain collection. Next to the alphabet and numbers, you can use: [], (), $, @, ., _ and =. Suitable nickname examples include, but are not limited to: Nickname, [CLAN]Nickname, Nick_Name and so on.
