What is it?

San Andreas Mod Loader is an ASI Plugin for Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto San Andreas that adds an extremely user-friendly and easy way to install and uninstall your modifications, without even messing around anything in your game installation.

The usage is simple, you just have to create one or more folders inside modloader folder and drop the mod contents there. It is recommended to have one folder for each modification you have.

Highlights

[*]Just extract a mod content, you've just installed a mod.
[*]Just delete the mod folder, you've just uninstalled a mod.
[*]Do not replace ANY original file, never, really.
[*]Data files mixing. Therefore you can for example have 70 handling.cfg files at modloader and they'll work perfectly fine.
[*]It reads readme files in search for data lines for replacement.
[*]Reloadable models. Just click new game or load game, very useful for modders.

And more, take a look at the readme file ;)

Modloader will always get updated throught GTAGarage

So, basically we can put a folder inside the modloader folder, with supported files inside this folder, and ModLoader will load them instead of loading the original files. No need to replace original files anymore, or touch .img files.

See this for example:


The mods I've currently got loading through ModLoader, without replacing original files.
You may notice several versions of BSOR folders in there.

How can I load several versions of vegetation mods at once? You can't.

But you can set ModLoader to load the mods using the [PRIORITY] feature.



In the plugins folder, is a list of .txt and .dll's. In the .txt's you can find out which files are supported.

As an example, n the std-data.txt folder, you can see this text:

PS.
Using a timecycle-mod and it doesn't load ingame?

Go to GTA San Andreas/Modloader/.data/plugins and delete these;




Some people doesn't seem to understand this so I'll post a simpel tutorial;


[i]This folder



And this file


Goes into this (or where ever you installed your GTA)


Note that the "Modloader"-folder should have ".data" and the "Modloader" config file in it.

It really works great!

For those who are too scared to try this;

Step 1. Re-install your GTA so you have a fresh copy.
Step 2. Drop the Modloaderfolder and the Modloader.asi in your GTAfolder.
Step 3. Drop the mods you want in the Modloaderfolder.
Step 4. Start the game and enjoy!

Step 5. You get tired of a mod? Just delete it from the Modloaderfolder.
