San Andreas Downgrader
Secondly, if your GTA San Andreas copy is a higher version than 1.0 you can easily downgrade it using the San Andreas Downgrader. Follow the video tutorial for more.
NOTE: Be aware that the additional mod options in the downgrader are completely optional and that some may affect your game negatively.
San Andreas Multiplayer
Thirdly, we need to download and install SA-MP 0.3.DL into our GTA San Andreas folder. The download link is available by clicking here.

Server Cache Files
Lastly, this is optional and a prep-up to everything, we can download and preload the server cache files into our game without waiting for the download in-game. These files are all the custom assets for the server.





SA-MP

We first have to open the SA-MP Client and add a name for our account, this will be our master account name. You can do this by filling in the "Name" box top-center of your screen.​

To connect to the server we must add the IP to the SA-MP server browser tab in Favorites. You can do this by navigating to the orange tick box (top left) and pasting in the server IP address. You can find the Game Server details by clicking here.

To start playing the server you must connect to it via the green play box (top left) or by right-clicking on the server and then clicking Connect.​

  2. In the second dialog box, we can create our first character by inserting a character name. Our character must have a first name followed by a last name and they should be split up using an underscore. (Example: John_Smith)
  3. In the next scene, we can see our character halfway created, we can now choose to spawn as them by clicking on the Spawn button.
