Hello, my friend uses a vista computer and is having some strange problems. Ever since she installed SA:MP, her GTA save files were erased, her textures were reset, and her user tracks have become uneditable, as have the textures. We have tried many things in FAQs and vista FAQs but nothing seems to solve the problem. I use a windows XP, and while I didn't have any save files to be deleted and my textures have not reset, I am unable to edit my user track as well. Is there a way to fix all of this?

This is most likely not a result of SA-MP, but of the downgrade patch. The save files will still be there, although version 2.0 save files are incompatible with the 1.0 exe. If you want the saves back just reinstall the game from DVD and you'll have version 2.0 again - but you won't be able to play SA-MP.

Having 2 different GTA SA install folders is one way of getting around it.

GTA was already downgraded to 1.0 when my friend started playing and saved her game.
