    GTA: San Andreas? On the Mac? It's never been released. It only exists on torrent sites as a Cider wrapped app.

    Yay piracy, eh?

    The cheats for the Windows version work in the Cider port. I have no idea what your problem would be.

    You can buy the Windows version, never install it or use it, and then get the port/make your own from the files on the disk.

    That's not piracy, eh?

    How do you enter the cheats then? Maybe I don't know how to enter them...

    Type the words, just as you would the code on a PC.

    But the cheats still don't work. I type "rocketman" during the game and it doesn't work. I type "professionalskit" and it doesn't work.

    Interesting. I don't know anything personally about Cider and the way it does things, only that they work for me. That's a bummer, man. :eek:

    Yeah, it's pretty boring without cheats :( Can't get the jetpack

    Is there a GTA IV torrent for Macs? If not, I wish someone would make a torrent... from what i've heard, it's far more advanced than GTA San Andreas.

    Couple of cheats that work on my Cidered version:

    Healthburst: HESOYAM
    Jetpack: YECGAA
    Weapons 1: LXGIWYL
    Infinite Ammo: WANRLTM
    Spawn Hovercraft: KGGGDKP
    Never wanted: AEZAKMI

    Should work, mate! :cool:

    EDIT: Added my print-to-pdf file of the cheats I use... (see below) :)

    EDIT2: some Cidered apps in my Dock:
    - Unreal (original.. COOL)
    - GTA San Andreas (painfully fun)
    - Tiger Woods '08 (I bought this game, then found out it is a blatant "official" Cider-port :rolleyes: ... still fun though)

    Still doesn't work!!! What is the key setup for your game? Maybe it's different from mine, that's why they don't work...

    It's all default... I usually agree with the defaults settings.
    Keyboard set to US...?

    The cheats are simply entered during the game, no capslock or anything.. just type.
    I have no idea why they won't work on yours. :confused:

    My keyboard is set to default and still doesn't work. I downloaded the game a torrent from thepiratebay.org - GTA San Andreas for Intel Macs. I downloaded it using Vuze. The game, when I open it, says "Cider" on top. I don't know what the problem is... How did you download yours?

    I'm sorry, I can't tell where I got it...

    But, this is the file info of the zip file, so maybe you can see if it is different to yours.

    For mods, you are limited to replacing some of the engine files in the game through Show Package Contents. I haven't managed to find out how to do SA-MP or Cleo mods, but the best ones that work are:

    spaceeinstein_Mod_v3.0.zip - an all in one excellent hack. Believe me, once you install it, you will NEVER want to go back!!! Say goodbye to your current game progress though.

    and a modified handling.cfg which will make all of the vehicles about twice the speed. I forgot where I got mine from, but I still have it. :D

    Google "san andreas intel mac", but make sure you own the game otherwise you'll be doing piracy. If you want to change the icon of the game, here's one I made:

    By the way, is there any way to measure the FPS? I'm only getting about 30fps on the windows version at 1280x800, but on the cider port, the graphics seem way way better and can be run at 1680x1080 at what seems a higher fps (this is on an iMac 2.4ghz ATI Radeon hd 2400). Also, all of the cars look shiny and silver! :)

    you

    You might want to check the frame limiter in the advanced graphics settings...the game limits the framerate to a 'cinematic' 25 fps by default, but the settings on the cidered version are totally messed up. To me the cider GTA is totally not worth it...messed up settings, weird glitches, keyboard problems, texture problems. I'd rather just boot into Windows and play a legit copy.

    The only problems I get is the occasional missing texture, the mouse not working on the menu screen and the space bar and 's' being interpretted as the same key, but I find that the Windows version has more glitches and crashes than the cider version. Perhaps it's down to the download, because I know there are different versions, some of which don't let you use the mouse or the spacebar at all in game. The one I downloaded was the distro marked "working perfect". I don't think I'm allowed to give any links, but I think we all know how to use Google! :p

    If 25fps is the limited option, then I think I'm close to double that, which I think is quite an achievement on my spec. It's hard to measure these things though by eye - that's why I asked about a fps counter!
