The offer of GTA San Andreas free with Rockstar Games Launcher represents an indispensable opportunity for all those who wish to recover the open-world blockbuster of the Grande R and discover, by doing so, how to run on a PC once you have installed the latest hyper-realistic models they improve the graphics.
Of the innumerable amateur projects that have been published for free in recent years to modernize the GTA San Andreas graphics department, one of the most famous and appreciated is certainly the one carried out by the modder “Makarus” with the revision SA_DirectX 2.0 of the ENB Series tools.
Thanks to the work done by Makarus, and the efforts made by the talented amateur programmer collective behind the ENB Series project, the technological and graphic chasm that separates us from the Grand Theft Auto launched in 2004 on PS2 and subsequently on Xbox and PC is exceeded in a brilliant way. Through a strong injection of very high definition textures, rewritten animations, new polygonal models and shaders that distort the lighting system of the original title, the scene of the GTA San Andreas modder succeeds in fact in the enterprise of updating the masterpiece of Rockstar to make it appreciable even by the younger generations.
The other great advantage of this mod, of course, lies in the “lightness” of the original graphics engine and, therefore, in the ability of the most modern PCs to manage with relative tranquility the hyper-realistic version (or, better to say, hyper mod data ) of GTA San Andreas. Quite different is instead the discourse of the 4K mods of GTA 5 with Ray Tracing, whose extremely high hardware demands make their widespread distribution very unlikely. In any case, take a look at the video at the beginning of the article and the example images you find at the bottom of the news and tell us what you think.
