[Tutorial] How to play State of Decay - SA:MP Source
« on: December 19, 2017, 04:54:30 PM »
Note: SOD:SAMP requires the latest version of SA-MP & GTA:SA installed on your PC. SA-MP may also requires you to patch your DVD version which is what will be explained here.

Step #1: Download/Install Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for PC

Although Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is now an old game, it's safe to double check the system requirements.

OS: Microsoft® Windows® 2000/XP (Mac: OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8 or higher)
Processor: 1Ghz Pentium III or AMD Athlon Processor (Mac: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor or better)
Memory: 256MB of RAM (Mac: 1GB of RAM)
Graphics: 64MB Video Card - Geforce 3 or better (Mac: ATI X1600, NVIDIA 7300GT, Intel X3100 integrated graphics chip, or better)
Hard Drive: 3.6GB of free hard disk space (minimal install) (Mac: 5.2GB of free hard disk space)
Misc: Software installations required including DirectX and Sony DADC SecuROM (Mac: This game will NOT run on PowerPC (G3/G4/G5))

Note: Once you've checked your PC's specs go ahead and install GTA:SA on your PC. (Both CD and Ripped versions will work)

Step #2: Download/Install SA-MP Third-Party Patch for GTA:SA

Important: This step is needed if you have Version 2.0 of the DVD version.

Once you have GTA:SA installed on your PC you will need to download San Andreas Multiplayer (SA-MP) on your PC. But before you install the client on your PC, you must first patch your GTA:SA version with SA:MP's Third-Party Patch. You can download it directly here:

Step #3: Download/Install San Andreas Multiplayer (SA-MP)

Once you've patched your version(if required), it's now time to install the latest version of the SA-MP Client which can be downloaded here:

Accept the licence agreement then locate your GTA:SA directory and click install. You now have SA-MP installed on your PC and can join the SOD:SAMP server.

Step #4: Connect to State of Decay - SA:MP Source (SOD:SAMP)

Once you have SA-MP installed on your PC you can now join the SOD:SAMP server. Simply click the orange square with a tick and input the server ip address (found here). It then should show up in your list and you can now join the server by double clicking the server and clicking connect. Enjoy!
