Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,

i saw a lot Topics about "how to play mta on a mac". Nobody really gave a right answer. Yes i know macs arent made for gaming but a lot still want to play it on the mac. So heres my Tutorial. You will get full FPS as normal on a windows pc. Now we start with the Tutorial:


What you gonna need is:

Crossover - http://www.codeweavers.com/products/ - 30 Days Trail

X11 - already installed on the mac - if it ask to update - do it

GTA San Andreas Windows Edition with crack

MTA San Andreas - http://www.multitheftauto.com

MTA Fonts and dll - CLICK TO DOWNLOAD -> http://www.xup.in/dl,17062410/Archiv.zip/

Step 1:

Copy GTA San andreas and the Mta installer on your desktop. Right Click the Mta installer.exe and open with Crossover.

A new window will pop up. Go to the last tap and make sure that a windows xp bottle is checked:


Click on install. Click next. Click next. MTA Location -> Next. Then it asks for the GTA SA Location. Click Browse:

->Computer -> /Z: -> Users -> YOUR USER NAME -> Desktop -> Then click on the gta folder than on "ok.

Click next next next.. On the last dialog unckeck: "Start MTA NOW"!

Step 2:

Download my fonts and my dll. Open Crossover with the Spotlight:


Click on -> configure -> manage bottle:


Click on -> extended -> open C: drive in finder:


Then -> Windows -> Fonts. Copy in the 3 fonts.


Go back to windows -> System32 -> Copy my winmm.dll in there.

Now you can close the finder. And the crossover window.

Go to the crossover bar -> programs -> MTA San Andreas.

Step 3:


To Close mta press quit on the main menu then the screen will turn black then press Command+Q to go back to your desktop.
