maxorator's borderless windowed mod

This is the mod that fixes all the problems with GTA SA with two monitors, it also allows you to play fullscreen above 60hz. Normally (in singleplayer) you wouldn't really want your game running above 60hz as it starts to mess with the physics of the game. However, that isn't the case for SAMP.

ThirteenAG's widescreen fix

This is the mod that lets you alt tab without pausing your game, another thing that's very useful for people with two monitors.

To install these two mods, simply drag the corresponding files into your GTA directory (or modloader). You can discard the CoordManager that comes with the first link, you don't need it. From the second link, only move the GTASA.WidescreenFix.asi and .ini into your directory, you don't need any of the other stuff.

I've only tested these two together on a clean GTA SA, so if it doesn't work for you it's probably some mod you have that's conflicting. You'll also need an ASI Loader for these mods to work. These two mods are very useful for me and anybody else who switches between in game and the forums a lot, so you can be on the forums or discord/teamspeak while still being able to see what's going on in game.
