SAMP/GTA SA Mac OS Catalina

Post by Revis » Thu Oct 22, 2020 6:15 pm

Hey what’s good guys, so I recently got a MacBook handed over to me and I’ve been trying to get GTA SA & SAMP to run on it but I’ve been having issues figuring it out as I’m not that well informed on how the MacBook works. I’ve watched YouTube tutorials and googled but I’m still having trouble! I was wondering if anyone out there could help me out trying too figure it out? You can reach me in this thread, PM, or on my discord Revis#3778 . Thanks, I appreciate you guys!

Unfortunately, Mac OS X Catalina has had 32-bit application support removed, so Wine will not work.

The only way (as far as I know) you can get GTA SA running is by running Windows on your Mac, either by Setting Bootcamp up OR getting Parallel Desktop

Try to follow this video step-by-step, it worked for a lot of people in that way and might work for you too.

Also just a quick note, I personally don't recommend Mac for gaming and you may face some performance issue, but good luck anyway! Hope the methode above works for you.

My man right here is awesome, spent 2-2/12 hours of his own time to assist me. He was walking me through everything clearly and was super friendly the whole time, you the real MVP.
