[Linux/Proton] GTA:SA Widescreen Fix Crashes Game
Yaumeister 1 Sep, 2018
While running the default game seems fine on Steam Play, trying to do the same with the "downgrade" that seems essential crashes to desktop.

The closest I got was using the "Reborn" version as documented here, since this just needs to overwrite files as opposed to running other EXE patches:

However the "widescreen fix" is the problem, and the key is the vorbisFile.dll, the default is a mere 65k in size, and the one included in the fix is 1.2MB.

If anyone figures out how to overcome this, please do share.

The Proton log detailing the error:

I've been using the file that comes with Silent's ASI loader 1.3, it's seems to effectively prevent the crash you're getting
Yaumeister 2 Sep, 2018
Thanks for the pointer, unfortunately still crashing.

In the log the main error message is this:
Unhandled exception: page fault on write access to 0x00225004 in 32-bit code (0x004692d0).

Does this mean it's looking for the 32-bit wineprefix, but I don't think that is enabled in Proton?
lucifertdark 2 Sep, 2018
If that was it my copy wouldn't work either, the only mod I have installed is the actual loader, nothing else & it just works with my native resolution 1920x1080.

edit: oops I just told a fib, I DO have something installed

it fixes the resolution & prevents some crashes, but you need Silent's ASI loader as well.
Yaumeister 7 Sep, 2018
Thanks for the guidance, yes managed to get it working with just the ASI loader and Silent Patch!

Don't have much luck with some other key mods such as Skygfx, will have to do some testing and see what works/don't.

Glad to help. :D I tried the chaos mod myself & it did nothing, but at least we can play the game in it's original state for now. ;)
