1. Update, aparently the Steam and the Rockstar Launcher and the Mobile Version of GTA:SA share nearly 95% of all code. Meaning they just wanted a GTA:SA version on mobile with all the fixxins such as dumping the songs they lost the licence to ( mostly Michael Jackson songs and a few others ) and then just tried to dump the same thing on PC with little to no tweaking. I guess some old copy from 2006 with the name SkidMark actually is better then.

    1. @drinkingpony This is, uh, not accurate at all. The current Steam version is just a patch-updated version of the original 2005 Windows PC port designed by Rockstar North. The iPhone/Windows Store/Xbox 360 version of the game is a different port built in a different graphics engine by War Drum Studios, the song license issue is entirely separate.

      1. @mrmattimation Seemingly for Steam it is mostly a regional thing, or maybe it is tied to when you bought it. Not sure actually.

        Also I take trouble with that song licence thing being a seperate thing. Seeing that the songs that the BG Fix was supposed to 'fix' was a change that needed to be carried forwards to the MG.

        However in the BG you can still snoop the files and pick out the MJ songs if you are crafty. the MG simply does not have those songs.
