I can start the game fine, but it lags so bad! When i was on xp a couple of
days ago it played fine, now i get like 5-10 fps in my house where i spawn.

All other games work fine, i want a fix!

I had the exact same problem. So, I found a "crack" and it worked. So, that
ruled out any driver issues. I've since removed the crack because even though
I have a legal copy of the game, I'm sure I'm in violation of some sort of
agreement due to "modifying" the code.

I just hope Rockstar or Microsoft come out with some compatibility patch for
it because it's ridiculous that I can't play a game that I legally own.

This and Splinter Cell Double Agent are the only two games so far that have
given me fits. Double Agent works at times and others it doesn't.

Frustrating, but that's to be expected with a new OS. I'm sure in time,
things will get ironed out. I just hope the software companies are aware of
it.

BTW, the crack removes the CD check and that proves to me that there is an
issue with the copy protection within San Andreas.

Again, I hope they fix this. I don't trust cracks (who knows what they
screwed up) and I scanned the snot out of it before I installed it to ensure
there were no trojans or viruses, but you can't always catch them.
