    Questions about parallels desktop and san andreas.
    Hello, I recently bought and downloaded Grand Theft Auto San Andreas for mac, from I'm not an expert on how to mod or install things on the mac version of it. Basically I downloaded the Multiplayer component to the game from SA-MP San Andreas Multiplayer mod for Grand Theft Auto (GTA SA). Basically, I just need to install the program into my san andreas folder. Problem is, the installer is .exe.

    The GTA game I downloaded is essentially a cider port it looks like. All the same files and the such as the PC version, I just can't figure out how to mod it or install my files.Any idea on how I could run the installer to install the multiplayer component to the GTA game on snow leopard? I don't have my own copy of windows, and I don't know if I would be able to run the installer through parallel systems, or just get the PC version and run that through parallel systems. I know nothing about the program to be blunt, and don't currently have parallel systems yet. I'm new to this, I don't know if I need windows or not to do that. Thanks if anyone can help me, I've been trying to figure this out for two days.

    If the installer is an .exe it can only be executed in a Windows environment. However, if it's just a executable zip file, you might be able to extract it using any unarchiver and copy the files into the right game location..

    That page says "for the PC version" are you sure it's going to work on Mac?

    I'm not sure honestly, I read that the gta trilogy released for mac is the exact same files as the PC version, just running through cider. I thought if the files are all the same then It would work if I could get it installed. Again though, I'm not that experienced with modding on macs or cider.
