As mentioned above, you need to download CLEO, ASI Loader, and Modloader. CLEO is a plugin that is required to run mods with .cs scripts. Whereas, ASI Loader is needed while installing Mods with file extension .asi in your game. And a Modloader is required to install the mods in GTA San Andreas smoothly. With that out of the way, here’s how you can install all these 3 files.

How to Install ASI Loader

While searching on the internet, we came across Silent’s ASI Loader. You can download this ASI Loader and extract it. Further, simply move both the provided .dll files (vorbisHooked.dll & vorbisFile.dll) to your GTA San Andreas directory. After moving, create a folder named ‘scripts’ inside the game directory.

How to Install Modloader

Similar to the ASI Loader, you can download the Modloader from the internet as well. Once downloaded, extract the Modloader and open it. From there, move the ‘modloader.asi’ & ‘modloader’ folders to your game directory. Also, keep in mind that the Modloader is a .asi file, so ASI Loader needs to be installed first.

How to Install CLEO

At last, use your internet browser to download CLEO plugin. Head to the download location and extract the files. Once done, move the ‘cleo’ and ‘bass.dll’ and ‘cleo.asi’ to your GTA San Andreas game directory.
