    I have not seen anything official...

    This site has some nice GTA VC hacks. Their *.TXD viewer can open the TXD files from your GTA SA disc and view/save the GTA SA pics, such as the loader screens. The available programs do not allow you to inject your own pics, however. I started work on a program to do this, but ran out of free time. Its a derivative of the bitmap specification. Anyway, there are several files worth looking at on your GTA SA disc. The simplest are the text files. I assume these can be edited. Once you understand what some of these files do, the sky is the limit. There is also a PSS viewer for viewing cutscenes, etc, if you check on the 'net.

    The data folder has text files for viewing/editing.
    carcol.dat - The colors available for each vehicle
    handling.cfg - The physics of each car; speed, accel.
    popcycle.dat - The density of people in a given area
    shopping.dat - Improve your sex appeal, respect here!
    weapon.dat - Very interesting!

    The text folder has a file with the full game script. Mine is american.GXT, and can be viewed with notepad.

    As for testing your edits, you can burn a backup DVD that has your changes and run it on a modded PS2, or write it to a harddrive, and run it using HDLoader.

    Here is a great resource for learning what each file is for...

    Good luck, and let us know what you find out!
