Default GTA: San Andreas for PC; Need help

#1 Is it just me, or is shooting at people in this WAY harder than any FPS game?
#2 How the F do you get the timing down in the lowrider challaenge. When I wait until the arrow is directly inside the box, or even JUST entering the box, I always get a "too late", if i do it a bit before, it almost seems to randomly tell me bad or good, but either way, I can't beat this. In a VERY similar minigame in the Leisure Suit Larry game, I do great, and that one is MUCH faster. ANy ideas?

I'm playing this on Xbox, and have had no problems with what you are describing. The latest PC Gamer has a review which gave the PC version a very high score. It didn't mention any real control issues.

I'm guessing you just need to time it a bit better in the lowrider challenges. Do you also struggle with the dance challenges?

As for aiming, there should be a way to lock-on to enemies. I would be very surprised if this feature isn't in the PC version. So, locking on is obviously easy.
Crouch for better aiming while not locked on.

FOr shooting, maybe I'm Missing something then. When I first got a gun, it said I could scroll targets with a certain key, but that never worked. This may have something to do with me changing some of the keys' functions, where there is overlap; I'll look into that.

As far as the dancing, I haven't gotten there yet. I got the Prima GTA:SA guide and it's not much help. I am trying to finish the Cesar Vilapondo mission.

Saw the PCG article, which is why i got the game, my first ever GTA.

AUto-target is your friend. You mentioned you might have remapped, check to make sure you didnt.

The trick really is to listen to the beat of the music and use that as your timing for hitting the buttons. Ive done pretty well on this mini-game using this method. I know thats sort of vague but I am pretty sure you will see what I am talking about. I really dont try to time the button in the circle precisely.

Yeah, I'm using keyboard/mouse, as it is on my laptop,(My only comp, currently.) Kinda cumbersome.

I always hold the right mouse button and bring up the targetting thingie. Using that, I haven't had any problems shooting.

The lowrider part sucked. Try & wait until the arrow is all the way inside before clicking. The arrow will light up as a denser blue color than if you miss. I seem to have gotten more points just by concentrating on a few and getting them perfectly aligned rather than trying to get *all* the arrows.
