Did you download the "IMG Tool V2" on the page you linked? From what I can tell, what you linked is nothing more than a map modification, so you have to install it differently than placing the files within a directory.

heres what you do
make a backup copy of your data models and movies folders

then copy the ones you get from the download into your san andreas folder and it should work

i know a ****load about gta modding probably too much

what you should do is learn how to edit gta.dat and how to add map peices in easily then you should be able to just take one look at it and know what the problem is
