PSA - Do not add an entry in extratitleupdatedata.meta to your addons



  • As title said, do not add an entry in extratitleupdatedata.meta to your addons. It's completely useless for you. This method is used by Rockstar to patch certain things in released DLCs like vehicle colors, problems with MP clothing, etc. You are not doing anything like Rockstar so do not use it, please.



  • @CP and everyone else this is correct. That is very old outdated information. I started playing gta when 1.0944 was just about to roll out and never touched extratitleupdate. A couple people that have problems adding more addon folders into their game i tell them to use an original unmodded extratitleupdate when they modify theirs and it usually fixes their problems they are having.

    No mod on here needs to touch extratitleupdatedata.meta file so that step in any instructions for mods can always be ignored.

    @CP Most of the people are familiar with this info. but Thanks for sharing :) Thumbs up.



  • @FoxtrotDelta I don't think so, because I still see mods with that info.


  • MODERATOR

    @CP you can check my mods. all read me files don't have those steps for mine. and some of them also state that there is no need to edit extratitleupdate. as it can cause crashes. but may be all people are not familiar with it. and some of us don't really want to re-upload 1 year old mod, just for 1 kb Read me file. that too only 1 single line edit. so yea.

    but most people know it.

    Again Thanks For sharing.

    One of my mods changes/uses that file as the dlc_patch folder does not contain the DLC that has the file which needs to be changed, and stock extratitleupdatedata.meta does not have info that the DLC should be patched.

    Unless someone is interested in copying a few GB's of DLC's into the mods folder just so that one single ~100kb file can be replaced, it's not always a great idea to ignore that instruction.
