Mods won't work
I was wondering if someone could help me out. I've been modding for about three weeks now and using the fitgirl ultra repack to download add on cars, mods, peds, maps, etc. and have had no problems. However, yesterday I bought the game from Target for $40 and installed the seven discs over a course of about 4 or so hours. Once the game was done downloading and installing, I let patch 1.41 1.0.1180.2 install and once that was done, I went ahead and loaded a 100% save file into my saves so I don't have to do everything all over again. I installed OpenIV and the three recommended plugins, Scripthook V and Community Scripthook V.NET, as I did using fitgirl's repack, and none of my mods will load on vanilla gta, using the same exact method I used before. I know this because it lets me switch to online when fitgirl's would not. included is a screenshot of my files https://imgur.com/a/JcHtq not sure exactly why this is happening but I hope I did not spend forty bucks just to not be able to use mods on the physical copy. Help would be much appreciated, thanks.
I had this problem for a short while, some time ago. The way I "fixed" it was by not using a mods folder at all. I moved copies of original game files to a separate subfolder and placed all my modded files in original locations. As long as you keep the 'OpenIV.asi' file in the root directory, it should load up all your mods. I even created a .bat file to swap files around depending on whether it is modded or not. This all started for me some time ago with version 944.1, I think. Every update I try to check if it works normally for me with a mods folder but it always crashed on startup (update.rpf error). I just left it at this method because it just works for me. I am not saying it will definitely work for you, but it's a thought.
