Game will not start up since update

  • Right so ever since the update my game won't boot up for some reason, The social club thing comes up as it always does then i get a little spinning icon on my cursor eventually the social club bit comes back up saying 'Grand Theft Auto exited unexpectedly'

    I Did have quite a lot of mods before the update so i think it could be something to do with that maybe? Or would i have to copy the updated Update.RPF into my mods folder again?

    Still fairly new to this so yeah


    Updates break mods. ScriptHookV is not updated yet so you can't use ScriptHookV and ScriptHookVDotNet scripts yet, but OpenIV should stilll work. You do need to update update.rpf

  • Right, that's fine but i've deleted my mods folder out of the game directory and still wont load, reinstalled the game and it still wont boot up, I Have no idea what's wrong with my game


    I made a simple guide about all this that's pinned: https://forums.gta5-mods.com/topic/14693/quick-start-guide-to-modding-grand-theft-auto-v/

    Specifically, just disabling dinput8.dll will stop all mods from working (well, aside from enbseries but that's not a problem) so the game should launch fine. You can also disable openiv.asi so archive mods are not loaded (if you used the mods folder method). Disabling ScriptHookV.dll just disables all SHV-based scripts.

  • Yeah but i've uninstalled the game and reinstalled the game in a new location on my other hard drive and it's still not booting, no mods no nothing, basically a fresh copy of the game and it's not booting


    If there are no mod remnants and it still doesn't want to launch, try removing your settings (Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA V\settings.xml). Otherwise ask R*.

  • @GavinsBeard I seem to remember we can start GTA V with a verify parameter (which repairs the game in case it's messed up) but I forgot how exactly.
    Could be this ->

    but I don't feel like watching the 6 minutes as I am not personally affected.
