screw rockstar and they updates...



  • I started up the game then went to the kitchen to make some food and when I got back it already installed an update and because of this I can't play. GTA V is the only game I own/like, .........so this complete utter whale crap, guys. SCREW THIS SHIT!

    Now the game won't launch coz ScriptHookV got outdated of course. I assume we can just wait for dev-c to update it, which is probably gonna take days or weeks maybe months. Oh who knows what else won't work after this.

    R* can get the finger.

    It's never taken months. Longest ever was maybe 1.5 weeks, and that was in the midst of OpenIV being C&Ded.

    If you're on Steam then disable automatic updates. Only launch the game via GTAVLauncherBypass so that GTA V doesn't automatically update when starting it.



  • @Jitnaught i made a backup from my GTA, if you want i can send the files to you so you can play in the meantime when scripts and trainers and all stuff gets updated.

    You can no longer disable automatic updates in STEAM.

    As for GTAVLauncherBypass, you don't need it. STEAM keeps appmanifest_271590.acf (for GTA V) in the 'steamapps' folder (one above 'common''). Once you restored your files, STEAM won't try and update every time you start (unless there's actually an even newer update than the current one).

    P.S. The manifest has an entry called

    "AutoUpdateBehavior"		"0"
    

    This must be a remnant from when you could still disable AutoUpdates per game, as assuredly, short of going putting STEAM in offline mode (not recommended, btw, as it's only a temporary stop-gap measure), STEAM will auto-update the game.



  • This guy spawn the new vehicles with simple trainer. So wtf? :O :o:



  • I am new to pc and I am about to buy gta 5 for the real life mods from watching Steve the gamer55

    What exactly does this update mean?



  • there are so many options to avoid updates. I do love it when ppl freak out though. "screw rockstar" , LMMFAO. maybe its your fault for not being smart enough to avoid the updates. it's really easy to do.

    ?

    Auto updates

    I'm still on 1180 using GTAVLauncherBypass and automatic updates disabled (automatic in the sense of "no user interaction"). I would have noticed if Steam tried to update the game because I have a data cap! :P
    GTAVLauncherBypass works better for me than keeping a backup of the appmanifest. appmanifests were always finicky for me and you would have to make sure to replace it every time GTA V updates. I would rather just use GTAVLauncherBypass.

    @8541ss Just because somebody does not know something does not mean they are ignorant or stupid. Don't be rude.



  • actually, not knowing something is pretty much the definition of "ignorance". why feel sorry for people who ACTIVELY choose to not educate themselves. I see it everyday and in all sorts of situations and I have to tell you, I find it hilarious. no excuse for not arming yourself with knowledge, but coming on the internet and crying about it ? nah..



  • @Mitchz hi what version do you have? I want it can you send it to me? thankyou

    GTAVLauncherBypass

    That's an interesting option there. I know you can't avoid the update any more, regularly, but with 'on launch only', along with GTAVLauncherBypass, this might actually do the trick. :) Though last time I tried to run a game exe manually, STEAM started to complain. But definitely worth the try!

    There's nothing preventing anyone (including you) from just adding the new DLC to your mod's dlclist.xml, and use the new cars. You likely won't get all playable content that way, but the new assets, for sure.
