I have trouble with mods whenever I have to edit extratitleupdatedata.meta files and also if there aren't file location directions in a read me, do I use my mods or update directory?
@AKorus update should be in mods
Never ever edit
extratitleupdatedata.meta, not even when told so by a readme.txt
It is not needed and could cause problems
When you have OpenIV installed you get a OpenIV.asi file in your game directory
That makes sure you can use a mods folder, it even creates one for you
Your mods should go in
where update.rpf is a copy from the one found in
This is one of the files that gets overwritten when an update is pushed by R*
making it so you have to re-do all mods in update.rpf, again
When there is no x64e.rpf for example in
\GAMES\GTA5\modsand you're told to add new files to it
then first copy it over to that folder from
Never change files within the original game folder!
That way you keep your original files intact. This is called the mods folder method
