Excuse me, wt*^%$^&
Seems like I messed up setting up my VisualV and NVR...how could this graphical glitch be fixed? Thanks.
Not seen anything like that before. What GPU do you have?
A Few Ideas:
- Download & use Display Driver Uninstaller to uninstall your GPU driver (in Windows Safe Mode) & then redownload (don't use the same copy if you have one stored) & install the newest driver.
- Backup your 'mods' folder 'update.rpf' & 'common.rpf' & then replace them with vanilla versions from the game folder and/or any backups you've made of them previously & see if it makes any difference?
- Remove NVR dlcpack entries from 'dlclist.xml' (covered by previous 'update.rpf' replace but thought I'd mention it anyway).
- Remove any overclocks you have (especially GPU).
- Remove 'dinput8.dll' from game root folder/rename 'mods' & see if you get the same thing with the vanilla game?
VisualV & NVR installs are pretty simple, doubt you messed them up but it's entirely possible for any install to corrupt a '.rpf' archive. My money is on GPU driver corruption/erroneous settings (DDU will fix that) with '.rpf' corruption a close second
See how you get on with that & what you can figure out & get back to me
@a63nt-5m1th Thanks for the reply! I'm on a laptop with the GTX1050. I'll try uninstalling and then reinstalling the latest version of drivers for the GPU.
I did redownload via DDU, no luck.
Also tested Vanilla graphics, still nothing.
Ok, when you say you tested 'vanilla graphics' do you mean you tested the vanilla install (ie no mods or 'mods' folder, removed 'dinput8.dll', all vanilla) or do you mean you put the vanilla timecycle files back in 'mods' folder 'update.rpf' & tested that way? Test the game completely vanilla (no mods, no reshade, no ENB, no scripts etc) if you haven't already.
Also, a bit more info on exactly how/when the problem first appeared will help with diagnosis. Any edits or other new mods installed around the same time etc?
Other Ideas/Things to Try:
Do you have any software to monitor how hot your GTX 1050 is getting while you game? Any idea what your max temps are?
If not, download HWMonitor, install & open it & then run the game & see what max temps you get
Also try dropping your in-game graphics setting to their minimum & see if that makes any difference? If it does, try one setting at a time to see if you can pinpoint which one is causing it/may be related to it happening
Open up Nvidia Control Panel & make sure your GPU profile for GTA V 'Power management mode' is set to 'Prefer maximum performance' & that there are no other resource hogging settings like Antiailiasing etc turned on. Easiest way is probably to use the '[Restore]' button & then set 'Power management mode' to 'Prefer maximum performance' & then hit '[Apply]' (bottom right).
Ignore my G-Sync & MFAA settings etc
Installed any mods to the game folder? Any Reshade or ENB installed? Any other mods installed that were running while you tested the vanilla game? (if you did that?) Remove & test again if so
Also, can you:
Run 'sfc /scannow' from elevated (admin privileges) command prompt. Instructions here.
Run check disk on OS & game hard drive (if different). Instructions here.
Note: Just tick 'Automatically fix file system errors' but make sure 'Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors' is unticked (unless you are prepared to potentially reinstall Windows (if scanning C:/OS drive) or your game (if scanning install drive if different to OS drive)).
Have a run through that & get back to me with any info you find
@a63nt-5m1th Thanks for getting back to me! The problem first appeared when I installed LSPDFR (along with RPH), but uninstalling them made no difference. I also use no reShade or ENB. I'm going to try out your suggestion to turn to minimal graphic settings.
I found it! For some reason, the game was set to run on DX10 instead of DX11, haha!
Nice one! That was on my list but the other way around (ie try going to dx10/10.1 from dx11). I'll remember that if I ever see it again anyway.
Thanks for letting me know
