Texture Loading Issues.

  • I've been having this issue since 1.0.757.4, probably due to some mod. I have tolerated it this far, and I couldn't take it anymore so I decided to ask the community.
    My problem is that the HQ textures load only as a small box around the player. Outside the "box", slightly-low quality textures load, not ultra-low quality textures. It cannot be notified when I'm on a road, but when I move to a grass field, or a mountainside, it happens. I use the best quality shadows, and they seem to be affected too, because sometimes they don't load until they are inside the "box range".
    I play everything maxed out, and it cannot be my PC. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :smiley:

  • @Akila_Reigns Sometimes, OpenIV can mess up your .ytd files that you have bigger textures put into. Make sure to not touch your computer while openiv is saving. Ive seen .ytd files with corrupted textures because of this. Might be the issue.

  • @Weirdoutworld .ytds of vehicles? That's going to take a while to check them all. I removed a large number of mods due to the biker update, but the problem persists.. :slight_frown:

  • @Akila_Reigns Do you see a kind of line where things change quality in an area around the player? Because I notice that when I'm in the desert or on grassy hillsides. It's like a wave that moves in front of the player as you walk.

    All my shadows seem to suddenly drop to blocky black squares in the same kind of way too.

  • @LeeC2202 Yes, you are correct.

  • @Akila_Reigns When I first started playing GTAV, I never noticed it. Then I had to reinstall windows and my performance turned to crap in the desert and I could see this line around me when I walked around grassy areas. I have no idea what causes it or where it came from but I am convinced it wasn't there before I did the reinstall.

    If I use any guns that kick up dust in the desert, my performance drops massively.., and I don't remember that happening either.

    Edit: And this is on 100% vanilla graphics.

  • @LeeC2202 oh.... thats not good at all man about your performance.

    Thats what me & my friends call the "renderbox" try to play with extended shadow distance setting. I reduced it to the firat notch & that helped it a lot. But you loose distant shadows all together.

  • Thats why I play with highest camera setting. Makes the renderbox biggest.

  • @Weirdoutworld What do you mean by "camera setting"?

  • @Akila_Reigns the V key or select on a controller. The box should get bigger & smaller with the view. Atleast for shadow rendering.

  • @Weirdoutworld I mostly play on first person. So are you telling me that this is an issue in the game, and it's not caused by a mod?

  • @Akila_Reigns no, something is definitely wrong with your game man. Sorry if I was misleading. The game has always renderd HD shadows only inside this box. Textures should always be loaded.

    Do you update your graphics drivers with clean installs? Using DDU (display driver uninstaller)?

  • @Weirdoutworld No , I just update them via GeForce Experience.

  • @Akila_Reigns hmmm. Geforce experience can leave little conflicting files behind that can cause issues in games. See if any other games have issues. Go to DDU.com & read about clean driver installs.

  • @Weirdoutworld OK, I'll check it out. Thanks.

  • @Weirdoutworld said in Texture Loading Issues.:

    See if any other games have issues.

    I opened up Need For Speed Rivals after a loooooooooong time, only to find out it's not loading textures properly as well.
    Need For Speed Most Wanted 2012, no problem in it.
    Forza Horizon 3, saw some late loading textures.
    COD Black Ops 3, no problem.
    And some others in my game list, I don't think I should write them all. It seems like it happens in large open world games..
    I will try to reinstall my graphics drivers via the app you mentioned. Thank you for helping.

  • It's possible it's your mods, try giving it a whirl on a clean game if you haven't already.

    It's also likely that it's your graphics card, seeing as how a lot of people complained about similar problems with that graphics card. (GeForce or something, right?) It's also possible you have a virus, run a scan if you haven't. However depending on what kind of anti-virus you may have, it may not list or get rid of most viruses.

    Also run a defrag with Disk Defragmenter (now called Disk Optimizer on Windows 10, and I think 8 as well. What a stupid name change, really.), after that, restart the system for the defrag to fully take effect. If you don''t know what it does, it basically clears up useless files (files that do nothing, have nothing, and have no purpose other than to slow your PC down. Basically it slows down your computer from aging. It helps especially when you're picky on what files you want to clear from your computer. It probably seems stupid to bring up, but it helps. Your graphics card could be having a hard time working with a lot of crap stored on your PC, so a defrag might make a difference.

    But, it's Nvidia, so it's more than likely it's your graphics card. (If GTA 5 isn't the only game with problems it's either your graphics card or a virus.) I'd recommend using a graphics card from AMD. Unlike Nvidia, they get complaints, yeah, but not as many.

    Hopefully I helped you out a little.

  • @krashadam AMD is the enemy

    @Akila_Reigns Dont be a traitor. Lol be sure to use the recomended settings for DDU. (Reboot & clean in safe mode.) Youll see when you check it out.

  • @krashadam I was joking. Wasnt trying to be rude. Sorry.

    I pefer Nvidia because of the Nvidia control panel. A lot more options/user friendly than AMD catalyst. Atleast to me.

  • @Akila_Reigns Be sure to get back to us afet your clean driver install. Im really curious about your problem.

  • @Weirdoutworld I found out that it happens only when I'm using 8× MSAA.. When I reduced it to 4×, the box is gone.
    @krashadam thanks for your help, but I'm quite satisfied with my 1080, I may try an AMD someday .😃

  • @Akila_Reigns That's interesting, I'm only using 4xMSAA and I still see it... using the same GPU. And if I use no MSAA at all, I see it even worse. :(

  • @Akila_Reigns The AA in this game is really like rolling dice. It depens of the hardware if its going to be effective or broken as shit lol. Are you using nvidia inspector? Im using fxaa & 4x supersampling in nvidia control panel. With high quality msaa in ENBseries.ini. fxaa only in-game. Yes, the fxaa blurs out the jaggies instead of sharping them, its worth it to me.

    Play with settings in nvidia control panel. May help your cause if you havent & they are all set to (global settings). Your missing out on great features.

  • @LeeC2202 You have a GTX 1080? Nice! What are your PC specs anyway? I haven't seen you mentioning them anywhere.

  • @Weirdoutworld I have inspector, I'll mess with the Nvidia Control Panel and see if it helps.
