Watch out 'R's' throwing out another update....



  • Just was checking to see when the next mod breaking update is going to drop and according to several prominent 'Tubers it's this week of March 15th 2021. Save your mod folders and back up files 'cause from what was said, 'the primary focus is on PC to stop online glitches.' Of course that usually means scripthook will be broken and blah, blah, blah.... Otherwise, stay offline until the update is confirmed as a 'breaker' or not. At the minimum remember the last day you signed in and use that to change the time when playing offline for the duration. Cheers!!



  • just download launcher bypass. easy. your game won't be updated and can still be played



  • @drlq99 Many of us are on Steam, I'm sure, so you can't bypass the launch. You backup your game executables and any mods that replaced original GTA V files or folders. Let Steam update, restore your files. Steam will not check again, it assumes update is complete. At least that's my experience going thru 2 updates without any issues.



  • Can confirm 350MB update on Steam, broke SH. Restored GTAV and Mods folder, end of problem.



  • @JohnFromGWN
    I've used launcher bypass and have successfully launched even though I'm on Steam. Followed a YT video where I got the link for launcher bypass from and it worked.



  • I've updated my game and didn't back up GTA5.exe, could someone who has the Cayo Perico update GTA5.exe upload it somewhere and drop a link pls?



  • @JebSL
    Can't do that unfortunately. You're going to have to wait for an update to SH.

  • @JebSL you might want to check out GTA Gamer on youtube.



  • So, SH is broken??



  • @LyKx Outdated, yes.



  • I hate that Steam will never warn you, it just starts updating unexpectedly when you try to launch. I'm not going to check R*'s newswire every friggin day just in case they decide to update so I can know in advance.



  • @PermissionToLand
    I just turn off auto updates and hope I see before I launch. But even after that, I've been able to use the launcher bypass and set things to offline mode to still launch GTA.

    @iammistahwolf I played in 2014 but just rejoined for the sake of modding a few weeks ago and learned about this lol. Is the time duration correct for the 3-4 days on scripthookV getting an update? I thought it was something I did wrong the entire time for about 12 hrs until I finally started reading the forums.



  • @LyKx I just started playing again since 2014 a good week ago just for modding and finally had all the mods I wanted lol. I am devastated lmao. Then look on twitch and all the FiveM servers get to run just fine smh.



  • @The-Canon The great thing about backing up the GTA V .exes and the Mods folder is that you don't have to worry about SH. In fact, I will not update SH when it comes out because my game is restored to its previous stage. One thing that people might try as well, is to try a System Restore - this means ofc being on Windows, having System Restore enabled, and also having the installation of GTA V on the system drive (all of which are No, in my particular case).



  • Someone have the previous version of update.rpf?



  • @The-Canon Yes, the updates are a pain when they're just 'quick fixes' 'R' wants to chuck in to stop glitchers and what-not if you mod offline. As I've found, you have to keep vigilant about pending updates and as others have said, 'back up your game and mod folder'. At the simplest, I figured out long as you stay offline when the update comes, you can play offline for 2-3 days before 'R' blocks you until you log in. You can still play offline indefinitely with the version you have by turning your PC's date back to the last day you logged in. Don't dump your 'Users temp' files in your C: Drive that have 'cloud' in the file name. They have your last log-in info. If you erase those, you might as well get the update 'cause you won't be able to play until you do. Of course, you'll have to wait for scripthook to update as well.



  • @iammistahwolf Just keep in mind that most browsers don't like incorrect dates, this will cause certificate issues etc.
    So if you do roll back your date and you can't browse......

    us stage. One thing that people might try as well, is to try a System Restore - this means ofc being on Wind

    So basically to avoid an update in the future all I have to do is go offline when there is one coming out and backup the files just in case.. I'm going through Steam currently where mine runs, is there a way to bypass it where you can turn automatic updates off indefinitely? lol



  • @The-Canon Valve will not allow you to prevent an update, you can only pause it, but you can disable automatic updates from the settings. Then when you go to play you will see your game is paused, ready to update.

    You don't need to wait for the next update to backup your files. You can do it now. Backup:

    1. the 3 GTA V .exe files (you don't need the language one) - in the installation/root GTA folder
    2. your Mods folder (optional)
    3. Any modded files that replaced original game files (if you forget one, just reinstall that mod)
    4. Optional your script folders (Steam will not delete it).

    Once you've allowed Steam to update it will not check again to see if the update was complete unless you do a verify integrity of files from within Steam. In other words, it will not try to update more than once (until the next Rockstar update that is).

    After the update do a simple copy and paste of your backup files, the GTA5 executables, to overwrite the updated ones.

    When the new SH comes out you have the option of leaving everything as is. Or, if there was something in the update that you wanted, you can update (by doing a verify integrity, or deleting your .exe and let Steam reinstall it quickly) and then play modded SP with the new SH.

    The only important thing to remember, if this gets confusing, is to backup you GTA5.exe, the launcher, and playGTA5. To be perfectly honest, I'm not sure if the last 2 are required, but they are small filesize so i would backup em up too.
