Need help fixing game after failing to uninstall 4k satelite map mod

  • Long story short, I installed 4k satelite map mod and tried to uninstall it, but resulted in breaking the game. Then I deleted my "mods" and "scripts" folders in openiv in an attempt to fix it. That didn't work, then I deleted the "maps.rpf" file in D:\Steam\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto V\mods\x64e.rpf\levels\gta5. The problem I'm facing is it crashes after starting new game.

  • @Tise01 you went mods crazy. Do a verify integrity in steam and restart your game. If that doesn't work post.

  • @JohnFromGWN
    I tried a verify file integrity multiple times. it still hasnt worked. thx for responding.

  • @Tise01 in your Gta5 folder, there is a file called dinput8.dll.
    Delete this file and your game will most likely start.
    If it doesn't then you need to do a clean reinstall by first deleting your GTA5 folder.
    The only other fix i can think of is to delete the Gta5 folder that is in my documents.
    That folder contains your saved game, so back it up, and its possible that file or the cloud saves, if u use them, is/are corrupt, which a verify integrity will not repair.

  • @JohnFromGWN
    deleting dinput8.dll didnt work. i deleted the gta 5 folder and am currently reinstalling. ill let you know if it works.

  • @Tise01 Also delete the GTA5 folder in my documents. If the game is not loading without mods and after a verify integrity it is very likely a corrupt saved game file. You don't have any error message?

  • @JohnFromGWN
    I just tried it after it reinstalled from deleting from Documents. IT WORKS!!! Thank you. Now to make sure this doesnt happen again, do you have any tips for me regarding modding gta5?

  • @Tise01 I think that was just bad luck. It happened to me just once, not even sure how or why. A few tips:

    1. Always check the comments section on the Mods page to see if there are unresolved issues. Some of these mods date back to 2016 and may no longer be compatible.

    2. Only install one mod at a time and always in your mods folder. Check if your game is stable before adding another one.

    3. Backup your saved game files.

    4. Backup your mods folder version of update.rpf if you have enough disk space. If not, extract files like dlclist.xml and keep them backed up. If you have any files you modified manually, back those up (most of them will be in update.rpf assuming it's also backed up). Also backup any custom files, for example saved vehicles or outfits from trainers.

    5. Finally backup your GTA5 executable files so that you can play if there is GTA update and the new ScriptHook hasn't been released.


  • @JohnFromGWN
    Thanks again. Ill try not to mess up again.

  • @Tise01 Shit happens. That's why i'm religious about my backups. Has saved my ass so many times.
