Steam directory i guess?



  • Hi, I hope i’m in the right topic channel for this question but, I was wondering if there was a way to have two desktop shortcuts for GTAV (Steam) like when I open one of them it opens my clean,backup gta and when I open the other one it opens the one with mods in it… because I searched and didn’t find anyone else asking this question.. so yeah if anyone knows about that please :) thx



  • @Hulo You don't need two shortcuts for two copies of GTAV, just rename or remove dinput8.dll when you want to play online and do the reverse when you want to play SP.



  • @Hulo Just to add to what @WGotch07 , yes you can have 2 shortcuts but to launch just one copy of the game, either SP or GTAO.

    What you need to do is write a batch file that renames dinput8.dll to dinput8.bak for example and then starts steam - and steam will start without the ability to run mods for GTA5.

    Then you write a second batch file, call it GTAO, which renames dinput8.bak to dinput8.dll and then this will start steam with the ability for GTA5 to run mods.

    Or you could do it with just one batch file that toggles dinput8 back and forth but that would be confusing unless you echo "Ready for Online" and "Ready for SP".

    If you have the steam appid, you can launch a game as well but don't think it would work with GTA5 given you need to manually select SP or online - but there might be a way.



  • @JohnFromGWN @WGotch07 nice, thank you both for your help!
