Game randomly crashes with mods please helpppp

  • Hi, so when driving around my game will randomly crash. I have a few scripts and add on cars installed and i have also added a new gameconfig, pack file limit adjuster, heap adjuster and heap limit adjuster (and ofc script hook v and the dot net version). My game is installed on my HDD. I dont know what is causing this my specs will be down below please help...

    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600k CPU @ 3.50GHz
    RAM: 16.0 GB
    Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680
    Motherboard: Asus P8P67 Pro
    SSD (Solid State Drive): Samsung SSD 850 EVO 250GB

    Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10, 64-bit

    DM if you need more information...

  • @xaaifz you mention 2 heap mods? You should only need one. Your issue could be caused by a single mod or mod conflicts or the wrong gameconfig for your particular system.

    I'll suggest you start with a verify integrity to rule out corrupt vanilla game files.
    Next, rename dinput8.dll temporarily to prevent all mods from loading and run your game without mods to see if it can be played without crashing.

    The next step would be to temporarily disable your addons only by again temporarily renaming your mods folder. If you now crash its due to something in your installation folder or scripts folder.

    You can continue like this until you identify the culprit or culprits.

    You can also experiment, before or after the suggestions above, by changing your gameconfig. It solved my game crashing after the tuner update.

  • @JohnFromGWN thanks bro replying to what u mentioned about using 2 heap adjusters ives tried using one at a time but no difference and i think it does have something to do with my mods but im not sure how to find out which mod or script

  • @xaaifz rename your mods folder, don't touch dlclist.xml, and see if you can play.

  • ok thanks for all the help bro i really appreciate it

  • @JohnFromGWN yeah its something in the mods folder idk what or how to find out

  • @xaaifz If your game was working with mods before, then it is likely one of the last mods you installed. So start rename the last mod, or the last few mods and see if game will run. It is more likely that the mod crashing the system is a large map or any large mod. Also check your dlclist.xml for errors.

  • @JohnFromGWN its been crashing for a while now so i have no clue what mods to look at and im no expert at this, is there anyway i could send u my mods folder or my dlclist.xml to check out or is there another way that can help?

  • @xaaifz You can copy and paste your dlclist.xml here or on pastebin. With respect to your mods folder, what non-vehicle mods do you have installed. If you have the proper gameconfig, and I hope you tried more than one, it is unlikely a vehicle will crash your game.

  • @JohnFromGWN yh i have tried diff game configs and other mods i have installed in my mods folder are clothing items which were recently added after crashing started ermm i also have a few house mods like designer penthouse, beach mansion, modern house and maybe a few more im not quite good at remembering what mods i have but here is my dlclist its in a google drive down below -


  • @xaaifz i looked at your dlclist.xml and don't see any obvious errors, i did notice the duplicate entries, why have EMF several times?

    Unfortunately you will need to do this by trial and error. Start by the maps, they are the most likely suspects, just rename the folder, don't touch dlclist.xml.

    For example rename all your maps and see if it eliminates your problem. If it is a map, then restore half of them. Idea is to isolate issue to one grouping then split it in half and try again.

  • @JohnFromGWN the several entries must be a glitch or something. I dont know what or how to do what ur suggesting, ill just quit gta 5 thanks for all ur help brother

  • @JohnFromGWN before i make my decision to quit gta 5, is it possible i could send u my mods folder to take a look at?

  • @xaaifz Not sure what you mean by send you your mods folder, you mean a list or a picture. Sure you can do that, but I would not be able to identify any possible conflicts because I only have vehicles and peds, none of which conflict. But yeah, send it. Maybe another forum member can pickout the offending mod or mods.

    And keep in mind that this is not a GTA5 problem caused by the game.
    All the issues reported here were caused by the user trying to mod the game, that includes me too. If you go step by step and follow instructions you can fix any problem whatsoever except when a mod is known to be outdated or just plain crap. You can easily tell which mods are broken by going on the mod page and reading the angry comments. Similarly, any mod conflict can be identified going step by step as I suggested. If you won't take the time to do this, you are very likely SOL.

    Not all mod conflicts can be resolved without making a choice - in other words you may have to choose one mod over another if they can't play nice together.

  • @xaaifz You don't need to do that. You just need to send a screenshot of you dlcpacks. You also need a screenshot of your scripts folder and a screenshot of your installation folder. Also, which gameconfig and heapadjuster (just one is needed) are you using, send names or links.

    But....make sure the screenshots are legible. If necessary, take more than 1 screenshot per folder to get the right size.

    For example, this is my scripts folder. From it I could tell if there were possible conflicts.

  • @JohnFromGWN all vids in this drive - https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1JunMlBZtgZE8GkKjhpK9nks08OAhm7Bg?usp=sharing
    I use the latest version of gameconfig (2372.2) with the 0,5 traffic x 0,5 peds

  • @xaaifz Ok, I watched the videos and I have bad news.

    Your setup is a recipe for disaster. I don't care if you have 2000 mods in your dlcpacks, my concern is with your scripts folder and with your installation folder.

    Let's put this in perspective.

    I have 7 files in my scripts folder which I find high but I need 3 of them for scripts that I write, 2 are my own menus, and 2 I'm not even sure I still need. So 7 script files, you have 59 including even lua plugins.

    In my root folder I have 70 files which include obviously all the game files. But I only have a handful of mods in the root: my trainer, SHV, SHVDN, asi loader, and a few more. You have 122, so an additional 52 mods just in your root folder.

    The potential for mod conflicts, outdated mods, etc is huge. Unless someone here with a great eye and much more experience with specific mods than I do can pick out issues, I can only go back to my original recommendation. Start disabling mods until you have a stable system. Then slowing enable mods one by one, checking for stability each time.

  • @JohnFromGWN is it caused by something in the root folder of gta?

  • @xaaifz of course thats possible. You can't just rename asi files so temporarily move all non essential files, excluding openiv, trainer, SH, etc, and test.
