GTA5 911 Help and Checklist - What to do when Mods make you Mad
Also added new topic:
GTA5 Error Codes
When GTA5 crashes, and it will, you may or may not get an error message, possibly with an error code. These codes aren't often useful and often the advice from Rockstar is to reboot the game.
Error codes, in different languages, can be found at:
Grand Theft Auto V\update\x64\data\errorcodes
You can also consult the websites below:
Again, error messages aren't always accurate but links above could help.
@JohnFromGWN Regarding the OpenIV and update.rpf danger at; https://forums.gta5-mods.com/topic/35789/gta5-911-help-and-checklist-what-to-do-when-mods-make-you-mad/25
If you want OpenIV to shut the hell up, you can take the version.txt from update\update.rpf\common\data and drop it in the same location of your modded update.rpf . Pretty annoying message though but luckily easy to silence the imbecile
Thanks that's an excellent tip! I wonder if scripthookv uses a file for the GTA5.EXE version? Because we don't know if a new version of SH5 is always warranted after each update, we do know native functions are updated but the rest is really a black box. In passing, I just delete version.txt from the game version. That works too.
@JohnFromGWN I'm honestly have no idea about that I have very very limited knowledge about natives and scripts One time I was tried editing a mod's .dll file with dnSpy to remove a sentece since it was keep popping up when I want to take screenshot, and the game instantly crashed
