Installing New SH5
Scroll down to last post in thread above.
There is no guarantee that your game will load nor that it will run properly after the SH5 update.
SH5 only allows you to play mods. It doesn't fix mods, it doesn't ensure your gameconfig is still right for the new update.
I knew my game would be broken because I had manually added the new DLC and it broke my game. So I removed it.
As I expected, the game also broke with the new SH5 update - because SH5 doesn't fix mods. Exactly the same thing happened to me with Los Santos Tuner Update until I got a new gameconfig (an updated one).
So, for those having issues like crashes or hanging, you have some options:
- Revert back
- Wait for an updated gameconfig or tweak your current one
- If you want the new vehicles with the reverted/previous version of the game, just convert them to addons and add them to dlclist.xml as usual.
- You could update and then rename the new dlc so it doesn't load (no need to edit either dlclist.xml, it will just ignore).
Not everyone will have issues and I'm not sure what causes them, but be patient and all will be good.
I'm reverting back myself as I have no interest in DLC content, however I do like to keep my game updated - so no urgency.
AND REMEMBER TO BACKUP YOUR .EXE FILES AND KEEP A BACKUP OF OLD SH5 FILES TOO!
