  • Hey new to modding just looking to install a simple reskin (Louis Vuitton Bag) for the MP heist bag. I have everything installed and added the files. But it wont appear in game. Can anyone help me?

  • @westcoastsosa Go into OpenIV, hit Control + F3 and do a search for the filename you have added/modified. Make sure you have replaced the file in the latest version of the files, otherwise the newer versions of those files will be used by the game.

  • @LeeC2202 Ok so there are 28 files with the same name and extenstion all in different dlc folders. do I replace the texure files in every folder?

  • @westcoastsosa What's the name of the file?

  • @LeeC2202 there are 4 files.

    1. hand_diff_004_a_uni.ytd
    2. hand_diff_005_a_uni.ytd
    3. hand_diff_006_a_uni.ytd
    4. hand_diff_007_a_uni.ytd

  • @westcoastsosa I would be tempted to start with the mpbiker location as I believe that is the newest version of those files.

    So copy the mpbiker folder from Grand Theft Auto V\update\x64\dlcpacks\ into mods\update\x64\dlcpacks\ and then add the files into the mods version of the folder with OpenIV

    The actual path will be something like Grand Theft Auto V\mods\update\x64\dlcpacks\mpbiker\dlc.rpf\x64\models\cdimages\mpbiker_female.rpf\mp_f_freemode_01_mp_f_bikerdlc_01\

  • @LeeC2202 I figured the path would be similar to the mpheist folder. So I added the files to mpbiker and restarted GTA but the bag is still black.

  • @westcoastsosa It could be the mpheists folder, it's just that with vehicles you usually opt for the latest versions... anything to do with the multi-player peds could be slightly different.

    Ah... I have just noticed, even though the files are the same name, hand_diff_004_a_uni.ytd in mpheists and mpbikers seems to have slightly different textures.

    Try it in mpheists and if that works, delete the mpbiker folder from your mods folder. Texture modding in this game is a real minefiled.

  • I have the whole update folder in my mods folder so still delete the mpbiker? And the mpheist folder was the one I tried first it was instructed on with the download. But maybe I should delete the mpheist and load with the mpbiker? because I didn't delete the first one before adding the files to another folder.

  • @westcoastsosa Can you give me a link to the mod so I can have a better look at what it contains please? It's hard working diagnosing texture mods blind, so if I can see what I am dealing with, I might have a better chance of seeing where they go.

  • @LeeC2202 Sure thing, wasn't sure if linking was allowed. https://www.gta5-mods.com/player/louis-vuitton-bag

  • @westcoastsosa Linking's fine, especially when it's on this site.

    Just give me a few minutes as I'm just making some code changes in one of my mods at the same time.

  • @LeeC2202 No problem man. Thanks for the help

  • @westcoastsosa Okay, the textures definitely match those in mpheist and looking at the mod description, they need to go in both male and female, although I presume that if you're only playing mp as one or the other, you can just do one. I guess doing both covers all the options.

    So if it was me, I would be adding those to the mpheist folder in your mods folder, in both the male and female and giving that a go.

    Just beware of playing online with these mods installed. I have no idea if there would be a problem as I have never played the online mode but any modifications could result in a potential ban.

    Edit: I know this might sound a stupid question but the path to those folders in your mods folder is correct isn't it? mods\update\x64\dlcpacks\mpheist

  • @LeeC2202 I'm aware about modding online. I can always remove the mod as well right? But again adding the files and restarting doesn't change the bag unfortunately

  • @westcoastsosa Do you have any other texture mods installed that do work?

  • @LeeC2202 no this is the first mod i'm trying to install

  • @westcoastsosa Okay, so then I am going to have to ask what might seem like obvious questions but I have to know exactly what condition your install is in.

    1. Do you have ScriptHookV installed in your main GTAV folder? That's scripthookv.dll and dinput8.dll from here http://www.dev-c.com/gtav/scripthookv/
    2. Do you have OpenIV.asi installed in your main gtav folder.
    3. If the answer is yes to those, do you also have a scripthookv.log, an asiloader.log and an openiv.log in your main GTAV folder? (the last one could also be called openiv.txt)

    I'll stop there just for now as my next questions will depend on those answers.

  • @LeeC2202 yes I have all of those in the GTA V folder. For 3 I don't see any logs or .txt files

  • @westcoastsosa If you have file extensions hidden, they might just appear as text files called scripthookv, asiloader and openiv and they are the logs for ScriptHookV.dll, dinput8.dll and OpenIV.asi respectively.

    If you don't have any of those log files, that means that those are not working, which might be why your textures are not loading.

  • @LeeC2202 Double checked I do not have the log files.

  • @westcoastsosa Okay, this is going to get complicated then... what operating system are you using, not Windows 10 by any chance?

  • @LeeC2202 windows 8.1 on imac if it makes a difference

  • @westcoastsosa It's just that there had been reported problems of Windows 10 blocking some dll files, so that was a possible cause. I don't know anything about Windows 8.1 to know if the same problem happens there. Apparently the solution was to right -click the dll and in Win10, there was an unblock option.

    I am struggling for solutions here though... for some modding requirements, like for script mods, you need to have .Net Framework 4.5.2 installed and a Visual C++ Redist package (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40784) but I don't see any mention of that for ScriptHookV or OpenIV.

    I honestly have no idea whether it being on iMac is a problem. If you can post a screenshot of your main folder, that might help... but it's a bit of a straw I'm clutching at. I've never encountered a problem where nothing will run at all. :(
