Will copying 3 copies work just fine in different folders? Or is there any other easier way to make 3 copies and run them directly?
Or just any f#$king way to have 3 seperate game modes

No, you have to change the name of one of them to be the correct name, every time you play.
So if you install the original game to a folder called GTAV, only one folder can be called that at a time, and it has to be called that to work... unless you start modifying registry entries that is.
So if you have GTAV - Online, GTAV - Mods & GTAV - LSPDFR, and you wanted to play with mods, you would rename that folder to just GTAV. Then if you wanted to play onine, you would rename GTAV back to GTAV - Mods and then rename GTAV - Online to just GTAV.
Also, all three copies must be on the same hard drive and be in the same parent folder. So if you hare the Steam version, they would all have to be in the Steam\steamapps\common folder.
@LeeC2202 that really helped me alot thanks
@kukupie You're welcome.
@LeeC2202 btw can we creat 3 different bats which will rename the folder and lauch the game and then revert it back later
If possible can you tell me how
@kukupie You can but it would be complicated with three folders. I have it working with two, three would be tricky.
@LeeC2202 Not really, copying the whole Folder:
Rockstar Games\ GTA V to
Normal GTA directory "GTA mods"
Normal GTA directory "GTA lspdfr "
Which will require a lot of disk space, or simply changing drive for one or more folder work.
On desktop i have done it like that and 100% work:
Normal GTA directory + K:\GAMES\GTA MODS
Normal GTA directory + Normal GTA directory (folder name edited)
@baba0rum I can't wok out what your post is referring to.
We have already worked out that having three folders will work, the remaining question was about how to create three .bat files that check for the existing folder names and renames them accordingly to ensure only one is correctly named at a time.
You cannot have the folders on different drives, it simply won't work with a properly installed game. The registry can only point to a single game location, unless you modify registry entries. So the drive and parent folder must be the same for each one of the 3 folders.
Even having a Retail game and a Steam game won't work, because it will detect an existing Social Club installation and will still only let you have a single registry entry for the game.
@LeeC2202 Oh yeah using a .bat i dont know how then
@kukupie Okay... I think I have this now.
Your folders need to be named as follows, or you can change the name in the bat files to names that match your folder names:
Grand Theft Auto V
Grand Theft Auto V - LSPDFR
Grand Theft Auto V - Mods
You then need 3 batch files as follows:
Play GTAV Online.bat
IF NOT EXIST "Grand Theft Auto V - Online" GOTO end IF NOT EXIST "Grand Theft Auto V - LSPDFR" GOTO lspdfr REN "Grand Theft Auto V" "Grand Theft Auto V - Mods" REN "Grand Theft Auto V - Online" "Grand Theft Auto V" GOTO end :lspdfr REN "Grand Theft Auto V" "Grand Theft Auto V - LSPDFR" REN "Grand Theft Auto V - Online" "Grand Theft Auto V" :end cd "Grand Theft Auto V" GTAVLauncher.exe exit
Play GTAV - Mods.bat
IF NOT EXIST "Grand Theft Auto V - Mods" GOTO end IF NOT EXIST "Grand Theft Auto V - LSPDFR" GOTO lspdfr REN "Grand Theft Auto V" "Grand Theft Auto V - Online" REN "Grand Theft Auto V - Mods" "Grand Theft Auto V" GOTO end :lspdfr REN "Grand Theft Auto V" "Grand Theft Auto V - LSPDFR" REN "Grand Theft Auto V - Mods" "Grand Theft Auto V" :end cd "Grand Theft Auto V" GTAVLauncher.exe exit
And finally, Play GTAV - LSPDFR.bat
IF NOT EXIST "Grand Theft Auto V - LSPDFR" GOTO end IF NOT EXIST "Grand Theft Auto V - Online" GOTO online REN "Grand Theft Auto V" "Grand Theft Auto V - Mods" REN "Grand Theft Auto V - LSPDFR" "Grand Theft Auto V" GOTO end :online REN "Grand Theft Auto V" "Grand Theft Auto V - Online" REN "Grand Theft Auto V - LSPDFR" "Grand Theft Auto V" :end cd "Grand Theft Auto V" GTAVLauncher.exe exit
Once you have the .bat files in the parent folder, you can create three shortcuts to them and have them (the shortcuts) anywhere.
If you want to test this to be certain it works, make a test folder on your desktop, create the three folders as I mentioned and just add ECHO in front of the cd "Grand Theft Auto V" and GTAVLauncher.exe lines in each bat file.
It seemed to work fine for me, but test it yourself to make sure you are happy that it works as you expect.
@LeeC2202 thanks alot buddy for taking your time to help me
Really appriciate you
Can't you just use a Mod Manager? Mine allows me to select: mods, no mods (online), RPH for LSPDFR.
@GreenAid I had only seen one that had 2 options, which is why I didn't suggest one.
I have just tried to search for more but trying to search for something with "mod" in the name on this site is hard work. I also can't find the one I saw the other day either... have you got a link to one that does more, it would be useful to know the name in case anyone asks in future.
Edit: This was the one I had seen, just has the 2 options though https://www.gta5-mods.com/tools/gta-v-modded-launcher-gsys-xenon
I like it because it's simple and fast to use. This requires mods folder to work properly I think (but who in his sane mind doesn't use it?)
As you can see you can choose between Online/Offline (online being all scripts disabled), RPH loaded, and also manual disabling of scripts if wanted.
@GreenAid That only seems to allow offline and online mode. How does that work if you want two offline modes and one online mode?
What do you mean 2nd offline mode?
@GreenAid The OP wants two offline folders and one online folder.
Umm well I assumed he implied a folder for RPH, but that's an option you can tick after you select Offline mode.
I mean, that tool saves you the trouble to have multiple folders
@GreenAid I've honestly never used one of those... all I basically did was to provide the solution that the OP asked for.
Maybe that mod manager is something the OP might want to consider though, so it was definitely worth having another option on the table... so thanks for the link.
The topic gave me a chance to play with .bat files again though... I don't get to do that very often.
@LeeC2202 No problem
