This almost ruined my day, I have been working more then a week now with modding my game to get a game that is crash free with a bunch of mods. But I managed to revert back the forced update. I felt like I had to create an account just to post this for those in the same situation.
Here is how I reverted without any backups before for those who want to do the same, not sure if it will work for everyone but it worked for me with the rockstar launcher.
These are the files that needed to revert back:
Right click the files and choose properties, there is a tab "previous versions", atleast for me there was an older version from 19 december last year. Right click on that file and send it to documents. Now just replace the exported versions with the one in GTA root folder. Now you should have the old version of the game.
Then came the other issue, not being able to launch from the insanely stupid rockstar launcher. I found a mod online that bypass the launcher so you can launch the GTA5.exe launcher instead (not sure if I'm allowed to link it but its easy to find on google), and boom, my game works again with all the mods.
Hope this can help someone. From now on I will be sure to make backups of these files.
You and me both, I'm no expert but had been doing some work in Zmodeler past few nights and because i'm no expert it takes me a lot longer than it would some. Finished up about 11pm and had work at 6am, gets home and goes to test and..... update
I had used Bypasslauncher for years until the stupid rockstar launcher came in and couldn't figure the way around it. Many videos seem to refer to steam or epic games which mine is not, its the physically disk version. I wish they would have left the offline section alone and just do the changes to Online (something I have never used)
I do have a back up of the whole folder from 01.01.2021 and another from 2019. But again never found a way to make it work. There is so much out there when you search for it as its been a problem for a while now, any chance of a hint of what i should be looking to search for even if its not a link?
