Can someone tell me why I view the game this way? it had never happened to me before...
the file dinput8.dll is used exclusively to make your mods work so if you remove it the game will work without them.
if I understand your problem is that the game crashes halfway through loading before accessing the game. to solve this problem you have to open OpenV, click on Edit Mode, open your mod folder and you will see a green strip at the top of the panel. clicking on it will update your mod folder, this thing you have to do it every time a new version of gta comes out.
@xrb936 I think you answered yourself
