To further clarify, when I swap the handling file from that link into ANY of the files in the main installation directory, my game immediately starts to update and remove the mods (when launches from Social Club launcher). If I try to launch from FiveM, it gives me an error and crashes. The game ONLY launches when the mods are placed in the "mods" folder. But they mods don't work then. I'm kind of at a loss. I only wanted to improve the game experience by giving the cars a higher top speed, but nothing seems to be working. If anyone can chime in or let me know if I did something wrong, it would be greatly appreciated.

RE: GTA crashes on launch with "mods" folder
GTA crashes on launch with "mods" folder
I'm having trouble launching the game with the "mods" folder in my installation directory. I am by NO MEANS a professional modder, so there may be some crucial steps I've missed here.
I'm running the latest version of GTA 5 (yesterday's casino update), and it is the Social Club version, not the Steam version.
I have had luck in the past using graphics mods installed via OpenIV. After the update, my game was having some issues with crashes so I did a fresh install and it worked fine. That is until I downloaded this mod: https://www.gta5-mods.com/vehicles/realistic-top-speed-for-gta-v
I followed the instructions thoroughly, and copied all of the correct folders and .rpf files to the "mods" folder. The directories are the exact same as they were in the main installation folder, except instead of C:/Program Files/Rockstar Games/GTA V/update it is C:/Program Files/Rockstar Games/GTA V/mods/update etc.
The only file I modified is the handling file. I can confirm the the game will launch fine if I move the mods folder somewhere else. When the folder is in the install directory, it crashes every time.
I can get the game to run with the mods installed using FiveM Singleplayer, but the actual mod itself isn't working.
If the installation instructions on that handling mod page are correct, I have followed the correct steps in installation. I've tried changing the shortcut target for the launcher by adding "-scOfflinePlay" at the end, which allows me to play offline, but still won't launch my game. Does anyone have a clue as to why this is? I can include any other info you need.
Thanks for your help.
