@Algonquin1234 Thanks, I thought it would be something like that because in most of the videos I'd seen ppl had some form of software, usually 7-zip or winRAR.
Seems to be all working now
Hi, I'm fairly new with GTA5 modding, but know a little bit about modding games in general.
I am running latest version on Epic Games, with script hook V, ENT, script hook.net, manual transmission mod and openiv (although haven't done much with it ).
Upon receiving GTA5 for free with Epic Games, I played around on it vanilla for a bit. Then decided to get the basic script hook trainer, ENT and s-hook.net as I saw it was the 'base' mod set for getting other mods to run or spawn in.
I then also played around with the features you get as standard with script hook and ENT but then decided to get some others from here (GTA5 mods).
This was kind of where my issues began.
I went to download a vehicle add-on mod that uses openiv (unfortunately I can't remember which one it was) but instead of downloading as a ZIP file like it said it should in the mod description, it downloaded as an RAR file.
This (which I have recently realised) had occurred a while back when I tried to mod just cause 3, and still happens with other GTA mods I downloaded now. I don't know whether it's my pc, or if downloading software like 7-zip would fix the issue, but I am rather confused and if anyone else has experienced this and/or knows how to fix it please let me know at your nearest convenience.
Hi. I wouldn't consider myself much of a pro at mods/modding, however I do know a little.
I received GTA V free through the EGS, and after playing around a little without mods, I consulted the Internet to have a look at modding it. This was when Script Hook hadn't been updated for EGS and had to use a workaround (openVhook).
I downloaded scripthook and ENT at first, and then after a bit more playing around I fancied getting some car and weapon mods for it.
This is where the issues began.
I went to download a car mod (idk what mod it was, it was an add-on rather than a model replacement) but instead of it downloading in a ZIP format (as it was supposed to) and instead downloaded in an RAR format. This was a re-occurring thing, as you can see by the following screenshot:
(I opened the screenshot in a paint/drawing software and zoomed in on the file. I downloaded another mod for sake of proof)
Yeah. Idk what an RAR file is, but it's not what the mod file should be. The pages that I downloaded them from said to use openIV to find the locations to put the files, and I could find these locations, but they also said that the file should be a ZIP. I may try using a software like 7-Zip and see if that does anything, but other than that I'm stumped.
Anyone else know anything?
