(Sigh) For the life of me can someone….anyone please tell me if there is a better way to fix the age old problem with R$ shitty Launcher. As of two days ago (of which there may have been a R$ Launcher update?) I can’t even start the game……
Just for clarity I have tried
-making R$ Launcher Administrative priveledges
-Re-installed the Launcher
-Renamed the Social Club folder
-delete the SC folder
-Start GTA V from Steam (has never worked since I’ve installed the game)
-re-install the game
What USED to happen was I start the R$L “Play from Steam” it would pop up that Steam is doing some shit (essentially thinking) take some ~15 secs then start it’s boot process (R$ splash screens etc.)
Then after the last re-install (#4 ~ 2 mos ago) the R$L would launch then Steam then go to the ReDirector Launcher (to which I would then End Task on the active GTA V in Task Manager) and then re-press “Play from Steam” again and it would start
NOW I get no Steam pop up despite there being the usual collection of steam parts running in TM, it says GTA is one of the active tasks in TM but nothing else happens. I could spend all night ending the GTA V task then pressing “Play from Steam” again and still nothing.
I am sick of this BS. I have NEVER played GTA online. NEVER. This #*)#% Launcher is the curse that we must all bear but it’s soooo stupid how a game from 2013 has all this just to start the goddamn process. I have reached out before to R$ bs “tech support” about the start process 2 mos ago to which they spent a WEEK asking me about computer specs and various unrelated questions to which my specific directed question at the time to them was WHAT DOES THE GTA V re-director launcher REALLY DO (at that time it was a continual loop of R$L then RDL then error and no start). The never answered that……
In any case can someone, anyone please let me know if there is some current hack or trick in 2020 just to play the #*#)@Q% game…..
Thanks in advance
