GTA V New Patch Fixes Ambient Occlusion but Breaks Modding Tool Compatibility

By   /   Apr 30, 2015

Hype around Rockstars immensely successful Grand Theft Auto V seems to have remerged ever since the game came out for the PC, but like most ports it is still not a title without bugs and issues.

In order to address these minor problems, Rockstar has released a new patch for the PC version of GTA V.

PC users are reporting that it has fixed the buggy Ambient Occlusion effect in the game. Moreover, there are also suggestions that this update has broken the game’s compatibility with Script Hook. Whether this is intentional or not by Rockstar is currently unknown, although it is not included in the changelog.

For those who don’t know, Script Hook is an ASI plugin for GTA V which allows users to write commands and scripts in any .Net language. It’s a useful tool for the modding community, but hopefully there is a workaround soon for those who use it.

Below is the complete changelog for the update:

  • Vehicles in garage no longer accidentally replaced with vehicles from the street.

  • Improved stability and fixed several crashes and hangs while transitioning between Jobs in GTA Online.

  • Fixed an issue where certain players were unable to exit their garages while inside of a personal vehicle.

  • Fixed an issue where the game could freeze if you were robbing a store while someone else was attempting to buy snacks there.

  • A rare issue has been fixed where some players received a “Purchase Failed” error when attempting to buy apartments.

  • Fixed an issue where players would be asked to quit the game while using text chat in Golf and pressing the “E” key.

  • GTA Online characters can now be added to your shortlist in the Rockstar Editor.

  • Fixed several clipping issues that occurred when taking Snapmatic selfies.

  • One-on-One Vehicle Deathmatches in Free Roam will now properly spawn all participants in vehicles.

  • Fixed a Steam-only issue where you could not alt-tab back into GTAV if you alt-tabbed out while the Steam overlay was active.

  • Various fixes to bring improved patch download speeds.

  • Improvements to matchmaking so players that have good connections to each other are matched together more frequently.

  • Fixed a Steam-only issue where players could not use Mexican Spanish as a subtitle language.

  • General stability fixes for director mode and video editor.

  • Various crash fixes.

  • Fixes for issues caused by launching the game in offline mode.
