Developer Rockstar has released a new update for GTA V, in order fix performance issues introduced with update 1.28. According to Rockstar, this update will deal with these issues and make GTA V run smoother., both online and offline.
Since update 1.28 rolled-out, users linked performance issues to Rockstar’s anti-modding measures, which apparently introduced some junk code in the game.
Rockstar also addressed this link-up and said that mods are not authorized in GTA Online and title updates may cause the game to behave unexpectedly. However, feel free to use mods in singleplayer.
“We also received some reports linking decreased performance when using Story Mode mods to TU 1.28. As mentioned previously, we are not actively targeting players using mods in Story Mode, nor are we explicitly implementing protections against them in-game.
Our primary focus is on protecting GTA Online against modifications that could give players an unfair advantage, disrupt gameplay, or cause griefing. However, as a reminder, mods are still unauthorized and as such, Title Updates may cause Story Mode mods to behave in unexpected ways because they are not supported or tested, and players run them at their own risk.”
This statement means that players are allowed to use mods in single-player, but the game may end-up facing performance issues after future updates.
After installing the new update, players should notice better frame-rates in GTA V.
