Suggested to use 48 kHz 16-bit signed WAV files (normal format and bitrate of the in-game radio) instead of MP3 files to avoid this issue.[16][17]

See Rockstar's list of available command line entries.


Used to install mods that are packaged in .oiv format.
Required for mods which expect the user to package their contents into a format usable by the game.
The game requires the dinput8.dll ASI Loader file and the OpenIV.asi OpenIV plugin to allow loading of ASI mods and modified RPF files as their signature is removed when editing them.[29] These modifications won't allow the game to boot into Online, so dinput8.dll must be removed to play Online. This will not remove any of the mods - merely the ASI Loader.
Modifying files outside the mods directory used by OpenIV will force the user to use OpenIV.asi to run the game all the time.


Mods are safe to use in story mode, however, the games' anti-tamper solution will detect them and prohibit online-play until they are uninstalled (applies to all mods).[30]
Script Hook may be a prerequisite for some mods.
