GRAND THEFT AUTO ONLINE - PC - BANNING ISSUE
MAY 04, 2017 10:02 AM
Greetings I am N8Gamez Author of GTAV RE-Sized Mod.
I have gone through the files to re-size the massive textures which resulted in less stuttering players with LOW end rigs can not only play the game decently but can up their graphical settings to enjoy more of the lush rich environment that was previous to my Mod unattainable to Low End Rigs.
Being an avid GTA Junkie since 1999 I have been forced to upgrade my computer with each release in order to enjoy the games, ( since GTAIII ).
Originally when GTA V released I only had an old Asus k-53 with 512 shared mb video memory. I began my project and was amazed in seeing GTA V playable on this weak LOW END laptop. I continued with the project which has helped thousands to finally be able to enjoy the game smooth like butter, with more effects and graphical enjoyment.
The only thing this mod does is to RE-Size the 2046 and 4098 images down to a reasonable 512 or 1024. Doing so released much memory and enabled the CPU/GPU to pass the images smoothly with out micro or macro stutter.
Even on my Asus G-751 with 24gb memory and 4 gb video memory I felt stuttering. Once installed people are able to enjoy the way the developers meant for them to, I feel and many many others too.
The only thing this mod does is reduce the image sizes nothing more. No cheats just an ability to even the playing field for so many who do not have badboy computers.
There is concern that this mod when used online may get people banned.
I pray that for the sake of the entire GTA Community that you will consider allowing GTAV RE-
Sized for online game play. There is nothing worse than playing against people who have incredible amounts of mem and vram when your rig is sputtering due to these massive image sizes bottlenecking their computers resulting in them being killed a lot due to slowed response caused by the bottlenecking.
Candy wrappers, sign posts, billboard posts do not need to be such high textures as you mostly pass them at high speed. Reducing these and others like the 2048 faces and watches on peds allows for the images to load much quicker and smoother causing no bottlenecking at CPU/GPU.
I ask for serious consideration of the allowance of my Mod to be allowed for online as it does not create any unfair advantage but can allow for a more even playing field for the very many people who have LOW END RIGS.
With thousands of downloads and many praises from people who were suffering in trying to play GTA V now excited to see more graphical effects and smoother gaming I am compelled to beg of Rockstars acceptance in allowing people to use this mod without the fear of being banned.
Please seriously, if you are unable to approve this at least send it along to someone who can so they can make the proper decision.
If nothing else download the mod and see the effects it creates and consider releasing a version yourselves. I won't be offended in the slightest as I am an avid GTA Junkie who wants to enjoy the fullest of the GTA Series games and wants the same for the rest of my community.
A popular site for My Mod is:
My dev site has a lot of comments and the history of what has been done in creating my Mod. It can be seen here:
Please at least look at the page and see some of the comments and see how ecited people are to finally be able to enjoy GTA V smoothly and with a slight increase of FPS.
PLEASE AT LEAST LOOK AND SEE HOW MANY ARE USING IT FROM THE gta5mods.com site,
There are many other sites that carry our mod as well as a torrent which I can not track the downloads of; and which many are downloading from as it is faster than the Mega account.
There is a massive community following, ( and in the case of GTA V), LEADING the way to more exciting game play.
We, the community, have encouraged Rockstar along. Please let us be encouraged by Rockstar.
Cool that files weights just 7.5 gb.
I will post my impressions later.
Ok, so the quality loss is noticiable, but not critical. As for fps, may be I expected more. The average fps may be better, but when driving in car fps looks almost like without this mod. So, I would stick to better graphics by sacrifise some fps improvement by this mod.
But anyway thank you guys for this, I always respect projects like that ))
I am curious if aftet installing you upped your settings, as that is where the magic becomes evident.
