GTA V gets the game location from the system before executing the game, requiring a registry change if the directory is not the one where the game was installed.
This little app helps to "bypass" that.
What this does
When you start the provided file from the location of the game, it searches for the common executables to ensure that the game is in there (GTA5.exe, GTAVLauncher.exe, and PlayGTAV.exe). Then if the files were found, it sets the actual location on the Registry and starts the game.
Download and Install
Grab the latest release from 5Mods.
Click the "GTAVPath.exe" file to download it and save it in the game dir.
If you found any bug just report it either on the Issues page on GitHub or leave a message on this thread.
I will also accept the Pull Requests made on the Repository.
