How to remove mods from GTA V in order to play Online safely?

Question

Jackoboyo

Hello everyone,

 

With all of this news about the new update "Ill gotten gains" it's been making me excited to get to play online with new things that I can buy.

 

The problem is, I have a couple mods that are installed in my game which I only use in singleplayer and I've never touched Online on PC so far.

 

I was wondering if there is any procedure (other than locating the modded files and removing them from the GTA V files) that I should do to ensure that I am safe to play online and won't get banned from any modded files in my game?

 

Any help would be appreciated because I don't want to be banned for mods, when I had thought I removed all of them from my files.

 

Thanks :D

Use Bilago's Mod Manager to handle your mods. Install it - then stick all of your mod files into the Documents/GTAV Mods folder. When you play Single Player - it will "SymLink" the files from the Mod Folder in "My Documents" to your GTA V installation folder. When you quit the game - it will pull them from the folder and stick them back in the documents.

 

The process is almost reversed for Online - when you play Online it won't put any mods into the GTA V folder. It's almost like playing on the day you got the game.

This Mod Manager also does RPF Backups and Restores. When you set it up - point to the Backup .RPF file - then to a Modded RPF file that you will make. Like the Symlink method it will place it into your GTA V folder when you play Single Player but replace it with the Vanilla (Untouched) .RPF file when you go Online.

What kinds of mods have you installed? I'm really scared to go into online because I don't know if there's any files that I can't delete because they're more in depth in the files.

1. Where does the mod manager get installed? Could someone post a screen shot of how the folder set up should look for the "safest" preferred set up?

 

2.Also, if an idiot friend of mine installed a mod and it overrode the original game files, will this mod be able to correct that?

 

For example: Some moon gravity mod or force power mod makes all of the characters and vehicles fly around ( cutscenes included) and it has become very annoying. This started as soon as I downloaded the game and booted it.

 

Any solutions for this issue? Please let me know!
