Unwanted constant updates every time I start game, any help ?

Recommended Posts

Official General

I had to recently reinstall my disc copy of V on my PC because the last update broke my mods.

 

Since then it's been working fine, but every time I start up my game it always has to do this automatic update which seems is annoying as it takes up to 5 minutes or a little more. I thought I blocked the updates on my antivirus firewall settings but it still does it for some reason. The strange, but good thing is, the game loads and plays fine, and my mods are still there and working. But I just want the constant updating to stop.

 

Anyone else experienced this ? And does anyone have a solution. I'm grateful to all who take time to respond.

You can startup in offline mode with a command line switch. Eventually you'll have to sign back in and update though. Welcome to DRM.

Make a shortcut to GTAVLauncher.exe
in target, put this:
"E:\Grand Theft Auto V\GTAVLauncher.exe" -scOfflineOnly

Of course, that's my install directory. Yours will be different.

But my game shouldn't be updating every time I start it up though. That's not normal right ? It's updated like 3 times today when I started it up 3 times !

Well, did you download it on Steam?

 

Edit: nvm. Im dumb and forgot you said disc copy. Not sure why it would be updating every time. Regardless, just use scofflineonly.

I tried that and it said I have to connect online to play the game

You have to connect once every few days. Between that time, you can play offline. Of course this doesn't work out very well if you're, say, stationed at a military base without internet (Or their internet blocks GTA). Thank R* for that one...
