Question

Heyo,

 

I just had the same issue, and tried a few things.

 

Here is how I fixed it:

I created a commandline.txt and put all my desired settings in it. I noticed, that the loading bug always happens, when you use more VRAM than you should.

 

In the first menu that comes up after the initial R* logos, you can change your Options and also change your graphics settings. At first I had "-availablevidmem 1" in my commandline.txt, so in the graphics settings it showed up as "Resource Usage: 1072 / 1 MB" in a red color... and the loading screen froze.

So I changed it to "-availablevidmem 2000" in my commandline.txt, and now it says "Resource Usage: 1072 / 2000 MB" in a green color... And now the loading doesn't freeze anymore and I can play!

 

 

So basically check this:

http://gtaforums.com/topic/397064-frequently-asked-questions/?do=findComment&comment=1058959070

Create the commandline.txt and put -availablevidmem 1500 or so in it. My Graphics Card has ~4000 MB VRAM, so I don't have to worry about it, but I wouldn't set the value to something higher than what your Card is capable of.

 

 

Hope this helps!
