Modded Folder for SP & Unmodded for MP

Recommended Posts

McIn Tyler

Is there a legit way to have one installation folder for MP and SP? I've been wanting for one to have mods and stuff on it, to where I can use car vehicle mods and have another folder installed just for Online uses without mods. I have Steam version.

Assuming you're using OpenIV for your mods, you can create a folder called "mods" (should show a purple coloured folder icon in OIV),

then you can put all your mods in there. Once you no longer need your mods, just rename the folder (e.g. "mod folder"), and when you're running GTAV all your mods will essentially stop working (as the folder is no longer being used).

For this to work, you'll need to install OpenIV.asi & ASI Loader (you can do this directly in OpenIV by clicking on the "ASI Manager" button - it's a white box with a blue tick in it). When you click on that, you should get this pop-up to install OIV.asi and ASI Loader.

So whenever that folder is coloured purple, your mods should load up in-game, whenever it's the normal colour, the folder isn't being used, so the contents of it (your mods), won't be loaded into the game.

You can download OpenIV from here, if you haven't got it already.

 

Alternatively, if you mean having 2 completely different folders, with two copies of the game, one for your mods and one for your base game, that is possible. It's a bit of faff to be honest, but I have tried it, and can confirm it does work if done correctly.

I won't explain how to do it, but there is a YouTube video which explains it, which you can watch

.

Hope this helps.
