V reinstall


Recommended Posts


So against better judgement and three years of V not being present on my drive, giving up on reinstalling V twice since then,  today I am installing it - to check few things ...Atm in the third + hour of the installation - it better be a space ship quality with all this time it is taking.


Aaand after those damn 5gb forced initial download V loaded up, and I changed few graphic options so restart was required and behold - another 14.8 GB started to download.


(i do not see image insert on new forum layout \OO/)


Besides these extra 20 GB on top of my boxed game, Social Club is using google captcha during the logon and that is just great 🤨and that is why it is a good thing😀


So I ask, in case I do not uninstall V again - and not wanting to get a "community version" from internet friends either -  do we have any means to force V to never connect online again for any reasons?  So I can firewall it off from the internet for good. Offline only - and mayhaps a mod or two for my pleasure is what I'm interested in.

Two different ways of doing that, one is through launch options and the other is through firewall rules; these are just for the social club launcher but I'm pretty sure that's what needs blocking.

Launch options one seems to be more suited to my needs, tyvm Red. Damn thing downloaded another 980 or so mbs after 14.8gbs or so was done 😫
