Hi,

My  question is , if i have the game without crack and i want to activate it, then will it download the whole game again or it will just activate the game. I was planning to buy the game in steam sale but i have this confusion and also i don't have enough data to download the whole game or to update .

Yes, in theory Steam should find the game's files and just check them, in theory the MD5s Hashes should be the same. If your copy is missing some files or isn't up-to-date, Steam will download the necessary files for letting you run the game on the latest version.

No, Only the Social Club version of the game can have files switched out as the Steam Version check for auth files when loading to make sure you have the correct permission to load and play the game by auth I mean it will check to see if your Steam Account is linked to a social club account and if it is the game will load and if it isn't it will ask you to log into your social club account and if the account isn't linked it will then ask for the activation code.

 

Only GTA V codes activated on steam will be allowed to be launched via steam.
