Rockstar has resolved the framerate problems plaguing Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online on PC, since the release of update 1.28.
Rockstar stated on their support website, that the performance drop in framerate on PC has been resolved, however the fixes may cause problems for those who are playing Grand Theft Auto V’s story mode using mods.
“We also received some reports linking decreased performance when using Story Mode mods to TU 1.28. As mentioned previously, we are not actively targeting players using mods in Story Mode, nor are we explicitly implementing protections against them in-game.”- Rockstar
While Rockstar are constantly reassuring players that they do not want to stop them from using mods in the story mode, it’s quite the opposite when it comes to Grand Theft Auto Online.
“Our primary focus is on protecting GTA Online against modifications that could give players an unfair advantage, disrupt gameplay, or cause griefing. However, as a reminder, mods are still unauthorized and as such, Title Updates may cause Story Mode mods to behave in unexpected ways because they are not supported or tested, and players run them at their own risk.”- Rockstar
Sounds fair enough to me. Anyone who has played in an online mutliplayer game before with someone using mods, glitches or hacks to have an unfair advantage knows how boring it is to play in these kinds of matches.
The Grand Theft Auto V title update 1.28 brought a whole host of new content to the game, as well as the usual background fixes players have come to expect from patches. Five new vehicles were added to the ‘Legendary Motorsport’ for story mode and Grand Theft Auto Online, and hundreds of new clothing items allow for a whole host of customisation options for your very own character.
