Well, that was fun while it lasted. Rockstar vowed to keep the PC version of GTA V mod-free, and though I’m very skeptical they can hold the line for long, they’re sure going to try.
The latest patch for the game fixes a number of bugs and glitches, as well as a tendency for the game to freeze if a convenience store is robbed while your character is buying snacks. But the big news around the community is that a lot of mods they’ve been tinkering with no longer work. Script Hook V, a tool used for GTA V mods, has now been rendered unusable.
Of course, you can just not apply the patch, and goof around as a cat forever, but you would likely not be allowed online anymore. (Just copy-paste your GTA V file to another folder and have two versions; one for mods and the other updated for online play. Problem solved.)
Rockstar’s new solution will probably not stay permanent. The war between software creators and hackers never truly ends unless one of the sides ultimately gives up, and usually, it’s on the software side. They may have won this battle, but not the war…
Here are the patch notes for the latest update.
