A tiny new update patch has been released for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5 that fixes the framerate issues.
When update patch 1.28 was released for Grand Theft Auto 5 a couple days ago, PC owners of the game noticed they had been experiencing a lower framerate. It appears this issue has been fixed.
The Rockstar support page announced:
“This issue has now been resolved with a Title Update. Please make sure you are connected to the Internet at boot to download and install the update.”
They also took the time to talk about mods being used in Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC and left the following statement.
“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. 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.”
