Install GTA 5 Redux
Before starting the next step, make sure you have 100% clean, un-modded files in your GTA 5 folder.
Files/folders to delete from the folder:
Create the folder
mods inside your GTA 5 main folder.
Copy and paste the folder
x64, and files
x64w.rpf, from the main GTA 5 directory, into the
Once the files have finished copying to the
mods folder, extract the contents of GTA5_REDUX_v1.2.1.zip to a temporary folder.
Run OpenIV and use the package Installer tool; Click on tools > Package Installer and locate the REDUX_INSTALLER_V1.2.1.oiv file from the extracted GTA5 Redux download.
Click Install, then choose the option to install the mod inside the created
Note: If you’re choosing to install inside the Game folder, which only works on steam version of the game without a mods folder, to save space, keep in mind that your original files will be altered and you have to re-download these files (~30Gb) if you ever wish to play online or alter it in any way. This isn’t intended by us and will not be supported.
If you receive a message stating that the installer has failed, attempt to run the installer again. If it fails a second time, please ensure you have properly set up the
Do not close the installer during installation, please wait for it to finish. The best thing to do is nothing, until it finishes.
Check the download section for possible Hotfixes for the current gameversion. Those are installed like the main package through openIV after the main file. (select “mods folder” as usual)
Reshade & ENB Installation
Navigate to the
RESHADE OPTIONS folder in the extracted GTA5 Redux download folder.
Choose your desired option from the list of presets, open the folder and copy everything within it. Then paste into the main GTA 5 main folder, overwriting everything if prompted.
I highly recommend the Redux(original) preset to start with. If you run the game successfully, you can go ahead and try the others.
When you want to CHANGE presets, DELETE the entire ReShade folder from the main GTA 5 folder.
Then copy and paste the contents of your new preset into the main GTA 5 main folder, overwriting any files.
Additionally, it is 100% “OK”, to be seeing YELLOW warning messages from ReShade when starting up. However RED indicates a mistake has been made, and the effects are not successfully compiled. Repeat the step that indicates how to change ReShade options if this occurs.
