Install ASI

The ASI allows custom mods to be loaded in to GTA V and gives us the mods folder

Click Tools>ASI Manager

Install ASI Loader and OpenIV.ASI.

Part 2: Install ScriptHookV

Script Hook V is the library that allows us to use GTA V script native functions in custom *.asi plugins and is required to run GTA 5 Redux.

Download the latest version of ScriptHookV.

Open the ZIP files and copy the files ScriptHookV.dll, and dinput8.dll from the bin folder, into the main GTA 5 folder.

Part 3: Install GTA 5 Redux

Before starting the next step, make sure you have 100% clean, un-modded install of GTA V.

Tip: You can verify the game files by using Steam verify or GTA V Launcher verify.

Download the latest version of GTA 5 Redux from the downloads section.

Once downloaded fully extract the zip archive.

Run OpenIV selecting tools>Package Installer and locate the GTA_5_REDUX_V1.X.oiv file from the extracted GTA5 Redux download.

Open the .oiv file to begin the installation.

Click install and choose the option to install the mod inside the created mods folder.

The installer will now run and will take a while as it is copying all the files required to run the mod from the main GTA V folder.

Once the installer is complete you can select the option to run GTA 5 Redux to test that it works.

If the mod is working you will see the GTA 5 Redux intro video when loading GTA V.
