A week has passed since “considerable” time frame rate lags were noted with GTA V, prompting Rockstar, the developer of the game, to publicly address the issue and come through with a patch that should fix the timing issues. Rockstar updated GTA V‘s desktop game to version 1.28 in early July, and shortly thereafter, gamers started complaining of problems with the frame rate once it went live. Gamers everywhere noticed that when playing GTA Online, they were experiencing a lower frame rate, which caused major frustration.
Rockstar took the complaints seriously. A company that has long been known as dedicated to listening to fans’ needs and wants, as well as complaints, took action on the time frame issue the moment they realized there was a problem, but it took a bit of time to develop the patch. Rockstar apologized for the inconvenience that fans had experienced.
“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 – the patch is 91 MB and will improve the time rate. 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 also warned that gamers who installed single player mods may get affected, according to Tech Times.
The developer again reminded gamers that using mods on GTA Online not only gave some players an unfair advantage, but also cause havoc and disruptions to the gameplay. Rockstar stated that its primary goal was to protect against the same and would address those individual problems as they arose.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the Title Update comes during a time when GTA Online is offering gamers additional incentives, such as cash bonuses and double rewards points, always popular with GTA V gamers. This is an incentive because players also get additional benefits for finishing objectives, such as The Humane Labs Raid heist, among others, with different in-game offers available each day this week. The patch should have fixed the time frame issues, but gamers are encouraged to give feedback. On a comments section of Kotaku, a gamer expressed that online mods are the problem.
“They need to be working on the ONLINE MODS! Almost every lobby I join has 2-3 modders in it! Usually they’re minding their own business and not doing anything. However, there is always a troll, and now they have the ability to kick other players from the public lobby. I’m used to having everything from animals to Ferris wheels and UFO’s being spawned onto my character. Explosions killing everyone in the server falsely blamed on myself or others.”
