How to backup your GTA Files and play before RageMP updates - December 2020


Recommended Posts

This guide must be performed BEFORE the update to continue playing on GTAW until Rage releases an update.

 

You can of course patiently wait for Rage's update and do nothing, which will just prevent you from playing for a day or two.

1. Head to your GTAV game Directory:

 

  • Steam:
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto V

 

  • Epic Games:
    • C:\Program Files\Epic Games\GTAV

 

  • Rockstar Launcher
    • C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto V

 


 

2. Take the following files:

 

  • GTA5.exe
  • GTAVLauncher.exe  (PlayGTAV for Epic)
  • update/update.rpf
    • You will have to create the "update" folder in your "backup" folder, then just take update.rpf into that backup folder.

 


3. And COPY them into a "backup" folder somewhere else on your PC (Suggested: Desktop folder called "Backup")

4. When GTAV updates

 

Let it do so, and wait until it fully completes the update.

Copy the files (GTA5.exe, GTAVLauncher.exe, and the folder "update" into your main GTAV directory and replace any currently existing files.

 

5. (Rockstar Games Launcher ONLY)

 

To prevent the game from updating again :

  • Hit Start - Type "firewall", Hit Enter
  • Hit Advanced Settings on the Left hand side
  • Select Outbound Rules
  • New Rule > Program > Select your game > Hit Next
  • Select Block This Connection > Next
  • Leave all three network types checked > Next
  • Give it a name > Finish
  • Repeat the process for Inbound

 

You'll need to delete this rule once the update can be deployed.

 


 

How to revert all of your hard work:

 

Simply verify game files through whichever platform you run.

 

It'll take a few, but eventually it will replace all the old stuff with the new stuff.

 

If you'd like, after the GTAV update, copy the new versions of the same list of files, so after RageMP updates, you'll just simply drag and drop and be updated.

FYI

For Social Club users, it will automatically verify your files upon launch so the back up will be undone when launching the game.

 

A small hint is to make an exception on your firewall or turn your internet off briefly when launching into the server like follows

 

> Start RAGE

> Once serverlist is loaded in, Turn off internet

> Select server and launch

> Once game launches, turn internet back on again.

 

Easiest way is to do it in the adapter settings in your PC

Or just add an exception to your firewall, turning off your internet is a terrible work around.

  • Hit Start - Type "firewall", Hit Enter
  • Hit Advanced Settings on the Left hand side
  • Select Outbound Rules
  • New Rule > Program > Select your game > Hit Next
  • Select Block This Connection > Next
  • Leave all three network types checked > Next
  • Give it a name > Finish
  • Repeat the process for Inbound

Why should the update not be implemented and why should we have to go through this huge time consuming process that require shutting off the wifi / internet or making firewall rules? Even if I were to simply disconnect my PC from the internet, that would mess up my CCTV and other apps that run on my PC rely on the internet to be running, All of this just for an unwanted update? and please, give us more information, why don't we want the new update?
