Grand Theft Auto 5 sold through more than one million units within its first day on sale on PC, setting Steam alight and busting through the 300,000 concurrent players mark. It’s a magnificent port with some great performance and even better visuals. But, as always with something this large, there were a few teething problems.

This latest PC patch for GTA 5 fixes a whole host of niggling issues, including that Windows Media Player installation bug. Best of all for PC fans though is you can now hop straight into a video card benchmark test from the main menu, while crashes occurring immediately after GTA V launches should now be eliminated, fingers crossed.

GTA 5 PC 335.1 Patch Notes

  • Players can no longer purchase more vehicles than their properties can store
  • Players can now launch a video card benchmark test from the main menu
  • Fixed an issue where facial features would not save correctly when transferring a character from Xbox 360 or PS3 and changing genders while editing the character’s appearance
  • Fixed an issue where players could become stuck in the clouds when voting to quick restart the Humane Labs Heist
  • Fixed an issue where markers in the Rockstar Editor could not be deleted with the mouse
  • Fixed various audio recording issues with Rockstar Editor clips
  • Fixed an issue where the Yacht would not appear in some recorded Rockstar Editor clips
  • Fixed a rare issue where some Rockstar Editor clips could not be opened for editing
  • Fixed an issue where the GTAV Launcher would not display the correct amount of time remaining for file downloads
  • The Steam overlay has been moved to prevent it from covering up Launcher buttons
  • Fixed an issue where the game would not save your settings when restarting in some instances
  • Fixed a rare issue where the Steam version of the game would crash right after launching
  • Windows Media Player is no longer required to install GTAV. Instead, Windows Media Foundation will be required
  • Fixed an issue where the game would show the pause menu without player input
  • Fixed an issue where the max frame rate would be incorrectly low in rare cases

As per usual your copy of GTA V should update automatically when you load up Steam, or when you attempt to boot up the game. According to my install the patch weights in at around 177MB.

My heists are bugged. I start the heist with Trevor but it puts everyone in the Heist for Humane Labs. It's so twisted, we're told different things that what the mission is actually about. Trevor told us to steal some drugs or something, but we went after insurgents instead. What the hell? :D

The update seemed to cause some fps issues now. It was running smoothly, now it seems a little laggy.

Fixed so many things but still can't fix one of the most important and game breaking bug that is the car aim/crash also known as the Blitz Play bug (the cause is the same). Those guys really need to reprioritize their tickets.

Is the Steam version automatically being patched? Because there are patch notes on the Steam forums, but it hasn't downloaded any updates whatsoever...

It's weird, I hadn't played it for about a week, but when I first played it a week ago, I had zero issues, no crashes, great performance. I started playing again yesterday and experienced a few crashes after I restarted the main story mission, although I figured the cause of that had something to do with Radeonpro running, and disabling my GTA5 profile in Radeopro fixed those crashes, so I played for another two hours without issues, great performance, and out of nowhere

I got a crash while playing with Chop (the dog). Maybe it's just a random crash after playing too long, I'm not sure. Not experiencing any overheating or maxed out resources, everything seems very stable. The crashes I experienced while playing with the Radeonpro profile running were always in the same spot, right at the beginning with the shootout with the police, but again, I fixed that by disabling my GTA5 Radeonpro profile.

Checking the event log, I see the crash with Exception code: 0xc0000005 and Faulting module name: unknown. I've seen a few recent posts on the Rockstar forums with people experiencing the same thing; so far no word from Rockstar. Sounds like a general error and maybe they can't pinpoint the cause. But there are very few responses; don't seem very helpful when they do respond. I scanned for malware, etc., as well, and everything's okay. Maybe this latest patch will help.

Sorry to reply to my own post again, but I read on a few other sites that some people have had luck with disabling ANY kind of FPS display. In my case, I've been using the Steam FPS display since yesterday, but when I first played it, I didn't have that on. So I'm going to turn that off and try a longer play session later. I know a some games have issues with overlays and FPS counters, and GTA5 may not get along with those, either.

open up system resources while you play the game to see any potential bottlenecks. your GPU is powerful so unless it's faulty, I wouldn't suspect it. Your processor does seem pretty weak compared to your GPU though. Maybe that's the bottleneck? or maybe you're playing with too many ultra settings?

There is a quick and easy fix to the laggy mouse in the menu(if that is what you mean). Settings -> Keyboard/Mouse -> Mouse Input Method. Make it RAW (giggity). This is what fixed the laggy mouse for me which had also started happening ingame.

I had the same problem many times. Solution was to stop using C4 and Granades normally. I use them only with quick throw(aim a weapon and press G). This is more of a workaround but it got me through to the end of campaign with no crashes. I should see if your solution works for me though.

After transfering my character, I've noticed I have lipstick. I'm sure I've noticed it while changing the appearance of the character, so I removed it, but now it's still there... It would be nice of Rockstar to allow us to change the appearance one more time after if the bug's fixed.

You aren't alone with the lipstick bug! Luckily if you go to one of the hairdressers on the map you can remove it, but it seems to come back now and then. Unfortunately if I forget to check and my friends see it they make fun of me.
