    Ever wanted to play as different character in GTA V? But you can't do that because you don't have a modded console? Well, now there is a USB method!

    Edit: You no longer need Hex Editor to do this! Just download the latest version of Hazard's Save Editor and you're good to go! :smile:
    On Save Editor go to 'Other' (Star icon) and select 'Ped Editor' on right.


    The only programs you need is GTA V Save Editor and Hex Editor.

    Link for the programs:
    HxD Hex Editor: [Click here to view the link]
    Hazard's Save Editor [Click here to view the link] (Currently on 2.0.1.6)

    Ped Hashes can be found here: [Click here to view the link]

    SP Model Swapper: http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/threads/mini-release-sp-model-swapper.1173387/ (By DeweySalt) [You don't need HxD, if you're using this tool.]

    A few notes before we start:

    • Do not make Quick Save while you're playing as modded character, when you load your save, it just loads your save forever.
    • These models can freeze your console:
    A_C_Chickenhawk
    A_C_Cormorant
    A_C_Cow (Works sometimes.)
    A_C_Crow
    A_C_Deer (Works sometimes.)
    A_C_Fish (Need to be in water.)
    A_C_Hen
    A_C_Pigeon
    A_C_Rat (Works sometimes.)
    A_C_Seagull
    A_C_SharkTiger (Need to be in water.)
    However freezing can be fixed. I'll explain the fix soon.
    • You must go to Online when you wish to change your character and then use Character Selection Wheel to select the character you want to play as. (It will freeze your character if you change it in Single Player.)
    • Ignore ''0x'' in the hashes.
    Now let's get started!

    Main Tutorial
    1. Load your game and do a Quick Save.
    2. Open your game save with Save Editor.
    3. Select ''Block'' and extract PSIN.
    4. Now open the PSIN file what you just extracted with Hex Editor.
    5. Find hex values from ''Player_Zero (Michael)'', ''Player_One (Franklin)'' and ''Player_Two (Trevor)''. Remember to obtain the values which starts with ''0x'', but without copying ''0x''. Ped Hashes can found in here: [Click here to view the link]
    6. Press ''CTRL+F'' in HxD and paste the value you just obtained (Put Datatype to ''Hex-Values''.) and press ''OK''.
    7. If you're using a Current Character, press F3 twice, if it's not press F3 just once. (If unsure just press F3 as long it gaves you a note. :tongue:)
    8. Find for a ped hash you want to play as and replace it with the old value. (Hashes can again found in here: [Click here to view the link]) Remember to ignore ''0x''.
    9. When done replacing Michael, Franklin and Trevor, save the file.
    10. Replace the PSIN block with Save Editor.
    11. Save your game save.
    12. Load your game with the modded game save.
    13. After the game is loaded you character should be frozen and unable to move. To fix this go to any Online Session.
    14. When in Online Session choose a character you want to play as with the Character Selection Wheel.
    15. When SP is loaded you should be now the character you just modded! :biggrin:
    How to fix console freeze with some models (Play as shark, birds, etc)
    1. To play as animals that freeze your console, Michael or Trevor first need to be dead. (Do a mission ''Something Sensible'' or ''The Time's Come.'') [Or just use Save Editor.]
    2. After the mission do a Quick Save. (If you're gonna play as shark or fish, do a Quick Save in the water.)
    3. Open your game save with Save Editor.
    4. Switch your Current Character to dead character. (Trevor or Michael.)
    5. Select ''Block'' and extract PSIN.
    6. Do the same steps that i mentioned in a main tutorial. (Steps 4-9.)
    7. Replace the PSIN block with Save Editor.
    8. Save your game save.
    9. In game load your game save.
    10. Go to an Online Session.
    11. When you see ''Return to Grand Theft Auto V'' to appear when joining online, press Circle to back out. (PS3)
    12. You should be now the character you modded on the location you last were.
    Play as birds
    To play as birds you must first activate Invincibility and then activate Skyfall cheat codes to make them able to walk.

    PS3
    Invincibility: Right, X, Right, Left, Right, R1, Right, Left, X, Triangle
    Skyfall: L1, L2, R1, R2, Left, Right, Left, Right, L1, L2, R1, R2, Left, Right, Left, Right

    Xbox360
    Invincibility: Right, A, Right, Left, Right, RB, Right, Left, A, Y
    Skyfall: LB, LT, RB, RT, Left, Right, Left, Right, LB, LT, RB, RT, Left, Right, Left, Right

    Creator (PS3)
    As for some weird reason you can't go to Creator normally in Single Player when you have modded character. It will bring you GTA Online Session automatically. If you want to play as your modded character in Creator
    to the following trick: Go to the Creator press it once and black alert screen should appear. As soon as you press X to confirm, press PS3 home button, Account Management, press triangle, sign out, then press the home button again and sign in screen should open up again, then quickly press X to sign in. This can make few tries though. If done correctly you should be in Creator Menu. (Make sure you have Auto-Sign in enabled.) This is similar like the old SP-MP glitch few patches ago. :tongue:

    Hopefully this was clear enough and helpful! My english is not that good... :tongue:

    I found a fix for unlimited loading screen.
    When you replace the PSIN.GTAVB using the save editor (don't save the changes yet) go to charchters tab (in save game editor) and select Michael from here..now you can save and you won't have a freeze.

    I'm going to try this now :tongue:already know who I want.

    What is Packies model name? I can't find it. I've Searched for "Packie" "PM" & Mcreary but it seems it's not on that list, unless it's under something silly.

    Are you sure that the game save what you used is a modded one? You character should be frozen when your save is loaded.

    Would someone be so kind as to elaborate on Step 5 a little further? I don't see the values for the players anywhere in the HEX and have no idea which row of numbers I'm suppose to be looking at.

    You can replace some models of other characters. For example,
    (Alien) 64611296 can replace (Jimmy) 570462B9
