    This past week, Grand Theft Auto V received a new downloadable content package from Rockstar titled Ill-Gotten Gains DLC Part 2. Most of us are still mourning the loss of millions of dollars that we spent on either the new Coil Brawler, the newest luxury off-road vehicle, or the new Progen T20, one of the the fastest cars to have ever hit the streets of Los Santos. It was quite a successful and fun-filled update, however it wasn't all fun and games for those who are playing GTA on the PC. An innumerable amount of Grand Theft Auto V PC players have been reporting frame rate issues following the game's latest 1.28 title update.

    This issue first surfaced after a user asked Rockstar why his frame rate began to drop after he installed the latest title update. Rockstar Support responded briefly by saying this, "We have received reports of lower framerate in GTAV and GTA Online after Title Update 1.28 on PC, and we are looking into these reports now." The latest add-on has resulted in frame rates as low as 3-frames-per-second for those running the extremely popular LCPD modification. According to a recent Facebook post from the developers of the LCPD first response mod, the problems were side-effects of new anti-modding measures, that were supposedly introduced by Rockstar in the most recent patch. Despite that this particular modification could be causing massive drops in frame rate, performance issues were additionally reported from players that did not have any mods installed at the time.

    This is a continuing story, I will update this article when a fix has been implemented by Rockstar...

    Frame drops on a massive online game with more updates/patches/DLC's than any other game I can think of? I am not surprised.

      Neither am I. What makes this game similar to a quilt? The amount of patches...*rimshot*

    It's a good thing I don't use PC for gaming.

    The game ran horribly even before these latest reports. The loading screens are locked at 30 frames per second, there's massive frame rate drops from 80 to 37 everywhere and it crashes constantly. Add that to the anti-modding policy and uncustomizable field of view preferences and Rockstar can just screw themselves.

    Non-modified game, and verified non-modified friend's games also suffering massive framerate loss. I have personally seen the game go to an unplayable 5-12 frames per second during invite only sessions, and a Fios connection that reads <80MBPS both up and down. It isn't my machine (which WAS running this fine before) or my connection (reading over 80MBps) so it has to be the new code added in.

    Frameerate drops are a thing on Xbox One too.

      I haven't seen honestly any framerate drops in a while on xbone. Maybe your xbone has downsyndrome who knows.
    2. 3xTiNcT
      Yeah I still haven't experienced any. It's just your Xbox One dude.

    To be honest, I've had frame issues from the beginning with this game. My computer is more than capable of running this game just fine, but even on the lowest settings I occasionally drop down to between 1-10 FPS anywhere near the $400k apartment, and I get quite a few FPS drop spikes across the city. I'm not sure why, and I've never found a solution for it.

    To be honest, though, I thought this update actually improved my FPS by about 3.

    LCPDFR is one of the best mods made for GTA: IV, and it's amazing that R* don't care at all about that. If they were as smart as they claim they are, they'd create a Cops N' Crooks DLC for GTA: Online just because of it's popularity according to how many players would like it returned in V from IV. There's enough leftover animations to suggest R* at one point was considering this, but it can still happen if they'd stop worrying about blocking all mods and instead just working on patching the mods that are actually harmful to their game (i.e: FORCE and Endeavour trainers).

    I am having lots of fps issues mainly in the middle of the map near Franklin's house and the vinewood sign. Other places have it too. I downgraded to 1.24 and still have these issues :/. I don't know if this is a driver issue for my GPU (GTX 980Ti) or if this is something wrong with the game itself.

      Rockstar didn't give a **** and ****ed up the FPS for everyone on PC
