    Hi you guys! Recently, I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about people getting stuttering/crashing on many GTA V forums, you are complaining fucking lots of about crashing/stutteringin each different PC’s congif so that it finds difficult to help you get the most exact answer. I try my best to collect all complaints about this problem and useful comments of other guys.
    #1 I just bought GTA and my computer doesn’t seem to handle it so well. I’m getting lagspikes after about 5-10 minutes of pure gameplay (around 60fps). It doesn’t matter if I lower my graphics settings because the stutter will be there!
    I’ve been googling around and find no solution.
    Notes:
    My processor seems to throttle ALOT and running unstable. Every time it lag, the CPU dips.
    CPU temp is around 52c at full load.
    GPU temp is around 60c at full load.
    AMD X4 955 BE
    4GB RAM
    560Ti 448c
    I’ve downloaded AMD overdrive to try to force the CPU to work 100%. Did not work.
    I’ve tried to tweak with the graphics settings. No difference except I will get fps lag at higher graphics.
    I’ve applied new cooling pasta to the CPU and checked all fans, so temp is not an issue.
    And here is maybe the solution for #1
    => 1.Exactly what settings are you playing on?
    I had a 560ti myself before it died on me, i could run the game at low with steady 60fps, but if tried to put it higher like medium or something the exact same thing happend to me with spikes.
    Now when i’m on a 750ti i only have FPS problems that are solved by turning off and on Vsync, and then the game runs perfectly.
    => 2.Your ram is on the low side. Consider upgrading to 8gb or more.
    Your processor is weak. I had a phenom ii x4 too back when GTAV came out. Consider upgrading your pc or cap the fps to 30 using vsync half.
    #2 I just build myself a new computer this week. i5-4690s | GTX 970 FTW+ | 16GB DDR3 | SSD for windows 10 | SSD for games. Got everything booted up and stuttering.
    I did all the normal things: -Set prefer max performance in Nvidia Control Panel -Disabled v-sync in game and enabled adaptive v-sync in Nvidia control panel -Tried every combination for FXAA, MXAA, TXAA, etc -Clean installed Nvidia 362.00 Drivers -Uninstalled windows update KB3140743
    Still stuttering like crazy. Insane lag online. Processor pegged 100%. GPU usage barely 50%. Frame rates bouncing from 10-40 fps no matter the graphics settings.
    => Make sure your Xbox One controller is off when you launch GTA V. Once you are in your online session or story mode, then you connect the controller. No issues with stuttering after that.
    I know this is not ideal. Especially if you are using the xbox controller as your main input as I am for my HTPC gaming computer, but it’s the only fix I’ve found as of 2016-03-11. I am using an elite controller with the wireless xbox adapter for windows. You do NOT need to disconnect the wireless adapter, just make sure the controller is not USB or Wireless connected.( this is a quite effective way with many guys)
    #3 Downloaded the update this morning 3/15/16. Windows 10 also forced an update, really gotta turn that off… made no changes to my setup aside from those, and now getting loads of stutter in online sessions. Connection is solid, all drivers are up to date, even tried some of the solutions stickied to this sub, which I previously had not done, but still with no success… I really hope I’m not alone in this…
    I tried running the game again today. I was only able to get through the first heist in safe mode w/ Trevor and Michael. THEN I NOTICED the background process “DVR Broadcast Server” in task manager using 10,000 mb of memory! It disappeared upon closing GTAV. As this post suggests it may be related to the Xbox app, I think it’s a feature that’s supposed to facilitate gameplay recording… Will disable and return with more info. Disabling this feature fixed my issue.
    => SOLUTION: Disable the DVR feature in the Xbox app/Uninstall Xbox app. This is a solution for Windows 10.
    To disable the Xbox DVR, open Xbox app > Settings (sprocket icon, bottom left) > Game DVR > “Record Game clips … ” = Off
    The Xbox app is built in and must be removed using Powershell. To uninstall it, you will have to run Powershell as administrator, then paste and enter the following line:
    Get-AppxPackage *xboxapp* | Remove-AppxPackage
    No two setups are alike, and thus, I could never definitively say whether this will work for everyone, but it worked for me.
    Rockstar game version, running Win 10 on 6700K w/ 750ti.
    #4 Computer is an i7920@4ghz, 6gb ddr3 ram, 120gb ssd, gtx 970, and OS windows 8.1 64 bit. My first area of suspicion was ram because I am 2 gb short of the recommended specification but usage in-game rarely shows much over 5 gb. Vram usage also does not go over 3.2 gb from what I have seen(gtx 970 has 3.5 gb max). My next best guess was solid state drive as I only have 14.6 gb free after installing gta 5 but the problem only occurs when gta 5 is running, so I think that rules out hard disk drive space as I surmise if low space were the issue, the problem would be constant regardless of what programs are running. To be specific, the lag I am experiencing is mostly related to the keyboard. There is a noticeably delay while typing. I’m not sure where the problem lies.
    => I have the same thing, try turning VSYNC on and see if that works. It has to do with your Fps being high, so the menu mouse movements are paired to your FPS, making it very detailed and slow.
    => The issue lies in the GTALauncher.exe using CPU cycles while GTA5.exe is running. there’s a fix for this, and hopefully R* will patch it in the next patch. you can run a batch file to start the game with the following:
    Steam version: start steam://rungameid/271590 timeout 60 wmic process where name=”GTAV.exe” CALL setpriority “high” wmic process where name=”GTAVLauncher.exe” CALL setpriority “idle” wmic process where name=”subprocess.exe” CALL setpriority “idle”
    Non-steam version: start “C:\Program Files (x86)\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto V\GTAVLauncher.exe” wmic process where name=”GTA5.exe” CALL setpriority “high” wmic process where name=”GTAVLauncher.exe” CALL setpriority “idle” wmic process where name=”subprocess.exe” CALL setpriority “idle”
    obviously if you have the non-steam one, you need to change the directory listed in the above command to reflect wherever you have it installed.
    #5 I bought GTA V with a few mates, and we have been trying to play online and do heists and jobs and what not, but whenever we do it is always really laggy, If im in a friends car it will appear that he is driving into walls and other cars, yet he says that is not happening on his screen, also sometimes my character freezes when I try and get into my friends cars and Vica versa, whenever we complete a mission my friends reward screen always takes a little longer to show up as well, We all have decent computer so i don’t that would be the reason. I Live in Auckland, New Zealand, my Speedtest shows that I have 24 ping, 7 mbps down and 1 mbps up. not really sure if there is anything I can do to stop the lag ( or what ever it is ) but I though i would ask asnyways.
    => Make sure you close down all internet applications you, or others in your house may be using. Things like Bittorrent, Youtube, and any other bandwidth hogging applications.
    GTA Online uses UDP which is a “low priority” protocol and is usually the first traffic to disappear when an internet connection gets saturated, which with your 7/1 connection will happen quite quickly.
    If you’re living by yourself, and you’re absolutely certain that any other internet using device is turned off … then sorry, can’t help you. If you’re a kid sharing internet with your family … good luck trying to get any priority over everyone else.
    => Wellington here (100/10). Might be more to do with you connecting to games/players way out of our region? I have had this occasionally happen, thought not as bad as yours, playing with people in the US, etc but not anywhere near as much as with people from AUS. Your ping is only relative to where the speedtest connected to though, which for you will either be Welly or CHCH, so it’s not a good measure for GTAO. I assume you’re on ADSL by that result – which wont help you much here.
    I can only assume the freeroam servers are more toward the northern hemisphere too.
    Might just be the usual NZ PC gamer server suffering – servers always too far away or not quite close
    #6 The reason I was stuttering and the menu was lagging is because when I enter the menu, my FPS sky rocket as the game got paused (hence why this only happens in Single player portion), and when I was flying, or out in the ocean, I got terrible stuttering every 3 seconds, is because my FPS also went sky rocket. By limiting my FPS to match my screen refresh rate, I completely eliminate the stuttering AND menu lag.
    My setup:
    i5-4690K @ stock clock
    GTX970 @ stock clock
    Running GTAV on an SSD
    => And the problem was fixed by the guy
    I managed to fixed those two issues completely, and here is how I do it
    Download RivaTuner Statics Server (If you already have MSI Afterburner, which you should, I mean, come on, then Rivatunner should already be installed along with Afterburner).
    When you finish downloading and installing the required software, open up RivaTunner Statics Server, and you should be seeing this screen.
    Next you will select the giant plus icon at the lower left corner of the window, a new window will pop up, navigate to your GTA5 installed directory (default is C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto V\GTA5.exe) and select GTA5.exe, like in this picture.
    Now look for GTA5.exe in the left side where it lists all the .exe, click and select GTA5.exe, navigate to the right hand side, and look for framerate limit, enter a desired number. I recommend to enter the number equal to your monitor refresh rate, mine is 120Hz so I entered 120, if yours is 60Hz, enter 60, and so forth. Look here for an example
    When you done all that, just hit enter, and you should be good to go, start up GTA 5 and see if this fixes your stuttering and menu lag issues.
    Ok, there are some cases that the others get this fucking shit. I’m hope that one of these maybe is your case and you can try it for your. And I find another post that also collect some ways to fix this. You click here to see more
    Look forward to hearing from your good result!
    End!

    ok guy, maybe your post is useful for me and others but I wonder if you’re ok or not cuz the title is talking about lagging but in the content is about crashing. the problem of lagging is different from crashing, I think you got mistake, right? Check it to make it more perfect!
