GTA V : LSPDFR Installation for Epic Games

GTAV LSPDFR is a mod for GTAV that allows you to play as a San Andreas police official.

So you can chase down the crims instead of being one 🙂

Most the installation procedures online are for the Steam version of the game, and fail to run correctly for the Epic Games release.

So, I whipped up this guide which worked for me.

Obviously install GTA5 via Epic Games

Download LSPDFR

Download RageHook

Install LSPDFR – ensure it installs/extracts to your GTAV directory and NOT in a mods/LSPDFR/whateva directory.

ie: D:\Program Files\Epic Games\GTAV – Correct

D:\Program Files\Epic Games\GTAV\Mods\LSPDFR – Wrong

Install RageHook – this will look for your GTA directory, so ensure its located the correct directory.

Run GTAV from the Epic Games launcher, and once its started loading the game engine (usually once the Rockstar logo has appeared and sirens playing), Alt-TAB to Windows, and find the RAGEPluginHook.exe in your GTAV folder, and run it – it should now load and detect the game is already running.

Flick back to GTAV and you should see the Rage logo appear.

If you see this, you are pretty much done.

Running RageHook on its own, does try to load the game, but it gets confused as it tries to authenticate with the Rockstar Launcher rather than Epic Games, and will fail.

LSPDR is not compatible with GTAOnline, and if you try entering GTAOnline with RageHook running, you will get a warning message.

To get back into GTAOnline, you will need to exit/kill the Ragehook process.

Note : I don’t know if its a side effect or just my install, but I’ve noticed that the GTAV game exe does not seem to shutdown properly once you exit the game, so if you need the RAM/CPU back or have issues starting the game again, kill the process or reboot your PC.

Movies Moving Forward

Living in New Zealand we have been very lucky that we locked down early and are now able to be out and about.

I know in many other parts of the world this is still not possible, this brings me to movies in theatres in 2020 and moving forward.

Me and my wife went to see Wonder Woman 1984 last week at the theatre, it was nice to get out and see it on the big screen but this cost roughly $60.00 once the tickets and snacks were bought. I dread to think how it costs for a family to go to the movies these days.

From what I understand in the States, this movie was shown the streaming network HBO Max as part their plans to show a lot of their movies this year on this network. Disney and other companies are also looking at putting some of their movies on their relevant steaming platform.

I believe moving forward that we will see more simultaneous releases on and a reduced delay between when a movie is released and then appears on streaming.

Now people have got a taste of the convenience of watching movies in the safety of their own homes at a greatly reduced cost the horse wont be able to be reigned back in.

I still some movies would greatly benefit from the big screen, I am personally looking forward to the new Dune movie whenever that gets released, but just like all PC games are now online Movies now will have to change the way they are released as well.
