Resolves conflict with certain Windows usernames.  

Grand Theft Auto 5's PC port has received its first patch, solving numerous errors.

1

Chief among these include an issue wherein certain Windows usernames would prevent the launcher from working.

Another issue this patch fixes is player character's faces erroneously getting transferred from the console to PC game.

It also fixes a glitch causing the launcher to use more CPU bandwidth than it should, resulting in the game crashing.

The full patch notes, via Rockstar's support page, are as follows:

  • Fixed an issue where the GTAV Launcher would use an abnormally high percentage of CPU and sometimes crash.
  • Fixed an issue where frame rate would drop when left-clicking the mouse while driving.
  • Added a grid to the Golf mini-game to show the topology of the green while putting.
  • Fixed an issue where a character's eyebrows or other facial features could change erroneously when transferred to PC.
  • Fixed an issue where a some players were asked to transfer their GTA Online character while a transfer was already in progress.
  • YouTube uploads via the Rockstar Editor will now correctly resume if Internet connection is lost during the upload and later restored.
  • Fixed a rare issue where the game could crash while using the Rockstar Editor.
  • Projects containing deleted clips will now load properly in the Rockstar Editor and warn the player of the missing clips.
  • Fixed an issue where birds were not recorded correctly in Rockstar Editor clips.
  • Corrected an issue where certain characters in Windows usernames would cause the Launcher to fail to load or other undesired game behavior.
  • Fixed an issue where players with one garage would not be able to replace an existing vehicle if the garage was full and the new vehicle was purchased from an in-game website.
  • Additional fixes to prepare for iFruit support.
  • Crew Tire Smoke can no longer be purchased if you are not in a Crew.
