GTA V Freeze

Hello,
Recently, I installed GTA V through Lutris Installer script and whenever i start the game, on any key press the game freezes for like 1-2 seconds . Any ideas to solve this ? :slight_smile:

Which installer did you use?

The instructions of the Steam (Windows) Steam w/ DXVK version contains the following remark:

“Limiting your FPS to 60 and enabling V-Sync inside of the game, will solve stuttering problems in most cases.”

Could this be your issue?

Any updates on this? I’m having the same issue.
For me, I noticed my keyboard controls work in the game when the app is not in direct focus (when I’m on my second monitor, but then my mouse doesn’t work). As soon as I give focus back to GTA the keyboard continues to freeze the game.

For me, keyboard works fine in the main menu. It only freezes the game once it starts.

Edit:
Looks like this bug might be related: https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=43102

Tried both of solutions to fix that. It doesn’t works :frowning:

Any ideas?

If it’s related to the bug mentioned on winehq, it’s possible an older version of wine may have the patch included (they removed it in newer releases). I’ve tried a few different wine runners now with no success. Very annoying since it “works” for me when not in focus.

Sounds a lot like the issue I was having a couple days ago after installing the Steam w/ DXVK version from https://lutris.net/games/grand-theft-auto-v/
Mouse and Xbox controller were working perfectly but keyboard input froze the game for about 5-10 seconds at a time. I changed my runner from lutris-nofshack-4.18 to winehq staging 4.18 and now everything works as it should.

Ok. Found a solution. I installed GTA V Social Club Version through Lutris Installer script and changed the runner to Proton 4.11 with VSync On . Game is running very smoothly.

Worked for me as well. I was trying a bunch of older runners, just needed the newest one!
