    GTA Online doesn't seem to work properly with this mod. Whenever I try to join a friend or basically just another lobby is says something like "you can't join this session because you have corrupt game assets and data", I'm however able to play Online alone by myself. Did I install anything wrong? because in the description it says "GTA Online support"

    @Merstreets You have to have modified the same files, so to be sure, install VisualV to mods folder and use only this mod.
    @OOTV Try to get rid all of mods (or all mods from update.rpf) and install VisualV only.
    @Miswrote Few weather modifiers has blur for protagonist's effects, I didn't like it so I remove it.
    @D generation Pay more attention.
