GTA V Install

GTA V install

 

As you will all know GTA V has a mandatory install disc which requires 8 GB of free space.

 

As soon as you launch this disc you will be prompted to install the file. If for any reason the install does not work you can manually install to you hard drive by following this link:

The second disc is a play disc which Rockstar have already recommended isn’t installed to your hard drive as this can cause texture issues. This wont be a problem for some people but others prefer the quiet running of games installed on hard dives etc.

 

A way round this is to install the play disc to a USB flash drive which can be done as follows:

Hope this helps!!!

You can install wherever you like but Rockstar says to not install the play disc at all.

"For optimal performance, we recommend only installing the Install Disc, and not also installing the Play Disc to the Xbox 360 Hard Drive or USB drive via Xbox Home (dashboard)."

So the people who made the game say to not install the play disc if you want optimal performance.

I said the game can be installed to make it quieter not for optimal performance…

From what I have seen and heard, performance of the game is impacted if both the Install disc & the Play disc are installed to the same disk drive. This is because the drive is carefully optimised to deliver the install content only, not trying to do both. However, you can install the play disc to a second device such as a USB stick without impacting the HD optimisation. I have configured my own machine this way.
