  1. What gpu do you have?
  2. Some has suggested reinstalling directx from within the gta folder (CommonRedist), thats what I did, and so far, it seems to be working for me at least. Just find that DX setup in that folder and see if that solves your problem. Another possible fix for this problem is deleting the d3dcompiler_46.dll and d3dcsx_46.dll and re download those files. Hope this helps :) Also, you should be running the game in windowed borderless, because fullscreen has also been tied to this issue for some reason.

    If you have the steam version, you can go into properties and click on verify game cache, and it will re-download the files for you. If you downloaded from rockstar, it should be automatically downloaded when you launch the game, but take a backup just in case, otherwise I can send you a link.

    not helped, tried both ways, still cant run dx11
  7. Hmm, I think we will have to wait for a patch from Rockstar then. Its not really stable for me either, especially online.

  11. Then I'm sorry man, its not much you can do except to run the game with dx 10.1 until a patch comes out.

    what do you mean? as always i run it with high settings
  15. Try lowering down your graphics settings all the way down with directx 11 enabled. Keep your resolution the same. See if the error pops up.
  16. Disable vsync as well.
  17. Think I got a solution.

    Amd users dont let AMD Gaming Evolved optimize your game!
    I reversed the optimalisation and it's working great again.

    If I optimize again it is crashing within minutes.

    Hopefully it helps for other people
  18. What would your recommended settings be for a AMD Radeon R9 380 be? wihtout using amd evovled
