Because going khổng lồ court would take “at least a few months, huge amounts of effort,” và according khổng lồ the post “at best we’ll get absolutely nothing,” the developers decided to agree with Take-Two’s claims & will stop distribution of OpenIV.

In the post, it’s stated only “clean-room” reverse engineering was used for interoperability and there wasn’t any distribution of original data or code, và “absolutely no messing with Online.”

However, if you look over Rockstar’s end-user license agreement (EULA) its states reverse engineering is prohibited.

“You agree not to… reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, display, perform, prepare derivative works based on, or otherwise modify the Software, in whole or in part…”

Still, people continued to lớn make mods và Rockstar even stated it didn’t take special issue with mods for GTA 5 on PC as long modders steered clear of GTA Online.

“To be clear, the modding policy in our license has not changed and is the same as for GTA 4,” Rockstar said in a blog post in 2015. “No one has been banned for using single-player modifications, và you should not worry about being banned or being relegated lớn the cheater pool just for using single player PC mods.

“Our primary focus is on protecting GTA Online against modifications that could give sầu players an unfair advantage, disrupt gameplay, or cause griefing. It also bears mentioning that because game mods are by definition unauthorized, they may be broken by technical updates, cause instability, or affect your game in other unforeseen ways.”

So yes, it’s okay to use mods, but it’s not okay.
