    Will LSPDFR sync related features be added to the API at some point in the future? It would be cool for callouts/plugins to be able to add their own stats and activities to the activity feed. E.g. "Bob Vance just freed 5 hostages at the Pacific Standard Bank", "EMS just saved 2 people on Vespucci Boulevard... sadly, 3 people did not make it", etc.

    Hopefully not as classist and Elite as DOJRP. the LSPDFR/LCPDFR has always been way more welcoming to new members. Super excited to see what's next.

    I've been working with @zombieguy over the past few days to try to narrow down the issue as it seems to only happen for a very limited number of people, but on very different systems (so not necessarily a slow system issue). We've made some good progress, but it is still not entirely clear what is causing the drops and especially why only you guys are affected.

    riquebr reacted to Reddington in I'm a console player and want to play LSPDFR. Where do I start?   
    We often get questions from console players asking how they can play LSPDFR on console, or they want to switch to PC but have no idea how to get started.  In order to not deceive anyone, let me be clear that LSPDFR  is a PC only modification.  Cyan (one of the developers) has said a few times that there is a good chance it will always be PC only. 
     
    Side note:  LCPDFR is for GTA IV, and LSPDFR is for GTA V.  Making this clarification because people regularly confuse the two and cause confusion for others. 😛
     
    This leaves only one option, getting a PC. If you've only played on console, the PC world can be confusing at first.  What do I buy?  What runs games the best?  I assume all computers can run games equally. Do I have to use mouse/keyboard?  Desktop or laptop?
     
    I've been in your position before.  I started off playing some of the original consoles all the way up until the PS3 before I switched to PC.  Lets address the whole desktop vs laptop question.  Desktops are better and generally offer a lot more power, however gaming laptops can be good if you're willing to fork over the cash.  One of the biggest differences from console and PC gaming is prices.  PCs can cost a shit ton, especially if you regularly replace parts for the newest and best.  Some people opt to build their own gaming PC, which is cheaper to do.  There are plenty of tutorials out there if it's something you wish to try.  Regardless of laptop or desktop, the more expensive a computer is the better it will be.  There might be rare exceptions where a cheap desktop runs a game like GTA V with mods at good fps, but for the most part, expensive is better! 
     
    If you're still asking laptop or desktop, it comes down to you and what is more comfortable and convenient for you.  If you're a console player who has never used a desktop or rarely ever uses one (lets face it, in this day and age most people just use their phones), it might be awkward at first to get use to things. I recommend you go out to whatever local place sells PCs and you play around with their display laptop and desktops, see which you like better.  I will note, if you go for a laptop, you 100% need to buy a mouse separately.  The laptop track pad is garbage.

    Quick note: You cannot go into GTA online with mods.  If you want to play GTA Online as well, I recommend keeping two directories, a vanilla/clean one and one for mods.
     
     
    Once you have your PC and you're ready to get into LSPDFR, here are the first steps you need.  I will not be providing a tutorial on how to install any of this!  Both LSPDFR and RagePluginHook come with readmes that tell you how.  There are also plenty of tutorials on Youtube.
     
     
    1) Download LSPDFR from here:
     
    2) Go to the RagePluginHook website and download the latest version:  http://ragepluginhook.net/Downloads.aspx
     
    Note: You need to do it in the order shown.  LSPDFR does come bundled with Rage, but it's an outdated version.  If you install Rage first, then LSPDFR, there's a good chance you'll overwrite the new version with the old.
     
    3) Launch RPH and verify LSPDFR is working as intended.
     
    If you see the police station icons on the map, you can open the Rage menu with F4, and you can go on duty to be a cop, congratulations, you have got things working and can begin your patrol!
     
    If you're having trouble installing LSPDFR, or something isn't working as it should, please create a new topic here and someone will help - https://www.lcpdfr.com/forums/forum/907-lspdfr-support/
     
    ---------------
     
     
    By default, LSPDFR comes with only two-three callouts.  If you want to add more for variety, check out the plugins section of our downloads - https://www.lcpdfr.com/downloads/
     
    Downloading other mods is optional, but most people go for more because they want to enhance their game and/or make it personalized.  You can either keep the game lore friendly (IE Los Santos Police, Blaine County Sheriff), or you can download mods that have real life liveries and names.  It is your game, you can mod it however you want.  There's no right or wrong way in terms of personalization.
     
     
    There's so much you can do with your game on PC, so don't worry if it's overwhelming.  We're here to help if you need it. 🙂
     
    Welcome to LSPDFR, hope you have a good shift!

    I'm currently running NVR without any issues as of yet, though I haven't had a ton of time to play. If NVR causes any issues I'll edit this post with that.
     
    So far I'm really enjoying 0.4. The first thing I noticed was that it seems like traffic stops have been refined quite a bit. In 0.3 the AI would just scoot over a couple feet and basically stop in the middle of the road. Every car I've stopped so far (albeit only a few) have pulled all the way over or even onto the sidewalk just a little, which I feel is way more realistic and safe for players- less likely to get hit by a car.
     
    In terms of addons I've gotten ELS, EUP, NVR, SimpleFootControls, some custom vehicle models, and custom weapon models working without a hitch. I might also give some of Albo's mods a try just to see if any of them work, it seems like there's been mixed success with other people. Mostly I'd just like to have Computer+ and Smart Radio back, maybe Traffic Policer as well.
     
    Been experiencing some performance loss even when just running LSPDFR on its own, so I don't think it's the mods doing it. My old system ran 0.3 fairly smoothly so I'm trying to figure out what's causing the FPS hit.
     
    Aside from that, loving everything in 0.4!

    Great update! A lot of fun, a lot of new features!

    There is a thread where we can give feedback or is this one? The new version but there is some things that could be improved.
     
    The main issue is performance. I'm getting around 22/25 fps patrolling and 15 fps when a callout is active - Using ONLY LSPDFR 0.4 (brand new install). It's weird, 0.3 fully modded with a lot of plugins, graphics, map and traffic mods gets around 30 fps constantly ( 30 fps is not an issue for me for a game like GTA) - it's a old CPU, but... a fully modded game having better performance than the "vanilla" one is something to be investigated.

    In the character customization screen would be good to use RB/ LB (L1/ L2 ) to switch textures, like in EUP 7.5 menu. I'm ( and I think everybody else) is used to that way, it's almost automatic to do so.
     
    Time to respond is interesting, but for something like a holdup, 30s is a bit insane. you need to be a professional rally driver, because it's pedal to the metal to reach the location.
     
    And I don't know what it is, but there is a lot of blur when creating a new character/clothes/customizing the car. lots of lens flare and motion blur, it's weird.
     
    still checking it out, if I find something else ill post here ( on in the correct location)

    To everyone saying 0.4 is CTD'ing or the plugin is crashing and the mod does not work and or is broken...-..it's not. Below is a video of me launching 0.4 for the first time with a fresh install of GTA V. Just Scripthook V, Ragepluginhook, and LSPDFR 0.4 automatic installer. And behold, it functions. I have 5+ year old hardware and am running my PC on a 720p TV and it still works lol.

    I suggest putting a warning ( like in the last preview thread) in the entire website saying that all plugins from 0.3 are incompatible with 0.4. A lot of people don't understand that.

    It's to save the time from you guys and the entire community  because its getting repetitive. nobody reads the thread or have the common sense to understand that X version and Y version are incompatible.

    API changed a lot compared to 0.3, just delete everything mod related, verify game files integrity ( if you are using the steam version) and install only LSPDFR. They said a lot that plugins would be broken, idk how you guys insist on using 0.3 plugins. It's like trying to use a newer software with older patches.

    The update is going to be great when we have updated plugins.  Finally, plugins are actually going to work right, especially with what I read in the mod section. Great work guys. 
     
    People think there isn't a lot of new stuff, well there is compared to 0.3b stock. There's a lot of new stuff. But compared to 0.3 fully moded its missing a lot, and that why I say that it's going to be awesome when some of the mods get updated, especially police radio.

    currently just running it with VisualV and no other mods besides LSPDFR. It certainly feels more like a native game mode than a mod now. Really the immersion has been stepped up a lot, the animations when you grab peds is great, frisk and all that other good stuff like how peds interact to the stun gun vs firearm it great. Peds dont just walk off anymore while you interact with them. Big fan of the new character system as well as the ability to spawn at the closest police station. Definitely looking forward to plugins being compatible, running it just bare bones LSPDFR and im seeing a lot of the subtle yet awesome things that the creators did to step up the gameplay. The way other patrol units respond to commands seems much more realistic, the new system that allows you to re-engage a suspect when you find them after you lose them is really cool. The dispatch and radio voices sound more legit. It feels like it runs smoother. No crashes yet. Cant get ELS working tho.
     
    Gotta say I am impressed and i think once the plugins that we are all used to using are compatible again it'll be everything i expected.

    I think it's worth noting that LSPDFR only ships with data intended to be used with a clean installation (ie, no EUP or RDE). There's only one (actually two, the IAA has one as well) outfit because that's all that's available in the game by default.
     
    I believe people involved with EUP and RDE are working on compatible data files, but in the meantime, you're free to check the LSPDFR Wiki for information on customizing your LSPDFR experience.
