The highly-anticipated GTA V launched on PC on Tuesday. While some enthusiasts are able to enjoy the crime-filled blockbuster, others are unable to install it due to username bugs. GTA developer Rockstar said it was aware that a bug involving Windows usernames had rendered the game unplayable for some gamers, reports Jeff Parsons of the Mirror.
How to install the GTA V properly
Players whose usernames contain irregular characters are likely to get an error message that interrupts the download and stops the game from installing properly. Rockstar advises such users to create a new Windows system administrator username containing letters A-Z and numbers 0-9. Rockstar said on its support page that simply renaming your current user account is not going to resolve the issue.
After creating your new account, restart your PC and log in using the new username before starting or continuing with the installation. Along with the main game, Rockstar has also released the GTA Online for PC, allowing users to participate in multiplayer car chases and shootouts.
Many of Mortal Kombat X players want their money back
Meanwhile, another game, the Mortal Kombat X, has also left fans angry and confused, reports Kotaku. Fans were able to download the first three gigs of the violence-filled game on Steam. Developer NetherRealm Studios is testing a new install system, where they offer a smaller initial download to get players into the game. And then the enormous data is streamed in the background.
But the downloadable data is just not there. It is expected to be available when the Mortal Kombat X: Kombat Pack DLC unlocks. But there is no official indication of this. Steam discussion forum for Mortal Kombat X is flooded with angry comments. Many customers have asked for a refund. You can launch the game, you can tweak the options, but it crashes immediately the moment you try to start playing.
