Video to install Social Club and Winetricks

If it is a bit confusing to install Social Club with the right version and winetricks then I made a video on youtube

Hope it helps.

Kind regards.
Tweak Social Club
by Javier Garcia on Wednesday November 18th 2015, 15:03
I have done the the tweak to avoid de 'synchronized' but it does not work for me (I replace by version v1.1.0.6 as suggested in the post).

Does it still work with the current version of the game?

The qweak is not just installing the version v1.1.0.6. Is also rename it to something else (I put "sucial Clob" XD) in /Program Files/Rockstar Games

Great, thanks for the answer!

-I have downloaded and installed the version after uninstalling the current version (1.6).
-I have renamed /Program Files/Rockstar Games/Social Club by /Program Files/Rockstar Games/Sucio Club
-I have reinstalled the version 1.6 and the laucher starts normally since it is the last version.
-With the launcher opened, I renamed the forder of the 1.6 and I reset Sucio Club -> Social Club in order to use the version
-I clic Play from Launcher.
-Still stuck Synchronizing :(

Am I doing anything wrong?

Do not renamed it back. Keep it as "sucio club".

It can't connect to Social Club. The tweak tricks L.A. Noire to avoid connecting to Rockstar Social Club.

The proccess is:

1- let him upgrade

2- install the 1.1.06

3- rename it

4- should work.
