Step 1: Installing Mods

The first step to change gender in GTA 5 is to install mods on your PC. Mods are custom modifications created by the gaming community that can alter various aspects of the game, including player models. To install mods, follow the steps below:

  1. Download a script hook that is compatible with your version of GTA 5. Script hooks allow scripts to run in the game and are necessary for many mods to work. You can find script hooks on popular modding websites or forums.
  2. Extract the downloaded script hook files to a temporary folder on your PC.
  3. Locate your GTA 5 game directory on your computer. The default directory is usually “C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto V”.
  4. Copy the extracted script hook files into your game directory. If prompted, choose to replace any existing files.

Step 2: Installing Character Model Mods

Now that you have set up the necessary framework for mods, it’s time to install character model mods that will replace your current character’s model with the opposite gender. Follow these steps to install character model mods:

  1. Browse popular GTA 5 modding websites or forums to find a character model mod that suits your preferences. Make sure the mod is compatible with your version of the game.
  2. Download the mod files to a temporary folder on your PC.
  3. Open your GTA 5 game directory.
  4. Create a new folder named “mods” in your game directory (if it doesn’t already exist).
  5. Copy the downloaded mod files into the “mods” folder.

Step 3: Enabling Mods

After installing the character model mod, you need to enable mods in GTA 5 to ensure they are loaded when you launch the game. Here’s how you can enable mods:

  1. Open the “mods” folder in your game directory.
  2. Locate the file named “dinput8.dll” and copy it.
  3. Paste the copied “dinput8.dll” file into your game directory (not the “mods” folder).
  4. Rename the copied “dinput8.dll” file to “dinput8.dll.disabled”.
  5. Launch GTA 5 and check if the character model mod is working by starting a new game or loading an existing save file.

Step 4: Configuring Character Model Mods

Some character model mods provide additional configuration options that allow you to customize various aspects of the new character model. Follow these steps to configure your character model mod:

  1. Open the “mods” folder in your game directory.
  2. Look for any configuration files related to your character model mod (e.g., “mod_name.ini” or “mod_name.cfg”).
  3. Use a text editor to open the configuration file.
  4. Read through the file’s instructions or documentation to understand the available configuration options.
  5. Make changes to the configuration file as desired.
  6. Save the modified configuration file.

Step 5: Troubleshooting and Compatibility

If you encounter any issues or conflicts while changing the gender in GTA 5 using mods, follow these troubleshooting steps:

  1. Ensure that you have installed the correct version of the script hook and character model mods compatible with your GTA 5 version.
  2. Check for any conflicting mods by temporarily removing other mods from your “mods” folder and testing the gender change mod individually.
  3. Look for any known issues or compatibility patches related to the character model mod on modding websites or forums.
  4. Update your GTA 5 game to the latest version, as mods may not work correctly with outdated game versions.
  5. Make sure your PC meets the recommended system requirements to run GTA 5 and mods smoothly.
  6. Consider seeking assistance from the modding community through forums or support channels if you are unable to resolve the issue on your own.


By following this tutorial, you should now have a good understanding of how to change the gender in GTA 5 using mods. Keep in mind that modding your game comes with its own risks, and it’s essential to use reputable sources for mods and follow instructions carefully to avoid any potential issues. Enjoy exploring the game with your new character model!
