Just days after the release of its first patch, Grand Theft Auto V for PC has been updated once again, resolving more of the issues that have been cropping up for players during its first week of availability.

Among these are continuing problems with appearance changes when transferring GTA Online characters from consoles to PC. Last week's patch included a fix for a problem where your "eyebrows or other facial features could change erroneously," which has the makings of a hilarious (if obnoxious) bug. Today's patch 335.1 addresses a problem where facial features don't save after transferring from Xbox 360 or PS3.

Another fix involves an issue where players would get "stuck in the clouds" (where you wait between online matches) when they voted to quick restart the Humane Labs heist. Given that's a common thing to do after failing a heist--which isn't hard to do if you have even one person make a mistake--and how long GTA Online's load times can be, this was potentially a very frustrating bug, as funny as it may sound.

Also of note in this patch is the addition of a benchmark test in the main menu, as well as a resolution for the Windows Media Player problem. Players that didn't have WMP installed were unable to install GTA V, but following this patch, it's no longer a requirement--instead you'll only need Windows Media Foundation.
