SocialClub Notification Blocker

Download v0.1.0

Main Menu


  1. Download and extract (or build yourself).

  2. Run SCBlocker.exe as Administrator.

    • Alternatively, if you have Python, you can run directly from the interpreter by executing python in an elevated command prompt while at the repo directory.
      • If you use this method then no build is needed.
  3. If the program is running and the network filter is ON, notifications should now be blocked and won’t reach your client.

  4. Use the keys on your keyboard to navigate the menu.


  • Automatically saves your settings at settings.ini. Don’t touch it. If you do and the program crashes, delete the file, restart the program, and the program will revert to defaults.
  • If LOG BLOCKED ACTIVITY is ON, the program will log information about dropped packets in debug.log. If you want to watch the log in real-time, you can use something like mTail.


  • This program does not modify the SocialClub Overlay, nor any game that runs with the SocialClub Overlay enabled. In theory, this means that this program does not violate Rockstar’s Terms of Service.
  • This program does not contain any reverse-engineered code, nor any code that would violate Take-Two’s IP or Copyright.
  • Creating this program did not require any decompilation nor decryption of any program or service provided by or related to Rockstar Games / Take-Two Interactive.


  • This app provides three different filtering heuristics that all target different points in the chain of communication between your client and the SocialClub Overlay.

  • Filter #1 DROP_INC_80 is the fastest and impacts performance the least but you may be flooded with notifications when the filter is turned off.

  • Filter #2 DROP_CLIENT_POST is enabled by default as the end result is probably what most users are looking for.

  • Filter #3 DROP_LENGTHS is the most complicated and still under development and therefore not recommended.

Build Instructions


  1. Install Python 3 (3.8+ recommended)

    • If this is your first and only Python install, enabling the check-box Add Python to PATH will make the next step easier.
  2. Run the following commands in a command prompt:

:: Make sure to open the command prompt in / navigate to your local repo directory before running these commands.
C:\Users\Speyedr\socialclub-notification-blocker> pip install requirements.txt
:: If 'pip' is not recognised (i.e. it wasn't added to PATH) then you will need to provide the absolute path to pip.exe, e.g.
:: Make sure to check your exact install directory (your version number or bundle may be different)
:: C:\Users\Speyedr\socialclub-notification-blocker> "C:\Program Files\Python 3.8\Scripts\pip.exe" install requirements.txt
C:\Users\Speyedr\socialclub-notification-blocker> python build
:: Again, if python is not recognised then you will need to use the absolute path instead:
:: C:\Users\Speyedr\socialclub-notification-blocker> "C:\Program Files\Python 3.8\python.exe" build
