I never thought of killing myself, I usually just call them off via Lester. But the former would work just as well.

It's too bad voice doesn't get recorded too because the whole room busting out laughing was just as funny as the incident itself. You guys are fun. My race went completely downhill after that. It's too hard to drive and laugh at the same drat time.

So here's a question. My gaming group is likely largely going to pick this up and we want to hit up the multiplayer pretty quick after release on PC, since I've heard GTA Online will be a day 0 thing on PC, and I'm wondering if there's any good quick start guides by those already experienced in the PS4 version?

Also, anyone know much on how the PC servers will work? Are they self-hosted or..? We want to setup a first person only one, since I've read that's been confirmed as an option on PC.

This will sound dumb, but how do you add crew members to friends list? I was on yesterday doing a few missions with some goons (particularly sgt_driveby or something like that) and I just kind of hope I get job offers from goons.

Ah I am UK based although that said on Friday/Saturday nights I'm usually on after I get back from the pub which would be EST 7-10pm. Work also finishes for Christmas on Friday for 2 weeks so I should be able to get some time in then too.

It's not dumb...took me a bit to figure it out too.

When you are in a session with them (mission, lobby, etc) pull your phone up, they'll be in your contacts. Click on their name and select friend request.

I am dumb, but the way I've been doing it is going into the PS4 friends tab and searching through the names of guys I've played with recently and picking the ones I know. Once you get into a party with goons it's easy, you can add to your friends list by clicking on names. Feel free to add me, PSN is Thaxxas.

It only works on certain missions, so I always forget to even try it. Any of the "steal a cargobob from the military base" missions won't let you use it, but some of the lower level ones do.

This:

quote:

Being a heist leader has advantages and disadvantages. On the upside, Lester contacts the leader directly when thereís news of a job and itís up to the leader to invite players into the crew, assign positions, pick outfits and allocate each playerís cut. On the other hand, the heist leader will need to personally front the set-up costs in order to successfully pull off the heist.

Unlike the leader, other crew members get a cash payout for each prep mission, while the leader wonít receive their cash until the finale is complete.

...almost guarantees not doing heists with pubbies. The potential for gently caress ups seems pretty likely.

You won't find it for PS3 unfortunately. It was on 360 and now PS4. I wish I had saved that race so you can see its horror, which is just basically shouts of frustration every 10 seconds.

Full on belly laugh followed by gasping for breath hilarious and there was many more funny moments last night too. It was a good night.

Maybe, maybe not. I thought it was a new contact of sorts or someone working for someone like Madrazzo since Lester seems to be one heist and Ron another.

We should make it a rule that during that race, one person must use a monster truck while everyone else has to be on a Sanchez.
