Well it works but not with other players apparently. All solo. At least I can fill garages with Gallavanters and goof off solo.

e: and by that I mean it works if I create my own invite only session, if I just d-pad down, right-stick down it gets stuck joining forever. I would like to know what happened and how all the transfer issues were not detected and how failsafes apparently were not implemented.

I tried to get on a number of times last night and a number of different ways, joining crew mates, joining friends, joining randoms and joining a solo session and I couldn't get on once. Hopefully when I get home from work today things will be different but I'm not counting on it.


That's a lie. I am counting on it. plz R*

Yes - on 1.03. Just now managed to jump directly into online via square option when the game started. I am alone in a lobby again though.



I am going to try the character appearance glitch to change up my main again, then try jumping into public lobbies and missions.

It's kind of incredible that they managed to do this twice, not having learned from the initial launch of GTA:O—that, admittedly, had eleventy billion people try to join all at once. I doubt XBone/PS4 versions sold more, though.

I am sure a hacker knows all about rewarding and accomplished behavior. I mean, raping a chick with some mickeys is the same is getting laid right? Same result amirite guys? Nothing like work and not having to do it and get that sweet sweet payoff.


LLJK just had a pretty good lobby, I think there was 4 of us, out of 25 people at the most.

Just now though, the internet/game poo poo it's self, and everyone got kicked but me.


edit; So I am finding a very easy way to connect to online is connecting via the initial startup of the game. I can connect to tons of 20+ people servers, however I can't seem to connect via join friends/crews/bleh from the online menu. So for what it is worth, closing the app and reloading seems to be the only sure fire way to get into games.

Entire lobby blew up for me too. Goons and a lobby of children with nothing but tanks and rocket launchers and buzzard choppers and jets to bring the moment they die to a bullet. Forgot to turn up the USB output my voice-chat does so I heard nothing. Dull

And the framerates were murder, unacceptably bad, despite rebuilding database.

e: the lobby was mad laggardy even before the crash too, and if I were to say something critical it would be that I'm happy half the money I put on this came from my overbudgeted PayPal account and was just lying there gathering virtual dust. These framerates need a fix, it was better on the PS3 Slim in full 16p lobbies.

I'm not kicked - the lobby is frozen. I'm running around shooting and punching everyone. I can see all the blips on the map but when I get over to the players they're either gone or totally frozen. All NPC traffic is mostly gone too.

When I shoot players they just flop around but don't die. Really bizarre.

Is there a "best" for any of the weapon types? I would like to optimize my weapon wheel by dumping some poo poo, but I can't tell what's good or not anymore. Also it seems my Adder and Entity are missing. Thanks Rockstar.

My preference is AP Pistol for the pistol category (with a silenced combat pistol kept in case there's any situation where a silenced weapon is needed), Combat MG in the machine gun slot, Advanced Rifle and Bullpup Rifle in the assault weapon slot, silenced Sniper Rifle plus regular Heavy Sniper in the sniper slot, Dagger and Crowbar in the melee slot, Assault Shotgun and Musket in the shotgun slot, all of the heavy weapons but with the default weapon set to RPG in that slot, and sticky bombs set in throwables.

exact same thing happening to me. 3-4 lljk's out of 20 and mass drops every half hour or so.

The options for joining crew games in progress is greyed out. bummer. hope they fix soon.

How to be Leet Like Jeff K:

If you don't post in the thread, don't have an old goon crew as your active crew, your profile is private or nobody recognises your social club name then there is a very high chance your request will be deleted.

Also the admin interfaces for crews suck and it makes life easier if you request yourself and then post a link to your profile.

Racing with pubbies is bullshit, those fuckers will ram you right off the road when you pass them. Of course this is GTA so that sort of thing is expected, but getting PIT'd by XxXn0Sc0pE420wEEdL0RdXxX for the 58th time still gets kind of annoying. Maybe they all hate me because of my fabulous hot pink car.

I didn't even think about it, but had I known the DLC cars; Carbon RS, khamelion and Hotknife would cost money, I probably would have redeemed them on ps3 before I transferred my character. I don't particularly like the hotknife or khamelion but they are kind of nice cars.

yeah I bet the 360/ps3 playerbase is actually higher than normal right now because of people playing again either because PS4/Xbone reminded them of GTA, getting ready for a holiday gift giving event, or just whatever - but it's got a lot of people either way.

I don't have much issue on the Xbone either. Regularly getting into 20+ lobbies and have been since the first patch. Though I haven't played with a goon yet, since there are only 4 of us and that is just a shame.

You have to account for that. If you are massing them just run straight into their rear bumper at a 10 degree off angle and be done with it. That takes care of them 90% of the time. You have to bump a car a lot less violently than you think, all you have to do is break their rear tires free of traction, not knock them off the track. The vast majority of player won't throttle down and turn into the skid so they just flip and 180 and get hosed. Gentle love taps, preferably right before a corner.

If a pubbie is passing you in the normal catchup/slipstream lobby just get all the way the poo poo out of their way and let them pass, then repeat step A.
