Jack Tripper's wingman.

Besides issues connecting/staying connected to crewmates, both online and SP have worked pretty much flawlessly for me. I can connect to online sessions pretty much every time, but they most often don't include crew.... and if they do, they usually don't last long in the session before they get disconnected.
I must be lucky.
And I hope I didn't just jinx it.

Anyone on PS4 feel like running a string of Jobs? Not picky about which... just knowing how long it takes to load IN and OUT of jobs with randoms (who usually suck) is a waste of too much time...

LLJK here. ILL_MITCH


[edit] Any recommendations on what aircraft I should buy for maximum funsies? Ideally in the sub 1-million range. (Ideally, Ideally one of the ones in the sub 600,000 range.)

That was my thought too. But I wonder if it is decidedly less agile than the Mallard 1-seater. You know?

You can hang off a Dodo? That sounds pretty awesome. The Vestra should be a 4-seater, then it'd be a perfect purchase airplane. Good mix of speed, agility, passenger capacity. At 2 it's pretty sad on that last one -- the plane it's modeled on seats up to 7, so no excuse.

but really the only air vehicle worth buying is the Buzzard.

I'd like to ultimately have a buzzard, a plane, a slick car, and my Déclassé Saber. (Right now I just have the Saber.) (and 1.3 million dollars)

If I could get a refund just for GTAO ($30) I would. It's like they also hosed up the netcode massively. I wrap up work and decide to get into a lobby and goof off to eventually hop into a random job co-op BECAUSE ONE DAY THAT FUNCTION WILL WORK but it crashes and I lose interest. I dump two bullets from a sniper rifle into a guy a block away and he's fine, but he plinks me to death with an assault rifle long after I've turned away. I later turn and BRRT a guy with my mini-uzi, he moves on for a while before dropping dead from my bullets. Are lobbies P2P hosted?

At least the SP hasn't bugged out for me, and I know it will get at least one expansion of fine quality sometime.

This makes me want to upgrade right now because I assume the Dodo is not in the last gen version, or is it? Is it tricky landing this on the water? Is it possible to crash and explode on water? Can it even land on water?

No. Since I bought the game of I use the triggers I have to like really squeeze them down in order to fire. Sometimes multiple times

I would keep saving for a buzzard and just steal planes from the airport in the mean time.

e: it's just way more usefull for doing missions or hauling goons around. Planes are cool and all but if you aren't in a Lazer you'll probably just get blown up by one or a buzzard.

I enjoy metal because of its dark, creepy, intense aesthetic.



I think my least favorite part of Online (other than the connection issues) is how in missions, you always get shot by enemies you can't even see before you're half dead. Often they don't even show up on the minimap until you get close, so sometimes it looks like the coast is clear when there's actually ten guys waiting around the corner. It's something you get used to and know to expect when you play missions, but still pretty frustrating because you just end up hiding behind cover, trying to get the dudes to come out to the open, and hoping they don't blindfire snipe you from a mile away.

edit: and while I'm complaining about stuff... why do pubbies insist on doing the Down the Drain and Criminal Records races over and over again instead of, you know, the ones that are actually fun and interesting to drive? (likely answer: because they're the easiest courses, you barely need to drive the car, and it's easy to pass someone with catchup/slipstream and PIT them off the road)

Fair enough. But let's be honest here... I'm a dad of a 2 year old. I get a fair amount of gaming time at night and sometimes when I work (I work from home...) but how long is it going to take me to raise 1.3 million? The leveling will take a bit I suspect, but not THAT much.

I'm more worried about capital.

If stuff is working properly and you are a good driver, then I think it should take a handful of hours of races or missions.

Did they already patch the 250k challenges? You could get a million per 24 hours with that easily.

I don't want to be a dick because what you're dealing with sucks, but the 360/ps3 launch was hosed for basically a month straight, everyone should've expected this because Rockstar. It didn't even let everyone make a character for days, much less be stable enough to not lose progress/wipe characters/generally be screwed up.

Pretend online doesn't exist, play the rest of SP, come back in a couple weeks. It's definitely better that way.

also $30 refund haha yeah. right. In Rockstar Logic, you bought GTAV for $60 and Online is free to play, that's why shark cards are okay because you didn't pay for the base game!!!

To add to this, you can only do one every 24 "real world" hours and they are often not clearly named. Click through until you see one that has 250,000 as the bet, and make sure it's Criminal Records.

I reluctantly log on to try that 250k challenge poo poo, get tired of waiting forever for playlists to load, go out and ride around, pick up a goon who gets bounced out by a crash and turned into an AI running away in panic. Pull into home garage and hey where's the blue spot?

Barely functional ghost town for the few of us who weren't crashed out.


e: AI performed cleaner than ever without any hint of lag during this so no easier way of stealing tanks and jets




I was here for the original launch of the Online, I lost level 15+ characters three times, I know
I just hope RockStar have excuses for why it's so busted.

When you are on the respawn screen hit triangle to respawn in passive mode and be immune to others.

play for a few hours with goons and you should have enough money to buy a low-end 2-car garage or poo poo hole apartment that you can spawn into. You only need like $100k, which sounds like an unobtainable sum for someone at level 3 but if you're handheld by some high-level bros and brophinas you'll make it faster than you thought you could.

Get podcasts or audiobooks and play golf like mad.

e: wikia one says

quote:

Strength: Your physical power and resilience. Boosts melee damage, speeds up ladder climbing, improves sporting agility, and reduces damage taken from various sources. Increase by scoring hits in melee combat and practicing sports. For every 20 punches you land, the strength skill will raise by 1%. Killing cows on the grapeseed farms gives you almost the same amount of percent for every 20 punches. Playing sports such as Golf or Tennis will assist in enhancing this skill.

How to max Strength in a single sitting: just play one really short hole of golf over and over again, one with a really low Par. I think there's a Par 2 hole? Anyway that one is great, I did it for like an hour and got to max.

It just randomly picks 6 jobs to put on the voting screen. Sometimes there's a mission in there, but the missions are way out numbered by other jobs. It's extremely annoying when they don't put any jobs of the type you just played in the vote screen. Like when you just finished a race and it doesn't even give you an option to vote to play another race.

It's like something that should be common sense, but Rockstar didn't figure out that people probably would want to keep playing the same job type.

Yeah, that's really annoying. There should always be 1/2 of the same mission type in the voting screen. I think 2.

do a mission, get 2 missions, an LTS, a race, a dm, parachute, don't care.
