I played for 10 minutes and just wanted to change my y axis settings but some rear end in a top hat in an armored firebird killed me within seconds of spawning every time. I died 15 times in 10 minutes to the same rear end in a top hat. he was immune to the swarm of cops that was glued to him at all times too. i'm level three!

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.

Has anyone who's playing on PS4 also played Midnight Club LA on PS3? I'd like to hear about how the 1st-person driving in GTA compares to the 1st-person in Midnight Club.

I stopped playing MC:LA because after a certain point it became crushingly difficult. A lot of this (for me) turned out to be because the 3rd-person camera views don't let you read traffic very well because it's set low and you can't see over your car.

Playing it in 1st-person, though, and the game is a lot more accessible. If 1st-person driving in GTA is similar I could really get behind it.

So, how do I play with other crew members?

Should there be a list of us all?

I don't want to be alone.

I don't know if it's the same across the board, but on PS3 bring up the start menu > online > crews > LLJK > view members, then pick someone from the list that's online and select "join session".

You (could possibly) join their session. If it isn't full of goons, invite some more from the list.

Or you can launch a job from online > jobs > host job, then invite people from the mission screen.

E: if you do that, make sure matchmaking is closed so that pubbies don't barge in

For those of us who didn't grind levels nor money, the best way to speed it up is seriously to endlessly run missions ... and trying to avoid lengthy races.

If you're interested in levels more than money, running races by yourself is a pretty good way to earn RP. There are plenty of custom races that will reward two or three-thousand RP and take about 4 - 6 minutes.

To compare, many popular missions only give about 1200 RP before kill / objective bonuses and take 6 - 15 minutes.

I don't really know what to do in gtaonline. I found a helicopter and stole it..is there anywhere to store it like in sp?

No. If you want your own helicopter you have to buy it and it is hell of expensive.

The first thing you should do is head to the GTAO goon crews thread. Link your Social Club profile there and someone will invite you to LLJK. Then you'll have people to play with who can feed you high-level missions and poo poo.

MeinGott, I accepted your invite, and it's loading, but jesus christ it's been like 10 minutes of loading while in the clouds... what the poo poo gently caress drat. They need to fix this. Right now this game is the biggest waste of time. I mean that literally. There is so much time wasted.

protip: if you're stuck in the overhead cloud-cam for more than like 1 minute, just sign out of PSN and load back into single-player. You'll save yourself seven minutes.

I don't know how it is on current-gen, but last-gen is a crapshoot if you're trying to either:

Join GTAO before loading into SP
Join friends or crew from SP
Accept MP invites from SP

You essentially have to let single-player load, then start a friends-or-crew-only online session before trying to do anything else.

That's how it works on PS3, anyway. Once you're signed out, as soon as you close the XMB it kicks you back to SP.

That also sounds like poo poo, tbh.

Don't deathmatch, it sucks asses. In fact, don't do any competitive mission types aside from races. You'll get all the PvP you want (and all the PvP you don't want) in free-roam. You will be non-consensually PvP'd.

The Turismo R is up there with them too, not quite as fast as the Zentorno but it sticks to the road a bit better. I usually pick that or the Zentorno when doing races where I can't use my custom car.

A lot of the custom races I run specifically say "no Turismo" because it's barely a supercar and can't make the jumps spanning 2 city blocks so it is garbage.

Wheany posted:

I was starting to realize that myself.

How does the matchmaking work, does it just invite people in the same session, or people from other sessions as well? Because I can see that if the pool of players the invites are sent to is max 30(?), getting a decent 10-player match to happen can be difficult.

If you're talking about selecting auto-invite in a mission / race lobby, it does a few different things. It sends out invites to the friends and crewmembers of the people already in the pre-match lobby as a priority, then I think it invites people from the "skill-matched players" list. I don't remember if it invites others in the session that you launched to mission from, though.

If your matchmaking is set to open, it will also allow on-call players and quick-join players to find your lobby.

The way this works can be confusing. Let's say you join DM that only has one other person in it (the host). They select "auto-invite and play". Everyone on your friends and crew lists who are playing will receive an invite, but it will say it's from you. They may not actually receive the invite until after the lobby has filled and the game has launched. This will annoy the poo poo out of your friends when they try to accept "your" invite.

I hate the auto-invite and never use it. If you get an invite from me you can be 99% sure I went through the list and invited you personally, and I will try to give you at least a minute or two to join.

Im not fully sure I understand the requirements to not fail a stunt jump.

You have to land where they want you to land. They don't tell you where that is. If you're hitting a jump at full speed and landing it but still failing the stunt jump, I guess try jumping shorter?

For example, those big ramps at the airport that look like some kind of advertisement require you to land on the roof of the parking structure. I only learned this by accident while trying to backflip a motorcycle off one and landing on the roof.

Normally I'd have cleared the roof and died when the bike landed.

I think this is pretty close to done. Final thoughts, cars to add to the notable list, bad opinions?


"What's the best car for racing?" Well, here's what the thread thinks. Best and second best options.
  • Super - Zentorno | Entity XF
  • Sports - Massacro | Elegy RH8
  • Muscle - Blade | Gauntlet/Dominator
  • Sports Classics - Monroe | Z-Type
  • Sedans - Schafter | Stainer
  • Compacts - Blista | Issi
  • Coupes - Exemplar | F620
  • SUVs - Huntley S | Don't race SUVs. Don't even buy one. No, really.
  • Off-Road - Motorcycle: Sanchez | 4-Wheel Option: Bifta -- Both have serious pros and cons; this depends a lot on the race and your personal style.
  • Motorcycles - Akuma | Bati 801/801RR

I know this is from a couple pages back but I haven't had a computer for the last few days. Just wanted to add that the Ruiner is also competitive in the muscle car class and will easily overtake a Blade on the straights.

In the sports class, I'm not sure if the Jester has been competitive since the Massacro was released but it does have a mod that makes it bulletproof from the rear and it used to be one of the best in class. It's an excellent free-roam car and might still be a useable racer.

Blade doesn't have the best straight line speed in the class, but it's maneuverable in the turns esp. in tight corners and hairpins.

I don't disagree, just saying that the Ruiner can hold it's own against the Blade, Dominator, and Gauntlet. It's also pretty agile.

Is there a trick to joining up with friends on PSN? "Join Friend" seems to only work 50% of the time and that's only if you want to risk waiting through 3 hours of loading screens.

Launch single player, then start > online > play GTA online > closed friend session

Once you're in your session, either invite a bunch of people or join whoever's online through start > friends > (friend)> invite / join session

I noticed something today that I don't remember happening before. I launched a mission from a friends-only session. After the mission I returned to free roam, but instead of putting me back into a friend-only session it had started an invite-only session.

I've had it happen twice. I guess check your lobby types to make sure you're where you think you are. On last-gen versions, pressing down on the d-pad brings up the player list in the upper left corner and it tells you what kind of session you're in.

I mean I will do pubbie racing because I can win those regardless, but no real racing.

I always think that, until I race and it's catch-up + slipstream and I get run off the course. If I host pubbies so that I can turn that stuff off / go no contact then they just drop out. gently caress pubbies is what I'm getting at.

No contact races are okay but it's much more satisfying to win a race from behind because some dumb poo poo tries to ram you off the road and spins themselves out. Or when it's a tense situation like two cars side by side at full speed, but neither one trying to ram the other first.

It probably is more satisfying but I don't win races so it doesn't matter

Haha yeah this was no. Basic TV, late 90's maybe, regular rca inputs. Tried different settings, also messed with the TV picture, might have missed something.

Yours is probably 720, no?

I'm not actually sure. It was a repo that was being used as a floor model. It wasn't advertised as being HD. I found out after getting it home that the display was faintly warped in the upper-left corner and that it showed faint, constant, horizontal white lines while using my PS2. After finding out that they wouldn't replace it or pay for an in-home technician because it was technically used, I kind of didn't pay attention to it for the next 10 years.

I know that having my PS3 hooked up through component made the text readable, but I didn't bother to test the different settings to see if it would display at 720. I'd check but I think someone is borrowing my multicable.
