Imagine how much more sad and lonely we would be if not for the hard work of lowtax. Here's $12.95 to his aid.

If you're on PS4 and in LLJK, once the online works again, look for my mission "Hella Copter Race 1" if you need some practice with the helicopters. It's the way I fly around in lobbies for fun, if the game had let me I would have had the markers so low that you would have been forced to go below bridges and underpasses making it even more fun, right now it's very very picky. Trying to figure out a Midnight Club route to make for cars now.

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.

How did people make those maps in cut-off areas before? I've tried entering the creator with an SP-unique area changed or opened up to no avail on PS4.

e: WELP lobby crash just as I was going to try to figure out mic VS voice balance

e: If you're on currentgen online and not finding AI cars behaving weirdly, lagging like mad, doing U-turns where they shouldn't like they're at a bath, or that the framerate regularly dies and becomes unplayable once you get up on a tallish building and hanging around doing action, I want to know your secret. I'd jam an SSD into my PS4 if that would fix it. This is ugly and not acceptable and not fun.

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.

Does strength stat still increase your max health? I read that it doesn't, but it still increases resistance to damage, which is basically the same thing. What's the fastest way to max that out?

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.

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.

I do Midnight Club 2 PC with wheel and pedal a bunch for pleasure and while GTA here is as close as it gets compared to everything including The Crew, it feels "off". If I were to try to describe it; FP-racing in GTA feels like it's first-person racing in a third person action game with better than average work put into everything about vehicles, while in Midnight Club 2 PC it's open-world perfection of tastefully arcadey-controls, you can control your drifts and sliding if you lose grip. GTA5 (current gen) is terribly slippery and loose, much more so than GTA4 PC post-handling patches.

Would race GTA5 with wheel and pedals if I had any that worked, if any at all do work.

It's not quite bullbar-cam either. I think it's the camera that makes the difference for me and why GTA5 doesn't feel quite right? Gran Turismos in-car feels fine.

When I run a network test on my NAT settings it fails every time on my PS4. I'm using wifi - absolutely can't connect it via a wired connection. I've read NAT 3 might read as failed - could that be complicating things for me when I try and play?

It could be complicating things, NAT3 is the tightest, NAT1 is the most open access the PS4 can report, and I've got issues too with this. Destiny and every single other game, no problem!


Now about farming copkills and extending earnings during missions where the final objective is to turn an item or vehicle in such as Blow It Up 2: Get in here with whatever you need to deliver carefully parked a bit inside at the wider part

Then take your sweet time, the largest threats are rappelling SWAT and not not hearing the tram

Time-consuming but functional, easy to do, very rewarding. Just gun through the railings, throw grenades and plastics.

e: Some missions need you to just sit with the stars you get during the "chase" aspect or they won't let you gain stars again, you can do anything without gaining stars until you turn in whatever (like Blow It Up 3)

Had it happen on Horse Factory when all-motorcycles.

For those of us who didn't grind levels nor money, the best way to speed it up is seriously to endlessly run missions, forget about going to lobby until you've had enough, focusing on 1player minimums that you know are doable and trying to avoid lengthy races. Doesn't harm to keep the cops after you and have a lengthy five-star standoff before finishing the last step (going to location/turning in item).
