Gameranx: "Grand Theft Auto 5 installation on a USB improves performance."
Strange the 360 is having this issue. The digital copy of the PS3 version is working fine for me.
Because you can't install the full game on PS3. On the 360 you can also install disc 2 on the HDD but you are not suppose to do that. So if you keep playing on DVD it's fine but when you install the play disc you have more pop ins.
He said the digital copy which means the full game is on his HDD.
Exactly. You'd think that the digital version would be having the same issues, but that isn't the case.
Installed it on my 250gb harddrive, havent got any problems yet.
Its mainly collision and texture issues there is a video here somewhere on this site showing what happens.
I noticed a bit of pop in the first time i played it when it shows you the beach etc but since then its been fine even at speed. My retail copy is installed as per R* guidelines on my 250GB 360S Great game.
I seriously do not see a difference in performance in this video...AT ALL EDIT: Okay after reading the article and knowing what I am looking for, I do see the little better camera panning in a few of the scenes.
I have the install disk installed on a 16gb flash disk already because i have a 4gb Xbox. Would installing the play disk to the same flash disk help or would it be to much trying to process through the usb and just slow it down?
I hope this isn't a stupid question, but why is GTA5 on 2 discs for Xbox? Is like half the game on one disc or something?
One is a install disk, with 8gb's that has to be installed (Which sucks fror 4gb Xbox owners) The other is a play disk that does not have to be installed. The problem is coming when people install the play disk (so they can play without a disk, and disk spin noise). This system is clever by R* as it saves having to switched between 3 disks while playing, like in LA Noir.
Ohh I gotcha thanks! That must be kind of annoying to do :/
How about people just play the freaking game and not cry if there are pop in textures or whatever? So what the car took a second to load, it's not like its happening to the point where it affects game play. Then again, gamers nowadays do cry over everything.
