Upon Playing GTA online surprisingly and unexpectedly an update file came through the pipeline.
Hoping for snow
I think the snow was added on the last update their probably just waiting to deploy it, most likely on Christmas Day and probably will happen randomly like rain currently is.
"additional fixes for GTA online to improve stability" how hard can it be to say it, instead they screen shot the answer and speculated with random BS so it looks important :)
Snow is there already. I was playing last night and I saw snow in story mode
LMAO its the truth. North Yankton
I played it first thing this morning (5.30am GMT) and it was snowing online, throwing snowballs at NPCs is FAR too much fun! lol
I hope it fixes multiplayer. I usually can play in a full lobby 5-10 minutes before I'm kicked for unknown reasons.
@Adrieono I was hoping for that too and we might just get it check the update i posted.
I fixed this problem by updating my routers firmware to the latest version. I could only join a room with 5 or 6 people and get kicked after a few mins, now after updating I can join 20+ lobbys
How do you update your routers firmware?
you have to login to your router by using your internet browser and type in your routers ip address into the address bar, the IP address is different for most routers so google your routers name for the IP. If you know nothing about routers then it's probably not a good idea to try and update it since it is possible to brick your router if the firmware does not install properly or you try and install the wrong one.
I don't get kicked but takes forever to join......sometimes im in a lobby by myself too.....
Same, either I'm by myself or I get kicked after 5 minutes.
Wow! It seems like the "kicking" got worse since the update (PS4) -- dare i say out of control! I never had it as bad as getting kicked in a few minutes thing though i did experience the lobby by myself thing, however the kicking was inevitable and consistent, sometimes very consistent on some days but now I can't even stay in the lobby! I tried about 10-15 times!
Confucious say: Those who are in game lobbies by themselves are master-waiters.
Did you DMZ your console through the router? I had that same problem til i did that
I tried to DMZ but I stepped on a landmine.
Dude! I had to jump through hoops to get mine to work. Had to bridge my comcast modem (which deactivates the router function) and hardline my modem into my netgear router. Then LAN into my ps4 from my netgear. Then had to portforward for my ps4s static IP address AND (what I think was the kicker) enable DMZ for my ps4s IP address. All this mind you, and I'm not really a tech guy. About a week of trial and error and asking rockstar support for some guidance. They gave me a list of things to try. Youtubed the port forwarding stuff. Runnin solid now! Feels great. Couldn't even find a populated world before this
Hoping for snow, but gladly take stability.
i think the update was to remove the Challenges glitch, people were making millions a day... not sure tough it might still be there. as for the (kicking out) issue, i didn't encounter that since 1.20 ...
I didn't get a update on xb1
You probably did while you were asleep.
Obviously another patch to fix bugs, why can't they just release games that aren't full of bugs these days ?
I much prefer this over games shipping with games breaking bugs that will never be fixed. See xbox ps2-1 s/nes n64 cube etc for reference
Oh i agree. But let's face it, game devs are using patches as an excuse to release broken games these days. Games are full of bugs more than ever these days.
Yes i agree some devs do come off as being lazy and using that excuse but let's not forget we've just entered into a new era of consoles. Most game engines are not optimized to their fullest for the new consoles. The brand spanking new engine for AC Unity is proof of that , the devs who worked on it didn't just say "SCREW IT, LETS MAKE IT ALL BUGGY AND MESSY" , they made what they could with an alpha engine. I suspect they anticipated the new gen systems to be much beefier in terms of specs. The game story itself seem Back to the topic , R*Games made a shit buttload of money, how can it be wrong of them to correct non game breaking bugs , GTA Online alone has received countless patches and lots of free dlc. Why such a pessimistic viewpoint on this ? I know quite a few games that have had no support post launch (the yearly sports title ea put out comes to mind) and they are not bug free , the community will tell you that much. Lots of glitches , bugs , exploits yet nothing gets done. Rinse repeat each year, It's quite insulting. Okay im moving away from the topic again , sorry ! TL;DR I agree with you but R*Games is on a completely different level then the subject you're bringing up, they give us content for free, new added content almost always = new minor, sometimes major (hasnt happened so far) bugs that require a fix. They made billions on this game ,i would rather they give back some of it to us in form of free content then go complete silent , Hype a paid DLC for a few weeks and go back to silent Rinse/Repeat mode. Merry X-Mas
OMG great news
Haven't received a patch on X1 yet either
It would have done it while you had it turned off.
In the middle of playing on Xbox 360 I joined a mission online and it started snowing. I didn't play in snow last year, and after getting to, I don't like it. Don't know why everyone else liked it so much. Oh well, it should be gone soon enough. I just don't like that its constantly snowing, they do know its possible to have snow on the ground and a bright sunny day at the same time right?
