so R* is basically just hoping that after a while people give up on getting online?

congrats to those that got to play, I spent another few hours today between loading screens and the dashboard. somehow after all this time I still forget to switch to online mode at the first loading screen

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

envelope, are you connected wirelessly?

im using an ethernet cord, from modem to ps3, and whenever the "launching" icon appears and nothing happens for 5 minutes, i just unplug the ethernet and it takes me back to normal story mode. this is so much better than hitting the ps3 button, quitting the game and waiting for it to reload.

the only problem is i didnt realize this until the end, and like yourself i also wasted tons of time on loading screens.

I have an ethernet connected to my laptop (that's connected to wifi) and am playing on 360.

unplugging the ethernet is a great idea, thanks sir

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

With the new update I've twice had to dashboard from the "you need to connect to the net before we can load your game" of THE OFFLINE story mode. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

I'm getting trolled sooooooo hard on the last race.
Spoiler:


Probably going to wait online till I'm done with 100% (which I don't recommend unless you feel like you have to; I haven't enjoyed the collecting part or the mission parts (tho the illegal weapons thing was ok).

Pretty glad the social club has a chart of what you have to pick up and where it is regarding collecting some things. Naturally thanks to GTA IV I wasn't picking them up so I wouldn't go crazy trying to find ones I already had later when going through a guide. (tho I'm not seeing everything on it)

well maybe the only bonus is that I keep seeing new trevor stuff when I
switch over but 0 out of the other 2.

Wasn't surprised by the struggles of online (tho somewhere I read they spent 250+ mil on this game, what no server budget?), but having to dashboard instead of simply backing out is bothering me.

Kinda weird to see "best time 1.5 millionth place" sure they're all first completions but still.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Finally got through the first race in online mode on PS3!

While going through the first mission after that, I get logged out from psn for some reason and I'm booted from gta online again. Reload, and now I'm trapped in some instance where I hear some people on headsets arguing in German, and I'm unable to materialize, move, or do anything.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Haven't had time to play in a few days, when it asks me to title update for the online stuff should I just decline it until I actually feel like playing online? (like, is it gonna **** with my attempts to play offline too as some ppl have said?)

On 360. I did the update and have only been playing single player and I haven't had a problem yet. The update fixed the garage glitch that was causing people to lose cars so I wanted to do it.

I've not had much chance to play so I am quite still early on in the story mode but I will put it in spoiler anyway just in case some only just bought the game.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

When online doesn't load or it is taking too long, if youre on the ps3 then just sign out of PSN and sign back in

That's what's most frustrating for me. I'd rather they just not let me on then give me messages saying to "get to the trigger," have everything seem to run smoothly, but not have the trigger.

I tried to shotgun the **** out of Lamar after one too many "Hey, you s'posed to be going that way."
