I don't understand why that places you in bad sport lobbies... Isn't the point of the game to blow up ppls ****?

The best way to get races is through the join job menus, although often I get kicked as i'm too pro (or they're racing with friends). Only problem is I race to win and make cash but the vast majority of random races people make are -EV even for the people who make them as they don't know what they're doing.

They said last week that the first installment would be out before the end of the week but obv it didn't happen. Hopefully this week I guess.

How you get so good at golf? I have trouble with overshooting. Like I'll be on the fairway from 75 yards out w no wind and set it to 75 w the right analog and it'll overshoot it be like 10 yards. That's for a hole that is not downhill from where I'm shooting at.
Hard to say. It was pretty easy for me right off the bat. My first round I shot -4 or something and I didn't even know you could change shot types until I had played ~15 rounds.

But it's all about making adjustments. With the pins in the same location you end up having similar shots putts over and over. Just make mental notes of things like you've described and adjust next time around.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Bad thing is that you can't join anyone's missions Kruze. That sucks, if you could be a bad sport and still get invited to races or missions it would be cool.

yeah that is the only problem

i feel the cost of blowing up peoples vehicles is punishment enough....

it feels like it should be a part of the REAL game

i just got back to good/regular sport lobby, and its cool to be back with my IRL friends but i miss being able to blow up peoples rides if i felt like it...

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

It's because you were probably blowing up people's modded cars too. I think I read it lasts two days.

That's me. Are you timbeck? Playing missions with you guys now, having fun. Felt like a dumbass when I got lost in the tunnels and knew you guys were spectating

I got lost on the docks/port yesterday and couldn't figure out how to get back to the highway. Felt like a such an idiot because I had another person in the passenger seat. Kept on hitting dead ends. He eventually bailed out of the car, lol.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Sorry for a copy/paste job from a post I made on another forum but I'm starting to get desperate.

Basically the issue is: I cannot do anything online aside from starting up a solo session and doing free roam things like robbing stores and building skills.

I've tried: joining a game when I get an invite, joining a crew game in all variations, joining a random game in all variations, creating a new character, swapping between characters, using an invite only game, joining friends in all variations, entering the circles for races, activities, missions, etc. in solo mode, and uninstalling/reinstalling update 1.04.

Literally nothing works. Has anyone had this problem and been able to get past it?
I also really don't want to sound like a jerk while asking for help but when I've mentioned it to people I get a lot of "oh yeah that happened to me the other night while I was playing with x. we got an error message". No, I have never been able to join another player but can sit around by myself in solo online.

I'll love you forever if you can help

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Was playing a mission last week where it's go get x from y and deliver it to z. Jumped in the passenger seat of a car another player on the mission was driving bc no other cars around. Think we had to go to sandy shores.

This guy proceeded to drive like a maniac. Plus he wasn't even going where we were supposed to. He's just wrecking into ****, driving in circles and ****. I jump out and have to run to the location bc there's no cars around. I get killed eventually and spectate that idiot and he's finally at the spot but just running around like an idiot. Was the most tilting **** ever. /rant

I am superb in the helicopter with the missiles and consequently got thrown in bad sport - it sucked

I'm finding the game becoming stale now but mostly because other ppl are so boring / suck at online

The thing w gta games, ime, is that they're fun for a while then start to feel stale like you said. I love this game though, and it's first time I've played a gta game online and am loving that aspect also.

Thing that gets me to keep coming back is to do everything that is possible in the game. Online is like crack bc I'm always saying "just one more race, one more mission" and next thing I know it's like 6 hours later.

The level of detail in the sp mode and in online is astounding though. You could probably play the sp mode for hundreds upon hundreds of hours and not experience everything the game has to offer.

When you start gta v up, do you hit x so the online loads instead of the sp mode? I do this and am instantly thrown into an online game filled with other players.

Are you talking about passive mode? Or do you just not see any other players in your session? Really confused bc you should be able to accept invites or host missions/races/etc and be playing w others in the same lobby as you.

Sorry you're having trouble. Don't know what else to say..

I've tried both immediate online and going through single player on startup but neither works. If I go through the menu in single player I can load a single player online session but nothing outside of general free roam. It's really bizarre. I've started messing with my network settings through PS3 to see if I can get it to work but nothing yet. I'll try again tomorrow and hope for the best.

Yeah I may have to try that. I haven't yet because I was guessing that I'd be starting completely over but I'm not sure how things like that get stored on R*'s servers.

Did you ever do the opening mission with LAmar? I know there was a glitch in the early days of online that kept you from doing the opening mission and just threw you into an empty world

I would recommend finding the farm (located near the top right of the map) and beating the **** out of the cows and pigs.

pro tip: Hitting one animal will get the others stirred up. Often times they will find an open gate and will run down the street away from you.

Had a buddy over last night (who has played a lot more than me) and we grinded races. Went from a level 16 w/ $19k to a 22 w/ $95k.
