    Yeah, it's literally not possible to buy all the properties/complete the game fully unless you do this.

    Yep. I made the mistake of getting to the last of them before reading the big red lettering on a guide saying not to do them till you have the funds from the big heist... screwed my over as I only ended up making about 6mil total, instead of the billions for each character.

    ^ good to know ^

    Oddly the MP has been solid for me even with the SP game crashing during that one mission.

    Might give that a go. Just being lazy and security conscious.

    Also can everyone else jump in and downvote/report this thread. https://support.rockstargames.com/hc/communities/public/questions/203689507-possible-fix-to-gta-5-pc-crashes-players-and-devs-please-read-

    The software it is linking too imo is fake, if it was legit software to remove malware why not link direct to the creators website? Ad Revenue for one thing, not to mention possibly stealing peoples data.

    Don't forget to do some investing before you do the hotel mission too - I finished the final heist with each character 30m+, just need to do the assassinations and play the stock markets.

    Also, at some stage there's a "Stranger" broken down on the right side of a highway on the left of the map (Forget the name, main one out of LS) who gives you a stock tip. I can't remember if you need to invest first and then do that S&F mission or after he gives you the tip.

    I've been having issues with starting the game at random, which seems unrelated to crossfire now (Even with one card physically removed);

    Code:

    For whatever reason the AMD driver seems to reset and **** the game over as above. Troubleshooting hat on tonight!

    I spoke too soon about fixing the stuttering, it still stutters, but it does seem to be doing it a little less now at least.

    Another problem I've experienced a number of times is the game just crashing, seemingly at random. Several times after the game has crashed I've noticed a message pop up on RSC but disappear again before I could read it. The game just crashed on me again but this time the message was up long enough for me to grab a screenshot. Apparently I was logged out because I'd signed in elsewhere.

    [​IMG]

    I'm fairly confident the message can't be trusted, there's no other evidence of anyone accessing the account, it's a unique password, I've used no third party launchers etc. A quick Google search shows this is a fairly common issue but it seems Rockstar are yet to do anything about it.

    I'll change the password and see if it makes any difference but I suspect it won't.

    I waited a long time to play this on PC; I'm starting to wish I'd waited longer.

    Going to have to reinstall the game from the look of things even then its not clear if itll fix the problem im havingwith startup. Rockstar have apparently escalated my issue so that probably means filled under V under the desk.
    So far ive changed the DX mode from 2 to 1.
    Updated the catalyst drivers to 15.4b
    Updated my audio drivers and dropped the bitrate right down
    repaired the game
    checksummed all the big files
    sacraficed a goat in a pentagram
    turned off statup programs
    repaired DX 11

    It still hates me I get to hearing sirens in the startup video it loops for a moment then bombs out, few others have this problem online so far ive seen no fixes.

    When the launcher comes up instantly after you crashed, social club hasn't had time to figure out that you're gone so it's seeing your old session. Just close the launcher and start it again and you'll be logged in just fine.

    Yeah it always lets me start the game again, I just noticed I was seeing that every time the game crashed and wasn't sure if it was a product or cause.

    Aye, it's annoying but at least it remembers who you are when you close and reopen it.

    I'm wonder how it's going to react to a password change, given how long it took to work it out when I changed it for GTAIV all those years ago.

    No issue with the password change, it let me straight back in with the new one.

    I can't even install it on my phone, it's too old.

    Ahh good.

    Ha, yeah, I tried that app. Holy **** is it bad. They must have outsourced it to people with no concept of the GTA art style...

    Good to know it works, thanks for confirming. :thumb:

    There was also mention of "Caida Libre" mission doing the same... I had zero issues with that one but my game had just updated to 335.1/patch2 so they may have fixed it.

    Sadly none of the fixes I've found have fixed my issue.

    Tempting fate with a re-download now. Not a huge issue, though, since I'd completed the main story missions at least.

    Ok, So, I figured we could all try and get onto a GTA Online session at some point this weekend.

    The session will be available to all crew members, So make sure you join: Here

    When?
    Saturday 25th at 20:00 BST

    Where?
    GTA 5 on PC

    The session will be open from around 19:30, And can be used for those who want to Heist, Cruise or just about anything.

    To find the session: Start GTA 5, Once in SP or MP, bring up the MP menu, and choose to 'Join Crew Members'
    [​IMG]

    The session will be locked to Crew Members only, so it will only be those who are part of bit-tech.

    I hope members can make it:thumb:

    Sam

    Troubleshooting hat thrown angrily in the bin.

    GTA V refuses to launch even after reinstalling it, cleaning the drivers completely and more thoroughly than I ever have before, applying fixes from M$ for the amdkmp driver failure.

    Every other game launches absolutely fine, I guess Rockstar don't want me to play GTA anymore!

    I swear the problems seem to be with AMD cards.
