okay so here's an update...i did take-two's 12 steps for fixing gta. I didn't disable the flicker filter though. Anyway, the game's working perfectly! I just hope that a patch or something can be done to restore the ability to have all those options turned on...i really liked the auto-save feature...and i kinda also bought gta4 for the awesome multiplayer...

just got off the phone with take-two to see if anything has changed. Oddly the tech i spoke with was surprised the 12 steps were on the internet. Nothing has changed they are still recommending these steps. When asked what the problem was he stumbled over his own breath and said well we think its an internet issue but we are unable to determine at this time.... a patch seems far away.

mercie_blink.gif This is just madness! I have NEVER had a freeze since I bought it, I mean not even for a second!, I think it may be because it in my room near the window which I have open during the day. And my room never has the sun facing it so my room is nice and ice cold.

Not trying to rub it in peoples faces, but maybe keeping your PS3 dust free, and in a very well ventilated area is a solution. confused.gif

I unplugged my ethernet cord and have'nt had a problem ever since. I remember It was freezing like crazy when the ethernet cord was plugged in; I would only be able to play like 1 or 2 hours before it would freeze up.

How about they do their own testing to figure out the issue with their game. Or did we all pay $60 to test for them?

Hi, I registrated just to tell you that it has something to do with the internet connection.

I had a freeze while playing multiplayer and had to turn the PS3 off, after that my last savegame could not be loaded. I had to delete it and play another savegame which wasnt that old.

So I removed my ethernetcable and no freezes again.

But this cannot be a solution, because multiplayer is not playable then.

The problem is that I remember I played before like 20 hours with my ethernetcable and no freezes.
It must be some combination with internet and gta multiplayer dont know.

When mine froze on the Loading screen, I did step one then re-installed it. It's fine, for now although it froze twice in the same cut scene =/ Working for now.

I had a random freeze where the game stopped for 30 secs or so.
The backside where the heat comes out was facing the wall and I turned it so it had more room to spread the heat. Didn't have a single freeze since then.

If you have the opening cutscene freeze none of these "tips" will work. The fact that they even suggested these things tells me that Rockstar is just grasping at straws and is clueless as to what the problem is or what the fix might be.

This is what happened to me...did everything... nada. My save is on a SD card if there ever is a way to fix the problem, But it seemed every file was corupt: profile , save data. Deleted the install, re-installed, new profile... old save, nothing. Tried a couple of different things. rampage_ani.gif

I was at 22.7%. I would rather start over then disable all my functions on the PS3 (80 gig). I play more than one game... even with GTA4 out. devil.gif

Alright, I haven't had a single problem with freezing or anything, I have an 80GB PS3. But, I just want to know why the "flicker filter" option isn't in my display options...?

Why are people deleting their game saves? It's so easy to back them up on a USB stick. nervous.gif

I think it's something for SD users only.
