So I basically can only do the basic actions of the game. I can't go play golf, I can't do anything like that.
I've deleted pretty much every superfluous script from my root directory. Now I'm down to just the EPM and Native Trainer files as well as my traffic fix.
Can't find this issue anywhere else on the internet considering what I did find told me that almost nobody watches TV and that the internet issue is an anti-piracy measure to promote the use of legal copies of the game. Except I bought the GTA complete collection on Steam a year and half ago. Sooo yeah. Anyone know whats up?
EDIT: So if I start a new game and go to my apartment, I can watch TV, just not in my current saved game so that's alright. I made an alt save so I can watch tv when I want.
