Now that I know how to successfully enter the cheat in pause mode, I am not too concerned. Certain death is no longer a foregone conclusion :)

Wonder how long it takes before people notice this topic...

 

Anyway. I don't have any kind of problem with the 5 minute time limit, although it's strange that why it exists.

no reason for 5 minutes and people should stop bitching for people to keep it 5 minutes and to say it is fine because you make yourself look like an asshole and if you don't have any problems you should see it from the perspective for why people are complaining.

I agree or it was probably some debug feature that people consider a cheat like most games.

But in IV if you got shot to sh*t, you would have to keep entering the health/armor cheat every 5 minutes. Does it really make that much of a difference?

back when cops were easier to kill but now you got shorter amount of health and precise marksmanship to deal with from those f*cking sniper cops

The thing is, you can all complain that its bullsh*t.

But what you all forget, is that sometimes things are necessary.

 

Theres a huge possibility that they had to add the five minute timer.

 

Or they just did it to piss everyone off, either way, if they added it for a reason or just to annoy everyone, there will be no fix or a chance of* it being changed.

 

Pretty obvious

You're not speaking for the modern world you are speaking for yourself. Not everybody is upset. And GTAiv is game from the "modern world" whatever the hell that means anyways.

You don't know what everybody wants. And what majority are you speaking of? the few users on this forum who are upset? These forums that hardly represent a fraction of the global gta gamer base. Yeah I think you are using "majority" a bit too loosely.

And next people I'm sure they will change it unless they want to be big assholes and cause a spark of more people to complain about it and why the hell would a company put a cheat and remove it that just makes you teasing people causing you to be some of the biggest assholes on the planet. This is an issue since it causes more problems then it solves.

I'm just gonna go ahead and suggest maybe there's a technical reason for the limit? The invincibility cheat in RDR was pretty clitchy. Maybe the RAGE engine working with euphoria just isn't that great at sustaining a modification like that, and eventually the thing freaks out.

If that were the case, I think it makes sense for rockstar to put a set limit on it rather than leave it until the game breaks it at some random time. It's a cleaner fix and gives them control over them breaking their system.

And yes, it is breaking their system. That's what cheats do. And no, I don't think it would have been worth their time to find a way to break their engine better. It's much more important for me to focus on their game the way it is generally intended to be played, than to refine a cheat mode.

I have no idea If that's even close to why the time limit exists. But I think its a better idea to try to think of reasonable explanations for it, rather than going on angry tirades about being wronged by a company and calling them tyrannical and discrediting their work over one small extra feature that isn't even an official part of their product.

I'm not saying you're not allowed to be bummed out by it, but try to put things in some perspective before going off.

First of they are not going to change it. I can bet you on that. 

 

Secondly the forums do not represent that majority of GTA gamers.  

 

It doesn't cause any problems. Rockstar North rarely includes invincibility cheats at all, when they do they always limit it.

The forums represent the people expressing the issue and is major it is also a place that rockstar checks on to hear the global views. It does cause problems and make people pissed and people want invicibility cheats so we shouldn't have 5 minute invicibility it is a tease and makes rockstars cheat coder an asshole and should be brought on by global attention. They should change it and we should voice that.

"Biggest assholes on the planet."

Really? Because of a cheat code in a video game not working the way you want? This is what I mean about perspective...

Rockstar doesn't check the forums. Unless you have proof that they do that's just your assumption.  If anything their feedback comes from their own site in which their user base out numbers this forum's user base damn near million to 1. So you are wrong there. 

 

Some people are pissed but not everybody so it's not as major as you think.

They do even moderators of this site has confirmed so. This is major because this is the place that represents the issue the most and where people are even aware of it besides the cheat sites.  Only some people are aware of the issue and those people are mostly here to express it.

To be fair, they probably have someone skim the fan sites now and then, but it's not going to be super in depth and thorough.

No, I don't have proof, because only rockstar knows their business practices, but I do know how PR works.

Do you think there are people out there that think.. "Hmm an invincibility cheat would be great, but hey, why not limit it so I have to keep on putting the code in every 20 minutes. Better still why not reduce it to f*cking 5 minutes so it really pisses me off"?

 

I don't think ANYONE who would choose to use the invincibility cheat would wish it to be timed. If people have had enough of the cheat then they can disable it whenever.

 

Imposing a 5 minute limit is just mean.

 

The reason won't be technical. If it was then the time would vary depending on other factors. We could enable the cheat and then never really use it, but it's still limited to 5 minutes. If it was a way of reclaiming resources then the time would vary depending on how bogged down the system got.

No I expect people to understand that Rockstar North has never included an unlimited invincibility cheat in any of their games. They either don't include or they limit it. That's how they have always done it. that's probably how they will continue to do it.

B. having to pay for actual cheat with no time limit

 

 

 

C. f*cking f*ck no god mode!

But in IV if you got shot to sh*t, you would have to keep entering the health/armor cheat every 5 minutes. Does it really make that much of a difference?

 

 

Yes it does. in IV it was merely a matter of bringing up your phone and selecting the cheat you wanted - as easy and user friendly as it gets. Unlike V which has implemented GTA SA's cheat system complete with the frustrating button mashing. Which is a nuisance, but that goes without saying.
