I just lost 7 levels and $80K because my game didn't save. I didn't even turn off my xbox, just switched to single player for a few hours and now it has all reverted my GTA Online character from yesterday.......this patch is f*cked.

That popped up for me as well, and after leaving the multiplayer and then returning to it later, my rank has reverted back to what it was when the patch was released, and any money I spent or earned, and any weapons I purchased disappeared as well. C'mon Rockstar...

It still fails, even though it says it was successfull. Just avoid GTAO untill this gets fixed. No progress will be saved atm.

When the initial online problems started I was patient. I knew a huge project like GTAV would have some teething issues in the first week or so. But it's been three weeks since the release of GTAO and it's still plagued with connection issues, it's getting extremely boring now waiting for screens to load and being backed out of online because of 'cloud' issues. We spent our hard earned money on this game and Rockstar are just taking us for a ride.

I'm getting really frustrated with GTAO now

This is how GTAO works from how I gather:

Certain information is stored on Rockstar's "cloud" servers. This information includes your character (rank, possessions etc.), most jobs/missions and things like information about friends and crews. For some unfortunate people (including me and you, apparently), the connection to the cloud servers is unstable. During the time that the connection is down, you can't:

 

- Enter multiplayer

- Start most jobs/missions

- Switch between sessions/accept invites

- See information about your friends on the "Friends" tab of the Start menu

- Look at the Snapmatic gallery in the Start menu

- Save the game

 

I believe what the patches did was make your game more stable, even when the connection to the servers is down. Before, if you accepted a game invite during an outage, you had the chance of being thrown back to single player (causing you to lose progress and not being able to enter multiplayer again for some time). That almost never happens anymore. Another thing the latest patch did is make it so the game tries to save more often and give feedback about whether or not that save was successful. So if the connection to the servers is down, it should repeatedly come up with "Save unsuccessful". During this time, you shouldn't exit multiplayer in any way, as that will likely cause you to lose progress. Wait until the all caps message "SAVE SUCCESSFUL" has come up. This means that the connection to the servers was up when the game tried so save and you should be able to safely exit multiplayer (preferably using the character selection or through the Start menu -> Online -> Exit).

That does not work. You will still lose your progress. If you start seeing "saving failed" or "save successfull" messages, that means that there's something wrong with the servers. Normally, if everything is working, you shouldn't see any messages about saving other than the spinning circle.

Me too, although at some point it said SUCCESFUL SAVING. So i'm just waiting until that happens and then turns it off.

I never had this before the update so I guess that its informing us as they intended & is now working properly. I had this happen twice yesterday, the 1st time it saved in less than a minute after popping up the message but the 2nd time was different, i found it wouldn't save until I drove into my apartments garage. May have been a coincidence I don't know but I carried on playing for hours and my character seems up-to date according to the social club site.

Same thing happened here.

 

I earned some money and RP from a couple games of Wave 10 survivals. I also changed/bought new clothes. I switched to SP as I wanted a little break from playing - I also thought that would save my game like Rockstar says - left it for about an hour - maybe less. I then switched back to my character via the character wheel and I noticed I'm in my old clothes and don't have the money, or RP I earned from Survival. Before I left there was no message saying saving failed, but when I came back and joined a game I saw the message saying that the saving failed. -.-

I had this issue last night. I don't know if it's worse today, but it told me save failed about 12 times while I was showering and sleeping in my apt. I kept doing those things because those activities kept triggering the save message. Eventually, it said save successful. I hope it was successful because today, I can't even get online.

 

Oh, also, before that, I had played and gotten like 1 level up, earned about 30k. A friend was trying to play with me, but couldn't join my sessions, so I tried to join his. Never worked, but when I got back in my session, I'd lost what little progress I'd made. So I built back up and that's when the showering and sleeping fails happened.

Got the same issue right now. As soon as I try to join missions I just get an automatic mission failed. I'm on PS3 and this only started this morning. I was playing fine today 10/19/13 at 2-3am but it stopped working by the time I woke up.
