Just sent a message to rockstar about this problem. I suggest you all go as well. The more complaints they get about it the more likely they are to prioritize fixing it. Cheers guys.

This is a very annoying occurrence yes but in this situation it is not Rockstar's fault. They Towtruck doesn't spawn in multiplayer as it clearly was not coded to work properly so why bother doing it?

It IS Rockstar`s fault for hacked files that freeze other player`s consoles, because said Rockstar can`t control it`s CLOUD SAVES . Or can`t implement a simple file check.

 

What was the point of all that Cloud sh*t for the last 27 days if hackers STILL can mess with their files, then?

But this is only XBOX, right?


Don't if this been answered in other threads yet but is this xbox only or no? Am on ps3 and would rather my console not get f*cked over.

Just to clarify is this just freezing consoles or actually causing them to be permanently bricked?

Freezing, or so the majority says.

 

You`ll need a major flaw in the actual software (OS software) or a hardware issue to brick it. Because, at the end of the day, consoles are just smaller PC`s and locking up comes only from 2 things: sh*t software or hardware failure.

I think people need to be clearer when posting that "Mudderf*ckin Tow Truk bricked my box"

 

:D

 

Just sayin

Well, for a looong time it looked like PS3 can`t be modded. It can. They even had and released the master code which can authenticate a modded PS3 as a real one to PSN and games. 

 

Any console modding requires OS changes and/or USB sticks or whatever. Any save hacking requires a piece of software, which might or might have surprises for the untrained eye.

 

So, yes, you are correct :)

In my only experience with seeing someone driving a tow truck in a normal online match (not private) nothing bad happened. Guy was towing his friend and dropped off the car so it could chase and kill me. After trading some kills back and forth, I managed to escape. Nothing bad happened. My console didn't freeze.

I don't see what the big deal is. Just fix the code.

It's only funny to you because you can hide behind the safety of the internet, pricks like you however rarely have the balls to do sh*t like this to someone who can actually retaliate.

Do something like tow a car within a few blocks of them?  Yeah that would be incredibly ballsy IRL.

This explains a bit why most of the server left when I towed them. Lame, people loved getting towed.

Not sure how this didn't freeze people but me and my friends once did a tow truck chain by towing each others tow truck. There were 4 tows chained to each other and no one froze.

I don't know how this hasn't been patched already but hopefully early next week they'll have the tow truck and probably the other glitched cars (franklins/space) gone as well

I don't understand what's wrong with having other cars such as Franklin's Buffalo... I can understand why the Tow Truck needs to be removed or fixed to work without freezing but the other cars do no harm to anyone at all.

 

If those cars were intended to be in the MP, they would've been coded in like all the other vehicles. It's obviously a problem with the coding that's making players crash when they come close to one

 

which is r* fault and not the players

 

You're right. You didn't create the problem. You're too much of a retard to mod vehicles and discover glitches. You just heard about this from someone else and are now joyfully participating in the newest way to ruin an online game for other players. 

 

 

tl;dr, you suck monkey cock faggot

Hackers and console modders should have their consoles bricked like microsoft does to xboxs.

 

Enjoy your multiple hundred dollar paper weight.

 

 

send all tow truck owners to a tow truck only lobby for several days, see how they like that lol

 

 

 

See people like this dont understand, downloading a mod onto a console is like injecting code into a game, its hacking in the purest form.Anyone who dupes said hacked item is complicit in the hack. All tow truck owners should have sony block their consoles from ever logging into any games online or the PS store.

 

You should have your console turned into a single player only box whos ID number is banned for being such a stupid f*cking cocksucker... not some bad sport punishment equal to blowing up player cars.

 

Permanent game/console destroying punishment for them.

"Motherf*cker glitched me with the tow truck, he had to die"

 

Thats why people like him don't do things like that in real life.

OK, for clarification, is it prudent to run for the hills the very second you lay eyes on a tow truck, or are there modders changing something else to have this effect? I've seen videos of people playing with tow trucks, including one where 3 guys form a trucksnake by towing each other in a line.

I hope they fix just the freezing glitch because I really want to repo every chrome Adder I see and drop it off a cliff.

According to forums and forums alone, you freeze the instant you get into "draw distance" of said vehicle. It MIGHT have something to do with it towing your vehicle or others, but all this is rumor, based on browsing in a very relaxed manner those threads.

Perhaps, if there's a large enough hole.

The tow tuck locks up everyone in lobby had it happen to my friends and I twice yesterday.  Tanks in garage now that's a bit unfair I had to pay 25k for some dudes tank then guess what he's back in it right away and was only level 30 so that needs to be fixed.
