Every time they fix something, people find a way to break another thing (that is, if R* doesn't break something else in the first place).

 

I'm torn between feeling sympathy for them or laughing at them.

Towtrucks are cars that have been modded into the online portion of the game by some players. And sadly compared to the other modded cars, it generates terrible lag for all the other players in the lobby/near it often resulting in freezes or some damage to the console (not so sure about the last part, but there seems to have been enough reports of that happening to feel cautious).

 

Rockstar removed around 1.03, but now they are back. Hence panic.

 

edit: nvm, been ninja'd bad xD

I never seen/had any problems with them. I had one and played with/against multiple tow truck users. I never froze and the lobby never cleared out when I was driving or seen one on the street so I'm not sure where this is coming from.

 

The only ones that I ever seen were the small ones so maybe that had something to do with it.

this has been a problem for a while and there was multiple threads about it for a while, if you drive close enough with the towtruck with a car attatched (not sure if it has to have a car attatched, the ones that froze me had attatched cars froze me) then it freezes your console or you lag out like crazy

I haven't seen tow trucks ever since R* put in their little fix a while ago, but damn that's a shame that they're back on the PS3 :/. I would guess It's a matter of time before they come to Xbox as well.

"Hey guys, exploiters and hackers don't do any harm to casual players."
And here we have a thread that defies that. 


Hacker/exploiter community can go shove off again. Thanks for ruining my game, hackers/exploiter. I'd ruin your life, but you're hacking/exploiting on a virtual game for no reason. Pretty sure there's nothing for me to ruin.

agreed, its hackers like these that piss me off. People with billions didnt bother me as much as the guys that bring in the tow truck or with invincibility mods and stuff. Hoping R* patches this real quick, i dont wanna get my console broken

The Tow Truckers are back... My PS3 almost got f*cked up, last 3 lobbies ive been in all have had to trucks and ive froze really bad. Anybody seen tow trucks back online?

After the 1.09 update, my PS3 would always freeze during GTAO and in SP mode. Doesn't happen at all when i play Fifa 14 online.

 

What i did was just remove all the game data for GTA V and reinstalled the game. Not the game saves, just the files in the Game Utility bit. Might have to check that though as i can't remember the exact name

Seemed to do the trick as i haven't had any problems since. Might be something to do with all the updates so really, you only need the last one to play online

 

Hope that helps

This is why my PS3 froze up during a 1v1 deathmatch two nights ago. Had to turn off my PS3. One vehicle freezing up a PS3 is pretty f*cking pathetic. I think Rockstar needs to get their sh*t together

If you're close to the truck, are you able to destroy it and prevent the occurrence? Or it's just easy to replace??

In multiplayer tow truck not supposed to be in the game so when they hook up another car to it the truck code changes a different vehicle code one which freezes anyone game that come into render distance of the tow truck completely freezing up your game. This happened back in the early days of online. And it was thought the older gen ps3 would completely f*ck up the disc drive but that part was speculation.
