Does anyone else have a hell of a time getting online? Mine alwYs times out or loses connection...most of the time I have to go to an invite only session then try and switch to a regular session from there. Sometimes that works sometimes it don't. Any suggestions?

I do have this problem from time to time, but restarting my PS3 seems to solve it.

I just have a problem staying connected. Keep disconnecting during loading screens.

It's gotten out of hand now. Every time a job is about to start it says I timed out

PS3 and had this same problem. Someone suggested that I run the rebuild database from the PS3 menu. I could not get it to run and neither would the restore. I bought a new hard drive for $40 and installed it yesterday and have had zero problems since. No more time outs, stuttering/bad renders and the load times are faster.

Well I guess that doesn't help you then, but there may be a similar function for the XBox.

Yeah, I did but I'm back on now.

 

Did you load into a server in record time?  My screen just went black for about 10 seconds and then boom, there's my toon standing in his bedroom.  No loading screen in the clouds or anything.

During this week I've had connection time out trying to sign in and 3 times it's just booted me out mid race (about 5 minutes ago!) and mid free roam in an invite only session.

My problem has happened since day one. Progressively getting worse. I don't know what the deal is. Anyone know any fixes?

it happens, i get it periodically but not as bad as some people are saying they get it. that would tick me off when I have limited time to play and spend 85% of it tying to load a session

 

Maybe its because i play a lot in invite only with friends, are the people having consistent problems getting them only for public sessions or for any mode? just curious

I can always get into invite sessions. But that's only so much fun

I've always had this problem, but like others have said it is getting worse...

 

Usually lose connection right after joining online, or finishing a mission... I can usually play in an invite only session by myself, but that gets boring fast.

 

Why your servers so sh*tty R*?

was over at a mate's house yesterday and he couldn't even get the game started

it froze in the loading screen, didn't matter if it was MP or SP

any1 else experience this kind of thing?

he did get an update when he started the game, is there a new one or was that just an old one cuz he didn't play in a while?

 

also there's this DNS trick that worked wonders for me

I had random disconnects and crashes all the time untill I switched to google's public DNS

I could give you guys the numbers but I'm not sure if it will work for every1 (might depend on where your're at)

 

anyway

 

Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8

secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4

 

changed it to that in my network settings and never had a problem since

 

ow and it's not really R* servers that are at fault here I think since the game doesn't run on dedicated servers, it's all dependant on your connection to other players who do host the game

I remembered Spuds725 had posted about port forwarding for a member with connectivity problems here .

No idea if that will help but it seems worth a shot.
