I just played RDR multi and there was no more than 3 people in one freemode lobby. I changed like 5 times. still no more than 3 people. I also noticed that i had this wierd tunnel mirror effect on the screen when i killed someone. Is this normal? and in 3 of the lobbies I could not fire my guns. It was like I held an invisible gun that could not shoot. Is GTA IV multiplayer just as dead?

RDR multiplayer got hacked on the 17th August, by doing allsorts to RDR multiplayer.

You probably experienced these effects:

GTA IV's been a hacked mess for a couple years now, and RDR was just starting to become one by the end of last year.

When I've joined IV multiplayer games (the only things you can find now with others are free roam, and you're pretty lucky if there's like four or so other people in that), they've always been full of imported vehicles, kill-trigger props, and invulnerable players.

RDR has just started to see noclippers and invulnerable playersm but the last time I played was in October, so it probably got worse.

 

Also, GTA IV PC's servers were supported by Microsoft, but they're going to lose support soon. GTA IV PC multiplayer will be officially shut down in a month or two, but the console games seem long deserted anyway.

Time to trade Liberty City in for Chrome Adders, gentlemen.

Its even worse on PC.

On PC there are still quite alot of people that play IV Multiplayer BUT there are so many mods in bad ways.

There are mods that will crash people to their desktop, spawn boats on them so they lag out, remove their weapons etc.

Only way to counter this is to get an anti crash which there is like 1 public ATM.

I've also seen private mods that use a different kind of crash which a few people have.

Its just sad to see GTA IV going to waste like this.

Its also sad that you need an anti crash or else if you piss off the wrong people or you kill the wrong guy you're gonna get crashed.

One thing which is also bad is terrible hosts who just kick you if you annoy or piss them off just a little.

We still do a PC free mode every Friday night, just host it with no mods or crap, the city and all she provides for some fun and a mess about.

Rockstar should appoint moderators on each game. As you know, Rockstar desert the previous game of which they have created and focus all of their team on the present one. That's probably why GTA IV is currently a mess. Nobody is there to monitor it.

PC only has a few people still playing online but everyone is playing single player, Maybe when gfwl finally dies rockstar will use the steam servers instead. And I hope for god's sakes they also get rid of social club.

I've never had this experience on PC, and I've got over 200 hours in GTA IV. 

Whenever I do get into a lobby where others are using mods, it's usually just the simple native trainer. We usually just mess around and cause chaos with it. 

It's quite fun to be honest.

On PS3, I find it extremely hard to even get into 1 game anymore, unless it is with friends (Which is a really rare occasion anyway).

I'm guessing that the people that still play IV on PS3 only play it for the Single Player, and there only is few players on other platforms as well (According to some friends)

I'm not talking about Simple Native Trainer.

I'm talking about stuff like XL and people that abuse that.
