-Sticky Bombs can NO LONGER be thrown ON TO Gas Station Gas Pumps,
~The Sticky Bombs will just disappear and will NOT detonate.
~This is a way for R* to prevent Player's from having to pay for their own "Personal Vehicles" if someone else has destroyed them.(By blowing up the Gas Pumps)
-Added "-*SOLO* Store ANY(NON-Banned) Vehicle, even Other Players Personal Vehicles:" and "-The Teleporting Spectator Mode Glitch;" to the Exploits/Glitches Section.
Last night I had no problem placing sticky bombs on a gas pump and blowing it up in a crew session by myself...not sure if that is a caveat.
The spectator thing happens to me occassionally when I accept a job invite by phone from a freind. I willbegin spectating then suddenly get seperated from the car and left at some spot near the map. You can select any weapon but can only fire in one direction. Start menu functions normally. You can access map...have not tried phone or interaction menu. If you stay put until the end of the race you get paid cash sometimes more than the race winner. If you stay to the vote screen it will hang up the loading until you leave.
The change they did to the race ticker about who is in first place has actually made the issue worse. Repeatedly last night I was in first or second maintaining a block of distance between us and the ticker is trading off leaders in rapid fire to the point where it was annoying.
Before installing the patch I completely reformatted my main hard drive and my thumb drive on my xbox. Vaccumed the dust out of the console, placed a fan blowing directly onto the hardware, rebooted my router and modem, checked that I was getting my proper 50mbs speed, made a fresh install of disk one on the hard drive, redownloaded my user profile, fresh install of disk two on the thumb drive, downloaded the fresh title update, installed the 5 DLC packages and proceeded to log on.
The first two races I got in would not connect. The fifth race hung the game on the loading screen. I backed out to the dashboard since console was not frozen. Got back in game and started a playlist. Playlist went fine but 4 people said they tried to join at random times and recieved a message saying I was no longer in session. At the end of the playlist I dropped into a private session and proceeded to check forum here. I noticed my screen had darkened from inactivity and the moment I touched the right thumbstick to move the camera the console froze solid.
