Now this is bizarre. Today I just booted up the PS3 version of Episodes from Liberty City (don't ask, I'm in the process of rebuilding GTA data after a massive data loss) and I got a message telling me there was a 1.01 update. I got the same thing with GTA IV, which was a 1.07 update. I don't know if this will hold true for all users, but I found it odd considering how old GTA IV is. Even then though, nothing seems to have changed, not even the multiplayer. If you've saved data on EFLC recently, the original GTA IV still fails to auto-load your latest save and starts a new game. Seriously, what's the point of updating this for the first time in years if you're not going to fix something as simple as that? This just confuses me.

hmm. believe it or not but i was thinking to myself maybe MAYBE they will update GTA IV soon. why? because, because of the Gamespy shutdown Auf Wiedersehen Petrovic trophy/achievement became unobtainable in GTA IV. because in GTA IV your multiplayer stats are saved on servers. and it's a trophy dependent on servers. if you've done certain things in your multiplayer carreer you earn it. and that's a list like win 120 races and win a ton of other DM, TDM etc. etc. stuff. but because of the shutdown our multiplayer stats can not be stored anymore because those are the servers that are shut down (that stored our multiplayer stats). i was thinking to myself maybe they'll patch GTA IV so our multiplayer stats are saved on our local saves file anymore. so people can continue earning this trophy. 

 

but this is totally out of my ass right now i don't even know if the update is about this.

Why they no make everyone Rank 10 by default? That's the least they could have done.

Don't take my word for it but I think the update may have been from a long time ago. You said that you had a massive data loss, usually when you re-install a game on your PS3, you have to download the patches again. Again don't take my word for it.

This came as a surprise to me too. I've been playing IV in the last week or two and boom... An update, all of a sudden. I didn't want to post anything here until I found out what it was about. Thanks for posting that link, kipakolonyasi.

I'm not really sure about the reasons behind this, but looks like IV's and EFLC's multiplayers will from now on be just for fun for everyone.

The only thing i've noticed is that when starting a new game after loading a save you can see this artwork instead of just a black screen. I might be mistaken, but i'm pretty sure that didn't happen before.

Yes, me. Well, actually, I don't really play V, just load it up sometimes. But I mostly concentrate on my "hardcore" playthrough in IV.

With the multiplayer servers now shut. Does that mean the level your character was at, resetted back to 0 or is that still the same level after a long time playing the game.

 

What I mean is, is the levels intact of your multiplayer charcter or not before this server shut because of gamespy late last month.

Everyone's rank is reset to 0 and you cannot level up anymore. Basically, there are no ranks anymore.

I don't think Rockstar will do anymore for GTA IV/EFLC.  :(  They possibly consider it to be 'complete'.

 

Cheers.

So basically no more IV Multiplayer?

 

It annoys me, and no doubt others, who have devoted many, many hours, or even years in playing IV's multiplayer to level up and such, to be slapped in the face by R* all of a sudden. 

 

I knew that the original multiplayer servers were going to be closed down by the end of last month, but surely something to prevent everyone's levels being resetted to 0 in the new servers. So there is no Multiplayer modes anymore but Free Mode/Party Mode?

No, everything, every game mode is still there. You also still basically earn cash when, for example, you finish a race. The scoreboard still shows how much money everyone has earned. It's just that everybody is rank 0, you can't rank up and it always says: "$0 needed to level up".

Can you still unlock clothing?, or not?

 

So levels might return in the near future for all of your characters? Or R* might or might not, but who knows, make everyone a Level 10 if and in and when they patch it further, if however they ever do so. 

 

Just ticked off like others no doubt who leveled up, especially the ones that were LVL 10 before this happened.

The funny thing is, all the clothes and accessories are actually on the disc. If you are on the PC version you can cycle through all of them via SNT.

Looks like it. There are the many who still play IV and always do over V, and there is the many who play V over IV. I just wished R* did something about everyone's levels to prevent all of this. Is the Xbox 360 version affected, or is it just the PS3 version?

I wouldn't panic, IV's multiplayer is still up. 

 

Red Dead Redemption had a new update as well. The only thing I've noticed is the Social Club no longer features an online 100% checklist or other options.

As long as they don't pull the plug on IV's multiplayer anytime soon, despite the levels, then fine by me. 

 

How many still play IV's multiplayer? Even though V Online is out, have always wondered after 5 to 6 years of playing the game.
