Has Rockstar changed something about the ordering of jobs in a playlist?

Has anyone else noticed that it is making changes to the order of the jobs in a playlist all on its own? The only thing I can figure is it is for some reason auto-re-ordering the playlist to try to minimize jobs made by the same creator being clumped together. I have always done this with my playlists for the approved races thread and have never had this issue until today. Both playlists I tried to update with new nominations have randomly reordered themselves to separate creators and no matter how many times I remake them or edit them they keep shuffling themselves.

I am not talking about shuffling while playing them but literally the saved playlist when you pull it up on social club is different than what I made and saved.
 
If this is something you added Rockstar...PUT IT BACK THE WAY IT WAS. When I make a playlist I want it the way I made it.

There is a "Shuffle" option on the playlist menu, you haven't accidently switched this to on have you ?

I stated in the post nitty that that was not what I was talking about. Not to mention, it does not stick. That option only applies to the playlist you choose next AND it only shuffles the play order of the list...not the list itself.

What is happening to me now is I make a playlist, save it, immediately reopen it and the order of the races has changed to split up creators.

I am almost 100% sure that most players will make a playlist in the order they want it to be...and in no way want some code reorganizing it. If this is not just some bug only applying to me then it is seriously a bad choice by the devs.

You can see for yourself...make a playlist with creators A and B...like so...

A
A
A
B

Save it...then look at what it saved either by pulling it open again or by looking in SC...it will now be...

A
A
B
A

I don't want that. If I wanted that I would have made that.

I'll test it tonight, is this just with newly made PL's or does it also change previously saved ?

I havent taken the time to look but most of my other playlists are either all mine or an already varied assortment of others (you know, because I am perfectly capable of doing that myself)...

Not complaining about your help man...appreciate the responses. Just get ticked when they make stupid pointless changes. There was no reason to do this.

Mine are all as I have set them but I have to admit, I only have 2 lists that are mixed with more than 1 race by a particular creator. The rest are either all my own or 1 race per person.

One of those 2 has 4 of mine in an 8 race list but I've alternated mine with others, it's unchanged. The other is 3 of mine and 2 of Deejays, it goes C, D, C, C, D and is also still in the order I chose....

Could be just you? Or Xbox?

Sounds like your matrix-skull-plug might be a little loose. Unplug it then replug nice and secure. Weird stuff should stop happening after that.

Can any of you try making a new one real quick for testing purposes please. Try with any four races that are not yours...three of one person and one of another.

Saw your post in "OK what has 1.14?" thread. I just started compiling a playlist of short races entitled "Warrener Cup". I'm up to stage 5 but when I checked last night it's putting Stage 4 before Stage 3 and like you say no amount of re editing will change it. Have you found a solution? As the stages all pretty much start from where the last one left off I don't think it's map geography that's causing it.

My issue has been and is still with grouping creators. If I make a playlist of all one creator...which I assume is what you are doing...I have not had any issues.

And no I have not found a fix, nor had I confirmed that anyone else is having this issue. As no one else is claiming it I assumed it was some sort of bug with just me.

The "Warrener Cup" is all my races. I made them in chronological order but then wondering if repubilshing changed order (i.e. publish date order), lifted a checkpoint and dropped to then retest and publish stage 4 as hadn't added Stage 5 yet but still in wrong order. When tying to add Stage 5 race to playlist my console froze 3 times. WTF? :lol:

I'm getting this problem too.  I have the Community Content Creators thing going on and I've been adding jobs as I get them to the playlist and they've moved around on me.  Here's something I've thought happened in my own situation, maybe it happened to you, maybe there's a way around it.  I created the playlist and then saved it, then decided I wanted to move things around, moved them and re-saved.  It keeps reverting back to the first save and ignoring my overwrite.  Is that what is happening for you?  Can you add or subtract a job and move things around and then try saving?  I haven't messed with it since I figured I'd come back to it, but those were my only troubleshooting/diagnostic thoughts on the matter.

Just found a solution to the jumbled up playlists.

 

Moved one at a time and saved after each move. It worked! :colgate:

I'm having a similar issue. I made 10 races. Each stage starts off where the last one ended. I want all 10 races in order. But after I save the playlist I get 1,2,3,4,5,7,6,10,8,9. I try to rearrange them in the correct order. Also tried saving it after each one I added. But it always goes back to same order after saving. The only solution i found that works. Is to have two playlists. One has stages 1,2,3,4,5 and the other has 6,7,8,9,10. But I would really like one playlist with all 10 in order. If anybody has any ideas let me know.

This worked in the past. I'm not sure if it still works now but I would create the play list, load all of my created races and missions into the list and save it. Of course the order would be totally jumbled. Then for some unknown reason, I'd go back to edit the play list several days later and it would allow me to correct and reorder them properly. I have no idea why that worked. I have a playlist that I'm working on and it loaded out of order so if this still works I'll post an update.

The method described in my previous post worked again for me on PS4 if that helps. I still have no idea why waiting a couple of days and reordering the list clears up this job ordering problem but as long as it works I don't care.
