BAWSAQ is working again. All businesses have a different price now.

It's been 10 days now since BAWSAQ has got stuck. Stocks are not moving anymore.

 

Is anybody else experiencing this?

This would appear to be a client-sided issue. I am going to request you try removing the latest patch from your account, then re-downloading it while booting the game from the XMB or dashboard. Sometimes certain assets for SP or MP can become stuck or damaged but this isn't a fatal problem. Let me know how it works out for you! Do take into consideration that the SP stock market it stored via save data as well, so could try also reverting to another save you may have and see if that works?

When I first started playing 2 months ago, I made a bunch of money on the BAWSAQ. But now, Since I bought my last round of stocks 2 weeks ago, none of the prices of any of my investments have moved a penny. Is this normal?

Since I have the Special Edition of the game, what will happen with the additional content? Will I have to redownload it from PSN?

 

Nevermind.

It's stuck for me too.

 

How can this be a "client-side" issue when the BAWSAQ data is updated on the Rockstar servers?

They say that it has something to do with our consoles' communication with the servers, and that's why they recommend uninstalling and re-installing patch 1.15.

 

I will try this tomorrow, however I don't believe that the problem will be solved.

I don't think it has anything to do with our consoles --- if you view BAWSAQ through the Social Club website, it's not working there either.

You're probably right, it's been an hour since I did this and the stocks have not even moved yet.

I submitted a ticket to R* Support, but haven't heard anything. Hope it gets fixed soon.  :(

I just sold all three characters' stock (they were all up at the time the market froze) because I'm uncertain what will happen. It's better not to have money in it when it's clearly broken and there's no telling what effect the fix will have.

It's been more than 15 days now and BAWSAQ is still stuck. I opened a ticket at R* Support and after doing everything they told me, they said that they would "send a report up so that their team can see just what is going on".

I am also talking to R* Support. They told me to delete my system cache and delete game files and reload them. Neither "fix" worked.

They told me the same... it didn't work either.

 

It's obviously a fault from their side, since it appears to be stuck both while viewing it via the in-game cell phone and via the Social Club BAWSAQ page.

They told me to unlink my social club account with my gamertag and re-link it. Did not work. I think that they do not want to admit its their problem at this point.

"We have had other report of the stock market in GTA not working from many other players. Since we have had so many reports of this, we have been told that Rockstar is aware of this issue and they are working on a fix at the moment.

I assure you it is not your game, console, or network connection. Hopefully they will get it fixed soon as I personally am looking to make a fortune in the story mode.

Please let me know if there is anything else I might be able to help you with."

 

Apparently they are finally aware of the issue but offer no timetable for resolution.

I'm having the same problem it won't let me buy Vapid as trevor but let's me as Michael and Franklin. I hate when Dickstar fixes it where you can't earn 1million in cash even when you're not cheating it's proof of dickstar being corrupt game developers

 

And when I'm buying them as Michael and Franklin the stocks don't rise they stay at 0.

 

And every patch they release the game becomes more unplayable

Glad I made my billion and a half off of Beta Pharmeceuticals when I did. Bawsaq needs some TLC these days.

So releasing something that doesn't work makes them corrupt? That escalated quickly.

 

 

Anyway,

 

I'm pretty new to GTA V. Does this kinda thing happen often?

It all started (for me) about a month ago. Until then, the Stock Market had been working flawlessly. Since then though, all stock prices have been stuck on the same price.

I opened a third ticket about this, and they told me that my case would be "escalated to the proper department"...

 

...I hope that they actually do something about it this time.

I'm bumping this to inform that the market is STILL stuck... almost 2 months now and it hasn't been fixed yet.

 

Anyone else?

Good grief, has it been stuck this long?! They won't ever fix it then, will they? 

 

I've upvoted, but it doesn't seem to get the attention it deserves... 

 

Is this just SP issue, or is it stuck in MP too? At any rate, I can't understand why they simply won't fix it, as they've obviously just made a mistake with one of their latest patches... And they owe us better than this!

This doesn't have anything to do with MP, since the market in MP was never activated.

Really? Always thought bawsaq was made specifically for Online, and that single players were merely permitted to leach off it... Haven't played Online myself though, thought I'd wait for the PC version... But with such careless support of the Story Mode, I really must reconsider whether I really want to reward them with a second purchase... It's too bad, cause it's really one of the finest games I've ever played.

Just to confirm... Does this affect all story mode players? Rockstar insists that it's a local issue (I'm going through their steps of denial as we speak, no luck thus far), yet I have seen that at least one other player have exactly the same unchanging stock prices as me. That wouldn't be the case if bawsaq got stuck for different players at different times would it? It's astonishing to me that they flat out refuses to acknowledge the problem after all this time, and multiple requests...

 

I realize that most players probably play online now, and that that is why there isn't a greater uproar about it perhaps... But it just seems like it should have gotten more attention if it affected everyone.

BAWSAQ has been an SP feature since day 1. In Online, it was never accessible. You're right about the rest, they don't seem to give a damn about SP anymore.

I believe that it affects many, if not all, players. It's certainly not a local issue, I've opened three tickets on R* support and went through ALL the troubleshooting steps, and still nothing. It's obviously an error on their part, which they refuse to acknowledge.
