Can someone explain the 2 billion bug thingy? I invested 1,5 billion on PIS, did I screw up or something?

In computers, integers(entire numbers, 1,2,3 etc, not 3.1415926) are saved in different formats, in this game they decided to use int32, meaning 2^32 numbers available, which ranges from -2.147xx... billion to +2.147 billion, or in other words, - 2^16 and up to 2^16 -1 (because 0 is a number too)

They believe that if you go past the limit of int32, which is as we said, 2.147, it will go into negative(which it should) but R* have thought of this and what happens to me is this:

I have lots and lots of shares, worth in total about 3.5 billion, when I try to sell them all the game automatically sells just the right amount for me to end up with the money limit(2.147 billion), the rest stay in the market. If I sell the rest manually(not by clicking "SELL ALL"), they just disappear because I can't have more than 2.147 billion, I have to spend some cash to "make room" for more money.

get it? also, for the exact number google "2^16" and substract 1, should be something with a 7 at the end

EDIT: and no, you didn't screw up, invest as much as you can, it'll only allow you to take back 2.147b, the rest stays invested
one more thing just to clarify, it's 2.147 for each character, so in total the maximum amount of money is 6.441 billion.

Thanks for the informative answer! Guess I'll just click Sell All then, buy some properties and then cash out the rest!

Is it too late to gain advantage of this?
