Stevie NEVER texted me! 98% done with game...

Have you accidentally turned on Sleep Mode?

 

Because this makes all mission based texts and phone calls go away until you turn it off again.

No he did not because if he did he could not make any further progress in the game.

I think I found out one reason why people might not be texted from Brucie about Stevey. I restarted my game, (saved over the complete game by accident cryani.gif ) And I did all of the Brucie missions AFTER Niko found out Dimitri is a trader, and you are sent to Bohan .

 

I am almost positive this is a cause of the glitch.

Is that what you did thegigabite? (Do Brucie missions after you go to Bohan)

If you are talking about the mission "Russian Revolution", I really cannot remember when I did it. But I probably did it before the Brucie missions. But I don't think that this is the cause of the glitch...

 

My theory about the glitch is this: my phone was primarily in sleep mode after I completed the mission "Smackdown". I probably had it like that and progressed "too far" for the Stevie missions to come in. After a "certain point," even after I would turn my phone on again, the Stevie window was passed. This is due to poor game programming/ debugging by Rockstar. Just look at the other glitches: the swing glitch and other missions not triggering after a missed call etc...

 

Games are not perfect, that is why there are updates and patches.

 

Anyway for what it's worth, since the Stevie garage won't open I did the first person/hood view bike trick (Sprue gave me the idea) and this is what I saw inside the garage from the back.

I'm pretty sure the majority of the Brucie emails I did toward the end of the game, way after that (unless you're meaning if you do none of the Brucie ones before your spoiler). Still got the text from Stevie later (I just can't quite remember if I started the Stevie stuff right before or right after I beat the last story mission...I keep thinking right after, though, since I remember wanting to finish the story ASAP).

 

I'm curious if the disappearing text messages I saw on Giga's save file might be a clue (or perhaps an after effect of the original cause of the glitch). In case you don't want to hunt for what I mean, I had two text messages disappear off of my phone. I deleted neither one and after saving, on two seperate occasions I happened to have looked into my text message box and noticed nothing was there. And these were both texts I recieved, as Giga had deleted all of his before he put the file up to DL. Very odd.

 

Edit to add: tommykills1- You just get his answering machine. And getting him 100% respect and like does not do anything, either.

I didn't collect a single car for Brucie or Stevie until I'd completed the storyline.

 

So, that's an end to that theory.

I'm pretty sure this is caused by having your phone in sleep mode. I have played through this game 3 times now and it only happened to me the first time when I had sleep mode on. Not all text messages stay in your phone either regardless of sleep mode, especially the picture texts. Sometimes they only stay there for a brief period of time because they are specific only to the mission/date in which you are currently on. I don't really consider this to be a glitch but I do think it sucks. It would be nice if you could save them all. As far as waiting for someone to call you to initiate a mission, you can actually call them sometimes to get it going sooner. This worked for me a couple of times. Unfortunately this does not apply to Brucie in regards to Stevie. In other words, If you miss that call, you're screwed. Sorry Gigabyte, you gots to start over. You'll spend less time doing this than trying to figure out the problem. There may be no solution anyway except for that patch. The prereqs for Stevie are completing "NO 1" and "Smackdown". But I have also heard some people say you also have to complete "A long way to fall" which is one of Ray's missions. This is what I found: The second time I played, I finished Smackdown but didn't get the call from Brucie until a bit later in the game. I'm thinking not until after I completed A long way to fall. The third time, I did A long way to fall before Smackdown and got the call right after completing Smackdown. Brucie races, imports, and like and respect have absolutely NOTHING to do with it. I just completed the game for the third time and didn't touch any of the side missions or extra sh*t yet.

OK guys and gals, I have good news and bad news...

 

Good news: I am 100% sure of what caused the Stevie glitch (I am able to reproduce the glitch).

 

Bad news: Even though I know the cause of the glitch, there is no way to fix it.

 

I have a save file right after I finished the mission "A Long Way To Fall". Before I finished that mission I also completed "Smackdown". So here is what caused the Stevie glitch: when I load my save file, Brucie does call me after a couple of game hours. He tells me that he will give Stevie my number. So far so good.

 

Now here is where things get interesting. If you leave your phone on, Stevie will send you a text message after a couple of game hours asking you to steal the first car. That's of course normal. Now if you put your phone in sleep mode after Brucie calls you, Stevie will attempt to text you. When he attempts to text you, the garage icon appears on your map AT THE SAME TIME that he sends you the text. But if your phone is on sleep mode, YOU DO NOT GET THE TEXT BUT THE GARAGE ICON APPEARS ON YOUR MAP. This is how you can tell if you have been affected by the glitch. Remember, the garage icon does not appear on your map until Stevie texts you. If your phone is on sleep mode when he attempts to text you, you will still get the garage icon but you will not get the text. THIS IS THE STEVIE GLITCH. He will never contact you again.

 

This is how I tested my theory: I waited in front of the Stevie garage before Brucie called me. After he called and told me about Stevie, I put my phone in sleep mode. After a couple of game hours the garage icon appeared on the circular map right before my eyes. Afterwards I immediatley turned my phone on but Stevie never sent another text.

 

I reloaded the save file and I did another test: I got the call from Brucie. After the call I put my phone in sleep mode. I then commited suicide to pass the game hours. When I got out of the hospital the garage icon appeared on the map. I turned my phone on and Stevie wouldn't send a text.

 

I reloaded the save file and I did another test: I got the call from Brucie. After the call I put my phone in sleep mode. I then went to a pay&spray to pass the game hours. When I got the car fixed the garage icon appeared on the map. I turned my phone on and Stevie wouldn't send a text.

 

Basically if your phone is on sleep mode when Stevie sends you the first text, you will get the garage icon but you will miss the first text FOREVER. This will prevent you from getiing 100% because the Stevie missions cannot be started.

 

If you want the save file to try this out for yourself, please let me know. Now that I have found the exact cause of the glitch, hopefully Rockstar can now issue a patch... sarcasm.gif

OK guys I give up. Stevie just simply will not send me a text. I will retire from GTAIV with only 98%. I simply refuse to restart the game due to a bug/glitch. That's just wrong. I've invested a good 75+ hours in the game. And on a side note all the other GTAs: III, VC, SA, LCS, and VCS I've gotten all 100%. So until Rockstar addresses this bug (or any other bug) I'll start playing COD4 again.

 

Cheers to everyone who've provided me with help and suggestions. smile.gif

yea ive got the same problem bro

im at 98%

but the random character jeff just will not call me

so im just gonna try and get my 10 in multiplayer until rockstar adresses anything that could help us

Does anyone know exactly when the call from Brucie or message from Stevie will come? I'm on my second playthrough and I finished all of the cars for Brucie. He sent me a txt after the last one, but he didn't call. I went and did a job for Jacob and its been about 2 game days since finishing Brucie's list, and still nothing. Any ideas?

Hi Gigabite!

 

IT SEEMS YOU'VE FOUND OUT WHAT'S CAUSING THE CANCELLATION OF STEVIE'S MISSIONS

 

I've had exactly the same problem for quite some time now and searched on numerous forums for answers. When i couldn't find any, i stopped doing all side-missions and odd jobs towards getting 100% completion because i didn't want to waste my time as long as my "Stevie problem" wasn't fixed. So i concentrated on multiplayer instead until i stumbled on this post. I think you've identified what's causing so many people trouble: it's putting the phone into sleep mode after getting Brucie's call about Stevie and saving, dying or respraying vehicles without turning it back on (or just keeping it in sleep mode for a few game hours actually). The garage does appear, but you NEVER get the first text message and attached photo. And then you're screwed!

 

If you don't put the phone on sleep mode or reactivate it before you do anything time/clock related (saving, dying, getting busted, respraying or just waiting a few game hours), you'll be fine because Stevie will text you soon. So thank you Gigabite for finding this out, i just DOUBLE CHECKED what you said on one of my earlier saves. Got Brucie's call, and then tried both scenarios: getting Stevies text message and then "missing" it on purpose.

 

So, unless Rockstar can do anything about this problem and fix it with a patch (which i think is rather unlikeky), the only thing to do is go without Stevie's missions and say goodbye to the 100% completion, or start again from an older save and play it right this time, which means staying away from the god**m sleep mode. It sucks because you've got to replay everything you've done. Luckily, i wasn't at 98% yet, but i'll still have a lot of things to do again. F*CK!!! But Gigabite, redoing all your 98% will be even worse. Hope you'll find the time and nerve to do it.

 

Oh yeah, and here are a few informations that might help some guys from other threads or forums, that are stuck (or think they are stuck) on Stevie's missions:

 

You never get any emails from Stevie, and he will never call you (it's Brucie who calls), nor will you have Stevie added to your contacts (which means you cannot call him), all you get are TEXT MESSAGES with attached photos of cars. The first one should come shortly after a call from Brucie, where he asks Niko (not you, you can't refuse actually) if he wants to steal cars for the guy who lent him the yellow Comet earlier in the game. BE CAREFUL WITH THE PHONE'S SLEEP MODE! Turn the phone back on before too much time goes by or even better, don't use it at all, it's safer. After you got Stevie's message, you might use it again, altough i'm not sure the sleep mode can be trusted anymore.

Brucie's emails about stealing cars and his car races have nothing to do with Stevie's missions (no need to have done them). You just need to be at a certain point in the storyline, with "No. 1" and "Smackdown" missions done and maybe this other Ray mission but i'm not sure about that one.

Last thing: if you've never gotten Stevie's text message (please everyone check your phone inbox before saying they're stuck), don't go check all 30 locations even if the garage is on your map, you won't find any cars and waste a lot of time like i did.

 

Now, hope this will help all those who don't have a clue about their "Stevie problem". It's sad but you'll probably have to start again if you want 100% like i do, and thanks again to "thegigabite" for finding out precisely what was causing the problem in the first place.

 

Cheers,

Oh, completely forgot to mention i'm on ps3. Don't remember what you're playing on, Gigabite. Anyone wants to check if the problem's the same on Xbox? Or does this problem only occur on ps3?

 

Also, i just thought of something. If Stevie's first text message is disabled by sleep mode, could it be that when you've delivered a car and have to wait a few game hours before he sends the next one, you have the same problem again (not getting a text message, ever) if you are in sleep mode at the moment he sends it. I read a few threads about people stuck in the middle of Stevie's missions because no new text message would come (not at the beginning like we were).

Well, if anyone knows something... I didn't have the time to play much since i discovered the truth about this problem thanks to Gigabite, but as soon as i do i'll try delivering one car and then cancelling Stevie's missions on the next text message, so we know for sure. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks Bob! I'm glad my findings shed some light for somebody else. I knew the phone being in sleep mode was the main suspect, since I left it like that for the majority of the game. Anyway, I have the PS3 version FYI. It would be interesting to see if this glitch happens on the XBOX360 as well...

 

I would also like to know what happens if you put the phone in sleep mode when Stevie sends you the second, third, etc. text for the other cars...

 

Anyway I do not plan on getting 100% anymore, I just don't have the time to do it. As a matter of fact I haven't played the game for weeks tounge.gif

 

Oh well I guess the lesson learned is BE CAREFUL WITH SLEEP MODE. GTAIV is a great game, but there are still some bugs to be ironed out.

 

Cheers to everyone. smile.gif

Hi!

 

Well I started delivering some cars for Stevie, now that I've redone the end of the storyline on my new save. After delivering the first two cars, I noticed that Stevie sends the next message approx. 6 hours later. I resprayed my car two times, and when I drove out of the paintshop I would instantly get Stevie's new text message asking for a new vehicle. So I figured if you turn your phone into sleep mode in the 6 hours after delivering a car, maybe even throwing a few resprays in, and then turn the phone back on, it might cancel the next text message.

 

When I tried doing so, i did 2 resprays as the previous times, with my phone on sleep mode. I got no message when i turned it back on (so i thought, yes it's the bug again), but after a third respray (with the phone active this time), I got the message right away when I drove out of the garage. So it SEEMS, and I said it SEEMS (don't want to try that for ages so I won't say it's 100% sure) that the "Stevie bug" does only affect the first message when the garage icon appears. Sleep mode is only fatal at that moment, but I still wouldn't advise using it for the following text messages.

 

OK, think this is the end of this thread for me. I know why my first game got f*cked by the "Stevie bug", and now I've got a new "clean" save and I'm almost to the point I was on the first one. Gonna try getting to 100% now, we'll see. Thank god I hadn't done the stupid pigeons and the Most Wanted & Vigilante missions in the old game. I wouldn't have done them a second time, so Gigabite's decision not to get 100% is clearly understandable imo.

 

Hope this thread will help those who have had the same "Stevie bug". Are there still questions?

 

 

Cheers,

 

Silent Bob.

Hi DJBillyB,

 

Note: this is about BRUCIE'S EXOTIC EXPORT MISSIONS (10 Vehicles/email requests), not STEVIE'S 30 CAR THEFTS (text message requests)!

 

An email? In my game all the 10 cars Brucie requested for his Exotic Exports were in my Internet inbox. But the message I think you're talking about ("i won't fill up your inbox any longer") was sent to me on the phone (text message from Brucie). Anyway, that's just to clear things up...

 

No Sanchez? That's weird. Could you have delivered it earlier in the game, and then accidently deleted the email that asked for it (still keeping the one requesting the second vehicle)? Because once you've answered Brucie's email requests and delivered the vehicle, you can delete them from your inbox. If Brucie sent you a text message thanking you for doing his car deliveries, i would think you've done all 10 missions. Best way to check is going into "pause", then looking at the bottom of the list in "Score Stats", just below Little Jacob's ten drug deliveries. If it says you've delivered 10 vehicles to Brucie, you're fine and can just forget about the Sanchez. If it's 9 and you say you've had Brucie's "thank you text message" and no new email requests, then i think you're in trouble. Don't know how to help you, sorry...

 

Just keep us posted so that we know if you had 10 or 9.

 

 

Cheers,

 

Silent Bob.

Yeah Papercut, there's no adding in the phone directory. Stevie also never calls. Just find and deliver the first car he wants (got to be the exact car that's on the picture, you'll be told when it's the right one) to the garage icon in Bohan and you'll get the next request per text message a bunch of hours later.

 

If you've already gotten Stevie's first text message, you should have no problem with the stevie bug anyway, so you're cool. Good luck doing those 30 missions for Stevie. Now that I finally got to do them (new save with no Stevie bug), I gotta say they were pretty boring. It's always the same. But then they're only side missions so what can you expect...

 

 

Cheers,

suicidal.gif Yeah, looks like I've got the same "Stevie Bug" on my 360 version - however, the Garage icon hasn't even appeared on my map yet, so it seems as if I'm not a victim of the "Sleep Mode" thing??

 

Question: does your friendship/respect with Brucie have to be at a certain level to trigger the Stevie texts? I haven't managed to get Brucie to 100% yet - he's a real hard-arse on running late...

 

Any new developments on this bug/glitch/[email protected]*&k-it-is?

Not sure but i don't think you have to get Brucie to 100% friendship to get his call about Stevie wanting you to steal cars. Do you remember getting a call from Brucie like that? Maybe you're just not far enough in the storyline missions... If you don't use sleep mode at the wrong moment, you should get a call from Brucie at some point (I don't think this one can be missed or cancelled, so just try to remember if you've had it already or not), and a few hours later a text message from Stevie requesting the first car, and the garage icon appears at the exact moment you get (or should get if you're in sleep mode) this first text message.

 

We don't know much about this "bug" on Xbox yet, as Gigabite and I both played Playstation. Hope you won't be stuck. Keep us posted. Might be able to help you...

 

 

Cheers,

 

Silent Bob.

You are probably not at the point where Stevie sends you the text yet. Have you completed "Smackdown" and "A Long Way To Fall"?

No.

Sorry, nothing new to report. But since you are on the XBOX360 version, please make sure you make backup saves when you complete "Smackdown" and "A Long Way To Fall". I'm saying that because maybe you can help us determine if the Stevie Glitch can also affect XBOX360 players as well. When you get to those missions please report back to us.

Sorry, but this is incorrect. Respect/Like points have no affect on the Stevie missions. Brucie will call you shortly after you complete "Smackdown" or "A Long Way To Fall". It is indeed a glitch if you put your phone in sleep mode when Stevie tries to send you the first text.

 

And where did you come up with that 95% number?

Hey gigabite, I've been reading this topic for awhile, and I am positive I have the same glitch as you, my good Sir. I am also a 360 player.

 

What happened with me was that I get tired really quickly of my "friends" calling me up at the most inopportune times, so I turned the phone onto sleep mode quite frequently. I did this before and after the call from Brucie about Stevie.

 

I didn't think much about missing Stevie's text messages, because whenever someone sent me a text message, I'd get it near instantly whenever I'd turn my phone off of sleep mode. I began to notice the glitch, however, when a garage icon appeared on my map and I was completely unaware of why it exists. When I read everything that happened to you, I realized I did the same exact thing. I don't even need to go back and replay to say that we experienced the same glitch, despite being on seperate consols (not that it really matters often when it comes to glitches anyway).

 

I will currently be in the process of writing a letter of complaint to Rockstar about this. Mainly in hopes that they will atleast inform me of their plans to correct this glitch with a future patch (or perhaps a download they have), or even if they can fix this glitch with a patch. I haven't completed the game 98% yet, but I was well on my way (having just killed all two hundred of those frelling flying rats), and it dissappoints me that my reaching 100% (and aquiring two achievements) is now hindered because of some silly glitch that could have been fixed by having all text messages being qued to be received when the phone is taken off of sleep mode.

 

I wish you luck, and I will be watching this thread myself, and offering any insight that you may have. I am also going to link Rockstar to this thread in hopes that they will read it (even if you have done so already, maybe if it is shoved down their throat they will respond).

 

I'm at the very least glad to see I am not alone in this glitch.

@ Captain Freakin' America: sorry to read you've had the same problem. Guess we've all used sleep mode for the same reasons, those stupid calls! Good luck with that letter to Rockstar. Keep us posted...

 

As Gigabite suggested, if a XBOX 360 user could try testing the glitch (as explained earlier on this thread) on one of their old saves, we would be 100% sure this problem affects both versions of the game. CFA seems pretty sure he has the exact same problem though... We'll see.

 

 

Later,

 

Silent Bob.
