Game no longer there?

Just a quickie, trying to inv a m8 into a game, but keep getting the message game no longer exsists....! but random people join the game without an inv, get the same problem no matter who starts and sends the invs, me or him!

 

any ideas anyone..... if the game didnt exsist, then how can randoms join from nowhere !

 

 

 

 

 

***this might sound really weird but................ later that night!

 

after some proper fckin around with routers and all sorts, we still couldnt invite each other to a freeroam game, kept insisting the game was no longer there, even though people were randomly joining the game.

 

now we've both got our PS3's in DMZ's, and because random people were joining the game we were sure the game was there. so as a last ditch effort, because he hadnt got far in the game he deleted all GTA4 files from the PS3, i think he said there were 3 in total, and we tried again, and it worked........

 

well sort of anyways! i got in, but stright away got that bloody cant connect to people returning to single player mode. now this was ok as this is a random error i get now and again and sort of got it under control. so he sent me a 2nd inv, but this time got the game does isnt there anymore message again!

 

so he checked the PS3 again, and GTA had saved a file, must be some sort on MP stats file or something, he deleted this again, and then we tried again and it worked! we got a game going. this file definately done something!

 

SO any ideas why deleting this file would have helped?

any ideas whats in this file?

could this be the cause to more than just a problem in MP mode ?

anyone who actually knows what there talking about could look into this ? im lost!

I had exactly the same thing last night.

 

3 different people tried to invite all night and got the same message game session no longer exsists... what was the name of the file you deleted I can see if I have the same file and give it a try..

 

thanks

tbh he never said the name of the file, but he did say it was 47kb when it reappeared on the 2nd attempt.....

 

now ive just checked mine, and in my saved data file, there are 3 GTA4 files, 2 saved game, and 1 profile, and the profile saved file is 47kb so im guessing its this one.....

 

it may just be one hell of a coincedence, but it definately let us play!

would be nice if someone could confirm this aswell...... cause it has me well puzzled as to why this would happen!

 

but there was an update gone out, 2.36 or something at the time for the PS3, maybe this could have effected something somehow! i dont know, im no whizz, but i like to try and look at things from all angles!

Haven't tried it yet, but I hoped (as it downloaded) that the update may be something to do with GTA. Checked Official PS3 site thing & I quote..

 

Main features in system software update version 2.36

 

* System stability during use of some PlayStation format software has been improved.

 

Well that sure cleared it up for me. sarcasm.gif Better than a kick in the b@lls though!

Just to let you guys know.....

 

The 47K file is your online profile. I copied the file to my other login and then deleted it... I went online and the invites worked again. you look silly running round with crash helmet but at end on game, just changed cloths and still ok...

 

Thank for letting me know about the file to delete

 

much appreciated...
