I read in the Spanish preview from 3DJuegos.com, that GTA ONLINE will feature Dedicated Servers.

 

Is it 100% confirmed? Do any of the other previews mention Dedicated Servers?

 

Hopefully the Spanish web isn't making that up or misunderstood Rockstar.

Does anybody know if free mode will still have the option to turn off cops? Every scene in the online gameplay had cops, and GTA IV free mode was where I went when I didn't want to deal with cops. confused.gif

 

A no cops cheat in single player would suffice though. smile.gif

How do you do heist missions and such without a crew?(solo).

Is it working like sp,that the a.i helps you or what?

Hey all, new to the forums but a long time GTA fan, including GTA IV multiplayer.

 

They new 3DJ interview did mention a bit about controlling police, traffic density, weather etc. How is this going to work, if not all players chose to participate in a race or deathmatch or other game modes? For example, you are in the world with 16 players total. You and 3 friends decide to take part in some activity where the creator has decided it should be raining, low traffic or other options. How is this going to affect the other 12 players who are possibly doing something else where the options may be different or interfere with the other 4 players' options?

 

From what I have deduced (not necessarily accurately), online is not going to be host style where one person is in full control of what others are doing or experiencing unless they choose. What kind of solutions do you think R* has made to avoid complications such as this. They seem to want to make any transitions as seamless as possible, so I wouldn't think you would constantly be swapping which players are in your world, since there are so many possible factors that could be changing.

 

I have read just almost every interview I can find, and like anybody my mind is trying to put it all together. Perhaps somebody might have some thoughts or can point to some evidence for an answer to this....

If you look at the CVG/Gamespot interviews and GTAO demo previews, there do make mention that if you are doing a mission and find it is too difficult for you or you don't have enough manpower, you can hire the private security firms and other backup npcs to help you. My assumption was that you may have to have this "special ability" unlocked by your rep. points (i.e. how far you have progressed in online and the characters you have met). And obviously you'll need the money to do it.

Ah. Thnx for the help. Somehow i missed that in the previews.

Since servers are being run from 'Cloud' does this mean people can interact with players across both xbox and PS3?

Its not 100% confirmed yet (or atleast i cant find anything from rockstar confirming it) - but is highly likely due to the sheer scale of GTA online

no is the short answer - as both console are in competition with eachother they would never allow this to happen. both companies want the consumer to buy their product, therefore it would not be beneficial to either to allow cross platform gaming.

still no confirmation on turning off the police, an educated guess would be that you cant.

 

R* wont realism and consequences - based on previous GTA's a police cheat would be the most likely (lowering wanted levels etc)

 

Hope this helps

How the hell can it have 700 missions? Are they seriously all going to be unique and different or will there be 1 heist, 1 gang war and 698 "Drive him there and kill him"

Im currently looking into finding an answer for this. Honestly this is something i want to know myself.

 

700 missions is mind blowing - and 500 of those are available upon release

 

As soon as i find something out i will let you guys know.

I would definetly recommend getting a headset. You can get some decent ones for cheap.

 

All mulitplayer games are limited in some way or another without one.

 

Also from interviews as of late, weve been informed that charachters will react to how loud and angry you get in certain situations.

 

So yes. Is the short answe - but i couldnt say how much it will limit

I agree. Being able to communicate to other players online will dramatically increase your ability to work within a crew affectively. What if you're in a heist and another player says "We'll hold them down here, TheNando, go get the getaway car NOW!" and you just stand there because you can't talk or here anything? People won't want to play with you as much in those situations. Races, Free Roam and Deathmatch you would be fine without it mostly. Except for the times people are trying to meet others to join a crew or work on a heist.

 

The downside to having a headset is most of what you hear is abnoxious noise.

 

In my opinion, the addition of speaking in the mic loudly that results in startling peds or making them work faster will not have a major role in the game. It's a cool feature, but will mostly just be an afterthought I think.

There has been a lot of talk about GTA:O moving onto next gen etc etc

 

Has there been any word on whether it will be a continual process (ie our characters will roll on over with us), and if so, do you think this data will be contained on the Social Club and allow, for example, an X360 created GTA:O character to be picked up on PS4?

Thanks Kratos. I assumed as much, but had my fingers crossed that by some miracle I would be able to play with my friends haha!

 

Might have to buy a PS3 cry.gif

No problem smile.gif

 

I feel your pain, alot of my friends have an xbox whilst i own a ps3.

 

We can always hope that one day cross platform gaming will exist, although i very much doubt it lol.

Do we need to invite every member of our crew to our friends list? Or is it possible to see the online status of our crew buddies/find parties with our crew buddies without having them in the list?

Is there any at all posibility for a lan game? I understand if it isnt going to count for anything for rep or whatever because it wouldnt be updating the cloud. Even if it was essentially just single player with a buddy im all set. I just dont want to be online consistently just to fool; around with my brothers character in the next room over.

 

but with this , i doubt LAN is going to be possible. i see where they are trying to go with ONLINE but it is a feature they should consider. even if it just cache what you did on lan and updated the cloud on next connection. I know they want to make it an mmo in essence so my better judgement says LAN will never be a feature.

I asked this in another thread but perhaps someone here might know something new.

 

I want to make Machinima with GTA Online, so I'm hoping there will be a free-roam camera available, whether it be in live play (unlikely I suppose) or in a cinema playback of some kind. Does anyone know if this will be implemented, or of any clever ways to work around this if not? Cheers.

In an interview it was said that you can't record videos, so I doubt there'll be a free roam camera. If you want to make machinimas you can wait for the PC release.

Sorry if this has already been answered, but I'm curious if you can have private games, just with friends and such. I think I already saw this in a preview somewhere, but I'm not 100% certain.
