MeatButcher

Xbox 360 - Game Keeps Freezing on Franklin's 1st Mission

Question

MeatButcher

Xbox 360 owner.

 

I had no issues installing disc 1 onto the HD.

 

No issues playing through the introductory mission.

 

No issues of cut scene transition between Michael and Franklin

 

Once the driving portion of Franklin's 1st mission start, the game randomly freezes forcing me to reboot the Xbox. There is no precursor for the game locking up; it appears to happen completely randomly and at different times during the mission. It has locked up on me early in the mission when Franklin's buddy calls up on the cell phone just after the driving starts. It has locked up during the second portion of the driving mission when the cops are chasing.

 

I'm not sure what to do.

I'd just like to take a second and thank all of you guys in this community.

Everyone is so helpful, no one is bombing or spamming all caps about this fault. Good to find some real people who can provide us with help by informing us what MS team said or what R* recommends.

 

It seems we're getting closer to a solution. :)

Keep it up.

Mine is still the same one i bought 6 years ago, the "pro" one. Still has the HDMI port, im hoping for it to be a faulty HDD and trying a flash drive but then i arent getting my hopes up.

think this is the case with GTA V for the time being... a billion dollars profit for a maybe a couple of million dollars from clients complaining...

Yep im sure it will be sorted eventually but as you say its mostly in the minority and they still have to work on GTA online, so its down to us individually at the moment, if i cant get it to work with usb install my only option is a new console. Is the problems just as pronounced on a slim 360 from what you have seen? Like judging by this forum 85% of problems people have an older console, only seen 1 or 2 with a slim experiencing anything.

It's quite annoying most games companies would only dream of making that much money, when youve made $1bn+, it makes us seem to rockstar more insignificant.

Quite pathetic though that they spend five years and >$138 million and they cut the corners of not testing it on all xbox types. It's either that or a case of false advertising and money grabbing from them..Whatever it Is, it's a poor show...

I too tried purplebunnys fix, previously I had got to franklins house and saved so I could at least spawn there, but after deleting and re-installing as said, I cannot even get to his house :(

yeah i hear that too. the problem is in the software. just dont know whats the deciding factor in making it work or screwing up. has anyone read the roackstar limite liability warranty in book supplied with game. it basically says the game may or may not work on all systems and that they may or may not fix any issues at their discretion

I am looking in to a new Xbox 360 S, within 2 weeks so hopefully it might actually get past the install screen on this one. Are they likely to patch this within the foreseeable future?

 

People with slims are having the problem too.

 

 

 

Well my xbox support agent told me to get a new xbox because we need a HMDI conncection... I dont know what he used today

 

My rep said that too. Clearly bullsh*t though, my disc of gta v works fine in my friend's console who doesn't even use his hdmi port.

 

 

Yeah thats crap. Works fine on my 2005 arcade with 20gig drive through the component cable.

 

Well thanks for the reactions i'm just going to talk again to a xboxsupport agent i lett you all know what solutions they came with

Mine wasn't the same error where it freezes, well it was but mine was just after install and you put in play disc, i always got restarted and a hard freeze when it was "loading story mode" with "storage issues". I suppose my issue all along was my hard drive being sh*t, but i could still freeze yet i dont know the precise moment you guys ones does not work with.

 

Was just a new official hard drive off a friend.

My conclusion of the topic. First I explain that I have the console with a mod on the fans to go to 12v (may change the original voltage of 12V). When are the fans at 12v (maximum air flow and a deafening noise) I could not play more than 2 hours straight until I was tired when I happened to 5v console lasted two seconds and froze. Restart 12v went back to make this cooler for the 360 and no problem.

It is clear that the GTA V squeezes the maximum GPU and our consoles with Xenon or Zephyr motherboard overheated causing it locks the xbox 360.

I have already decided to buy a xbox 360 S before it goes in Spain the "model E" in order to continue to enjoy my games in coming years.

Joined this site to add my story and share my thanks. I had an 08 refurbished with no hdmi 20gb model (I did upgrade to a 120gb hdd though). I followed the instructions by antler in the video earlier in the thread that had me move my save game data to the cloud. Then I moved the install data (disc 1) to a 16gb usb then I installed the play disc data on the HDD. I then cleared the cache 2 times on both the hdd and the usb stick. I then downloaded the atomic blimp from the in-game menu. I now have no problems with freezing whereas before I had constant freezing and can only play for 10-15 minutes. I just wanted to share my store and hopefully someone else's problems gets fixed by trying this too. Thanks to the community who actually gave me a fix rather then rockstar support who suggest it was my disc or xbox when I can still play every other game I own with no problem.

Keep my fingers crossed that it looks like i past that point. I really hope they do find a way to patch it its unacceptable for these amounts of problems, on a console no less,

Sad that this happends to old consoles :( My Xbox360 Slim did its job and no freezes... I hope you find a way to fix this! Also, How to install on USB? I can't install the play disc on it :( I can only do it on my HDD and my Pendrive/USB is formatted & configured for Xbox :( So I guess USB's don't work on Xbox 360 Slim because the dashboard update :(

Just made an account for this my xbox is and old one but it has an hdmi port. It was either a replacement or a fixed one from getting RROD. I recently bought gta5 and ive played it for a while getting freezes all over the place. While its been doing this ive just been restarting my xbox i try to quicksave inbetween every mission so i dont lose progress currently i have unlocked micheal but freezing is still an issue

I have the xbox 360 slim mw3 edition with a 250gb hdd and I can barely reach franklin's first mission. I've reinstalled and went through 2 USBs (both 16gb) and a second HDD (60 gb) but it still freezes. I've reformatted and reset cache numerous times and this is my second copy of the game. They really need a patch as this is getting ridiculous. I've only had this 360 for 10 months.
