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 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 gtting ridiculous. I've only had this 360 for 10 months.

 

SAME as me, thing is i can play the whole f*cking game with no problems at ALL, its just this MAIN STORY MISSION thats making my game crash/freeze...

 

 

ok gonna try to " play music and play "

Playing music in the background is not going to stop the freezing. Neither will cleaning your cd/xbox. Neither will clearing cache.

This is a gamebreaking compatibility bug, which will be (hopefully soon) fixed by a patch released by R*.

 

At least, that's what I can conclude from this thread.

I Guess the only thing we can do is be patient.

First time ever writing in a forum and this is out of complete anger and frustration!?! It's been 6 days since purchasing GTA 5 and I am losing my mind, time, sleep and in the process, all hopes of playing this game. Let me start by saying that I have an Xbox slim, purchased for as a gift for me, last december @ Wal-mart as a Skylander bundle and given to me for christmas. My kids bought me this, because they knew that GTA 5 would be coming and my Xbox had died of the RROD. So, this freezing issue is not just happening to the older machines. I also do have an HDMI port and have tried this as well as every other method described by posters here; Installing Disc one to HDD, to USB(3 new USB's in total), installing disc 2, not installing and Etc. I also have a 4gb slim, but took my old HDD and opened it and added it to my slim. In the beginning I was freezing on the very first words of the game ( 9 years pre...), but eventually got to franklins safehouse only to have it start freezing there as soon as I would leave his bedroom. Many reinstalls later, I was able to save at his house and can now respawn there, but only after a reboot from a crash as it will not reload after a crash. Now I get kicked back to the load up screen at the same spot each and every time, which is during the first real mission where Lamar and Franklin are going to repo the Bike. It happens right where the cut scene should initiate as Franklin should start opening the garage door or as I read in the walkthrough book at work. I also read that if you failed a mission 3 times, that you could skip it, so I thought I would try that out and see if I could finally get past this. After driving my car through the fence and failing this the required 3x's I got that option and accepted it......but it keeps going back to this mission!?! I am really losing my mind and my patience has already left a while ago.........I am also out of $60 and ROCKSTAR NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!! I know that they don't want this problem to get to much coverage, so they will probably ignore us as long as they can, so they can keep selling their faulty game. We need to use these forums and our words to pressure for a fix. I wish us all luck towards a day when we can all enjoy this purchase, which will be my final if something is not done soon!!!

Hey, I made it into a Kotaku article.

Not sure why the headline is older 360s when mine is an as new slim 250GB.

Anyway, 24 hours later the temporary fix from Xbox Support is still working for me.

It's strange that you sometimes seem to get more play time after a reinstall, I've been reinstalling but keeping my save file and each time I'll get a little further into the game before it freezes. I just can't bring myself to play that tutorial again.

purplebunny

what was your problem ?

 

Nearly every issue you can think of. Freezing, lagging, pop-in, blurred textures, vanishing roads, low-FPS, not loading past the "loading story" screen, device error and so on. All fixed by what Xbox Support told me to do. This is on a 250GB Slim, not an 'older model.'
