Fix for occasional texture loading and temporary freezing (Xbox)


Recommended Posts

A friend of mine recently told me about this method, and it worked very well for me.


Step 1: Go to the Xbox live dashboard and scroll over to settings and click on System (Should be the first button on the left)


Step 2: When the menu comes up showing Console settings, Kinect settings, storage, etc...Click storage.


Step 3: Scroll down to hard drive and press Y, this will bring up a menu asking whether to rename, format (DO NOT PRESS THIS, IT WILL DELETE YOUR WHOLE HARD DRIVE) clear system cache, and transfer content.


Step 4: Click on Clear system cache, this will do a very small maintenance on your hard drive. After you have done this, load up GTA 5 and you should notice that it runs much smoother and the textures load much faster.


Conclusion: Before doing this, texture would load extremely slow for me and would often cause my screen to freeze for 10 seconds, I couldn't join online without timing out a few times. (Which I would of thought was an internet problem, but after doing this I rarely ever time out when joining a session.) My game runs much smoother then it used to.


Give this method a try. It worked for me so I don't see how it wouldn't work for anyone else.


Edit: Post your results below, here's another example, it used to take me around 4 minutes to load up story mode, now it only takes around 30 to 40 seconds max,

It'll start doing it again soon. This only fixes it temporary. ;)

I did this about 2 weeks ago and my game still runs very well. Even if it may be temporary, it still helped me a lot, I just thought I would share since I see other users have problems with temporary screen lock up and with textures not loading properly or very slowly.

Maybe this will help me. I have been experiencing frequent freezes and sometimes my beach bum and capture packs have to be reinstalled since patch 1.11

Patch 1.11 has been freezing alot of people's consoles lately, i had to delete some game data on my ps3 in order to reduce the freezing problem. I even re-installed all the patches again. It hasn't frozen yet after i did this but still R* needs to fix that with the next patch hopefully

Facepalm, are you guys really serious that you don't know about clearing cache? It's not even the system cache you need to clear it's the game cache you need to clear
