Complete re-install to fix bugs?

Just thought I'd ask if a complete re-install sounds fair, as this is what Rockstar have advised I do for the last coulple of bugs I've ticketed to them.

 

They assure me no game data or progress will be lost, but the thought of having to install the whole game again, plus all the updates, and all the reboots such an operation involves, really makes me dread the whole thing.

1. What bugs, specifically?

2. What platform are you on?

PS4.

 

1) Can't do parachute jumps (from designated spots, not freeroam jumps) as when I jump, the 'deploy parachute' and 'retry' options are allocated to the same button (both on X) - so that when I try to open my chute, it just throws me back to the jump point to try again.

 

2) I bought two aircraft, one each for Trevor and Franklin, but they won't spawn in their hangers and I don't get the 'Press > to choose aircraft' when entering the hanger.

Sometimes it helps out to reinstall, it's a long process but it usually works out for the best.. just make sure to backup your saves just in case.

I suppose.

 

Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, but how do I back up saves, exactly?

Settings > Application Saved Data Management > Saved Data in System Storage >

 

Now from here, if you have a USB Flash Drive then choose the "Copy to USB Storage Device" option

If you don't then just choose "Upload to Online Storage (Cloud)" but it's only available if you're a PS+ user I believe.

 

And you're done, afterwards if you re-install and somehow lose your saves (which I don't think would happen) you'll be able to access it there.
